What a great gift this would be to your child when they turn eighteen or graduate. This design incorporates baby clothes and are made into a quilt. I don’t know that much about quilting but this is an absolute awesome idea. You could even incorporate clothing pieces from your child’s outgrown clothes throughout the years.
This is so simple and cheap and makes a huge impact of color that can be hung from a ceiling or tree or from whatever is above you on your next celebration. When balloon is blown up add a penny to the balloon before you blow it up. This is just the perfect amount of weight to stabilize the balloon so it will hang with little movement from wind or air conditioning. Pictured is all white for a wedding – but think about what your color combinations are for your event and play them up. Multicolored would do for a birthday party; white silver/gold for anniversary; colors of a school for graduation; red white and blue for Fourth of July or Memorial Day; red pink and white for Valentines Day – the possibilities are endless. You could literally have hundreds of these for under ten dollars. Major impact of color(s) and you will be sure to have people in awe.
Blow up balloons and with a needle and thick thread thread them together to make a balloon garland. This is very cheap and a great way to add a lot of color to a party. You can use thread but would be more secure if you used embroidery thread. Mix and match colors for your theme to go with the colors of a school for graduation or just go random for a birthday party. This can be something done at the last minute as well as you can get everything you need and have it ready to go.
Cut 3″ squares out of black poster board and use a sharpie marker and mark the edges. Use a gold or silver paint pen and trace a square on top of each square as seen in the picture. Take a six inch length of ribbon (this can be color co-ordinated to work with the schools color just as the black poster board can be changed) and glue it to the top of the black poster board. Hot glue the black square with the square you made on it facing up to the small end of a mini Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup. Top with a small black sequin or bead to cover the glued ends of the ribbon to make a finished look. These would make great party favors or would make a great gift with several placed with tissue paper in a gift box.
