Yesterday I showcased how to make balloon flowers, today I’ll show you how to make your own decorations for any birthday party – but in this case, Monster High birthday decorations.
First off, I copied some images from the internet (I know, shame on me!) and played with them a bit in PicMonkey.com to get sizing and wording etc.
I had the skulls printed on a bit heavier cardstock; something with a bit of weight and a sheen to it.
The “Ghoul Aid” and the “Thank you” I had printed on sticky labels and then cut them to size.
Want to see what all this printing is for? Check out how to make your own birthday decorations for a Monster High birthday:
Our frightful drinks:
are really just Kool-Aid Jammers with a sticker on the front – but the kids LOVED them.
The Monster High skulls I used as centrepieces.
I just used a few paint sticks and glued them between a couple of pieces of wood.
I used a bit of spray-paint to keep in the Monster High colour scheme and added ribbons to hide the seams.
Glue a skullette on each side and voila – you’ve made adorable birthday decorations!
The Monster High birthday “Thank you” labels I just cut and attached to the outgoing Goodie bags with a glue stick.
Finally, I e-mailed my best friend Brenda at Cakes on Wheels and asked if she could make me a cake with both “Webarella” and “Power Ghoul Toralei” to complete our Monster High birthday theme.
This is the image I gave her to work from;
You know she came through for me (and have I told you she DELIVERS!?)
With the flower balloons from yesterday and a pink chocolate fountain… I think the party was a hit!
Whether I want my baby to turn 6 or not (sniff, sniff).
Happy 6th Birthday my beautiful Angel!
Have a great one!
