really wanted to do something special for my toddler. At first I wanted to have a fairy dress-up
tea party then princess and I finally decided to wait on the tea party and just
have a princess party. Her party is this
Saturday and I still haven?t decided if she will be dressed as a princess or
not. So my new best friend is
Pinterest. I have found so many cute
ideas that I can use for the party. The
first thing I wanted for all our party guests were tiaras so I began
color of choice 3 x 22 inches
Water Soluble Disappearing Ink $4.99
tread or matching floss
of a square 2 X 2 inches
Glue Spots $4.00
really cute felt tiara idea on Pinterest from Hellobee (she has great illustrations). I dug out all my leftover pieces of
pink felt from my daughter’s poodle skirt I made, and began to think of ways to
create the perfect tiara. I searched for
templates, but either you had to purchase them or the documents would not
open. So I looked through all our math
manipulatives and found a square. I used
the square as a stencil to create the perfect tiara. Then I used Singer Water Soluble Disappearing
Ink to trace the square. Although the
tutorial I found was excellent I didn?t want to go out and spend money on extra
felt to incorporate the two-tone effect.
Instead I just used what I had and since felt stretches it was the
perfect material to create a fitted tiara. If you have a toddler you know they either
love or hate hats. This tiara doesn?t feel like they are wearing a hat at all. I am also creating two crowns in case boys
show up and I just happened to have a yellow and a deep green.
all my tiaras/crowns cut out I pinned them where I wanted to sew them. I prefer to sew, but you could just as easily
use floss and hand stitch yours. I used
the zig zag stitch just for fun and secured all my tiaras.
is my daughter’s 3rd birthday I wanted to have a craft for her
guests. The party guests will mostly
consist of family, but we have invited a couple of her friends from her Sunday
school class. My daughter’s favorite
craft lately is stickers. While we were
out shopping for material for my latest sewing project I found Foamies Stickers
Princess on sale for $4.99 for a tub of princesses and accessories. All you have to do is choose your princess
and then choose all her accessories. Then
you stick everything to a star. She loved
creating her example for her party quests.
This is so simple for toddlers to do by themselves and they love
stickers!!! Just in case you could have
an older child sit at the craft table and help as needed.
wipe/wet wipe containers
spray paint $3.27
Glue Spots $4.00
Stickers Princess $4.99
for our quests so I started worrying that we may need another craft. So back to Pinterest I went and began
searching. I found another great site
that had tons of great ideas for princess parties, One Creative Mommy (she has tons of great ideas). She used wet wipe containers, but I have an
abundance of baby wipe containers instead.
All you have to do is spray paint your containers of choice gold to
represent treasure chests. Then the party
quests are ready to embellish their treasure chests with leftover foamies
stickers from your princess stickers and fake jewels that you can purchase at
any store that sells crafts. I just
happened to have a ton leftover from a previous project for the guests to
use. The only thing I had to purchase
was Elmer’s Glue Spots. They are just as
easy to use as stickers for your toddlers.
Your guest places Elmer’s Glue Spots wherever they want to place their
jewels. The best part is you have no
my latest find for the princess birthday party.
The girls and I were shopping for plates and such for the party and
racked up at the Dollar Tree, can?t beat the price.
sets of 18 piece plates $2.00
sets of 20 piece luncheon napkins $2.00
Party Letter Banner $1.00
table cloth (plan to cut to fit kids tables) $1.00
