Take Ten to DIY...

I'm already planning Skyelynn's first birthday party. The theme is zebra stripes and I'll be accenting with bright colors. The kids and I went to the store to pick out some zebra party stuff when I saw these:

It's a tissue paper ball decoration. I put a couple in my cart and then decided to put them back. I have tissue paper, I have time, and I have kids that like projects. Right then and there I decided to make these myself. Guess what? They're really easy. 

Step one: Get some tissue paper. Lucky for us I save tissue paper from birthday parties. My husband doesn't understand why I do it, but why throw away something that can be reused? 

Step two: Look up instructions for making said decorations.

Step three: Follow directions. I found the instructions on a Martha Stewart website. 

Step four: Enjoy your new decoration. 

So, this didn't turn out as perfect as Martha Stewart's but I expected that. I'm not a perfectionist but it did turn out cute, right?

Step five: Teach your kids how to make them.

DIY project was successful!

Take Ten!
