Welcome back to the Summer Fiesta! Things are just starting to get good around here, and I am super excited to share these next three projects with you (one of them is mine)!
First up, we have these fun balloon fringe flags from One Charming Party. Don't they add so much to the party? Head over for the tutorial!
These Succulent Centerpieces are by Yours Truly, and you can find all the details below!
And lastly, these festive drink stirrers can be found over at Kojo Designs. I love them. And I just can't get enough of all this fringe happening!
Okay, so on to my DIY. If you love fringe, and you love succulents, then this project is right up your alley!
First off, I knew I wanted to incorporate the party's colors right into the planter. I tried a couple different things, but at the end of the day, my favorite "vase filler" was Jelly Belly jelly beans! So, you fill your glass planter with the amount of dirt you need to get the plant the right height. Plant your succulent (dampen the soil--remember they don't need much water), and then top with the right color jelly bean! I love how spot on the colors are. Obviously, you won't be able to keep the jelly beans in for the long term. You wouldn't want to water these live plants with candy in there, so as soon as your party is over, take out the beans and toss.
For the matching tissue paper flags, follow these simple steps.
Cut about 3 layers of tissue paper into a square. Fold your square in half. And then cut fringe, taking care not to cut all the way to the fold.
Tie a string to two bamboo skewers that you stick in the planter, and then hang your tissue paper flag over the string! All done.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and don't forget to stop by the other blogs today for their great tutorials!
