HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Can you believe 2011 will be here in just a few short days? I find it hard to comprehend 2010 is almost over, the year went so quick and what an amazing year it was! In a way I am sad to see it go, but also very excited to experience 2011 and the wonders it holds!
Knock the socks off the party goers and create this amazing centerpiece...here's how!
Start out with three wood circles. I cut mine 9", 12", and 15" circles and used 1/2" MDF board. If you don't have the tools to cut out wood circles, you can always use the cake board forms. They have them in all sizes at the craft stores and even Walmart.
I found these glass vases at Michael's for $1.00 each! They stand about 5" high, creating the perfect space between tiers!
Paint your circles in the color of your choice.
Next I pulled out shimmery glitter paper and cut it into stars and the numbers 2011. I inked the edges to distress them a little then hot glued them onto curled paper, black pipe cleaner and red fuzzy wired ribbon. Did you know you could curl paper to look like curled ribbon? I am sure plenty of you do, but if you don't....wanna know how? SO easy! Cut a strip(s) of paper about 1/4 inch thick. Wrap it around a pencil or dowel and voila! You have curly paper. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
RING IN THE NEW YEAR!
