A paper clay doll – a wedding cake topper

We got the wedding fever over here, because Eva is getting married in less than a year. Ohhhhh, so exciting, but so much to do and because we are usually doing it all by ourselves, why not try making a wedding cake topper.

After researching wedding toppers, Eva realized that any custom toppers are over a hundred dollars and that is just too much, so she started to play around with our favorite paper clay recipe (her current obsession) that was featured on the blog in the beginning of the year.

This doll won’t be the actual wedding topper because it is still too rough around the arms and chest and need to be worked on just a little more. Also the actual wedding topper will be even more personalized possibly with an alligator or maybe a compound bow or some other passion. This doll became a princess and was adopted by Olivia, my 3 year old daughter.

This was only the second try and I can’t wait to see the future dolls. The first one was just clay and the facial features were too rough and she was a little lopsided. This time, Eva bought a small doll, which happened to be a mermaid from the dollar store, to use as the base. Since we only needed the actual skull and upper torso, Eva removed the hair, make up, arms and mermaid tail.

To shape the dress, Eva used aluminum foil and covered it in clay. She also made the hair out of clay and shaped new arms and flowers. The doll had to dry 7-10 days.

She tried to smooth the skin and shape the collar bones with a file but it didn’t work as expected and is still too rough. To mimic her own skin color, Eva mixed several colors. It turned out a little more orange. She colored the hair, the flowers, made a little necklace and of course most importantly drew her face back on. She used acrylic paint and nail polish to get some shine and glitter.

In the end, the doll came out very cute and Olli loves to play with her. Can’t wait to see what Eva comes up with next.

Mother’s Day DIY gift, a cute Popsicle Puzzle from the heart…

IMG_9719

Mother’s Day is almost here and we have the perfect DIY gift idea. A Popsicle Puzzle…. Personally I don’t want my kids spending money for a present or need a big gift. The perfect present would be a long nap by myself followed by something small and meaningful from the heart that is cheap or free.

My kids love to color and paint. A couple weeks ago I had asked my 8 year old and 11 year old to draw something nice for our art wall. Both of my kids were not sure what to draw, so I gave them some inspiration. Paint something special for me, Mami. Something that I would like or has something to do with me. The result was two beautiful drawings that mean so much to me.

We decided to use these paintings as inspiration for our puzzle and Eva drew a third picture as a free template to use. But it could be anything, a coupon for a nap for example, a photograph, a card or a copy of a ticket (don’t use the original).

IMG_9709IMG_9710

We copied the original pictures because they were part of the art wall, but you could also use the original masterpieces. Other than that you only need popsicle sticks or craft sticks, pencil, ruler, scissor, glue and an envelope.

IMG_9711

We used 17 popsicle sticks which measured:

6 3/4 inches x 4 1/2 inches or 17.5 centimeter x 11.5 centimeter

We measured in centimeter and cut the masterpieces in 1 cm stripes (make sure that your craft sticks also measure 1 cm or change accordingly)

We glued the paper stripes on the sticks and let them dry overnight.

IMG_9712IMG_9720IMG_9718IMG_9708IMG_9717IMG_9716IMG_9715

Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing Moms everywhere. Not just one day a year, let’s celebrate every day.

Here is our free template for you:

England/London Photo Booth Props are here….

Englandoverview

It’s #photopropsmonday and today we are featuring our latest set: England/London Photo Booth Props. We wanted to make England props for such a long time and finally had the chance, when we received a custom order a few months ago. Country/City props are so much fun and we like to get creative and come up with fun, typical/symbolical props that represent the country or city. Of course there are so many options and props, we could have made (and we had plenty more ideas), but as per usual, we narrowed down the list to 16-20 props and made this lovely and brilliant set. (I would love to make a royal set in the future….. ). What are typical “British” props for you?

You can find the props in our etsy store as printable and ready made props:

We also have England soccer props: (see the end of the blog post for picture)

https://www.etsy.com/listing/600111188/world-cup-england-soccer-photo-booth

or Harry Potter Props (see the end of the blog post for picture)

The backdrop had to be the English flag and we also made a park like setting that can be seen on some of the pictures.

Carrots, Carrots, Carrots…. An Easter Carrot Party

One of my favorite Easter Parties was our Carrot Party. We had a carrot patch for the egg hunt, carrot cake and cookies, huge carrot decoration pieces, carrot invitations, carrot favors, carrot party hats… actually EVERYTHING CARROT….. and we loved it….

IMG_8342

Carrots, orange and green everywhere, more carrots, happy kids…. It was fantastic.

IMG_8355

The Savory and Sweet Tables

We had a savory and sweet table with carrot or Easter inspired food like bunny sandwiches, a carrot cake and cookies, little carrot patch desserts etc….

IMG_8356IMG_8351IMG_8350IMG_8349IMG_8354IMG_8352

We also served some other dishes that we “carrotized” with our personalized carrot decoration,  cupcake toppers, name tags, little orange flags etc. If you are interested, just send us an email to thepartyevent@gmail.com for more information.

More Carrot Decoration and Activities

IMG_8343IMG_8344

The giant carrots served initially as huge decoration pieces in the trees and later as pinatas filled with more goodies for the kids. We also had other activities like a photo booth station to take pictures and a crafting table with some carrot inspired activities for the kids.

The Carrot Patch

IMG_8262

One of my favorite parts of the party was our egg hunt inside the carrot patch. This looked so cute and we hid the eggs behind the carrots, which made it more challenging and fun for the kids. We made the carrots out of foam, glued them on wooden sticks and had them all over the carrot patch. We also had carrot shaped eggs instead of golden eggs with special prices inside them.

 

IMG_8338IMG_8337

IMG_8320

 

IMG_8336

We created an edge with foam Easter eggs on the sides that the kids didn’t enter beforehand. The entrance was closed with streamers and Easter baskets.

IMG_8339IMG_8340IMG_8341

In the end it began to rain, but looking back even this looked beatuiful….

Carrot Invitations for your Easter party and Egg Hunt….

IMG_7167

Easter is coming and you are invited. We created these carrot invitations for our carrot party several years ago and I still love them so much.

An invitation is the first glimpse of a party and teases the guests. When designing an invitation, we like to make it unique and interesting and these carrot invitations are exactly that. If you are intrigued, check out the recap of our Carrot Easter party.  (My favorite was the carrot patch….)

https://thepartyevent.wordpress.com/2019/04/18/carrots-carrots-carrots-an-easter-carrot-party/

IMG_7170

We are also selling the invitations on etsy:

IMG_7168

We can customize the inside of the invitation or the labels. They are also perfect carrot favor boxes and could be filled with jelly beans and other little surprises. And I think my kids will find a carrot with a surprise in their Easter Basket this year…..

Tuesday, April 2nd is Autism Awareness Day

autism1

It’s #photoboothmonday and because tomorrow is Autism Awareness Day, we decided to feature our Autism Awareness Photo Booth props. Many years ago, we were approached by a customer to make Autism props for a special event for her son.  We think Awareness Photo Booth Props are a fun way to get people involved and taking pictures with the props is great to raise awareness and support the cause.
