How To Make Honeycomb Pom-Poms - Mr Printables Blog

I’m seeing lovely honeycomb pom-poms floating around here and there and they make me happy! They seemed quite straight forward to make so I tried making them with some tissue papers I had. It turned out really well – easy to make and quite satisfying, so I’ve made this little tutorial for you. It’s magical when you first open them up into a ball! You can use any thin paper you have and get creative with color combinations. You need: tissue papers, glue stick (soft new one!) How to make Honeycomb Pom-poms 1. Take multiple sheets of tissue paper and layer them on top of each other, now fold these in half to make double the layers, then fold in half again to create loads of layers. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Taa-daa! Glue the cardboard ends back to back to form a sphere. Now, I’ll show you the different pitches of the lines you drew at Step 3 and how this affects the size of the honeycomb cells and density of the pom-poms. Aren’t they pretty?

Hanging Fabric Ribbon Hoop DIY Aug 29 by Chiara Alberetti Milott What do you do when you’re co-hosting a baby shower, you’re in charge of decorations, and you live 612 miles away from the shower location? Perhaps you’d make these hanging ribbon hoops and pack them in your suitcase, ready to unfurl and hang when you arrive the morning of the party. Since I live in New York and the shower was in Ann Arbor, Michigan, I needed to make some suitcase-friendly, portable decorations. Materials needed: strips of fabric, hula-hoop, scissors. Step 1: Cut your fabric into 2” x 40” – 48” strips. Step 2: Fold a strip of fabric in half, lay it under the hoop, and then flip the bend of the strip over the hoop. Step 3: Continue all the way around, until you have enough fabric strips to cover the hula-hoop. Step 4: Shake out and smooth the fabric ribbons down, and hang. My friend Abigail’s beautiful baby boy arrived 6 weeks early – so he was able to make an appearance at his own baby shower. Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

DIY Washi Tape Laptop Keyboard Look whose little old MacBook got a facelift this weekend! I spotted this idea from minifanfan on Making It Lovely last week and just had to give it my own spin. I purchased my Japanese washi tape from Le Box Boutique on Etsy. I chose these ten patterns but only ended up using eight of them on my keyboard. I first thoroughly cleaned my keyboard with rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt or oil that might keep the tape from sticking. I originally wanted to do all the keys, including the small keys in the top row, but the tape seemed to have a harder time sticking to the small keys. This project was a bit tedious but simple – perfect for a few hours in front of the tv. What do you think? Tagged as: craft, diy, tutorial
