And the Summer Fiesta party hop continues! Today I’m hosting a tutorial here for diy balloon tassels, fringe, flags, whatever you like to call them. But be sure to hop on over to the other blogs and see their fun tutorials as well (hello succulent centerpieces!!).

Have you seen all of the cute tassels on party balloons lately? I love it. It makes balloons more festive and adds a pop of color to any party. Plus kids like the extra detail, even if they don’t appreciate all of your effort. This is a slight variation on the usual fringe and it’s really easy.

Balloon Fringe

To make these adorable DIY Balloon Flags you will need: tissue paper, cotton twine, balloons, glue

Directions: First, cut a rectangle of tissue paper, about 4 inches by 7 inches. Fold the tissue paper in half and fringe the edges. Unfold the tissue paper and put glue down the fold line. Fold the tissue paper over the twine. Scrunch the tissue paper together. Let the glue dry. Glue more tissue flags onto the twine until you have as much as you need. It’s that quick!

Are you and your kids looking for an easy and cute Easter basket this year? Get them creating their own with a few simple supplies from around the house.

DIY Easter Basket

Have you noticed the awesome variety of different colors and patterns of Scotch® Duct Tape that are available? These tapes are perfect for crafting.

What you will need to create your own duct tape Easter Baskets:
-empty tin
-variety of Scotch® Duct Tape – I used Sea Blue and Paisley Princess

Directions: First, Line the top and the bottom of your tin can with Sea Blue duct tape. Next, take a long piece of tape and fold it in half length-wise. This piece will be your handle. Tape the handle piece into place by putting more tape around the middle of the tin. Tape the floral Paisley Princess duct tape around the tin. I love how the pattern repeats on the tape. I was able to match up the pattern so I didn’t have any mismatched pattern on my tin.

Easter Basket How To

Last, add a little embellishment if you’d like. Fill your tin with paper grass, and send your children out to hunt for eggs!

I am so excited for spring. For the past few weeks I haven’t been able to resist buying flowers whenever I’m at the store. I’m sure I can blame it on the anticipation of spring almost being here.

Spring Cupcakes

In honor of spring, add a little floral spring to your cupcakes! Paper flowers are always popular, but let’s try something different today. Let’s make some adorable little spring flower cupcakes out of silk flowers. These little flower toppers would be perfect for a spring shower, brunch, or even an early summer picnic.

You Will Need: small silk flowers, mod podge, tooth picks, scissors

Directions: First, cut the flower off the stem near the top. Dip the tooth pick into the mod podge. Stick the tooth pick into the bottom of the silk flower. Let the glue dry. Once it is dry, top your cupcakes with a small garden of flowers.

Spring Cupcake How To

And, quick tip, aren’t these aqua cupcake liners fabulous? I am in love with how well they hold up during baking. You can find them here.
