Pin the candle on the cupcake?...a soon to be classic in this household and maybe yours too.
I gave you a little glimpse of this project here. Did anyone guess right?
I never actually planned to make this game out of fabric. When planning Lily's first birthday party I envisioned some disposable poster board type thing. I'm not really sure how it evolved from paper to fabric but I'm glad it did. I'm pretty happy with the results and it was simple to make.
Here are the deets:
- It's made out of felt and some jumbo ric rac trim.
- I made 10 candles and used a 2 inch strip of no sew sticky velcro on the backs.
- The polka dots I drew freehand on freezer paper that were stenciled in with tulip soft fabric paint and the colors came in a pack called retro. You had me at retro. The purple and yellow paint were bought seperately.
- I still have to figure out a way to hang it up because the packaging tape I used here just isn't going to cut it come party time. I thought about making a pocket at the top and using a dowel and ribbon. Or maybe grommets? I'm just not sure how well they work in felt. Any suggestions?
Should be a hit at Lily's party!!
Thanks for stopping by!
