And in true big sister fashion, Gigi didn’t want to be in the picture, until Daddy was trying to put Rad in the picture…
Look at what a PARTY you’ll have if you make these! Haha.
I have no idea what to call these fun things, so I am calling them Halloween Party Twirlers, because they twirl and they’d look great at a Halloween party! Or you can just use them to turn your house into a party like we did! I saw the idea of using the tissue festooning (the stuff around the edges and on the wall) in Martha Stewart (though I can’t find it now on their site) and I thought it would be great to create some free downloads for you to use with it!
I have a full tutorial on how to make these but first! WIN A PRINTER!
I partnered up with HP, and they sent me a flashy new printer that I used to print these images, as well as a bunch of ink and awesome paper.
And now they are offering a HP Photosmart 7520 Printer to one of you fine folks! As well as a package of ink and paper to go with it! To enter I’m asking you to pin your favorite Halloween post from ME! Then just leave a comment letting me know you did (or already have!). If you pin more than one thing, that counts as more than one entry, so leave one comment for each craft or treat you pin!
As you know, I don’t do giveaways all that often, I think they are kind of annoying. HA! But, I really, really love my HP printer, I’ve had about 3 or 4 different HP printers over the years, and a good color printer really is an awesome thing to have for crafting and DIYs, so I wanted to offer one to you guys!
Ok, enough of that. ON TO THE DIY!
– Tissue Festooning
- My downloads or some other circle of cuteness
- Hot Glue
- Baker’s Twine or String
- A needle
I printed my images on HP Advanced Photo Paper, I like the slight sheen and how durable it made them. Then cut them out.
Using hot glue, glue your two images together around the edges.
Insert your twine at top and hot glue it in place.
Then use hot glue on the VERY edges of your twirler, and glue the festooning around the sides. I would kind of pinch the festooning in place on either side, like folding it over the edges. There is totally a front and a back side on the tissue, so glue the backside on.
When you get close to the string, thread the needle and push the string up through the tissue. Then trim off the end and hot glue the end down. Easy-peasy.
Let those suckers TWIRL!
Ok! Now go and win yourself a printer!
Remember, just pin one or some of my Halloween Posts, then leave a comment[s] telling me you’ve done so!
