Happy Monday afternoon, faces! I’ve been so excited to show you guys this project our DIY contributor Renee Hong sent along last week for the blogadoosh. Are you guys loving Renee’s projects as much as I am? Because no joke, each time she shoots over a new project I’m covered in smile. It gets, like, ALL OVER my face. Two-napkin job.
Anywho, I really think you guys are gonna dig this one! Do let us know! It’s all about the perfect party prop for any occasion, met with the perfect color combo, met with easy instructions, met with inexpensive supplies. That spells quality DIY project ’round these here parts. I pretty much guarantee you I’ll be rocking these at my own wedding THAT’s how much I love them. Ok, take it away, Renee…
Hi friends — Renee here, again!
Today I’ll be showing you how to make fringed noisemakers! Don’t worry, they aren’t anything like the tacky ones you’d find at the party supply store — these are shiny, fun, and can be made in pretty colors to fit any occasion. They’re a perfect way to have your guests send you out at the end of your wedding, or can simply be used to add some spark to an engagement party or shower. Ready to see how easy these are to make? Let’s get started!
What you’ll need:
- Colored tissue paper
- White/ivory tissue paper
- Silver mylar (you can use a roll or the sheets)
- Silver tape (optional, transparent tape works almost as well)
- Noisemaker mouthpieces (not pictured — I used these cheapies and just disassembled the “blowout” part)
Cut your paper!
- One 5″x6″ rectangle of colored tissue paper
- One 2″x6″ rectangle of white tissue paper
- Two 2″x6″ rectangles of silver mylar
Use fringe scissors or regular scissors to fringe each of the rectangles, leaving about half an inch at the top of the sheets.
Take one of the silver mylar pieces and secure the un-fringed side to the end of the noisemaker mouthpiece using tape. Wrap the sheet around the noisemaker and secure the end with tape. Repeat with all of the other sheets — first the colored paper, then the white paper, and ending on top with the second mylar sheet.
Step 4 (optional):
Take a two-inch piece of silver tape and wrap it around completely to polish it off!
That’s it! Told you they were easy!
Thanks to Jenna Rae Photography for snapping these fun photos — she does a stunning job, no?
Now you’ve got some quick, pretty party pieces for your next event! What do you think? :)
