Kaids First Birthday


Today the Rock Mills Gang will be celebrating Kaid McCarley's first birthday.  Is he not the cutest thing.  Lyndi is doing a Mickey Mouse themed party and I was asked to make 6 table decorations.  Pinterest was my choice of picking out some ideas and I found the perfect centerpiece.  This is what the Pinterest one looked like. 
Yesterday, I made the six centerpieces.  The Pinterest one called for styrofoam balls painted black to be the head....BUT, when I painted the balls...a strange snap, crackle, pop sound began.  The paint was making the balls shrink.  Fortunately I have a husband who can do scroll saw work, I printed off a clip art Mickey head and he cut me 6.  Here is my finished product.

Whoever said DIY was cheaper than buying was not 100% .  I have 100.00 invested in these six table centerpieces...just in materials!  I wonder how much they would have cost to buy them already made?  Just asking.  I loved making them and it really put the fire for crafting back in me.
