Art Birthday Party Decorations

My daughter is obsessed with all things art. There is always some kind of craft project in the works for her! That’s why when we were deciding on a birthday party theme, we knew she needed an art birthday party! When it comes to birthday party decorations, I like to make an impact, but I don’t want to go completely overboard like a lot of the parties that are found online. It just isn’t realistic! I am excited to share our art birthday party decorations with you today! Don’t forget to come back tomorrow to get all of the details on the activities that we did for the party.

How to Make a Balloon Arch

I have made a balloon arch for several birthday parties and each time I have made one, I get asked how to make it. I have tried to explain it, but figured I might as well actually share how to make a balloon arch on here! Balloon arches are so easy to make and they can make a huge impact. They can be used for birthday parties, weddings, and any holiday party ever. They can add flowers, leaves, pom poms, or anything else you want to make them unique.

Music has always played a big part in how I am inspired. I can’t sing and I can’t play instruments, so I have to share that inspiration in a way that doesn’t involve music. That’s why I am so excited about my new Album Cover Makeup series! Every month, I will have a new music album that has inspired me in some way or has somehow shaped who I am. I can’t even put to words how excited I am for this series! It is my passion project for the year. I know that it isn’t something that most of you are as passionate about as I am, but I hope that you can get excited to see what albums are featured and what crazy things I come up with every month!

Loose Waves with a Curling Iron

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hot Tools. All opinions are 100% mine.

Loose waves are always in style! It’s a hairstyle that has been around for generations and they aren’t going anywhere soon! The problem is that many women don’t know how to create perfect loose waves. They are so easy to do! You just need the right tools to do it! I have found that the easiest way to create the perfect loose waves is with a curling iron.

Floral Pumpkin Mod Podge Craft

Several years ago, I saw a tutorial for a damask pumpkin that I totally fell in love with. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make one of my own.
