Last week, I posted my daughters 5th Tangled birthday party! I have gotten several emails on the cupcake tower and thought I would explain in more detail how I created this feature.
Bird house from Michael's
I first decorated the bird house to resemble tower from the movie. I used purple and blue paints for the roof. I used tan and brown for the sides of the tower. I created the vines effect and flowers. This adds a little dimension to the house that was missing before.
I used a Pringles can for the tower. First, I coated with a base in medium gray. Then I took a thick brush and filled in the bricks with both darker and lighter tones of gray.
To assemble, I flipped the can over and used a hot glue gun to attach the house to the bottom of the Pringles can.
Then I placed the open end of the can over the serving platter handle.
You can add a braid,
which is absolutely adorable,
to hang out of the peep hole in the bird house, like I did above. I just used yellow yarn. This is a great way to add a personalized touch to a party with out spending a whole lot of money.
Cost Break down:
- Birdhouse: $4.99 @ Michael's
- Ikea serving platter: $14.99
- Pingles can: $1
- Acrylic Paint: $1/color = $8
Total cost was $29.00
The best part, you get to use the serving platter for future parties!
