10 Minute Craft Dash Birthday Bash (blog hop)

Supplies: Orange foam, birthday hat template, pre-cut foam stars from different colors, orange hair band, silicone glue, blue embroidery thread.

Hello everyone, I’m so happy that Paulina is celebrating their Craft Dash Birthday Bash, I’m so lucky to be in the Design Team. To celebrate this fabulous 1st year we’re having a PARTY!!! woooho with many guest designers which is equal to many great inspirational ideas and LOTS of Prizes. Shall we begin?



You should have arrived from Jennifer Rzasa‘s blog, but if you get lost you can go to Pretty Pink Posh blog for the entire list of designers.

For this Birthday Bash, I could make a card but I was in need for a birthday hat for Rayo.

I don’t have kids but my kids are my 2 Jack Russells, so when their Birthdays are coming I try to prepare something special for them, I made a while ago a pink birthday hat for Tormenta and every single year in her birthday I took a photo of her with her hat so I can have a history of her birthdays, I made the same thing with Rayo but Rayo have a paper hat ( like Tormenta’s hat before the pink one) but paper is a very weak material for dogs not for humans lol. So my mission was to make a birthday hat for Rayo from foam.

The challenge is to make the project in 10 minutes or less for that reason I put my materials outside. I used a birthday hat template to cut the shape on the orange foam then I glued the two ends and wait a few seconds and put a clothepin to secure it so I could have my two hands free to keep working while the glue dries. I make the pom pom with two of my fingers, wrapping around the embroidery thread many times, as many times you wrap the thread you will get a fuller pom pom. When I finished the pom pom I adhered it to the top of the hat and also adhered the foam stars.

The final step was cutting the hair band in two pieces and make a knot inside the two holes and tie the two ends. Thank god I finished on time lol, the pom pom was the item I spent the most of the time doing it.

My time was:

If you’re still with me I have a surprise and what prizes you can win in this blog hop, are you ready???

    I am so impressed that you have a bilingual blog. I can’t even manage to keep up a blog in one language. My two dogs have special hats but they never sit still long enough with the hats on for a photo.
