What is Art Lounge Like? Part 4.....Celebrations

Art Lounge is a community of student artists, coming together each week to talk about art and create art. We eat, we paint, we blog. It is an amazing experience each week to share with friends at Spiva.

Recently, we celebrated a birthday with a little party, complete with ice cream cake and decorations. 

 We made our own decorations using Martha Stewart's guidance. Click here to see how to make your own tissue paper pom poms.

A close up of the party hats. Want to make your own?

Print out a blank party hat template on a sheet of white cardstock. Find the PDF here.
Make a pompom for the top using yarn. See a tutorial here.
Paint your party hat with water color paint. Let it dry, shape it into a cone. Add a sticker, staple some elastic on the bottom and hot glue the pom pom to the top. You could also add some fun fringe along the bottom edge. 

This was a memorable night...after hanging all the decorations as a 'surprise' for the birthday girl, we found out that it was sort of her worst nightmare. She hates it when things hung from the ceiling float back and forth, she is always worried that ghosts or something are controlling them. Haha, we had a good laugh about our new pretty pom pom classroom decorations.
