I hope you all had a good time for the New Year's Eve!
We continue having fun with recycled materials - we've celebrated the New Years Eve in this way as well.
I've mentioned in the previous post that I have prepared a surprise for our little guests on New Year's Eve celebration.
The original idea comes from Spoonful.com but I've simplified it and adapted to the materials we already had.
I've wrapped cardboard boxes in a nice decorative paper (this step is not necessary, but it certainly contributes to the aesthetic aspect) and pasted them one to another, in the desired shape. I also filled balloons with oatmeal flakes (really gives a great, rustling sound) and tied them with a decorative bow at small toy brooms, which I then fastened to the box by adhesive tape. And that's it! It was really not hard at all, my biggest problem was to find a piece of decorative paper large enough to wrap the entire box, as you can see from the photos.
Instead of the brooms, I originally intended to use cardboard rolls, but the girls tore them, while I was wrapping the boxes. In the meantime they began fencing with these small brooms quite near TV set, so I quickly found a replacement for the cardboard rolls.
Try it, it 's really not hard, I would like you to write in the comments how you've done it.
This year for our New Year's celebration, I also tried some new recipes and I intend to make them available as a mini e-book, so feel free to stop by again these days.
