I am Karin from the The Style Sisters and I am so excited to be a new contributor here on the Lou Lou Girls blog!
Such a great group of women here!!
So, the other day I needed some paper umbrellas for a fun Cub Scout treat I was going to have the boys make for our den meeting but could not find any while I was out and about.
I was running out of time and decided I could probably whip some up!
I found a few tutorials on the internet and added a few embellishments of my own.
STEP1 – First I found the lid of a jar about 2 1/2″ -3″ around and traced around it on the back of some fun colorful scrapbook paper I had laying around
STEP 2- I cut around each circle shape with some fun craft scissors to make a ruffled looking edge. Then I cut out a little pie shape out of one side.
STEP 3- I used hot glue on one side of the pie shape
STEP 4- I attached the glued side over the non glued side to make a small cone shape
You can play with it to make it the shape you want. A low umbrella or a high umbrella..just have fun with it.
I wanted to make sure it had a nice point on the tip
Step 5- Inside I added a dab of hot glue and poked the toothpick through to the other side.
You don’t want the toothpick to come out too far just a little bit.
STEP 6- I had these tiny tiny pom poms leftover from some scrapbooking project that I never did so I added a dab of hot glue to the pom pom and stuck it on there. I think they turned out sooo cute!
I used them for a dessert called Beach Pudding Cups…recipe on my blog. This little dessert teaches the boys how to make something fun for their family. They totally got into making these! It is a little more creative than making dirt cups 😉
At the Style Sisters I am always finding something to do that is fun and creative
