Good Tutorial Thursday morning from Postscripts!
To get the kids involved at our wedding celebration (we have 13, almost 14 nieces and nephews), we gave them each Star Fairy Wands and let them run down the aisle as an alternative to flower girls and ring bearers!
They absolutely loved it!
Happy Monday friends! It has been so cold in Arizona….we are freezing! 🙂
I am sharing how to make this gorgeous centerpiece! Well….it is not my original idea Nikki from Tikkido is super amazingly talented. I love her crafty ideas. Be sure to check out her blog some time!
Happy Tutorial Thursday! Paula from Postscripts here again to teach you how to make an Affordable Party Sign!
Wood Board (I found mine in the field out in the back field.)
Stencils (Walmart $3.50)
Sponge Stencil Brush
Glitter (I found this old glitter in my mom’s craft supplies)
Paint (I used leftover paint from our house)
Note: You do not need the big black lab. Buster wanted to be in on the action. (see feet above)
1. Tape down the stencils with the painter’s tape making it pretty tight.
2. Dab on a surplus of paint (I wish I would have done it thicker)
4. Looking good so far!
5. Quickly spread on glitter in excess.
6. Remove glitter and fill empty spots with glue and more glitter.
If you use plenty of paint in step 2, you won’t need this step.
6. Tada! Now you have an affordable sign that can be used over and over!
In other news, we got snow on our mountains here in Colorado yesterday!
Where are you from and what’s the weather like there?
Hi! Welcome to Tutorial Thursday on the A to Zebra Celebrations Blog!
This is Paula from Postscripts!
Tex and I eloped last year and are having a 1 year wedding celebration next month with all our friends and family. In order to make this a memorable event, we want to make sure to include everyone, including our three kiddos! What better way than to involve a pinata? I wanted to glam it up a little so I added a little gold! You are welcome to be creative and make it any color you would like to match your party!
I hope you enjoy my first tutorial!
Pinata (bought here for $17 + shipping – so many different shapes and possibilities!)
Glue Gun + Glue Sticks
Gold Metallic Spray Paint (or other to match your color)
Gold Metallic Tissue Sheets (bought here as well – lots of colors available!)
1. Spray the Pinata to match your paper
2. Cut Metallic Tissue Sheets length wise into 6″ strips (the strips will be 6″ x 30″)
3. Cut strips between 4″-5″ from the bottom to form the fringe
4. Begin gluing at the bottom
5. Continue gluing the strips around the pinata about 2 inches above the last fringe.
Add as much fringe or put each strip as close to the next as you would like.
(sometimes I had to trim the fringe and sometimes I had to add more fringe to make it all the way around)
6. Enjoy your finished product! Stuff with goodies and don’t forget the stick and blindfold!
Thank you so much for stopping by! See you next Thursday! 🙂

I was honored to help style a SURPRISE 30th wedding anniversary party! The party was last Saturday September, 4th.
The couple celebrating 30 years of marriage are my friends since 2003. They are very special people to us. My friend, Tiffany contacted me a few weeks before the party to get some ideas. I immediately knew a black and white damask was perfect for a theme. She wanted to include bright green. I was thrilled because I had recently seen this picture from Sandra Downie Event Designs
. She is fantastic! Check her out if you haven’t already. Lots of inspiration from her to put this party together….thank you Sandra!!!
Thank you to my sweet friend, Lisa who came to take these gorgeous pictures!!
