How to

DIY Aqua polka dot peep toe pumps (say that 5 times fast)

I came up with this idea when I couldn’t find the shoes I am looking for. These are inspired by Minnie Mouse and the complete lack of aqua colored polka dotted heels. What do you think?


Make a Pomander!


I start by pinning a ribbon loop to the styrofoam ball.

I then pull the carnations off of their stem.

Push the carnations into the ball until the ball is covered.

Steps to make a tissue paper flower

1. Gather your supplies:

  • Tissue Paper
  • Floral Wire
  • Scissors
  • Wire Cutters (if you dont want to cut the wire with scissors)

2.  Cut the tissue into rectangles (approx. 5inches x 10inches)

3.  Take 5 rectangles and accordian fold them approximately 8 times.

4.   Take about 10 inches of floral wire and wrap it around your bundle. Twist the wire to hold itself together. This is the stem of your flower.

5.  For a more refined looking flower use scissors to round the edges of your petals.

6. Begin separating the layers of tissue. Be careful not to rip the flower.

7. Congratulations on your beautiful paper flower.
