Recently my friend’s baby turned one and to celebrate we wanted to do an under-the-sea themed smash the cake shoot. I was really excited about this as it meant I could do my second favourite thing (first being photography!) which is crafting!
I decided to make some cute shell bunting to hang across the backdrop of the shoot. Here’s how I did it…
Materials I used:
- Blue, white and purple thin foam sheets which you can get from most craft stores, or online
- Sharpie pens
- Clear thread
- A glue gun
How I did it
Unfortunately I didn’t get any photos of the next steps but all I did was use a glue gun to add a small amount of glue to the back of the shells and then stick the clear thread to the glue. You could use strong sellotape if you don’t have access to a glue gun.
Here’s what it looked like on the shoot:
As well as the shell bunting, I also made 2 other types of bunting for the 1st birthday party. Check them out below:
Hope this post has inspired you to get your DIY on for decorations!
