Quinceañera Masquerade Centerpiece

On December 2016, my family and I celebrated my sister’s Quinceañera with a Masquerade Party. I made everything, from the invitations, centerpieces, party favors, big Mask, etc. It was really fun and easy to do. 

Most of the materials like the dolls, the archs, styrofoam circles and flowers, I found on a website called http://www.lacrafts.com. The masks, pipe cleaner, kebab sticks, where at the dollar store. The paint andrhinestone ribbon were in Walmart. 

The colors for the quinceañera were fuchsia and black.

Let’s start with the project!

Materials:

Steps:

  1. Paint the styrofoam disk with the fuchsia paint and a sponge brush. It doesn’t have to cover it completely, just a little paint to give it color. Wait until it dries completely.
  2. Glue the rhinestone ribbon to the border with a little hot glue.
  3. Practice putting everything in the place you want before gluing it. I separated the base from the archway and use it as a candle holder.
  4. For the mask, I gluedone kebab   stick in each side and cover them with pipe cleaner. I also glued a feather in each side amd  cover it with another plastic less elaborated mask found in the Dollar Store in the other side to make it 3d because the tables used were round.
  5. Glue everything on place.
  6. Decorate the candle with some ribbon and a flower. Glue it to the base and put a necklace covering around it.
  7. I also decorated the archways with flowers. 
  8. Stick the mask pushing it against the foam until in place.
  9. Add desire embelishments. I used some Sweet 15 embelishments that I found on my local Farmers Market, but L.A. Crafts also have them.

Change the colors for the ones of your party!

You can also make this for a wedding taking out the mask and changing the Quinceañera doll for a bride and groom figurine

Christmas Centerpiece


Like I said in previous posts, this Christmas I have made tons of crafts. Beginning with ornaments, centerpieces, hanging decorations, etc… I use almost all the materials from the Dollar Tree Store, so they end up being beautiful and most importantly cheap. 

I knew I needed a centerpiece for my dinner table, so I decided to make one with ornaments too because that’s what most of my decorations are made for. It is very easy and looks good! Let’s see how to make it.

You will need:

  • Glass vase (I used a little round one, but you can choose anyone you like. Just make sure your ornaments are going to fit through it.)
  • Ornaments (use different sizes and colors)
  • Bouquet (I used a little glittery branches bouquet, but you can use poinsettias or any other you want)

Instructions:

  1. Start putting the ornaments inside the glass vase. Accomodate in the way you like them.
  2. Cut the glittery branches with a wire cutter and accomodate in the center and covering some of the spaces.

Easy like that! You have a beatiful centerpiece. If you want a bigger one, just use a bigger vase and more ornament. I did a little one because my table is not too big. You can also put a candle in the center instead of flowers. 

Hope you liked the idea and don’t forget to comment and share! 

Happy Holidays!
