Birthday Arrangement

Hi friends!! I am in the midst of making things for my daughter's birthday party which is this weekend!! I was going to make a gumball topiary but decided against it. I decided to put my Cricut to work instead. I took a dollar pail from Target and covered it with some card stock to hide the polka dot pattern that didn't match the party colors. To hide some imperfections, I added the ribbon to the top part of the pail. The pinwheels are from an earlier post. They are simple to make. I added them at the end because I felt that it was just missing something. All of the cuts are from the Sweet Treats cartridge. The ice cream cone is cut at 4 1/2". Happy Birthday, the party hat and the 5 candle is 4". I attached them to bbq skewers and then poked them down into the Styrofoam. I added some sparkly shredded paper to cover the Styrofoam and there you have it. Simple and easy! I'd love to hear what all you've done for birthday party decor!!
