Princess Fruit Wands DIY

What more fun to add to a princess party than fruit wands? I believe every princess needs her own wand so the minute I saw the fun Princess Collection I knew I had to make them. They are super easy to put together and everyone will love them. Even the adults HA! Are you ready for this? Let’s go!

Supplies

  • Watermelon
  • Blueberries
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Cookie cutters

Directions:

  1. Cut out slices of watermelon, thick enough for you to create shapes using your cookie cutters.
  2. Once you have a few shapes ready, slide your fruit on your skewers alternating the fruit as you wish. That’s it! I told you these were easy!

The fun thing about these is that the possibilities are endless when it comes to mixing both shapes and fruit. Cannot wait to make them using pineapple and strawberries next. I just loved the mix of “purple” and “pink” for this round.

What do you think? Will these be making an appearance at your next Princess party?

Kim from NewlyWoodwards is here to share her fun 90th birthday ideas and decorations honoring a man who loves baseball and beer. She let’s us know what went into planning the celebration and with the theme picked out for the birthday boy, all that was left was the party décor. With endless party decoration ideas out there it can be hard to find a special piece that is unique and fun. Kim is here with a piece that doubles as a decoration and a gift for her grandfather!  Follow her steps to create your own DIY baseball diamond that is perfect for a 90th birthday party and is sure to hit a home run! 

My grandpa recently turned 90 years old. For my family, that means it was time to celebrate.

The man of honor loves baseball and beer, so we decided it would be a home run theme for the party.

The beer and ball party invitations were the perfect way to set the tone – and the photo postage stamps made my grandpa the talk of the town. (We told him that when you turned 90, you had earned your own stamp.)

For the day of the party, I wanted to put a little piece of art together for the wall as you entered the party space.

So I created this simple piece that also made a great gift for my grandpa. (It also makes a great alternative to a wreath on a door.)

To make, I started with a 12×12 wooden canvas from the craft store. I stained it and then added a baseball field stencil. (You could also trace this shape and freehand the painting.)

I used two colors of paint for the elements of the field and then removed the stencil to show the stain beneath.

I added the precut numbers (from a craft store) and painted red stitching onto them.

In all, this project took less than 30 minutes of hands-on time, but it was a great addition to the birthday party décor.
