Pirate Birthday Party Hats | DIY

Yesterday was my little niece Olivia's 2nd Birthday. My Sister in Law asked if I would make Olivia's Party Hat again for this year's Party. Of course, I said yes! Click here to see last year's party hat.

This year Olivia will be celebrating her birthday along with our little cousin Marko who will also be turning 2. They will be having a Pirate themed party this weekend. It should be a lot of fun! 

My inspiration for the hats came from these cute invitations that were made by the Birthday Girl's God Mother.


Here is what I came up with for the little guests of Honor! Sweet and simple. 
They arrrrrrrrrrrrrr sure going to look cute... haha, that's as good as my pirate accent gets?!


The file for the Party Hat comes from SVG Cuts Happy Birthday to You SVG Kit. Super easy and quick to make. Papers were done with the Print n Cut feature of the Silhouette. I also wanted to incorporate the little pirate ship from the invite. To do that, I traced the image and then shrunk it down enough to create the little button embellishments with my Epiphany Craft Shape Studio Tool (Round 25) I love how the buttons tie it all together. 


 I'm not a huge skull fan, but isn't this one so cute?!


I hope you like my Pirate Party hats and saw how easy it was to make your own to tie into any party theme! 

Happy Birthday Olivia and Marko!!! Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Crafting  :)

Ninjago Birthday Cake

Good Morning everyone! I have pre-scheduled this post because I'm sure I'm going to need to recover from the night's festivities!

Today I am sharing with you the cake I made for my son's 9th Ninjago themed Birthday Party!
What do you think? I love how he turned out!!! Actually, wasn't very hard to make either.

Ninjago Birthday Cake

Here's a quick pictorial on how I made "KAI's" head.

Ninjago Birthday Cake

  1. I baked, sliced and filled with icing, the centers of two 5 inch cakes. Separating the layers with a cake board.
  2. Next, I dirty iced the entire head.
  3. Rolled out my fondant pieces. For the eyebrow, I drew and cut out a shape on a piece paper first and laid it on the fondant then cut it out with the tip of a sharp knife.
  4. I placed my pieces on top of the rolled fondant I used as the face. I "glued" the pieces with a little water using a small paintbrush.
  5. Then I placed the face on the head. At this point, I placed the head on the bottom layer of the cake that I had already covered with black fondant.
  6. Finally, I wrapped the rest of the head with Kai's Ninja mask.

The top part of the cake is chocolate flavored and the bottom 10 inch layer is made out of a yellow cake. The entire cake is covered with a vanilla buttercream icing and finished with fondant.


Hope you have enjoyed this Ninjago Birthday Party Series of posts, I hopefully will have some pictures of the party to share with you all soon!

Up next...


Have a great Sunday and thanks for coming by,
