Birthday Party theme: Foxes

I still have yet to mail out Thank You cards from the party, but here’s my blog on it LOL

Our littlest one has been obsessed with foxes since Zootopia came out last year.

She even has a Nick Wilde sweater. She wore it to Animal Kingdom and scared Mickey Mouse pretending to be a fox.

So, a Fox party was definitely in the cards for her. Finding fox party decor, on the other hand, not so easy.

She started preschool at the beginning of the month, so every Wednesday and Thursday leading up to her party were used for shopping, ordering, crafting, etc.

I started by getting these at Walmart:

They ended up becoming a banner for the party, hot glued to twine.

Then, I headed to good ol’ Joann’s. I got felt for felt masks, fake flowers for headbands, orange and black card stock. You know, my supplies!

DIY: Stand-Up Craft Table

I’ve been asking for a craft table for I don’t know how long. 

For my birthday, my husband came home with wood. LOL

And built me a craft table for my new Cricut.

For the legs of the table, he used 2X2s. For the top piece, he went to a local lumber yard, Lakeland Lumber, and got a 22×36 piece of white wood.

We (meaning he) attached the legs of the table with these nifty little things:

You screw these plates to the bottom of the table. Then, you pre-drill holes in the 2X2s and screwed in the threads. After that, you just screw the legs into the plates. Easy peasy!

At first, I thought I wanted my table to be 40″ from the floor. Once we put it in the room, I changed my mind (it’s a woman’s right!) and decided I wanted it to be 36″ so we took it back to the garage and out 4″ off the legs with a mitre saw.

My craft room is teal and white, so we bought spray paint and are going to paint the top teal and the legs white.
