I wanted to share with you all a recent DIY project that I completed. I'm in the process of finalizing a new line to be added to my shop (www.ColorHug.com) and am also in the midst of a site redesign. The site redesign will come with new product images, and I'm all about styling the photos. I wanted to do this without spending too much money on props, so I decided to check out the Dollar Tree and see what they had. One prop that I knew I wanted in the photos were party horns. I found a pack and decided to make my own horn from pretty papers since the generic designs weren't anything to write home about.
Here is what you need:
First, I popped the horn out of the mouthpiece then pulled it apart at the seam.
This created my template. I then placed the flattened horn onto the paper that I chose and cut around it.
I then rolled the paper encouraging it to form its intended shape.
Next, I slid one end of the paper into the mouthpiece and shaped it into a horn. I placed a paper clip on the end to keep the shape.
Then I glued the paper at the seam.
And there you have it...a cute party horn!
I added a few fun elements to a couple of the horns. The possibilities are endless. You can easily customize these to fit the theme of any occasion at a great price (a pack of five was one buck!).
