Last week I shared Martha Stewart’s Blue Ombre Party Collection and today I wanted to talk how to take that same collection and turn it into a Little Star Baby Shower with my Martha Stewart Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine and Martha Stewart Multi-Surface paints.
The first thing I did to create the DIY Little Star Baby Shower was purchase four different blank art canvases (one 18X24, two 12X16 and one 12X12) from Michaels. I painted each canvas with Martha Stewart Multi-Surface paint just a little different and used them as backdrops.
I love the multi-surface paint! It works SO, SO well on art canvas, wood, glass, ceramic, metal, terra cotta, paper, and fabric. Plus it comes in over 80 colors and finishes.
I decided to paint the 18X24 inch canvas with large blue and grey stripes. The second 12X16 canvas was painted solid and I used my Martha Stewart Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine to cut a few 3-D Glitter Stars.
I know I’ve said it a MILLION times, but I’m so, so obsessed with my Martha Machine. It is an Explore Air 2 Machine that cuts twice as fast as the Explore Air.
When you purchase the Martha Machine (sold exclusively at Michaels), it comes with a bundles of goodies: 25 exclusive Martha Stewart projects and a color-coordinated Basic Tool Set with a weeder, spatula, scraper, tweezers, and scissors. I glued the stars in the corner. For the second 12X16 canvas, I cut out a vinyl star using my Martha Machine and used Martha Stewart Dauber Brushes to paint polka dots around the star. Once the paint dried, I removed the vinyl star. It’s a similar technique to what I used in THIS Facebook Live.
I used blue painters tape to paint diagonal stripes on the last, 12X12 inch canvas.
Once my canvases were dry, I placed them as backdrops behind my dessert table.
In front of the canvases, I set a two-tiered naked cake topped with fresh blue hydrangeas on a milk glass cake stand. I used pieces of the Martha Stewart Blue Ombre Collection to set the remainder of the table. I am OBSESSED with these Martha Stewart Party Collections. There are ten in total and they are sold exclusively at Michaels. So far I’ve styled the Blue & Coral Indigo Party, Magical Unicorn Party and the Blue Ombre parties and can’t wait to get my hands on all the other collections. After I styled the party products, I added glitter stars to the straws and tassels to the party bags. It’s those little details that really help the party pop!
