Upcycled costumes are important to Kid Frolic Austin. It’s not always easy to find time to make significant progress in the upcycling department. It’s time to refocus on what’s important! In a few days, school will be back in session. That means Mom, me, can get back to a steady work pace. I’m very excited and looking forward to having some time to focus on the upcycle/reuse portion of Kid Frolic Austin. Visit the Calendar here on the website for Open Hours, the unique upcycled items are only available in the studio.
By the way, Kid Frolic takes costume donations: 1107 S. 8th Street, 78704. Near ish to Lamar Alamo Drafthouse.
I have been asked to do a Troll Party. How Fun!! After our initial meeting and an email or two, we have the list pretty well set. Favors are always the big fun item: felt hug time wristbands and troll hair headbands are the choice for handmade favor items. So Cute!! We found these on Pintrest. Links to websites listed below for instructions if you find yourself unable to resist making these.
Pictured are supplies for the wristbands and table runners. The white pieces are patterns I made from regular white paper. It was perfect timing for Troll Hug Time wristlet supplies. I found these purple and yellow sew-on velcro strips and glitter buttons on clearance! Normally $3 each, I got velcro and buttons for .50 each. That’s a saving of $12.50…love finding good deals! Of course that savings is passed on the my customers 😉 Even though the wristband instructions call for stick-on velcro, I was already planning on sew-on. I’m just like that. I like to make things as sturdy as possible if it makes sense.
I’m very excited to be able to supply reusable items such as cloth table covers, cloth Troll table runners, small stainless steel forks and spoons, and paper flowers for wall decorations. For added sparkle and shine there will be confetti tulle overlays on the food and gift tables. We’ll be using a shiny stainless steel cake stand along with a large silver wrapped cake board to display cookies and acrylic crystal cut cake and knife server set. All these items are rentable here at Kid Frolic Austin.
✤I’ll post updated photos during the week as all these materials get transformed into actual party goods.
