The Babesta Window – Behind the Scenes!

We had a great time crafting for the window this week. We made some pretty nifty hanging geometric "lanterns" out of neon colored plastic straws and ribbons. They give a little dimention to our window and give our little Uglydoll models a super cool environment.  We were inspired on Pinterest (go figure!)

We think that these would also make for a great, simple party decoration! Hang them over the birthday table!

First gather your materials! You'll need ample amounts of neon straws, curling ribbon, scissors and fishing wire to hang. 

1 the ingredients

Cut the straws in half and then take 3 halves. Feed the curling ribbon through the staraws.

3 run ribbon through straw

Tie the string with the three straw halves to form a triangle and tie it off.

Now take 3 of your triangles and lay them flat. Tie them into one big triangle.

7 making triangles

With your one remaining triangle, tie it to the top of your large triangle so it should look like this. 




Next bend the 4th traingle at the top down and tie it to the bottom triangle on the left bottom side.  At this point it should look like this.

Now all that is left is to tie off those two triangles at the bottom with string and you should end up with a 3D diamond.

and Voila!
