Every year, I love creating a fun photo opportunity for visitors at the entrance of The Farm Chicks Fair. This year, I crafted a big bunch of cotton candy balloons, DIY’d to look like they were balloons made out of cotton candy.
For me, cotton candy is fun. And happy. And wouldn’t this be fun to make for a photo op (or decoration) at your next party?
- Hot glue paper cones to bags of cotton candy.
- Affix long strings to the cones.
- Hot glue bags together to create a huge bunch of “balloons”.
- Hang bunch from ceiling with several pieces of clear heavy duty fishing line.
- Once hung, tie all the loose strings (hanging from the bottom of the cones) together to create a knot, just as a balloon peddler would.
Tip: I repackaged my bags of cotton candy using clear bags, rather than the clown themed bags they came in. (It just fit better with what I had in my mind).
Special thanks to the wonderful Samantha Cabrera for these images from the show.
Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
