We just got a bunch of new honeycomb in the Oh Happy Day Party Shop and I saw
I love honeycombs because they store flat and you can use and reuse them. We just got
Materials needed: Wooden dowels (3/16″ and 3/8″ in diameter), hand saw,
Step 1: Plan out your table layout. We planned our layout for a table 7” long, with three sticks in each hurricane. You’ll want the larger sticks higher in the layout so that they don’t block your guests’ faces.
Step 2: Cut your dowels to different lengths according to your plan. Reserve the fatter dowels for the giant honeycombs and the hanging arrangements, and the thinner dowels for the fans.
- Tape a 3/16” dowel to one side of the closed fan with gaffer’s tape.
- Open the fan, then apply a bit of hot glue to keep it in place. Hold in place until the glue has cooled. You can use a coated paper clip to hold it together while the glue sets.
Giant Balls and Diamonds
- With the honeycomb still closed, tape a 3/8″ dowel along the inner edge.
- Peel the backing from the adhesive on your giant honeycomb
- Sandwich the dowel in the center of the honeycomb, and open the fan.
- Cut big, long fringe from your tissue paper using an x-acto knife and ruler.
- With the honeycombs still closed, apply a thin line of hot glue along the inside edge and affix ribbon. Leave a little ribbon hanging on the end. Glue additional honeycombs until you get the length you
- Wrap the fringe around the ribbon on the end. Put a dot of hot glue in the beginning and end of the wrap to hold it in place.
Hanging Ball Bouquets
- With the honeycomb ball still closed, apply a thin line of hot glue along the inside edge and affix ribbon.
- Repeat with other balls until you can make a nice bouquet. Then gather the ribbons and knot onto the end of a 3/8″ stick. To help keep it in place, you can put a dab of hot glue on knot.
