DIY: Nautical Party Table Projects {Part 2}



Yesterday, I shared a tutorial on making a cake plate out of a pie tin. Today I thought it might be fun to show you more DIY elements from the Nautical 1st Birthday theme I styled for Bird's Party Magazine.  I love a good DIY project, so I tackled making the gold cake plates, cake, high chair captain's wheel, peg dolls, a gold number one, and some monkey fist nautical knots.

My attempt at ruffled frosting, not completely terrible for a first try


Don't ask how many hours of online knot tying tutorials
it took me to learn the monkey fist nautical rope knots, way too many

  1. What a great nautical party! You added such great detail. I think your ruffles turned out pretty darn good! Thanks for sharing!

  2. That peg doll is quite a charmer for a pirate!
