Let’s talk about how high maintenance I can be for a minute. I might shower an undisclosed number of times each week, but there are certain things I cannot live without. Like, NARS concealer and obsessive party details.
Don’t roll your eyes at me!
My Millennium Falcon cake stands were a NEED for my Star Wars Rebels party. A must have. The success of my party plan depended on Michael helping me with these bad mamajammas. First world problems, for sure!
Millennium Falcon Supplies:
Michael started his half of the project by printing out the Millennium Falcon template. (Note- You will need 2 sheets of paper, taped together.) Next, he found a piece of scrap hardboard and traced the image. Finally, he was able to be manly and use a jigsaw to cut out the beginning of my Star Wars party.
I was a VERY happy girl.
Why hardboard? Because we had leftovers from a quick fix house project. Read… it was free.
Was I a little twitchy because the edges were unfinished and a little frayed? Yes, yes I was. Gotta love a little OCD!
Did it work? It absolutely did.
I started my portion of our Millenium Falcon cake stands by attaching one of the many empty snack containers from my recycling stash to the bottom of the hardboard. I opted to glue the lid to the base because the last upcycled cupcake tower I made takes up too much space in my green bin. With this one, I am able to detach the base for easy storage!
So, whatcha think?
- The price sure was on point! We were only out of pocket the price of the paint because we had the rest of the supplies at home.
- They add an extra level of detail a party guest might not expect before walking in the door.
- They were flipping easy to put together.
Mission completed! Pass GO! and collect $200. Winning at Life. Game over.
