When we made this marbleized ribbon last week, we also tried the technique on a piece of paper and loved the result. So we picked up a few new colors of nail polish, marbled some pieces of cardstock, and turned them into party hats! Get the easy instructions below!
Materials: Water, large baking pan, at least 4 colors of new nail polish (ours is from the dollar store,) white cardstock, skewers, scissors, acetone nail polish remover (for clean up), party hat template, x-acto knife. Optional: gloves (so you don’t get nail polish all over your hands), crepe paper & ribbon (for decorating)
Step 1: First, make sure you’re working in a well-ventilated space. Then marbleize the paper and let it dry. If you’ve never marbleized with nail polish, you can use this tutorial we did a few weeks ago – just replace the ribbon with a sheet of white cardstock. Allow the paper to dry overnight.
Step 3: Decorate with fringe and ribbon.
Step 4: Enjoy!
