As my son’s first birthday approaches, I had to figure out a first birthday theme. It’s not that easy for a boy. There are more girl ideas then boy ideas. So I thought about my son and he’s at a stage where he wants to get into everything and wants to know everything. I call him my little monster. So I searched Pinterest for ideas. They had a few ideas but with monsters like for Halloween. I then came across a Cookie Monster cake smash photo and knew that was what I wanted to do.
The searching then began. Once again there was a limited amount of ideas. I came across a photograph of the letter D with cookies on it. I knew that was one of the things that I wanted to make. So I started planning. I picked up the letter m for my son’s name and some Cookie Crisp. I used a hot glue gun and glued the Cookie Crisp onto the letter. I will be using the letter for the day of his party on display and it was used as a photo prop for his first birthday photo shoot ( first birthday photo shoot blog coming soon). It was fun creating this letter for him. Below you will find the materials and steps to creating a Cookie letter.
– wooden letter
– a box of Cookie Crisp
– glue gun
– glue sticks
– paper (in case glue spills on the floor)
- Lay down paper on the floor. Heat up the glue gun.
- Pick some Cookie crisps.
- Start glueing.
- Cover the wooden letter with Cookie Crisps and you’re done.
- Use for decorations and/or photo props.
