I’m helping out a friend to plan a cowgirl theme birthday party for two very girly pink obsessed girls. We wanted to use sheriff badges as name tags for the party, but regular silver and gold badges just won’t do for these fabulous cowgirls.
Instead, we're placing a gold star badge on top of a doily and attaching some pearls to it. The result? You have a sheriff badge that's fit for a princess, ahem, cowgirl.
You could also turn these shabby chic sheriff badges into a birthday garland. Make bigger accordions, use larger doilies and spell out H-A-P-P-Y-B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y onto larger stars. Attach together with ribbon or jute and hang at your cowgirl shindig. We have a similar tutorial for just such a banner - just make sure you swap the red and burlap with these materials!
Aqua & Pink Cardstock
Step 1: For each badge, cut 2 – 2 x 12 inch strips of pink or aqua paper. Fold like an accordion and attach ends together with hot glue.
Push accordion together, to form a circle and add a glob of hot glue in the center. Hold together until glue dries and circle stays in place.
Step 2: Glue accordion circle on top of a miniature doily. Glue a pin backing onto the back of the doily.
Step 3: Cut gold cardstock into stars and glue faux pearls onto the points. Glue star onto the accordion circle.
Step 4: Write guest names on the stars using a white marker.
