Since summer has ended and both of my crew members are back at work and school, I’m finally getting around to sharing how I made everything come together for the Circus’ VIP Red Carpet Birthday Party.
One of my favorite projects from the party were these kids microphones.
The little partygoers had a ball singing with them at the party and they doubled as party favors they could take home as well! Bonus – these toy microphones are super easy to make!

- 1″ PVC Pipe cut 6″ long per microphone
- Foam Eggs
- Silver Glitter
- Black Spray Paint
- Clear Gloss Spray Paint Topcoat
- Hot Glue
- Mod Podge
Spray paint all the PVC pipe black.
I found it easiest to attach screws to a scrap piece of wood and stand the pipe on them to spray paint.
While the spray paint is drying, glitter the eggs.
To do this, place a toothpick in the narrow end of each egg. Apply Mod Podge, then immediately cover the egg with glitter.
To dry the eggs, I placed each toothpick through a cardboard box to keep them elevated.
After the pipes are dry, put a good bit of hot glue or another adhesive along one end of the pipe as shown below.
Put some adhesive a little bit inside the pipe as well.
Place an egg, narrow end down, into each microphone pushing firmly.
Let the glue dry.
Once the glue has had enough time to dry, give each microphone a couple of coats of clear gloss top coat spray paint. This will help to seal all the glitter to the egg and keep it from falling off so much.
Let dry and then rock out!
We placed the microphones on our VIP table for the kids to grab as soon as they made their entrance into the party lounge.
Ice buckets were perfect for corralling them all!
