DIY Birthday Decor

The next time you find yourself planning a child’s birthday party, try one of these DIY decor ideas before you hit the store for those old crepe streamers.

Party Napkins

Instead of buying printed party napkins, try this DIY party idea:

  • Purchase solid colored party napkins to match your party decor.
  • Choose a shape to cut out that matches your party theme
  • Make a template of your shape using card stock.
  • Trace template onto napkin, then cut around design (cut through 3-4 napkins at once to save time).

Birthday Banner

Make your own birthday banner to match any birthday theme and/or color. You can really get creative with this idea since the fonts, letters, and colors are completely up to you.

  • Choose a piece of colored ribbon to hang your banner on (or any type of string or twine will work).
  • Print individual letters out from your computer (one letter per sheet) increasing font size to fill up page.
  • Repeat above until your completed message is printed
  • Attach pages to ribbon by folding over top and securing with tape. Then simply hang!

Tip: Alternate between different fonts and colors when printing out your message for a whimsical effect like shown above.

    How could you then select the most effective one amid the nice weight reduction
    plans which can be relocating all around as of late.
    The major cause people fail with weight reduction programs is they do
    not consider the program seriously. ll discuss nowadays what all
    is required to appear out from your issues we suffer due
    to weight-loss troubles.
