5 DIY Party Decorations

Blog thumbnail - DIY party 6
I had a wonderful opportunity to throw a birthday party on practically zero budget! Yes, I said opportunity, not challenge.  I love opportunities like this, push creativity and have a good excuse to browse Pinterest for hours.

Here are 5 wonderful DIY ideas chosen for this party. These particular decorations complement each other very well in more ways than one. First of all, there are two shades of purple, which is not too monotonous yet works together very well.  The economies of scale is another reason for making all of these together, as you make all decoration from the same materials. So, without further ado:

1. Cupcake stand

This particular piece cost me nothing. A kitchen roll (free!) and two circles cut out from cardboard (free!) fastened together with some masking tape and painted over with white paint. I used acrilyc, cause I had acrylic, but gouache would work just as well. I had some tule left over, so I glue-gunned that, but alternatively, doilies or paper or tape could have been used as a trim.

The idea came from this photo on pinterest, however the link is no longer available.

2. Bunting

Girly purple party8Ok, no need for tutorial here, it’s that easy, however I will insert a printout of how to fit 4 flags on one page. Basically, to figure this out, divide the longest side by 5, mark out those lengths on top and bottom edges and join diagonally.

I used white and purple A4 sheets of cardboard paper.

3. Pinata

For this project you will need crepe paper (or tissue paper), cardboard box, scissors and tape.

4. Paper Stars

Girly purple party5The center piece of our table was unfortunately a grey umbrella. To hide it, I wrapped it in pink tulle and scattered some pretty white and purple stars. To make these you just need to cut out hexagons from paper and fold away. That easy! Alternatively to hexagons, you can cut out star’s of David and fold them the same way. I have designed a print-out for you so you don’t have to:

And last but not least,

5. Giant paper flowers

Four packets of crepe paper, some string and white and purple cardboard cost me  less that 5 euro! Hope this will help you planning your party and not worry about the budget!
