Do-It-Yourself Party Decorations

Jul 04, 2015

Summer is the time for parties! Well, any season is the time for parties really, but summer brings the party outside and all that sunshine is something to celebrate. Whether it's a birthday, the Fourth-of-July, Canada Day or just a pool party, summer parties are so fun. And decorations can make them that much more fun. Here are a few types to decorate your party just the way you like.

Balloons

Any party worth calling a party has a healthy dose of balloons, because there's nothing that says have fun and relax like a balloon. Ok, that may be pushing it, but balloons do look really great just floating around the party space or pinned to the wall, even strung with needle and thread.

Wall Balloons:

What You'll Need: Balloons and tape.

To have the pinned to the wall look it's best to get balloon colors that work best with the party theme colors. Make sure you blow them up to a variety of sizes to give them all something a little different and using either masking tape or scotch tape, tape them to the wall. Think about doing one accent wall or maybe the wall above the food table. A little goes along way with this design.

Threaded Balloons:

What You'll Need: Balloons, needle and string.

A garland of balloons looks really great, but sometimes it's hard to put together when you're using tape and string. This is the simplest and surest way to achieve a balloon garland. Blow up your balloons and tie them off. Take your needle and string and through the loose nozzle of the tied-off section of balloon, not the inflated balloon itself, thread the string. Space the balloons as you see fit and hang your garland!

Lights

Twinkle lights or Christmas tree lights always look so wonderful at night time parties. The way they can light up a path or a tree makes everything look so inviting. This project gives twinkle lights an extra special touch that will make your party that much more unique.

Origami Lights:

What You'll Need: Paper, twinkle lights.

Using your origami skills fold a series of small origami boxes. Use different colors of paper or just keep them all one, doesn't matter, both ways will look wonderful. Now all you need to do is wedge the origami box onto each light. There are a series of ways to do this, so try a few out, but there are so many slits and openings in an origami box you won't have any problems. Hang the lights and marvel!

Garlands

Having garlands and streamers at a party make it so easy to celebrate. They're just so fun and add so much color and cheer to any space. Think about making a series of flag garlands if you'd like to have a message written on them. Or try this simple method of making fabric garlands.

Fabric Garlands:

What You'll Need: string, fabric cut in 3/4" x 12" strips

Take your strips of fabric, and this can be recycled fabric from old clothes or even ribbon you've found tucked away, and double knot it to the string. Space them as you see fit, you can slide them around to get the perfect spacing and, yep, that's it. It looks best if you layer a few strands together to make it full, but really it's up to you.

No matter the decorations, parties are a whole lot of fun, but sometimes an extra decoration here or there doesn't hurt. Plus, making the decorations can be a lot of fun just on it's own. Happy crafting and even happier partying!

Actually I don't know about all that, but it still seems wrong to just assume that about all girls, even if there are many where you live and in other places that you have deemed as being such

Well, it all depends on religion. Mine is Christianity. So yes, I believe in God. God actually created these animals, but not to become as a test subject. Believe it or not, your call, but animals actually do have feelings. Such as Monkeys, Dogs, Cats etc. If you own a dog or cat, how would you feel if your pet was taken away to become a test subject? Knowing the possibilities that they could die. Not too happy, wouldn't you say?
