When it comes to parties –be it a birthday bash or a wedding anniversary party –no one really wants to spend a leg and an arm or more, even if you want something more unique and breath-taking to impress your guests. However, I have the right answer for you: DIY decorations!

DIY Wood Banner:

DIY Wood Banner:Materials you’ll need for this DIY craft:

  • Acrylic paint
  • A black pen
  • Bakers twine
  • X-acto knife
  • Blue painters tape
  • Wood banner pieces (you can go for any brand you want)

Instructions to make the DIY Wood Banner:

Step 1:

The first phase includes typing up the letters you want on your banner on a computer or laptop (it’s up to you to choose the font and the color you want it to be). Now, print it.

Step 2:

Once you’ve got it printed, with an x-acto knife, cut out the letters. I recommend you cut out each letter into a small stencil square.

Step 3:

Proceed to tape and paint in different colors. You could then trace the letter with a black pen first since the stencil can be loose and you don’t want the paint to bleed. Now, with the black paint, fill in the letter. Then, let it dry before stringing it onto thread. And, there your “happy birthday” banner is ready!

DIY Birthday Cake Pinata:

DIY Birthday Cake Pinata:Materials you’ll need for this DIY craft:

  • Cardboard
  • A pair of scissors
  • Twine
  • Tape
  • White glue
  • Awl
  • Hot glue
  • Straws
  • Crepe paper

Instructions to make the DIY Birthday Cake Pinata:

Step 1:

The starting phase includes cutting out your cardboard pieces. You’ll need triangles with one curved edge, two rectangles (the same length as your triangles’ long sides), and another rectangle the same width as your curved edge and the same height as your other rectangles. Phew, did you get all that? Make a little opening or flap in the center of one of your triangles so you can easily fill your pinata. We must now glue them all together! Begin by attaching the two rectangles to one triangle’s two longer sides. Tape them to the other triangle.

Step 2:

Then tape on the final rectangle, gradually bending it as you go so that it bends around with the curved edge.

Note: When you are cutting the hole, in case you inadvertently cut the flap all the way off, don’t worry, you can just tape it back on.

Step 3:

Now, it’s time to make some fringe! You can make the “cake” white and the “frosting” pink. Using your white glue, start at the bottom of the long rectangular sides and adhere strips of fringe along the edges of the cake.

Step 4:

You might produce three layers of cake by placing few rows of white beneath a few rows of pink and repeating the process two more times (ending with pink at the top). Cover the entire back in your icing color once you’ve fringed the sides.

Step 5:

Then repeat the same for the bottom and top of your cake slice. A few pointers… Because it’s difficult to achieve adequate fringe coverage in such a little space, you can obviously add a solid piece of crepe paper to the point of your triangle. After that, make sure to attach your fringe on top of it. To keep the pinata openable, try to glue various pieces onto the flap you designed for filling it.

Step 6:

Next, cut some little crepe pieces and use them to cover your cake and icing! You may use glue, double stick tape, or glue dots to secure the sprinkles.

Step 7:

Fill this man with food and snacks before sending him on his journey! Alternatively, hang it up and let it get battered to bits.
