5 Inexpensive DIY Party Decor Ideas: Use wrapping paper, washi tape, scrapbook paper, and vintage bottles to create your own party decor.
This party decor has so much going for it. It’s very inexpensive, and easy to DIY yourself. The other great thing about making your own is that you can customize it to any colour scheme or theme.
1. Wrapping Paper Table Runner
Our first great idea, and the foundation for this whole tablescape is this fun wrapping paper table runner. Pick out a beautiful pattern and use it as an inexpensive, and colourful runner. It’s great if you don’t have linens that fit your theme or colour scheme, and it also makes clean up really easy.
2. Washi Tape Straws
Personalize your stripped paper straws with washi tape. Choose a colour and pattern that works for your colour scheme and wrap it around a pretty paper straw. Trim the edge with a decorative V, and then use a black sharpie to add a personal message perfect for your occasion.
3. Washi Tape Cake Bunting
This Washi Tape Cake Bunting is so simple and adds so much fun to the cake, it also helps tie everything together by repeating the washi tape, and the colour scheme.
To make it just wrap a piece of tape around a piece of ribbon tied to two paper straws. Then, cut the end of the tape into a V shape. You can use any colours or patterns of tape to match with your party colours.
4. Mini Paper Party Hats for Plastic Animals
Get out your glue gun for this fun and easy DIY.
Make mini size party hats out of some simple scrapbook paper. I recommend paper instead of card stock for this craft, since it’s so tiny and the paper is more flexible and easier to make into a cone than card stock would be.
Use your glue gun to secure the cone hats and add a little mini pom pom to the top. To attach the party hats to the plastic animals, I used a little drop of hot glue, that should be easy to pull off afterwards. We used cute forest animals, but farm animals or jungle/safari animals would be fun too.
5. Mini Vintage Glass Bottle Vases
Make mini vases out of inexpensive vintage glass bottles. These bottles were picked up for no more than $1-$2 each at an antique fair. Look for them at antique stores as well. Then use inexpensive grocery store flowers in them for a beautiful centrepiece.
This party decor was so easy to put together, and you can customize it all for any colour scheme you like.
With inexpensive DIY party decor, life really is a party!
