DIY: Birthday Ideas

5 Feb


By Kathleen Heady

For my twins Birthday Party I had twice the fun decorating and wanted to share some do-it-yourself Birthday Ideas. For their party I decided I did not want to spend that much and saved instead by making the decorations and party favors myself. Here are three birthday decorations and ideas that are easy and fun to do and oh so colorful.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–DIY: Balloon Chandelier:Β I bought these helium balloons at a local dollar store, 25 balloons for $1 dollar a pack. I used ribbon tie and tape to hang the balloons from the ceiling and scissors to twirl the ends of the ribbon for twirly curls.


DIY: Icecream Bar:Β The kids wanted an ice cream bar so I made them one and set-out a variety of toppings i.e. gummie bears, chocolate chips, shredded coconut, hershey syrup, honey, sprinkles and granola bars crunched up. Β All the kids liked the ice cream bar and everyone had seconds πŸ™‚


My daughters icecream in a “monkey pod” that she decorated.


DIY: Mason Jar Party Favors

For the mason jars. I decorated them with stickers, mustaches, critters, beads, and headbands. I made boy/girl ones. I used a hot glue gun for the outside decorations and filled the jars with candy and mini toys and erasers. It was fun and the kids put on the mustaches with the funny glasses and masquerade mask and had a great time. Β It was simple yet very cute and the kids liked the jars and the wearable mustaches.

    These are all so cool, I wish my birthday was sooner! An ice cream bar sounds so yummy. I’d probably have one little scoop of ice cream and a whole mountain of tasty toppings.

    You carried out all these ideas very well. I especially like the mason jar party favors and the balloon chandelier. It looks like the kids really had a good time.
