Planning parties of any kind can be very difficult and tiresome especially when working with a tight budget, but a smart DIY-er would know how to stretch that budget and still pull off a fun and festive party with a little help from friends and family.
With the Fourth of July celebrations just around the corner, have you gotten ready with your party plans? Let us give you some DIY suggestions that’ll help you maximize your resources.
Here’s a basic truth: Colored craft paper or tissue and a pair of scissors are your best friends! Cut up some red, white and blue craft paper and create pinwheels of different sizes that you could use to decorate your walls, windows and tables. Smaller pinwheels could be used as pretty cake/cupcake toppers too.
If pinwheels are too complicated for you, try cutting up stars and flaglets and breathe life into them by putting some glitter on them. String them together with a piece of twine or ribbon, and you already have a sparkly garland to adorn your table or garden plants. Meanwhile, use the tissue to make pretty pompoms and hang them around your house or porch along with white running lights (perhaps you kept the ones from last Christmas?) and you’ve got yourself an eye-catching set of decors.
