I finally finished my first project for Caden’s 1st birthday! I thought this would be perfect to set up on a table with a framed Happy Birthday sign next to it.
Thanks to Makin Projiks I stumbled across her adorable wreath that she did for her daughters birthday and knew I had to do it too! Since I already had a birthday wreath in the making (hint hint) I decided to do a table decoration instead. It was a little time consuming but I’m so happy on how it turned out!
Here’s what you need:
- Craft glue
- cardboard (I used old diaper boxes)
- tape (packaging or duct)
First your going to make your cut out. Cut your cardboard and put it together with tape. I used a diaper box. It was pretty simple.
Next your going to cut your streamers into squares.
Then your going to take a pencil, (I used a dry erase board marker. Can you believe we don’t have a single pencil in this house?) and your going to wrap a piece of streamer on to your pencil, dip it into the glue and place it on your cardboard cutout.
And Repeat. And Repeat. And Repeat. For a long time.
And there you have it. You can use it as a wreath, table decoration or even a wall decoration. And you can stick with a color scheme like I did or you can do a solid color or even do stripes and patterns. Either way it’s affordable and really cute!
4 Streamers: .89 ea. / 3.56
Total: Under 10 bucks!
