DIY Party Decorations
We had a little get together over the winter break so I needed to get my DIY cap on! I wanted to make a few cute decorations to jazz up the house.
I hit the dollar star to buy some inexpensive materials.
Here is what made the list:
A cute doily banner. These are absolutely adorable- in fact ours is still hanging up and I am not sure I want to take it down! This cost me a buck... that IS right $1. I already had some yarn and a glue stick at home. All I needed was a packet of doily's. You can even purchase a fabric version of this off etsy. It would be a lot more durable and you could pretty much hang it anywhere.

I first fell in love with the paper pom pom in my 9th grade Spanish class. We had to make these for Cinco de Mayo. I love making different versions of these. You can get really creative with colors and sizes, the possibilities are endless!

Paper lanterns! These are my absolute favorite, I would use them everywhere if I could. These were a bit on the expensive side. I opted to use a holiday 50% off Michael's coupon to justify my purchase ;) We hung from our stairwell banisters hanging down in the foyer. Here are the ones I used Martha Steward PomPoms
