For our son’s first Birthday, we used ‘Animals’ as the theme of the Birthday Party. It was a DIY first Birthday party and most of the items were done by me. Lately, I thought of sharing these DIY tutorials if it is helpful for someone.
Throwing a kids birthday party is really awesome and fun. This was our first time organizing a party and I had a great time arranging it. Instead of buying a party banner, I decided to go for a DIY Birthday Banner. To make the banner to match with animals theme, I used few animal pictures when we hang it on the wall.
How to make animal themed DIY Birthday Banner
Card stock of different colour papers
Ribbon or a beautiful thread
Pair of scissors
Pen as needed
Letters to spell “happy Birthday’ – Printed letters or stickers
Few images of animals
How to do:
Using card stock,cut 13 circles of 7’ diameter.I used a small bowl to draw the circles.
Cut 13 squares of 7’’ length and width.
Match colours and arrange all letters into different colour squares.
Punch 2 holes in top corners of each square.
Arrange the squares in an order to read ‘Happy Birthday’
Thread the ribbon through the squares and you are done!
As our theme for the party is ‘Animals’,I used some animal pictures in between words.
