DIY Decoration Ideas for Any Themed Party

by Dinah Wulf

One of my best friends needed help with her daughter’s second birthday.  When asked what type of party she wanted, her little munchkin insisted on an Elmo AND Little Einsteins party.  Why not?  When my friend started her search for party decorations she found it costly to buy party decorations for both themes.  So, with my help, we combined the two EXTREMELY inexpensively with a little brainstorming.  Here are some DIY Decoration Ideas for Any Themed Party.

I made her invitation using a free program on iPiccy.com.  Here is how they came out.  I simply used Google Images to find pictures of the Little Einsteins and Elmo. I printed them on my photo printer and my friend spent $5 for 20 envelopes at the craft store.

Also using iPiccy and Google Images, we made these collages mixing both characters as well. I printed them, mounted them on colorful paper to hang or place anywhere she sees fit.

Accordion flowers are also very easy and inexpensive to make.  Here is one of the many we made.  I also made a flag banner, however neglected to take a picture (ooops).

In her original search for decorations, she almost purchased cupcake toppers for $15!  That is just outrageous to me.  I made these for her using a circle craft punch and toothpicks.

Finally, to help add some color to the food table, I made these food labels using the characters faces and names.

Super easy!  I just wanted to show that you can make simple and inexpensive party decorations to fit any theme without breaking your budget!

In case you missed them, here are some more budget friendly DIY party posts!
