DIY decoration ideas to make your kids’ birthday sparkle and shine!
Decorating your home for a special occasion is a wonderful opportunity to let your creative brain go wild!
We all remember those birthday parties, weddings, and other events when you walk in the room and feel a huge smile across your face…
You feel the love, care, and hard work that’s gone into the decoration and it makes you feel happy. Someone put thought into every little part of the decoration, just to make the occasion special.
It’s a beautiful way to show you care and appreciate that person, or people you’re celebrating.
A unique gift from you, to them…
That’s why, we want to give you some DIY decoration ideas that will make your kids’ birthday sparkle and shine!
1. Instagram Wall
First, let’s talk about photos.
In the age of social media, and Instagram posts, it’s safe to say there will be more than one or two mobile phones at the party. All of them taking snapshots of the children playing, having fun, and capturing moments to look back on for years to come…
So, why not create something spectacular for the photoshoot?
An Instagram Wall has become a HUGE trend in the last few years.
It’s a chance to showcase your personality, and give your guests the perfect backdrop for their next Instagram post to share with all their friends, and family.
It’s a unique way to create a memorable photo album full of smiling little faces!

It’s the Little Things… 10. Specialised Party Envelopes and Invitations
Nowadays, most of what we do is online and we send email invitations in place of traditional letter invitations…
But, why can’t we make letter invitations special again? It’s a rarity to receive an invitation in the post now, so it’s the ideal time to make something personal for your guests!
In these times, it’s more important than ever to show how much you care about someone, and we think a special party invitation is just the way to do it.
All it takes is some art supplies and paper for the invitation and envelope, then pop them in the post box and that’s it!
It really is the little things that matter.
If you get stuck at the envelope stage, no worries, we got you! Check out this article by thecraftyblogstalker.com.
