Do-It-Yourself Party Decor

You do not have to spend tons of money on pre-made party decor to make a celebration feel special. You can often make items yourself, and cheaply. I have a few staple items on hand and use them along side a few add-ons to personalize my parties.


1. White square or rectangular serving places in various sizes
2. Mason jars in various sizes
3. Ribbon in various colors
4. Brown paper bags
5. Chalkboard paint

Here is an example on how you can use simple items to create fun, festive, do-it-yourself party decor!

I normally add a splash of color to each party I throw by purchasing $1 disposable table clothes at Dollar Tree, as well as fun colored napkins. A little bit of color goes a long way.

The hanging banner is made from brown paper bags cut into triangles and ribbon. Super easy! It looks really nice, and not to mention cheap to make!

I like to dress up things with ribbon, twine and burlap. The jars and such have a little extra fun and it was so easy.

I picked up the letter “M” on clearance for $1 and painted it so it could  be written on. Super simple, yet very personal. Also making smaller signs to label the food gives it a fun pop. I made my own fun chalkboard plate. I bought the plate at IKEA for $5 and painted it.

Get inspired, get crafty and SAVE MONEY on your next party!
