Planning a retirement party???
Planning a Retirement Party doesn’t have to cost alot. To start here are some great and easy DIY decoration ideas.
Plan an amazing party with really cheap, easy DIY décor.
The first project is these paper cone trees.
You’ll need some poster board and you’ll just take a string, draw a curve on it with a pen and then cut out the cones or cut out the curved shapes, then you roll them up and secure them in place with some packing tape.
You don’t need any fancy tape.
Now, to make the spray paint stick to the packing tape you need to first hit it with some white primer.
Let that dry.
Then, spray paint the cones the different colors that you want.
Add a little bit more interest, by adding some spray adhesive and sprinkling on glitter to give it some shine.
Let those dry and they’re ready to decorate the table.
Next, we’re going to make a cheap party backdrop using wrapping paper.
This is one is super fun, because you can use a wrapping paper that you already have.
Now, depending on how big you want your pinwheels to be you’re going to cut the paper half of that diameter, so if I wanted these to be16 inches these are eight inches wide and then I’m going to cut these strips eight times longer than that, so they need to be 64 inches, so it’s eight inches wide it needs to be 64inches long.
I needed to cut three strips of this particular wrapping paper, some wrapping paper’s taller, some is shorter, so you’re just going to needto measure, to make sure it’s eight times as long as it is wide.
Pleat the pieces of wrapping paper every inch,or inch and a half or so, and then connect the sections with tape.
Now, if you’re making a smaller one, like maybe say a four inch, half of the diameter is four inches, so it’s going to be an eightinch pinwheel you are not going to need to join strips together.
If you do have multiple strips join them together with packing tape.
Make sure you hit that crease and this little white thing here that I’m using is called a bone folder it’s just to give things a nicesharp crease.
Once you’ve joined the pieces together, then join the ends together to make a tube, so it’s like one big long tube piece.
Then, you’re going to lay it flat on the table,and bam it is a rosette.
Just make sure that all the folds are right.
Check your creases.
Crease anything that needs extra creases and then on the back tape a little piece of twin, and you can hang that on the wall.
The final project is starburst, these gold little star things.
You are going to cut bamboo skewers.
I cut these to six inches in length, which is about half of what they are.
I’m just using a wire cutter.
You can use scissors if you want.
Then, you’re going to poke all of those into some foam balls, and just do it kind of random until it looks full enough to you.
Once those are all done you’re going to hit it with some spray paint, and let that dry, and then you can hang those from the ceiling with some fishing line and pushpins.
I hope you enjoyed this super fun easy party décor.
This cost me zero dollars to make, because I just used stuff that I already had in my home.
