This was our very FIRST attempt at handcrafting party supplies for a themed party! We had immense fun creating Nautical themed banners, menu labels, favor bags, paper flowers and thank you cards.
- Banners: I found the free nautical themed banner printables on Pinterest, printed them, punched two holes at top corners of each piece, and ran the ribbon through them. Repeated this process for all the banners in blue, white and red colors.
- Handmade Paper flowers: Using colored paper, we created numerous paper flowers to grace each mason jar. Mason jars were purchased from Michaels.
- Handmade favor bags: Free nautical themed “Thank you so much” printables were procured from Pinterest. I printed these on letter sized papers. Using my 2″ circle punch, I cut them into perfect circles and stuck them onto plain white paper bags. Later, I strung bows using blue ribbon.
- Handmade Backdrop – We purchased table cloths of three colors: blue, red and white from dollar store. Having stuck each table cloth on the wall, one atop another, we cut vertical slits of equal width; and braided them all together.
Hope you enjoyed learning these DIY techniques! 🙂
