Whether you are decorating for a Sunday brunch or your friend’s birthday surprise party, here are decorative paper craft ideas you can create:

Paper Roses

Paper roses add color to any party table or any place at home. To do this, create a template where you can trace the double-sided crepe paper. Then, cut five teardrop-shaped petals and 15 heart-shaped petals. Cut the center of the heart-shaped petals and wrap the top edges around a pencil to provide a nice curl shape to your petals. Join all the petals together using a glue to form a rose. For the stem, take three floral wires then wrap together with floral tape. Place the cut out petals around the stems and secure it with floral tape.

Bottle Wraps

Isn’t it wonderful to decorate wine bottles before bringing to a party or giving to the host(ess)? With just a colorful crepe or stylish tissue paper, you can have a decorative wine decor or bottle wraps.  Simply lay the bottle in a several sheets of crepe or tissue paper then fold its edges so it looks neat. Then, extend 2 inches at the bottom and an inch beyond the top. Roll the bottle and secure the seam with a double-sided tape. To decorate the top, fold it or tie it with a twine or waxed thread.

Party Hats

Instead of buying party hats, you can make your own for a party. You just need cardboard to form a hat. Cut it out and overlap both ends by ½ inch. Adjoin both ends using scotch tape or glue. To style your hats, stick on a crepe or tissue paper, stickers and buttons to give a lift. You can shape up the crepe or tissue paper accordingly like circles, stars, curls or anything you like.

Colorful Pom-poms

Playful pom poms add color and festive appeal to any party. Cut strips of from layers of crepe or tissue papers and wrap them around the dowel. Voila! You now have a colorful pom-pom. You can design it with different colors or add more layers to have a bigger pompom.

So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this matter here on your blog.
