I am helping one of my best friends plan a 13th birthday party for her daughter and I wanted to share some of the things I started making. She wanted an animal print themed party, with pink accents and her wish was our command! Add these ideas, feather boas, pearls, gems, and ribbon and viola! You have a very girly and wild animal print theme party! Here are some animal print party ideas along with some helpful DIY party tips:
Glittered Wild Animals
I saw this idea on Pinterest and actually doing it was much more tasking than I thought. My friend purchased plastic toy animals and some glitter, and I had a paint brush and some Mod Podge (hello? ALWAYS stocked in my craft closet). With some paper plates protecting your counter, use a paint brush to apply the glue to your plastic animals, apply the glitter. Let them dry completely, you will have some uneven spots unless you are Martha Stewart. Once they are dry, you can handle them again to do touch ups.
Craft Punch Banner
I made these simply by using a 3” circle craft punch, and 3.5” craft punch, scrap book paper, and my computer. I think I will add hot pink ribbon to string them. I made some similar ones for a golf theme baby shower I did.
Easy Birthday Signs
These white frames are perfect for so many different occasions. They were definitely a good investment because I use them over and over again. I most recently used them for a pink and purple baptism and an owl themed first birthday party.
Easy Food Labels
Food labels are an easy, inexpensive, and fun way to add a theme into your party décor. All you need is some corresponding scrapbook paper, double sided tape, and a paper cutter!
Accordion Flower Decoration
This craft is my go-to for parties. I always make accordion flowers because they are a) pretty, and b) easy. For these, I used a circle craft punch and used my computer to print out the honoree’s name.
