How to Make Party Decor

Build a balloon backdrop

Tie colored balloons to curtain rails in groups of 3 or more per color. Hang corresponding ribbons from a curtain rail for a great backdrop.

Make rainbow water

Place freshly cut flowers in clear vases of water. Add a few drops of different food coloring to each vase and place in naturally lit areas.

Glitter your balloons

Inflate some balloons and spread mod podge on the top half of the balloon. Sprinkle the balloons with glitter and hang with a string.

Decorate your candles

Spread a thin, even layer of mod podge on your candle and cover in glitter. Pieces of tissue paper can also be used to create designs.

Decorate your vases

Dip clear glass vases or jars into acrylic paint. Dipping at irregular angles and levels as well as layering colors adds a unique effect.
