And although today in stores a large selection of all sorts of decorative items, it is always more pleasant to do something yourself. After all, every housewife wants to show off her imagination and originality in front of the guests, surprising them with creative ideas of decor. In addition, due to the availability of materials and the simplicity of work, paper decor is becoming increasingly popular these days.
So what kind of wall paper can you do quickly with your own hands? There is a lot of similar original bright ornaments: various flowers, pompons, fans and garlands. And the main thing for this is that you do not need to have special knowledge and skills, and if you use stencils in your work, you need only a little time, patience and desire.
Manufacturing techniques used in the decoration of elements is extremely simple. It is worth noting that they can be used not only to decorate the premises, but also as a decoration for bottles, for example, with New Year's champagne.
Features placement of jewelry
Regardless of the age of the birthday man, on the eve of his birthday, family members try to decorate the whole apartment at least a little. And in the living room, where the celebration usually takes place, the decorations are fastened wherever possible: on the wall, ceiling, curtains and even on pieces of furniture.
For wall decor, usually use elements of floral and decorative design in a flat or in bulk form.
Flat wall decor, as a rule, consists of many elements. To speed up their cutting is convenient to use stencils made of cardboard. They can be drawn and made independently. The main thing - it is smooth and neat cut details.
One of the options for flat decoration are flowers with petals of hearts folded in half, which can be made from paper with your own hands quickly and easily. If you stick such a flower composition on the wall, it will look quite interesting. For convenience and ease of work on cutting hearts it is better to use stencils.
It is possible to decorate a ceiling as separate flowers, and the whole garlands. Most often for this purpose they use hanging flower-decorative elements. Hanging paper flowers for the decoration of the ceiling helps to create a fascinating atmosphere, especially if they are attached to thin threads that are difficult to see from below. Hanging decor looks light and airy, so guests will feel that flower pompons hover above the room.
The versatility of making floral decorations for birthday parties is that they can be made from any material available:
- white office paper;
- corrugated paper;
- tracing paper;
- brown paper;
- at worst, you can even use toilet paper.
A simple paper fan, which many people usually use as a fan, made of colored paper, can be a wonderful decoration of a room where a birthday celebration is planned.
Such products can be made in different colors. For children's parties, yellow fans are most often made, which resemble the sun. Particularly impressive on the wall are products made of colored paper, if the colors are matched with each other correctly.
For such a fan, thick scrapbooking paper of different colors or with a small pattern is better suited, and it is done as follows:
- an arbitrary size sheet of paper folded in an accordion;
- the resulting strip is bent in half, its inner ends are fastened with scotch tape or with the help of a tamper, after its blooming a semicircle is obtained;
- then, by analogy, the second semicircle is performed, after which both elements are fastened together;
- fan circles can be decorated with bright buttons or hearts, cut out of cardboard, sticking them in the center.
That's all the original fan decoration is ready for further use.
Registration in flowers from corrugated paper
One of the most popular types of floral decorations is the decor of corrugated paper. After all, from this universal material can be made as small flowers for bulk garlands, and a large flower. All decorations made of corrugated paper look great in any interior.
Most often it is used in the manufacture of:
- exotic flowers.
Due to the ease of carnations and dandelions made of corrugated paper, they are ideal for the manufacture of flower garlands. Not by chance, many are interested in how to make such flowers out of corrugated paper. But it is not difficult at all, you just need to take a stack of corrugated leaves, fold it with an accordion, drag a thread in the middle and dissolve the petals on both sides of the waist - the result is a very fluffy ball. If you use flowers made of thick paper for garlands, they will not look as tender and airy as a floral decor made of corrugated paper.
Flowers to decorate the interior of the living room for a birthday party often make quite large. Therefore, in their manufacture it is more convenient to use crepe paper, which is sold in half-meter rolls.
Wonderful pompons do it yourself
Paper pompons are one of the budget options for decorating a birthday party. Miniature toy-like pompons are often used as furniture decor, they can also be used to decorate a holiday table, making it more bright.
Having prepared all the above items you can get to work.
- Cut off a piece of tape so that there are enough long ends to hang the pompon and glue the ball in the middle.
- We take 4 sheets of paper measuring 12x24 cm, stack them up, make an accordion from it and fix in the middle with a wire. The edges of the resulting strip cut in a semicircle.
- Having straightened the folded ends, we get a pretty flower bud, which we attach to a foam ball with a glue gun.
- To cover the surface of the ball will need about forty of these little buds, so the work ahead is rather painstaking, but the result is worth it.
