While you may be busy planning your Thanksgiving, I am busy planning a zoo themed birthday party for my little girl. There will be more on that in the weeks to come, but I'd like to share with you a simple party decorating idea that I used last year and will use again and again. Painting a mirror for a party is an inexpensive party decoration and is much easier to do than you think:)
A lot of you may be like me and use mirrors as decorative pieces in your home. Dress up your existing mirror by painting a message on the mirror using acrylic craft paint. Here, I used painter's tape to create a number one, filled it in with paint, and removed the tape. Coupled with text and other decorations, it created a cute birthday message our guests saw as they walked in the door. When the party was over, the mirror wiped clean with glass cleaner.
*Yes, that knitted cupcake in the foreground was made by me for this special occasion:)
No need for expensive banners. Acrylic craft paint can be found at any craft store for $1 or less! This would be a fun idea to use to decorate for the holidays as well. Consider using your mirror to help convey your message or theme.
Easier Than I Thought!
