For this DIY Series, we’ll teach you how to use products from our site to add the perfect, personalized touch to a birthday.
First, using postcards to make birthday bunting.
Bunting’s all the rage and you don’t need a lot of resources to pull it off in time for a birthday bash. “Bunting,” for those unfamiliar with the term, is usually a decoration with a number of flags sewn to rope webbing.
With the proper postcards from Zazzle, you can easily spell out a special birthday phrase, name or message.
- Postcard bunting
- Twine or string of choice
Step 1: After receiving your personalized bunting postcards, cut each postcard according to the decorative edge of the template.
Step 2: String an appropriate number of mini-clothes pins to match the number of cards.
Step 3: Attach postcards to clothespin.
Step 4: Spread the cards evenly on the twine (feel free to add a knot after each clothespin to secure the card’s placement).
Step 5: Cut the twine at the desired length and display on a wall in the center of your party.
In our next DIY Birthday Series, we’ll show you how to make cupcake wrappers with flyers.
