Polk-A-Dots & Flowers Party Decor

I am always looking for big impact, low cost decorations! When I was planning our recent Ladies Event at our church this past June, I knew I had a huge room to decorate on a small budget. I already did a tutorial on the Polk-A-Dot streamers I made.  I wanted to show you my Polk-A-Dots & Flowers Wall decorations that I made from some diaper boxes! (How’s that for using what I had on hand?!)

 
When I am working on such a large project with many components, I tend to take over the dining room table! (I would love a huge craft table some day… But for now, we will just eat our dinners in the living room when mommy is the Crazy Crafting Lady!)
If you look closely at the cardboard on the table you will see a lightly sketched flower.  I wanted the sizes of the circles and flowers to be random, but balanced. (They didn’t have to be exactly the same, but I wanted the same amount of flowers & dots for either side of the room. I was decorating two walls) Read more

DIY- Party Polk-A-Dot Streamers

A couple of weeks ago our church and City Sisters group hosted an event celebrating Extraordinary Women!
We had an amazing time together. Our decoration theme was PINK w/ green accents.
As always, our goal was to make as big of an impact as possible with our decorations while spending as little as possible.

I have made these polk-a-dot streamers before. They are practically FREE!
Stop by your local paint store. (We headed to Home Depot)
Grab a large handful of paint samples in your colors for your party.
Use a circle punch. (Michael’s has one for appox. $8)
Punch out about a billion circles!

 
 
The key is to have a little bit of time. (Ok… A lot of time if you are making a lot of streamers!)
