Party decorating idea | How About Orange

Party decorating idea

Back in January, Hostess with the Mostess posted this photo from Anders Ruff. The hanging polyhedrons caught my eye, so I added this idea to my DIY decoration toolbox. The balls are just paper plates stapled together, made from this tutorial at Family Fun. Nifty! You could use colored plates or spray paint white plates orange. (Or some other color, if you must.) A nice idea for parties or shop windows.

You could make little ones with cupcake liners. And stuff some Christmas lights inside for a glow-ball.

Hmm. . . I was looking for a less-girly alternative for those tissue poms. This might just be the ticket! Thanks!

I've done this on a much smaller scale with circles punched from holiday cards. It makes a lovely little ornament.

My kids and I made these-- very easy and fun. It looks a bit like the Ikea pendant light hanging in our kitchen, although this was easier to put together!
