This fun and easy do-it-yourself project from the 'Trendy Tree' blog shows how to make affordable party accents. Putting together a children's birthday party can often be very costly, especially if you have a large number of guests attending.
Instead of spending a fortune on decorations they can be made with a few simple materials. To make the jumbo lollipops you will need some colorful balloons, wrapping paper tubes, paint, and some clear cellophane. Simply paint the paper tubes in white, and then assemble the balloon on top, and wrap it up with the cellophane, and lastly, tie it up. The finished product is truly surreal.
To add even more goodies to the party you can make individual candies by taking two colored plastic dinner plates and taping them together, and then wrapping them in the cellophane. This project from the Trendy Tree blog shows that with a bit of creativity you can achieve beautiful end results.
