When it comes to birthdays, it is very easy to get carried away with buying decorations.
If you are like me, the last thing you want to do is to shop all around for them.
There are aisles and aisles of everything you need and so many more things you don't.
Besides the expense, the time and the driving, it can be overwhelming looking for just the right color, size or design.
So instead of shopping at multiple stores and driving all around town, I decided to make our own.
Why not, after all I used my Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge to make the invitations
It was surprising simple once we made the decision to make them.
We had all the supplies, so it was just a matter of picking what we wanted, cutting, assembling and glittering.
We made it an afternoon project for my daughter and I.
It was fun, simple and full of glitter.
We made about 50 Hello Kitties in pink, red and black and we glittered them.
We made about 50 large cupcakes and we also glittered them.
We made 50 smaller glittered cupcakes.
Hello Kitty was glittered on her face, body and heart.
We used the Hello Kitty as decorations on the walls, the table, and the food table.
We decorated the walls and door all over the house.
We even decorated our front door with Hello Kitty.
Aside from using the cupcakes for decorations we made goodie bags and decorated them with glittered cupcakes.
This was very simple once we had everything cut, and then it was assembling, glittering, and cleaning up.
The best part was not only did we have decorations that fit the color and character we wanted but once the day was done we ended up with decorations that were ready to go for the scrapbook.
This year we will be doing the same, making our decorations but as for the theme that has yet to be determined.
