Before your apartment grows cold, it’s time to start planning a late summer party for your friends and family. An end of summer bash is the perfect way to send off the warm weather of 2016, and revel in the final rays of the summer sun. Though, it can be difficult to think of ways to entertain your guests with cost-effective decorations. Luckily, we have the solution! Read on for some DIY party decor ideas.
- Twine Hanging Lamps
A large beach ball surrounded by twine soaked in glue can make for the perfect DIY lantern. Wrap twine around the ball in random directions and leave a small opening. At the hardware store, you can find a simple cord and light bulb fixture that you can slip inside. Bam, an instant and cheap way to light your party!
- Gold-Dipped Favor Bowls
You can buy simple white favor bowls at the dollar store, and golden spray paint from the art store. Tape off a wavy line about halfway down the bowl, flip it over, and spray paint the exposed white with gold. When you remove the tape it should give a cool paint-dipped effect. These are classy, cost-effective ways to make your party look a little more like a summer sunset.
- Succulent Centerpiece
For your table, you may be tempted to make a centerpiece comprised of flowers. Using succulents and cacti can still add that extra pop of color, but with plants that are going to remind your guests a little bit more of summer and warm weather.
- Bold Patterns
Pinks, yellows and blues look great against a white background. You can use summer-related patterns, like lemon prints, or simply a repeated design. Either way, it’s a great color scheme to use.
