DIY Pokemon Pikachu party cups

Thrifty way to save some money for a Pokemon party. Make your own DIY Pokemon Pikachu party cups.

DIY Pokemon Pikachu party cups

My son wanted a Pokemon party. Kid’s birthday parties can be so expensive. But being the thrifty lady that I am, I don’t spend a lot on them. We were able to come up with some great ideas and together we made some easy decorations and party supplies. There aren’t as many pictures as I had hoped to get but I did get to take a few.

To make these cups you will need:

yellow party cups

black sharpie

red sharpie

All you have to do is find a picture of Pikachu and copied his face with sharpie. The kids loved these cups and they were a big hit. I love doing inexpensive things like this for kid’s parties that they love and they don’t cost anything extra.

The Pikachu behind the cups is a pin the tail game that I found here and printed off at a local print shop so I didn’t use all my ink. The kids had a blast with it!

Here are the invites we used. They are a free printable we found here  and added all the party info before printing them off at the print shop too.

Kid’s parties don’t have to cost a lot to be a lot of fun for the kids.

Camping Party Decorations, Great Blue and Gold Banquet Idea

I am so excited by how great our blue and gold banquet turned out!  It was so simple and inexpensive but yet it turned out great!  I think it was a real hit.

We had a camping theme and it was super simple to decorate for.  Our budget was very small and yet we were able to make it look great.  We took a small, older tent, some coolers, some small artificial trees, camping chairs,  sleeping bags and a fire pit with wood in it and used tissue paper in it for the fire. We made centerpieces (that will be a blog post) That is it!  Everything that we already had on hand.  Luckily we were using a church gym so we had plenty of room. We left half of the gym to be used for different activities, but the rest of the gym was decorated.

My favorite part was the fire pit in the middle.  Not only was it really cute, but we had the children gather around it for stories and camp songs during the evening.  They thought that was great!

Not only did it look great, but it just shows that you don’t need over the top decor to make a party a hit!  Just a few key pieces can really have a great impact.

Thrifty Lego Party Decor, Make a Lego Head!

We love Legos!  So much so that for my son’s 9th birthday party he wanted a Lego Movie theme.  I couldn’t have been happier because Legos are so fun, and easy!

You will need:

  • A large snack container
  • Yellow spray paint
  • something to take the label off with
  • Sharpie or black vinyl for the face

Our lovely container had this super sticky label on it that was impossible to get off!  I started off by placing it in hot water for a few minutes and let the water get it softened.  I then used a scrub brush and brushed off the rest of the label.

Once I had the label off, I used cotton balls and a little bit of nail polish remover to get the rest of the sticky residue off of the container.  It wasn’t perfect, and was still discolored, but since I was spray painting it, that was ok.  Just make sure to get the sticky off.

Next, give it a couple of thin coats of spray paint and let it dry.  I left the lid on because I planned on it just being a centerpiece, if you are planning on using it with the lid off, you will want to take the lid off to make sure you get coverage on the whole thing.  And then spray the lid separately.

One you are done and it is dry, cut out the face from black vinyl or simply draw it on using a sharpie.  That is it!  Another perfect, thrifty Lego craft for the Lego lover in your life.
