Here is a fun and easy little DIY project you could do for a birthday party to make the party blowers a little sweeter. It is super easy and can be done in about 30 minutes. These would work great for a little girls’ birthday party and look great displayed in a vase like flowers. Find the full instructions and photos right here.

Materials Needed: Crepe Paper, Long Party Blowers, Party Blowers with white plastic mouth pieces, scissors, tacky glue.
Step 1: Make the Petals. Fold a strip of crepe paper into a stack and cut several petals at the same time. Make sure the grain is going from top to bottom so you can stretch it. Taking a few petals at a time stretch them out using two thumbs so they curve and look like a petal.
Step 2: Glue the petals around the neck of the blower.
Step 3: Make the Leaves. Fold a strip of crepe paper (probably green) and cut fringe on one side.
Step 4: Unroll the strip and then glue it, starting at the neck with the fringe going up. Wrap it around the cardboard until it is covered.
Step 5: Take the blower with the white plastic piece and remove the paper. Add the white piece to the end of the flower blower. Et voila, you’re done!
