Pretty Paper Party Horns DIY

You may have banned these obnoxiously loud and annoying party squawkers from your house (who, me?!) but if you’re hosting a party outside – now that’s a different story. These are quick and easy to make and embellish, and can make a pretty centerpiece – that is, until little hands grab them and start the party train.

Materials: decorative paper, double stick tape, tissue paper, scissors, party horns.

Step 1: Cut off the plastic top of the store made horn.
Step 2: Cut a piece of decorative paper, between 12-18″ x 8″ or 10.”
Step 3: Apply double stick tape to one short end and one long side.
Step 4: Place the plastic horn on the short side, and slowly begin rolling the paper around the horn piece. You may have to roll and unroll the paper until you get the right angle and tightness.
Step 5: Cut several layers of tissue paper long enough to wrap around the large end of the horn. Fold lengthwise, and cut fringe.
Step 6: Lay the fringe down, put a piece of double stick tape along edge, then carefully stick to the outside of the horn. Repeat, and add fringe to the top of the horn too, if you wish.
Step 7: Commence the party, and cover your ears!

    That’s so pretty!! I like it!! I’m still wondering if that’s a good idea to make for a 10 year old or 7 year old birthday party, but, hey… you have to live dangerously!!!
