Mermaid Themed Birthday Door Hanger

birthday-decor-door-hanger

Door hangers are one of my favorite party decorations because it’s the first thing your guests see. I feel like it kind of sets the tone for your theme. So, to go with Olivia’s Let’s Be Mermaids party, I made a tulle covered “4” embellished with white pencil starfish. This is such a quick project when you have a million other things on your party to-do list. Here’s how it’s done!

What you need:

  • Foam Board
  • Pencil & Eraser if you’re free-handing it
  • X-Acto Knife
  • Ribbon
  • Tulle
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Starfish

Draw (or trace) your design on the poster board and then cut out your shape using an X-Acto knife. I free handed the 4 to resemble seaweed to go with our mermaid theme. Not too shabby!

Time for the fun part! Wrap your tulle around and around and around and around… completely covering your design. For a thicker and plushier look, be sure to cover any gaps where your poster board may be showing through the layers.

To hide the end of the tulle in the back, I folded it over and glued a little white and pink paper seashell on top. I made these with my Cricut for our party food labels and had one to spare.

Next, glue your starfish on where you want them. My 4 year old took these two photos over my shoulder, ha! When your #instagramhusband isn’t there to take them for you… #instagramdaughter. She didn’t do too bad, actually!
