Alice in Wonderland is a great story that has been the inspiration for movies, television shows, video games, and music. Alice in Wonderland is a great theme for a party, and you can make several decorations with this theme in mind. This article will provide you with detailed instructions for making homemade Alice in Wonderland themed party decorations.
Tea Cup Place Card Holder
The tea party scene in Alice in Wonderland is one of the most memorable parts of this story, and tea cups make wonderful place card holders. For this homemade decoration you will need several old tea cups, and remember if they are broken that is even more appropriate. You will also need cardstock, markers, and scissors.
Start by cutting long rectangular strips from the cardstock. It is fun to use cardstock with different patterns, but you may need metallic or white markers to write the names of your guests on the place cards if the patterns are confusing. Fold the rectangle in half to make a V shape, and write the name of your guest across the folded part. Place the card inside of the tea cup, and your Alice in Wonderland party decoration is ready.
The Mad Hatter is a well loved character from Alice in Wonderland, and his hat can make the perfect centerpiece for your party. For this homemade decoration you will need a large hat, feathers, a scarf, a playing card, a couple wine corks, glue, a couple pennies, and some cupcake liners.
Start this homemade decoration by wrapping the scarf around the base of the hat and tying it in place; you can wrap it and tuck it into itself also if you like. Next add the feathers, playing card, and hat pin to the side of the hat by sticking them into the scarf.
Add some mushrooms to the Alice in Wonderland themed decoration by gluing a penny to the bottom of each wine cork. Also glue an inverted cupcake liner to the top of the wine cork to make a mushroom cap. You can trim the cupcake liner if you like, and feel free to use a marker to add spots to it as well.
Talking Flower Garland
An easy Alice in Wonderland themed Garland can be made using tissue paper, pipe cleaners, pompoms, wiggly eyes, a hot glue gun, markers, and scissors. Start by twisting several green pipe cleaners together into a long strand for the base of the garland.
Then cut several large circles from tissue paper and layer a couple circles on top of each other. Use the glue to secure them in place and add a pompom to the center of the flower. Glue on some wiggly eyes, and glue the flower to the garland. Add some leaves to the garland as well by cutting diamonds out of green tissue paper and gluing them to the garland.
Add a caterpillar to the garland by gluing several blue or purple colored pompoms together in a row, add bent pipe cleaners as feet and antennae and wiggly eyes, and attach the caterpillar to the garland with glue. This fun Alice in Wonderland themed garland is a great addition to your party decorations.
Homemade decorations are a fun part of throwing a party, and you can make several Alice in Wonderland themed decorations with these instructions. So throw an Alice in Wonderland themed party this year, and you will enjoy making these homemade decorations as much as you enjoy your party.
