Homemade recycled Hawaiian Luau party decorations are fun to make and they add that special touch to your Hawaiian luau party. Recycled decorations are good for the environment and your bankroll. This article will provide you with detailed instructions on creating three homemade recycled Hawaiian luau party decorations.
Recycled Flower Garland
A recycled homemade Hawaiian luau party decoration that you can make easily is a recycled flower garland. For this recycled decoration you will need old magazines, mail, and any other paper material that you would like recycled. You will also need a hole puncher, scissors, a square piece of cardboard about 3 inches in length, ribbon and a small safety pin.
Start this craft by folding the cardboard in half twice. Then cut a wavy edge on the unfolded side of the cardboard. Unfold the template and sect it aside. Cut brightly colored pieces of paper into squares about 3 inches in length.
Stack several pieces of paper and place the cardboard template on top of it. Cut the paper to fit the template design. Then punch a hole in the center of the stack of papers. Attach the safety pin to the end of a long piece of ribbon. String the ribbon through individual paper cut outs to create a floral garden from recycled materials. This homemade party decoration is perfect for a Luau party.
Plastic Bag Pineapple Centerpiece
You can make a homemade centerpiece using recycled plastic bags for your Hawaiian luau party. For this homemade decoration you will need several plastic bags, a recycled bottle, scissors, twine, paint, and a paintbrush. You can also add flowers to the base of this homemade decoration or you can place it in a bowl with other Hawaiian luau party themed fruit.
Fill the bottle with water and close the cap securely. Place the bottle in the bottom of a green plastic bag. Then stuff that bag with several other plastic bags. If you do not have a green bag you will have to paint the top of the pineapple green. Fill the bottom of the bag until it can be shaped into a pineapple. Tie the top with twine.
Use the scissors to cut the top of the bag into points like the top of a pineapple. Then paint the bottom half f the pineapple decoration yellow. Allow the entire homemade decoration to dry. This is a great homemade decoration for a Hawaiian luau party.
Pizza Box Tiki Masks
Another easy homemade recycled craft project uses a pizza box, paint, and markers. Start this Hawaiian luau party decoration by cutting a large rectangle out of a pizza box. Then cut the bottom of the tiki mask into a point or a rounded edge. Paint the mask brown or black and allow drying. Add details using the markers such as eyes, a nose, and a mouth.
These homemade Hawaiian party decorations are one of a kind and made from recycled materials. Try them for your next Hawaiian luau party!
