Some DIYs for your Circus Themed Birthday Party

Mar 29, 2016 | party ideas | 27 comments

Hello dearies! Today I will share to you the most exciting part in organizing your own party – DIY (Do-It-Yourself)! If you follow this blog, you would know that we had a Circus Themed Birthday for our son’s 1st birthday. If you are someone who loves arts and crafts, you will surely enjoy and love this part!

First things first, a birthday party won’t be complete without the celebrant’s birthday party hat!

Daddy E made this and he totally nailed it!

We also opted to customize the party hats for the kids. We made 45 mini hats with different designs. Anything goes! I would like to thank Gel, Angeline and Ava for helping us out on this project. I am not so sure if we saved in terms of expenses but definitely, we had so much fun doing this. 🙂

Things needed:

Things needed:
12″ letter blocks (from Divisoria for 45php each)
Red textured paper from National Bookstore (35php/roll)
Gold & Royal Blue Glossy Ribbons (from Divisoria 20php/set with different colors)
Glue / Glue Stick / Glue Gun


So basically we just covered the letter blocks with the red textured paper and outlined each letter using the gold and royal blue ribbons alternately.

Carnival Cupcake Topper


I got these cute toppers online and attached on a stirrer to make sure it can stand firmly on top of the icing and viola! You can also use the stirrer as a spoon incase you don’t want to get your hands dirty while enjoying your cupcakes.

Party Loot Bags!

Thank You tags can be found here. Toys, coloring books, and other stuff bought from Divisoria at an affordable price. Candies are from the groceries. This approximately costs 100php per loot bag. 

I guess that’s it for this DIY Circus Themed Birthday post! 
Hope you had fun reading this.

Thank you for dropping by dearies!
