Birthday Party - Paw Patrol (1st) Birthday Party

Pic Heavy Post!!!!!

Hello All,

I had so much fun planning this party. I love Primary colors, so I was excited when the colors (Red, Yellow, and Blue) were chosen. I created a lot of custom items for this party. In my previous post I listed some of the crafts (Centerpiece, Letter Blocks, Photo Frame, Cardbox, Gift and Games Banner, and High Chair Banner). Since this post is pic heavy I'm not going to go into detail about the steps it took to make the other decorations (Number Photo Collage, Paper Mache Name, Chipboard Letter, Bubbles, Gumball Machine, Photo Frame, and Treat Bags). If you need more details, send me an email.

Below is a link of some of the items that I used and a link for you if you would like to purchase them.

Fun Crafts - Paw Patrol Themed Decorations

Hello, This post is a collection of the SOME of the decorations for the upcoming Paw Patrol party.

By the way, I got the free printables from Oh my fiesta. Also, I found the following printables on Etsy.


I created this photo frame prop with a foam board, poster board, and rhinestone ribbon from The Dollar Tree, I used clipart from online for the decorations. I put the character die-cuts on the remaining foam board and cut them out with my X-acto knife. It gave the prop a 3D effect. I cut the letters out with my Cricut Machine.


I created these centerpieces with skinny wooden sticks and paint from Michaels, rhinestone ribbon from The Dollar Tree, I used clipart from online for the decorations. I glued the rhinestone ribbon and clipart on the painted sticks. For the bottom part of the centerpiece I used metal pails. I glued clipart to the outside of the pail. I used a styrofoam circle inside the pail to secure the top part and added shredded paper to finish it off.On another note, did you notice my Bling Wolverine cup behind the glue gun? It's the bomb! I purchased it from Treat yourself with bling. 


I created this cardbox with a foam letters, wooden dogwhite, black, red, yellow, and blue cardstock and Large white box from Michaels, red, yellow, and blue rhinestone ribbon, number and star stickers, and white foam board from The Dollar Tree, and a wooden fence with grass from Hobby Lobby to finish off the look.

I don't have instructions on how I created the box. I don't really use measurements. I'm a visual person. I just cut where I think I need to cut. I do use a ruler to make sure that it's straight. LOL. The box top was somewhat difficult to create. I tried to get it level several times. Maybe I should use measurements.  The box was one step away from the trash can. LOL. After almost scratching this project, I finally got it right. I took a picture of how it looked before I decorated it so that you can have an idea of how I made the top. I'm happy with the way it turned out. Moral of the story, NEVER give up!


I created these letter props with wrapping paper and rhinestone ribbon from The Dollar Tree and 12 x 12 x 12 boxes from Staples,  I used clipart from online for the decorations. I created the letters with the Grobold FontI don't know how, but I deleted all of the pictures that I took of them. They are super cute.


In addition to the banners from Etsy,  I created the High Chair Banner with different sizes and types of ribbon. I used some of the left-over die cuts (blue bone die cut, Chase Badge, etc. 
I created the  Gifts and Games banner with Red Pennant Banner and the remaining paw print ribbon and blue bone die cut. I had some pre-cut letters in my die-cut supplies!
I think that the banners are FAB! 

By the way, I hand-cut all of the characters, bones and badges. I so need an assistant! :-) The letters were pre-cut.
I hope you enjoyed the projects that I'm showcasing. Stay tuned for photos from the actually party. I should have them posted in the next couple of days.
