Flamingos are my latest obsession. I think it's mainly due the fact that it's the perfect summer party theme. And that they're pink, of course! Not sure they'd be such a hit if they were a different color ;)

So for our flamingo pool party last weekend, we (my 8 year old daughter and I) made some DIY flamingo table decorations and headbands that double duty as photo booth props!

Using Bird's Party new flamingo printables especially designed for making large table decor (or headbands..) made the job so much easier!! It was a super easy, fun DIY craft and the possibilities are endless when it comes to using these cute flamingos for your party!

DIY Directions:

1) Print and cut your flamingo party printable templates according to instructions on the printable kit. Glue the templates to the top of each half circle polystyrene shape.

2) Paint the polystyrene semi-circles with the pink acrylic paint and paintbrush. Let it dry for 30 minutes or so.

3) Repeat the pint process to get full coverage on the semi-circles.

4) Hot glue feathers tot he pink semi-circles, superimposing them to cover most of the base,  pressing each feather firmly for a few seconds to secure in place.

Your cute flamingo party decorations can be used as they are as table decor, like in the photos below.
