Create unique and fun decorations to make
your Star Party one of a kind.
Make your own original art gallery or have
the party guests do it. Supply paper and watercolors
and brushes, permanent markers, map coloring pencils,
gel pens or crayons. Frame with heavy paper or draw
a frame around the paper. Laminate it with clear self-adhesive
plastic or slip it into a clear plastic sleeve. Bingo!
You have an instant space art exhibit to hang.
Mylar balloons and silver gift-wrapping ribbon can be
used in many ways. Tape the balloons to the ceiling
with ribbon hanging down. Paper planets can be attached
to the ribbons.
Spaceships can be made using two aluminum
pie pans; one inverted on top the other. Before sealing,
run a string, ribbon or clear fishing line through the
center top of one and use this to hang from the ceiling.
Decorate with glitter and glue or use a black permanent
marker to draw portholes and doors.
Table decorations can be made with such things
as an aluminum foil table runner, glitter and stars
found in the stationery department of your favorite
store. Other options are to buy an inexpensive white
or light blue tablecloth. Draw space pictures -- stars,
planets, astronauts and spaceships, with crayons or
permanent markers onto the tablecloth. Washable in cold
water on delicate cycle.
For an outdoor star gazing party at night,
glow in the dark paints can add fun to costumes, banners,
picnic table coverings, centerpieces and constellation
Your cake can be baked in an ovenproof bowl.
