Sparkling Mario Party Coin Decorations

When it comes to decorating for a birthday party, or any party, a great cost effective way to spruce up your party is through decorations. Sure you can go to the local party store and buy theme related décor, but what if your budget doesn’t allow for all the coordinated extras.  Well then I say make your own. It is a good idea to look for simple recognizable elements from within your theme and try to find ways to incorporate them into your party environment. This can help make the party atmosphere continuous, and not just festive in one area. When I was planning my son’s Mario Party, I found ways to decorate the walls the floors and even the doorway entries. I chose to make sparkling Mario star coins, which I arranged and hung up in such a way like how you would see coins grouped together in the game. These sparkly coins were made from poster board with a little gold glitter and a chisel tipped permanent marker. Popped a small hole up top and used clear string to hang above doorways and hallways. Here I will show you how and I will provide a template, so that you can make your own.

Supplies that you will need :

• Bright Yellow Poster board (standard size 22×28)
• Pencil
• Scissors
• Permanent Marker
• 1/8″ hole puncher
• All 3 template print outs (template one, template two, template three)

Before you begin, I recommend making all of the print out templates sturdier. To do this, you don’t need to use any of the nice yellow poster board for reinforcement, instead look to your recycling bin. Find cardboard from packaging or products like an empty cereal box. That type of cardboard is sturdy yet it can still be cut through with little resistance.
