Kid’s DIY Camp Out Party Decorating Ideas

by Linette

If you’re planning a kid’s camp out party this summer, and you’re looking for easy DIY camp out party decorating ideas, we have some to share with you! Since we’ve been talking quite a bit about camping and camp out parties I thought I’d share some quick and easy party decorating ideas.


Camp Bunting Banner

Supplies needed:
Camp themed scrapbook paper
Peel and stick letters

Head to your local craft store for some camp themed scrapbook paper. We found quite an assortment at Hobby Lobby.

1. Cut the scrapbook paper into triangles. They should each be somewhat even to each other.
2. Line your triangles up in a row. You will need one for each letter in CAMP and for each letter of the child’s name. It is also helpful to cut out a few extra.
3. Peel and stick your letters to the triangle (one per triangle) so they read CAMP and CHILD’s NAME. For example, CAMP DINO, the nickname of our birthday boy.
4. Use your glue or tape to secure the triangles in order to some twine. We created one string of banner with the words CAMP and one with the child’s name.

Hang your camp themed bunting banner at the entrance of your party to welcome your guests to camp!
