DIY Paint Can Decor

Materials

  • Plastic Paint Cans
  • Felt
  • Thin Piece of Cardboard
  • Fabric Marker
  • Scissors

Directions

  1. Create a pattern: Draw a paint-like pattern on the cardboard. For this DIY, I used two different patterns, one that was fairly simple and wavy and another that was more complicated and drippy. Cut the cardboard to fit inside the circumference of the paint can and make sure it’s the right length and height.
  2. Cut out felt pieces in various colors and carefully place them inside the paint cans. You don’t even need to tape or glue to secure the “paint” you’ve created. The felt is stiff enough to maintain its shape— especially since you checked the fit with your pattern in step 1. For Jack’s party, we mostly focused on cool tones like blue and green with some yellow sprinkled throughout, but you can be as creative and colorful as you want with the felt that you select.
  3. Use the paint cans as centerpieces on tables or in other areas in your party decor. Enjoy!

Styling tips

Amy Tangerine shares her top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

Choose a color palette and stick with it. Save it on your phone and reference it when you are buying anything. Often, you don’t have access to a space until a few days or hours before your event. Having items that fit within the color palette provides a cohesive feel.

Tip 2

Layer up your tablescape! It is way more interesting and colorful even if it is a bit unrealistic. Adding dimension and texture to the spread makes pictures look amazing and can set the vibe and tone of your event.

Tip 3

Designate spaces so that your guests know where to go— especially if you’re offering multiple types of activities for various age groups. This also helps limit messes!

Tip 4

Offer finger foods! Because your guests will be mingling and talking and (in our case) watching their children all at once, you want to make sure the food you serve is easy to eat and carry on a party plate.

Tip 5

Keep the space cool. It might make party set-up a little chilly, but once guests start to filter in, it will be worth it. A vibrant even full of people will heat a room quickly. If it’s a little cold before party-goers arrive, it will easily become the right temperature and people will feel more at ease.

Tip 6

Have plenty of baby wipes handy. These are great for wiping hands and cleaning up minor messes.
