Looking for decor ideas for Cinco de Mayo? Or maybe you need some help with a summer party theme? Or, maybe you’re hosting a luau this summer? Look no further than your local craft or party supply store. Honeycomb paper shapes are a colorful and festive way to decorate for any summer get-together. Here are a few ideas for customizing those honeycomb decorations for some summer fun.
For easy fruit decorations for hanging or as centerpieces grab an orange honeycomb paper ball, a red heart, or a yellow egg shape from your local craft or party supply store. Before fanning out the shapes, trim them slightly to fit the shape of the fruit you’re making and add some green paper leaves. For a centerpiece, trim the bottom of the honeycomb shape so it’s flat before fanning it out so it will sit flat on the table.
Another option is to use honeycomb paper pads to make your own shapes in the color of your choice. We R Memory Keepers makes two sizes of pads in several colors. You can find them at scrapbook.com HERE.
Tip: When adding honeycomb shapes to straws (or other thick items), try cutting off the glued edge first so it will fit around, then add some glue to secure it to the straw.
Lollipop sticks topped with honeycomb shapes make for darling cupcake toppers. With sticks this thin there’s no need to cut off the glued edge of the honeycomb paper.
I used the We R Memory Keepers Honeycomb Pads to cut out the fun fruit pieces on this banner. Plus, I used one of my favorite crafting tools, the Alphabet Punch Board, to punch the letters from gold foil cardstock. Love how it turned out!
Honeycomb paper is so much fun to create and decorate with. I love the texture, dimension, and color it adds to party decor. Recently I shared these ideas, plus more honeycomb paper party decor ideas, on a local morning talk show, Studio 5. You can watch my spot on their website HERE. Enjoy!
