The jungle is an ecologically diverse area full of lush green foliage and interesting sights and sounds. It's unlikely that you can have a party in this often inhospitable setting. But you can give party guests an idea of it by throwing a jungle-themed bash. With just a few inexpensive supplies, you can create jungle-themed decorations.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Light green crepe paper
  • Masking tape
  • Green construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard
  • Stapler
  • Notice board paper
  • Jungle animal images
  • Overhead projector
  • Tape
  • Green fabric

  1. 1

    Hang light green crepe paper from the ceiling. Use masking tape to suspend the crepe paper across the ceiling. Allow the paper to hang down in large loops so it looks similar to creeping jungle vine.

  2. 2

    Cut large palm leaves from green construction paper. To make the process go quickly, create a standard pattern using a sheet of cardboard. Cut out the pattern and use it to trace the leaves. Then cut out the leaves.

  3. 3

    Staple the palm leaves to the hanging crepe paper. Add them sporadically, placing them on both sides of the crepe paper vine.

  4. 4

    Use notice board paper to create life-size animals. Draw your animals free hand or locate pictures online and copy them onto transparencies. Use an overhead projector to trace the animals. Get your friends involved in the fun by having a pre-party gathering and allowing them to help you build your collection of jungle animals.

  5. 5

    Place the animals around the room. Have a cheetah lurking in a corner or perch a toucan atop a vine.

  6. 6

    Cover lights with green fabric to create a green, jungle-like lighting theme. Purchase inexpensive green fabric, and place it over shaded lamps in your room. If your room has only suspended lighting, use tape to attach the fabric so that it hangs down and alters the light colour. Do not allow the fabric to touch the lights, as this can cause the fabric to smoke or burn.
