Instructions

  1. 1

    Get carnival-themed images at a public domain image site like PD Photo (pdphoto.org) or a pay site like Fotosearch (fotosearch.com) by searching for clowns, candyfloss, carousel and other images that fit a carnival theme.

  2. 2

    Open a graphic design program like Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator.

  3. 3

    Open a new document, and select a size for your poster. Carnival posters are usually very large, so choose a size that will be large enough to make a presence at your birthday party.

  4. 4

    Select a background for your carnival poster. For example, you could make red and white stripes the background to your posters, as these are common to carnival rides and games.

  5. 5

    Upload your carnival-themed images to your poster.

  6. 6

    Select a circus or carnival-themed font, and enter text detailing the image you selected for each poster. For example, you could write "Step Right Up, Birthday Boy," like the call of a carnival barker, or "Happy Birthday, Bearded Lady," like an advertisement for a sideshow.

  7. 7

    Insert a border on your carnival birthday party poster. For example, you could put a balloon or popcorn border around your poster.
