When you decorate your house for a kid's birthday party, the party decorations can be costly from a party supply store. Instead of buying pre-made party decorations, make them yourself using craft materials. For example, make giant, three-dimensional lollipop decorations using basic craft materials, such as polymer clay and cellophane. This enables you to decorate for the party using colourful decorations, without spending a lot of money.
