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.

  2. 2

    Roll the clay coil into a spiral, and place the spiral onto an aluminium baking tray. Bake the clay spiral in a 200 degree Fahrenheit oven for 10 minutes. Let the spiral cool for 30 minutes.

    Insert a hot glue stick into a hot glue gun. Plug in the hot glue gun to heat up for 5 minutes.

    Squeeze a dime-sized dollop of hot glue onto the end of a wooden dowel, and press the dowel against the edge of the polymer clay spiral. Hold the dowel in place for 3 minutes to allow the glue to cool and harden.

  5. 5

    Cut a piece of coloured cellophane into a square using scissors to measure 24-inches on all sides.

  6. 6

    Cut a ribbon with scissors to measure 18-inches long.

  7. 7

    Wrap the cellophane around the polymer clay lollipop, and tie the ribbon into a bow underneath the lollipop to secure the cellophane around it.

    Repeat to create as many three-dimensional lollipops as you need for your event.
