DIY Jungle Vines for Dinosaur and Jungle Themed Parties

If you like DIY decorations that are cheap and super easy, than these jungle vines might be right up your ally!
For T’s dinosaur themed party, I made one large vine to decorate his play area.

Materials:

  • Brown paper bags (how many depends on how long you want your vine to be)
  • Green construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun and hot glue

Directions: 

  1. Cut off the bottoms of your paper bags
  2. Cut a slit down the side of the bag so that it lays down flat as one long piece
  3. Crunch up the bag into a ball once or twice. This will make it easier to twist.
  4. Twist the bag vertically. Do this with all of your bags.
  5. Use your hot glue gun to connect your vine pieces.
  6. To make the leaves, use green construction paper. Fold the paper in half vertically, and cut out half a leaf so that when you open it up it will be symmetrical.
  7. Glue your leave on.
  8. Viola! All done!
