Throw a simple shower for an experienced mom-to-be. Watch as Parents lifestyle contributer Amanda Kingloff shows how to make easy DIY invites and décor for this party.
-For mom who's expecting baby number 2 or 3 or 4, plan a sprinkle instead of a traditional shower with some cute DIY ideas. For the sprinkle shower you'll need powder and solid craft paper, scissors, a hole punch, thin string, a hot glue gun and circle punches. When your guests get this invitation in the mail, they'll get a surprise sprinkle when they open it up. To make confetti, just take a hole punch. I'm using a heart shape but the circle will give you the same effect and just make a bunch of punches in craft paper. Drop them into the envelope and there you go. You can print this adorable invite from parents.come/sprinkle. Now we're gonna make a garland to decorate for the sprinkle party. Take your paper punches and make circles from the same craft paper that you use for the confetti. To assemble the garland, lay a few circles and align on your work surface and squeeze a small dab of glue onto each. Take your string and lay it on top of the glue and quickly [unk] it before it dries with another circle of the same size. Once you're done, hang a few strands either vertically behind your buffet table or horizontally around the room. If you made some extra circles and confetti, just sprinkle them around your buffet or dining table. Sprinkles are great way to pair for the more experienced mom-to-be.
