Eating cake for the first time is an important first birthday party activity, so a lot of attention is on the child's high chair.
I gave ours a makeover to match the part decor with a basic pennant banner cut from glittery gray cardstock and a doily-embellished paper fan.
It was a stylish upgrade from the everyday Cheerio-throwing, baby food-tasting function of the high chair!
DIY 1st Birthday High Chair Banner
decorative scrapbook paper
Step 1: Cut out pennant-shaped flags from one sheet of scrapbook paper. You can freehand these or make a template to trace so all the triangles are the same size.
Step 2: Cut out each triangle or flag and punch two holes in the top.
Step 3: I made a center medallion for the high chair banner by making an accordion-folded paper fan with a paper doily in the center and gluing a number one to the front. Here's the how-to to create this easy party decoration!
Step 4: Cut a piece of yarn to fit around your high chair. Thread it through each triangle leaving a space in the middle for the paper medallion. Use hot glue to attach the medallion to the yarn.
Step 5: Tie the banner to your high chair.
Matching 1st Birthday Hat
I also used a piece of yellow cardstock to make a party hat for the birthday girl.
I was able to personalize the hat for the occasion using the same doily and sparkly number one treatment I used on the high chair banner.
It is a quick and easy craft that adds the perfect accent to a first birthday party.
