I'm excited to finally be linking up with my sweet buddy Holly (I've missed her) for her Tried It Tuesday for a quick idea I just tried to celebrate my son's birthday.
After your birthday boy or girl goes to bed, be a ninja and carry out your plan!
Here's my son's door before...you can't even tell it's his birthday can you??
I first started by adding a row of streamers (optional).
Then I used masking tape to tape up this drop cloth. I folded it in half then taped both sides and tucked the bottom under so the balloons wouldn't fall out. You need to leave it a little loose so you have room for the balloons. I'll give you one chance to guess where I got the drop cloth! (Alison and AMC you can't guess!) Yep, that's right, DOLLAR TREE!
After the drop cloth was secured, I stuffed it full with balloons.
**TIP: Get husband or significant other to blow up the balloons! :)
This was two large lawn garbage bags filled with balloons.
So, for about $3 (drop cloth, $1 and 2 bags of balloons, $2) you get a great reaction from whoever you're surprising!
My son loved it, but there was only one problem...he woke up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom so I didn't get to video his reaction. :( I asked him if it scared him when he opened the door and he said no, it made him happy! :) Still a success!
