I know that my Pinterest boards might tell you differently, but setting up a party at home doesn’t have to be all consuming, or cost the same as a vacation to Hawaii! These paper balls each take about a minute to make, and by using only one piece of scrapbook paper (and 2 staples), they are crazy affordable. Line a doorway, wall, or entire room with them for quick and a simple and pretty look. Your procrastination tendencies will thank you.

To make the paper party balls – cut a 12 inch colorful piece of scrapbook paper into 6 sections. Combine the ends and staple at one side, flip over and staple at the other side. That’s it (for real!). Hang the balls with fishing wire for a clean and simple look.
