Beach Ball Party Favor & Banner {tutorial} + a Giveaway

Good morning! It’s that time again! Time for another fun edition of Team Creative Crafts, and this month’s theme is all about kid’s parties. Yay! I have 5 kiddos, so throwing parties is one of my specialties. If I do say so myself! ha! Let me show you how I made these personalized beach balls for my son’s huge 12th birthday pool party! Let’s get started! Oh and be sure to read to the bottom of this post for tons of party ideas and a giveaway! :)

 For this project you will need:
Cricut Joy (or other vinyl cutter)
permanent vinyl
transfer tape
weeding tools
beach balls

This project is so simple & cheap. ha! All you need are a bunch of beach balls. My son’s birthday is in August. So I actually found all the beach balls on clearance at Walmart for 50 cents a piece! All you need to do is cut the vinyl. I used my Cricut Joy for this, and it worked perfectly. FYI: I used the Smiley Monster font. It cuts so easy, and it’s nice and thick, so it weeds and transfers easily.

We ended up making over 20+ of these beach balls for party favors for all the kiddos at the party. Annnnnd they doubled as d├ęcor. I strung them together using fishing line and made a cute banner for our front porch and hung all the balls up there until the end of the party. The hardest part was blowing up all those beach balls! ha! ;)

We rented a giant water slide, made giant bubbles, played beach ball volleyball (of course!) and instead of cake we passed out Klondike bars. The kids had a blast and everyone loved taking their personalized beach balls home with them when we were finished partying. :)
