Safari  Jungle Themed First Birthday Party Part III – DIY Decoration Ideas + Free Printables Included! | Roxy's Kitchen

Let’s move on to some of the DIY decoration ideas that are so easy and cheap to make and were such a big hit at the party! Because I love my readers, I will provide many printables in this post that you can download for FREE, including jungle animals cupcake toppers & toothpick stickers, ‘Happy Birthday’ pennant banner, ‘‘I AM 1’ high chair banner and others. This is Part III of the Safari / Jungle Themed First Birthday Party post series so if you haven’t read the others go check them out, or you’re missing out on some great dessert , appetizers, finger food & snack ideas!

We created an adorable NUMBER 1 SIGN OUT OF PHOTOS from Daniel’s first year and a few ones from when I was pregnant. All you need are your photos and some tape to stick them to a wall.

Another cute idea is to make a PICTURE CLOTHESLINE to show 0-12 month photos of your little ones. You will need a string, tape and clothespins. I’m pretty sure you can find these around your house. You can get creative a bit and use chalkboard clothespins so you can write the months or custom message for each month. I bought these at Michael’s – 2 for $1.50 – and I plan on re-using them at future parties.

All the jungle labels, stickers, banners I used at the party are FREE to download and print. I either found them on some great websites or I just designed them myself. I found these cute LEAVES LABELS on Pinterest and printed them out for FREE. You can find other designs as well with lions, giraffes, elephants, crocodiles and hippos on the same website.

For the HIPPO TOOTHPICK STICKERS I found a hippo image online and designed the round stickers using pixlr.com. You can download the JUNGLE ANIMALS TOOTHPICK STICKERS for FREE and in case you have other hungry animals around, I’ve included some images of giraffes, lions, monkeys and elephants as well. Plus a few Happy Birthday stickers because in the end we’re celebrating a birthday here! Just print them on heavy cardstock paper, cut them out and tape them to toothpicks. Some of the animal photos are from profilepicturemaker.com, just check out their stickers library. They have a cute African Safari Photo Frame as well and other frames, labels etc. that you can customize and download for free.

This is unrelated but I had to share a few pictures! Daniel got as a birthday gift from his godparents a custom-made book “Daniel Goes to the Zoo” . They had no idea what the party theme was so it was quite funny to see this gift. You can easily adapt most of the ideas from this post for a Zoo Birthday Party as well :) !

    I am curious about heavyweight card stock, where did you buy the paper, and Can I use the paper with canon printer? Thank you so much! Hope to hear from you shortly.

    • Roxy says

      You should be able to find it at Walmart… not sure what canon printer you have but most of them work just fine with this type of paper. It doesn’t have to be super thick by the way, just slightly thicker than regular paper so that the toppers can hold their shape better.
