DECORATING IDEAS

Use green construction paper and thin dowel rods to make palm leaves for decorating.
Jungle VinesWater Bottles LeafGarland
Jungle Vines – brown craft paper or paper bags cut into strips & roll/twist them… cut out leaves with different colors of green construction paper & attach leaves with glue gun.Duct tape is a perfect solution to cover the water bottle labelsUse 3 colors of felt to make the leaves and hang it on strips of the darkest green felt. Make them fairly large (because everything’s big in the jungle) and put them over doorways, fireplaces, over windows, and tables.
Balloon Palm TreeJungle TreePaper Tree
Balloon Palm TreesMake a round cardboard trunk and then scrunch paper bags around it.  Spray paint brown.  Use different colored green balloons for the leaves.  Decorate with a stuffed monkey or two, or three…Use about 2 rolls of brown packing paper from Wal-Mart. For the leafy vines, use green party decoration from Wal-Mart.

The coconut trees are just five “leaves” cut out of green construction paper with three brown balloons and 5 strips of crepe in the middle that’s all been all taped together & affixed to the ceiling. Also lots of leis strewn all over the furniture, as well as coconuts (brown balloons) scattered on the floor.Use any plants you have around the house, or borrow from friends.  Add a jungle animal and some balloons, and… you have a centerpiece! Crates and animal print balloons.  Very unique, and cute.
