Birthday Crafts: Fireman Bucket Decor

One of my favorite hobbies is decorating for birthday parties. Planning ahead is definitely one of my strong qualities. I decided to do a Fire truck themed birthday party for my son’s 3rd birthday. The ”œBirthday crafts” theme was perfect for me showcase my skills. Decorate the table with these cute red buckets and add a fun bow for additional cuteness.

  • Bowdabra
  • Bowdabra Bow Wire
  • Red polka dot ribbon
  • Yellow polka dot sheer ribbon
  • Red/White grosgrain ribbon
  • Wooden dowels
