*Said in my best Maui voice,* “You’re welcome.”
The Birthday Party Centerpiece Curse?
It’s hard to believe that my princess is another year older. After her Tangled Birthday Party last year, I really fell in love with having a DIY statement centerpiece as a part of her parties. But I admit, it’s hard to top an already over-the-top party. That Rapunzel centerpiece was amazing, easy and cheap. Surely I could do it again, right?
With the Moana movie on the docket for her 6th birthday (which she has been telling me over and over since the day after her 5th birthday), I knew that I had to come with yet another amazing centerpiece for her Moana Birthday Party.
Thankfully, we had a bunch of leftover tissue paper from Christmas – and tons of school glue sitting around. A few rips later and we had the perfect and Easy Moana Birthday Number DIY. So whether your child is celebrating a 1st birthday or a 6th – it’s a great addition to your Moana party ideas on a budget!
Easy Tissue Paper Number DIY for a Moana Party
Therapy, crafting AND a beautiful Disney inspired party centerpiece in one? Heck to the yes!
Inspired by Te Fiti herself, this Moana Birthday Number Centerpiece will definitely make your child’s party shine! Roll up those wads of tissue paper, my friends, and make this Easy Tissue Paper Number DIY for under $5!
What You Will Need:
- (1) Paper mache number (or paper mache letter if you prefer!)
- (7) sheets of green tissue paper in 2-3 similar colors
- Artificial Pink Flowers, like THIS
- School Glue
- Hot glue gun
- Optional: Green paint
- Optional: Paint your number (especially the sides). Allow to dry. I definitely would have done this first – but honestly jumped into the tissue paper part too quickly! Lesson learned 🙂
- Rip your tissue paper into tiny balls, about 1/4 inch thick.
- Glue your balls to the top surface of your paper mâché number. Make sure to keep them tight and random so you fully cover the top of the number. (This is a GREAT time to allow your kids in on the crafting – my daughter LOVED helping to rip up paper.) Allow to dry.
- Once fully dry, use your hot glue to apply your flowers to the top in whatever design you think is best. Allow to dry.
It’s seriously that simple.
The therapeutic ripping, rolling and crunching of tissue paper to complete a task – it was such a fun craft! And I couldn’t ask for a better centerpiece to celebrate my daughter’s 6th birthday in style, Disney style!

It turned out so cute! Makes me think of the tissue paper crafting days in school where we used our pencil to create a little polf and stamp them down in there. I like this style of rolling it up tightly, looks very lush. Beautiful!
