Cinco de Mayo Crafts and Decorations - Martha Stewart Holidays

Fiesta Invitations

Invite guests to your Cinco de Mayo bash with these festive cards. Glue crepe-paper fringe to blank notecards for invitations; use rubber stamps to state the occasion.

Welcome guests to the fiesta table with papel picado place mats this Cinco de Mayo. You can find these cut-paper flags (sold in rows attached to string for hanging) at crafts stores. Snip them off their string for place mats, or cut them into strips for napkin wraps. Colored flags can bleed when wet, so arrange them over a paper tablecloth to avoid stains.

This assortment of brightly hued blooms is the ideal centerpiece for your Mexican-style fiesta.

What's a fiesta without a pinata? Liven up your Cinco de Mayo party with a papier-mache pinata for all ages.

Try using wheat-paste powder, available at hardware and art-supply stores, instead of ordinary flour -- the resulting paste will be less prone to cracking.

Set your Mexican-themed table with these festive napkin rings made from a disposable aluminum tray. Inspired by traditional Mexican punched-tin work, these napkin rings use a similar technique.

Illuminate your Cinco de Mayo gathering with string light decorations made by using a clam shell-shaped template.

With a few snips and folds, and a little imagination, you can turn humble paper bags into party-perfect decorations. They'll look just right at an outdoor fiesta.

Scented Confetti

Decorate your table with confetti, or toss some up in the air during the fiesta.

Punch kraft or construction paper using a decorative hole punch . Spread the confetti pieces out on waxed paper. Mist very lightly with a favorite scent.

What is a Color Recipe? ⊰ ⊰ ⊰ ⊰ ⊰ ⊰ ⊰ ⊰ ⊰ ⊰ ⊰ ⊰ Who doesn't love cherries, shortcake and whipped cream? And, who doesn't love red? I'm talking about Cherry red, from bright red to deep, dark black cherry red. What a delicious color! Like watching calories, you have to use red in small amounts. It's a powerful color and can either make or break the look of your room.  Behr has this fantastic red called Cherry Tree . It's not too orange or too blue - it's really the perfect, classic red.
