DIY Moana Inspired Boat and Oar (prop)

So today I’m sharing my third Moana Inspired birthday project; my DIY Moana Boat and Oar.  If you haven’t seen my other two Moana party decor/props you can check it out here and here.

We wanted to create a  prop for the family to take fun photos with the kids. This project was a bit time consuming but the end result was well worth it.

What you’ll need (for the boat)…

  • Long Cardboard box
  • glue
  • brown paper roll (From Homes Depot – used for flooring)
  • tape
  • red paint (optional -craft store)
  • box cutter
  • white fabric (for the sail)

DIY Moana Inspired Maui Fish Hook

I’m back with another tutorial for you guys.  Like I mentioned before we previously celebrated my daughter’s 10th birthday (you can find the tutorial here).  The party was Moana themed – which is one of our favorite movies so far.  We decided to make our own Maui Fish hook.  I’m very proud of my girl because she did the majority of the project herself and I think she did a phenomenal job!

What you’ll need…

  • White foam board (Dollar Tree)
  • carboard
  • Brown Marker or paint
  • Glue Gun and sticks
  • white painters tape (dollar tree)
  • White paint (found at craft stores)
  • Tan felt fabric

DIY Moana Inspired Palm Trees

A while ago we celebrated my youngest daughters birthday.  She was turning 10 and wanted a Moana themed birthday party.  I prefer to DIY as much of my kids party decor as I can because a) it’s sometimes cheaper for me to use whatever left over products I have and b)  I’m crazy like that and like to torture myself with extra work!

I recruited my daughter to help me with this project and I have to say it was a super simple project and we had so much fun working together.  So let’s get started..

What you’ll need..

  • Bamboo skewers (Dollar Tree or Supermarket) cut in half
  • Paper towel rolls or toilet paper
  • Brown paper bags
  • tape or glue
  • Green Paper
  • 2″ foam ball (Dollar Tree or Craft store) cut in half
  • Flower Pot  (Dollar Tree)
  • rocks (Dollar tree)

Directions…
