It was my ballet-mad niece Megan’s fourth birthday, so I decided to make some ballerina decorations for her party. I folded pieces of paper in half and cut out body shapes, with the arms held aloft to create a loop. Next, I folded circles of paper and snipped patterns in them to make skirts, which I glued to the bodies. Finally, I threaded string through the loops. The decorations were simple, cost nothing to make and Megan loved them.
