Upcycled Cinco de Mayo Decorations

Cinco de Mayo is just a few days away, but there’s still time to get your DIY on if you’re planning some festivities. Whip up some guac and margaritas to go along with these crafty decorations, and celebrate Cinco de Mayo in DIY style!

Cinco de Mayo is all about bright colors and festive decor, which works really well with reclaimed paper like magazine pages, junk mail, and scrap paper from other crafty projects you’re working on. Whether you’re planning a small party or a full on 5th of May blowout, we’ve got your decor covered with decorations for the walls and for your cocktails.

If you guys have your own crafty plans for Cinco de Mayo in the works, I’d love to hear more ideas in the comments!
