If you’re looking for a simple project, it’s this DIY easy Happy Birthday table topper.
Birthday planning can often feel overwhelming or like a competition. But it doesn’t have to. Just a few small touches can go a long way. If you read my Birthday Banner post, you know that I really LOVE birthdays.
I have learned that it doesn’t take much to make the celebration feel like you put a lot of effort into it (even if you didn’t.)
For this decoration, I made it easy for you with free files at the end of this post. Simply print on cardstock and cut.

Happy Birthday Table Topper Supplies
You can use this file in a few different ways. You can print it and cut out the circle and use it was a wall decoration.(Or print several and put them on several walls.)
Print out two copies. Glue them together with a string or ribbon. Hang it from the ceiling.
Happy Birthday Table Topper
And, the main idea of this post, make a table topper. Print 4 copies on cardstock. Fold in half.
Spread glue or Mod Podge on half and stick it to another half.
I like to use a brush to paint my Mod Podge on so I get a consistently thin layer.
You can do this with just two copies, but I like the dimensional look of 4.
When you are gluing, make sure to glue in a craft stick or dowel in the center so you have a way to anchor it in a base.
Table Topper Jar
For my base, I grabbed an old jar (I have a rather large collection of old glass jars that I save from the kitchen) and filled it with stones to weigh it down and to give my craft stick a place to nest. (You can use sand or pebbles. Anything that will give it a little heft.)
I cut a strip of paper the width of my jar and wrapper it around and glued it. I had dotted paper which tied into my confetti theme.
Like our Birthday Banner, you can embellish this with glitter or jewels or anything that will take it up a notch.
If you decorate your party with any of these files, please send me a photo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy (lazy) crafting!
