Put a Fin on It 02:48
Liven up a kid’s birthday party, host the perfect Shark Week viewing night, or just bring a healthy dose of summer fun to any gathering with these easy shark fin party decor ideas!
Ferocious Fin Headband
Trace and cut two shark fins with small tabs on the bottom out of craft foam. Once cut out, hot glue the two pieces together at the bottom tabs, fold together and hot glue the fins together as well. To finish up, hot glue the tab to a plain headband for the ultimate wearable shark fin accessory.
JAW-Dropping Napkin Holders
Start by painting a wooden clothespin with gray paint. Once dry, use a fine-tip black magic marker to draw tiny eyes on each side and a white market to draw rows of teeth on each side of the opening. Glue a small piece of red felt inside the opening to resemble a mouth and attach a craft foam fin to the top of the clothespin with hot glue.
A Fin for a Furry Friend
Following the same steps as the headband, cut out two larger craft foam fins with two tabs at the bottom. Hot glue the tabs together and place small pieces of hook-and-loop tape at the top of each fin. Wrap the fin around your furry friend’s harness for a fin-tastic Shark Week outfit!
Chomp Down on This Sharky Snack
To create a fun and adorable shark-themed snack, cut a fin out of craft foam and hot glue it to a disposable silver spoon. Top a blue pudding cup with whipped cream and place the spoon in the cup to create the perfectly beachy scene.
Give an ordinary blue cupcake a shark-themed makeover by cutting sandwich cookies in half and placing them in the icing to look like a shark fin coming out of the ocean water.

A Shark’s Favorite Snack
Kids will love eating popcorn out of a shark’s mouth. To make this adorable snack holder, roll a piece of gray construction paper up and tape off. Next, cut a row of shark teeth out of white paper and tape on the inside edge of the cone. Finish the look off with a gray fin cut out of construction paper and hot glued to the side of the cone.
