When expecting a baby, there are so many things you have to pay for. And, of course, this is only the beginning. From the time you become a parent, you never stop spending again- whether that is children’s clothes, gifts, furniture, education, activities, and maybe even a bigger house or car.

Close friends and family, too, will soon be spending some serious amounts for the new baby. Many of them don’t ever visit you again without bringing a little something for the baby.

So, given the money that is about to be spent in the near future, wouldn’t it be nice to save some money while you all can?

For example, those throwing the baby shower will be spending money for decoration, snacks and sweet treats, and gifts for the mother-to-be. If they could avoid some of the expenses, that would be great.

An idea would be to host the party at home, or go for online invitations instead of printed ones, but what really is expensive is those fancy decorations.

A man on TikTok shared a video in which he shows how to make the ultimate baby shower decor by using a broomstick and a couple of extra materials that are inexpensive and easy to get a hold of.

User @obeymydope_ness posted a video on the popular platform in which he shows step-by-step how you can make a fancy decoration item all by yourself.

As he explains, you will only need the following items:

  • broom
  • decorative mesh
  • one floral foam block
  • balloons (the more the better)
  • random empty boxes
  • wrapping paper
  • two teddy bears

To begin with, you will need to take off the brush and keep the broomstick.

Then, poke a hole in the foam block, in which you will be putting the broomstick.

Then, you’ll move on to the balloons. The TikToker uses twelve of them, but obviously, you can play with the number.

Once you blow the balloons, you’ll have to tie them together to create a super big ball.

Take the empty boxes and arrange them in such a way that they turn into a big box. Wrap them in some nice paper, and don’t forget to add a cute bow on top to make it look even sweeter- let alone, more fancy!

Take the teddy bears and cut a hole in them that you will then take through all their body in order to open a hole through which the broomstick will pass.

Once the teddy pears look like pole dancers, then you’re ready to assemble the whole thing.

The box at the bottom, the broomstick coming out of it with the teddies on it, and it all ends with an amazing balloon arrangement.

Can it get any better than that, really?
