Trolls Movie Birthday Painting Party

This year, Payton celebrated her seventh birthday with an exciting Trolls art birthday party theme. As an avid fan of the new Trolls movie and especially the bubbly character Poppy, it was the perfect choice for her. Combining her love for art and messiness, a vibrant painting party was just what she wanted.

Pre-Drawn Canvas Design

The DIY painting party was held in our garage, where each little artist had a designated spot adorned with a personalized apron, paint tray, brushes, and a canvas outlined with the iconic Troll head. You can learn how to print an outline on your canvases here.

To get their creative juices flowing, we provided sample pictures, but we encouraged everyone to let their imagination run wild with their Troll designs.

At the paint station, they selected their colors on a plastic pallet.

DIY Easels

I even crafted easels from plywood and small hinges for each painter to work comfortably.

The cake showcased some of Payton's favorite Troll characters, with colored chocolate cascading down the sides and her name added for a personalized touch. Cupcakes were displayed on a foam board pallet elevated with mason jars.
