Pretty Paper Party Horns DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

You may have banned these obnoxiously loud and annoying party squawkers from your house (who, me?!) but if you’re hosting a party outside – now that’s a different story. These are quick and easy to make and embellish, and can make a pretty centerpiece – that is, until little hands grab them and start the party train.

Corn Husk Carrots DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Did you see these beautiful corn husk creations on The House That Lars Built? I thought the shape of the corn husk lent itself to being a carrot – which can be used for place cards, to decorate a wreath, or to embellish a pretty little Easter basket. PS – Paper Carrot Treat Bags!

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

There’s not much cuter than a little creature made out of a peanut.  Nestled in their beds of green grass,  these charming little Easter bunnies will guard the candies hidden inside. And would you believe that fluffy grass is made out of a green paper napkin!!

Tightrope Walker Cake Topper DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

We’ve all seen our fair share of two-sticks-and-a-piece-of-string-cake toppers, so this topper is simply a visual pun on the idea. This string, in this instance, is the tightrope – and a pretty little water-colored lady is about to take her first cautious step out onto it. It’s simple to make and it will make everyone smile.

3D Birthday Banner DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

A long time ago, I pinned this beautiful cake I’d come across by Sarah at Signe Sugar. I loved it so much, it inspired me to create this paper banner version. I had no idea how to go about it, so I just jumped into cutting, bending and gluing. Once I got the hang of it, it came together pretty quickly. And, if you mess up, it’s just paper – -  so just cut another piece and keep moving forward!
