DIY Anniversary Gifts

by Kathleen Ballos

Did you know that there is a specific material assigned to each year of marriage? I thought it would be fun to use the list as inspiration for DIY anniversary gift packages. For this post I focused on paper (1 year), wood (5 years), and silver (25 years) but wouldn’t fruit & flowers (4 years), cotton (2 years), and lace (13 years) be fun to do as well? It’s a lot of fun coming up with creative and affordable ideas to fill each package – let us know if there are any other cute gifts to include!

Crepe Paper Swirlers

by Kathleen Ballos

These DIY crepe paper swirlers are really simple to make, but they are so fun to play with! If you like taking pictures while waving sparklers around, these are a good indoor alternative. I made these with New Years Eve in mind, but I think they’d be fun for any party. You could even make some matching confetti throwers!

Silver & Gold Star Piñatas

by Kathleen Ballos

Whenever I put silver and gold together, I can’t help but think of Christmas. Make these miniature star piñatas and fill them with all the silver and gold treats you can find – they’re everywhere this time of year! Wouldn’t it be fun to make these as party favors for an all silver and gold party this winter? (P.S. Even more metallic ideas!)
