Paper Flower Lights Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

Have you noticed Christmas items already popping up in stores? Although it is still a bit early, I like being able to use some of the items in non-Christmas ways, like this paper flower garland made from small white Christmas lights! This garland is very multi-purpose: you can make it for a party, home decor, or decorate your tree with it.

Walnut Turkey Placecards

by Kathleen Ballos

It’s not too often that I use food items in crafts, but walnut shells were just perfect for these turkeys! Make these simple place cards for your Thanksgiving table – they’re super quick to make. You could even use them as cake toppers instead! (P.S. Did you know a group of turkeys is called a rafter?)

Dinosaur Party Invitations

by Kathleen Ballos

Have you heard of Dinovember? I love how playful and creative you can get posing toy dinosaurs – I thought it would be a fun excuse to hold a dinosaur party! Make these paper mache dino egg invitations to get the party started. At the party, have your guests take part in a dinosaur posing competition – I’m sure the results will be hilarious!

Haunted Village Surprise

by Kathleen Ballos

Are you hosting a Halloween party this year? Make this miniature haunted village as decor but also a surprise way to hide candy! Arrange the paper houses on a window sill, tray, or tabletop and when someone wins a game let them pick a house to reveal their prize. P.S. Another fun way to include a haunted house at your party!

Mid Century Straw Decor

by Kathleen Ballos

I love looking at mid century design for craft ideas – these hanging stars were inspired by the popular starburst and atomic patterns. Made of straws, these decorations are super quick (and affordable!) to make. And check out more retro party projects!
