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!

Ever since Halloween candy has started popping up in grocery stores, I’ve definitely had sweets on the brain! Make these candy toppers to decorate cupcakes for your Halloween party this year. And an added bonus – if you spell out “trick or treat” like we did, the message fits perfectly on a dozen cupcakes!

DIY Candy Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

I have a huge sweet tooth, so it is near impossible for me to resist a good candy garland. There have been some really fun ones here on Oh Happy Day in the past  too: candy lights garland, cotton candy garland, and jelly bean garland. Use any color tissue paper to whip up this sweet little garland for your next party.

Back To School Wrapping Paper

by Kathleen Ballos

Remember the classic Pink Pearl eraser? That’s what inspired this DIY back to school wrapping paper. I loved shopping for school supplies when I was a kid (I still do actually!) so I thought it would be fun to make these little packages of goodies for your kids to open the morning before they go back to school. Maybe the surprise will make the end of summer a little easier?
