DIY Honeycomb Birds

by Kathleen Ballos

Do you love honeycombs as much as I do?  With Easter right around the corner, I spotted egg-shaped honeycombs at Target and thought they would be perfect for making these springy bird decorations! Make a few and hang them around a dessert table this Easter – and once Easter is over, wouldn’t they be fun for a baby shower too?

Loopy Paper Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

I don’t think there will ever be a shortage of garlands to make for parties! When making the vintage-inspired springy paper garland and paper net garland, I had some scraps leftover and came up with this. Wouldn’t it be fun to make this garland in rainbow colors?

Jelly Bean Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

Don’t you love the candy selection around Easter time? So colorful and spring-like, I want to buy (and eat!) it all. Conveniently, National Jelly Bean Day is April 22, so it’s a great time to stock up on your favorite jelly beans. I think it would be so much fun to have a jelly bean tasting party, especially with all the gourmet flavors available these days. Make this jelly bean garland to celebrate – you can even hand out the triangles as party favors once the day is over! (PS – Put any extra jelly beans in these fun Easter boxes!)

April Fool’s Mini Lunch Prank

by Kathleen Ballos

April Fool’s Day can be a lot of fun, but in the past I’ve had trouble finding pranks that aren’t crazy involved or slightly cruel. If you pack lunches for anyone in your household, this DIY mini lunch is the perfect harmless prank! If you make multiple packed lunches, line them up on the counter first thing on April Fool’s Day and wait to see your family’s reaction! Just don’t forget to make a real lunch for them to eat too!
