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!)

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!
