A DIY Woodland Backdrop

by Michaela Egger

A woodland creatures party ideally takes place in the forest – somewhere in a sheltered clearing nestled in a charming woodland area. But not everybody is lucky enough to live near such a place. Or if they do, there’s always the chance of rain. So for a plan B, let’s take the party inside! To create that woodland feeling, you can bring in twigs, branches, moss and plants. And you can create this simple forest paper backdrop made with kraft paper and water color. A great DIY even for smaller children. (PS – Woodland party invitations!)

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?
