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!

Spider Web Cake Topper DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Did you know it only takes an hour for a spider to spin a web? That’s about how long it takes to create this simple cake topper using just a sheet of paper. Then attach a plastic spider for the final touch.  Make sure your guests do not get caught in your web when you serve them cake!

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!
