Printable Megaphone Necklace

by Alix Sorrell

Whether you want to exercise your hollerin’ skills, cheer for your favorite football team, or just do a shout out to your friends, this easy-to-assemble megaphone necklace is the perfect accessory to get your voice heard!

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.

Printable Apple Boxes

by Alix Sorrell

It’s the start of a new school year and time to make a good impression. Wouldn’t it be fun to impress your teacher with an apple treat box? These boxes would also be perfect for a Back to School Party or a fun way to celebrate International Eat an Apple Day (September 20th). Pack these apples with any type of candy but if you want to be a bit sneaky you can fill them with gummy worms!

Neon Party

by Ashley Page Norton 

I love exploring hardware stores for craft supplies – there’s always great inspiration to be found. The rope, twine, and cord section is my favorite – so many projects can come out of these materials, especially when they’re in an awesome palette. After finding a neon orange, pink, and yellow, I developed three ideas using this brightly colored parachute cord: placemats, placecards, and coasters. Either together or separately they would be perfect decorations for a cheerful party!
