Giant Bow Gift Wrap DIY

by Michaela Egger

Last month when my daughter and I were wrapping a birthday gift to bring to her friend’s party, the result was sort of underwhelming – especially for a 5 year old! “Mom, that gift looks kind of small” was her reaction once we had finished wrapping up the lovely little present we had bought. So, I thought “let’s make it bigger!” and came up with this easy giant bow gift wrap. All you need is a little more gift wrapping paper and you can make a big impression with an ittybitty gift!

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!
