Playing with scale can make even the most mundane object exciting. An elephant that you can fit in the palm of your hand, a slice of cardboard pizza the size of your front door, or an itty bitty plate of pancakes that can fit in your dollhouse—they all make you smile no matter what.
Check out these three ginormous food crafts that would make any kid swoon. Perfect for parties for just for silly playroom decor, they are easy to make and darling to look at. Too bad they don’t taste as good as they look!
How flippin’ cute is this painted pasta party decoration from Handmade Charlotte? Wagon wheels, penne, bowties, ravioli…I thought I had seen it all until this appeared! So cute and simple.
I would surround myself with honeycomb paper decorations all day long if I could. They have such a nostalgic yet modern feel. And they naturally lend themselves to transforming in to fruit like these beauties from The House That Lars Built.
Willie Wonka’s got nothing on these pops from Oh Happy Day. Made from styrofoam disks and dowels, they are so easy to make. Perfect for a Candyland Birthday party!
Back in my days at Parents magazine, i worked on this adorable Ice Cream Social party. These decorations were made with styrofoam balls, tissue paper, and cardboard cones.
