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!
1. PIN-WORTH PASTA
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.
2. FANTASTIC FRUIT
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.
3. LUSCIOUS LOLLIES
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!
4. DIGGIN’ THESE DONUTS
If you’ve ever visited Studio DIY, you’d know she has a thing with donuts. And these donut balloons are just asking to be iced and sprinkled! Who knew these existed?
5. EYE-CATCHING ICE CREAM
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.
