Holly Berry Surprise Ball

Tis’ the season for giving! December is all about shopping, presents, gift giving, and wrapping. Whether you’ve got a gift exchange coming up, or you’re involved in a cookie swap, or maybe you’re prepping some neighbor treats, there are plenty of opportunities for giving this month. We wanted to create a simple way for you to easily package up small treats in a really festive way. Enter the Holly Berry Surprise Ball!Holly Berry Surprise Ball

Typically surprise balls are crepe paper-wrapped balls that have a small hidden toy in the middle. We’ve opted to use paper strips to create a lovely holly berry that you can fill with candy, a gift, or even some homemade cookies wrapped in parchment paper! Adorned with a paper holly leaf, you can write their name and a sweet sentiment. These holly berry surprise balls are the perfect evening activity. They’re a cinch to make and deliver to all your friends!

Paper Magnolia Leaf Garland

DIY paper magnolia garlandThere’s nothing quite like a fresh garland of greenery… until you make a paper version and it lasts for years! We fell in love with Magnolia leaves after working on a paper magnolia flower months ago. We love the big leaves with their two-tone coloring of brown and green. The fresh magnolia leaf garlands you can buy are always so lush and we wanted to create the same effect with a paper version. The key to this garland is lots of leaves which you can bend to create a really full look. Brown kraft paper, paint, and wire are the only supplies you’ll need, making this a piece of cake to put together! We hung ours over a door frame, but it would look super lovely along a mantle or down a staircase. And guess what? It’s under $10!
