  1. Thanks for including Libby Lane Press is this list of talented DIY creatives!

  2. Love this what fun and inexpensive ideas..

  3. I LOVED this post! My daughter is turning four one month from today. I LOVE to go big on decorations. Last year I made my own Balloon arch. It was a little ghetto, but at least it was colorful. All the three-year-olds were mega impressed. I was looking for another idea with a lot of color. This post was just what I was looking for. LOVE the yarn chandeliers.

  4. Some really fresh ideas for DIY parties!!! Thanks so much for sharing!!! I can’t wait to try the Yarn chandeliers! Have you tried them?

    • Andrea, the chandeliers are one of my favorites! I have made something similar, but I’ve not used the yarn…I used string. LOVED them though. Such an impact. xoxo, Tauni

  5. Wow, lovely ideas!
