Glittery Gumdrop Ornaments | The Sweetest Occasion
Darn it, where was this tutorial three weeks ago?! I had a vision of my tree being Candy Land themed, with candy canes, pastel ornaments, and yes, a gum drop garland! I was originally going to use actual gumdrops and spray them with glue but yeah… it didn’t work. It was a sugary sticky mess. This is a much easier and less sticky way to make them! Oh well, it’s a perfect craft to make during Christmas holidays ready for next Christmas!

DIY Peach Prize Ball | The Sweetest Occasion

We’re already planning my niece’s birthday party for March and when I came across this DIY I thought it would be a fantastic alternative to the normal goodie bags! All you have to do is get some little toys, chocolates, etc. and then start wrapping them with crepe paper strips. It’s like your own personal little pass the parcel! You could adapt this for older kids too - think small jewelry items, chocolates, key chains - anything small and easy to wrap. Wouldn’t this be a great way to propose to someone, with the engagement ring wrapped in the middle?!

Hand Painted Mug | The Sweetest Occasion
One thing you learn about working in an office - do not touch other people’s mugs. Doing so will lead to passive-agressive emails, accusations and hurt feelings. The only thing is that everyone in our office has very similar mugs that they all put into the same cupboard, so the above situations quite often arise! So for Christmas I’m going to make people personalised mugs like the above one so that there can be a little peace this Holiday season!

Glittery Winter Houses | The Sweetest Occasion
Did you know it’s Christmas? It is, I swear! Well… it is in the stores. Giddy Aunt. It’s really weird seeing Halloween decorations next to Christmas stuff. I’m not going to bombard you with a lot of stuff until November, but I couldn’t resist showing this gorgeous little glittery village. I’ve been trying to work out what colours I’m going to do this Christmas (yes, I have a different colour theme each year!) and I think I’ll base it on this. I think it will look super cute on my mantel!

DIY Pencil Holder | The Sweetest Occasion
For some reason this makes me think of cake?! New pencils are probably better than new crayons. Except for when the lead is broken through the centre and you sharpen them and they keep breaking and ARGHSTUPIDPENCILWHYDOIKEEPSHARPENINGYOUWHENYOU’REBROKENINSIDE!? What was I saying? Oh yeah, this is really cool. Thank goodness I have a drill. Now I just need a big block of wood and some super sharp pencils…
