In this article, I’ll teach you how to construct the ideal decorations for your Candy Land birthday party or any other sort of occasion you could be celebrating. First, we’ll make a candy garland, which is very straightforward, and then we’ll move on to more involved décor ideas, such as picture backgrounds and cake toppers. The most exciting part? Making your party decorations is not only a fun activity but also saves money compared to purchasing them from a shop.
Concoct a sweet strand to hang up.
Using a candy garland as a decorative element at your celebration is an attractive option. You may construct one out of whatever kind of candy you choose, but if you want to make it more festive, I suggest using multicolored candies like M&M or jellybeans.
To Complete This Activity, You Will Need:
String or yarn
Paper that is colored on both sides and is made of card stock (or thin cardboard) in the color(s) of your choosing (you can use this to make the base of the cake stand; see below)
Make a picture background that looks like a candy world.
The following steps will show you how to build a candy land picture backdrop:
Obtain a white cloth background by either purchase or borrowing. You may choose any plain fabric, but polyester is recommended as the best option since it is simple to clean and does not wrinkle as quickly as other plain fabrics.
If you want to hang the backdrop on a wall, you may use pushpins or thumbtacks driven into the wall. Just make sure that the points of the pushpins or thumbtacks are not sharp enough to harm the wall. Instead of hanging anything like this, you might try using double-sided tape if you don’t have a place in your home or apartment where you could hang it.
You may attach the candy pieces using double-sided tape, glue from a glue gun, or even a sewing machine if you feel very adventurous.
Decorations For A Celebration Using Candy Garlands
For a birthday party with a Candyland theme, hanging candy garlands from the ceiling is an excellent way to decorate the party space. You may construct whatever design you choose to accompany your topic by stringing together sweets in several patterns to make necklaces, bracelets, or rings.
If you’ve never made candy garlands before, here are three simple methods to get you started:
You could make a banner out of various colored licorice strips by stringing them together into one long piece and using it as a banner over the top of the room or across the table where guests will be eating their cake. 2. Make a single long piece out of all three colors by stringing together a black one, a white one, and a pink one, and then hang it as a decoration on each side of your dessert table! 3. Create mini-rows by combining colors in various ways; these are great if you need small decorations but don’t want to commit too many resources and don’t know what else might be appropriate.
Construct A Cake Topper In The Style Of Gingerbread Homes.
Make the topping for your gingerbread home yourself. Going out and getting a gingerbread house cake topper is possible, but if you want to have some fun with it, you may construct your own! How to do it:
To begin, cut your home’s foundation out of either cardboard or strong paper using a craft knife (you will be making a dollar-store version here). You must cut two rectangles and two squares from thick cardboard or paper. These should be somewhat smaller than the tiers of your cake. Now, cut two rectangles out of a piece of Styrofoam one inch thick. The dimensions of these styrofoam rectangles should be somewhat bigger than those of the cardboard and heavy paper rectangles from step 1. (be sure to leave plenty of room around each rectangle for icing). Next, cut out four triangles of varying sizes to use as the roof using scissors. The biggest triangle should be almost twice as broad as the smallest one, and all other pieces should fall somewhere between those two proportions. To give them dimension, press down on each piece of Styrofoam with some weight (like books) until they form into triangles; then repeat this process until all four pieces are made! An eraser from a pencil or an ice cream scoop with holes can be used as an indentation tool. After all the shapes have been cut out, use a hot glue gun to adhere them together around the edges where required. Don’t worry too much about getting everything to be perfect since they won’t look so horrible anymore after we paint them!
