2015 was a year filled with creativity and fun! We’ve curated twelve of the best party and wedding DIY projects of the past year (a few that are ours and a few from our favorite party pros) to help get your creative juices flowing into the new year.
1. Animal Cracker Favors
2. Bindis and Bangles Bridesmaid Gift Box
With a few items from our Indian Jewel collection, you can create a unique “Bindis and Bangles” gift box to pop the question to your bridesmaids. It’s a cute gift, especially for South Asian brides or for brides with a jewel tone wedding theme!
3. Ice Cream Float Bar
We originally created this DIY for a Fourth of July bash, but an ice cream float bar works wonderfully with almost any party, from a a kid’s birthday party to an outdoor bridal shower.
4. Garden Style Succulent Favors
Tiny potted succulents were all the rage in 2015, and we think this trend will stay strong into 2016. This fabulous DIY by Brittni Mehlhoff of Paper & Stitch takes white geometric planters up a notch with pretty pink acrylic paint and nameplate flags. They’re perfect for escort cards that double as wedding favors!

Add some pizzazz to a white antler bottle stopper and dip the tips of the antlers in acrylic paint. Customize your own with your wedding or party colors!
