Shower Inspiration: Part 2

Here are the rest of the DIY projects from Allison's baby shower! You can see part 1 here.

My other favorite craft for Allison's baby shower were the candy egg favors!

I got the idea from this pin:



And I made a few changes to make it a little less time consuming. In the original, she made the nests out of melted chocolate and chinese noodles. I decided to use brown shredded paper, and it took less than 10 minutes to make all of the nests!

Since I wasn't using chocolate in the nest, I decided to put the eggs (we used jelly bean eggs) on a drop of melted chocolate so they would stay in place in the nest.
And for the tags, I designed them using MyMemories Suite, printed them on cardstock, and tied them up with yarn!

I followed this tutorial for the tissue paper pom poms, except I crinkled them up so they would look a little less uniform and more fluffy and cloud-like. 


My mom wouldn't let me tape the yarn to the ceiling, so I got these dowels at Home Depot for less than $2 and set them on top of the light fixture. I was worried it would look tacky, but several people at the shower commented that it looked "very anthro" :)

I found these birds and birdhouses at Michael's for .99 each! I bought some cheap acrylic paint to spruce them up and match the decor!



And for the game, I got the idea from this pin: 



Again, I designed them using MyMemories Suite and printed them on cardstock (I bought a 100-sheet pack for $5 and made everything, including the invitations, from this one pack! Such a deal!) And I changed Wishes for Baby to Wishes for Fisher, because it just sounds much cuter :)


That's it! I've found that it's a lot more fun to make everything rather than getting store-bought things. I think it makes for a much more personalized event!
