Candy Land {decorations}
Okay, this party is seriously messing with my sweet tooth!  I mean, it's hard not to want to pull out the candy stash when you look at these pictures.
I showed you the giant lollipops yesterday.
I cut the gumdrops out of cardboard we had laying around.
I let the kids help me paint them.
It's hard to see in the pictures, but we sprayed them with some glitter to make them look sugary.
Giant Game Pieces
I used some sheet rock scraps we had left over from our basement remodel to make the game pieces.
I just free-handed half of the game piece, then traced that half on the other side so they would be symmetrical.
Then Nate cut them out with one of his {many} saws.  I'll be honest.  I have no idea what it is called!  Ha!
We propped the game pieces up against stakes throughout the yard.
{And by WE, I mean Nate ;) }
Candy Land {castle photo backdrop}
My biggest undertaking was DEFINITELY King Candy's Castle.
My father-in-law let me at his giant cardboard stash.
I free-handed the castle in pencil.
Then I painted it with craft pain and added glitter to the "candy" pieces.
Now that the party is over, I'm not sure what to do with it?
I'm pretty proud of it and don't want to just throw it away.
Any idea?
