Welcome to Candyland!
Here’s all the decor we did for Sophia’s party. I basically wanted everyone to feel like they were inside the game. And I didn’t want to paint or spend tons of money.
I made each area out of bulletin board paper paper, from a teacher store. I attached it to the wall using blue painters tape or scotch tape. I used the Cricut and printer to make the signs you see next to each area. The sign on the door uses Candy Cane font I found on a free font site, then cut with the cricut.
Gingerbread Plum Tree- brown and green teacher paper, purple paper plates into plums.
Peppermint Forest made out of Candy cane striped wrapping paper- 1.00 roll at Target dollar spot.
Candyland game wall leading into the kitchen- made out of plain cardstock squares, Jo-Ann fabrics or Meijer carries them. The candy garland is made out of paper plates spray adhesive together, with clear cellophane wrapped around. Then thread twisted around each to hang together. Gingerbread men on the squares cut out with the Cricut.
Gumdrop Mountain- butcher paper in bright colors, glitter glue for the snow caps on the mountains.
Licorice castle. Black and red bulletin board paper.
Gramma Nutt House- Brown, White and Green bulletin board paper with blue windows and doors out of cardstock.
Happy Birthday banner out of cardstock, from the rainbow birthday party last year.

Lollipops- made out of dowel rods, pack of 20 for 3.00 at Michaels, and paper plates spray adhesive glued together over the dowel rod. I also wrapped some of these in cellophane and put outside in planters on the walkway and on the mailbox.
Pin the crown on Princess Lolly- I free hand drew princess Lolly from the picture. Natalie and Sophia helped me color it in.
Ice Cream Balloons- normal balloons, waffle cones made out of craft paper, slightly bigger than balloon. It’s hard to attach the two together, so we had the balloons taped to the cone in the back, and sitting in a sundae cone so they’d be upright.
Gloppy from the Molasses Swamp- packing paper from an amazon shipment. Reduce Reuse Recycle people!
Candy Castle- bulletin board paper.
Whew! I’m tired just looking at all those decorations and it was almost a month ago!
