My kids practically have to drag me out of the upholstery area of the craft store since I always want to see what their tassel selection looks like. I had this huge spool of gold sequin trim just hanging out (with everything else) in my garage and knew I wanted to make something with it. Long story short, here’s a sequin tassel DIY. I made these as flair for my balloon Valentine’s but they can be used in so many other ways!
It’s amazing what you can buy with a dollar, isn’t it? I don’t have dollar store close to me but when I go see my dermatologist, there are two things I do after my appointment. Go to Sonic, because they put NERDS in your drink, and go to the dollar store. Last time I was there I found rope in all kinds of pretty colors. So of course I bought a bunch. First thing I made with it were these rope planters. You can find the full tutorial over on Minted’s blog, Julep. You really should make some. I love the texture it gives the planter. Now if only I can remember to water these guys…
I love Valentine’s Day and all the gifting possibilities! If you love lavender and balloons, this simple DIY is for you! Balloons are super cute, but don’t last for that long. I decided to pair them with something that can be used long after Valentine’s Day. Whether making these for your kids or surprising you best gals with a gift at their door, these lavender sachet balloon bouquets are something that everyone will love!
Marble is so hot right now. It’s totally classic and trendy at the same time and I want it on everything. But I don’t really have any money to spend on it. So I thought to myself, “Self. How can you get that look for less?” And I’m real smart. Plus I have a raging addiction to Amazon which lead me to the best marble product ever. And I figured out how to make this DIY tray with a faux marble look. You know you want one too.
I always feel like I don’t know how to dress for the winter. I hate to be cold and so that means I look for things that are more function than form. I have a few pairs of jeans that I rotate between (why is it so hard to find flattering jeans that don’t cost a fortune?!). And I wear a LOT of sweatshirts. A good (meaning stylish) sweatshirt can be hard to find and I usually just end up picking up multiple basic ones from the men’s department at Target ($8 a piece, yo! It’s a bargain!). But I was starting to feel really blah so I decided to do a DIY fashion makeover on a black sweatshirt. I love how it turned out and it was SO easy.
Here’s another quick celebration idea for you! What kid (or adult for that matter) wouldn’t love to have a cake with a fun DIY cake topper, in the form of a balloon, set down in front of them?! It’s super simple to put together but will absolutely cause smiles and giggles.
