Bandana Berry Baskets

Bandana Berry Baskets

Fourth of July is in one week! What are your plans? I’m spending time with family and soaking up the sun. If you’re enjoying the holiday with company, we’ve got the perfect gift to send your guests home with. These Bandana Berry Baskets are seasonal and patriotic, but not overly so! Last year we posted a tutorial on how to bleach bandanas to give them a beautiful faded look. Check it out if you missed it! We’ve chosen a patriotic palette of those bandanas to wrap up fresh berry filled baskets. We’ve even created a coordinating bandana inspired tag to accompany the gifts! So share the fruits of the season with bandana berry baskets!

See how to wrap your basket properly with a bandana!

DIY Paper Tube Chandeliers

DIY Paper Tube ChandeliersAs soon as I laid eyes on the ‘Cocktail Lights’ of Hanna Anonen I fell in love immediately. The colors and playful shapes were so stunning. I needed to make a DIY version. These DIY Paper Tube Chandeliers are a fun way to bring color into a space. I love the impact a lovely chandelier can have on a room. These chandeliers are a fun alternative to basic desk lamps and don’t require any side tables! You can customize the color palette to whatever you desire, limited only by the paper variety at your nearest craft store. Paper, embroidery hoops, and twine are all you need for this DIY. You can easily install a hanging light bulb in the center of the tubes. On the other hand, they’re perfect without the light to serve purely as decor!

Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Wedding season is in full swing! Yes, we’re still riding that royal wedding wave and we’re not ashamed (clearly!). The flowers had to be my favorite part of the royal wedding of Harry and Meghan. Those flower arches were absolutely dreamy outside of St. George’s Chapel. We loved the lush and overflowing greenery and the all-white color palette. Meghan’s bouquet, in contrast, was much more restrained. She held a very petite and lovely bouquet of flowers in an all-white color scheme. Though I tend to agree with the ‘more is more’ mantra, the simplicity of this bouquet is so stunning! We researched each flower in her bouquet in order to create a very similar paper replica. Did you know it’s tradition for royals to include a sprig of Myrtle in their bouquets? It represents love and started with the wedding of the eldest daughter of Prince Albert and Queen Victoria.

Floral Numbers Birthday Cake Topper

Floral Number Birthday Cake TopperIn case you didn’t know: June is the unofficial birthday month! At least here at the Lars Studio 🙂 Four members of our team have June Birthdays! Where are all my Geminis at?! Queen Elizabeth also officially celebrates her birthday in June. The royal affair is known as the Trooping of the Colours. This grand celebration includes the royal guard, a procession for the Queen, and the gathering of the royal family. Which means we’ll get to see the newlyweds again! Any guesses on what Meghan will wear?

Floral Number Birthday Cake Topper

If you happen to be celebrating any birthdays this month, or this summer, this Floral Numbers Birthday Cake Topper is a sweet way to honor them! Simply mold wire into the number you want and cover with fringed crepe or tissue paper! Tiny paper flowers make the numbers appear to be blossoming vines! Fun fact: Queen Elizabeth’s favorite flower is the primrose, but she also adores wildflowers. So she’d surely approve of this cake topper.
