Watermelon Round-Up

Watermelon crafts

There are few things more refreshing than watermelon on a hot day, and lately, every day seems to require more watermelon than the day before (it’s been so hot here!). Here at Lars, we’ve loved seeing so many watermelon products, DIY’s, and recipes floating around the web this summer, and turns out, we are not the only ones who are obsessed. Apparently, August 3rd is national watermelon day, and we’re all about celebrating random holidays. So we created a Watermelon Round-Up of our favorite watermelon-inspired products, recipes, and projects to help you celebrate! Read on →

Oversized Paper Chain Mural

Oversized Paper Chain BackdropRemember our Original Paper Chain Wall Hanging? You guys loved it! And so did we quite honestly. I love seeing you recreate the project and display it in your own homes. That’s what Lars is all about! This Oversized Paper Chain Mural is our fresh take on the idea. It’s perfect for party backdrops but also great if you’re looking for an art piece for a larger space. Another plus? This is a great TV project. In other words: Plop yourself in front of a good show and mindlessly make paper chains and before you know it, you’re done! Voila!

Icelandic Paper Poppy + The New JOANN

Icelandic Paper PoppyIf you’re a crafter, creator, designer, or maker of any means, chances are you’ve been to JOANN to fulfill your supply needs. Our local JOANN practically knows us by heart we go there so often! We were lucky enough to partner with Joann to help them reintroduce their new and improved brand. Becca and I (and Baby J!) traveled to New York to “Experience the New JOANN” and teach attendees how to create an Icelandic paper poppy. We joined Naomi of Bakers Royal and Kim from Sweet Red Poppy to bring “Handmade Happiness” to life in multiple forms. It was such an incredible night to be amongst so many talented and passionate makers. These are our people! JOANN is no longer just a fabric store. So make sure you go and explore your nearest location!

DIY Rattan Sunburst Mirror

DIY Rattan Sunburst Mirror

Sunburst mirrors are definitely having a moment and I’m all about it. You’ve probably seen them popping up around the design world, I’ve got one in my kitchen! I happen to love rattan–furniture, accessories, you name it! There are lots of beautiful rattan mirrors out on the market right now, including lots of vintage beauties! They can cost a pretty penny though so we decided to make this DIY Rattan Sunburst mirror for only $25! And that will allow you to make 2-3 mirrors! It’s much easier than you’d think and the end result is so stunning, no one would ever guess you made it.

So let’s make some mirrors!

Printable Parisian Placemats

Printable Parisian Placemats

Who doesn’t love Paris? Better question: Who doesn’t love French Pastries? I’ve got a serious love affair with Pain au chocolat (chocolate Crossaints). Bastille Day or French Independence Day is July 14th. What better way to celebrate than with Printable Parisian Placemats featuring illustrations completed with delectable French pastries! Marie Antoinette gets a wig of Profiteroles, Napoleon Bonaparte has a croissant hat, and Notre Dame flaunts stain glass-French Macaron windows! These are perfect for a Paris-themed brunch, party, or get together and make setting the table a breeze and a cinch to clean up! Simply send them to your local printer, pair with a red gingham tablecloth and blue and white striped napkins, and but all the French pastries!Printable Parisian Placemats
