DIY Mixed Media Earrings

DIY Mixed Media EarringsWe’ve been a bit on a jewelry kick lately, but can you blame us? They are often the finishing touch to an outfit and have the power to take a look from blah to brilliant! We were inspired by the incredible jewelry designs of Ranjana Khan, and these earrings in particular.  She uses so many materials and the finished product is so lush and extravagant. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some supplies and play with all the elements! That is how these DIY Mixed Media Earrings were born. It was fun to see how some basic craft supplies could translate into such an elevated look. No one ever said handmade things need to look handmade! So save yourself some money and have some fun with designing your own earrings! People will be stopping you in the street to ask where you got them!DIY Mixed Media Earrings

Tropical Leaf and Hibiscus Backdrop

If you have any memories associated with crafting throughout your life, chances are that Fiskars scissors have been involved. Known for the Original Orange-handled Scissors, their products are the cream of the crop for crafting and have been for as long as I can remember. This month, we’ve partnered with Fiskars to celebrate the 50th Birthday of their iconic orange-handled scissors! Quite the milestone! Inspired by the vibrant orange color of their products, we created bright orange hibiscus flowers out of crepe paper showcased on a deep green tropical leaf backdrop. This is the ultimate party backdrop achieved with just paper and a trusty pair of Fiskars orange-handled scissors. A simple project with a big impact, our favorite kind. You should probably wear a bright orange tropical dress just to pay your proper respects as well 😉

Crepe Paper Peony Wall

DIY Crepe Paper Peony tutorial

We were tickled pink to be able to create the backdrop decor for fashion influencers Amber Fillerup and Rachel Parcell and their pop-up shop a few weeks ago. They were both celebrating recent releases in their companies and wanted to throw a party to celebrate! We created a paper peony wall installation to use as a photo booth backdrop during the event. We were making crepe paper peonies for days, to make sure we’d have enough to cover the entire wall with a luscious garden! We’ve never been through so much crepe paper before! But let me tell you, it looked phenomenal! Such a showpiece that would look great for a wedding or special occasion.

We’d strongly encourage you to enlist the help of some faithful friends to help put together this amount of paper peonies, as it does take some time. However, if you’re just planning on making a few, this is a simple craft with a beautiful result! Now you can enjoy peonies long after their short-lived season has passed!
