Cinco de Mayo Paper Wedding Bouquet

Cinco de Mayo Wedding Bouquet

If you haven’t heard, we’re creating a new paper wedding bouquet every month for all you brides to be out there! We kept it clean and simple last month with a white stunner that would work for so many different styles. This month’s bouquet is far more colorful and perfect for a more casual, lively gathering! We’re calling it our Cinco de Mayo Paper Wedding Bouquet! Poppies, daffodils, tulips, and a few kumquats come together to create a bright and springy bouquet. We’ve provided templates and step-by-step instructions so you can recreate this lush beauty for your next event! It looks lovely in a vase as well!

Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape

Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape

April Showers bring May flowers… so I guess you can say we’re jumping the gun a little bit over here! This Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape is the perfect way to welcome in Spring! It also involves two of our favorite things: rainbows and flowers. We created layered 2-D paper flowers in different shades of pink, orange, yellow, blue, and purple to create a rainbow of flowers down the center of the table. Paper, wire, and floral foam and then only materials you need to make this stunner. It would be perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch, a spring bridal or baby shower, or a rainbow themed birthday party!Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape

Denim Jacket Quilted Applique

Denim Jacket Quilted AppliqueLately, I’ve been so inspired by traditional quilting patterns. Take a look at our Geometric Sticky Note mural and our Tumbling Block Bias Tape Weaving to see what I mean! Put in the right color palettes, the patterns seem so fresh and interesting! I’ve been itching to buy some new pieces to refresh my wardrobe, but have also felt the need to be a bit more economical when it comes to clothing. Second-hand shopping and thrifting are the perfect solutions! So combining these two motives, this Denim Jacket Quilted Applique was born! We put our own spin on a log-cabin pattern to create a mini quilt of sorts in a muted rainbow spectrum. Sewn to the back of a thrifted denim jacket with a simple zig-zag stitch, this is a project that even the most amateur seamstress can handle!

DIY Sticky Note Mural

DIY Sticky Note MuralWe played around with sticky notes years ago (6 years ago to be exact!), but we revisited the medium in a new and more refined way. The idea of cheap, recyclable, yet impactful decor really resonates with us (remember our paper chain wall hanging!). I’m constantly wanting to change things up with my home decor, and this makes it easy! This DIY Sticky Note Mural was inspired by traditional quilt patterns. There are so many quilt pattern variations from classic to modern. A basic geometric pattern in a fun palette is the perfect use for sticky notes! Also, who knew that sticky notes come in the most beautiful colors? This project is a great way to fill an empty wall with plenty of color and pattern without spending a ton a money. In fact, this project will cost you less than $5!

Time to whip out Grandma’s quilts for a little inspiration!

DIY Tromp L’oeil Dress

Sometimes I want to live the life of the rich and famous and just go out a spend all my money on Mara Hoffman dresses, Loeffler Randal shoes, and vintage Chanel bags. Sometimes is actually a lot of times. Instead, I’ll just stick with Asos dresses that we jazz up with painted designer accessories! All my problems are solved! This DIY Tromp L’oeil Dress was inspired by the classic art technique that uses realistic imagery to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions. So basically, when someone sees you, they’ll think you have dozens of Chanel bags! You can pick any article of clothing that needs a refresher and add a Tromp L’oeil accessory! Think strings of pearls, a collar and button band, or a crossbody bag. It’s a quirky way to personalize your pieces.DIY Tromp L'oeil Dress
