DIY Charm bracelet garland

DIY Charm bracelet garland

by Kathleen Ballos

If there’s one thing I love making, it’s a fun garland. For today’s project, I made a giant DIY charm bracelet garland inspired, of course, by vintage charm bracelets! I love the idea of making this to decorate for a DIY necklace or bracelet making party, or even as permanent décor in a girl’s bedroom. Shop around your craft or dollar store for fun shapes to turn into the jumbo charms–coming up with cute ideas is half the fun! Keep reading for the full instructions. Read on →

DIY daisy string lights

DIY paper daisy string light tutorial

You guys LOVED the DIY paper daisy backdrop and the DIY decorative string lights we did using Bright Lab lights. I haven’t been able to get either out of my head so we combined the two and created some daisy Bright Lab lights. I LOVE how they turned out! So simple yet bright and cheery. I love that you can turn them on for a party or as a night light in a child’s room.

It’s so simple to make, especially if you have a craft cutter machine, and we’re providing the PDFs and SVGs for you. It’s just two steps!
