Single cupcake stand

I made a cupcake stand out of candlestick holders for Brooklyn Bride and decided to try it with a different flavor so I used shocking pink spray paint. Shocked are you? It’s so easy! And guess who took the photos? ME! I got a 50mm lens for my birthday and my life has officially changed for the better. Thank you mom! I still have A LOT to learn so please be patient.
And here’s the wedding version over at Brooklyn Bride.

For another cupcake stand idea check out this other one I made out of board.

Photobooth oversized engagement ring props

I was asked to do another DIY for the Etsy blog and I LOVE how it turned out. You know my love of all things oversized so it was natural that I choose something in that category. I’ve always been a bit scared of origami for some reason. Maybe because it looks so precise and exact? And I’m totally not always that. Anywhoo, this origami diamond was easy and really makes a statement, doncha think? I’ll include pictures here but no text so for complete instructions go to the Etsy blog.

Photography by Hilda Grahnat

And a HUGE thank you to Heidi from I’m with Leia who at the last minute raced (with her darling little one) over to pose as a model in terrific yellow. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

DIY: Kissing clothespin caketopper

Check out the my first DIY for Brooklyn Bride. So easy and simple. I thought it’d be nice as a caketopper or on favor bags. For the full story go here. Have you checked out my decorating tips? If you like gold, you’ll love these ideas. And if you want something easy and powerful, check out this tip. I love writing for a wedding blog. It gives me the chance to think all my favorite things: fashion, DIYs, decor, food. Yes, it’s a perfect fit. And a huge thank you to Liv Colliander for stepping in to photograph. I haven’t found too many people around town who photograph products and she was up for the challenge. Speaking of, is there anyone in the Copenhagen area who wants to collaborate? Maybe some fun projects or photographing?

DIY: Speech bubbles

I hope you had a great weekend remembering 9/11 and those who were affected. There was so much goodness coming out from something so bad.

So, a few weeks ago, a Ukrainian friend from my Danish class asked me to teach her how to make the speech bubbles for her upcoming wedding. My sister had made the two below and I was thrilled with the spice they added to our photography session with Ali. We wrote “I love you” and “I love you more” in Danish and English respectively and she wanted hers in Russian and Danish, since she too married a Danish man.
Materials:
Primed canvas
Cardboard
X-acto knife
Glue gun
Scissors
Sharpie
3 acrylic paints of your choice for background and lettering
Paintbrush
Pencil
Flat polyester filling
Fabric for backing (optional)
1. With a Sharpie, create the outline of the speech bubble you want to create on a large piece of cardboard.
2. Cut out the shape with the x-acto knife.
3. Lay the flat polyester filling on top of the cardboard as padding and hot glue it down. I couldn’t find it here so I used squares and laid them like tiles, then cut around.
4. Lay the bubbles on the canvas face down and cut around it leaving 1″ in excess
5.  Using scissors, cut slits into the canvas every couple of inches to create the circular shape
6. Glue gun the canvas slits to the back of the cardboard.
7. With the color of your choice, paint the canvas.
8. When it’s done drying, write your phrase with a pencil then paint it with a contrasting color.
9. (optional)Glue gun a fun fabric to the back side of the bubble. This won’t be seen in the pictures. Just a nice detail.
10. Voilà!

royal wedding souvenirs. better late than never!

Dear readers, I’m so pleased to announce a little project that Cramer and I, with support from our British counterpart, have whipped up in a few short weeks. Although we’re a bit late entering the game, we have arrived with GUSTO to present our line of souvenirs celebrating the wedding on Prince William and Kate Middleton later this month.
Now, to all of you who have known me since I was a wee little one, this will come as no surprise as you and I both know that I was going to marry Prince William. After a couple of trips to England with no royal invitation to meet HRH, I knew it was time to MOVE ON. So, I met and married my Danish prince and William, clearly heartbroken, finally decided to move on too and propose to his gf of 10 years. About time, buddy! And I give my full support. We have come up with tote bags, keychains, mugs, commemorative plates all celebrating the wedding of the year. Check it all out now on out Etsy shop and place your pre-order. Our products will be ready any day now so now’s your chance! Not only that, but Paul and I will be in London the weekend of the royal wedding selling souvenirs with our dear friends on PORTOBELLO ROAD so come and visit and tell your friends! We can’t wait to be there with the masses in our little booth exploiting this wedding! I’ll be the one in the mock wedding dress.

Go check out the full line at The House That Lars Built Etsy shop.
