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!

If you haven’t heard, rainbows are trending like never before, especially in the fashion world! The Spring 2018 runways were full of technicolor spectrums that left us longing for more. Color is being embraced and no one wants to leave anyone out. If you’re a long time follower of Lars, you know full well how passionate we are about color and rainbow. I started the #CraftTheRainbow hashtag back in 2014, along with my #DressTheRainbow adventures (take a look here and here). So you can imagine how thrilled I am to see rainbows having their moment in the sun. If you’re still hesitant to jump on the bandwagon, allow Vogue, Harper’s Baazar, and The Zoe Report to help convince you.
Lately, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect rainbow outfit to wear to the launch party for Craft the Rainbow! (Have you bought your copy yet?) There are SO many to-die-for options out there, I decided I needed to get some outside opinions. I’ve gathered up my Favorite Rainbow Fashion Picks in hopes that you’ll steer me in the right direction. I’d love to know your thoughts, so leave me your opinion or links to any dreamy rainbow clothing in the comments! Let’s all Dress the Rainbow!
Take a look at all the options and please give me your opinion-I’d love your thoughts!
Mark your calendars! Easter is April 1st this year. It’s much earlier than usual which means we all need to stock up on Cadbury Eggs ASAP. Jelly beans and chocolate eggs aside, I love Easter! To me, it marks the official start of Spring, I’m just hoping the weather doesn’t miss the memo. This year we’re decorating with this Rainbow Easter Egg Wreath! We skipped the dying for this project to eliminate the mess and allow the wreath to keep for years to come. Naturally dyed eggs have such pretty texture. We tried to recreate that look with paper. We textured a rainbow of crepe papers using bleach and paint to achieve the desired effect. With the addition of some paper leaf boughs, this is a step above your average Easter wreath! Brighten up your dreary winter days with this Rainbow Easter Egg Wreath and a handful of jelly beans 😉

Has anyone else been daydreaming over resort collections? Maybe anxiously anticipating the release of spring collections? Guilty. Loeffler Randal, in particular, has caught my fancy with their overload of ricrac and rainbows! They are speaking our language! So we’re taking a page from their book with this DIY Rainbow Ricrac Clutch! But that’s not all: this clutch is made from a placemat. Yep, a placemat. In other words, not only will this clutch brighten up your wardrobe, it will cost you less than $10! We’re sold. Every day is worthy of a rainbow so go ahead and make this Rainbow Ricrac Placemat Clutch and daydream of warmer days ahead!
Summer is here, which means you’re heading to the beach, the pool, the farmer’s market! Jetting off on summer vacations left and right! If only life could always be summer, right? Anyways, with all the fun excursions I know you’ll be taking, you’ll need a cute tote to carry your sunglasses, sunscreen, and summer reading materials. Woven tote bags scream summer and we fell in love with this circular design by Loom & Field, whose store is chalk-full of beautiful things! We decided to give it a Lars touch so we painted on a rainbow, of course as inspired by this one from Vanessa Seward. This DIY painted woven tote will become your go-to bag for the summer. Bonus points if you buy the matching shoes and earrings because there is no such thing as too much rainbow!
