DIY Balloon Garden

Spring blossoms are a huge source of inspiration here at Lars, especially when my garden is overflowing with blooms! Is there anything better than a space filled with fresh blossoms? No sir, there’s not. Unfortunately, that can cost a pretty peony… I mean penny. But, that wasn’t going to stop us from creating a magical garden indoors. Consequently, we turned to one of our favorite mediums: Balloons! As a result, we created a DIY Balloon Garden! (and pssst: The Wall Street Journal just caught onto the balloon moment!)

Simple, eye-catching, cheap, and whimsical, it makes the perfect backdrop for a party or shower. It’s easy to create and just as easy to take down. All you need is an assortment of skinny balloons, commonly used to create balloon animals. We were pretty heavy handed when it came to the number of balloon flowers, but go big or go home, right?!  At the end of the gathering, let everyone take one or a bunch home!

Pom Pom Your Wardrobe

Pom Pom Your Wardrobe

I used to think pom poms were meant strictly for craft projects. That was until last year and all of a sudden pom poms were popping up everywhere! Gone were the googley eyes and craft sticks that had traditionally adorned pom poms, and in replace were chic handbags and sandals. The trend is still holding strong and we couldn’t be happier about it! But, let’s be real for a minute, who knows how long the pom pom trend will last? We can’t very well attach pom poms to every item of our clothing just to have to get rid of them the next season when they’re back to being a craft supply. But, don’t worry, we have your solution! We decided to glue magnets to the back of the pom poms so that you could easily pom pom your wardrobe without permanently altering your clothes! From skirts to shirts to shoes, the sky is the limit! We chose 4 ways to add pom poms to our wardrobe. So wear those pom poms with pride! As soon as you tire of the trend, remove the magnets and add them to your craft storage 🙂

Crepe Paper Fringe Necklace

Crepe Paper fringe necklace

You know the feeling when you find the perfect shirt and you feel like you need it in all the colors? Or the perfect pair of jeans so you buy 3 different washes in the same style? That’s how I feel about this necklace. I’m head over heals for this crepe paper fringe necklace! It’s a little bit bohemian, a little bit victorian, and the perfect accessory to add a bit of color to an outfit. We made the green one thinking it would be the perfect way to add a touch of green to your wardrobe for St. Patrick’s day. I love the way it looks against the dark blue dress. It’s a little moody and understated. But then I had another idea…Crepe Paper fringe necklace

We decided to take it a step further and do a whole rainbow spectrum! I can’t help my affinity for rainbows, I think it’s part of my genetic makeup… but I’m not mad about it! The rainbow gave the necklace a completely different look! The way it pops against the graphic black and white window pane shirt is too good. So whether you go for monochromatic, rainbow, or both(!) you’ll be sure to make a statement!

3 last minute DIY costumes from your craft closet

DIY unicorn costume

I think about what I’m going to wear for Halloween nearly every single day of the year. Sadly, I’m not joking. BUT, when it comes down to actually carrying out my plans, I’m usually so burned out that I end up doing something quick and easy if I do anything at all. Well, this Halloween season, we’ve teamed up with Bath and Body Works over the next three weeks to create 7 costumes inspired by their large variety of sweet smelling fragrance mists. Today we’re sharing 3 last minute costumes you can make from your craft closets, which is good for all of you who don’t want to put that much time or money into your costumes. Think tissue paper, paper plates, and drinking straws, cardboard, balloons, paint, batting. All cheap and easy yet have so much impact. In fact, I wore the unicorn costume to my first costume of the season and the kids loved it! Also on the list: hippies…diy-hippy-costume-from-craft-closet-34…and an all pink Marie Antoinette.DIY Marie Antoinette Halloween costume Learn how to make the costumes and see what we were inspired by.

This week

Rainbow Man in Santa Fe

Thank you to everyone who voted for my birthday trip destination. I listened! And you had so many good tips. Thank you! If you follow along on Instagram or Snapchat you are well aware of where I ended up…Santa Fe!

Santa Fe hadn’t really been on my radar until the last year or so when I heard amazing things from my friend, Meta,  who regularly visits because her husband is an artist whose work is shown there. And she wasn’t kidding. Santa Fe is it’s own world of magic. SO many art galleries, SO many artists who have created their own worlds. Georgia O’Keefe, Alexander Girard, Tinkertown, MEOW WOLF! Gah! You guys! If you have any ounce of artistic loving, you’re in for a treat. We didn’t have the best food experience but some of the recommended places were closed for the week. Here’s a tip: if you like chilis, you’re in for a treat. If you don’t (like me or my sister), you’re outta luck.

I took my sister on the trip because we share the same birthday trip and she’s always loved the idea of going to Santa Fe. Perhaps because of Newsies? We are that generation. And yes, we sang the song the whole entire time. We attempted to watch it, but as our birthdays indicated, we are another year older, and fell asleep promptly.

I’ll be sharing more tips on Santa Fe soon! But in the mean time, here are some fun links for the weekend:

Happy weekend!
