Rainbow Care Package

Rainbow Care package

We all have that friend that manages to say the right thing at the right time, gives the perfect gifts, and calls right when you need to chat. I want to be that person! So I’m taking some inspiration from my all time favorite childhood icon: Care Bears! You can probably guess that Cheer Bear is my favorite on account of our mutual love of rainbows. Cheer Bear is all about joy, optimism, and happiness, things we all could use a bit more of in our lives. So we’re teaming up with Care Bears to give away a care package chock-full of rainbow goodies, including Cheer Bear and our book Craft the Rainbow. So whether you need some cheering up or have a friend in mind, enter the giveaway for a chance to win! Read on →

How to plant a Rainbow Container Garden

Rainbow Container Garden

We selected our current apartment while we were still living in Denmark. Because we hadn’t seen it in person before we moved in, we didn’t quite know what we had to work with. A garden wasn’t necessarily on my list of things I “had to have”, but I was so pleasantly surprised to find that I had a little bit of garden to work with once I got here. Our landlords do a phenomenal job at keeping it up, but they said I could add in some of my own flower selections. That was 5 years ago. I have since been bit by the gardening bug and consider it one of my most (and few!) hobbies that I have outside of work.

This year I wanted to make it more colorful than years past and in honor of Craft the Rainbow our new book and this little board book that I read to Jasper nearly every day (here) , I created a rainbow container garden for the front porch. I only added them in a couple of weeks ago so they haven’t had time to flourish yet, but I thought I’d post about it so you can get started to and then we can watch them grow together and keep each other updated.

Sometimes you just need a bright spot to rest your eyes and lift your spirits. Whether it’s a workspace or a corner of your house that needs cheering up this DIY Tissue Paper Rainbow is just the ticket! We used a classic technique you might have used in grade school. All you’ll need are some tissue paper squares, a pencil, and some glue. This is one of those crafts appropriate for all ages and can be easily customized to suit your tastes. You can rest it on a shelf, mount it to the wall, or even frame it with a shadow box! P.S we used this technique in Craft the Rainbow to create something pretty incredible if I do say so myself, so make sure to check it out!

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

My Favorite Rainbow Fashion Picks

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.
