Rainbow Easter Egg Wreath

Rainbow Easter Egg Wreath

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 😉

DIY Rainbow Woven Tote

DIY Rainbow Woven Tote

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!

DIY Painted Rainbow Sun Hat

DIY Rainbow Painted Sun Hat

The sun is starting to shine and it’s making me wonder why I even tolerate winter. And then I remember my obsession with tights… Nevertheless, this California-bred girl loves the warm weather! I’ve never quite jumped on the tanning bandwagon, perhaps due to disappointment with sunless tanning lotions. Or maybe it’s because of an abundance of adorable swimsuit coverups and sunhats. It’s hard to find the perfect hat for the summer, so we took matters into our own hands and made our own! The power of craft! This DIY Painted Rainbow Sun hat is a perfect balance. It’s a classic rattan, wide-brim hat, and did we mention it’s from Ikea? But underneath, there’s a peekaboo rainbow! Surprise surprise! It’s super simple and we can assure you you’ll get plenty of compliments. Hat’s off to you!
