3 DIY Baby Swaddle ideas with Delta Faucet

In honor of the recent arrival of Royal Baby Archie, baby gifts have been on the brain.  Watching Meghan become a mother reminds me of my own time with a newborn. Baby was SO little and I loved swaddling that tiny baby in my arms.  Mary gave me the sweetest swaddles when baby was born and I used them all the time. With this in mind, we created three DIY ways to add a little pizazz to basic swaddles to give to the new moms in your life. We added a fancy embroidery stitch to one, a ribbon trim border to the other, and finished with a hand dyed swaddle with an embroidered monogram. PLUS they all make the best wrapping paper for a sweet baby gift.

DIY paper peony

If you’ve been following along on Instastories, you’ve seen the updates I’ve been giving about my garden peonies. They are blooming slowly and not quite in peak season quite yet so we took matters into our own hands and made this gorgeous DIY paper peony bouquet. You can make just one on its own or many for a full bouquet. Think bridal bouquet or bridesmaid. How beautiful would it be?!

DIY tropical paper leaf table runner

Last week I had the opportunity to host a workshop event at Anthropologie in Salt Lake City where I showed people how to style an outdoor soiree party for the summer months using some of their new products. It was the perfect combo of me being a big ‘ole fan of Anthro and my local peeps at the SLC location and my immense love of dinnerware. To go with the tropical themed collection, our team came up with three little custom projects that you can add to go with it that we’ll be sharing this week, starting with this paper leaf table runner inspired by their collection. It’s SO easy and cheap and adds a lot of pop!

Paper Face Boxes with Astrobrights and giveaway!

Rainbow box

We’ve been working with Astrobrights paper for 4 years now (it all started with our popular paper plants project!) and we are thrilled to continue our partnership by celebrating their 50th birthday in May! We’re kicking off a month-long celebration where every day a new artist will share a project in one of Astrobrights’ iconic colors. Lucky us gets to do ALL THE COLORS of the rainbow. As if we could choose just one!

I’ve had this idea floating in my head for a number of months and an important birthday seemed like the perfect time to make it happen. I like to drop off little goodies to friends every month and I knew I wanted a favor box that was full of personality and yet super simple. Enter, face boxes. How pleasantly surprising would it be to see a smiley face sitting on your doorstep?! And then a smiley face in every single shade of the rainbow? There is nothing cuter.

Let’s get making!

DIY rainbow pom

St. Patrick’s Day means many things but around here it means EVEN MORE RAINBOWS than normal–and we already live in a rainbow-filled world. We’ve been spotting lots of motif-themed poms and thought it would be fun to try it out our own DIY rainbow pom. It’s just like normal pom-making but with some layering and cutting involved. It’s much simpler than you might expect! We added on some solid colored poms to create a tassel. Together they’d be great to hang on a bag to get your festive green in.
