DIY circle wheel pillow

I’ve been reminiscing on my last trip to Denmark and going through all of the goodies I collected while abroad. Are there a lot? Yes. Too many? Maybe. I can’t help myself! The city is a natural shopping dream. On my last day I spotted an adorable circle wheel pillow case that had to come with me. But I wanted more of them and in all different colors, SO we came up with a DIY version that you can do yourself and I love how it turned out!

The pillow is made up of a series of very simple shapes that, once pieced out, piece back together easily! 10 triangles, 2 circles, a little bit of time at the sewing machine, and voilà, you’ve got yourself the sweetest little pillow that’s bound to brighten up your couch and your day! Read on →

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?!
