It’s Wednesday and totally that time of the week to treat yo self! Or at the very least, time to start planning what you’re going to spend Friday’s paycheck on. Because trust me, after seeing these shops that are killing it with great products you’ll want to plan wisely. If you’re looking to support makers and get something awesome, check out these recent Etsy finds I am absolutely crushing on:
Happy September y’all! How crazy is that?! What better way to celebrate the new month than with the first challenge for the Michaels Makers program– diy pumpkins! And what is a celebration without a little confetti? Here’s how:
I purchased my confetti, but you can easily make your own using tissue paper. My pumpkin is from Michaels.com. If you aren’t into white, they have a variety of other colors and shapes. You can even get a half pumpkin!
So this tutorial is easy peasy. Apply a thin layer of mod podge, working only 4 inches at a time, and then lay down your confetti. Smooth over with another thin layer of mod podge. Keep going until your pumpkin is covered then let dry!
Who says Mondays, or tissue boxes for that matter, have to be dull? Certainly not me! After looking at an ugly and brown tissue box on my desk for a few weeks, I decided that is was about time to mix things up a bit and bust out the sparkle. And of course, what better way to do that than with pink spray paint and rhinestones?!
If you use a wooden box, you wont have to worry about the paint chipping off (could happen with the wrong plastic tissue box). You can also use tacky glue here if you don’t have E-6000.
So this tutorial could not be any easier. Paint your box, let dry. Glue on rhinestones and let dry. Just be sure to let each side dry a bit before moving on otherwise your rhinestones may move (if the glue isn’t dry, they could slide down the box).
Slide over a tissue box, and boom, you’re done! Now, I realize that most of you will not want a rhinestone covered tissue box in your home, but I think it makes a fun addition to any office. You can also do a toned down version of this if you were looking to work it into your everyday decor.
Happy Fridayyyy! So this week I stood in line for 30 minutes to get a cruffin only to realize they were all sold out by the time I got to the counter. What’s a cruffin you ask? A crossiant muffin. Seriously. Read up on them here. The good news is that I still ended up getting a delicious ass donut, which is proof that even though things don’t always go the way you want, there’s always something better right around the corner. End pastry related life lesson. Now time for the fun– weekend links!
PS- Yesterday I was on set for a section of Tiffany Han’s Creativelive class on social media sanity (chattin’ about Instagram, of course). If you missed the broadcast, you can get the class here which will be on sale until Saturday!
