What’s prettier than petal pink? Um, nothing! The soft hue combined with a sweet personalized message are what makes this DIY Personalized Pink Leather Valet Tray so perfect. I shared the full tutorial on Martha Stewart in time for Mothers Day. Moms love a good handmade gift so whip up this cute catch-all for her. Check out all the details over on Martha Stewart now.
What do bobby pins, socks and stud earrings have in common? I lose them ALL THE TIME! So I created a DIY Wooden Stud Earring Holder for Martha Stewart to keep my earrings in one place. It’s a cute jewelry display and organizer all in one. Here’s hoping I never lose another pair of earrings again. For details on how to make your own, head over to Martha Stewart.
I don’t like to play favorites with my DIY projects… but this one might be my favorite!
While summer is in full swing, we’ve been BBQing and having friends over a lot more. But one thing we were short on was cute serving ware and cheese boards for entertaining. To fill this void, I made these DIY Mini Colorful Cheese Boards over on Sugar & Cloth. Between the mini size and pastel geo shapes, I can’t wait to add a lil’ color to our summer parties with these cheese boards! For the tutorial, head on over to Sugar & Cloth.
What’s not to love about Easter? Between the pastel colours and chocolate malted eggs, it’s all so good. In preparing for Easter festivities, I created a few fun DIYs for kids and adults and you can see them all on Martha Stewart.
First up, these DIY stamped Easter treat bags are super easy to make and adorable. Fill ‘em up with treats for party favours or an Easter egg hunt.
Next, a DIY tic tac toe game board is what you need to keep little hands busy and entertained. Are you Team Bunny or Team Carrot?
Last, these DIY typography Easter eggs are possibly my favorite thing ever. These bold and colorful beauties can spell out anything you want, like F-U-N!

Well it’s spring cleaning season! And some of us need it more than others — talking about myself here. The key to staying organized is to have a place for everything and that’s a little hard when there’s washi tapes and wooden beads lying around my studio with nowhere to go. In the spirit of spring cleaning, I created a DIY Nesting Desk Organizer on Sugar & Cloth. It’s super cute and I love that it all fits together like a jigsaw puzzle. Check out how to make your own on Sugar & Cloth now.
As a big lover of scented candles, I’ve been really getting into incense lately. Incense may seem hippie (or in my case, something my Sri Lankan parents use) but they’re just like candles — just find a scent you like! To keep ash piles off my furniture, I shared these DIY Clay Rose Marbled Incense Holders on Sugar & Cloth. This DIY is super easy to make and pretty too! Rose marbling may or may not be my new obsession. Head over to Sugar & Cloth for all the details.
Spring style is all about bringing back color and there’s a new trend in town – paint splatter! As a craft blogger, my clothes are always spotted in paint or hot glue anyway so it was kinda fun embracing this trend. Not only is it pretty but it’s also totally DIY-able. On Brit + Co, I shared the tutorial to create DIY Paint Splattered Boyfriend Jeans for yourself. When in doubt, throw some paint on it! Check out the DIY project on Brit + Co.
During the colder months, it’s easy to wear just black or grey like it’s a uniform. It seems to happen every winter that I fall into a fashion rut! So I’m always looking for fun ways to inject more color into my closet and DIY Anthropologie Drop Earrings are just what I needed! On Brit + Co, I shared how to make a DIY copycat of an expensive pair of Anthro earrings. They’re pretty wild and colorful but since they’re small earrings, it’s totally wearable. Don’t they look like something out of Iris Apfel’s closet?! Head over to see the tutorial on Brit + Co now.
My first DIY of the year is here and it’s a good one! During the colder months, I’ve been living in some form of flannel shirt and yoga pants because staying warm is my #1 priority, naturally. So for a winter DIY, I wanted to experiment with dip-dye on a flannel shirt I already owned. First, because I have lots to spare and second, because it’s an easy way to refresh an old, comfy shirt. To see how the DIY dip dye flannel shirt turned out, head over to Brit + Co. Spoiler alert: it’s pretty cute and looks like it’s store-bought. The dip-dyeing process is pretty simple and not as messy as you’d think. If you want to give it a go, it’s up on Brit + Co now.
It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year! Our Christmas tree is lit, there’s a carton of eggnog in the fridge and our tiny apartment is filled with holiday spirit. I hope you’re getting in the spirit of things too and staying toasty warm! For about three years it’s been our annual tradition to DIY our own ornaments because hello, it’s so much fun and every ornament feels more personalized and special this way. This year, I’ll show you how to make your own DIY cheesy pizza ornament for Christmas. Who doesn’t love a cheese slice?!
