Aloha! Don’t you wish we were sipping piña coladas on an island right now?! Actually sipping piña coladas anywhere sounds good, I’m not picky. The bright florals of sunny Hawaii inspired these DIY Hawaiian floral hair pins I shared on Brit + Co. It’s the next best thing to making a floral crown which if you’ve ever tried it, is actually harder than it looks. Not these floral hair pins — they’re super easy and affordable and it’s a kid friendly craft too. A floral hair accessory you can wear all year round! Check it out on Brit + Co.
Summer is all about camping trips, picnics in the park and sitting in the sunshine! It’s my favorite season for obvious reasons (hey that rhymes!) so I made a project to go along with it. This DIY portable game board on Brit + Co is the perfect companion to your outdoorsy adventures! We LOVE board games around here and this game board doubles as a tote so you can throw your essentials in. Talk about fun and functional. Catch the details for this super simple project on Brit + Co.
Do you have basic white bed sheets that could use a little upgrade? I was inspired to give my bedroom decor a colorful makeover with a simple DIY pom pom blanket — they’re pink, they’re fluffy and they’re HUGE! I shared this tutorial on Brit + Co and the finished project is one of my favorite DIYs.
BUT I want to keep it real with you, my blog readers, sooo these pom poms started falling apart pretty quickly UGH the frustration, we were finding little yarn bits on the floor every morning! It could have been that I didn’t tie the yarn tightly enough or the type of yarn I used or that pom poms should only be on items that are used lightly. Who knows?! All that said, I really loved the way it looked so I’ll try again by adding pom poms on a throw blanket this time with stiffer yarn and I’ll definitely tie it up real tight! If you’re a brave soul and you want to try this DIY, it’s on Brit + Co.
We all love snapping pics with a phone but some of us love a good ol’ film camera too! If you have a Holga or Instax Mini, I created DIY braided camera straps with sassy sayings like Oh Crop! — it’s all on Brit + Co. You really can’t beat the natural light leaks and cool effects that come with instant or film cameras but those basic black straps they come with? UGH the worst. These straps are easy to attach so you can capture more beautiful memories like a true artisté! Check out Brit + Co for the how-to.
Flamingos are definitely IN this season from home decor to fun accessories to party decor — these pink feathered friends are all over the place! I, for one, am loving this tropical bird trend popping up everywhere so I made super simple DIY Flamingo Drink Tags for Brit + Co to get ready for all those backyard BBQs and pool parties that we’re sure to have. It just takes a few things you can find at the dollar store to make personalized drink tags for all your flamingo-loving pals. Honestly so easy! Head over to Brit + Co now to get the party started.
Is there anyone else harder to shop for than Dads?! I’m always wracking my brain trying to be real creative with my Father’s Day gift but then I settle for a case of beer and a card. I know, groundbreaking stuff! This year is different because I’ve been wanting to make a beer tasting flight tray for awhile so I shared how I did it on Brit + Co. I’m not a huge beer drinker but on a hot summer day like today, a flight of cold beer sounds good to me! Head over to Brit + Co for more on how you can make your own DIY beer tasting flight tray. Cheers!
I don’t know about you but I love going for a night time stroll in the summer when the temperatures cool off to a warm breeze. There’s something so peaceful about hanging out with friends in the backyard or patio at the end of a long day. If you’re planning any parties or backyard BBQ’s, I shared simple DIY Ombre Mason Jar Candles on Brit + Co that are perfect for lighting up the night. They’re also red, white and blue to celebrate Memorial Day and Independence Day! But hey, if you’re not an American (I’m Canadian, eh) you can make these ombre mason jar candles match your own national flag colors, it’s so easy. Check out how I made it on Brit + Co.
I may have forgotten to share this lovely DIY Memorial Day Dessert Pizza over on Brit + Co but the summer’s not over yet! Although we live in Canada, I’ll take any excuse to celebrate with a dessert pizza — so I stocked up on red, white and blue fruits to create a DIY Memorial Day Dessert Pizza and it’s all on Brit + Co. It’s super simple to make and you can swap out the “crust” for all sorts of yummy stuff like cookie dough, brownie mix or cake mix like I did. It’s sure to be a shining star at any dessert table! Check out how easy it is on Brit + Co.
Mother’s Day is coming up and this year I’m ready for it! If you’re looking for something fun to make your mom, why not try a DIY mini zen garden? It’s pink, cheerful and flamingo-filled! I know my mom likes to relax by playing games like Solitaire and Sudoku so I thought a mini zen garden would be right up her alley. You can find the decor sand at Michael’s which comes in a range of colors and then hop over to Brit + Co to see the rest. If you’ve never used a mini zen garden they’re just like adult coloring books — it has a calming and meditative effect when you want to rip someones head off. So it’s perfect for a mom! Ha, I kid! Head over to Brit + Co for the tutorial now.
With summer coming up, we’re making lists of all the fun things we want to squeeze in and trips we want to take. Have you started thinking about your summer bucket list yet? We’ll probably skip music festivals this time around but that doesn’t mean we won’t be adventuring! If you’re hitting up a music festival or not, this DIY Boho Bucket Bag is the perfect casual bag to throw on and hit the road exploring! I shared how you can make your own on Brit + Co (and you won’t believe what I used for the fabric!). It’s kind of perfect for dragging around on the beach or picnicking in the park because you don’t have to worry about keeping it clean and perfect. This bag’s easy, breezy, beautiful! Head over to Brit + Co for the full project.
