03.15.16 - DIY Spring / Easter / St Patty's Decor

Randomly started making some little decorations for the upcoming holidays and went with a pastel green and pink theme to cover St. Patty's Day, Spring and Easter all at once. I love versatile decor like pumpkins - they can last you through Halloween, Fall & Thanksgiving! I made little potted pinwheels - and they were super easy and inexpensive to make.

110915 - DIY Tassle Garland

I actually got this idea from HGTV:
I'm sure this is something everyone and their mothers have already seen since it has been re-pinned a gajillion times, but I wanted to test it out myself to see how easy/do-able it was. Well, I can tell you, this is one of the easiest DIY party decorations you can possibly do! The best part of it is that one tissue paper will produce 4 tassles!

I only changed it up a bit by using electrical tape instead of a hot glue gun. If you have washi tape, that would be an awesome possum alternative as well since it serves the same purpose and adds a touch of cuteness.

Time: 30 minutes
Difficulty: Medium (try not to rip the tissue!)
Cost: $3

x1 Tissue Paper (For wrapping, not snot)
x1 Washi Tape or Hot Glue Gun
x1 Twine / String


11.09.15 - Hearting the Skip Hop Panda Backpack!

This is my most recent heartable. I can't even tell you how happy looking at this little backpack makes me. It's sad and embarrassing really, but who cares! It's so darn cuuuuute I could puke rainbows. This super functional backpack is made of a sturdy, BPA-free material and cute to boot! Even the zippers are teensy bamboos! It's the perfect size for toddlers and even comes with an adjustable bottle holder. You can buy this here.

Cost: $20
