DIY Pom Pom Panama Hat

Psst…this post contains affiliate links. I hardly need an excuse to slap some pom poms on anything in sight (hello pom pom beach bag and pom pom swim coverup) but the outrageous price tags on some of this season’s embellished hats was a call to action. After a few minutes of rummaging around in my closet, I had everything I…

DIY Tassel Bracelets

My DIY projects are more like CBA (click-buy-assemble) projects, which I think makes them all the better because anyone can make them and it proves what ridiculous prices we pay for some things. I’m really into tassels (don’t worry, I still have a soft spot in my heart for pom poms) and have been eying all the tassel jewelry but…

Tiny Succulents in Tiny Baskets

I know succulents have become a bit cliché since they’ve overtaken Pinterest, but I’ve always loved them. I didn’t know what they were called at the time, but my grandma had hen and chicks growing on the rocks and bricks that lined her garden and I was fascinated by them.

Armed with a pile of neon floss, I …sat there for an hour and struggle with my design – random? stripes? chevron? The possibilities are endless! Then I told myself to chill…

Tipsy Wreath Making

I got together with two especially crafty and Pinterest addicted coworkers this weekend for the First Annual Tipsy Wreath Making Party. I spotted this wreath from Design Sponge and thought sure – why not pick the most labor intensive wreath I can find for my first time ever making a wreath. And why not throw in sharp pins and alcohol…
