DIY Cupcake Liner Flowers

DIY Cupcake Liner Flowers

Today’s DIY tutorial revisits one of my favorite craft techniques, making the prettiest paper flowers from good ol’ inexpensive paper cupcake liners. Making these flowers is about as easy as it gets, but the end result is pretty gorgeous, even if I do say so myself. You can make them just about any color you can imagine (or any color that comes in a spray paint can anyway) and then use them as place cards, a cake topper or string them …

(Can’t stop, won’t stop, guys. The love affair is real.) Needless to say, me and my sweet tooth were more than happy to jump on board when they asked me to share a little …

DIY Cheesecloth Ghost Cake Toppers

I will be the first to admit that there are a million different variations of this project floating around out there, but that’s also kind of why I love these little ghosts. We made a version of these every year with my mom when we were kids, sometimes out of cheesecloth and kitchen twine like these, or other times out of tissues and thread. Basically, whatever we had on hand. We’d hang them from doorways or the chandelier in the …

It’s no big secret that I am a big fan of a summer picnic. I’ve made that pretty clear over the years. Sometimes though, picnics can feel like a lot of work! Preparing food, packing everything up, lugging it to the park or the beach. There are definitely times when they almost feel like more effort than it’s worth. (The operative word …

DIY Mini Valentine’s Day Bouquets

As promised, we’re officially talking about Valentine’s Day this week!
