I seriously want to gold foil ALL THE THINGS. It’s a problem. I hope I don’t look back at these years and have the same feelings as I do when I look at old middle school photos of myself with my over-plucked eyebrows and massive braces (you know, the kind of feeling when you wonder why no one stepped in to save you from yourself). In this instance it may be too late, because now I’ve gone and created DIY faux brass drawer fronts on all of our desk drawers.

I can’t help it, especially since I discovered this new metallic gold foil that’s only feeding my habit because a) it’s only $10, and B) because you now get a giant roll of it that’s actually big enough to cover lots of things (which previously did not exist in my world). I hope you guys have prepared yourselves for gold madness around here…

Well it was a doozy of a weekend over here, you guys! Between our Easter styled get together and the DIY home decor workshop, I think I’ve had enough cake, pie, nutella sandwiches, and pendant light wiring to last me a few months. Good news is those were mostly positives minus the fact that I need to take up working out now apparently, but it was great for Brittni and I to get to meet all of you that attended!

Now let’s get down to business recapping the excitement, and by that I mean pictures of cupcakes, yeah?…

A Simple Easter Gathering & DIY Leather Chargers

I’m all about holidays, but to be totally honest, I don’t actually decorate too much for any of them just because it can be a large undertaking for such a short amount of time. Instead, I really love the idea of creating small elements with a holiday flair that you can use time and time again, but still make the space yours. To give you an idea of how to create a modern, gender neutral atmosphere for some upcoming get togethers, Brittni and I teamed up with Fossil to share our take on a simple Easter gathering & DIY leather chargers (as just one of the many handmade elements!) alongside some of our Houston friends.

In lieu of traditional Easter items, we opted to add in little nods here and there with ombre egg macarons, unexpected dip dyed egg colors as table accents, simple DIY bunny tail drink stirrers, and gummy fried eggs as party favors. In case Easter isn’t your thing, we have plenty of other ideas for your too, with spiked grapefruit lemonade cocktails, DIY leather chargers, DIY grid print runner, and LOTS of other goodies, cause you know, we always have to have more than one DIY around here!

DIY Pom Pom Wall Hang

I’ve wanted one of the woven wall hangs that are popping up everywhere forever, but the honest truth is I can’t really swing purchasing wall art in that price range at the moment. I’m also 120% positive that I don’t have the attention span for learning how to weave one, so I decided to make my own version of a wooly (that’s a technical word right?) wall piece myself with this DIY pom pom wall hang.

Lucky for me I happen to be dating a guy that loves to help, and he reallllly loves to make pom poms (it’s true, he says it’s relaxing), so this turned out to be a not-so-time consuming project, but you can also purchase pre made poms on Etsy too! While you’re saving yourself all kinds of pom pom making time you can now be pondering what Jared is going to look like in thirty years with knitting gear in hand, cause clearly that’s where he’s headed (love you, babe!)…
