Nothing says holidays like desserts, and this pretty little dessert setup just screams for it’s own spot at Easter brunch, doesn’t it?! I’ve been bursting at the seems trying not to share Kimberly Chau’s beautiful photos of the all of the loveliness, especially the goodies that Buttercup brought to life from my slightly out of control sweet tooth rambling. But alas, here it is, and I love how it turned out!
Now for the dirty details, and win $200 to Minted to style your very own Easter dessert table…
Okay yes, technically this is bunny themed since Easter is the next major thing on the calendar, but you can make this DIY for any occasion. Even better, you can probably make this entire project with things you already have! That’s right, all this project consists of is a regular house bowl, dinner plate, and a plastic figurine with a little spray paint on it!
I think this DIY figurine cake dome would be super cute with a heart or piece of cake on top, don’t you? I’d love to see what you all make so be sure to share! Here’s how to make your own-
- Dinner plate
- House bowl (preferably flat bottomed)
- E-6000 or super glue
- Spray paint
- Plastic figurine (optional)
- Cookies (not optional)
Try to use a plate that already matches the color scheme, which in this case is white, so that you don’t have to paint it so that it still remains food and dishwasher safe.
For the top dome, spray paint a regular house bowl the color of your choice, and let it dry completely.
Next, glue your figurine to the top and let it set. The top will now only be able to be wiped clean with a damp, sanitizing rag but the bottom can still be run through the dishwasher like normal.
Toss in a few cookies, tarts, or the dessert of your choice, and you’re all set for a unique serving item for the holidays!
As promised, I’ve put together the tutorial for the geometric floral pendants from our Palm Springs inspired tablescape that I shared with you last week! The project is actually much simpler than the finished product appears. I’ll go ahead and admit that it does take quite a while to finish them (about and hour and a half to two hours for the large pendant), but the whimsical and romantic look that they have when the sun is going down is totally worth it!
You can make as many or as few as you’d like to fill the perfect space, and the smaller the pendants the quicker they are to make. The larger one from our shoot was 12 inches on all sides, and the smaller one was six if that gives you any idea. Depending on how much you friends love you, I think these would be so perfect for DIY’ing for a wedding, don’t you?!
- 24 Wooden skewers (12 in for the large and 6 in. for the smaller square)
- Floral tape
- Floral wire
- Wire cutters
- Floral sheers
- Hot glue and glue gun
- Fishing wire
- Florals (these are c/o Flower Muse)
In case the pom pom leather luggage tags were a bit too girly for you, we have a whole other type of tag to float your boat: DIY leather bar and drink tags! It’s a similar concept, but a whole new aesthetic that the guys in your family won’t cringe from, which is perfect for upcoming Spring evenings.
