DIY // Fruit koozies


DIY fruit koozies | DIY fruit koozies |

And for my last fruit DIY trick, I introduce you to these fruit koozies! Bet you didn’t see that one coming did you? Yeah, neither did I, but sometimes you just roll with koozie punches when they scream to be made into fruit, you know? You can see all of the juicy (get it?) details over on Julep today!

In other news, while everyone is going back to school shopping I’m rooting around for holiday inspired things for fall and Christmas shoots. You’d be amazed how difficult it is to come by this time of year unless you’re hitting up Hobby Lobby’s Christmas in July section like a maniac. All of this to say be nice to the girl in front of you in line buying only mint green and red things during tax free weekend this week! I’ll catch you tomorrow with another summery treat!

DIY // Edible confetti


DIY edible confetti | edible-confetti-167-eight

I can’t think of one get together that isn’t made better with confetti, but especially edible confetti. I’m not talking about the cheesy grocery store sprinkles, I’m talking gold, mint, peach, and any other colors you can dream up because that’s exactly what you’re going to be making after this DIY edible confetti tutorial. I think it might be my newest addiction.

I mean, the possibilities here are endless. Shapes, colors, sizes, you name it. It’s practically as exciting as deciding on ice cream at Disney World, which is really saying something. Here’s the how-to and a few tips on making your own…

DIY // Hanging bundt cake pan planters

Well you guys, the studio is finally coming together one little corner at a time! I’m super relieved since just last week it looked like it didn’t know what it wanted to be, and today it looks like minty happiness now that my new Smeg arrived (please see here for a quick vid accurately describing my feelings over it).

Clearly after kissing and hugging your new mini fridge, the next step is to decorate around it, which is exactly what I did with these DIY hanging bundt cake pan planters. I wanted to have something that was kitchen-esque to make it feel like a little mini lunch and snack station since the studio doesn’t actually have a kitchen area.

Of course you can use these anywhere and they don’t actually have to be hanging, but it’s a super inexpensive project to make and you can find amazing patterns and shapes of bundt cake pans at just about any flea market or thrift store…

DIY // 6 Must-try fruit inspired projects and a life crisis update


6 must-try fruit DIY's |

Well ladies and gentlemen, I’ve reached a point where my unhealthy death grip on my computer has come to a head. Last night it took a dive for the worse and decided to completely shutdown, so alas, I have to postpone my DIY post for today and instead make a medical emergency trip to the Apple store and beg them to do overnight reviving on my baby. Which leads me to my next point: fruit.

Clearly the two go hand-in-hand, and since I can’t bring my own project to the table today and I’m bowing out of the fruit game with my last fruit inspired project on Julep next week, I decided I’d my an ode to my favorites from the summer. Here we go-

DIY crochet tutti frutti potholders by Wink for Tutsplus // DIY pom pom fruit by Mr. Printables // DIY fruit macarons by Sugar & Cloth // DIY watermelon donuts by Paper & Stitch // DIY fruit slice umbrellas by Studio DIY  // DIY fruity print zipper purses by The Lovely Drawer 

Lastly, this crazy awesome fruit grill made an appearance on the list too, but I didn’t want to scare anyone away too quickly. Hope you all have a great weekend! xo
