Hello! Erin here with a DIY project perfect for back-to-school. The start of a new academic year is synonymous (in my mind anyway!) with new school supplies. Stocking up on the materials called for by each syllabi, pretty pens, pencils, and of course, every cute pouch and organizer, which makes perfect timing for this hexagonal DIY desktop organizer.
This modern desk organizer has tons of room for supplies and an angled opening that lends a sculptural element to any desktop! Besides, if you share my love for supplies, why not create a pretty way to keep your desk organized and the cute things on display all at the same time?!…

I’m not even kidding when I tell you that I bought this cake carrier literally over a year ago with every intention of giving it a DIY facelift, but I could never quite decide what to do to it until last week. I’m actually super impressed with myself that I could even still find all of the pieces after a studio move and another year’s worth of hoarding other projects, but alas, it has survived and is now a much cuter DIY retro cake carrier then before!
It wasn’t a bad before, but it just wasn’t quite “me”, ya know? So I did some mixing up of the colors and font, and I happen to have discovered a food safe shellac that has COMPLETELY changed my spray painting world forever (I can now spray paint all of the kitchen things)! The best part is you still have plenty of time to whip up one of these cute little carriers before your holiday parties this year, because if you’re anything like me, the delivery has to be as cute as the sweets themselves (#OCD)!…

Considering the crazy amount of DIY macaron projects we’ve made up until this point, I have no idea how it hasn’t occurred to me to make a cool display for them before now! I mean, can we just talk about how amazing DIY flamingo macarons would’ve looked suspended in the air?! That’s what I call a serious missed opportunity folks, so I’ve corrected my error and will now be putting this DIY macaron display to verrrrry good use!
We also have a (free!) DIY event coming up September 3rd that I plan on using these pretty little stands for macarons for our dessert table, so I’ll definitely be sure to share another photo of them in action with enough stands for the whole class!
P.S.- If you want to be one of the first to get the FREE DIY event invite, sign up for the newsletter here!…
There is no shame in claiming box cake as your own (guilty!), but after many failed attempts in decorating, I, Rachael, have decided to leave the delicate frosted details up to the professionals! Instead, I’m going to show you an easy way to bump up your “homemade” cake to “party worthy” status with this DIY paper flower cake topper that you can definitely recreate at home.
Not only are paper flowers unmistakably original, but they’re also almost always served with a side of ooh’s and ahh’s come dessert time! All you need are a few simple materials to get started…
