Okay, this post may have an identity crisis of some sort. I couldn’t decide if it was a DIY or Recipe considering it’s technically food which would be a recipe, but you’re not actually cooking anythings, just constructing items. Do you see my dilemma here? The struggle is real! Either way, these DIY mini monster eyeball donuts are delicious regardless of what you call them!
For all of you Moms out there looking for a quick and run treat for the kids that requires all of 2.5 seconds to make, these are it! If you can compile a s’more, then you can definitely make these little monster eyes!…
With several Holiday events on the books for this Fall, I, Erin, am working on getting my bar cart stocked, styled, and ready for the upcoming action. Not only does a bar cart add a fun, retro element to any gathering, but it can also serve as a fantastic design focal point in our homes.
I like to add visual interest to my cart by playing with contrasting textures, so I whipped up a DIY bar cart runner to drape over the top and help soften the otherwise smooth and crisp cart and barware elements. Now, can you guess what home improvement store item I used to make this pattern?!

Besides the PSL (pumpkin spiced latte) craze, you know Fall has really arrived once people start busting out the candied apples. I’ve never really understood this Fall/Candied Apple phenomenon myself, but hey, I can get down with just about anything dipped in caramel any time of the year, so I don’t question it. I did, however, take it upon myself to make DIY candied apple macarons for those that prefer not to have the mess of regular caramel apples but still like to blend in when Fall rolls around.
I know what you’re all thinking right now, “Sure, go ahead and pretend to take one for the team when really you just wanted to make something else out of macarons”. In that instance, you’d be correct, but I am at least sharing my DIY fail portion of this with you, too…
I could honestly dream up polymer clay DIY ideas every week for the rest of my life. I, Teri, love this stuff and can’t get enough of just how versatile it is as a material. Even better is that this tutorial doesn’t involve rolling or moulding, so it literally couldn’t be simpler unless a very kind person did it for you instead (ha!). These DIY mini mountain photo holders are a super cute way to display your own snaps, creations, or the sweet momentos you pick up on your merry way. Not to mention they’re perfect for the upcoming holidays!
Have a few dotted along a shelf or one by your bed to create an interesting way of showing off your paper goods, especially those that aren’t quite big enough for your walls but love regardless…

If a colorful wardrobe is something you pride yourself on, then this Halloween costume idea will be easy breezy for you to recreate! Plus, if you were even remotely in touch with your friends from art school, you’d know that it doesn’t get much more hipster for Halloween than a DIY pantone color combo couples costume (try and say that three times really quick!).
This also has to be one of my favorite costume ideas that we came up with, and the beauty of it is you still have cute outfits to wear around when the season is over, because the Pantone labels are removable (winning!)…

First off, can we just openly laugh about how Jared looks like the missing member from N’Sync, and I look like I walked right off of a plastic Halloween costume bag from the nearest costume store? You win some, you lose some, right?! All in all, this Pushing Daisies couples costume idea is something you can definitely recreate with what’s in your closet — if you’re a hipster of course. Which apparently I am a little bit, but mostly I’m referring to Jared’s ensemble, which minus the apron.. and the random pie.. he would wear on a normal day.
Technically I’m not quite cool enough for my dress, because I’m friending up with Cheeky Vintage and was able to snag the perfect LRD (little red dress) from them for this outfit!
