DIY // Fresh Flower Love Sign

I wish someone would’ve helped me out with some friendly advice in the handmade gift category as a child with things like this DIY floral love sign. Instead I gave my Mom things like painted rocks and the wonderful surprise of cutting up beloved printed photos and putting them in a cut up, teen magazine style collage that even obsessed Beiber lovers across the world couldn’t compete with (sorry about that one Mom!).

All of this to say that even kids can get in on this inexpensive project with a little helping hand, and it’s a DIY gift that’s actually worth saving and won’t cause tears of sadness from years of cut up family photos… don’t judge me.

DIY // Fresh Flower Gift Boxes

It’s like they always say, a gift is only as good as the box it comes in… okay maybe that’s not true, but a pretty box will always help! These DIY fresh flower gift boxes knock out three Mother’s Day birds with one stone: flowers, handmade, and chocolate. This is also assuming that your Mom is as addicted to chocolate as mine is (now you know where the sugar part of Sugar & Cloth comes from).

Side note: this is the first project we shot in the new studio. It took a few minutes to get used to from having graduated from my living room coffee table, but I’m loving it!

I have to say that my DIY xoxo gift wrap was a personal favorite! Can you guess what the reader favorite was? Hint: if hipster cupid shot arrows…

DIY // You’re Dynamite Valentines


DIY you're dynamite valentine DIY you're dynamite valentine

In case you were ever wondering if there was such a thing as friendly dynamite… the answer is yes. Not only is it friendly but it’s full of pretty surprises and love notes (at least my version is) with this DIY You’re Dynamite Valentine for this month’s 12 Months of Martha.

Can you guess what this little bundle of Cupid is made of? That’s right, an old seasoning container. Let’s not pretend that you aren’t looking for a good reason to buy the hot chocolate mix or can of Pringles, and I’m happy to support the habit for you to recycle them to make inexpensive I love you’s. If you are one of the die hards still sticking to your New Year’s resolution, you can just use an old mailing tube..
