I’ve had this little DIY up my sleeve for a while now (inspired by my DIY Christmas cactus tree , of course), and I’m so pumped to finally share it with you! I’ll just leave out the part about me squealing like a school girl when I figured out how to make these DIY potted cactus macarons stand up all by themselves, I may or may not have showed everyone in the building…

The point is, is that they’re as sweet as they are cute, and they’re also one of the few cacti you can actually encourage kids to take a bite out of. Instead of searching for pricks and needles, you’ll just get the honor of enjoying their sugar high. DIY potted cactus macarons | sugar & cloth

DIY Floral Macarons

If Mother’s Day weekend brings nothing else, it’s flowers! To add a little flair to that tradition, I thought these DIY floral macarons would be good inspiration for those of you looking for a last-minute something sweet special. Granted, you may have some very colorful fingertips if you’re not used to coloring on cookies with food markers, but they will look awesome nonetheless! Even better if you gift them along with some Rifle Paper Co. goodness, which inspired them!

I also love the idea of displaying the floral macarons with fresh bay leaves on a dessert table, or even on a tray at home in lieu of the traditional floral centerpiece. That or you can combine the two and you’ll have yourself one super happy Mom and Instagram feed. Clearly I have no life when everything comes back to photo-ops. Don’t judge me guys, I try…

When I think of the word Hawaiian several things come to mind: pina coladas, bikini’s, beaches, Hawaiian punch (weird, I know. I don’t even drink them), Hawaiian rolls (you delicious things, you), and candles. Now if you’re still with me after that train wreck of a thought process, I’m happy to bring you a simple DIY vanilla orange mint sugar scrub that I love to make that helps me pretend that I’m in a tranquil, Hawaiian place (plus it helps you get ready for your upcoming beach days) as part of our little collaboration with Glade.

Now prepare yourself for silky smooth skin in all of five minutes with this super simple recipe that you can make while thinking of all of the things the word Hawaiian brings to mind. That’s totally what all of the cool kids do to prep for summer right?…

How to make flavored bitters & printables!

I’m always a sucker for cute jars, and lately I’ve caught myself wanting to buy the insanely expensive bitters jars to add to my bar cart collection almost strictly for the look of them (please tell me I’m not the only one who wants this?!). I’ve resisted my impulse buying urge, and since I loved the fruit patterned wall art that I made for the studio with my Sprout, I decided I wanted to include it at home for cute jar labels.

Obviously you can use labels for anything (and everything if you’re asking me), but I figured I’d try my hand at making my own bitters and use the labels for for those. Alas, it actually turned out to be more expensive than if I’d bought the pre-made versions (of course, isn’t that my luck?), but supposedly they taste much better, plus you can make twenty times the amount and reuse the spices over and over again. So really you can just look at it like a longer term investment (that’s me trying to console myself).

ANYWAYS, to share the love I figured I share what I learned on how to make flavored bitters & printables from my Sprout for you to use either to fill in the blanks on your own, or for your own bitters too!
