I instantly fell in love this whimsical flower crown, and the tutorial looks amazingly simple. Basically all you do is wrap craft flowers around a thin headband using floral wire: three supplies, about an hour, done. If this look is a bit too much for you, it’s easy to tone it down with less flowers… READ MORE »

There are tons of cool iPad cases out there, but if you want something that’s totally unique, you gotta make your own. This tutorial for how to turn a bubble envelope into an iPad case is one of the easiest, cheapest, and most creative I’ve seen so far. All you need is a padded envelope,… READ MORE »

Amelia sent me the link to these chain friendship bracelets and now we are both obsessed and have sworn to make them this weekend. I love how the chunky chain adds some edge to the traditional woven friendship bracelet, and I’m excited to choose yarn colors and get started. Care to join our bi-coastal crafting… READ MORE »

Here are a few things I believe to be true: Baking is good, but not baking is better. Chocolate is good, but chocolate and peanut butter is better. Complicated recipes are good, but ridiculously easy recipes are better. Surely now you can understand how I’ve deduced that this recipe for no bake chocolate peanut butter… READ MORE »

This project was originally created by a mom who wanted to help her young daughter learn geography and keep track of the places she’d been, but I think it would work just as well for adults looking for a whimsical way to chart their travels and plan upcoming adventures.

Today’s weekend DIY project comes courtesy of our friends over at Gurl.com, who show us how to add some pizazz to a basic light switch cover using decorative paper or even celebrity photos. Because really, why just turn on the light when you could be turning on Ryan Gosling? Check out the step-by-step tutorial and… READ MORE »

Even though “glitter” and “flats” are two of my favorite words, I must admit I initially gave this project the side-eye, since I assumed they would leave a little trail of glitter wherever you walked (which might be kind of magical in its own way, but mostly annoying). However, the brilliant Sues from We AreREAD MORE »

I might have gasped a little when I saw pictures of these framed flower vases. They’re creative, unexpected, and, luckily for us, they’re super easy to make. All you need are some frames, twine, and small vases, and voila: an eye-catching new way to display Spring’s prettiest stems. [via Flamingo Toes] … READ MORE »

I love the look of this ruffle necklace — it’s so delicate and feminine — and apparently you can make one yourself in about 10 minutes. You do need a sewing machine, but if you don’t have one, I’ve found that bringing a bottle of wine and a box of cookies over to a crafty… READ MORE »

Between the winter air and my obsession with intense lipsticks, my lips have been super chapped lately. I planned on splurging on a luxurious lip scrub at Sephora this weekend, but then my car made a funny noise, I took it to the shop, and suddenly I was $750 poorer. Now I’ll be making my… READ MORE »

This recipe for apple-vanilla bourbon instantly made my mouth water, and the best part? It’s the easiest recipe ever. Three ingredients, three steps: cube the apple, split the vanilla bean, combine with bourbon, done. It needs to steep for 5-7 days, so pour yourself a shot of regular bourbon now, and enjoy the fruits of… READ MORE »
