Build It - A Color Blocked Two Tiered Coffee Table

This post is sponsored by DecoArt. Thank you so much for supporting the brands that keep the crafts coming!

I am all about the mid-century modern aesthetic, but I don't necessarily love the price tag that often comes along with all those coveted pieces. So naturally I decided to use my DIY skills to create my own mid-century inspired piece. And with a little Deco Art Vintage Effect Wash and a few cuts of wood, I was able to DIY  the cutest color blocked two tiered coffee table!




See?! The absolute cutest ever!!! All the traditional mid-century two tiered tables that I see are all rectangular, so I loved the concept of making this one round. Plus, it makes the color blocking pop even more against the curved table tops.

By now I am sure you have seen that this is the year of the statement earring. Whether it be tassels, beads, or pom poms the over the top look of these earrings just bring that perfect pop of bright and colorful to your outfit. There are several tutorials out there for making your own statement earrings, and I even sell pom pom earrings here in my shop. But to make yourself really stand out from the crowd, I wanted to share how easy it is to make your own dragon fruit slice pom pom earrings!



Aren't they just full of all sorts of summer vibes?! And this tutorial can easily be made with red and green yarn instead for a pair of watermelon pom pom earrings! How sweet!

DIY It - Typography Drink Stirrers

You all probably know that I love typography. I have made close to a dozen projects involving text and words, like my favorite YAY vase. They are the perfect way to say what you want to say without actually having to say it, and for an introvert like me, that is gold.

These typography drink stirrers are the perfect way to dress up your cocktail for your next party. The best part is you can easily customize these to your parties color scheme and appropriate phrase. Bridal shower? How about MRS and MS, or BRIDE. Birthday party? CAKE, BDAY, YAY all would be great! So, now that I've convinced you that you need to make a set of typography drink stirrers for yourself, let me show you how easy it is.

Make It - Holographic Mirrors!

During my last trip to the craft store I stumbled upon the most magical craft supply ever! Holographic vinyl! The combo pack contained three holographic sheets of adhesive backed vinyl each showing a rainbow of different colors. Of course I snapped it up and brought it home to craft with. I ended up making three different projects from the one tube of vinyl, and since I used my Joann coupon, it ended up being only $6 for all three sheets. Talk about a good deal!

First up on my project list were these simple holographic mirrors made using $2 Ikea mirrors. So this entire project cost less than $10 for three mirrors! Yay for cute, quick, and affordable DIYs!



One thing that I have realized is that it is extremely difficult to photograph holographic things, but see how the color changes depending on the angle that you look at the mirrors? And trust me when I say they are even more amazing in person!
