DIY It - 15 Colorful Succulent Craft Projects

I will admit it, I love a good succulent project. Not only are succulent easy to take care of, but you can pretty much put them in any container inside and out. And I don't just love real succulents, I love felt succulents and faux succulents just as much! So to share my love for succulents with all of you, I rounded up 15 of my favorite colorful succulent projects from pin cushions, to small planters, to soap.

DIY It - Gradient Bar Ware

It may come as no surprise to you, but I am currently loving gradients. I love the way the colors mix together and overlap to create a unique pattern, and I especially love how you can achieve the look with just a few cans of spray paint. In an effort to turn everything I own colorful (JK, sort of), I recently gave my bar cart a cotton candy gradient makeover just in time for spring. A few glasses, a shaker, and even a wine opener got the gradient treatment, and I will show you how to recreate the look for yourself.

As it turns out, creating your own gradient set is easier than it may seem. Just a few cans of spray paint and a few bar ware pieces are all you need.

I guess what they say is true, fashion and trends are cyclical. I totally remember loving the holographic trend in the 90's as a kid, and now here I am obsessed with it again! But this time around I'm DIYing the holographics. I recently discovered a new product by Therm O Web called Deco Foil and their newest color collection features a holographic opal color. Say what?!

 I have been using Therm O Web's Heat and Bond Lite for years for all the bags I make and sell in my etsy shop, but this is the first time to got to try out their new Deco Foil line. While the Deco Foil comes in a ton of metallic and watercolor-esque options and can be used for paper crafting, I knew from the moment I saw it that I wanted to make a holographic clutch using the holographic opal color. Follow along below for the tutorial on making your own holographic fabric in any color you choose and how to sew it into this little zippered pencil pouch too!
