April Favorites

Blogger Sarah Hearts shares some of the home and fashion items she loves this season!

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite items I  purchased this month! Since many of you ask where I purchase certain things, I thought this would be a fun monthly series to begin. I’ll share home decor, fashion and other items I either recently purchased or newly discovered that I love and I think you will too.

My april favorites

  1. Lightning to USB Leather Tassel

    I don’t travel anywhere without clipping this onto my purse or tote. It great for charging extra phone chargers on planes but I’ve found it to be handy time and time again. And the best part is that it just looks like a super cute, coral-ly pink leather tassel.

  2. embroidered springtime top

    Lately I’m found myself obsessed with Madewell. This floral top was on my wishlist since I first spotted it, so I scooped it up when they had a 30% off sale. Now it’s my go-to top for spring (and soon to be summer too).

  3. anywhere vases

    I picked these up from the SFMOMA last weekend. They’re powder coated metal pieces that transform just about any glass or cup into a vase. Cannot wait to pick up some flowers this weekend and give them a try.

  4. Solana sandals

    I’m a sucker for just about any leather item in a saddle/Havana color and these pretty heels are no exception. The best part is they are made for achy feet—the first pair of heels I’ve been able to wear in years.

  5. Blokzijl Hand-Tufted Rug

    Ok, so I didn’t get this this month, but I did get this rug recently and I’m in love. It gave our living room just the refresh it needed and it’s the first thing people comment on when they walk in the house.

DIY paper plate baskets

supplies

uncoated paper plates
watercolors + paint brush
permanent double-sided tape

directions

  1. Paint fun patterns on the top side of uncoated paper plates. I used gouache paints I had on hand but you can use any type of paint, even a kid’s school watercolor set will do the job. Just paint as you please and allow the plates to dry completely before assembling them.
  2. Then watch the video below to see how to fold and assemble them!
  3. Fill with your favorite snacks—my choice is Harvest Snaps!

Happy weekend!

We’re in route to northern Cali for a weekend visiting some dear friends, so I’m taking the weekend off from DIYing (and working, woohoo) but if you’re looking for something fun to create here are 4 really great DIYs to try. 2 for you and 2 for your home!

This week I’m loving…

  1. These mini painted canvases.
  2. These dainty bracelets (maybe get a super head start on stocking stuffers).
  3. These tassel necklaces. Seriously so good.
  4. This colorful Easter table and take a look at that peach half dipped wall.

P.S.

Getting this $15 dress ASAP after spotting it on Melodrama.
Prettiest. Cake. Ever.
Just ordered this bag. And then found out I could have DIYed it.

Printable Easter Candy Box Labels

Create adorable giftable Easter candy boxes using these free printable designs with @avery labels

No Easter would be complete without Easter candy, right? If you’re looking for a non-tractional Easter basket or a more grown-up Easter gift these acrylic candy boxes are the perfect Easter treat. Using the free Avery labels I designed, you can create cute Easter candy gift boxers in a matter of minutes. Just download the label designs, customize them if you want, print and stick.

I opted to fill my boxes with grapefruit gummy bears, white malt eggs, sour jelly beans and of course peeps but you can use any Easter candy you like. They hardest part is not eating all the candy before filling up the boxes.

supplies

wraparound MyAvery labels
MyAvery scallop labels
blank MyAvery scallop labels download these if you want to add your own text

Avery 8218 labels
Avery 8217 labels
clear candy boxes
favorite Easter candy
color inkjet or laser printer (I use this one)

directions

  1. Download the templates (above) and open using Avery’s Design & Print Online software. If you want to add your own text to the scalloped labels, download and open the blank labels and use the text tool to add text.
  2. Print it out. Print out the design on plain, copy paper first to double-check the alignment. Then make any adjustments (such as left, right, up or down) within the software and then print on the label paper. Make sure to feed the paper in correctly according to your printer’s requirements.
  3. Fill with candy and apply the labels. Fill each clear box with candy and seal the boxes with the wraparound labels. Finish it off with a scalloped label and your boxes are ready for Easter gifting.

The wraparound labels fit these 4″ x 4″ x 2″ boxes perfectly. But if you want to add subtle detail to the boxes, you can trim the ends of the wraparound labels to a point. Just snip the ends of the wraparound labels with scissors before placing it on the box. Not a necessary step at all, but adds a cute detail.
