DIY Color Block Easter Basket

Supplies

Easter basket
embroidery floss in various colors
hot glue gun
scissors

Directions

  1. Place a small amount of glue on the basket handle. Stick one end of the embroidery floss in the glue and then wrap the floss around the handle.
  2. When you’ve wrapped it as wide as you like, place a small amount of glue on the underside to secure the end. Then use small scissors to trim the end. Continue wrapping the handle with various colors of embroidery floss to create a color block look.

Color blocking is one trend that I don’t think I’ll grow tired off. I’ve color blocked bangle bracelets to vases and everything in between. This technique would also be cute on laundry baskets or even bike baskets too. Basically anything with a handle could be wrapped in colorful embroidery floss!

DIY Faux Succulent Easter Egg Planters

Supplies

faux eggs
faux succulents
scissors
craft paint
paint brushes
hot glue gun

Directions

  1. Use heavy duty scissors to cut the tops off faux eggs.
  2. Use craft paint to paint patterns on each egg. Allow to dry before adding succulents.
  3. Apply a lot of hot glue to the bottom side of faux succulents and place them inside the open end of the eggs. Add more hot glue as necessary. Hold in place for a few seconds until the glue sets. Then display your eggs together in an egg carton or individually in an egg cup.

Cutting these plastic eggs definitely requires heavy duty scissors. These scissors have been my new favorite multi-purpose tool in the house. I keep them in the kitchen drawer because they have a bottle opener on one blade and can even be separated and placed in the dishwasher. And the wire cutter end is also great for trimming small wooden dowels or skewers.

The faux succulents used in these mini planters aren’t your grandma’s silk flowers. I was so surprised how real these look! I can’t wait to use them again in other DIY projects.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I hope you day is filled with lots of delicious treats and a little extra luck!

This weekend I’ve got a horse clinic and a fun brunch on the books—both with plenty of sunshine. Sorry east coast friends but the spring weather in LA has been more than ok this week. But if you’re snowed in and looking for for a little something to DIY for yourself this weekend, you gotta try one of these pretty projects from this week.

  1. I need this necklace!
  2. You can put patches on everything—including phone cases.
  3. Rhinestones on chunky heels are a match made in heaven.
  4. Tassels on earrings are the perfect spring accessory.
