Spring is here and what better way to kick off the season than with pretty flowers, right? This month’s wallpaper features delicate white anemones which have been popping up all around flowers shops here. They also are one of my favorites so I hope you enjoy this wallpaper and much as I do.

Easter is around the corner and I’m sharing another fun and super easy DIY today. All you need is a couple supplies to create your own color blocked Easter basket. This technique is so simple you’ll be color blocking all the things in no time.
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.
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!
You don’t need a green thumb to make these mini planters. Just some scissors and a glue gun! These faux Easter egg succulent planters can be made in minutes and will last year after year. Watch the video below to see just how easy they are to make.
Use heavy duty scissors to cut the tops off faux eggs.
Use craft paint to paint patterns on each egg. Allow to dry before adding succulents.
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.
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.
