Try ones of these DIY home or jewelry projects this weekend!

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.

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.

Pocky Easter Nest Treats

Make these birds nest treats in minutes using your favorite flavor of @Pocky! Click through to watch the video tutorial.

Looking for a cute treat to serve this Easter? Then you gotta try these oh-so-easy and oh-so-delicious Pocky Easter nest treats! They take almost no effort to make and look almost too cute too eat. The secret is using your favorite flavor Pocky to create the nest. No fusing with melting chocolate or lugging out the mixer for this recipe. Just chop, bake, and pop them in the freezer. In just 15 minutes you’ll have a sweet Easter treat that both kids and adults will love. The hardest part is not eating all the Pocky before it’s done!

I used my two favorite flavors—Chocolate and Matcha Green Tea to make brown and green birds nests. But you can use any flavor of Pocky you like. They would be just as tasty and pretty with Strawberry Pocky!

15-minute Pocky Nest Treats

supplies

Chocolate Pocky and Matcha Pocky
silicone non-stick cupcake pan
jelly bean eggs
knife
cutting board

directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 200° F. Use a kitchen knife to trim the biscuit ends off the Pocky (you can save them for snacking).  Then cut the dipped Pocky into thirds.
  2. Arrange the chopped Pocky in the cups of a silicone cupcake pan. Leave a small opening or indentation in the middle for the eggs. Place is the pre-heated oven for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and immediately place the jelly bean eggs in the center of each nest. Pop the entire pan in the fridge for 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to set. Once hard, remove the nests from the silicone pan and enjoy!

notes

1 – 2.47 oz. box of Pocky yields 5 nest treats when using a standard size cupcake pan. And if you don’t have a silicone cupcake pan you can use a regular metal pan. Just line the cups with cupcake liners before adding the Pocky.

They can be made a day ahead but are best (and crunchiest) if you make them the same day you want to eat them. I found that the matcha coating cracks slightly after 1 day but the chocolate stay nice and smooth. If you’re planning on making them for your Easter party, I’d recommend making them the same day.

You can find your favorite Pocky in stores near you! Check out their new store locator and pick some up today. And leave a comment below and let me know what flavor you plan on making your Easter nests with. The possibilities are endless!
