Oilcloth Bowl Covers DIY

This DIY vintage cuteness from Sugar and Charm will cure your tupperware problems! The problem of missing lids, that is. These cuties are pretty easy to make and great for the upcoming season of toting food to-and-fro parties and gatherings. Also: for those of you who bake, this is a great alternative to saran-wrapping your pyrex bowls while your sponge rises! We just think these are the cutest!


Julie Blanner Centerpieces

We found this lovely blog run by Julie Blanner with a great theme: entertaining & design that celebrates everyday life. We love how clean and approachable Julie’s style is! These centerpieces come together so easily and beautifully with flowers and fruit that you can find at the grocery store. Cheers to Julie! We think these centerpieces are so inspiring and great for the upcoming holiday season!

A Sweet DIY Gift: Lemon Sugar Scrubs

Hello Ribbonistas! We thought these Lemon Sugar Scrubs were such a cute DIY gift! We see a lot of DIY sugar scrubs out there but these from A Pumpkin and A Princess are especially fantastic because they are little cubes! So convenient. And would look fantastic in a cute little jar! We love’m and think they’d make great little gifts. Check out the A Pumpkin and A Princess Blog recipe here!


Balsa Wood Planter via Fall For DIY

The projects on Fall for DIY are fun and beautifully photographed – we especially like this Balsa Wood Planter! If you want to make it into a pretty, seasonal planter, sub the cactus for potted Rosemary, miniature Cedar or miniature Fir! Follow our DIY board for more fun DIY’s ranging from the simple to the long-term projects!



Another Ribbon Tree Idea!

We pinned these Fynes Designs Christmas Trees earlier this year and wanted to share with you! If you do not want to waste a good funnel, we see no reason why you couldn’t take heavy cardstock or posterboard and fashion a cone with some hot glue! And of course, if you have some foam cones around, go ahead and use those! SUPER easy and super cute. Bonus points for using a wooden spool as your Tree Trunk.

Looking for a good combination of RABOM ribbon for this project? Here’s our pics!

Pinecone Firestarter

The title for this post was almost Twisted Firestarter because that would have been cute and kinda accurate and you know, the 90’s :)

Your little (older) ones will LOVE making these. Dipping things into a vat of wax? Totally fascinating. And wonderful-smelling. And definitely a spectator-craft for the littler ones… :) This craft from Something Turquoise is fantastic! So is the rest of her blog!


Idea though – what if  you also sprinkled them with a generous amount of stamping glitter after their last dip? THAT would be a Christmas craft / Neighbor Christmas Gift that would be incredibly cute and fun to gift :) As long as you’re the type whose OK seeing glitter on house / self / kids / food / everything.

Her directions are so thorough! Can’t recommend this fun-looking DIY enough :)


Again, head to Something Turquoise for this project and so many more cute ones like it!


Last-minute costume: Cotton Candy

This costume could go a couple of different ways: lamb, dust bunny, cotton candy, cloud, bunny, you can probably think of a few more :) If you’re in need of a last-minute costume and you have access to quilt batting, you’re in luck! This costume comes from Hello Wonderful, you can find all kinds of sturdy, wow-that’s-actually-really-cool! DIY’s from these guys. We love the doability and creativity of their site! Check them out.


to try: Bubble Pizza

When we ran across this recipe on Pinterest and saw the phrase Bubble Pizza we thought this must be something no-carb that involves lumps of cheese that only a dogged, determined no-carb dieter could handle. Wrong!


Wrong! So wrong. It’s actually a pretty inventive, delicious sounding pizza dish that requires no pizza stone and no natural baking talents!  And – as the name of the blog Gluten Free on A Shoe String might tell you – it’s gluten-free!


Check out the full recipe on Gluten Free on a Shoe String and many more awesome looking bakes!
