The Easiest 4th of July Cupcake Picks...Ever

Aren't these little Star picks just the cutest?
I can't even...

When I started styling my little photo shoot for the Mason Jar Sippers with Darby Smart, I was trying to work with what I had around the house to make something super quick.  I started grabbing red and blue fruit, some red plates, nautical 4th of July napkins, and cupcake wrappers with patriotic colors. But I didn't have anything to decorate the cupcakes.

So I came up with some crazy easy toppers that took 5 minutes to make.
 All you need is some silver floral wire and star stickers. 
That's it.
Cut your floral wire to different lengths and sandwich one end between two star stickers. 
Using different size stars in reds and blues makes it just about perfect.
Boom. You are done.
Don't they look darling??
I'm telling you. This is the easiest diy for your 4th of July party or get together.

4th of July Sippers with Darby Smart

For awhile now, I have wanted to update one of my most popular projects which was my Mason Jar Sippy Cups from a few years ago.  I was excited to add some paper straws, modern paper, and put a fun twist on one of the easiest projects I have ever done. I presented it to my friends at Darby Smart and they agreed to make this great project into a kit! 
I could not be more thrilled!!

Flower + Stripe Coasters

I had a ton of posts to share for Mother's Day but as usual...family life has caught up with me. I have so many ideas that I jot down in the notes section of my phone that never see the light of day.  But this is one that made the cut.  I wanted ideas for Mother's day that could be done last minute. And I get to combine my love of stripes and flowers. Win-win.

Recently, they asked me to be a designer (so excited!) and my first kit just launched a few weeks ago  to make these beautiful painted and decoupaged milk bottles.

Stick + Yarn Star Ornaments

Typically I am a person who will decorate and stay busy through the entire Christmas season until January 1st and then I want to sleep for a week. This year, I find myself looking for the blessing in simplicity.  To slow down and not make everything be about busyness and hustle.  So the cookies will be easy, the decorations are easy and of course...little projects too. 

Which is why I am sharing the easiest ornament in the entire universe. 
Simple for the kiddos and for you.

Embroidery Hoop Yarn Spider Webs

Well, I know I am getting this just under the wire but here is a quick and fun idea that I shared over at Eighteen25 a few weeks ago.  This great project is quick, kid friendly, and REALLY versatile.  I had a bunch of empty embroidery hoops of various sizes (just hanging all lonely like) in my craft room closet. And I started thinking that they would make the cutest little spider webs! I played around with the best way to do it and here's what I came up with... :)
