DIY Cute Taco Pillow Plushie (Father’s Day gift ideas)

TACO-DIY

Father’s Day is coming. Do you know what to get your father? Last year, I found a super cool top with taco prints on it.  I immediately thought of Eric. He loved the shirt and wore it almost every other day until I told him he needs to stop.  Anyhow, this year I thought about that top and transforming the cute taco prints to a pillow.  This is a fun DIY for anyone who loves tacos. I mean look how adorable it is… look at those taco eyes!

Hey Everyone!!! I hope you all are enjoying the beautiful weather and outdoors. One of the things I love most about summer is cooking out.  It’s such a wonderful time to get all your family and friends together and just enjoy food.  Usually at a cookout, the guys are grilling and the ladies are chatting while snacking and drinking.  Everything about a cookout is fun EXCEPT for those pesky bugs!

Therefore… for today’s DIY I’m showing how you can make cute mini Watermelon Citronella Candles.  These candles will not only look amazingly adorable but they will help repel those pesky bugs.

DIY Doggie {Pet} Teepee

Pet-Teepee-2

Hey Everyone! Summer is here and today is all about our furry friends. Harley, my little Pomeranian hangs out in our yard a lot.  There are times when the California heat is scorching hot and we can’t take the poof out with us.  Therefore Harley hangs out in our patio, where he can walk around and stretch his shorty legs out on.    Although half of our patio is covered in shade, I wanted to make Harley a little summer tent/teepee so he can have a place to feel safe and nap in. It also looks super adorable to see him in it!

DIY Anthropologie Style Aprons

DIY-Aprons-2
Whenever I think of my mum, I see her in the kitchen toiling over some crazy steamy and tasty concoction.  The smells of Vietnamese spices would engulf the kitchen and the noises of kitchen pans and utensils clanging together made my stomach growl.  Her Banh Xeo(Vietnamese stuffed crepes) makes me salivate just thinking about it.  Gosh.  Ok, back on topic.  Mother’s Day is coming up and I started wondering what would be a great gift to give mum.  Flowers eventually die, chocolates end up on the hips and shiny things lay forgotten in the jewelry box.  However, Mom is always seeming in the kitchen, so something that she could use while making a tasty treat would be a delight.  I was in Anthropogie the other day and fell in love with their ecclectic aprons, but wanted something with a little more personality.  I have been loving colorful mono block prints on upholstery fabrics and thought that they would be perfect to make an apron with.  It was just a matter of deciding to stop procrastinating and start to DIY aprons when my friend Elise of MyCupcakeAddiction came by on a stop from Australia.  Both of us wanted to collaborate on Mother’s Day gift ideas and decided to get to work!  Are you ready to make some super cute aprons using either a no-sew or sew technique?  Well, read on!……

DIY Cute Minion & Emoji Easter Eggs

Emoji-Minion-eggs

Hey guys! Regardless if you celebrate Easter or not this is a fun and quick DIY for all who simply want to put a smile on someone’s face. If you follow me then you probably already know, but I love using emojis and I use them all the time. Previously, I did an Emoji Pillow tutorial on which you can find here, but I thought that I could also use emojis to decorate eggs! I also think the Minions from Despicable Me are so cute. I’m excited for the upcoming Minion movie.

This Easter DIY is perfect for everyone in the family to do at the same time! You can do this with hardboiled eggs as well, but if you are Vegetarian of Vegan, no worries, you can use plastic eggs! This is also perfect as an after Easter Egg hunt activity to do after taking the treats out of all the plastic eggs!
