Gold Foil Infinity Scarves

Really simple technique to give a painted gold foil look to scarves | A Joyful Riot

Seriously, out of 100 photos Malissa and I took, that ^ is the best face I made (thumbs down!). Nevertheless I got to stand next to Malissa and we both got these new scarves to wear that were SO easy to make! So its ok that my face is a perma-half-smile-squinty-scowl-thing in all the pictures. I guess…

Mid-century DIY Coffee Table

Raise your hand if you’re ready for a super easy coffee table DIY! This honestly took me 45 minutes including drying time, it was amazing. And the white table totally brightens up my living room (remember I had this coffee table before?). I’ve been changing up some of my living room decor and my previous table just no longer matched and this one fits much better. It also has a slight mid-century feel which is always a plus if you ask me.

Gumball Machine Easter Eggs

I guess our eggs are not very Easter-y are they? They’re basically just eggs masquerading as all my favorite things! Balloons and donuts and gum, oh my!

Seriously though, I had too much fun creating these bright and colorful eggs this year! And I LOVE bubble gum, always have, so I think I’m kind of partial to these gum ball machine ones. Plus they’re perfect for so many birthday party themes so they’re not just appropriate for Easter. That’s what I call a win!

Narwhal Easter Eggs

Easter eggs that look like the most magical real creature ever, a narwal! Also perfect for a nautical birthday party, just leave off the horn for little whales. | A Joyful Riot

I bet you remember when you found out narwhals were real, I sure do! They’re like unicorns mixed with whales and they actually¬†exist! I remember telling everyone “Hey you know that creature at the beginning of Elf that wishes Buddy luck? That is actually a real animal!” And they were always shocked too. So I thought I’d use these magical creatures as inspiration for cute little creature eggs this Easter.
