Aren’t sprinkles like…one of the top three cutest thing ever?! I think so. And so I love these sprinkle covered silhouettes! I think the words would be so cute as the food signs at a party. Or just imagine these on a much larger scale inside a shadow box-like frame in your child’s room! eeee!
- Sprinkles //
- Glue //
- Paper //
- Photos of loved ones/typed or hand drawn words
First get a photo of your most favorite thing. One of mine is obviously Malissa!
I modified this tutorial from this excellent project here. I’ve been wanting to try this for awhile and finally did! This is such an easy way to really take your party or event up a notch. Napkins are a small detail, but to me the small details make a huge difference!
- Cotton fabric (A Joyful Riot has custom designs available here)
- Sewing materials (thread, scissors)
- Sewing machine
Cut out your fabric into a rectangle measuring 6.5″ by 12.5″
These notebooks are perfect for so many things- use them as gifts or favors or just to keep in your purse to quickly write down shopping lists, thoughts, etc.
- Kraft Paper (Hobby Lobby or Michael’s carries it) //
- White Printer Paper (2.5 sheets per notebook) //
- Sewing machine (or you can sew by hand) //
- Notebook Templates (below) //
- Scissors //
- Washi Tape //
Before our kitchen in our current place was redone we were stuck with a 70’s kitchen that needed some serious DIY to make it not so…bleh. The easiest and most favorite upgrade that I did was covering the fridge with chalkboard contact paper. It made for a great canvas to decorate for any occasion. Cover the fridge with the contact paper and you’re done! It also came off easily after being on the fridge for around 9 months!

Roll the contact paper over the fridge, using a decent amount of pressure to reduce the air bubbles. It was easier in smaller chunks to do this but I wanted the final product to look as smooth as possible so I did it in two main sections. It only took me 20 minutes and I used 2 rolls of contact paper (but was unable to finish both sides of the fridge- but since one side was next to the wall it didn’t matter!)
