{DIY} How to Make a Paper Flower Backdrop

by Jillian Leslie on

I had to share this paper flower backdrop tutorial created by Ellinée because I think it is so beautiful and original. I love the 3D nature of it. How amazing would this look behind a dessert table!

The tutorial comes with the paper flower garland templates and instructions. You just need to download the templates, cut out the flowers, attach the flowers to baker's twine using an embroidery needle, and tie the twine to a pretty branch.

DIY: How to Tint Mason Jars

by Jillian Leslie on

I just discovered that you can tint mason jars and make them look like this, and all it takes is a little Modge Podge and food coloring. I found this easy tutorial put together by Heidi of My Beautiful Mess.

What I like about this tutorial is that Heidi paints the jars on the outside instead of the inside like most tutorials I've seen. This way, if you want to use them as floating candle votives or as flower vases you can. Personally, I think I'm going to use them to store odds and ends.
