DIY Ribbon Tassel Tutorial | Hip ‘n Creative

Hey guys!  Today I’m excited  to share a DIY Ribbon Tutorial with you!  Now this tutorial is something I did a while ago and for some strange reason many of my blog posts haven’t been showing up on my Blog!  I hope to have cleared any mishaps and it will be smooth sailing from here on out! So check out my video and if you haven’t done so yet make sure to subscribe!

Dollar Tree DIY | Adorable Easter Bunny Pots | Hip ‘n Creative

Hey guys I hope you’re all feeling fabulous today!  So Today I have this adorable DIY Easter Bunny Pot Tutorial for you.  It is another super simple project but this time the project can be time consuming (because of the drying time for the paint)  I think it’s adorable and if you have any school aged kids, they may love making this project with you!

What you will need:

  • Terra Cotta Pots (Dollar Tree)
  • Plastic Spoons (Dollar Tree)
  • Sanding sponge (Dollar Tree)
  • Paint Brushes (Dollar Tree)
  • Pipe Cleaners (Dollar Tree) *optional
  • Easter Grass (Dollar Tree) or anywhere 😉
  • Floral Foam (Dollar Tree)
  • Paint (Wal-Mart)
  • Ribbon (Dollar Tree)
  • newspaper or something to protect your surface
  • Sharpies

DIRECTIONS:

First thing I did was sand down the spoons to remove the shine.  This will help the paint to adhere to the spoons easier.

Next painted the pots white.  You may need to paint 2 – 3 coats (allow drying time in between).  Next I painted the pot’s rim (again giving it 2 -3 coats).  I also painted some polka dots on the side of the pots.  I also painted the spoons to coordinate with the pots.

Once everything is dry you can draw the faces on the spoons.  I drew dots for eyes and triangles for beak or  bunny nose.  The whiskers are “V” shapes 😉  I decided to make some bunny ears out of pipe cleaners, I cut out the pipe cleaners and shaped them into ears.  Next I hot glued them to the back of the spoons.  I also hot glued some decorative ribbon to the “neck” of the spoons.

Lastly I assembled my pots.  I cut down the floral foam to fit the narrowest part of the pot, then I inserted the foam, my spoons and easter grass.  I also wrote my daughter’s names on a scrap piece of scrapbook paper and taped it onto a toothpick.  and that’s it!

Now as usual, I did make a video for you.  I would love it if you subscribed to my channel, it would truly mean the world to me.  Also sharing is caring, so if you know of someone that would find this tutorial inspiring please share it with them.  Thank you so much and I’ll see you soon!

DIY Elegant Ribbon French “Braid” Vase | Dollar Tree DIY | Hip ‘n Creative

What’s up guys!  I hope you’re all feeling fabulous today.  So today I have another Dollar Tree DIY project for you!  I think this French Braid Vase tutorial is so fun, easy and so pretty too!  This would be a perfect DIY project for weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, quinceaneras and so much more!  It’s super easy and inexpensive, a win win right?

For this project you will need:

  • Cylinder vases (dollar tree)
  • Candle Holders (Dollar Tree)
  • 5yrd. Ribbon (Dollar Tree or Michaels) don’t forget your 40% Michaels coupon!
  • Easter Grass (Dollar Tree) or anywhere
  • Flowers (Dollar Tree)
  • Eggs on Sticks (Dollar Tree)
  • Glue gun with Glue Sticks (or Double sided tape from Dollar Tree) or e6000 if you have any

The first thing I did was glue my candle holder to the center of the vase, if you’re using e6000 make sure to give it 24 hours before moving on to the next step.

Next I used my double sided tape (or you can use your glue gun) and adhered my ribbon to the back of the vase.  

Bringing the ribbon forward I double twisted my ribbon making sure the print is showing forward (if your ribbon doesn’t have any printing no need to do this part).  I continued towards the back of the vase double twisting the ribbon again,  I did that until I reached the end of the vase.  At this point if your ribbon is long enough, you can tie a bow.

Next I filled the vase with Easter grass and arranged my flowers and easter eggs as I like and that’s it!  Super simple project and looks fabulous and is inexpensive!

Dollar Tree Home Decor DIY | Easy Home Decor Projects

I have been wanting to redo my laundry room for some time now.  I think the previous owner didn’t use the room to it’s fullest potential.  The room is a nice size and i cannot wait to revamp it, so when I went to Target recently I knew that some of the Valentine decor would be perfect for my laundry room/ new office. I also made a few Dollar Tree DIY projects that will go perfect with the office decor.  Stay tuned to see the laundry room redo (coming very soon!) but for now I want to show you some DIY room decor I made using products from Target and the Dollar Tree:
