7 Spring DIYs To Try This Weekend

It’s good to put down the phone and close the laptop. Doing work with my hands helps me stay creative and inspired. It’s also a fun way to take care of my mental health. But sometimes DIYs can be overwhelming for me. So I like ones that I can do in a day or two.

Here are some Spring DIYs you can try this weekend:

1. Monogrammed Ring Cones
If you’re a jewelry girl like me, then this ones both fun and practical. I can never have enough trinkets to store and display my fave accessories. (via Brit+Co)

2. Song & Scripture Cards
Download, print, and listen. Easiest DIY for those of you who aren’t master DIYers yet. (via Styld by Grace)

3. Black and White Painted Vase
I’m in if it involves paint. It’s relaxing and always adds beauty to my home. And it’s never a bad idea to add some greenery indoors. (via Love Create Celebrate)

4. Mini Polymer Clay Bowls
You can use these for your office, bathroom, or in your drawers. I usually use mini bowls like these to put paperclips or to store a couple small bottles of Essential Oils in my bathroom.

5. Compliments Candy Bars
We all need a little encouragement sometimes. This is a perfect “Just because” gift for a friend that needs a small pick-me-up. Or if you’re hosting an event/get together, this works perfect as a party favor (via Oh Happy Day)

6. Terrazzo Style Notebook Covers
It happens to me all the time–I find the perfect notebook but the cover just isn’t cutting it for me. These notebook covers are the perfect blend of simple and colorful. (via Enthralling Gumption)

7. Abstract Color Block Sneakers
This is my favorite! And the one I’ll probably start with this weekend. I’m all for a paint project that I can WEAR, oh yeah! (via Enthralling Gumption)

Which one are you thinking of trying this weekend?!

5 Floral Accessory Finds

These are some floral accessories I found in my own closet. No shopping necessary! I’ve had these pieces for a few years, but I haven’t put them to good use in a while.

It’s a smart habit to hold on to statement pieces (big or small), even if you aren’t using them consistently. They will most likely be your “new” go to accessory when you least expect it. What was out of style a few years ago, might be in style now. And what was old yesterday, might be new today.

Repurpose and reuse your accessories. The satisfaction of getting a compliment on an old treasure (with no money spent) is pretty awesome.

Share some of your personal closet finds! How will you use them this summer?

Flowers on sneakers, sunglasses and crowns. Hooray!

I’m loving this trend because it reminds me of some of my favorite childhood dresses. It takes me to a place of innocence and being care-free. I usually stay away from trends with prints but I’m going to be a little adventurous and collect some floral pieces to wear. I’ll be sharing some of my finds!

You can also check out my Pinterest board for additional floral pieces.
