Patriotic Party Decor >>> Subway Art + Container Makeovers

Hi crafty friends! We’re celebrating America and the 4th of July with this fun patriotic party.
This is such a simple idea, but displaying beautiful lyrics can have a really big impact.
 We started with Hazel & Ruby’s Boutique Alpha Stencil-Mask letters, navy paint and 3 foam core boards.
 Place the lettering on the boards and apply the paint.
 Be sure to check the lyrics online…
you might be surprised that you’ve been singing it wrong for years :-)
Hazel & Ruby’s DIY Decor tape is so versatile, and their Navy Polka Dots really dressed up our boring white party gear! 
So festive!
 Now join your little patriotic party animals and have a Happy 4th of July!

Simple Summer Wedding Projects!

Wedding season is in full swing!
Here are some sweet and simple DIY Summer wedding projects.
There is nothing I love more than a backyard wedding!
These personalized centerpieces were so easy to create. 
You can upcycle your old containers with the help of Hazel & Ruby and their AMAZING Candy Stripe Decor Tape.
We cut the stripes and stuck them on…so much easier than messing with ribbon!
We personalized this planter with Hazel & Ruby’s Brooklyn Alpha Stencil Masks.
Apply the lettering and a quick coat of paint.
Super easy!
Such a charming way to personalize the centerpieces.
These tissue flowers are so whimsical and fun.
 We used Hazel & Ruby’s Lace is the Place tissue paper. It’s really beautiful with the delicate lace design. These LED clip-on lights can be found at your local craft supply store.
Cut the tissue paper into 3 varying sizes.
Cut a small opening in the middle of the flower and the clip will hold it together.
They are a great lighting element.
Happy crafting!

Celebrating the Fourth of July with a Handmade Card!

Happy Monday, Hazel & Ruby Fans!

I’m up today with a fun handmade card to celebrate the 4th of July. I know most of us don’t really send out 4th of July cards, but I do like to make a few to give to the kids with some 4th of July fireworks (sparklers and poppers) with a little note inside reminding them to be fun … and safe.
