DIY Balloon Piñata Dog, Compliment Cakes, and More Easy Weekend Projects
The weekend is so close we can almost taste it! That means it's time to start dreaming of sweet DIYs to fill your out-of-the-office afternoons. Get to work on entertaining essentials, boho home decor, or one of the eight other projects before Monday's return.
DIY Balloon Dog Piñata: Because it’s not a party until the piñata shows up. Honestly, even if you don’t have a summer fiesta planned this weekend, you might need this balloon dog in your life. (via Oh Happy Day)
DIY Compliment Cakes: If you’ve steered clear of writing on cakes because your penmanship isn’t the steadiest, you’ll LOVE this hack. Use royal icing and wax paper to get the perfect lettering that'll instantly transform any store-bought cake. (via Studio DIY)
DIY Statement Boho Mirror: Looking to upgrade your bathroom or bedroom? Combine two of Pinterest’s favorite decor trends: wall hangings and round mirrors. (via Brit + Co)
DIY Confetti Glasses: Is your bar cart ready for a season of spiked lemonade and boozy ice tea? Upgrade basic acrylic glasses with vinyl “confetti” for a truly summer-worthy bar setup. (via A Kailo Chic Life)
DIY Wood Block Photos: Get those fave photos off your devices and out into the real world. Wood blocks are a crazy cool way to show off pictures without having to hang a single frame. Nail holes, bye! (via A Beautiful Mess)
DIY Beach Party Tote Bag: Every beach day, picnic, and pool party requires a cool tote. Makeover a plain straw bag with bright colors, bold patterns, and a seriously fun pom-pom trim. (via Brit + Co)
DIY Rickrack Hat: Your weekend hours are valuable, so don’t waste any time shopping for the perf floppy hat. It’ll take you about 10 minutes to make this bad boy, and then you can get back to sunbathing. (via Sugar & Cloth)
DIY Jewelry Stand: If you consider yourself a hoarder of shiny objects, it’s time to ditch the chaos for a clutter-free solution. But that doesn't mean you have to hide your pretty jewels! Try putting them on display with this nifty hack. (via Brit + Co)
