How to Hack the Most Colorful Birthday Candles Ever
The secret? Colored pencils! For real.
In case you missed it (how did you though?), we just celebrated the release of our very first book, Homemakers. This domestic handbook for the digital generation takes you through a redefinition of the word “home maker” room by room, from the dining room to the kitchen to the bedroom and all the way to the back porch. The back porch chapter of our book is where some of our favorite makers have stopped by to share their own awesome projects for living more beautifully and creatively.
Zandra Zuraw and Karen June Grant of Little Yellow Couch. Now we’re on to another inspiring (home)maker: Victoria Hudgins, creator of A Subtle Revelry. In Homemakers, Victoria shares her outrageously clever hack for turning colored pencils into birthday candles. It’s as simple as: choose your colors, stick ’em in the cake and light that sh*t up! You’ll have to buy our book for the full how-to ;)
In the meantime, read on to learn what inspires Victoria, how she got started and what’s on her studio playlist.
