Valentine’s Knife + Tassel DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

I ran into CB2 the other day and was stopped short by these cute little porcelain knives they carry. As I stood there, a poem my grandmother used to write me at Valentine’s Day popped into my head. Knife + poem = a sweet little valentine for less than the price of a card! Colorful mini tassels add a bit of color. Tie it all up, put it in a rigid mailer, and mail it to your valentines near and far, or hand out as favors at a Valentine’s party.

Honeycomb Wreath DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

I’m so glad that honeycomb paper is shedding its tacky reputation — think 80’s school dances, seasonal supermarket decorations hanging above the produce department — you get the idea. This festive honeycomb wreath will surely brighten up any room and spread some holiday cheer. Happy Holidays!
