Paper Scrap Flowers DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

When I made the Bonbon Advent Wreath last week, I was left with a beautiful pile of pink, red, green and gold scraps. Rather than toss them, I decided put them to good use – and to make some holiday place cards. When dinner is over, grab the flowers, remove the names and throw them in a vase for a long-lasting arrangement. Or send your guests home with a sweet keepsake. Happy Holidays!

Halloween Cake Topper DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

I saw these black ravens at the Dollar Store and couldn’t resist. There are only so many black ravens you can put around your front step though, so I snagged two to make this cake topper.

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Who doesn’t love a surprise ball? Granted, these spider ones aren’t nearly as pretty as these, but they certainly are creepier -and just in time for Halloween. Boo!

Welcome Home Cake Topper DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

A few weeks ago my mom gave me a package of wooden letters. I put them away, not knowing exactly what to do with them. When my husband came home from a long trip, I knew it was time to break them out. This is the prettiest and easiest cake topper I’ve ever made. And, you can write any message under the sun with these letters, and use any color sugar you can find – there are so many pretty hues out there.
