Father’s Day Hardware Store Garland DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Who says party decorations need to come from the party store or the craft store? Here’s a father’s Day project that doesn’t involve golf references or ties of any sort – made out of items purchased entirely at the hardware store. One quick stop and a few dollars later, and you’ll have a custom garland (make it say anything you want!) to celebrate Father’s Day.

Giant Diploma Graduation Gift DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

What could be more appropriate to give a new graduate than a GIANT diploma?!  It’s so easy to make – then fill with what every new graduate really needs – tons of good luck. The possibilities are endless, but some of the lucky items you could include are a 4-Leaf Clover set, a giant lucky penny, an elephant, a frog, an acorn, some lucky dice, and of course, some Lucky Charms.

Mini Mother’s Day Trophies DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

And the award goes to….Mom! Of course, who else?! These little party store trophies get a new life as a sweet token for Mom. Because they’re so easy to make, you can give them to all the moms in your life – friends, sisters, moms, step-moms, mom-in-laws….perfect for place settings or to give out at a Mother’s Day brunch. I filled them with fresh miniature flowers, but you could also fill with them with tissue paper flowers and pop them in the mail.
