Oh Baby Tablecloth DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Have a baby shower coming up?  I conquered my fear of cutting out felt letters with the simple trick of printing out the letters, then cutting the paper and cloth together. This project took several nights worth of sewing, but in the end, looks so pretty – plus can be passed on to the next sister, cousin, or friend’s baby shower! Of course, if a baby boy is on the way, switch to blues and greens, or if you’re waiting with bated breath to find out the sex of the baby – yellows will do the trick!

Felt Birthday Banner DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Do you know the cooking show Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee? I think sometimes crafting should be like that. I’m happy to cut out garlands for hours, but ask me to cut out felt letters and I might sigh loudly. This banner is really easy to make by purchasing pre-cut letters – and they come in all sorts of amazing colors. Using felt is great because there is no need to hem the edges, and gluing the letters on (instead of sewing) saves time too.

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.
