Watermelon Place Cards DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Did you know watermelons are 91% water? You will only need a cup of water to dip your paintbrush in for these watermelon place cards. Perfect for National Watermelon Day – August 3rd! These could also make a festive garland – instead of putting a name on the cards, just fold them over some string and use tape or glue to secure. Happy Watermelon Day! (PS – Watermelon favors!)

Gum Drop Ice Cream Cone Toppers DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Here’s a question for you: how do you make ice cream cones that don’t melt? Why, gum drops, of course. These cute little cones will last hours and are perfect for as cupcake toppers for any summer party. You could also slip them in little cello bags, throw a ribbon ‘round the stick and pass them out as favors. Don’t forget the cherry on top! (PS – An ice cream cone garland!)

4th of July Dynamite Garland DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Sticks of dynamite can light up any 4th of July party – or make a bright backdrop for a photobooth. My boys rarely comment on the crafts I make, but this one got a lot of love. I think they thought it had something to do with Angry Birds. Boom! (PS – More 4th of July Ideas!)

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!
