Paper Flower Bouquet DIY

Today I’m so excited to share a special DIY I designed for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. If you’ve ever visited a child in the hospital, you know that bringing in gifts or decorations can be tricky. Many hospitals have restrictions on what is allowed  into the pediatric floor  – no plants, no flowers, no latex, no food or candy, no stuffed animals, no used toys. So, this DIY is a great solution! It’s perfectly safe and will brighten up a hospitalized child’s room. It breaks my heart that this year one million children will spend Christmas in the hospital. So I love that CMN Hospitals is encouraging everyone to donate $5 in honor of these kids. To give, just click here and follow the steps. All donations to CMN Hospitals stay local and each hospital can choose to spend the funds however they need them most. CMN Hospitals raise funds for 170 children’s hospitals in North America. Together, they provide $3.4 billion in charitable care every year.

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!
