i didn’t have a chance to do a diy for this week since i’ve been traveling, so i thought i’d share some inspiration that i have saved with you guys…all projects i want to – and hopefully will – try soon!
one of our readers told me about these moroccan lanterns and i love them! via design sponge.
a couple of our readers tried the tie-dye cupcakes we posted a couple weeks back and the results are beautiful! these would be great for easter or a spring party :)
one of our fp girls sent me these photos the other day, saying she was inspired by my vintage loves bag post last week me to make these cupcakes! she made them for the staff and customers at roosevelt field this weekend. don’t they look amazing?! i totally want to try to make some.
here’s how to make them!
buy a box of yellow cake mix and separate the batter into 6 bowls. add food coloring for red, orange, yellow, blue, purple and green. fill the cupcake liners with a little bit of each color – but don’t mix the colors! and there you go… tie dye cupcakes :)
how cool are these tie dye bags? we are using these as packaging for the vintage loves collection and i think they are so beautiful – plus they were made with love by some of our fp girls right here at the home office.
dye in shades of fuchsia, orange, yellow, purple, turquoise and green!
bags of various sizes and lots of rubber bands!
various tying techniques…
time to dye!
they let the bags sit overnight so the dye sets in.
next step – rinsing!
hang me out to dry…
and… ta da!
i love it! i have a plain white free people bag that i think needs to be tie dye :)
