Easter tulip gift

Easter is almost here!! Whoop, whoop. I always love Easter… it feels like a promise of better weather and summer coming. Plus we celebrate Easter with both side of the family and a lot of food… So yeah, sounds like a great holiday to me.

My mom and I went to IKEA the other day and brought home these cute Easter dishtowels. I knew I wanted to create an Easter gift out of this… so here we go. An Easter tulip gift, perfect for giving your egg-hunt hostess.

What to do:

Place the planter in the middle of the dishtowel. Fold the first point into the planter and continue to do so. You will reach the point where your whole planter is covered with the dishtowel. Check if you like the folding and if something sticks out somewhere you can adjust this at this point. Cut a piece of ribbon and tie this around the planter to finish of the look. Add the tulips and ready is your Easter tulip gift.

How to make the best DIY pillow cases!

Don’t you just love these pillow cases above?! Thank god they are only 35 euro’s… wait, what? That's a lot of money that you could also save… or spend on chocolate, you know, whatever you prefer.

 I will show you how you can easily make these pillows yourself in 3 steps for less then 10 euro’s/dollars (pillow cases included)! (Rather buy the pillows? Get them here)

 

The great thing about this DIY is that you can print whatever you want on the pillows. You can make it for a friend, love, family or pretty much anyone else. Everybody needs pillow cases to sleep 😉

I made Star Wars (Darth Vader & Stormtrooper) pillow cases for my boyfriend. The result:

He absolutely loved them!

 

What you need:

– Two white pillow cases

– (T-shirt) Transfer paper

– A printer

– A flatiron

 

What to do:

1. Print your image/print/saying on the transfer paper. Make sure your print is a Word-file so it is in A-4 format (same format as the transfer paper).

2. Cut out as much of the white surroundings as you can, because the white parts will become yellow (in time).

3. Iron the image/print/saying onto the pillow (any specific instructions will be on the transfer paper package). Make sure you iron it on the exact place you want it to be on.

Awesome gift idea: Hot choco in a jar

This Christmas I wanted to make a couple of gifts myself, so of course; I went straight over to Pinterest. I searched and found A LOT of Do-It-Yourself ideas, but I was really busy, so I wanted to make something that was quick and easy. I found several gifts in a jar and absolutely loved the idea. At first I wanted to put all the ingredients for cupcakes in a jar, but I was only going to make 3 jars so that meant spending a lot of money on ingredients, but only using a little. Eventually I figured I wanted to put chocolate milk in a jar. Here's what I did to make it look festive in an easy, cheap and quick way!

  DSC_0084

What you need:

  • Hot chocolate
  • Little pieces of chocolate (I used white chocolate)
  • A big jar

Optional:

  • A small jar
  • Small chocolates (or other small yummie things)
  • 1 Candy cane, a red straw and a cute printable tag

 

How to make this:

Step 1 (optional): Put the small chocolates in the little jar.

Step 2: Pour the hot chocolate mix in the jar, but keep in mind that you need some space for the little pieces of chocolate!

Step 3: Pour some small chocolates on top of the hot chocolate mix.

Step 4: Top it off as you like! I used a candycane, a cute printable tag and a red straw.

Step 5: Write the instructions on the printable, so the reciever knows how to make some delicious hot choco. I wrote down how much hot milk 2 tablespoons needed (it was the direction that was on the original package).

We also had some walnuts from our own garden, so I gave a little bag of those as well!
