St Patrick's Day Clover Crown

Yet another craft inspired by a vintage holiday item - I saw this St Patrick's Day postcard and couldn't help but make a crepe paper clover crown! I was surprised how quickly it came together - the clovers are so much simpler to make than flowers. For full instructions, see the full post on Oh Happy Day.

Majorette Party Hats

Earlier this year I watched Rudolph's Shiny New Year for the first time - overall it was a bit weird and hard to follow, but the opening credit sequence (start watching the link above at the 2:03 mark) was really cute and inspiring. It's actually what inspired these majorette style party hats! See the full tutorial on Oh Happy Day.

Song of the Sea: Art & Garlands

Ever since I saw it last week, I've been obsessed with the animated film Song of the Sea. It is so beautifully animated, it took my breath away. The story, characters, and soundtrack are just as beautiful and I left the theatre feeling so inspired and full of love and magic. I love that it continues to inspire my ideas for design and craft projects - I just can't get it out of my brain. Please go see it if you haven't already!

When I'm not daydreaming about Song of the Sea, I've been busy apartment hunting and imagining each place furnished with our belongings. To keep track of dreamy DIY projects, furniture, and art I usually pin my inspiration to the Pinterest board I call live.

I recently discovered that Minted has the most amazing selection of art; it's so easy to browse - you can sort by shape, size, style, and colour to find the perfect piece. You can even arrange your favourites into gallery wall style boards! I've named my board above Song of the Sea as a tribute to the film. I loved browsing through all the artists' work and gathering a small collection of art that makes me so happy and inspired.

Once we decide on an apartment and settle in, I can't wait to put a gallery wall together. In the mean time though, I've made this simple garland inspired by my Song of the Sea board on Minted. Click through to see the full instructions.

I am a sucker for anything I can make into a badge/ribbon. I even have a full board of them on Pinterest! Take a look at these Valentine badges I made over at Oh Happy Day.

DIY Anniversary Gifts

It's probably pretty obvious that I love a good theme, so I had a lot of fun brainstorming ideas for the wedding anniversary gifts I put together for this post over on Oh Happy Day. I focused on paper (1 year), wood (5 years), and silver (25 years) but a lot of the traditional anniversary gifts would be pretty fun to do - four years is fruit and flowers, six years is candy ... so many possibilities!
