Temporary Tattoo Easter Eggs

March 30, 2018

This year I wanted to try an unconventional Easter egg decorating idea and temporary tattoos on eggs sounded interesting. It’s an easy & mess free last minute Easter egg idea, plus it’s pretty fun!

For your own DIY temporary tattoo Easter eggs, you just need 7 items. Bonus, you probably already have most of them!


Super Easy DIY Photography Props

March 19, 2018

So, we’re always on the lookout for fun & quirky props to add into product photography and our decor in general. We both really like brightly hued vintage items, but unless you just luck out when finding them, they tend to be kind of expensive. Lately I’ve decided to start painting some cute little cheap items to use in photos. I already think painting is basically the answer for everything so I can’t believe I haven’t done this project sooner.

I bought a few little plastic toy animals at Walmart & Target and some unpainted wooden items at Hobby Lobby. I’m a huge fan of cheap DIY projects that are also quick so this was right up my alley. I bought a few small bottles of acrylic paint at Michael’s and used paint brushes I already had.
