Hi there, it’s Jenny from Hank + Hunt with a fun and super easy diy today! As soon as I thought of making these I got a huge kick out of naming them Party Animals. Hilarious, but if you hear groaning…it’s coming from my house. Regardless of how cheesy the name is, these turn out awesome.

DIY Ribbon Wands Posted on August 9, 2010 by Christina Looking for a unique wedding send-off? Try ribbon wands! You can make them yourself for under $1 each and they are a nice little take home gift for your guests (your flower girls will LOVE ‘em!!) Ribbon wands are waved by wedding guests as the bride and groom exit the ceremony and/or the reception. They look gorgeous waving in the breeze – and the ones I’m going to show you how to make sound lovely too.
Dictionary Tealights by CarolinaCottage on Etsy Here are some fun & funky tealight holders.They are decoupaged with pages from an old dictionary. I removed a bit of the paper from both sides so that they look even older and more light shines through the paper, which is printed on both sides. You receive a set of four tealight holders that are protected with 3 coats of varnish and packed in a glossy, white gift box. ** I will be receiving several dictionaries soon. If you want a particular word or image on your tea lights, please let me know and I will see what I can do.
This year I made this adorable gift for my boyfriend. On a deck of cards, I thought of 52 reasons why I love him soo much (I could have easily come up with 1000 <3) I typed them out and cut them up. Some cards I glued the white paper on and cut out patterned hearts.
Since the new year has started I’ve been trying to think of ways to be more kind to my self. Especially when that nasty gremlins try to creep in and stump me. I remembered this origami star video on You Tube and had to get them involved in my plan. I thought it would be fun to make a whole bunch with kind words and “you are….” phrases inside.
Uncanny Cork Vases & Containers Tutorial Almost two years ago, I bookmarked a wonderful tutorial from Design Sponge for a cork lamp. I just loved the idea and wanted to translate it in another way. But for some reason, I kind of forgot about it as time went on, and then this weekend when I was rinsing out some cans to put into the recycling bin, I remembered.
Brooch bouquet I’ve been reading a lot about brooch bouquets lately, but the one in this photo gallery has an especially sweet story. Bride Jenna — located in Boundary Creek, Canada, and blogger of My Bridal Bouquet — was given her mother’s, grandmother’s and great-grandmother’s heirloom rings.
