DIY Abstract Watercolor Tutorial from Grow Creative here. I’m always looking for easy projects that kids as well as adults can do with good results and this is one of them. This is so much easier than it looks and is really run because you get to dribble rubber cement all over the watercolor paper.

DIY Easy 20 Minute Sponge Stamped Wall Art Tutorial from I Spy DIY here. Big canvases are so cheap at Micheals i.e. sometimes they’re sold in packs, on sale or you can use your 40% coupon. My walls are covered by own art, large framed photographs, modern quilts I’ve made, and a grouping of old silver (sterling and plate) round platters from flea markets and Goodwill (so cheap).

DIY St. Patrick’s Day Ombre Cake. St. Patrick’s Day is March 17th and I live near a city that holds one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the US with a selected “Colleen”, so St. Patrick’s Day is huge here. Tutorial from I am Baker here. *No recipe but you can a get a recipe for cake anywhere or use a mix.

DIY Beginner Level Mixed Metal Studded Cuff Tutorial from Thanks, I Made It here. As in all her tutorials Erin provides links for materials and very clear instructions for this DIY. I know I’ve mentioned her Morse Code necklace tutorial a few times, but it is still one of my easy but thoughtful go-to gifts.
