INTRODUCING THE MEET AND MAKE BOX

Ever wanted to attend a Meet and Make? Now you can with Meet and Make boxes! The kits come with everything you need to make your own DIY project. Perfect for hosting a girls night at home or as gifts.

I am so excited to announce that today I’m launching the Meet + Make Box!

When I introduced Meet + Make a few years ago, my goal was to host workshops that were so much fun that helped you make something you didn’t know you could make, something that you were so proud of, that you wanted to display it in your home. My other goal was to connect people in my community with other like-minded people because what’s better than leaving with an awesome project and a new friend.

I’ve been so flattered that each workshop sells out in in just a couple hours—even when we doubled the space to 100 people! Yet after each one I always hear from people that wanted to attended but couldn’t because of scheduling conflicts or because they simply don’t live in Orlando. That planted the idea of the Meet + Make box.

Make your own geometric painted wood panel and buy the first Meet + Make box here!

Everything you need to make a modern wall art piece is including in the Meet and Make box! Click through to learn more about these DIY kits.

Each box comes with everything you need to create a beautiful DIY project at home. When your box arrives you just follow along with the video tutorial, where you’ll get tips and tricks for making a great project. And since I didn’t want to skimp out on the community part, these boxes are an easy way to host your own workshop—in your living room, dorm room, or in your backyard. Just add snacks, friends, and maybe some bubbly and you have the perfect craft night!

Love these geometric wood panels! Buy all the supplies in an adorable box. Click through for details.

The boxes make great gifts! Send your bestie a box so they can create too! Buy your kit here.

EASY ABSTRACT PAINTED THROW PILLOWS

You don't need to be an artist to create pretty and unique throw pillows! Click through to watch the easy to follow video tutorial.

I adore color and simple DIY projects so I combined the two to create some pretty painted throw pillows for my pink sofa. This is really one of those projects that anyone can do. Really! You don’t need to be an artist to create great throw pillows. Just layer painted shapes to create an interesting pattern. And if you don’t love your design, you can always let it dry and paint over it too!

The pillow covers and inserts are from Ikea which means each one was only $7. You really can’t beat that! Since so many pillows I see are over $100, these are cheap enough to swap out each season. Or just when you get bored and want to change your room decor every other month like I do!

Time: 30 minutes + drying time

Supplies: solid pillow cover / pillow insert / fabric medium / craft paint / paint brushes / foam pouncers / wax paper or cardboard

Did you know you can turn any craft paint into fabric paint by adding fabric medium? Watch how easy it is to create your own pretty painted pillows in this video tutorial.

Loving these bright painted pillow covers! Such a cute and easy DIY project.

After making the pillow shown in the video I grabbed the smallest foam pouncer and dipped it in the black paint to create the dot patterns. If you don’t already have them, I recommend you pick up a set! I find so many uses for them (like my polka dot wooden tray) and they really are the easiest way to paint small circles.
