This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Gorilla Glue Company. All opinions are 100% mine. We've seen geometric decorations on the party scene for a couple of years now.

As a lover of metallics and geometric crafts alike, I'm always drawn to simple DIY crafts that can help me inject a little himmeli-inspired vibe into my parties and celebrations.

DIY Geometric Himmeli Party Decor

DIY Geometric Himmeli Party Decor

We're now stocking oh-so-pretty gold foil party straws in the shop, and apart from their obvious function as drink straws, they also make oh-so-pretty geometric decorations for our party tables, party backdrops or as hanging decor to embellish any party or home space.  And since wedding season is here, I decided to craft a few simple decor pieces to show you how versatile they are as a party prop! ;)

If you follow on Instagram or Snapchat (BirdsParty), you'd have seen sneak peeks of my home office makeover, which includes some DIY projects using marble contact paper. And copper tape. And marble contact paper with copper tape. Yes, marble contact paper, along with copper tape; are two of my current obsessions when it comes to DIY party decor.  And these plate chargers are some of the (many) fruits of that obsession. You're welcome ;)

I wish Pinterest was around when I got married.  The amount of fun DIY inspiration and creative ideas...oh my! No matter how little or how much you're actually doing yourself, nothing beats getting stuck in, hands on. If nothing else, simply to have a keepsake or fun memory of something made with love, by you!  And being able to say in years to come - "Oh this?! I made it!" ;)

DIY Wedding Table Number with Free Printables

DIY Wedding Table Number with Free Printables

As part of my recent wedding story for HGTV , I got to play with spray paint and create my very own mini pedestal stands. I had found some vintage pink saucers in a flea marked, and all I needed was to spray paint some ceramic candlesticks to match.  I have to say I was hooked - Not only was it easy to make, so pretty, but also way more inexpensive than buying individual stands. Now I have all sorts of plans for making larger DIY ceramic cake and cupcake stand - So watch this space! ;)

DIY Pink Candles and Glitter Candle Holders

DIY Pink Candles and Glitter Candle Holders

I recently worked on another super fun shoot for HGTV (hope to share details soon!) and had some leftover materials and a burst of inspiration (not to mention a bunch of glass yogurt pots I had been collection for yonks...). This is how these pink, glittered, candle cuties came to be. They'd be perfect for those lazy summer evenings - Imagine how they'd flicker and glisten on your tabletops or patios. Pretty picture, right?!  :) Super easy to make too (I used melt and pour wax!). Get the full crafty tutorial below.
