We did it! We hit 100k followers on Instagram! Thank you, dear readers, for being so loyal and making this possible. To celebrate, we have a special DIY post for you. From giant floral monogram lettersbeautiful chair decor and floral table numbers, the possibilities are endless with this whimsical floral letter project. Plus you can also use these same steps to make a DIY Floral Crown!


Floral Design: Loop Flowers.  Photos by Christina McNeill.




Materials needed:

– Wax flower (one letter at 10-12″ tall is about 2.5 bunches)
Galvanized steel wire (19 gauge)
Green floral wire (22 gauge)
– 1 roll green floral tape
Wire cutters
Floral shears
Ribbon for hanging (we used a beautiful silk ribbon)



Step 1: Take galvanized steel wire and hand form the letter you want to make. (Tip: Some letters like “C” are going to be easy, while others like “A” may require you to join two pieces of wire together. For our “K” we used the thinner gauge floral wire to join 2 pieces.)

Step 2: Prep your flower material. Cut wax flower blooms with your floral shears into roughly 3″ lengths.

Step 3: Gather 2- 3 stems of cut wax flower and make a little bundle in your hand. Take the floral tape and and wrap the blooms onto the wire letter while pulling the tape tightly around the wire and back onto itself. You can leave a small portion of the stems sticking out below the tape.

Step 4: Repeat Step 3 until you’ve covered the length of your wire letters. Each bundle should overlap so that you cover the previous bundles stems.

Step 5: Getting it ready to hang. Make a loop with your green floral wire and attach it in the center of your letter. String a beautiful coordinating ribbon through your loop and hang on a chair back, on a door, or wall! (Tip: Some letters will require more finesse than others to hang straight, so make sure you think about gravity and where makes most sense to place your loop.)



We’d love to see your DIY Floral Letters.  Share them with us for a chance to be featured on Instagram!

Talk about timing! I scheduled this fun feature, only to learn that the venue had abruptly closed its doors, leaving hundreds of couples out of their deposits – or for some the full balance! – and without a venue. What a wedding nightmare! My heart just breaks for all of those couples who are affected, and I was reminded of my sister’s and friend‘s respective weddings that were impacted by the flooding in Colorado last year, and I know that wedding vendors really rallied and helped to save tons of weddings in those weeks. Looking at my Twitter feed, it’s obvious that the same is happening here, with incredibly generous and talented people offering their services at hugely discounted rates to the couples left in the lurch by reBar’s sudden closing.

In an effort to help, we’ll be updating this post with the names and contact info of those vendors here, and if there’s anyone I missed, please leave your info in the comments. And if you aren’t a vendor but you still want to help, there’s an Indiegogo campaign set up to help couples afford a new wedding, as well as a Give Forward page to help the employees of reBar who are left without a paycheck.

Did you know that Minted has a collection of totally delightful and affordable wall art prints? They’re available in every size from postcard to poster, plus you have the option to choose from seven types of frames (including reclaimed barn wood!). And right now they have a really special promotion going on for Mother’s Day…

When I was at Alt Summit earlier this year, I had the chance to meet Christy Turlington Burns, and to hear about Every Mother Counts, a program she founded with the aim of making pregnancy and childbirth safer for women around the world. I learned that 287,000 women die each year as a result of complications in pregnancy and childbirth, that the United States ranks 50th in maternal mortality, and that 90% of all these deaths are preventable. As a mother, this campaign really resonates with me, and why I think it’s so awesome that Minted supports EMC by donating 2% of the proceeds from all art print sales. Even better? For Mother’s Day, Minted will donate 20% of the proceeds from art prints when you use the code SNIPPETEMC.

There are lots of custom wall art options, a great idea for gifts, as well as limited edition prints of beautiful photos, paintings, and drawings. Here are my five favorites…

one / two / three / four / five

If you’re ordering custom art Mother’s Day gifts, order today (4/28) to get it in time with ground shipping. (For all other Mother’s Day orders, check out the holiday shipping calendar.) And remember to use the promo code SNIPPETEMC so that 20% of the proceeds will go to supporting a really amazing cause.
