Happy Monday, lovelies! Dropping by this morning to share a couple of super-rad (tooting my own horn?) DIYs I did for HGTV’s summer how-to extravaganza. They’re both projects with techniques that I’ve been wanting to try forever but have been too chicken until now. And as it turns out, they were both totally doable and turned out brilliantly.

These nail polish marbled votive cups are hanging out on my dining table, looking all summery and beachy. Best thing about these? You might have all the materials you need right at home. Check out the full tutorial here.

And if you’re heading to the farmer’s market this summer, be like the cool kids and get into indigo shibori dying. I made a couple of tie dye indigo market totes and they are now the only thing I want to carry groceries in. Seriously, I got addicted to shibori and you must have noticed my obsession with it here on the blog (evidence here, here, and here). For the skinny on the market totes, head over here!
