DIY: Mini Bunting for Cake or Flower Pot

Holy Moly Macadamia Nuts! I never knew I loved these nuts until my first trip to Hawaii! Those are the BEST little suckers ever. Thanks Kiyo and family for sending us the BEST chocolate covered macadamia nuts! That was the best thing we have EVER got in the mail!

{{thank goodness the mail man didn’t eat them}}}


If you are looking for that perfect last minute valentine’s gift I have just the thing for you. I personally love getting and giving greenery as a gift. It’s something that will last a long time if it’s cared for properly . 

You know I love flag bunting! I swear it’s the one thing that will make my toes tingle and my heart smile. Who woulda thunk it!

Let’s hurry along because it’s already nighty night time and you need to see this before the morning!!!

The ingredients you will need are:

Martha Stewart glue gun, 2 wooden skewers, Martha Stewart all purpose scissors, Martha Stewart Baker’s twine, and some little triangles cut out of fabric. You can get all of the Martha Stewart products at Michael’s Art’s and Crafts.

Start by laying out your flags they way you want them. Make sure to put the “good” side facing down so you can glue the twine to the back.

Add a little line of hot glue to the back of the flags. Gently press the twine into the hot glue before it dries.

SERIOUSLY…. How cute is this!!! It’s super simple and definitely adds a whimsical, fun touch to any plant or cake. Have fun with this! This is totally a project you can afford to do for EACH holiday!!! Don’t you just love all of these succulents? I bought ALL of them at Home Depot!

Happy Tuesday Jaderbugs!

It was a beautiful day today. The sun was shining. I was OFF. I rearranged our living room. I DANCED my BUTT off while doing this. I ate a bowl of fruity pebbles.

I wish I could do all of these things EVERY day.  I am ready for a new and wonderful day and I am trying to figure out what my theme song will be. After I rearranged the living room I realized we needed more “greenery”. What was a girl to do? Time to get out the plants that even I can’t kill. Just joking, (not really).

Let’s start making out terrarium!

You will need: a fish bowl, succulents (i get mine from Home Depot) and they are super cheap there, moss (i LOVE super moss), rocks and potting soil (the kind for these types of plants).

Line the bottom of your bowl with rocks or glass beads. Anything to make the draining process better.

Fill up your bowl with your cactus potting mix by Miracle Gro.

Well whatduhya know! We are almost done!

Look how pretty this is! It reminds me of the moss plant I got from Moss Rocks! Remember, he was on the Martha Stewart show after my segment! You HAVE to check out his stuff! UH-Maz-ING! OH I just realized it is in the picture at the top of this post! Look how cute it is! Thanks again David!

After you put every thing in it’s new home you can clean your plants using a small brush.  Make sure you lightly water until soil is moist. Don’t forget to place in a spot that gets plenty of sunlight and you can water it once a week!

There you have it jaderbugs! These suckers usually last pretty long if you don’t tend to them that much, haha. My little moss rock has been going strong since I got it.

Sending you big warm waxy hugs,
