DIY “Cherry Pop Tart” Pincushion for Lorelai Gilmore’s Birthday

It’s that time of year again! The wonderful (albeit fictional) Lorelai Gilmore’s birthday has made its way around again, so of course I have to celebrate πŸ™Œ For those of you who love Gilmore Girls as much as I do, you’ll know how much THEY love Pop Tarts, so it’ll be no surprise why I’ve made them yet another focus of a GG post.

If you’re not as familiar with the show and am wondering why I chose to make a pincushion (other than the fact that I LOVE making them: I’ve already made an ice cream sandwich design, and a Burn Book design, a la Mean Girls!), that’s because when Lorelai first had Rory she used to make all of her clothes.

Throughout the show, she occasionally still hems and alters their clothes throughout the series – and I’m willing to bet she would have LOVED to have had a pincushion that looked like one of her favourite treats! πŸ˜‹ Anyway, keep on reading to find out how to make your own! πŸ™Š

DIY Animal Crossing Money Bag Door Stop

I CANNOT believe I am finally sharing this post! I’ve had this DIY project in mind for well over a year – probably over two – and I can’t believe I finally got around to making it πŸ™Œ

Apparently, I’ve got a thing for novelty door stops. They were some of the first fun decor pieces I bought when we moved out – a melting ice cream cone, a red high heel, and a melting chocolate bar – and then I shared a 3-in-1 door stop DIY post back in 2018, but I am *super* excited about this one!

I got it finished at the perfect time too, as it’s been ONE WHOLE YEAR since Animal Crossings New Horizons was released! Can you believe it?! Wasn’t the world such a completely different place last year? Everyone was playing Animal Crossing; it was amazing to see. This game that I’ve been playing since my age was still a single digit was suddenly all over the internet and the news.

It gave everyone a coping mechanism when we needed it the most, and it was so amazing to see. Of course, the world is far from perfect, and Animal Crossing will never be forgotten, but the world still seems so incredibly different one year later. Anyway, enough blabbering on – let me tell you how YOU can make this super cute DIY Animal Crossing bell bag door stop! βœ‚οΈ

DIY Rugrats “Reptar Bar” Place Cards

In case you missed the news, Rugrats is making a comeback! With the original voice cast! As a 90’s kid and a big lover of all TV shows, I obviously had to celebrate this incredible news (because no, I am NOT tired of reboots/revivals – bring them ALL on πŸ™Œ), so I made a DIY project inspired by an iconic item from the show: a Reptar Bar.

Whilst I made a craft project this time around, I am definitely up for making a homemade version of a Reptar Bar in the future if you guys would like to see a recipe of that, so just let me know – and I will try my *best* to make one that turns your tongue green, like the jingle says!

Long-time readers will know how much I love making DIY place cards, and I’m glad that this is my first design of the year as I’m pretty happy with it ☺️ It was a lot of fun to make AND hiding underneath that yellow wrapper is a mint chocolate bar, since Reptar Bars were brown, but known to have “green stuff” in them. I thought that was pretty clever of me πŸ˜‰Anyway, onto the project!
