Mini Flower Cakes

Spend an afternoon learning how to make these beautiful mini flower cakes in this tutorial by Jenny Cookies. With some effort and prep time, you can serve these at your next Sunday afternoon luncheon. Read here for the list of class ingredients and tools you need. And of course, since it is online you can modify for a gluten free or sugar free diet. Set aside a few hours on a rainy summer afternoon to get creative with cake decorating. The mini size of the cakes makes this a great beginner course. Believe it or not, you can actually make cakes that look this gorgeous at home.

Chalk Paste Stenciling

Two Girls and a Goat, local Tennessee gals, have started a Chalk Couture group. They created a video on chalk paint paste techniques with stenciling. They are very vibrant and energetic. We laughed and laughed together at the Nancy Louise Vintage Market. Their projects are always colorful and lively. If you are interested in seeing a demo on chalk paint paste, this is a great place to start.

How to Make Terrariums

This terrarium making tutorial, also by the talented Jenny Cookies, makes it very easy to create terrariums by showing examples step by step. The supply list is inexpensive but the results are amazing. Succulents cost less than $1 a piece. She also tells you how to care for the terrariums so they last. She hosted this tutorial at a brunch party. When doing this on a rainy day indoors, cover your table with newspaper or do this under your covered porch so you can sweep the dirt away.

 

4th of July Serving Tray and Ribbon Wreath

Brittany Young, the Certified Celebrator, has two video tutorials available on Facebook if you want to make home décor items for your house this 4th of July. I love both the Patriotic Serving Tray and the Red, White, and Blue Ribbon Wreath. Both are farmhouse style appropriate and items you will want to re-use year after year. The Ribbon Wreath is a wonderful way to use scraps of material you may have stashed away. As an added benefit, Brittany’s positive energy is contagious.

Everyone pencil a workshop in your schedule and have a lovely weekend. Thank you ladies so much for sharing your photos and your talents.
