I made these yesterday for some friends and they were a huge hit (if I may say so myself..). Really, how can you go wrong with nutella, marzipan, and chocolate? You can’t, and the sprinkles definitely don’t hurt either.
I was scrolling through Pinterest looking for party food, and saw these, which I’ve been meaning to try. Here in Germany, marshmallows aren’t easy to come by, so I had to improvise a little. I added some honey to make my rice krispies a little sticky, and I created little vessels for my rice krispie/nutella mixture out of marzipan. They turned out super yummy, and cute too. We all know the best desserts are fun to look at. Here’s the recipe:
This is the easiest DIY ever. Really, you probably don’t need these instructions, but I am so happy with how these turned that out I wanted to share them with you.
I saw some great flower planters in a shop on my block, but at €9 each that can add up pretty quickly. So I went a mission to my local art store and got some supplies to spice up some standard pots.
What you need:
some planting pots
painter’s tape or masking tape
at least two colors of acrylic paint. I love the simple look of white and another color, but get creative if you feel like it!
You’ll want a clean surface on your pots, so wipe them down with a damp paper towel and let dry.
Paint your first layer! I painted my pots completely white, using two layers of paint to get a nice solid white base. Let this layer dry.
After your first layer is dry you can decide how you want to add more color. Use your painters tape to create a design. I kept mine classic and painted a big stripe of green along the top.
Let the paint dry and then plant some seeds!
I hope you like these as much as my cat does!
I’ve been working on a pattern that is really different than anything I’ve done before, and I’m loving it!
I started with this sketch of a girl wearing a flower wreath and I knew I wanted to create some sort of folk art/floral border. Then the next day we went to the DDR museum and I saw this great 1960′s retro wall paper.
I went home and started sketching different borders and frames, trying to figure out how to put my sketch into a repeating pattern.
And here it is! The completed pattern. I’ve been tweaking the colors all night, but I feel pretty good about it at this point. It felt good to get out of my comfort zone and use a layout that’s unusual for me.
