Easy Floral-Filled Lanterns

Make these gorgeous floral topiary spring lanterns with dollar store flowers and foam cones!

It seems like every January I find myself crafting with flowers - faux flowers that is! I think it is because all my flowers outside are officially dead, despite my best efforts to protect them from the occasional freezing nights here in San Antonio. So when Oriental Trading asked me to make something creative with these foam cones for the Supply of the Month Challenge, I couldn't resist covering them in flowers! These floral topiary-filled lanterns are the perfect way to bring a little spring indoors, even in the middle of January.

Design Improvised Turns 7!


It's official - Design Improvised turned the ripe old age of 7 this week! I nearly missed it - after a relaxing Christmas vacation, I dove right into planning and projects for 2018. But I couldn't let the milestone go by without a little celebrating, mainly because 7 years in the blogging world feels like a long time! In fact, I've now been a blogger longer than I was a business consultant in my previous life. To me, that's a big deal. Seven years into this wild journey of creativity and self-discovery and I've never felt more fulfilled.

In honor of this special milestone, here are 7 things I would've never been able to do at my old job!

DIY New Years 2018 Balloons!

The perfect DIYt New Years Eve decoration - confetti filled number balloons with a champagne balloon weight!

It's my final blog post of the year and I'm going out with a pop, clink, and a fizz with these 2018 New Years balloons, complete with a champagne balloon weight! Because really, what more do you need to celebrate NYE than a balloon and a bottle of bubbly? At least, for me that sounds like a party!
