has long been in the DIY fever and today shares a few of her favorite DIY ideas for children and families that she has already tested:
Ice cream invitation cards for children's birthday
I have the idea for the ice cream invitation cards at Pinterest
found and implemented for Lotta's fourth birthday. The invitation cards were very well received everywhere. The kids loved them and even played with them later. Also on Instagram
they became one of my most popular pictures ever! No wonder, because these invitation cards are just totally individual, beautiful to look at and so easy to make. I also had a lot of fun doing handicrafts myself, to be honest, I didn't even let Lotta help. Oops. You can find my step-by-step instructions here
including a stylish template for the ice cream invitation cards. Have fun with it!
Lotta's father (and my friend) Nils also made the piñata for Lotta's fourth birthday. The idea for this comes from the book "Playtime. 25 imaginative projects to play with and create"
* by blogger Merrilee Liddiard
(published by Christophorus Verlag). We generally make something from this book quite often, because the ideas and the instructions are just super stylish and cool; Just like me, the author has very high design standards. Not kitschy at all, very modern and yet always extremely child-friendly! I just love the book and can only recommend it from the bottom of my heart.
Ikea IVAR hack
I got the idea for the IVAR hack on the blog of Prettypegs
found. (The company idea is great, by the way: Prettypegs offers various feet with which you can easily customize your Ikea furniture ... stop by if you are interested in the topic!) Anyway, I was looking for a nice cupboard for Lotta's nursery and came across Prettypegs, which are also really great Blog
to have. I thought the IVAR was great and we simply recreated it and papered it on the inside. Also super simple, individual and sooo beautiful!
Easy unicorn costume
This costume was a hit on a children's birthday party that Lotta was a guest at earlier this year. The birthday child's mom has made a little unicorn costume for each child. She also found the idea for this on Pinterest. (Where else.) The costume consisted of different colored tulle, which was sewn together and made into a "tail" with a rubber band. The hard-working woman has used simple hairbands as the headboard, to each of which she has attached a "horn" consisting of a cardboard tube with golden construction paper. The horn was decorated with glitter and again with tulle. In any case, the children totally celebrated the costumes and were allowed to take them home as gifts. Fittingly, this children's birthday was even shortly before Mardi Gras! Great thing. On Pinterest you will find various instructions for unicorn costumes ... including ours Pinboard "Little Costumes"
