DIY Giant Gem Rings

Oh just some gigantic gem rings. I’ve been sitting on this DIY for a few months now, ever since I found these ice cube molds and KNEW I had to make some big ol’ rings. When ban.do sent me that gem-i-ifed mug, I knew I had to bust this one out. And wanna know what these bad boys are made out of? HOT GLUE! Yep, it’s true. And now i want to make all the things with hot glue. All of ‘em. But first, let’s make some jewels.

The Making of Studio DIY HQ

The Making of Studio DIY HQ

Lately, life has been a little crazed, to say the least. With a wedding coming up in two months, a big behind the scenes project and the start of Halloween costume shoots… sleep is a hot commodity around these parts! While I play a little catch up before heading to Chicago for Lauren’s wedding tomorrow, I thought it would be fun to share a bit of the total insanity that happened in the studio before it had its pretty debut! This is as real as it gets, folks. And frankly, these photos are closer to what the studio looks like on a daily basis. (Like yesterday, after a 7 hour shoot!) I like to call it organized chaos. Jeff likes to call it “Are you ever going to clean up?”

DIY Ice Cream Cone Treat Box

Well folks, it’s official. Today is the real last day of summer. Please excuse me while I go cry in a corner. Though I will admit, I’ve already bought some pumpkin granola (YUM.) and am actually ready for it to not be 90 degrees outside everyday. Regardless, I had to bid summer farewell the only way I know how. With ice cream. I whipped up these cute ice cream boxes with my Cricut and they can be filled with all sorts of little goodies! Perfect as party favors or for holding gift cards and other little gifts! Everything is better when gifted inside of an ice cream cone, so let’s get to it.
