DIY Confetti Bowl Tutorial from V Juliet here. This is kind of like regular paper mache, but I think more fun as you aren’t laying strip after strip of paper covered in paste. I have a question in about how many layers were actually done to make this bowl. Will edit the post if I get an answer.

DIY Roundup of Everything Pantone from inspiration & realisation here. Lots of great DIYs, inspiration, links, etc… And yes, like Donatella, I am not a fan of Pantone’s color of the year: EMERALD. I have a theory that we love and decorate with colors we look good in. I look horrible in emerald.
DIY Two Styles of Leather Braided Bracelets from Maryjanes and Galoshes here. Really easy and cheap DIY. If you can do a simple plain braid you can make this bracelet. *Charms hanging off jump rings braided into the leather would also be cute. There are other clasps you could use, like a magnetic clasp, to make this bracelet even more polished looking: see Teahab’s Guide to Clasps One and Two here.
