Gettin' my paint stick on

Hold on to your DIY meter because it's about to go off the chart. I recently became so inspired by this Pinterest image taken of an Anthropologie window display...those peeps are geniuses.
And I just knew I had to create something bright & fun. So I gave it a whirl this weekend and found myself lost in a sea of rich and vibrant colors, which is perfect for welcoming spring. Here she is in all her paint stick glory....
This pretty little lantern is the perfect inexpensive party decor for above your food table or tree adornment for an outdoor soiree. Here is a little DIY action for those of you who want to get your paint stick painting party on...

 And if making it a lantern doesn't work out, you can always use it as a crown...just ask our lil' prince Olly or his trusty side kick, Buck ...

*And I must send a thank you shout out to my local home improvement store for so kindly giving me paint sticks....however; you can always buy some here if your store isn't as awesome.

So now I am off to do anything that doesn't involve painting sticks even though it was a labor of love. Is anyone else inspired by the paint stick craze or cheerful colors? Let me know what you think. Thanks again for those of you who voted yesterday for best DIY blog  y'all are the best! I can't wait to see you crazy kids tomorrow.


  1. I JUST saw the Anthropologie inspiration on pinterest yesterday and here you are with a DIY that's even better than the original!!! I love it, I'm pinning it and I'm wondering if I get to vote for you daily on Homies or my cheer leading duties are finito? "go Courtney go!"

  2. Ack!! Your lantern is gorgeous!! I think the best part is your color pairings - so lovely.

  3. Thanks so much! Sara you're the sweetest, you can only vote once ;.) love y'all
