6 DIYs to Try This Weekend

Weekend DIYs // Fruit Macarons,  Leather Envelopes, and More

This week was a good one for DIYs. I mean look at that leather envelope project and those painted fruit macarons! Lots of cool stuff to make over the weekend.

Here are six DIYs to try this weekend…

1. the most amazing DIY fruit macarons from Sugar & Cloth

2. ice cream sandwich donuts from Studio DIY

3. the cutest mini DIY leather envelopes from Mamie Boude

4. textured clay drink stirrers project for summer entertaining that I made

5. DIY crowns made from recycled cereal boxes that I made for Momtastic

6. grapefruit guava and rum sorbet recipe from Artful Desperado

P.S. I’m headed to New York on Sunday (just for the day) to celebrate my friend Kelly‘s bridal shower, and I couldn’t be more excited. If you have any must-stop places to recommend, let me know. It’s a quick trip, but I’m sure I can fit in some good eats (aka donuts or a little bistro / cafe) or a little shopping. So, I’d love your suggestions if you have any.

Have a great weekend.

No problem! I lived in NY for five years in a couple of different neighborhoods so if you want recommendations anywhere specific, just let me know. Have fun!

Awesome! Thanks for the suggestion Robin!


If you’ll be in or around Greenpoint, Brooklyn, go to Peter Pan! Best donuts ever.

Good choices, Amy. Love those two as well.


I love the fruit macaroons and envelopes!

Thanks Lasmin. I’m excited for a quick change of scenery. Even if it’s only for a day.


Oh my god, these are really really cute! I might have to try at least one this weekend! Possibly the leather envelopes!

I spent a week in NY a couple years back but I don’t have any suggestions as I’m terrible with names and directions :/ The city is beautiful though and I am sure anything you do will be tons of fun and very revigorating! Hope you have a great trip!
