Snacks on Display

Another Monday. So sad, we know, but we have a colorful post to brighten your day! Here is a super easy and cheap little craft for adorable snack holders for your next party, girls’ night, picnic in the park… or whenever the need for cut snacking strikes!

You’ll need: paper plates, decorative (or plain Scotch) tape, extra ribbons/strings- anything you want to decorate the container with), a ruler, scissors (regular and/or decorative), paper clips, and a pencil.



Step 1: Trim the edge of the plate with either regular or decorative scissors.


Step 2: Turn the plate upside down and draw this grid to create a square in the middle of the plate.



Step 3: Cut a slit in every other line around the square like this:



Step 4: Fold the sides up around the square, leaving it as the base of the box.



Step 5: Fold the excess part of each flap around to the next side and paper clip it like so:





Step 6: Tape the sides down, remove the paper clips, and decorate however you’d like. Fill with snacks and enjoy!



Here’s hoping this week will actually feel like spring!

More Pink! More Garland!

Welcome back to Frill Your Room with Love! We couldn’t resist posting another Valentine’s Day DIY decoration this week, and this flower garland is just too adorable (and simple!) not to post about. Enjoy!

Supplies you’ll need: stapler, coffee filters, twine, food coloring, and container to mix food coloring in


Step 1: Fold coffee filters in half, in half again, and in half a third time, so they look like this:


Step 2: Mix food coloring and water together in the container (we used a styrofoam plate):


Step 3: Dip the folded coffee filters in the container and let sit until dry (we let them dry overnight):


Step 4: Once dry, take the coffee filters and ruffle them up to make them look like flowers:


Step 5: Take the pointed end of the coffee filter and fold over the twine then staple:


Keep attaching your flowers (about a stapler’s width apart) until you reach your desired length. Although these are intended to decorate for Valentine’s Day, you’ll probably want to keep them up all year long!

A String of Hearts

Here comes one of our favorite holidays for decorating and crafting!! We are putting together directions on how to make some sweet cards, gifts, and decorations for Valentine’s Day. Today we present this simple and darling heart garland.

Supplies you’ll need: hole puncher, twine, type of glue (we used a hot glue gun), scissors, patterned Valentine’s paper (it can be scraps!)


Step 1: Cut out hearts of all shapes and sizes from the patterned Valentine’s paper. Go ahead and layer them up! The more layers the better.


Step 2: Hole punch each corner of the hearts so that they can be connected with twine later.


Step 3: Put the twine through the holes and use your judgement on the spacing.


Hang up your new garland anywhere you’d like and to celebrate in style!!


Check back this week for more Valentine’s Day crafts and decorations!
