Pineapple Bookends Made out of Plaster

DIY Pineapple bookends made from plaster | Popcorn and ChocolateThese pineapple bookends make me very happy. Why might you ask? Well this was a DIY in the works for, oh I don’t know, maybe a year? There was so many obstacles to overcome. Bookends had to be, well, heavy. And I had to have a pineapple shaped mold, which are not very easy to find. These pineapple bookends put me through the loop but I finally, finally figured them out!DIY plaster pineapple bookends | Popcorn and Chocolate
By using plaster to make the pineapples that means that they would definitely be heavy enough¬†to support books. And if I was using plaster then I would need a silicone mold for the actual pineapple shape. Well after much research I learned how to make my own silicone mold! I had to borrow a set of hands (thanks Rose!) to help with the project but I accomplished just what I wanted – a pair of beautiful plaster pineapple bookends.DIY Pineapple bookends made from plaster | Popcorn and ChocolateWho knew a DIY project could take so much time and thought?! Not only are you getting a full tutorial on these bookends but you’re also get a sneak inside my thought process ūüėČ Ya’ll know how much I love pineapples, so this DIY was a long time coming.DIY Pineapple bookends made from plaster | Popcorn and Chocolate

Materials:

Instructions on how to make a patterned bandana:

  1. Start by putting down some newspaper or a towel that you don’t mind ruining. You will be working with bleach so¬†you want to make sure to put something underneath your bandana to catch any seepage. Also, I’d suggest not wearing anything you love in case the bleach splatters.
  2. Lay out your bandana on top of the newspaper/towel.
  3. Pour out some bleach into your paper cup.
  4. Grab your paint brush and start painting on the bleach. I did various designs such as splatter painting, X’s, and triangles. When working with the bleach it does bleed a lot so make your design slightly smaller than you wish as it will get bigger.
  5. Wash your bandana in the sink to make sure the bleach is all out. Let dry and then wear as you please!

DIY Patterned Bandanas by Popcorn and ChocolateThere you have it! An easy DIY to change up your bandanas. I’ve been wearing mine as much as I can and love having so many different patterns to choose from!

DIY Doughnut marquee by Popcorn and Chocolate

DIY Doughnut Marquee Light

DIY Doughnut Marquee | Popcorn and ChocolateLearn how to make his doughnut marquee sign for your home by reading below!

Over the past couple of years I’ve become quite obsessed with doughnuts. I kind of forgot about them between the ages of 8-22 but have rekindled the love.¬†The doughnut that brought back this love affair was definitely the Oreo peanut butter chocolate one from Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland.¬†It was all downhill from there.

DIY Donut marquee by Popcorn and ChocolateThere’s nothing quite like a good ol’ doughnut. That’s where the inspiration for this marquee sign came from – my love of doughnuts. Though this marquee doughnut is not edible it does light up¬†and makes for quite the unique home accent.

DIY Doughnut marquee by Popcorn and ChocolateI went for a strawberry frosted doughnut with extra sprinkles but you can certainly choose whatever flavor and sprinkle amount you prefer ;)

DIY Doughnut marquee by Popcorn and Chocolate

Materials:

  • Foam board
  • Poster board
  • Paint in various colors (I used light brown and pink)
  • Globe lights
  • Electric drill or nail and hammer
  • Hot glue gun
  • String

Doughnut marquee instructions:

  1. Start by drawing a large circle on your foam board and then a smaller one within that.How to make a doughnut marquee by Popcorn and Chocolate
  2. Cut out around the large circle and the small circle so you have a doughnut shape.How to make a doughnut marquee by Popcorn and Chocolate
  3. Cut out strips of poster about 2 inches thick and as long as the poster board.How to make a doughnut marquee by Popcorn and Chocolate
  4. To make the holes in the doughnut, first count out how many lights you have on your string lights (mine was 30) then on the back of your doughnut draw a dot everywhere you want to drill for a light. Make sure that you measure the distance between each light and don’t put the dots too far apart.¬†How to make a doughnut marquee by Popcorn and Chocolate
  5. Taking a drill, carefully drill a hole everywhere you marked. Or, if you don’t have a drill, you can take a hammer and a thick nail (one as thick as the wire on the light bulb) and nail a hole everywhere there is a dot – just make sure you don’t nail it all the way through so it sticks to whatever is underneath your doughnut.How to make a doughnut marquee by Popcorn and Chocolate
  6. Paint your doughnut and the strips of paper a light brown color. For the poster strips make sure you paint both sides. I found that using a circular foam brush looked the best as it didn’t leave any paint streaks.
  7. Once the brown is dry paint over the inside of the doughnut in pink creating the frosting.How to make a doughnut marquee by Popcorn and Chocolate
  8. Once your doughnut is painted you can attach the poster board  strips to the sides of the doughnut so it stands out. Using a hot glue gun, glue along the sides of the doughnut and then carefully place one of the poster board strips on it so that half is on each side. Continue doing this until your poster board strips cover the whole outside of the doughnut. Then do the same with the inside circle.
  9. Glue a piece of string  into a loop onto the back of your doughnut so you can hang it up.How to make a doughnut marquee by Popcorn and Chocolate
  10. Take off the balls on your globe lights so you can place the lights through the holes you drilled. Thread each of the lights through the holes and then replace the ball onto the globe light.How to make a doughnut marquee by Popcorn and Chocolate
  11. Tape down the battery pack to the back of your light.
  12. Hang on your wall and admire your handy work!

DIY Marbled Clay Vase | Popcorn and Chocolate

Marbled Clay Vase: Make it in under 10 minutes!

DIY Marbled Clay Vase | Popcorn and ChocolateIf you love marble and simple projects then try making this marbled clay vase! Scroll down to find the full tutorial.

DIY Marbled Clay Vase | Popcorn and ChocolateI’m a big fan of marble. I think it adds a sleek touch of decor to your home. I’m an even bigger fan of not spending an arm and a leg on marble decor. There are several techniques one can use to marble but for this vase we decided to keep it pretty simple, and indoor craft friendly.

DIY Marbled Clay Planter | Popcorn and ChocolateSimple crafts is what we are all about at Popcorn & Chocolate. Simple and cheap (but not cheap looking)! This DIY marbled vase is no exception. All you need to make it is some black and white Sculpey and an oven. Easy peasy.

DIY Marbled Clay Planter | Popcorn and Chocolate

Materials:

  • White and black Sculpey (or any oven bake clay)
  • Rolling pin
  • Knife
  • Parchment paper
  • Oven

Instructions:

  1. If your clay is like mine and has been sitting around for a couple of years, start by kneading a big chunk (about 1/4 cup) of white Sculpey in your hands to soften it up a bit. Do the same with a smaller (about a tablespoon) amount of black clay.
  2. Once your clay  is pliable, take the black clay and gently push it into the white clay. Continue to knead the two clays together, making sure not to over knead so it turns grey. You want there to be distinct black spots.
  3. Next, take your rolling pin and roll out your clay into a rectangle shape. You can use a plastic knife to cut off any excess clay and to make the lines straight Рmake sure to save it for the base.
  4. Take the two ends of the rectangle and line them up and then gently smooth the two edges together by pushing the clay from one end onto the other in one direction.How to make a marbled vase | popcorn and chocolate
  5. Roll out your scraps to make the base of your vase. To measure the base, put your vase circle on top and then, using a knife, cut around it.
  6. Secure the base bottom to the vase using the same technique described in step 4.
  7. Pop your vase in the oven at 275¬ļ on a piece of parchment paper. Bake for quite some time. You are supposed to bake your vase for 15 minutes per 1/4 inch thickness. My vase was pretty thick so this took about an hour. I just kept checking it every 15 minutes to make sure it wasn’t burning.
  8. Put some flowers or a plant in your pretty vase and you are all set!

Well, ladies and gentlemen, today is the day. Rose finally turns 25 and joins me in the confused land of not quite fresh out of college and not quite settling into your 30’s. Let’s all take a quick moment to welcome her to this new age before we get into bunny DIYs.

DIY Clay Bunny Planter | Popcorn and Chocolate

This is a rather sad day for me as I’ve spent the last 5?6? (you kinda loose track after a while) birthdays with her and now due to certain circumstances (our stupid pea brains getting too anxious) we won’t be together. Though I will be driving down to Boston the first chance I get to smother her with gifts and popcorn and quite possibly this little clay Easter bunny planter.

DIY Clay Bunny Planter | Popcorn and Chocolate

Speaking of, shall we get on with the DIY? Hokay. This little bunny planter is a cute way to add a bit of holiday flair to your home without going too over the top. Plus, it’s pretty stinking cute so you could¬†get away with having ¬†it out all year round.

DIY Clay Bunny Planter | Popcorn and Chocolate

Shall we hop right into it?

Materials:

  • Sculpey/oven bake clay (can use colored or just plain white and paint it after)
  • Rolling pin
  • Plastic knife
  • Oven
  • Glue gun

Instructions:

  1. Start by kneading your clay in your hands for a minute or so just to warm it up. Once it is more pliable, roll it out into a thin oval shape using a rolling pin.How to make a bunny planter using clay
  2. Trim off the sides of the oval so it is a thin, long rectangle.
  3. Take one end of the rectangle and loop it around to the other side to form a circle. Attach the edges together by gently kneading the clay onto itself.How to make a bunny planter using clay
  4. Roll out some more clay into a thin circle to act as the bottom of your pot. To measure you can put the circle you just made on top of the disk and cut away any excess.How to make a bunny planter using clay
  5. Attach the bottom of the pot to the circle by kneading the clay onto itself.How to make a bunny planter using clay
  6. Now make some ears and a tail for your bunny. For the ears, roll out some more clay and then taking your plastic knife cut out two ear shapes (like a triangle). For the tail take a small bit of clay and roll it into a small ball.How to make a bunny planter using clay
  7. Optional: if you want you can attach the ears and tail to the clay but for ease I did this later using a glue gun.
  8. Pop your clay pieces into the oven on a piece of parchment and bake at 275¬ļ per 1/4 inch thickness.
  9. Once your clay is baked and cooled you can go ahead and attach the ears and tail using a glue gun.
  10. Stick a cute succulent or cactus into your planter and you are good to go!

DIY Bunny Eraser for Easter (or anytime)! | Popcorn and Chocolate

When I was a wee little one, I remember (via home videos) running around behind my brothers as they scooped up all the Easter eggs as I looked confused and delighted all at once. Eventually my brothers would start pointing eggs out to me and putting them in my basket, at which point I would stop searching for new eggs and work on opening the eggs in my basket.

Do it yourself Easter bunny erasers | Popcorn and Chocolate

It was always so exciting to find what was hidden in each Easter egg. Usually it was candy but what kind and how much you never knew. On the rare occurrence there was a toy inside. That was almost more precious then the ubiquitous candy.

DIY Bunny Erasers | Popcorn and Chocolate

Today we’re sharing a very simple (like too simple to have written a whole post on it) DIY that is perfect to hide in your kids Easter eggs. Or, you could make these bunny erasers and give them away to your friends as a little Easter gift. Or or, if you just need an eraser why not make it a cute bunny shape? I’m all for objects that are shaped like cute animals.

DIY Bunny Erasers perfect for Easter | Popcorn and Chocolate

Andddd if you are looking for a super cute Easter basket to store these bunny erasers in be sure to check out our pom-pom Easter basket we made last year. It’s another super simple Easter DIY.

Materials:

  • Eraser clay
  • Bunny mold (alternatively you can form the bunny yourself) I bought my mold at Michaels but have linked a similar one from Amazon.
  • Oven

Instructions:

  1. Start by kneading the eraser clay in your hands for a few minutes just to warm it up so it is easier to work with.
  2. Taking your bunny mold, plop the eraser clay into one of slots and press it down and around so it fits the whole slot.
  3. Take the eraser clay out of the mold by gently prying up each side.
  4. Optional: Taking the eraser side of a pencil, gently press it into the bottom of the bunny to create a hole so that the eraser can be placed on a pencil.
  5. Pop the eraser clay on a piece of parchment paper on a oven tray and bake in the oven for the given time it says on your eraser clay package. Since my bunny was pretty thick this took quite some time Рjust be patient and know that the thicker your eraser the longer it will take.
  6. Let cool and pop on your favorite pencil or stick in an Easter basket as a cute little gift!

I remember when Rose and I moved into our first apartment the thing I was most excited for was to have my own set of keys to add to a keychain. I was also excited about having a real functioning kitchen and not eating cafeteria food (rumored to be) loaded with laxatives, but that’s a different story for another day. Maybe a DIY laxative pill post???

DIY Mud Cloth Plaster Keychains | Popcorn and Chocolate

All jokes aside, you have no idea how excited I was to have a little keychain with my set of keys.¬†It felt like here are your keys, you are now officially a grown up. And I walked proudly around with my jangling keys while Rose rolled her eyes at me as she grumbled about having to have¬†another¬†set of keys to add to her heavy keychain. It’s the little things in life.

DIY Mud Cloth Plaster Keychains | Popcorn and Chocolate

If only my grownup, key carrying, self had thought of this mud cloth DIY 5 years ago. Then I would be extra excited to carry around my keys.

Mud Cloth Patterned Plaster Keychain | Popcorn and Chocolate

Materials:

How to make the mud cloth keychain:

  1. Start by making your Plaster of Paris. This can get messy so I would suggest putting down some newspaper. Mix together the Plaster of Paris and water (per instructions listed on the plaster) in a container. Use a plastic spoon or something you don’t mind ruining to mix it¬†thoroughly.
  2. Pour plaster mixture into your silicone letter mold in an even layer. Tap the tray a few times to get rid of any air bubbles.
  3. Gently place your keychain into the plaster in the mold. You can rest the top of the keychain on the mold so it doesn’t fall in.
  4. Let dry for an hour (or for however long your plaster instructs).
  5. Once your plaster letter is dry you can pop it out of the mold. I would suggest letting it dry for a couple more hours just to make sure it is 100% dry before you color on it.
  6. Optional step: if there are any jagged bits or uneven areas on the plaster letter you can gently sand it down with sandpaper.
  7. Taking a colored pencil draw your mud cloth inspired design onto your letter keychain.
