Copper Mid-Century Modern Planters

Copper Mid-Century Modern Planters DIY | Popcorn and ChocolateNot going to lie, these copper mid-century modern planters weren’t the easiest craft to make. Though, they are one of my more functional crafts. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good light-up donut marquee just as much as the next person. But sometimes I want something that has a real purpose to it. And the purpose for these lovely copper mid-century modern planters is to hold my abundance of succulents and plants. I like plants.Copper Mid-Century Modern Planters DIY | Popcorn and ChocolateAlso not going to lie, these mid-century planters were a b to photograph. Do you ever have that problem, where everything you seem to do just makes the picture look weirder? I must have moved locations in my house at least 4 times before I decided I must have a couple pictures that would work. Spoiler alert, I did.Copper Mid-Century Modern Planters DIY | Popcorn and Chocolate

Copper Mid-CenturyCopper Mid-Century Modern Planters DIY | Popcorn and Chocolate Modern PlantersDon’t let my complaints deter you from creating these lovely planters. As much of a pain as they were, they are actually one of my favorite crafts. I think this diy came out amazing, especially for someone who isn’t very well versed in power tools. Don’t worry if you can’t use a drill as I have included instructions on how to make it without one. I got your back! I know what it’s like to look at a craft and then quickly realize you don’t have the means to create it. What a bummer! Not here though, we like to make things enjoyable for the whole family. Or, at least the part of the family that likes to craft.

Sometimes crafters go a little overboard in buying supplies. But I’m so glad we 1. finally have a use for these crafts and 2. that they came out so good! Fabric covered letters | Popcorn & ChocolateThey are very simple to make and only require a few items that you might already have lying around in your craft supplies closet already.

Summer Pink Flamingo Painted Doormat

Pink flamingo painted doormat | Popcorn & ChocolateI don’t know about you guys but our summer has been a busy one. Both Rose and I are in a sort of transition period between jobs and apartments and it has put a lot of stress on both of us. We sadly (and begrudgingly) had to move out of our apartment together for the rest of the summer until we know what our next steps in life will be. We’ve both been busy bees and have tried to keep up with the blog and our Etsy as much as we can. We do have a few posts for you planned so stay tuned for some fun goodbye summer/hello school themed posts coming up. But, in the meantime enjoy this pink flamingo painted doormat that we made for Homedit. This DIY was the last to be done in our apartment and it seems fitting that it is a doormat that we can take to our next apartment (wherever that will be)! Summer pink flamingo painted doormat We are excited for what the future brings and hopefully your future will bring you this wonderful DIY summer flamingo painted doormat. It is easy to make and can be customized to any shape/animal/design that you want! We even provided free printouts of the stencil we used so you can simply print, cut, and paint! summer pink flamingo painted doormat | Popcorn & ChocolateWe hope you enjoy this fun summer DIY! I had a grand time making the flamingo cutouts and even stuck them up around our apartment afterwards for Rose to find. Anywaysss you can check out our DIY summer pink flamingo painted doormat over on Homedit or by clicking here. Let us know what you think and comment below what animal or design you would like on a doormat! IMG_1442

Colorful etched vases with flower puns and sayings

Colorful Etched Vases With Flower Puns & Sayings


With summer upon us and beautiful flowers blooming all around we decided to create some cute and colorful etched vases with flower puns and sayings – because who doesn’t love a good flower pun or saying? We created these colorful etched vases by laying down letters and then etching and spray painting the vase to create a nice sea-glass tone. You can find the whole tutorial over on Homedit 


We had a lot of fun coming up with different flower related sayings to put on these. Rose of course went with a rose is a rose is a rose. My mantra is more a rosé is a rosé is a rosé 😉
