Neon Pineapple Light-Up Sign

DIY Neon Pineapple Sign | We're Going to Make itUmmm, hello, neon pineapple light-up sign? This is what my dreams are made of, no really though, I have some pretty crazy dreams. This sign though, is gold, or should I say pineapple?

Sometimes I surprise myself with the diy’s I come up with. Does that ever happen to you? This neon light for example, only someone who is crazy about pineapples as I am would want a neon pineapple sign in there house.DIY Neon Pineapple Sign | We're Going to Make it

Materials:

  • Piece of plywood
  • El wire in green and yellow  – I bought both colors in 9ft and found this plenty long enough
  • Drill

How to make this neon pineapple sign:

  1. If your piece of plywood is not the size you wish it to be, cut it down to the size you want by using a saw. Alternatively, if you are picking up your wood at Homedepot they can cut it for you.
  2. Draw out the pineapple onto the front side of the plywood in pencil. I just free-handed mine but feel free to print out an image online and use it as a stencil. Just as a disclaimer, it will be very very hard to make curved lines so you will want to make sure all your lines are straight.
  3. Now comes the tricky part, determining where to drill the holes. The wire has to go in and out  right next to each other, so you will always have 2 holes side by side. Starting at the bottom left side of the pineapple I drew small dots and labeled each one with a number so I would know where to thread the wire in and out. I’ll go more into how I made the shape below, I just wanted to give a general idea of what you will be doing.DIY Neon Pineapple Sign | We're Going to Make it
    DIY Neon Pineapple Sign | We're Going to Make it

    It’s helpful to use string to run through your holes as you go along

     

    Making the pineapple bottom

  4. This is how I made the outer yellow pineapple shape: I started by drawing a small dot for the bottom left part of the pineapple. Next, using a ruler to make sure the bottom was flat, I drew a second dot about 6 inches away. I drew another dot about a fourth of an inch away from that one and did the same process of using a ruler and drawing another dot about 6 inches away. I made the line go slightly towards the right to start to form the pineapple shape. You will want to follow your basic pineapple outline you drew. Continue this process of drawing a dot and then another one a little further away around the whole outer yellow pineapple.
  5. Once you get back to the bottom of the outer pineapple it is time to work on the inside hatches. To do this you will work in a similar pattern of creating a dot and then another one further away so the wire can go in and out. I drew my dots close to where the ones were for the outer pineapple as a guideline. So, draw your first dot in the bottom left corner and then your 2nd dot at a diagonal up to the right hand side. The next dot I created was a little further up and then I brought the diagonal back down to the left side. I did this once more so you are ending in the top right corner of the pineapple base. Your next dot will be on the top left side and you will do the same thing going down the pineapple. Make sure you are marking each dot with a number as you will need this to know where to thread the wire.

Making the green pineapple leaves

  1. Start on the bottom left hand side and draw your dot. move about 6 inches to the left slightly on a diagonal and draw another dot. Draw a dot right next to that one and then move about 4 inches (or more depending on your leaf shape) to the right and draw another. Draw another dot right next to that one and then continue the process of moving on a diagonal to create the leaves.

And the rest:

  1. Now that you have all your holes drawn, it is time to drill. You will being drilling a hole on every dot that you drew. Safety first! Make sure you do this carefully and safely.
  2. Once all of the holes are drilled you can sand down any sharp bits.
  3. Grab your yellow wire and bring it through the first hole that you made. Thread it through to the 2nd hole. It’s kind of like connect the dots, so continue to thread your wire through the holes following the numbers. This is where the numbers come in handy.
  4. Do the same with the green wire.
  5. Tape any excess wire to the back of the plywood.
  6. Erase the pencil marks on the front of the plywood.
  7. Pop some batteries into your el wire and watch your pineapple glow!

6 items to make your house a home and a simple no-sew pillow diy | We're going to make it

6 New Home Essential and a Quick No-Sew Pillow DIY

Casper and I have created a list of 6 new home essentials that make your new house or apartment feel like a home. All of these items will help you feel right at home in your new place. Check out our list below and read on to find out why I chose each of these items!

6 essentials for your new home | We're going to make it

As you may or may not know, I plan on moving across the country sometime in the not too distant future. I do not know where I am moving and I don’t know when, but when I do I will be sure to pack all of these essentials with me! I’ve moved apartments a couple of times in the past few years and with each move I think I’m getting a little better at unpacking our stuff and settling in. Items like some art and plants and a good mattress definitely help expedite this process of making your home feel, well, homey. And let’s face it, moving is not fun, so anything to help this process along is a plus in my book. First on my list of new home essentials? A rug!

6 items to make your house a home and a simple no-sew pillow diy | We're going to make it

Rugs!: I hadn’t realized the magic of a rug until I bought my first one from West Elm on super sale. I fell in love right away, and still have it to this day. I cannot stress this enough, a rug really can pull a whole room together. Finding the perfect rug can be tricky (so many options!), but once you do it really makes your home feel complete.

Artwork: This is where your personality can really show through your home. Art can be anything from a photograph of you and your dog to a painting you bought (or made!). In my home I like to display wall weavings that I made as well as photographs, like this amazing one my brother took. I’m also a sucker for an inspirational quote or two. Artwork adds some fun flair to your walls and is one of those things that you can easily save money on by DIYing it. You can print out photographs and frame them yourself or grab some paint and a paintbrush and make your own unique piece!

New Mattress, Sheets, and Pillows: This is probably one of the most important things you will want in your new home – a new mattress and bedding. This adds instant coziness to your bedroom. Moving a mattress across states is a huge pain (believe me, I’ve done it multiple times). I’d much rather order one from Casper and have it show up at my doorstep in a neat little box. They really take all the struggle out of buying a new mattress, no more lugging a queen size mattress through tight stairwells wondering if it will ever make it your bedroom.

Plants – lots of plants!: It’s no secret that I love my plants so of course they are on my list! I feel like plants just make your house feel alive. You can get tall ones, small ones, air plants, anything your heart desires! My heart desires all so my room is full of random succulents and cactus that I just can’t resist.

Decorative Pillows: Instant coziness is a couch or bed full of fluffy pillows. I’m one of those people who likes to switch out my pillow with the seasons #noshame. I understand decorative pillows can get pretty expensive so I’ve got a super easy and super cheap DIY option for you, all you will need is a pair of cloth napkins or placemats, a hot glue gun, and some stuffing. Watch the video below to find out how to make these simple no-sew pillows! So easy and it only cost me $15!

Craft Supplies: Last, but not least, we’ve got some craft supplies. If you haven’t noticed by my blog name and the fact that I just shared a DIY pillow, I’m a big craft lady. I like to keep busy with my hands and create things for my home so of course my home wouldn’t be complete without some supplies to do that. I like to have on hand some craft paper, a glue gun, yarn, pens/pencils, and some paint so I can craft away. Currently my craft supplies are stored in a big trunk but I’m hoping in my new home I’ll get a whole room dedicated to it! Now that would make my home a home!

I hope you enjoyed our essentials that make your new house feel like a home. Comment below what your essentials are! Casper did not compensate for me for this post, I am truly intrigued by their company and hope to try it out in the future when I move!

DIY Flamingo Pool Float Coasters | Popcorn and Chocolate

Flamingo Pool Float Coasters

DIY Flamingo Pool Float Coasters | Popcorn and ChocolateFlamingo pool float coasters are the perfect accessory for your parties this summer. Pool float season is in full swing right now. I’m really loving all the funny pool float shapes that come out each year, although I am partial to the flamingo. I wonder what was going through the persons head who invited the flamingo pool float. Genius. Pure genius.DIY Flamingo Pool Float Coasters | Popcorn and ChocolateDIY Flamingo Pool Float Coasters | Popcorn and ChocolateWhy stop at pool floats for the pool? These pool float coasters are a fun way to spice up a summer party, or, ya know,  just a Tuesday night.DIY Flamingo Pool Float Coasters | Popcorn and Chocolate

Materials:

  • Oven bake clay
  • Rolling pin
  • Plastic knife
  • Paint
  • Paint brush

How to make these flamingo pool float coasters:

  1. Start by warming up a big chunk of clay in your hands.
  2. Roll it into a ball and then taking a rolling pin, or a plastic cup, roll out the ball into a pancake shape. Roll it out big enough so it will be able to hold a cup (duh). Cut off any excess clay using a knife.DIY Flamingo Pool Float Coasters | Popcorn and Chocolate
  3. Next, roll another piece of clay into a long, skinny rope. This will be the neck and head of the flamingo. Taking one end, pinch and pull some of the clay over to form the actual head. Form the tip of it into a beak by gently pinching the clay at the end.DIY Flamingo Pool Float Coasters | Popcorn and Chocolate
  4. If you would like to add eyes you can do so by rolling out two tiny balls of clay and then gently pressing them into the head. Admittedly, as you can see, I only did eyes for one of the flamingos because I couldn’t decide if I liked them or not.
  5. Attach the neck to the body by placing it onto the base (the pancake part) and gently pushing the clay from the neck onto the base, smoothing as you go.DIY Flamingo Pool Float Coasters | Popcorn and Chocolate
  6. For the body of the flamingo, roll out another long skinny piece of clay. This will have to be long enough to fit all the way around the base. Attach it to the base the same way you did the neck, by gently pushing small amounts of clay from the roll onto the base. Secure to the neck as well.DIY Flamingo Pool Float Coasters | Popcorn and ChocolateDIY Flamingo Pool Float Coasters | Popcorn and Chocolate
  7. Pop your flamingos into the oven and bake according to the instructions of your clay. Once out of the oven let them cool down completely before you paint them.
  8. Paint your flamingo coasters pink. I also added orange to the beak and black to the eyes.DIY Flamingo Pool Float Coasters | Popcorn and Chocolate

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.

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

DIY patterned coasters using resin | Popcorn and Chocolate

It was a lot of fun trying to figure out what patterns I wanted to do for my coasters. A little known fact is that Rose and I used to scrapbook, so we have accumulated a lot of scrapbook paper. It’s so much that I can’t even lift the basket by myself. We haven’t scrapbooked since college so the paper has just been sitting around (apart from making some awesome photo backdrops).

I didn’t want our paper to go to waste so I’ve been trying to come up with some do it yourself projects to incorporate it. These patterned coaters do just that! Stick around to see what else I end up doing with our scrapbook paper 😉

DIY Pineapple bookends made from plaster | Popcorn and Chocolate

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?!

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 – make 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 275º 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!

DIY Clay Bunny Planter | Popcorn and Chocolate

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.

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 275º 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!
