Fun DIYs to Bring Color  to Your Life  ...

Since September 2011, Houstonian Ashley Rose has been giving me major life envy, so I'm thrilled that she's shared exactly how she's made all of her ultra-gorgeous, bright and colorful DIY projects... so I can have a tiny bit of her style, and you can too! Here are a few of my all-time fave Sugar & Cloth DIY projects.

1 DIY Floral Macarons

food, dessert, icing, finger, cake decorating, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
These are almost too pretty to eat! ... almost.

2 Fruit Necklaces

color, clothing, blue, yellow, flower, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
These look like they'd end up a sticky mess, but not worries: they're made of make-believe fruits.

3 Confetti-Pattern Plates

food, wheel, dessert, cake decorating, icing, Instructions here: ‌‌sugarandcloth.com
Truly, is there any better way to display your macarons (during that few seconds they haven't been eaten yet)?

4 Glam Camera Strap

Aaand now the pricey camera strap I bought a few weeks ago means nothing to me.

5 Injectable Donut Holes

food, dessert, finger, icing, baking, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
The color and flavor combinations are endless, but my favorite is already covered: chocolate.

6 Watercolor Throw Blanket

bag, handbag, product, furniture, shelf, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
This would make such an awesome gift... or, you know, something for you to just keep for yourself.

7 Drake on Cake Birthday Macarons

‌What puppy pal wouldn't want a cute pink flamingo or sparkly unicorn pool float costume?

9 Widlflower Macarons

Okay, I'm not complaining AT ALL, but a lot of these DIYs are all about macarons. Yum!

10 Clay Decanter

Ever wondered what to do with all of those empty Patron bottles? Me neither.

11 Plate Clock

yellow, art, design, illustration, pattern, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
This is much, much prettier than the ugly plastic digital clock I'm using right now.

12 Easter Macarons

This DIY comes with a fab recipe for royal icing. Bookmark, stat!

13 Statement Printed Plates

heart, petal, food, pattern, produce, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
You can make these with any print you want, but it's going to be tough to beat pink flamingos, am I right?

14 No-Sew Throw Pillows

art, furniture, textile, bed sheet, material, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
You'll never guess what these gorgeous envelope pillows are made of. Ready? Napkins. Yeah!

15 Potted Cactus Macarons

pink, flower, food, dessert, heart, Instructions at: ‌‌http://sugarandcloth.com/2015/05/diy-potted-cactus-macarons/‌ and ‌sugarandcloth.com

This DIY project is so prickly (and fantastic), she's done it two ways. Which do you like best?

16 Raspberry Smoothie Bowl Bites

pink, petal, food, flower, fashion accessory, Instructions at: ‌‌http://sugarandcloth.com/2016/08/raspberry-smoothie-bowl-bites/‌

This is more of a recipe than a DIY, but it's so tasty (and they're so pretty!) I couldn't leave them out.

17 Taper Candle Holder

color, pencil, lighting, ball pen, magenta, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
Okay, now I want to see the DIY for the candles themselves. Anyone have a link?

18 Super-Chic Bento Boxes

food, produce, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
My Bento boxes came from the grocery store, are made of plastic, and are ugly. Time to make these ones!

19 Printable Wall Art

room, furniture, product, living room, play, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
This isn't so much a DIY as it is a PIY (print it yourself). Which of these will you print and hang?

20 Seersucker Tea Towels

yellow, room, product, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
I might have a slight obsession with tea towels, so I might have to make these immediately.

21 Glasses Case

red, pattern, product, polka dot, heart, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
Ha! I love this punny little sunglasses case!

22 Retro Beach Umbrella

color, red, pink, yellow, balloon, Instructions at: sugarandcloth.com
What color would you choose for your umbrella and fringe? I'm thinking pink with mint.

23 Marble & Gold Accent Table

I want to make this table, and also, I want this apartment.

24 Pom-Pom Beach Bag

This is the cutest beach bag ever! I'm going to be sad when I have to put it away for winter.

25 Citronella Candles

These look like they'd be difficult to make, but they're not.

Now I also need the recipe for whatever is inside those little pineapples and apples.

27 Macaron Swizzle Sticks

For the true macaron lover, like me. And you?

28 Floral Chandelier Garland

You can make this for a party using real flowers, or keep it for much longer with silks.

29 Cool Keychains

I plan to make a set of these to hand out as stocking stuffers this year. Love!

30 Brass Ring Wall Art

I'm kind of in love with copper right now, so I'd make this out of copper instead... or oh! Maybe rose gold!
