Valentine’s Day Gift Bags

February 13, 2018 — by Chelsey Bishoff


It’s that time of year again to celebrate love! Whether you are gifting your best gal pals or surprising your bae, we have a cute DIY gift bag to go along with it! Not only will you have the perfect gift, you will also have the perfect wrapping. Let’s get started!


  1. Blank gift bags
  2. Craft paints (red, pink, copper)
  3. Pencil
  4. Heart stencil

Place the heart stencil in the center of the bag.

Take the eraser end of the pencil, and dip it into whichever paint color you would like to start with first.

Create dots all around the shape of the heart stencil.

Continue to layer this pattern. Switch up and blend the colors as you add dots around the heart. Keep the dots close together for the first few layers, then begin to spread them out. This will create a dispersed effect as seen in the photos below.

Happy Valentine’s Day!


Fairy Garden

January 29, 2018 — by Chelsey Bishoff


Okay, so how cutie are fairy gardens? We have been seeing them all over the place so we figured it was time to make one of our own! The fun part is that we found the base of our garden in vintage stores. We are using a milk glass bowl from the 1930’s! Isn’t that neat? DIY’s are much more fun when you get to make it your own. Use whatever materials you want to make your fairy garden exactly how you like!


  1. Bowl/container for the base
  2. Dirt and moss (faux or real)
  3. Mini house or any other fairy accessories
  4. Pebbles

Begin by packing in the dirt

We dug up some moss from the yard. Add that on top of the dirt.

Next, is the best part! Add all the “fairy” accessories you would like. We decided to place a mini house and use pebbles as a walk way.

Sweet and simple!

We accompanied ours with some plants and a yummy candle to get the vibe we were going for!


Holiday Gift Boxes

November 9, 2017 — by Chelsey Bishoff


With the holidays coming in quick we are in DIY heaven! What’s better than personalized gifts? Make every present special this holiday season by putting your own personal spin to it. All my favorite gifts have been handmade. These gift boxes are also the perfect thing to gift Puravida Bracelets in. Make them for birthdays, holidays or any other special occasion. Let’s get started!

What you will need:

  1. Craft paper
  2. String
  3. Tape, scissors
  4. Tags and any other accessories you want to use to decorate
  5. Stensil provided

Begin by tracing the stencil onto your craft paper.

Use scissors to cut out the correct shape of the stencil.

The dotted lines in the stencil will guide you on where to fold your cutout. Once you have folded it into a box, use tape to secure the edges.

Use yarn or string to wrap around the box. Along with other decorations to add to the top!

Have fun and get creative to make it personal to the person you are giving it to!



Lavender Rosemary Air-freshener

August 26, 2017 — by Chelsey Bishoff


I’m always on the hunt for new scents. The aroma of your home or room can be crucial. Not only for the enjoyment of the smell itself, but also the benefits. Lavender for example can help ease the mind and relax your body. Today, I am going to be making my very own DIY essential oil air-freshener. This is perfect for any of you new college students to use in your dorm since you can’t burn candles in your rooms. I decided to use lavender and rosemary oils. I think most can all agree that those 2 marry so well! However, feel free to use any scent you like. Let’s get started!

What you will need:

  1. Essential oil(s) of choice
  2. Baking soda
  3. Dried fruit or flowers ( I got mine from an herbal tea bag)
  4. Mini mason jar

Begin by first adding 4 tablespoons of baking soda. Or until the mason jar is filled half way.

Now add about 2-3 tablespoons of the essential oils.

Time for the dried flowers and fruit. We added this in the mix, but also saved a little bit to add to the top for decoration.

Mix all together. The consistency of the mixture should be pasty. If it’s too runny add more baking soda. If it’s too think add a bit more oil.

Last step, remove the center part of the mason jar lid. You will then cut out around the shape of the lid. Once you have the circular cut out, place it on the inside of the lid.

It should look like this! This will allow the scent to come through nicely.

Don’t forget to add a few more sprinkles of the dried fruit and flowers on top!

Place anywhere in your room or house!

Seashell wall hanging

July 18, 2017 — by Chelsey Bishoff


I think by now, you all know how much I love wall hangings. I think it’s so much fun to change up your space just with a few materials. Not to mention how easy it is! Today, I am going to show you how to make this adorable seashell wall hanging– Perfect for the summer time! Hang this in your room or bathroom. This is also a great way to get creative with your seashell collection. I have WAY too many to keep ahold of, so this craft allowed me to show off my favorites!

Here is what you’ll need

  1. Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  2. Seashells
  3. Fishing wire
  4. Twig/stick
  5. Scissors

Begin by spacing out your shells the way you want them to hang. Do this before gluing them onto the fishing wire.

Next, measure how long you will need your fishing wire to be. This part will totally depend on your preference when it comes to how far apart you want your shells to be. Cut them all the same length.

Once the string has been cut, tie one end of each string to the top of the stick. Place two dots of hot glue on the back of the seashells. One dot of glue being at the top, and the other at the bottom of the shell.

Let all the hot glue dry, then you are free to hang it up anywhere! We are LOVING this beachy look.

Moving right along, the mini anchors are always a classic pick! Nothing says “beach babe” more than this super cute charm! My favorite color it comes in is the seafoam green.
