A Stem Above collaborated with Kara O’Connor Interiors to create a garden-scape for the annual Macy’s Flower Show. Located in the cosmetics department on the first floor, our piece brings a fresh breath of Spring into the store.
ASA’s team custom designed a trellis structure filled with a plethora blooming plants and hanging terrariums in brightly colored hues. KOC Interiors put their personal touch on the display by creating a reading nook.
This morning Kara and Erin gave a tutorial on creating a DIY inspired Easter holiday centerpiece. Below are some step by step photos for some of our fun and easy ideas.
Modge Podge and Paper Eggs
Step 1: Cut strips of writing or small images from a magazine or newspaper.
Step 2: With a paintbrush, put a small amount of modge podge on an egg. (You can use plastic eggs or blow out real eggs)
Step 3: Place one of your pieces of paper over the modge podge and smooth it until it is securely in place on your egg.
Simply repeat until the whole egg is covered!
Leaf Imprinted Eggs
For this design you will need nylons, egg dye (store bought PAAS works fine), pressed greenery, and string or ribbon
Step1: Get your egg dye ready and cut the foot off of the end of your nylon
Step 2: Place your greenery on your egg and put it in the foot of the nylon
Step 3: Make sure that the nylon is tight against the egg so that the dye won’t get under the greenery and tie it at the top with your string
Step 4: Place the egg in the dye. For brighter color leave in the dye for 15+ minutes.
After you take the egg out and remove from nylon you should have the imprint of your greenery left on the egg.
