Guest Blogger: Handmade Charlotte

Meet our Guest Blogger and Queen of Pinterest: Rachel Faucett! She is the founder of the wildly popular online family publication Handmade Charlotte. The mother of five lives on a horse farm with her husband near Atlanta, Georgia. We'll be partnering with her for the next month to bring you all kinds of fun kid-centric DIYs and home inspiration!


High Fives for DIYs From Handmade Charlotte

Eek! I just jumped up in the air, added a twist, and clapped three times! Why am I so excited? Because Handmade Charlotte is partnering with Hanna Andersson to bring you the very best in DIY and home inspiration, AND (most importantly!) to introduce Hanna Home - their exciting new home collection. Check out HA’s Pinterest boards and follow along as we fill them up with gorgeous style for you and your family.

To give you a sneak peak into what you will find there, I’ve put together some darling, decorative, and delicious faves and DIYs to get your wheels a’spinning. So what are you waiting for? Check 'em out below!

1. Hanna Andersson’s New Home Collection

Hanna Andersson’s charming, nautically-inspired children’s interiors are nothing short
of perfection. I’m a huge fan of mixing and matching patterns - and Hanna Home has
zigzags, stripes, and checks to boot!

2. DIY Melted Gummy Bear Alphabet Edible Craft via Momtastic

What about DIY that’s as tasty as it is fun? Sign me up! Our best bud Brittni Mehlhoff
melted gummy bears and poured them into alphabet ice molds - what a cool idea! This
is a great way to personalize a table setting or even to share an inspirational quote with a
friend. Our sweet tooth is BIG fan of this one!

3. DIY Hand Stitched Lavender Filled Heart’s via Pippa Patchwork

These darling hand-sewn hearts instantly reminded us of the new Hanna Home collection’s
Heart Quilt. Filled with lavender, I think it would be an adorable idea to fold in
hand-written warm wishes. Whether you keep it on your bed to scent your dreams or
give it to someone special, this one makes our hearts thump.

4. DIY Crochet Floral Headpiece via Greedy For Colour

Spring, I’m so happy you’re here, good friend! My girls and I spotted this cutie pie DIY
and plan on making them to wear on Mother’s Day. What a sweet and simple way to celebrate
the season

5. DIY Peeled Bark Family Portraits via Made By Joel

Now here’s a crafty spin on the family portrait! Handmade Charlotte loves Made by Joel
- and our kids can’t get enough of his fun DIYs. This one turns tree bark into members
of your family - or turns your family members into tree bark? Either way, it’s definitely a mantle-worthy idea!
