RECIPE

175g of egg whites (Approximately 5 large eggs) at room temperature
350g sugar
Pink and/or red food dye

Preheat oven to 200°F (90°C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks. Slowly add sugar. Continue whisking until stiff peaks; the time will vary depending on the temperature of your egg whites.

Prepare a pastry bag by cutting off the end and inserting a large round tip. (I used an 18mm.) Squeeze in some food coloring on either side of the piping bag. Careful not to add too much or the meringues could end up tasting bitter.

Pour half of the meringue mixture into the prepared piping bag. Pipe the kisses about one inch wide onto the baking sheet. Continue piping in rows until you’ve used all the meringue. Repeat with a new piping bag, and a different food color if desired.

Bake for approximately 1 1/2 hours or until they can be lifted cleanly from the parchment paper. Allow the meringues to cool completely before enjoying!

DIY Marbled Air Plant Holder

Marble Air Plant Holder

My biggest obsessions currently include air plants, as evidenced by this Instagram post, and all things marble. I thought long and hard about how to combine the two and came up with these marbled clay planters.

Marble Air Plant Holder
You’ll Need:

  • Two different colored oven-bake Clays
  • Xacto Knife
  • Clay carving tool

Marble Air Plant Holder1. Start by cutting each color of clay into three separate pieces.

Marble Air Plant Holder2. Work the clay in your hands until it is soft and pliable. Combine two pieces together.

Marble Air Plant Holder3. Continue combining the clay until you have added all your pieces. Once you have added all the clay, begin to pull apart and layer. Mix the clay together without fully combining the clay.

Marble Air Plant Holder4. Roll the clay into a ball and decide what kind of shape you want for your planter. I wanted a short, oval look for my first planter. Flatten out the clay to about 1/4″ in height.

Marble Air Plant Holder5. Using the clay tool, trace a circle in the clay. Carve out the circle but be careful to not go all the way through the clay.

Marble Air Plant Holder6. Using a sharp knife, start to trim away at the piece of clay. Hold the knife at an angle to create sharp angles along the top edge.

Marble Air Plant HolderRepeat the previous step along the bottom edge of the planter.

Marble Air Plant HolderContinuing making different styles and shapes! Bake your clay following the instructions on the packaging.

DIY Gold Foil State Print

Gold State Print

If you follow my blog, you already know I’m in the process of making over my bedroom. I recently installed a few gold bracket shelves after writing this post. I wanted some art to style my shelves and was really inspired by my latest post on gold foil prints. I’ve seen some state prints online and loved the idea!

Gold Leaf World Print

I’m back at blogging! Hopefully for good this time!! I’ve been super busy with work and have recently undertaken the project of redecorating my bedroom. I’m trying to stick with a clean, white palette. I painted my room from a dark pink to a bright white. Bought a new desk and hung some shelves. Though I’m trying to stick with mainly white, gold accents keep popping up into the decor. (Stay tuned for some gilded DIYs!) If you’re looking to add some gold decor to your home, these prints are the perfect addition!
