Out and About: Tablescapes Spring DIY Workshop with Canadian Tire

The Canvas Collection Canadian Tire

 

You may have seen on my Instagram last week that I co-hosted a “Tablescapes” Spring DIY Workshop, featuring the CANVAS outdoor dining collection from Canadian Tire. I had sooo much fun that I wanted to share a little recap of the event for those of you who couldn’t attend. My co-host was the talented Tracy Platt, Canadian Tire’s resident style expert. Her and her team designed every piece of the CANVAS indoor and outdoor collection, and I must say, WOW, what an amazing job they did!

 

There are so many pieces in the CANVAS Spring Collection that I wanted, but when I finally narrowed it down, I went for a turquoise tropical theme (see my setting in the photo below). My fave pieces included the CANVAS Aloha Dessert Plates, the CANVAS Marina Dinner Plates, and the CANVAS Serving Board. Such a stunning colour combo, and perfect for Spring/Summer!

The “Tablescapes” Spring DIY Workshop had a great turnout! Attendees received some Al Fresco Table Setting Tips from Tracy and myself, they worked together to create some fun tablescapes of their own, and got to check out the CANVAS Collection showroom, showcasing all of the indoor and outdoor pieces from the Spring lineup.

I had such an amazing time at this event, and am so thankful that I had this opportunity. A huge thank you to Canadian Tire for partnering with me for this workshop and this blog post. My outdoor dining game has definitely been taken up a notch!

Glitter Tape DIY Gift Wrap

DIY Gift Wrap with Glitter Washii Tape

 

I’m going to toot my own horn for a minute, and say that I’m actually a really good gift wrapper. I absolutely L-O-V-E wrapping presents, and have loved it for as long as I can remember. When I was in high school, I remember people always asking me to help them wrap presents when I was at their houses. My loved ones also always say that they look forward to my gift wrapping as much as they look forward to the actual present. So, when Seal-It reached out and asked if I wanted to get holiday crafty with their fabulous glitter tape, my first instinct was that it was the perfect item to get creative (and sparkly!) with to wrap my holiday gifts!

Supplies for this DIY are super simple to put together. The Seal-It Glitter Tape can be purchased online at SealItGlitterStore.ca, or at Shopper Drug Mart (in Canada), and I picked up all of the other holiday supplies at the dollar store! Cute little accents (such as bells, ornaments, faux greenery, garland, berries), ribbon, twine and candy canes can be added to the gifts for that extra wow factor.

I made the adorable gift tags by layering rows of Seal-It glitter tape on card stock, then cutting out the desired shapes. I used the same technique to create the letter ‘J’ on the gift tag below.

To create the bow above, I took 2 strips of glitter tape and placed them sticky side to sticky side. Then I created an ‘O’ shape with the strip, pinched it in the middle to create the bow shape, then put a piece of tape around the middle. Super easy and cute!

I LOVE the Seal-It Glitter Tape because the glitter never flakes off, and it can actually be torn with your hands…no scissors required! It can also be stuck to a number of different surfaces, but it’s not a heavy duty tape, so it can easily be removed. It’s perfect for crafts and DIY’s!
