DIY Ice cream cone vases

This is one of my favorites for Oh Happy day! It combines four of my favorite things: ice cream + flowers +  bright colors + stripes. Too much goodness. The photoshoot with Hilda was one of the craziest yet as we were shooting a few projects and I was delayed because I couldn't find helium anywhere in town for the balloon project, then the ATM ate my card. Boo! I ended up having to cab it home, which I never ever do here in Copenhagen; you might as well give them your first born for the price they charge you. Needless to say, Hilda is meget meget (so, so) patient.*
What you can't really tell about my hair right now is that it's orange. If I were to hold it straight up in the air it'd look like candy corn with the white from the first dye job, the orange from the most recent, and my roots coming in. Sick. I guess it'd be more appropriate if it were October. TMI, sorry.
Anywhoo, check out the full DIY at Oh Happy Day.

*Danes love repeating words for emphasis. I find myself faking Danish just by repeating a few select phrases in a really deep, gutteral voice and they seem to love it.

The top photo is my absolute fav! Do Danes have the gasping, heavy sigh used to accentuate meanings? It literally used to scare me before I understood what anyone was saying.

Miss B. said...

@willowday, yes! they do the gasping. I didn't get it at first. I thought it was gasping for air, or cutting off their sentences. I found that they do it more in Finland. Is it a Swedish thing too? I don't find that a lot of Danes do it, but I've spotted it every now and again.

I had orange hair once when I tried to go from dark brown to blonde..at home...myself..yep rookie mistake. I did however get used to the orange and became quite fond of it eventually. :)

p.s. loooove this diy, lady! xo

Miss B. said...

@Dennise, ha! Sadly, mine was done professionally. She promised me after four rinsings of purple shampoo that it'd go white. I've been washing every day with it and no change :(

Too cute.
