Inspired by her upcoming book club meeting, Beauty Director & Editor of InStyle Hair and Makeover Amy Synnott-D’Annibale created a simple and unique centerpiece with Penguin Books postcards to reflect the spirit of the evening. The busy mother of two (and one puppy!) revealed her Do It Yourself project on her @AmySynnott Instagram this week. Read on for her tips on how you can recreate it, too.
AMY ON HER DIY PROJECT: "I happened to have these Penguin postcards ($20 for a set at amazon.com) laying around my office, so I went on a hunt this weekend to find glass vases that would fit them, and I found some at Home Goods ($4.99 at homegoods.com). I coated the sides of the vase with modge podge ($11 at target.com), stuck the postcards on, allowed that to dry, and then applied two more coats. When it was dry, I sprayed the whole thing with an acrylic sealant, which gave it a cool glossy finish. I then filled it with 84 tulips, which I bought for $50 at a deli. And it only took 15 minutes!"
