As much as we’ve loved the painted feather decorations that adorned the Petunia Boutique and our seaside HQ this summer, DeNai recently decided to refresh the design of our creative space for the new season. And leave it to Petunia Pickle Bottom’s fashionable Founder & Designer (and Crafter-in-Chief) to kick off the fall “back to school” season with decorations torn straight from the pages of texts.
The bookish theme of our new decor includes several fun and easy DIY crafts using little more than pages of paperbacks and a bit of paint. (Note: no classics were harmed in the making of these crafts.)
