We took a little break from our Friday Reader Roundup series during the holiday to give us a chance to share some inspiring holiday posts. We plan to get back to that regular series next Friday, but in the meantime here are some really fun projects I can’t help but share.

I almost put these Pom-Pom Cupcake Toppers from Styleist in my Chinese New Year party roundup but I decided I should leave them out because there was no chance I was going to make them. I can’t resist sharing them though! They’re so festive!

DIY Hand Gesture Pop-Up Greeting Cards from Man Made DIY are really fun! And in most cases, they’re pretty encouraging. It would be a good afternoon project to keep yourself stocked up on ready made congratulations, thank you, or thinking of you cards. I’m not sure what sentiment the middle finger card is best to convey? Maybe a kind of bitter congratulations?

This Paper Fan Banner from Somewhere Splendid is obviously beautiful for the holidays but I think it would be adorable for a summer wedding! It could be a colorful backdrop for pre-wedding photos, lline the entry as people came in, and be put to good use as the party heats up!

 This how-to for a DIY: Mid-Century Modern Bench via 2Modern Blog looks really classy. I think I actually marked it so I could share it with Mary because the link-through has good advice on where to get all kinds of legs for your DIY projects and I know she’s on the hunt for some!
