Inspired by the Sequins Trends feature in our latest issue of Mollie Makes, today’s Moodboard Monday shines the light on all things sparkly. In the mag, you’ll find tutorials on how to make a velvet and sequin collar, as well as how to customise your Converse to ensure you have twinkling toes. Here we present some of the glittering goodies and sequinned lovelies we want in our lives…

It’ll soon be Easter and we’ve been looking for ways to decorate our homes for spring. So, how about this? There seems to be a whole movement dedicated to crafty pretties made from none other than – yes! – cupcake wrappers. Perfect for adding to gift wrap or to decorate the home for a special occasion. Most of us have some cupcake cases stashed away at the back of our kitchen cupboards, so call this a cost-free and thrifty project.
