Encouragement at its EXTREME! Share some love…. Receive some love. Hey! That is how the world works right?!?

EncourageMint Cupcakes

 1.  Bake off your favorite Chocolate Cake Recipe. You can add just a teaspoon of mint to the batter if you like.

2.  Follow up with this very simple Mint Buttercream Frosting:

Mint Buttercream Frosting

¾ cup butter
5 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp corn syrup (optional)
¼ cup water or milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp mint extract

In a mixing bowl (or a large bowl and hand mixer) fixed with the paddle attachment, beat the butter until it becomes soft and creamy. Add in 1-2 cups of powdered sugar. Slowly mix to combine and then mix in the corn syrup, vanilla extract and mint extract. Gradually add remainder of powdered sugar, while also mixing in water as needed. Once all is combined, whip the frosting on high for about 5 minutes to help the sugar dissolve. If your frosting happens to get to soft, you can stick it in the refrigerator to thicken up again, or add a bit more powdered sugar.

3.  Frost your cupcakes and/or fill some chocolate cookies.

Next put it all together below!

Party DIY’s


Just in time to celebrate Unglued Fargo’s 3rd Birthday, we have a really rad DIY (or two!) for your next party. Here at Unglued, we really love EVERYTHING gold, bunting, dinosaurs, marshmallows, and we still can’t get out of the s’more kick! So here are all of our favorites combined into one crafty Party Setup!

DSC_7139DIY Bunting Cake Topper

Supplies Needed:

3 sheets of scrapbooking paper

2 wooden skewers


plain paper



glue gun


  1. Start off by drawing a triangle template.DSC_7069
  2. Cut out the triangle template and trace it onto the backside of each scrapbooking paper. Trace as many as you will need. Cut each piece out and set aside.  Cut two pieces of twine, one slightly shorter than the other. Placing a small dot of hot glue at the top of the skewer, wrap the twine around the skewer a few times. Do this for both ends of each piece of twine. You can adjust the lengths by how many times you wrap the twine around the skewer.


  1. Now, you will attach the triangles. Fold the triangles in half so the pointy ends match exactly. Add a touch of glue at the crease and also at the tips in order to close the piece together.DSC_7073
  2. However you place the paper on the twine is how it will hang, so make sure that you keep things flat and in line, so your bunting doesn’t go in different direction or hang funny. Repeat this with each triangle. It is good to lay out your triangles ahead of time to know your spacing before you glue them down. Lay them with even spacing and alternate the papers.DSC_7077

Now this simple little décor is ready to be used and can fancy up just a simple cake, cheesecake, or pie! It has a bit of a rustic feel, great for the fall season around the corner! ADORABLE. For a cool birthday, pair it with the DIY Animals below.

DIY Animal Candle Holders

Supplies Needed:
rubber/plastic animals (I bought a container at Wal-Mart and a few bigger ones from the local party store, but they can be found at Target, Hobby Lobby, etc.)

Wilton candles that come with the plastic holders on the bottom

hammer & nail

gold spray paint



  1. Take your rubber animal and center your nail on its back. Hammer down until you make a hole deep enough in order to fit your plastic holder into. (Choose animals that are big enough to carefully do this. Animals that have more of a flat back tend to work better). You can also use a drill for this step. If you are skilled with or own a drill, this could be easier because some of the animals are VERY hard.  I found that to bend the animal’s legs and smoosh its body to your hard surface, helps you to nail those with flimsy legs. Then, the legs just bend right back!DSC_7052
  2. Insert plastic holder.DSC_7054
  3. Spray paint gold. This may take a few coats to get it super gold and shiny.DSC_7064

TADA! Some rad little décor!

DSC_7087Now you can have a really fun birthday party for kids, or these things are so stinkin cool… they are great for your funky adult shindig!

Repurposed Leather Cuff

tan cuff

I love the look of vintage leather belts! I found myself picking up a few at a local thrift store, hoping I could find something to do with them and decided to make them into cuffs. Leather cuffs are a perfect way to add interest to a casual, boho look, especially for the summer! This craft was one of the cheapest I’ve come across and I know I will get plenty of wear out of them.



  • Leather belt
  • Leather punch
    • Don’t forget to search for a craft store coupon!
  • Leather snaps kit
    • Kit should include snaps as well as a long metal tool and circular metal piece
    • I found two sizes at the craft store and chose the larger ones, since the leather is thick and pretty tough
  • Hammer
  • Scissors


leather cuff circle hole1.  Cut the leather belt to a length that would fit around your wrist.
*There are several ways to measure: you can use an old cuff, tie string around your wrist, or use a tape measure. I chose to use an old cuff that I liked the fit of.

2.   Punch holes on each end of the leather piece.  
*I eyeballed about 1/2″ from the end and used the third biggest size of the leather punch.

metal tools

3.  Attach the snaps:

*I have labeled the pictures so it is easy to see where each snap component goes and which go together.

*Once you have placed the snaps in the holes, place the metal piece beneath one end and the metal tool on the top and hammer the metal tool. Continue hammering until the snaps are firmly in place.

*Do this to both ends.

4.  Once the snaps are attached, the bracelet is ready to wear.

DIY Galaxy Inspired Dress


I have always wanted my own galaxy inspired shoes or other apparel.  So I decided to revamp an old dress that was in the back of the closet. The galaxy scenery is so fun and a little out there/eye catching! Clothes can be so spendy, yet you won’t find something fun like this at the store. If so, it is more than likely going to cost more than necessary. Why not create your own fun piece of clothing that is dreamy, unique, and one of a kind!? You will feel like the center of the universe while wearing this piece of apparel. Promise. It is super cool, fun, and… made me feel a little more young  or alive (which to me, was a good thing). Bring out your inner fun/child and get in touch with the universe!


You will need:


  • A black 100% cotton dress (or a black tank top, t-shirt, bandana, or whatever your heart desires!).  Be sure that it is 100% or MOSTLY cotton. If it is not – the bleach could make your material weak and eat through or make it shrivel.
  • Bleach
  • Empty spray bottle
  • Fabric paint or acrylic paint in purple, blue, white and yellow
  • Glitter fabric spray paint
  • Sponges
  • Old toothbrush
  • Pencil

2-Dress1.  Lay the dress (or other garment) on-top a plastic garbage bag inside your bathtub. In the spray bottle, make a mixture of half bleach and half water. Spray the shirt unevenly – lightly mist some areas and then create areas of highly concentrated bleach (where you want your cosmos to be). I let it pool up a bit in these areas to create a nice effect. It will turn an orangey/pink color pretty immediately, but will take some time to lighten, so don’t go too crazy with the bleach. When I stopped spraying it looked like this:

3-BleachI then let it sit for about 2-3 hours until it lightened to look like this:


I then rinsed the dress very well to get the bleach out, layed it back on the plastic and went back over the highly concentrated spots with more bleach water… in order to get the spots as light as possible (it seemed that by rinsing the dress well helped get some of the color out and allowed the bleach to activate better a second time).  The second bleaching will take less time (30-60 minutes). Let it lighten until it looks white in the middle.

52.  Wash your garment and also dry it. Now you are ready to add color!

3.  Put some plastic or cardboard on the inside of your garment, so your paint will not seep through to the other side.


4.  Water down some purple paint, and with a sponge, go around the bleach spots.


You can also add a little bit to the black areas. (I used more watered down paint and then a bit thicker paint with less water toward the outside, to get the colors to blend well into the pink and white bleach spots).

5.  Using an additional sponge of watered down blue paint, go around the outside of the purple. Then apply some blue to the center of the black areas.


6.  Now spray the entire thing with Glitter Fabric Spray Paint! SO COOL.

7.  With a toothbrush, you will now add stars that stand out more. Using a toothbrush dipped in white paint, bend the bristles back so it scatters white flecks.


By holding the toothbrush at different angles, you’ll be able to create different size stars, which is important for creating depth. Concentrate the flecks more in the darker areas. Then, using a sharp pencil dipped in white paint, create larger stars by making X shapes. I also added some dot-shaped stars using the tip of the pencil.


8.  To make the light spots stand out more and make it a little less flat, I added a bit of yellow inside the white areas (mainly around edges).


And now you have a Galaxy piece of clothing that is super eye popping and Out of this World!



  • I painted one side of my dress one day, then came back and did the other side the following day. With the watered down paint, my dress got pretty wet, so it took awhile to dry in order to do the other side.
  • If you happen to not like how something turned out, or have extra pieces of material/scraps – You can always cut them up and make a scarf for your pet 😉 !


this morning

the stars folded into the moon,

sunk off in the horizon,

and the sun rose

just for you.


so if you ever feel alone

or doubt your self worth

remember one thing:


galaxies have shifted
just for the chance
to see you shine.

so shine.

Rag Flag Fourth of July DIY

{Blog writer below, Abbey, is a part of our Sioux Falls crew for the summer and has the best style ever (she’s been on the Sioux Falls shop ELOFSON street team!)!  If you try this Rag Flag out for the 4th and tag @ungluedmarket on Instagram with a photo of your finished product – and yourself – we’ll get you a $5 gift card just for getting all creative with us!}

If you’re looking for a way to show your pride for our beloved country, while maintaining a rustic style, we have the perfect DIY for you! With just a few materials and a couple hours, you will have a beautiful, patriotic piece to hang in your home this Independence Day.  We used inspiration from this blog and came up with some extra step-by-steps to share with you to make it happen!

in store photo front

Making the Rag Flag was super easy and I loved seeing it come together at the end. Although the purpose of the flag was for Independence Day, I think I’ll keep it around quite a bit longer, as I love the look of it.

My favorite part about this craft is how simple it is to make it your own–you have all the freedom (no pun intended) to choose what will make up your flag. For mine, I decided to stick with darker reds, lace, burlap, and denim. I picked up all of my materials (with the exception of the dowel) from a local thrift store, so, after it was all said and done, the cost of the project was in the ballpark of $20.

in store photo side

You can choose to either make this a no-sew craft, or, if you have the ability and necessary equipment, you can do a bit of sewing, as I did. However, I will provide the instructions to both methods below.

Materials needed

For the union: swatch of denim or any blue fabric at least 10″ x 12”

For the stripes: have fun with this! I recommend lace, burlap, ribbon, yarn, and any sort of fabric in variations of red and white.  {My “stripes” varied in width from ½” to 1”}

To hang: twine or yarn

Wooden dowel, cut to 24” in length


Tape Measure

Either a hot glue gun or a sewing machine, whatever fits your fancy (and your skillset)

White acrylic craft paint

Paint  brush


more supplies


1.  Obtain materials from craft stores and/or local thrift stores.

*Money saving tip: craft stores generally ALWAYS have a 40-50% off one regular priced item coupon that you can find online–it’s always worth it to check!

2.  Cut materials to appropriate sizes:

  • Cut the dowel to 24” in length.  {I shot for a size of about 2′ x 3’ for my flag, so I cut my materials accordingly (see diagram) – if your cuts are not exact, that’s okay! You can trim afterwards.}
  • For the union (denim swatch), 10″ x 12”.
  • For the stripes not connected to the union, 36” long.
  • If you’re using yarn, I recommend braiding thin yarn 9 pieces at a time, and thicker yarn 6 pieces at a time to add thickness and texture.
  • For the stripes beneath the union, 24” long
  • Cut one 22” piece of lace, fabric, or denim to cover the wooden dowel at the end.  {Make sure it is at least 1” wide.}

rag flag diagram

3.  Begin planning of your flag:

  • Lay out your materials on a tabletop or the floor and begin arranging your materials to your liking.
  • Make sure that the stripes are close enough together so that once it is finished, it is as full as you would like.

flag no dots

4.  Put the flag together by either sewing or using a hot glue gun.


  • Sew the materials to the piece of material you cut to 24” earlier, leaving enough space to adhere the 22” piece to the dowel itself.
  • Sew the shorter stripes to the bottom of the denim piece.
  • To attach to the dowel, you can either sew the 22” piece into a loop for the dowel to fit through, or hot glue the piece to the dowel itself.
  • Trim away extra fabric.

Hot glue:

  • Glue each stripe to the dowel itself, including the denim piece.
  • Glue the shorter stripes to the bottom of the denim piece.
  • Trim away extra fabric.
  • Glue 22” material cut earlier to the dowel on the side that would be considered the front of the flag.

5.  Trim stripes:

  • Trim the stripes across the bottom to a length you prefer.
  • Don’t worry about making them all even or exactly 36”–I love the look in the variation.

adding dots

6.  Add interest to the union (optional):

  • Use the white paint to complete the union of the flag by adding stars, polka-dots, hearts, etc.
  • Use twine or yarn and tie to the ends of the dowel–this will be used to hang the flag.

7.  Enjoy your work of art!

DIY S’mores Pie

S’mores Pie

{Blog writer below, Allie, is a part of our Sioux Falls crew and also is an incredible baker (find her HERE)!  If you try this recipe out and tag @ungluedmarket on Instagram with a photo of your finished product – and yourself – we’ll get you a $5 gift card just for getting all creative with us!}

Because Summer’s official date was June 21st. Because we like marshmallows. Because we are on a S’more kick. Because we want chocolate and we want it NOW. We bring you this, SUPER EASY, Chocolaty/Marshmallow goodness in pie form.


There are S’mores Cookies, S’mores Brownies, S’mores Cupcakes, traditional campfire S’mores… But check out this EASY S’mores Pie. It will please your Campfire S’mores craving right at home. It is the perfect Summer treat – Chocolaty, Toasted Marshmallow, and a great texture of Chocolate Fudge like Filling. Refreshing and comforting on a Summers Day! It would be great for a night indoors, to bring to a picnic or lake, or even a potluck. Loved by children and adults alike.  A classic favorite made as a pie! You can whip this simple recipe up in only 45 minutes. It is so easy, but extra delicious!

Supplies Needed:

9-inch pie plate

For Crust:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs

½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted

For Filling:
¾ cup heavy whipping cream
¾ cup milk
10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
2 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt
2 eggs, whisked
20-30 large marshmallows

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Gather Heavy Whipping Cream, Milk, Chocolate, Vanilla, Salt, Eggs and Marshmallows.


2.  Make the Crust:  Put the graham crackers in a bag and whack the heck out of them with a rolling pin (or just roll to crush)!


In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the crushed graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until evenly coated.


Press mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 8-10 minutes.


3.  In a medium saucepan, whisk together cream and milk.



Warm over medium-low heat. Add in chopped chocolate and pinch of salt.


(I enjoy using these Guittard Semi Sweet bars. The chocolate comes in perfect bars that are easy to break apart and measure the amount you need. They are extra rich and dark, bringing out a bit of tart fruit and cherry notes. But, you can also use any semi-sweet chocolate chips).

Stir until chocolate has completely melted and is smooth. Slowly add in vanilla and whisked eggs. Whisk this mixture very hard, until it is completely smooth.


4.  Pour chocolate filling into baked pie crust.


Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until chocolate filling is set and does not jiggle when pie is lightly shaken. Remove from oven.


5.  Using a kitchen shear or a knife, cut all marshmallows in half.


Place the halves going in a circle around the top of the pie.


Make sure oven rack is positioned in the middle of the oven, and set oven to the lowest broil setting (Usually 400 degrees). Place pie on the rack and lightly toast the marshmallows. This will only take about 1 minute. WATCH CAREFULLY and take the pie out as soon as the marshmallows are slightly browned.

You can also use a kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows instead.

Chill pie in the refrigerator to set for 2-3 hours. Or it can also be served slightly warm. Drizzle with chocolate sauce if desired.

*Creative Note:

Based on last week’s Marshmallow DIY… If you feel like going out of the way and having it over the top GOOD; You could create the pie above by baking it off, and then rather than topping with cut marshmallows, you could whip up fresh marshmallow batter (from the previous recipe) and just scoop the Marshmallow Goo on top of this pie (in a swirl fashion or even pipe it on-top) and let the marshmallow setup for its recommended 6 hours or more. After all set, you could pop it in the oven under broil to toast the top and ENJOY!

Homemade Marshmallows

Homemade Marshmallows!


{We are so excited to be adding to our Unglued crew with our team in Sioux Falls!  Allie is a part of our Sioux Falls crew and also is an incredible baker (find her HERE) – check out getting all DIY and sweet below with her awesome blog on marshmallows!  If you try this recipe out and tag @ungluedmarket on Instagram with a photo of your finished product – and yourself – we’ll get you a $5 gift card just for getting all creative with us!}

box of smores

We really love desserts here at Unglued! With the warm weather and the 4th of July around the corner, it is the perfect time to get CRAFTY with marshmallows!  One can definitely go to the store and buy a bag of Marshmallows for pretty cheap, but they aren’t as tasty and pretty as homemade. One could get pretty crafty with making homemade marshmallows, that is why we are bringing you the idea and sharing the simple recipe!

Here are a few things that could be done with marshmallow making – coloring the marshmallows with food dye (you could color half of the batter and make layers of pink, white, pink), you could dip the marshmallows in chocolate, or even flavor them with different extracts such as strawberry or any other flavor. One could color them red white and blue for the Holiday, or color them pink for a baby shower! They are simple and sweet (Just like all of us?!).

Homemade marshmallows aren’t exactly healthy, but they are at least free of unnecessary ingredients and can be an extra special treat. Making marshmallows is surprisingly pretty easy. However, you must give it your devoted attention and it can be a bit messy. Hot sugar is HOT and hot marshmallow clings to everything. But, melted gooey marshmallow.. come on, doesn’t that sound delicious?! Be ready for a bit of stickiness, but the whole process is pretty fast and believe me, pretty dang tasty! Be ready to lick the spatula and be ready to have a whole NEW love for simple marshmallows.

Supplies Needed:

Vegetable cooking spray

4 envelopes unflavored gelatin (3 tablespoons plus 1 1/2 teaspoons)

3 cups granulated sugar

1 1/4 cups light corn syrup

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

1 cup confectioners’ sugar

Parchment Paper



1. To get started, Spray a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish with vegetable oil. Line with parchment paper, allowing a 1 to 2 inch overhang on the long sides. Spray parchment with oil and set aside.


2.  Measure out all ingredients (as you can see, it doesn’t take much!).  Combine granulated sugar, corn syrup, salt, and 3/4 cup water into a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar.


Now let it boil, without stirring.


Keep boiling until mixture registers 238 degrees on a candy thermometer (approximately 10 minutes).

3. While the syrup is boiling, it is time to make your gelatin Bloom. Put 3/4 cup cold water into the bowl of an electric mixer. Sprinkle gelatin on top of the water. Let this mixture sit and soften for 5 minutes. It will then look like this:


4. Once your syrup has cooked four about 10 minutes and reached 238 degrees – Attach bowl with gelatin to mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. With mixer on low speed, beat hot syrup into gelatin mixture (be sure to mix the hot syrup in immediately, for it will start to harden fast). Gradually raise speed to high and let the mixture continue to whip. It will start to get white and start to fluff up. Keep whipping.


Beat until mixture is very stiff and fluffy/gooey (about 12 minutes).


Beat in vanilla. Pour into prepared dish, and smooth with a spatula (I used a flat scrapper, but any spatula would work and the marshmallow mixture tends to settle a bit also).


Let sit uncovered until firm, about 6 hours or overnight.

5. Now, get ready to cut the marshmallows! Sift 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar onto a work surface.


Unmold marshmallow onto confectioners’ sugar.


Remove parchment. Lightly spray a sharp knife with oil, and then cut marshmallows into about 2 inch squares. You will have to continue to spray your knife with oil in-between cuts. It gets a bit sticky and it goes easier if you keep the knife clean.


Sift remaining 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar into a small bowl, and roll each marshmallow in the sugar to coat.

Voila! Tasty, springy and gooey Homemade Marshmallows.

Happiness is Homemade.

Marshmallows can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week!

Get a bit CRAFTY! …


Once my marshmallows were all good and ready to go, I decided to dip some of them in chocolate. I used a bag of Dark Chocolate chips with about 1/4 to 1/3 cup butter melted over low/medium heat. Dip half of the marshmallow in chocolate and place onto parchment or wax paper. Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs. These marshmallows are also a great size for S’mores. They toast up perfectly golden – and smoosh into perfectly gooey S’mores, perfect for your Summer Campfire Nights!


You would bring extra love to the campfire with these babies!

Stay tuned for the next DIY blog post of an easy S’mores Pie. Right now, we are all about Marshmallows, Summer fun, and of course, Handmade!
