Make It, Take It

Featured in this area were three local companies with interactive
DIY projects. From a succulent bar, to chalk art, guests visited
them to make their very own project!

Carver Junk Company is a local home furnishings store that features a collective of nearly 100 local makers when we’re not hosting succulent bars. Professionally refinished furniture, home decor, and handmade gifts can be found at our two retail locations. We also offer Interior Design, Home Staging, and Custom Furniture  Refinishing services!

The Succulent Bar is a DIY event, where you’ll select your plant(s), find the perfect container, and get your hands dirty (or use the gloves we supply) at our planting station. We’ve got all the supplies you need to plant your succulent, along with fun add-ons like mini gold dinosaurs, wooden plant tags with sayings like “please don’t die,” rocks, moss and everything you need to make it your own.

Succulents are easy to care for, requiring minimal maintenance and a sunny spot. If you’re still not confident in your green thumb, we’ll also have a variety of very realistic-looking faux succulents. Plant them in dirt just the same, and no one will know the difference! 

Each item is priced individually - pots, plants, and add-ons; so you can choose your own cost based on the items you select. Plant prices start at $5, and pots start at $6. Dirt is free! 

Need help? Our friendly staff will provide guidance & instructions for care while you plant.

Stop by the Denver Chalks booth for a fun Make & Take!
We’ll be using Chalk Couture products to make projects like these:

We have two DIY projects being offered throughout the show: 
Handcrafted Gnomes with a variety of different design options - more than what is pictured. Think Garden Gnomes, St. Patrick's Day gnomes, Spring Gnomes, etc. 
Not into Gnomes? Stop by and chalk a magnet. 12 different spring designs to choose from. 

What is Chalk Couture?  It’s a new DIY craft company.  Create chalk art and home decor in minutes - no fancy machine needed! 

Products include reusable silkscreen transfers, Chalk Paste, Couture Ink, chalkboards, totes and more.   

Familiar with chalk paint?  Chalk paste is a bit different.  The paste dries hard and doesn’t smear.  
Want to change your design out over time?  

No problem – the paste can be removed with a bit of water and the transfers are reusable!  You can easily change your décor all year long!

These products can be used on more than chalkboards and wood signs.  Try them on glass, mirrors, canvas and metal too!

Use the same transfer designs on fabric, t-shirts, pillows, mugs, pottery and more!  With a bit of heat, the designs are permanent.

Denver Chalks, independent designers with Chalk Couture, will be offering make and takes throughout the Home and Garden show.  

You choose a project and we'll show you how to chalk it!

We’ll also have Chalk Couture products and handcrafted items - including hand sewn hats - available for sale in our booth.
