I wanted to give our front porch a little holiday love, but I wanted to do something other than the traditional wreath on the door. Enter: the vintage ornament doormat. Here's how to make your own!
If you're wanting to give a handmade gift this year, but hate starting from scratch, this is the project for you! The gift givee will be so blown away by the beauty of this throw that they won't even realize you didn't make the whole thing!
We're about twelve days out from Christmas (12 Lords-a-leaping!) and there's still time to get a tree up if you haven't already. If you don't have the space for a big one, why not make your own artificial tree? Yeah. That's right. It can be done. And with something I never would have thought to use!
Sometimes I take advantage of the freebies at the hardware store. There are just so many uses for so many of the products! Paint sticks are free for customers to take and I have used leftovers for many projects. This table runner is an easy project that you can whip up in an afternoon. And all of the supplies can be found at the hardware store. Win win.
I always say it, but it really is amazing what a coat of paint can do. The color possibilities are endless and a new paint job just breaths life into anything! We've been needing some dining chairs for about a year now, and I found some old yellow ones at a yard sale for $3 each! Needless to say, I scooped those up and gave them some DIY lovin'!
Thanksgiving is tomorrow. And if you're unsure of what you're doing with the table, look no further! 24 hours is more than enough time to whip out this Scandinavian-inspired beaded candle holder!
What do you do when you want a Christmas tree and an advent calendar, but you live in a tiny space? You make an advent calendar out of paper and and it becomes your tree, that's what!
Every nursery needs a dresser/changing table/statement piece, am I right? When putting together our daughter's nursery, I knew that I wanted something unique, but still simple. I found an old white dresser at a local flea market, and gave it a few coats of coral paint. Instant gratification, but it was still missing something.
There's just an indescribable feeling when projects you've been working on are finally finished. That's exactly how I feel with our nursery. It's absolutely my favorite room I've ever been in. It turned out just like I wanted and I can't wait for you to see! Ya just gotta look.
But first, you'll remember the before...
And the inspiration...
In my mind, tassels are cool. Some people think they're too out-dated or traditional, but I'm telling you, the tassel trend is on the rise. And it's even more cool if you make your own. And then you can put them on everything. Like throws, pillows, bags, and art!
We're kicking off holiday gift guides today with some DIY gift ideas for the men in your life. I swear, guys always seem a little bit more tricky to make gifts for, but these homemade gift projects are too cool not to try. So, here are fourteen of my favorite awesome gifts to make for men this holiday season.
I am loving all the wall sconce projects I have been seeing lately. Hanging from the wall allows space to be saved beside the bed! These gilded accordion ones are on my to-do list! They look so simple!
Have you ever heard of Horrorgami? It's exactly what it sounds like. And it is taking the nation by storm this Halloween. Want to join the spooky paper movement? Of course you do!
Let's talk about twigs! They're just the most affordable (read: free) craft material there is! And during the fall, they're all over the ground! My door was feeling particularly bare this holiday season. It only took an hour to give it a spooky face lift in preparation for Halloween!
Wrapping twigs in yarn is a quick and fun way to incorporate the colors of the season. By shaping...
Halloween is a week away. That means we've still got plenty of time to hang up this spooky and fun LED garland! And if you're a fan of table tennis, you likely have the supplies to make it!
