Cut yourself a pattern from another valance or just about anything that your little heart can imagine or come up with. The possibilities are simply limitless!. I am posting this project to show you how to copy just about anything you want. I use this same idea to copy clothing also. Make your own pattern from other items.
Hey Loves! So I decided to take on the Dollar Store Challenge. I love a challenge. Check out these Anthropologie inspired Home Decor DIY's that are perfect for the fall. I purchased all items from my local Dollar Tree Store.
Sometimes it can be hard to find a duvet that fits your needs, but did you know you can make one? Even with a 45" fabric!

**update** An added benefit to this Halloween Decor is that you can remove the crumpled paper or stuffing and fold flat for storage. ** I belong to a Facebook group where people post pictures of things they have decorated. This woman posted a picture of her porch and it was decorated for Halloween. So cute. Amongst all her cute things were these burlap jack o lanterns and I asked her if she made them. She hadn't so I searched for them and I later found them online at AtHome. As luck would have it, it appeared that I had everything needed to make these so I thought I would give it a shot.
This particular plug-in pendant light came about when we were visiting my parents. My mom had this planter from the yard in her back porch. She wasn’t sure what she was going to do with it, but I immediately saw it as a plug-in pendant light.
I think everyone should have a happy place in their house, some where that they can go and just be happy. My craft room is my happy place! I just love being in there and love everything about it. I just finished up arranging and redesigning it and I can't wait to show you all!
So, I had a huge jar of left over glass pebbles--you know the kind that you get at the craft store in those little net bags. I use the flawless ones to make my custom art pendants and rather than throw away the flawed ones, I kept collecting them in a large glass jar hoping someday I would come up with a brilliant idea. Well, here it is! It's a work in progress...
If you're looking for a cute, unique way to consolidate your children's snacks and toys in their overnight bag this is the perfect little DIY project for you. If you have older littles, this would be a great weekend project to do together over a cold glass of milk and some homemade cookies.
My husband had a stack of old jeans that were just taking up space so I decided to make them into a quilt. This is an I Spy quilt, all the fabrics are different, no repeats. It's also a rag quilt because the edges are frayed.
I have a more detailed tutorial on my website. HangryFork.com
Like most homes, I have this plain builder's grade vanity mirror. I really really dislike it but taking it out and replacing it with two different mirrors seem like too much work...mostly the taking it out part. I could have frame it with moldings like most people do but that's no fun for me. So here is the before.
I have a very small living room which means I don't have any room for end tables, so no room for table lamps and no room for floor lamps. So to add more lighting, I came up with this design for wall sconces that incorporates a shelf that can double as small end tables. I made them using standard materials from the hardware store and only a few hand tools like a drill and a hand saw!
I'm not sure how many of y'all are ready for spring but I'm BEYOND ready for it! I feel like every time I hear a bird chirp, I'm going to look outside and it's going to be summer and 75 degress. Unfortunately, I live in NY so when I currently look outside, all I see is snow. It can't keep me from hoping and wishing though! I was browsing online for kitchen items (for when our reno is finished) and came across a super cute gardening basket from William Sonoma. So I decided to try and create a version for myself without paying top dollar. Once springtime arrives, I will be armed and ready for gardening. Even though I'm not a sewer, I was pretty happy with how this little project came out.We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers.

I took part in a thrift store swap with my fellow DIY bloggers to create some inspiring pieces. You can read the whole story on the blog (if you wish), but I had to upcycle two items - an old drawer and an empty pickle jar. I decided to make it pretty and turn it into a beautiful spring centerpiece at a fraction of cost (using items I already had at home). If you are re-creating this, I promise it will not cost you too much!
Fall is just around the corner, and if you're looking for an easy, quick and affordable way to bring some beautiful autumn colors into your home, then this DIY fall topiary is just what you need! Using mostly Dollar Store materials, this topiary costs only a few dollars to make, but it looks like something that would sell for much more!Let's start gathering the supplies and make this lovely topiary!To make this fall flower topiary I used:Fall flowers – I got mine from Dollar Store as their fall flowers are affordable and look great in a topiary like this.An 8 inch foam ball – the size is up to your desire, as anything from 6 inch to 10 inch will work. I made mine with an 8 inch ball, as that seemed like the best size for me.A flower pot or an urn – I had a galvanized metal flower pot on hand, so I used that. If you like the galvanized look, Amazon has some nice ones.Some hot glue.Once I gathered all the materials, I started pulling all the different colors of flowers and the suitable greenery out of the picks.
When Easter comes around, I can't help but jump for joy when stores start lining their shelves with those oh-so-cute, squishy, and colorful PEEPS! Bunnies, chicks, whatever you please , these marshmallow goodies have become a staple of this happy holiday. So, I thought why not incorporate them into my spring decor? I love the element of playfulness they add to my everyday topiary.
I recently got given a huge pile of old magazines, which when added to the stack I already had at home, made me realise that we really needed to come up with some crafty ideas to use them up! There are a few different ways you can make baskets out of recycled magazines, this basket weave design is probably the simplest and quickest, and I love the checkered pattern which it creates.
