Wrapping twigs is such a quick and simple craft activity I have no idea why I haven’t done it before! It’s perfect for adults and children alike. All you need is odds and ends of yarn and some twigs. It is the perfect project for using up small pieces of yarn.
Glue coffee filters to a dollar store pumpkin? Pumpkin + Mod Podge + coffee filters + buttons + rickrack = another inexpensive fall pumpkin craft. (Before I'm attacked by the spelling police, I want to acknowledge that rickrack is also spelled ricrac, rick rack, and ric rac. It varies by manufacturer. My dictionary prefers rickrack, so I'm sticking with that. However you spell it, I'm talking about that wavy/zigzag ribbon trim.)
I really have a thing for old vanities, especially with big round mirrors. They can be expensive so I am always on the lookout for fixer uppers. I came across this little gem at a garage sale for $10! I could not contain my excitement and purchased without really looking it over (it was $10!)! I got it home and was really happy that the drawers were in excellent condition but found out that the mirror was broke on the right side, but everything else was pretty solid. No rebuilding needed. I just needed to figure out how to make the mirror work.
A few weeks ago, I had an idea to change up our bedroom once again. I was getting a new mattress from Lucid and I wanted a new bed to put it on. We didn’t have a new bed in the budget so I started thinking about how I could make a DIY headboard and bed frame. With excitement, I headed over to one of my favorite places to shop – my storage shed (nothing better than shopping your own space when you are on a tight budget). I was thinking about using some old doors as the DIY headboard and knew that I had some in storage, but couldn’t remember exactly what I had.
Seasonal wreaths are a great way to display some decor both inside and outside your house and also a great handmade holiday gift idea. Unfortunately, they are also pretty expensive if you buy them from the store. The good news? They are super fast and easy to make! This wreath was inspired by some pinecones my mom and I collected while camping over the summer. They were the perfect thing to make this DIY Pinecone Winter Wreath for almost no money at all. Read on to see how I did it!
Our mudroom is one of the most used rooms in our house. It is combined with our laundry room so there is always a constant flow of laundry and children in and out of this room. The mudroom is between our garage and the front hall, and when we enter the house it’s through the mudroom. We had a lack of functional storage for each of the kids, so shoes, coats and bags just ended up all over the floor. I really wanted to take care of the storage situation, and the first thing to take care of was building the benches.
A couple years ago, I painted my fireplace and built-ins white. I love color and patterns and prints, but I cannot commit to them longer than a couple months. My likes and favorites change with every season it seems. I love how people change the inside color of bookcases, it's adds character and depth to a room. So I set out to create something temporary that would damage my built-ins.I love animal prints (I think they act as a neutral), but since I wanted to do this cheap, I was going to have to create it from scratch. I bought some stiff display board at the art store and they were able to cut it down to the exact sizes I needed to fit the back of my bookcase.If you'd like to read the full original post, you can read it here.
Around this time of year, it's become a tradition to come up with an alternative Christmas tree idea. This year is no exception!The inspiration for this year's tree is from a visit to Epcot at Walt Disney World. Steph took the boat ride in the Land Pavilion and saw their version of a ladder tree, which became the model for ours. Take a look at how it came together!
