Does your porch need a little sprucing up for the holidays? We've got you covered! Check out these stunning ideas!
The past two Winters I have been really into crafts and decorating with these wooden discs. Problem is I have been spending a small fortune to buy them on Etsy and have you seen how much craft stores are charging for them? Well on Thanksgiving I noticed my Brother-in-law had done some landscaping in his yard and had a pile of branches to burn. After dinner I went our back and grabbed two small branches.
Organizing my freezer was a task that I had been avoiding for way too long. After each grocery shop, I would gather up my frozen products, shove them in, and slam the door as quickly as possible.As you can imagine, every time I opened the door to use something, I spent time cleaning up the avalanche of frozen french fries and kiddies ice cream pops that ensued.
For all of you DIYers out there who are hesitant to make things because of the lack of tools, this project is for you! I assembled this project using nothing but a staple gun! You can also choose to just use a hammer and nails. I love vintage wood skis and I saw some on sale at Pottery Barn for a low price of only $399.00 dollars (https://www.potterybarn.com/products/found-wooden-skis/?pkey=e%7Cwooden%2Bskis%7C4%7Cbest%7C0%7C1%7C48%7C%7C1&cm_src=PRODUCTSEARCH) Well, not sure about you, but that's way out of my budget! So I decided I make a set myself for the holidays. Lets get started
It's time for Christmas DIYs! And you know what that means...glitter everywhere. I love glitter, but I hate finding it all over my house. These beautiful ornaments will solve that problem for you by letting you enjoy the beauty of glitter on your Christmas tree or in your holiday decorations while keeping the mess contained. And it uses wood floor cleaner. Yep, wood floor cleaner that I already had in my cleaning cabinet.First grab a clear ball ornament and pour enough cleaner in to cover the entire inside of the ornament. Turn the ornament upside down and drain the excess cleaner in a small paper cup for a minute or two. (Bonus: you can reuse the excess cleaner that collects in the cup on the next ornament.)
I pressure washed my porch many times but could not get all the stains out/off, so I decided to paint it and use the stone stencil to give it a stone look finish with more colors.
First I painted the whole thing with one color so that it would look like a mortar or grout when I used the stencil with the other colors. I used 3 other colors in each of the blocks of the stencil and used a brush to scrub them into the concert which made each one come out a different look or color of stones.
It made the porch a little cozier while sitting out in my swing. I spend more time on the porch now, in my swing.
Today would be a great day to use up a few of those pill bottles that you have been collecting. Why not turn a few into Holiday tree ornaments and be able to add them to your Christmas ornament collection. This is an easy project and will upcycle a few of those plain bottles that have accumulated over time.
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!
I had this antique lingerie chest for a few months and when i first saw it, i fell in love! The dainty legs, many drawers and the detailed konbs made this piece move to the top of my project list! I really wanted this one to be unique. I decided to do a design on the drawer fronts and keep it very feminine.
I love dried natural looking flowers, grass, branches, etc. So it is no surprise that I love this wreath made out of dried wheat and it is a great decoration for fall and the Thanksgiving holiday.This project definitely makes a mess. Be prepared with a broom and a vacuum. Beware the wheat gets stuck in your carpet.Here is what you need.
