DIY Sunburst Mirror - Under $10

I'm in the process of renovating my son's room. I put up roman shades in his room and took down the old blinds that were up. After I took the blinds down, I realized that I could make them in to a pretty cool mirror. So, that's what I did. The project ended up costing me under $7 and took a few hours of my time.

DIY Christmas Yard Sign

I have signs of quotes all over my house. I buy them every chance I get and I especially load up on them when I can find a good sale. I’ve even made a few of my own and you can check out that tutorial here. What I didn’t have were any signs or quotes outside in my yard. Yes, I know there are other ways to decorate my yard. I could try gnomes, trolls, or even those cute little stone rabbits and frogs, but that’s just not me. I needed something that would bring a little piece of my home outside and what better time than now? All of my neighbors have their yards decorated for Christmas and they all look so nice. I’ve never really decorated the outside of my house for the holidays, besides hanging a wreath on the front door. This year I wanted to make a change, so I made this adorable little sign to go with a few other decorations. Enjoy!
