Every once in a while, I think it’s fun to challenge ourselves to do something new and different. I wanted to make this Baby Carrot Wreath Tutorial for Spring out of supplies that I already had and really challenge myself.When I started browsing through my craft room, I really wasn’t sure and had no clue I would end up with lots of baby carrots. But now here we are, and I just love it. I love that every supply that was used for this wreath was something I already had on hand and put to good use. There is something about the joy of being thrifty!
I always have hanging baskets, all over the place! On stands, on my trees anywhere I can find a place that needs some color, and every year have to replace the coconut liners, this year they had gone up to $4 a piece 🙄 You can buy a new basket and liner for $5.00! It was going to cost me a fortune this year, I use to get them at the Dollar Tree for $1.00, but that still adds up when you have a lot of hanging baskets! And then there is the dreaded don't to forget to water them everyday in this Arkansas heat they dry out fast and there is nothing worse than killing a plant right off the top of the season, so I created a heat tolerant , permanent liner and well maybe once in a while I might put a new coconut liner in but that is a big maybe, lol, but not every year anymore! Save $$$ to buy more plants!

Make your own cute garden decor simply and inexpensively! Here’s an easy step by step tutorial on how to make these DIY Terra Cotta Garden Mushrooms to brighten up and add a touch of whimsy your gardens.
Those that know me, know I live, eat and breathe reclaimed wood. So when the opportunity came to 'spring up' my mantel with something new, I ran to the wood pile. Well... more like broken barrel. After staring at the rubble for a spell, this vision appeared... would this work? I admit, it's a tad off the wall... but hey... what stuff of mine isn't? :)
It's blossom time and the trees are bursting out all over! They are so pretty - especially this year since old man winter roared and hung around way too long.
Since these beautiful blossoms won't last long, preserve those wonderful spring memories by re-creating gorgeous blossoms that will last forever!
Winter's grip is finally loosening. Spring is in the air. Celebrate with this easy DIY Springtime wreath that'll make you want to kick off those boots and walk barefoot in some new grass!
Around this time last year, I created a garden style wall monogram for my littlest sister's wall above her bed. I love it to pieces but it missing something and well I couldn't figure it out right away. This wall was missing its wow factor and now it has one with this beautiful wall garden is just what this wall needed.
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!
I am so ready to welcome spring but didn't want to make a run-of-the-mill spring wreath for my door. I decided to finally put a basket I bought four years ago to use and make a basket of blooms!
I was inspired by a Forsythia Wreath I saw in Blogland, and decided to make my own. That then inspired me to use a red, yellow and white color scheme for my Spring Porch design. I used a combination of red primroses, yellow marigolds and pansies and white candy tuft. Come on over and see how I incorporated it all into my "the little porch that could." :)
When I saw this old rusty thing in the antique store, I just knew it would make a cute wreath (and a great project for the blog hop), and with a little help from Mom (she's the most awesome bow maker I know) and a few adders from Michaels (all on sale), we came up with this super cute Easter wreath that brings a bit of whimsy to this industrial find.
This rusty old thing once housed a medium-gauge wire, known only because there was still a bit left behind, and I decided to leave the wire on the spool for authenticity's sake. A not-so-quick trip to Michael's supplied all the other goodies for this wreath, including some grapevine wrapped carrots, cute orange ribbon, a metal painted bunny and a magnetic wooden initial letter. Now let me tell you, picking out all my goodies for this project was by far the most time-consuming and difficult task of this whole thing. Once I got all the parts and pieces home, Mom and I put everything together with a bit of floral wire and a dab of hot glue, and that was all it took.
I picked the orange ribbon because the carrots weren't orange and that just didn't seem right. The bow also adds some much-needed color to the project and who doesn't just love polka dots. The magnetic initial letter was a bonus since it stuck right to the metal rabbit I found. Of course, it's our family initial, but I'm thinking some folks might think it stands for "spring," and I'm okay with that. Although you can't see much of the carrots, I really like those rustic veggies and think the grapevine kind of mimics the wire on the spool. I gotta say I'm pretty in love with the way this little rustic wreath turned out....
I tried my hand at creating a vintage umbrella on door display like that and it didn't go exactly as I envisioned...Hi Liz here from SimpleDecoratingTips.com a DIY & decorating blog where I share my experiences as a designer and DIY-er to encourage you to try something new too. Sometimes my projects don't turn out like I expect though.
I have been dreaming of a wooden planter box for my kitchen table for awhile now. It was SO easy to make this box and I am not sure why I waited so long to finish this project. It makes the perfect Spring centerpiece!
We’re enjoying some welcome 70 degree temperatures that have my palms itching to dig in the dirt! Our frost date is April 15th so I’m biding my time and satisfying my craving for flowers with spring bulbs. . .and chalkboard blooms!
Once again the wonderful world of Pinterest inspired/challenged me to try to create this pin right here for less! Happy to report that I made this for $3 since all I had to buy was the three bushels of flowers since I had everything else. Head to your Dollar Store soon though because they tend to only have florals for a little bit. If they aren't available there, I know that Michael's has their Spring florals for 50% off out here in CA!
Some bunny is ready for spring! Using a little ribbon and a wreath form...our front door is ready to welcome our springtime guests! For just a few minutes of your time, you can create this easy front door wreath.
I don't know about you, but if I could have nice fresh flowers in my house every day I totally would! I can't get enough of them! Now that spring is here I thought a floral piece would be a nice touch in the house and decided to make a floral table runner. Add a touch of lights to a floral garland and you have a great piece for a nice dinner. We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.
If you are a gardener or have a friend who loves gardening, this is the perfect project to add some gardening theme decor to the front door, and best of all, it all came from the dollar store! The entire project was just $8!
This centerpiece is totally Pinterest inspired but I thought it'd be perfect to show you 1: to not be intimidated by creating a centerpiece and 2: just how easy it is! This legit cost me $15 because all I needed to buy was florals!
An overly festive wreath isn't ideal for everyone so here is another option! I wish I could've thought of another alternative for the "grass" I DIY'ed but I can't wait to hear what you guys would do in the comments down below. This wreath cost me $8! Who says decor had to be expensive?
