A need for a new design element in my living room also helped me clean up my yard! I was searching for something new to decorate my mantle. Looking outside, I saw the perfect craft material for my latest project. Grabbing 15 twigs from my backyard, I made this simple rustic star. This star can be used as a rustic decoration, or embellished with lights, wire, or glitter to be the "star" of any room or occasion.
Sadly, I'm not very good at needlework. So I put my embroidery hoop to new use by creating a wall pocket wreath to display some cheery flowers in my home! This wall pocket wreath can be hung on the wall, on your front door, or can be placed on a mantle. Although I used a round hoop for my wall pocket, you can also use a rectangular picture frame.
I love all the jewelry chest makeovers that I see all over the web and wanted to do my own. However, when I went to the thrift store, the only option I could find was this weird Christmas-themed box. Yikes! I was a bit disappointed, but I decided to turn this old box into a romantic jewelry armoire. Using some paint, stencils, scrapbook paper, and some vintage postcards, I gave this old box a new look and a new purpose.
We love watching cardinals visit our backyard feeder during the winter months. So I couldn't resist making a cute cardinal ornament for our Christmas tree this year! Although this tutorial shows you how to make a cardinal, you could use a photo for reference to make a variety of birds for this ornament.
It's wonderful to display photos of friends and family in your home, especially during the holiday season. This cheery sign is a great way to incorporate your favorite photos into your Christmas decorating!
I had been looking for a set of reindeer figurines to display on my mantle during the Christmas season, but couldn't find exactly what I wanted. With a few basic craft supplies and some twigs from my yard, I made this cute woodland reindeer pair. These rustic reindeer are adorable additions to any home or Christmas tree decorating!
I think a lot of these small holiday gift bags are too pretty and charming to just use as throw-away wrapping for gifts. So I decided to use one as a home for a cute sock snowman! This finished project would make a great Christmas tree ornament or teacher's gift.
The handmade Christmas tree was inspired by an applique tree I saw in Pinterest years ago. With some math and planning, I created my own similar tree that I can proudly display year round. I'm not going to lie - this project was not quick, but I love the completed Christmas tree.
I wasn't really happy with how my fall decorations looked, so I grabbed a few handy materials to make this quick bat-themed Halloween project. I think it adds just the right bit of fun to my fall mantle!
