Christmas shopping can be tough. My kids both had birthdays a couple of months ago and still have toys that are unopened and not yet played with. I’m not super excited to contribute even more to that mess. Making something by hand for them feels better to me than buying something new off the shelf. This rustic DIY tic-tac-toe board is something that the boys can play together and also something that will look nice left out on the coffee table as decor. Win, win.
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!
Do you have any hockey lovers in your life? My eight-year-old son is a hockey player and a hockey fanatic! This easy handmade hockey puck display is the perfect gift for the hockey lover in your life. And the even better news?! It is super inexpensive and easy to make too!
The holidays are upon us everyone, like it or not! This year has gone by so quickly and the holidays have snuck up on me! So, although I look forward to celebrating, I’m having a little trouble getting in the mindset. If you are like me, you likely spend a lot of time decorating your table for the holidays just to have to move everything off of the table when meal time comes. It’s annoying. So this year I decided to make a DIY wooden centerpiece box for my table that not only looks lovely, but is portable so you can easily remove the whole box from the table when meal time comes. Super functional, super easy, and really beautiful!
Ok, I hesitate to post this project because it was SO easy. Like so, so, so, so easy. I feel like I’m sharing a dirty little secret or something. But it’s super cute, sturdy, and I get a TON of compliments on it! So I would say this is definitely a project you can and should tackle. Like today. Make your own outdoor coffee table using wooden pallets and tile. Earn a little DIY street cred. HA!
Deciding on a coffee table style is hard, y’all. Like, I have seriously been back-and-forth about what type of coffee table I want in this space probably since we moved in about three years ago. For a while I wanted a tufted ottoman but then decided that wasn’t super practical with two kids who like to rub food and crayons on everything. Then I wanted something more modular that could double as seating when people came over but again changed my mind. Ultimately I decided that a DIY farmhouse style coffee table would be the best fit for my space. This coffee table is both beautiful and functional and I will walk you through how to make your own!
