I have a true obsession for florals. Whether it’s scrapbook paper, stencils, fabric designs, or notebook covers, I’m always find myself drawn to ones that have a floral design! This isn’t a new phase for me. It’s one that’s been going on for as long as I can remember. When I was younger, I would go through my mom’s Better Homes and Garden’s magazines and cut out all of the pages that had flowers on them and turn them into collages. It was such a fun activity for me since I loved arranging all of the flowers together to create my own garden masterpieces.
My latest ongoing project has been working to update decor pieces in my living room. As I try to do this on a budget, I’ve been looking for inspiration that I can DIY myself. I wanted to take my plain picture frames from drab to fab without needing to put forth a ton of effort. Once again, florals have found their way into my updated design. I got this AMAZING floral pattern stamp from Rubberstamps.com. I was really drawn to the delicate and intricate floral designs. I grabbed this stamp because I thought it would be prefect to create a DIY floral photo matte for my boring frame. Since I knew I was covering a larger space, this 4″ x 6″ stamp was the perfect size. Check out the full tutorial below to see just how simple it is to create your own DIY floral photo matte!
I’ve really gotten bitten by the Christmas bug this holiday season. I just can’t stop making festive decor for my house! My next project is from a wooden teepee I got from Walnut Hollow. I’ve been holding on to this piece for a while waiting for the right project. Since I have all of the Christmas feels, I decided to transform my adorable teepee into a Christmas tree! Get the full details below. (more…)
Shortly after Thanksgiving I was doing my annual Christmas trip to Crate & Barrel walking around looking at all of the pretty holiday things. I love Crate & Barrel any time of the year, but around the holidays is my absolute favorite time! During my casual stroll through the store, I came to the garlands section. Ugh, everything was so incredibly cute!
What really caught my eye was this really cute felt holly garland. Now it wasn’t crazy expensive or anything but the materials to make it were so basic that I knew I could recreate it myself for a fraction of the cost. So, I headed to Joann’s and picked up some felt sheets, pipe cleaners, and pom-poms to make my very own version of the Crate & Barrel felt Garland. (more…)
Every year I decide to add a little bit more to my Christmas Decor and this year is no different. I wanted to switch things up a bit and instead of using the message board I had on display last year, I wanted to create a sign that said “Merry Christmas”. I used the Walnut Hallow Floral Wreath Sign and decided to think outside of the box. (more…)
We have officially entered the holiday season. Trees are going up, mantles are getting dressed and the hunt for the perfect gift has started. With all of the planning and prep that goes into the holiday season, it can be the most stressful time of the year. We all manage to add an enormous amount of items to our to-do list before December 25th. It’s hands-down the busiest time of the year! (more…)
I’ve been putting together a list of holiday decor I want to make this year. Every single year I somehow manage to have an ever-growing list of project ideas and high hopes that I’ll actually complete all of them. This year, I’m getting a head start on my Christmas crafting with this DIY Silver Matte Metallic Snowflake Candle Holder! (more…)
The leaves around here have really been putting on a show. It feels like every single tree is trying so hard to outdo its neighbor with even more vibrant leaves. I’ve enjoyed watching the leaf changing process. I swear it’s like every single leaf changed colors over night! (more…)
Now that Halloween is over, most people have dove head first into Christmas. I personally think it’s way too early. Don’t get me wrong, I’m OBSESSED with Christmas, but I like to celebrate holidays one at a time. I’m not down with getting my Christmas tree up until the day AFTER Thanksgiving–and no sooner!
In an effort to embrace Thanksgiving, I’e decided instead of moving straight to Christmas that I would do a couple of projects dedicated to this Fall holiday. I just feel bad for Thanksgiving since it’s become the forgotten holiday. (more…)
When I was younger my mom made my Halloween costumes. When I got older, I made my own Halloween costumes. To keep the tradition alive, I’ve made Tommy and Evie’s Halloween costumes that last two years. I figure I have to hold on to this tradition as long as I can because one year they’re going to decide on what they want to be and I may have to purchase it from the store! Tear. :( (more…)
Halloween season is here! To most, I’m probably super behind on getting my decorations up. Many people in my ‘hood have had their pumpkins and ghosts on display since the first of September. Me, I just can’t get behind Halloween decor when it’s 85 degrees out and my flowers still look amazing! It just seems wrong to hack down beautiful flowers that are at the peak of the season, only to replace them with Mums. So, I waited until about October 4th to really hit the Halloween holiday hard.
