We’ve all been feeling inspired by them, and the other day I decided to turn a package of them into something cute and Valentine-y to hang on the wall. After a little playing and brainstorming I came up with these vertical Valentine banners – …

Tutorial: Valentine’s Day Infinity Scarf

Every time the holidays change, I make a point of visiting Dollar Tree to see what’s new for the season.  This year I spotted something that I was instantly drawn to: lightweight fabric scarves.  They were obviously made of cheap materials and weren’t much of anything special on their own, but I had a feeling that with a little DIY they could be transformed into …

Make Reversible Ribbon Bracelets

I’ll admit it: I am a ribbon junkie.  And I tend to buy more of it than I actually use – I just can’t walk away when I see a pretty pattern or color at an unbeatable price, so over the years my collection has grown to the point where it is nearing ridiculousness.  This project from Bonnie at Going Home to Roost is a …

Make an Epsom Salt Snowman Vase

Christmas is a great time to add touches of whimsy to your decor. This fat little snowman vase by Shannon at Madigan Made is so adorable and fun that you’ll feel sad packing him away at the end of the season! This one was made using a fishbowl-style vase, but any round container will work, including votive candle holders or recycled jars. …

Make a Spooky Raven Halloween Wreath

You know how it goes:  You walk into the dollar store and see something really neat.  You have no idea what you will do with it, but you know it has to be good for something, so you put it in your cart because you know you’ll kick yourself later if you pass it up.  Sound familiar?  That’s exactly what happened to Vivienne from The …

Tutorial: Ribbon Hoop Halloween Decorations

A couple of weeks ago I was at Michaels and all of the Halloween ribbon was on sale half price. How could I resist a deal like that? So I came home with a couple of fun, bright patterns. As I was trying to find space to cram them into my overflowing ribbon rack, I decided that some sort of Halloween craft incorporating ribbon was …

Make Vintage-Inspired Pumpkin Decor

I love projects that take new things and make them look old.  It’s a great way to create the illusion that you’ve spent years building a collection of antiques!  If you have vintage-y decor, this pumpkin project from Shannon at Fox Hollow Cottage will fit in perfectly.  I love how she mounted them on inexpensive “silver” platters, giving them the look of plaques.  It also …

Make Wallpaper Wrapped Candles

Yesterday we shared some spooky Halloween candles made using prayer candles.  Here is another idea for them that is a little more on the traditional side!  Mitzi from Mitzi’s Miscellany decorated them using bits from her collection of vintage wallpaper!  This is one of those instances where I find myself swooning over wallpaper.  Wallpaper is a funny thing like that; when it’s on a wall …
