If your idea of a gift is one that you make yourself, this piece of artwork by Tara at http://www.thedatingdivas.com/tara/two-little-lovers-decor/ would be perfect for Valentine’s day, a wedding or an anniversary. Her instructions are so easy to follow and she even provides links to the supplies. Plus, who doesn’t remember singing the little rhyme about two lovers sitting in the tree? I remember jumping rope to it many times.
I recently purchased these paper mache X and O’s from Amazon without a clear craft idea in mind; however, I knew I wanted to put them on a shelf in the living room.
Angela at blue i style has found a way to transform these plain brown letters into Kate Spade inspired letters of love. If you don’t like the neutral colors, liven them up with pinks and reds for a more romantic feel. Personally, I am going with neutrals so I can use them year round.
I thought this Joy Pallet Sign was a creative way to use leftover wrapping paper; however, for a more modern look the letters could be placed on the wall. You could also paint the wood or use a different type of wood and stain it. If your letters were not too large, and you wanted to hang this in the kitchen, you could mount them on a colored cutting board. Head over to Hometalk for the instructions.
I really get into Christmas decorations. I put up five full size Christmas trees and multiple small size trees. Since it is October, I decided to go ahead and put up my angel tree upstairs and place it in a space bedroom until closer to Christmas. One tree decorated, four to go! Since I was one a roll, I searched Pinterest for other inspirations and saw this Jingle all the Way plaque. Kerri Bradford’s instructions make this project look super easy I can’t wait to make mine.
Here’s a unique pumpkin idea – gold geometric pumpkins.
All the materials used can be purchased at Amazon. If you use styrofoam pumpkins they can be used for many years to come. Thanks to Tatertots & Jello for the inspiration and instructions.
Does your table need a little dressing up for fall? Right now there is a wide assortment of pumpkins available and cheese pumpkins make beautiful containers with their muted colors. I love the monotones in this fall harvest pumpkin centerpiece. I hope you enjoy it also.
With some branches out of your yard, Colorfill diamond vase filler and Aleene’s tacky glue that you can purchase from Amazon, you can make these beautiful Iced Branches to decorate your home for the holidays or for any special occasion.
This wreath made from mason jar lids and washi tape is the perfect size to brighten that spot in your house where you need a little color. I hung mine in the kitchen on the window above the sink. Perfect size! You could purchase the mason jar lids and tape online from Amazon or your local craft store.
Looking for ways to decorate without spending money? Check out these wine glass candle holders. Just place some small colored ornaments inside your wine glass and invert. Place a pretty candle (traditional or battery powered) on top and, voila! Instant decorations!
I absolutely LOVE everything about Christmas -the meaning behind it, the decorations, the hustle and bustle, the giving nature everyone has and I love making my own decorations. This
PVC Pipe Christmas Tree by Martha Stewart is one of my inspirations for this year. I love the colors she has used and the simplicity.
