I used to scrapbook quite a bit a few years ago, but have since lost the desire to spend hours and hours putting together a book that generally sits on a shelf or under a bed gathering dust. Since then, I have moved on to shadow boxes. This is because I view it as creating one great scrapbook page that gets to be on full display in your home. With my niece arriving into the world sometime this month, I wanted to make her a welcome gift with this shadow box DIY.
My sister found this image floating around Pinterest but could not find the source or the tutorial that is supposed to be linked to it. She asked me to make her a few trees to decorate her house with. Since it was so easy and I spent far too long looking for the original tutorial, I thought I’d share how this wire wrap tree DIY with you all.
Happy December! Ever since I made the DIY ear cuff, I’ve been obsessed with the copper aluminum wire I used for it. I’ve made some custom pieces for friends since then and have been toying around with other projects to share with you all. Last year I made some air dry clay ornaments, this year I was inspired by this Pinterest find. The wire tree ornaments looked super easy to make (turns out it was!) and I had all the materials on hand already (double score!).
Good morning all, sorry for the impromptu break these last two weeks. I had every intention of posting while on vacation and after I got back, but the long days site-seeing caught up to me. I caught a sinus infection and couldn’t summon the energy or find the time to put together anything to share. I was also trying to figure out how to post using only my iPad because I did not bring a laptop with me but ran into some glitches. I’ll need to work them out because I intend on sharing my upcoming Europe trip with you all while on the road!
Anyways, now I’m back, rejuvenated and ready to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday coming up! If you like to decorate for the holidays this DIY is for you. I love the paper lanterns that are so popular, I thought it would be fun to put a patriotic twist to it.
Like with my style, I tend to switch things up with my bedspread every few months. I had spruced things up with some pillow covers in the winter, and now for the spring I wanted to change my duvet cover and my decorative pillows. I did not, however, want to spend a ton of money to do so, I decided to DIY my own duvet cover.
A few months ago I had posted a tutorial on how to customize an IKEA bath mat. I’m slowly but surely, making over my bathroom on the cheap with easy DIYs that will take a weekend afternoon max. This month I thought I’d share with you all how I customized a mesh recycling bin I bought from the dollar store the other week to look like it was dipped in paint.
This week’s DIY is a mail sorter makeover! We’ve had this sorter for ages and it was looking a bit beat up and sad, so I decided to give it a bit of a polish and add some pizzazz to it. I think this could be easily redone with one found at a thrift store or Goodwill.
My first few posts when starting this blog were DIYs that made over plain or simple items, I haven’t done one in awhile, so I thought I would share my filing case makeover with you all. I know with the coming of the new year many of us are starting clean trying to keep their resolutions, some which may be keeping organized. Why not make over an old file case or box to help rejuvenate and motivate you?
