I love some holiday decorations that can stay out longer than a month! This Burlap and Fabric Spring Wreath comes out just before St. Patrick’s Day and hangs around until April or May. With the natural texture of the burlap and the spring colors of green and white, it reminds me that longer days and vegetable gardens are just around the corner. Read on for directions on how to make your own burlap and fabric spring wreath.
I’m excited to have my very first Mantel Display to share with you. Yes, I have a fireplace in my home, but Mr. Salvage won out having it as the resting place for his flat screen TV, so this bar buffet cart in my dining room will have to do for my decor mantle for now Almost all of the decorations were DIY, and over the last week or so I’ve shown you the tutorials for them. Here’s the pulled together look, just in time for February and Valentine’s Day
I just love all of the ways that felt can dress up your Valentine’s Mantle Decor. This time I’ve used felt to make topiaries, set atop dollar store glass vases. This project is oh so cheap, and easy enough for anyone to do! Follow along for a step by step guide with pictures.
I was inspired to make these pipe cleaner balls after I found this clear teardrop pattern glass at a thrift store last week for $2. I loved the scallops on it, and thought the curves would be perfect for my Valentine’s Mantle. And…we can make these little cuties ourselves for any color of the season.
I love wreaths, the way they just brighten up the front door, whether you’re coming home from a long day of work or welcoming vistors over. These yarn wreaths are easy to do. can be made for under $10, and hold up well for use year after year. It’s been awhile since I made one of these, so I thought one for Valentine’s Day would be perfect. The fun colors can definitely decorate through the spring also, so extra points for Valentin’s Decorations that don’t have to be packed away at the end of February.
I just bought my first bottle of mod podge and I’m loving it! I whipped up these total diva picture frames for around $3 each and an hour or so of time. They’ll make great Valentine’s Gifts for that special someone
I have a very au natural christmas tree with just a little bit of sparkle. White lights, ornaments in cream, gold, silver, glass and natural rafia and hemp…I haven’t purchased a single ornament this year, but wanted to add to my collection, so I made several of my own ornaments in these two styles. Here’s a full tutorial on how you can make your own DIY Hemp Ball Ornament and DIY Shell Ball Ornament.
Gift giving doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, and yes, you can make a handmade gift from the heart that doesn’t take hours on end to complete. Here’s a tutorial for a handmade pedestal bowl, which is going to be given to my sweet grandmother for Christmas this year!
