Hey there friends! Can you believe Mother’s Day is just next weekend? If you’re still searching for that special mother’s day gift or maybe just a little something to freshen things up around the house for springtime, here’s a simple eucalyptus wreath that you can make! The great thing about eucalyptus is not only is it aromatic, but it can also repel bugs or fleas in your home.
Christmas is just a couple of days away and the mantel is ready and awaiting the arrival of good ol’ St. Nick! I’ll share the wintertime decorations with you and show you an easy way to take a plain holiday wreath and dress it with a little flocking to make it just right for a snowy theme. Best of all, these decorations can stay up even after the holiday! [Please click to continue reading…]
Finally, here it is less than a week before Christmas, the holiday home tour! Hey, better late than never, right? Yeah, I’ll go with that. I cleaned things up around here a little (and what didn’t get cleaned, got shoved out of camera site!) to get things ready for the holidays! Let’s take a looksie shall we at the holiday home tour of 2014.
Happy Holidays!! It’s after Thanksgiving so I can say that now, right? For crying out loud, it’s after December 1st already! Can you believe it?? I think I missed a few days… must have been the turkey coma. All of the sudden Christmas is 23 days away!! Did that just send you into a head spinning panic whirl?? I’m right there with ya!
I’ve been feverishly trying to get all the holiday decorations up and thankfully I think we are ready. Well, maybe. In any case, I got up some holiday front door decor so for anyone that is just passing by the house it looks like we totally have it all together. Nevermind the chaos that is going on behind that closed door…
I can’t believe it’s already October!! I spent part of the weekend trying to get some Halloween decorating done, starting with this Grandinroad Inspired Halloween Wreath which is donning the wicked mantel this year. This wreath caught my eye because of all the different patterns and I loved the broom and witch hat accessories. I set out to a few craft stores and made a knock-off version of this wreath for only $40, and I’ll show you how. [Please click to continue reading…]
Earlier I shared my fall mantel display which included more neutral colors and natural decor like this jute Fall wreath. This wreath is so easy to make, but does take a little time. Here’s how I made this wreath for less than $15!
I used a white 16″ styrofoam wreath form for the base. You can see I had a little helper on this one. (Love those little baby hands!) 🙂 [Please click to continue reading…]
