DIY Simple Fall Wreath

Simple Fall Wreath

We may already be a few days into fall, but I’m still trying to get my act together to set up all my decor. Better late than never I suppose! I’ve been dreaming up wreath for a few weeks now … think ‘classic fall.’

Some twigs here, branches there.

Autumn leaves.

Perhaps a surprise pumpkin.

And a few touches of gold thrown in the mix.

For those of you who work on a similar timeline, here’s a simple wreath to charm up that front door. Cus when you’re already behind, quick and simple is the way to go 😉

when you realize

When you Realize you’re a Crazy Pregnant Lady … Plus Thrifty Finds you should Never Pass Up

Part 1: When you Realize you’re a Crazy Pregnant Lady

More accurately … when you realize you’re not the “normal” kind of crazy pregnant lady.

I’ve heard that it’s common to get the “nesting” urge around the end of a pregnancy. Makes sense since (say that 10 times fast … sense since sense since sense since …)

Anyways, let’s continue.…

DIY Wine Bottle Wedding Centerpieces

Recently, I helped my close friend (and sister in law) DIY a set of wine bottle centerpieces for her wedding reception. Who doesn’t love wine bottle centerpieces for a wedding?!? They add a delicate touch to your tablescape, offer additional space to fill with flowers, and can be used to number the tables! Plus, it gives you an excuse to drink that many bottles of wine … it’s a win-win.

 We got together the other day and knocked out 12 of these in about 45 minutes! Super simple and quick.

Old Jean Coaster Set

I’m very excited to say that today I have a fun project from my younger sister, Marquette. She got ahold of me last week and asked if I’d be interested in posting one of her latest DIY’s.

Well, of course!

She didn’t know she’d be posting a tutorial of this project when she did it, so there aren’t many photos to go along with the steps. However, I think you’ll still be able to figure things out as you attempt this DIY.…

DIY Wood Nursery Decor

When I started looking for decor for the new baby nursery, I did what anyone would do – headed to Pinterest for inspiration! There are so many adorable ideas out there, but one of my favorites was a wooden plaque with a simple quote and image. I thought about just purchasing it, but then decided I wanted to make a special one for my new little boy 🙂

And I knew exactly what to write … that never happens for me.

Transfer Images onto Wood: Wax Paper Method

How in the world do you get a cute design onto a piece of wood without using vinyl or being a super skilled artiste?

I pretty much typed that into google …

Turns out, there are some really clever people out there who do this sorts of stuff all the time and have blogs with step-by-step instructions … imagine that!

I went through a few different instructionals (yeah, that’s not a word but you get what I’m trying to say) and found that I really liked the wax paper transfers. Simple, easy, to the point.

I tried it out and figured I might as well put a quick tutorial up here for easy reference!…
