Retro Painted Flowers | The Postman’s Knock
Have you ever wanted to make your own painting but didn’t know where to start? Well this painting is the perfect place to start - it steps you through every single part of this piece, and it’s so easy that I reckon if you can hold a paintbrush you can recreate this! I love the retro flower look and you can use whatever colours you want. Paint it on paper, on a canvas or on your wall!

Ombre Rope Necklace | Brit + Co
I bought some rope with the intention of making a few hanging planters (please see previous posts to hear about how this ended up) and now have a bevy of rope. I was thinking of making some jewelry, but didn’t want to look like a lost sailor. I love ombre so this is perfect - it adds colour but still gives you the neutral of the rope. You could even double dip this to get some more colour - if you have an outfit that you’ve had trouble accessorizing, this is the perfect solution.

Multiple Taper Candle Holder | Inspired By Charm

I love this candle holder and the fact that IBC has shown them in two colour ways - black and gold and white and black. Black and gold is a big colour combo right now - you’ll be seeing it more and more in the stores. But there’s something classic and black and white. This would be great for a centrepiece for your table - like a modern candelabra!

Sharpie ‘Wallpaper’ | Vintage Revivals
A while ago you might remember that I DIYed my bathroom wall with stickers. It didn’t end well - the humidity made them fall off constantly even though they were meant to be akin to vinyl stickers. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted! But my wall is now plain and sad and needs something! After a bit of pinterest-ing I came across this super easy DIY by the amazing Vintage Revivals blog. I’m thinking of doing this with a white paint pen, but the black looks pretty cool too!

Stacked Plywood Bench | Vintage Revivals
I’ve finally gotten round to decorating my bedroom after putting my wallpaper up last year! I really want a bench for the end of my bed but all the ones I like are, of course, insanely expensive! I love the hairpin legs on this bench and the fact that it’s so easy to make. You will need a few power tools if you want to make this (well, it will make it a lot easier and quicker if you do!) like a power saw and power sander. If you don’t need a bench, you could make it wider and use it as a coffee table too.

Studded Chalk Paint Pumpkins | Cuckoo 4 Design
Is it too early to share pumpkin DIYs? Well I figure if they can start selling Christmas trees and ornaments in August then I can share Halloween DIYs in September! And these are some of the coolest pumpkins I’ve ever seen - that pink one in the middle is my favourite. And bonus - when your pumpkin is all sad and melty you can use the studs on another project!
