Fabric Flower | Flax & Twine
Fabric flowers have a myriad of uses - not only in your house but for yourself too! Add some ‘stems’ and pop in a vase, attach to a wreath for a pretty wall decoration or stitch on to a pillow to add some texture and colour. Or you can hot glue them to a hair clip or pin for a brooch, sew on to the neckline of a top or attach to a keychain! Though these are really simple to create, the fabric used here makes the flowers feel really special, so pop down to your local fabric store and choose fabircs that make you feel good!

Wood Gemstone Garland | Tell Love & Chocolate
Does your house need some bling? Then whip up this gemstone garland (in two different designs) and hang them where you need a bit of colour and fun. The ‘wood’ part of this design is balsa wood which is so soft that you can cut it with a Stanley knife. I love both designs butI have to say the one on the right is my favourite. You could even make the pattern in glue and add glitter to make a sparkly design!

Flower Letter | The Sassy Life
If I won the lottery, I would have fresh flowers every week. There’s something about flowers that make me happy - they brighten up my house, and add colour and life! But unfortunately, cut flowers are super expensive. But fake flowers are another story! These days fake flowers are quite passable for the real thing. Make a monogram for yourself or create a whole word with the faux thing - fun and fresh without the big cost.

Coffee Filter Garland | 31 Bits
I super love this garland! It’s soft, sweet and so easy to make. But it’s going to take a while to create something similar to the one pictured - 1000 filters! Wow. This would be gorgeous as a backdrop for a wedding, but I would love to hang this in my bedroom (but I’d make it in blues & greens). Time to get started on it now!

Giant Crepe Paper Peony | Carte Fini
If you’re looking for decorations for a wedding or party with big impact, you can’t go past this amazing giant crepe paper peony! The big petals are layered around a paper mache base. Yes, it would take a while to create this, but if you are making it for a wedding or party, you can keep it afterwards to decorate with!

Concrete Diamond | A Merry Mishap
I don’t know why people love diamonds so much. I’m terrified of wearing them, all I can think of is ‘OH MY GOD, PLEASE DON’T LET ME LOSE THESE’. But a concrete diamond? Now that I feel more comfortable with! Firstly, I can’t lose it, secondly, it’s going to be much cheaper, and thirdly I think it looks awesome and I can think of so many uses. Not just a decoration for the inside, but great to use as a paper weight or even to add some glam to your garden! The raw piece is earthy and modern, but you could easily paint this too.

Paper Dahlia | Lia Griffith
I just bought a book I’d been eyeing for a while on how to make paper flowers. Though I’m in love with all the different designs, it can be quite hard to follow some of the directions (and get some of the supplies!). Not so with Lia’s gorgeous paper flowers. Each flower has clear, step by step instructions, plus photos. And all her flowers come with free download patterns (some of them are also designed to be printed straight off with the pattern on there - bonus!). And there are lots of uses for something like this, including popping them on top of your Christmas gifts, or even attaching them to your Christmas tree - how pretty would that look!?

Glitter Feather Garland | Sarah Hearts
As y’all know, my tree is up and I’m full into the Christmas spirit. I was scouring Pintrest for ideas on how to decorate my mantle piece. This is perfect! Though these feathers were cut out using a Silhouette machine (I want one, Santa please pop one under my tree) I will cut mine out by hand. And even better, I can leave this up after Christmas is over!

Black & White Glam Pumpkin | A Pumpkin & A Princess
Halloween crafts have already started pouring in, and I’m on the bandwagon! I love the simplicity of this pumpkin - the main decoration is the hat, which you should be able to pick up from your local craft store (or if you can’t find a paper mache one, you could just go with a dress up one). The lettering is hand painted on, though you could go with stick on letters. Click through for the whole tutorial!

Copper Chemist Vase | The Merry Thought
I just finished reading the latest issue of Home Beautiful magazine which had a piece about decorating with vintage scientific items like microscopes and old posters of plants. This very sweet little vase would have fit right in with those pieces with the copper setting and test tubes. I love the simple arrangement on the left with the single rose and white flowers.

Plaster Milk Carton Houses | Paper N Stitch
Milk cartons are so easy to re-use. There are a myriad of uses, especially for crafters. I love the idea of little plaster houses adorning my bookshelf to hold everything in place and for decoration, and the trusty old milk carton is the way to go! This would be a really fun project to do with kids too - get everyone to decorate their own house!
