I will always reblog tassel/garland/bunting because I think they’re fun and such a cheap way to dress up a wall. This mini version is so sweet and would be perfect for smaller spaces that need a little bit of colour.
I’ll admit, this caught my eye because it’s an E. Yes, I love monogrammed stuff! Luckily you can get very cheap wood letters from the local $2 shop, so this is going to be a very cheap DIY!
This looks like a piece that you would find in one of those expensive boutiques where there are no price tags! But in reality, it’s one of the cheapest crafts you could make. I just love the texture and shine of the gold, I think I need this for my bedroom!
Hang Up The Garland!
There’s nothing sweeter to decorate a space than a garland. And there are so many great DIYs out there that there’s a style to suit any space. Here are three of my favourites:
Anything with glitter and feathers and I’m in! What I like about this is that afterwards if you’re keen on it, you could just remove the baubles and keep the decoration!
After cleaning up my craft cupboard I found one of these deer. I didn’t even realise I had one! I love faux taxidermy heads but they are so expensive that I’ve never bought one. But this is such a clever idea! And you can be sure to pick up a few of these deer super cheap at the Christmas sales.
For a while I’ve tried a few things to decorate the dark hallway in my house. It really needs a skylight! But anyway, everything there looks wrong. There’s lots of wall space but it’s very hard to decorate. As soon as I saw this though, I knew that it would be a great way to spruce it up! Not to mention it’s made from my favourite ‘metal’, copper. And hopefully some blooms down there will lighten the place up a bit!
DIY confession time: I may have re-blogged this mainly for the awesome cat in the picture. But the chrysanthemum is also awesome! It’s easy to make (though a little time consuming) and looks amazing as a feature above the dining table. Purr-fect!
edit: sorry about that pun
These are so cute, and so easy to make! I love the mix of barnyard animals but of course you could do any plastic animals - dinosaurs?! This is a great way to add a bit of fun into a more serious decor!
If you’re over the old plastic, gaudy Halloween decorations here’s a great roundup of very modern and classy ideas to create! I particularly love those bottle labels. Treat your guests to a glass of arsenic while they admire your veiled pumpkins, lace candles and spiderweb artwork!
I was at IKEA today and thinking of getting some fake flowers - $4 a pop! Giddy aunt. I’d much rather create some pretty faux anemones like this for a total of $4! These would be sweet for a Wedding - either as decoration (place holders, to decorate the aisles, etc) or if you’re wanting to do your Wedding on a budget you could make them for your bouquet or boutonnieres.
Here is an inspiring project that was in itself inspired by a new craft book that I can’t wait to get my hands on - You Are Awesome: 21 crafts To Make You Happy by Abbey Hendrickson. I’m not keen on blackbirds (er, bad experience!) but I would love to do this with those tiny little birds you get from the craft stores. A nice alternative to faux flowers!
This darling little bottle looks like something you’d pay through the nose for at Anthropologie, but it’s actually a relatively easy project you can make on the cheap! And those dots? Well all you need to create those is a hole punch and painters tape - I would never have thought of that but it gives you nice consistent dots across the bottle. Try different colours on different shapes and you’ll have a lovely collection to display.
I love the beach and I love collecting shells, but it’s hard to introduce these elements into your house without it looking like some weird beach hut. This black shell wreath is the perfect mix of beach and neutral, meaning it should mix into a lot of different home styles. Plus you get the fun of going to the beach and collecting shells!
I have another book review coming this Saturday and it’s by the awesome ladies from Hello Lucky! Here is a great DIY from the ladies that is meant to be for a wedding but is perfect for home too. If you’re planning to use these for your wedding, they can also double as gifts too - once you have it at home it’s a great little photo or art holder.
