Doors are rarely something I see DIYs for - but the ones that I do see always make me think ‘I want to DIY all my doors!’. I love this whole room, but doesn’t the big gold stripes just elevate the entire thing (I love that kick board too). Check out Joy’s blog for more details and gorgeous inspiration!
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!
I always find great image & font sites from How About Orange, and was thrilled that she shared this one! The Dutch National Museum has digitized 125,000 works from it’s collection, and not only are they free for personal use, but you can put together collections of your favourites (i.e. ‘Baby Angel Statues’ or ‘Kick Ass Moustaches’) then download your favourites (for personal use only) You can have your own personal art collection in no time!

This DIY is specifically for my friend Anna who is getting married and trying to save costs by DIYing (which seems to be more and more popular these days!) We were talking about marquee lights and Anna mentioned how expensive they were to hire, so I told her I would find a DIY for her instead - and here it is. So amazing and
I know, I know, there’s only two months left of the year, but what really caught my eye with this DIY calendar was the pom pom decorations hanging off of it! It may be too late for a calendar, but you could still make this hanging with a pretty art print.
White & gold seems to be the combo du jour right now, and I love it! And it fits so many different decors. You’ll have fun searching through your house for the best ‘imprints’ though I have to say I love the swirly necklace imprint, perfect for all your trinkets and jewels.
Inspired by the art of Kristina Krogh, this lovely textured art is made from paper, glue and wood. Search the web for your textures (Whimseybox used a mix of glitter, marble and wood) and download the free template from Whimseybox to make your own work of art!
OK, so these ‘gilded’ coasters are incredibly easy to create (mainly because FPG purchased them as coasters already) but I still think they are worth sharing - they’re so pretty!
If you’re wanting to try out yarn bombing, why not start at home with this awesome DIY!? I would love something like this as decoration in my house. If you had a small and sturdy enough branch you could even use it to hang your keys!
I’ve unfortunately discovered that I need something a little more heavy-duty to keep my huge hardcover DIY & interiors books from falling about the place (farewell delicate bird bookends!) so I was excited to see that these ‘gold’ animal bookends are made with bricks. Nothing like a moose to keep watch over your tomes either!
I’m loving the super simple but chic pattern (created with Sharpies no less!) on these IKEA chairs. Great if your covers are less than pristine and you need a refresh!
I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again - the cleverness and ingenuity of people amazes me sometimes! I would never have looked at polymer clay and thought - heck I could wrap that around cutlery! But the effect is amazing, and such a good way of customising something I never would have thought you could customise! This is also a great tutorial on how to make those little flowers.
Can you guess what this faux agate is made from? Don’t look at my tags! OK, so you looked, it’s polymer clay! This is just so cool, and there are so many things you could make with these pretties (other than just as pretty decoration) Think earrings, coasters, pendants, even frame them for art!
Spray paint has a bad rep. Back in the day it was oily, toxic and only available in colours like black, brown, red and browny red. But as you can see, spray paint has changed with the times and comes in a myriad of colours, types and textures. Curbly has rounded up a fantastic set of projects using this overlooked product, in lots of different ways. Personally I adore those gold letters (formerly plastic blue, yellow & red!) and the gold/pink book ends. Click through for all the links!
For the same price of buying just one of these from Anthropologie, you can buy the items you need to make a few of these baskets at home! With Christmas coming up these would make a great gift filled with handmade bath bombs or biscuits. So cute!
