I love me some Pottery Barn. However, I don’t love the high prices on some of their items… Especially on some of the items that I might be able to make myself. Trish and Bonnie from Uncommon Designs saw a really cute “love” wall art in Pottery Barn’s catalog and decided to make one of […]

Quirky Christmas decor: a winter chair makeover with paint and epsom salt!
Back in October, I used scrapbook paper and paint to transform a boring thrift store chair into a spooky Halloween “Sit for a Spell” chair to use as part of my Halloween decor by our front porch. I decided to give the Halloween chair a winter holiday makeover and use it as part of […]
Let It Snow: DIY Glitter Christmas Sled
I love Christmas time and I love making our home a warm and welcoming place during the holidays. For a variety of reasons, I have not been as deep into Christmas decor as I normally would be, but I could not pass up the opportunity to make this DIY glitter Christmas sled. Every year I […]
Pottery Barn Inspired Painted Holly Pillow
I am not a very good artist. Fortunately, my friend Colleen at Just Paint It is not only a good artist, she is a great teacher. She did a great knock off of Pottery Barn’s Holly Leaf Drop Cloth Pillow. Click here to see her full tutorial. Happy crafting!
Make a decorative winter platter.
Today I’m going to show you a very realistic side of crafting, and how sometimes you discover new things while creating your biggest flops. I call it Problem Solving Creativity. It’s basically how you recover from a complete Craft Fail. Last year, Jen from Tatertots and Jello invited me to create a Christmas craft to […]
Pottery Barn inspired Bone Hand Skeleton Vase.
A few weeks ago I was in Pottery Barn, admiring their Halloween decor and decided that I could make something similar at home. I particularly liked this Bone Hand Vase, but did not want to pay $100 for it… so I decided to try and make my own version for a lot less. Here’s my […]
A blinged out Crow Pumpkin
Yesterday I shared the chic Crown Pumpkin that I made for my BFF. I also made her a second pumpkin and wanted to show you that one today. I love crows and ravens at Halloween time, so I made a blingy metallic pumpkin and added this fun black and green crow. (Because who doesn’t […]
A Halloween Weathervane.
I had the cutest little spring time weathervane. It was a running rabbit and I just loved it. You’re noticing the past tense? Had. Was. Loved. That poor guy had and accident and got broken. Since I am a pack-rat/potential project supply hoarder, I held on to the base of the weathervane… just in […]
Black paint + everyday objects = Halloween Decor.
One of the things that I think is so great about Halloween is that you can pretty much take any object, paint it black, and you have Insta-Decor. You know I super-duper love sticks and branches, especially around Halloween. I love them on my mantel, and this pumpkin and stick combo from a few years […]
