Should form follow function…? Function follow form…? Why not put them in the same bowl? It’s tangerine season, and we go through a 5 pound box of Cuties at least once a week around here. By adding the tangerines to a bowl of pine cones, I have a simple, everyday winter centerpiece and I […]
Easy ways to organize your Christmas decor and be ready for next year.
Packing up Christmas always makes me feel a little sad. (Also a little tired, there is a lot to pack up.) I have been asked how it is possible to change my color scheme every year… it’s all about color coding and organization, baby! It’s so simple, it’s kinda stupid. Store the decor by color. […]
Make easy Christmas garlands & wreaths without time, money or talent. Seriously.
Yesterday I shared how to hide everyday artwork by just covering it with fabric and adding a wreath. Today I’m almost embarrassed to show you this stupid-easy way to turn the fake, plastic greenery into something that looks totally real. For free. It’s fast, easy and literally anyone can do it. When it’s fake, you […]
I planted tomatoes but got Christmas trees instead. (DIY lighted trees.)
I shared this tutorial over at Tatertots & Jello last year and thought I would dust it off and post it over here, in case you missed it, or in case you have a memory like mine (which is non-existent these days…) We had several old tomato cages laying around in our side yard. (Me? Creative? […]
Make a sparkly epsom salt snowman.
Today let’s make an easy DIY snowman using a little glitter, epsom salt and some round spheres from STYROFOAM TM Brand Foam. I love, love, love Under The Table and Dreaming and am in awe of Stephanie Lynn’s projects. So when I was invited to make a project for her STYROFOAM TM Brand Foam series, I did a little happy dance. I’ve used […]
Make your own frosted, icy branches.
To buy decorative frosty or icy branches in the store can be very expensive. They’re actually quite easy to make on your own using epsom salt, glitter and glue. Check out this easy tutorial.
The Last Pumpkin of the Year. (Make a frosty pumpkin for your winter decor.)
I refuse to decorate for Christmas prior to December 1st and I usually have a small fortune invested in real pumpkins each fall season (so I don’t want to just toss them…yet.) Here’s an easy way to take your fall pumpkins into winter. Create frosty winter pumpkins while you wait for December.
Yes! I am dreaming of a White Christmas…. why do you ask?
I’m linking up today with a couple of Bloggy Christmas Home Tours. Love the time of year. LOVE!! I’ve mentioned 80 ba-zillion times that I have a new color scheme each year at Christmas. I am already dreaming about what I am going to do for 2011. (Being as I am so inspired by the […]
Do I make my own decorations? Of course I do!
I love my Christmas Artwork. It says “Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” (Handsome Hubby likes my artwork, but says the two wreaths look like a cat killed a bird on them….) I also bling-ed out my FREE chandy, which has now been at […]
Useless, but pretty.
Tis the season for Stuff We Don’t Need. What could be more useless than these….? But you know what? They’re pretty. I’d like ’em if I got them as a gift. You know what else? They’re cheap and easy. You’ll need a heavy duty adhesive (I like Goop), spray paint and glitter or other embellishments. […]
