Poofy Wreath

daisi - December 10, 2012

You guys… I got crafty. It all started one night at my friend Jessica’s house. She was telling me about a pom pom wreath she saw at Anthropologie (a whopping $128!) and we decided to make one ourselves. Here is the inspiration wreath: We scheduled a trip to Hobby Lobby and purchased the poofiest yarn we could find, along with a wreath form, some floral pins and some …

The budget for decorations for our wedding wasn’t much, so I wanted to make as much as I could. Getting married in the pinterest-era makes it hard to narrow down which DIY projects to tackle and which to leave alone. But I definitely wanted to attempt some yarn-wrapped letters to spell “Love”. What you’ll need: yarn wood or paper mache letters hot glue gun At …

So after Christmas, once Santa was gone, my wall here felt a little, um, bare. Recently, I ventured to our flea market and picked up this cute little print. Which, if you’re wondering, I think would be really easy to make yourself. Just pick a book, take out a page, print a cute graphic and BAM a new piece of “art” for your walls. Anyway, I …

As I mentioned, one of my favorite things this year was a do-it-yourself sugar scrub. This stuff is a life-saver for your skin. It’s so moisturizing that you won’t even need lotion when you use it. The best part is, you can make it for a reasonable price for yourself and all of your friends. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. What you’ll need: …

As you know, I recently (it’s already been a month) got engaged! We spent one week enjoying our engagement without the stress of wedding planning. It was nice. Now we’re in the middle of booking, shopping, organizing, etc. I knew who would be in my wedding party immediately, but wanted to do something nice for them when I asked. I’ve seen lots of great ideas …

I would like to take this moment to apologize to anyone who follows me on pinterest. I am mildly addicted, which no one should apologize for… ever. I am apologizing for my eruption of recipe pins. I will understand completely if you want to unfollow my mmmmmm…. board as I have already reached 500+ recipes. Here’s the deal: I decided to consolidate every recipe I …

Project Update [crafts]

Remember back in March when I bought this picture frame with high hopes of turning it into a earring holder? Well… 4 months later it’s finally done! Seriously, it took me 4 months to staple wire mesh onto a frame. Wow. I’m really good at projects. Even though it took me WAY too long, I love the end results. I found earrings I had forgotten …

Even though it’s brutally cold (exaggeration?) outside, the weekend is looking good, so why not spring-i-fy your house? How about a DIY Potterybarn Letter for your front door? And you can never go wrong with eggs in nests. Or how about a spring activity, like planting a garden? I bought this adorable Easter egg wreath at Target in the dollar section for $2.50 – wait …

Today I went to the flea market with my friend Jess. I found a few goodies I thought I’d share. First was this cute little benchy thing… not sure where it’s going but it was too cute to pass up for $29. I will eventually change out the cushion, but for now I think I’ll leave it with the white one. Next, I found a little …
