I love hosting events, but one area that I really could use a little more effort on is decorating. With a birthday party coming up I came up with this idea for a sandwich board. I love all the chalk board stuff floating around the internet and wanted a way for me to bring that into my home. Find my Pinterest love of chalk boards here. Read more
I needed a spring wreath, so I wandered through my local craft store to get a wreath base and oh my oh my are they expensive. I went immediately to Dollarama to buy a pool noodle. I’d seen this on Pinterest before, how hard can it be? Read more
This DIY is a re-do of a previous DIY I did last summer – find that here. The old home of the frame got a facelift, which means this guy had to find a new home in a new room with a new colour theme. I used paint that we had leftover from doing a small accent wall in our main floor bathroom so it literally cost me nothing. Read more
I’ve been planning on doing this for a year and it’s finally done, and doesn’t it look amazing! The hardest part was collecting frames. I didn’t want to spend $200 on a gallery wall (which could have easily happened when you’re spending $10 on each frame). Here is how I built my Wall o’ Fame for about $40 dollars Canadian.
This summer while I was learning how to use my Kreg Jig I made several frames out of some scrap pallets that were lying around. I knew I wanted to DIY some wall art. I originally wanted to put the starfish inside the frame but my centre hole was too small (poor planning on my part). However, I really like how they turned out! Find my Kreg Jig Tutorial here.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – everywhere I go. Especially at my house, this weekend all my Christmas décor will go up! Starting with my latest DIY.
I was inspired by a DIY I found on Pinterest over a year ago, click here to see it. Personally I like mine better. I spent $40 on the materials and I have lots of leftover ribbon and burlap to use throughout the season and on other DIYs. After I finished it I found a similar style wreath at Homesense, and it was about $50. So I think I did ok.
