DIY Jewelry Holder {from Cupcake Stand}

DIY Jewelry Holder

I’ve had this cupcake stand for a long time just sitting in my craft room. You might remember that I turned it into a Jewelry Holder when I shared the post Turning a Spare Room into an Organized Closet, but I had never actually finished the raw wood. Well, I finally got around to it. […]

Super Sparkly Holiday Table Runner {and easy Holiday Chandelier}

  Let’s start with a little video tour of my dining room so you can really see how this thing sparkles! (Ignore the sounds of my kids as background noise!) While I was working on this project, I took over our whole counter for 2 days.  My husband was more than a little scared of […]

DIY Glittery Cups

These Pinspired cups were so fun and easy (albeit a bit messy thanks to all the glitter)! Even my 4 year old helped make them. They make a great homemade gift too (I’m thinking my kids teachers would love these)!  Just pop a Starbucks gift card inside. As far as I can tell, the original […]

DIY Spider Web Vase

It was a windy, overcast, very “Fall-ish” day when I took the pics of this project yesterday and the historic style of our new home certainly adds to the spooky factor of Halloween!  It looks like a long list of supplies but a lot of them are things most of you crafters should have on-hand […]

D.I.Y. Personalized Nursery Wall Art

D.I.Y. Personalized Nursery Wall Art I started this Wall Art back when I was working on Quinn’s Nursery and just now got around to finishing it.  You’ll have to forgive some of the picture quality.  The kids got ahold of our good camera and it now needs replacing so my iPhone has to suffice in the […]

Alphabet Wall Art (Pottery Barn Inspired)

You might remember this House Rules Painting Upcycle I did a while back.  I was never totally happy with the finish that hand painting the black gave it and I always wished I’d used spray paint.  Well, problem solved.  I decided earlier this week I wanted to make the kids an alphabet themed piece of […]
