Easy Fabric Hexagon Coasters

Fabric Coaster tutorial with a free template!

My husband is a card carrying member of the coaster police, which is fine… if you don’t only have stone coasters, a glass coffee table… and a 1 year old. Over the past few weeks there has been a lot of me moving the coasters out of her reach, and the C.P. (Coaster Police) putting them back only to have to stop the 1 year old from banging them on the coffee table. Something had to change, the easy solution fabric coasters!

These coasters are so quick and easy, a whole set could probably be made from start to finish in about an hour.

Cozy Crafts for Rainy Days

It’s April Showers season, and that’s never truer than here in Portland. Whenever it’s rainy outside, I want nothing more than to make something warm and cozy to enjoy on the next rainy day. I’m an avid knitter, and there is something so relaxing to me about sitting under a blanket with some wool yarn in my hand and knitting up a sweater while I daydream about wearing it during a future rainy day.

If you love crafting during a rainy day as much as I do, let us know what you love to make and enter to win a $100 CreateForLess Shopping Spree at our April Showers Drawing!

Insulated Cup Cozy

Insulated Mug Cozy

Keep that tea you love to sip during a rainy day warm with a mug cozy that has insulated batting on the inside. This is a quick craft that makes a great gift. It’s perfect if you’re like me and always forget about your warm drink until it’s cold.

Hand Painted Sprout Planters

By Home Decor Contributor Alyssa

Get excited about living a healthy lifestyle with pretty hand painted planters to hold cress sprouts!

I committed recently to a healthier lifestyle. My norm used to be weekly runs to Taco Time, frequent binge watching of Netflix shows, the occasional walk on my lunch break to get out of the office, but not much else in the way of exercise. After realizing that while this lifestyle was easy, it was not making me feel very good about myself, something clicked in my brain and I became very determined to change. Enter the fun new healthy recipes, weird apartment-sized exercise equipment, and desperate attempt to make this drastic change a bit more convenient for myself. Although these little planters are just a small step in the right direction, they’re fun and they inspire me to make good choices every time I see them.

DIY Door Latch Covers

Finished on door

My husband tells me I tend to shut doors loudly, or at least that is what he claims when I get up before him. I don’t believe I shut them any louder than he does, but just in case, I wanted to make sure that our baby won’t wake up as soon as someone shuts the nursery door, or really any door upstairs. These cute DIY Door Latch Covers are thin enough that the door still shuts, but the stop the door latch from clicking. These sleep savers are quick and easy to put together.
