This whimsical creature will be sure to bring a smile to trick-or-treaters–create your own with a few easy steps.
We moved into our new office about 6 months ago, and sadly it took me awhile to find a way to display cute pictures of my mini. The problem was finding something that would add a little color, and match the reclaimed wood, ruggedness of the rest of the office. Thankfully I finally came up with a solution.
ps. Instructions for cute little not included.
CreateForLess recently moved our corporate office, and while moving is never fun, decorating a new space is. Right away, I noticed that there was no place for our incoming & outgoing mail and I knew a Mail Box Tray would need to be crafted soon. I love how this Button Lined Mail Tray turned out, and I hope that you enjoy it too.
A few weeks ago, my mom called me with a wedding present idea for a wine loving cousin that is getting married this fall…a Wine Cork Bath Mat. She asked for help making it, and as any good daughter would do, I took over and decided to make it for her. This bath mat is a little time consuming, I mean you do have to drink a lot of wine to get the corks, but so much fun.
PS. You can buy used wine corks online so you don’t really have to drink all that wine, or just use new cork stoppers.
PPS. If you know said cousin getting married, please don’t tell.
I am a big fan of minimalist design and straight lines. I cannot say if this is a nature or nurture as recently this type of decoration is everywhere. This fact can be seen in the recent craft trend of geometric design. Whether it’s furniture, art, or accessories, a minimalist design dependent mostly on straight lines and shapes can be seen far and wide. I am a fan of this and here are some projects I found that could help me share my enthusiasm.
Gold Geometric Coasters – Think Crafts
These coasters are easy to whip up and come with so many possibilities. All of these deigns were drawn by hand, but it would be easy to use tape to get a more exact design.
In college, my first apartment’s refrigerator was adorned with a whiteboard in the shape of a speech bubble. I would rip pictures of various teen stars out of magazines and my roommates and I would use the speech bubble to comment on the ridiculousness of the photo or write silly notes to each other.
Since it’s Throwback Thursday and I’m getting all nostalgic, I thought I would share a similar DIY version of this idea that’s a little more chic, but just as much fun.
