I’ve been seeing a ton of wall hanging ideas lately that use yarn and other textiles. I love that they add texture and warmth to a room in an unexpected place. Here are some of my favorites that you can make yourself.
I love the texture, color, and geometry in this wall hanging. It’s a little time consuming, but it’s something you can pick up while watching TV and you’ll have a super cool art piece that you made yourself. You can customize the colors to fit your room.
We’ve got another baby joining the CreateForLess family, so I thought it was time to make another pair of baby booties. I’ve been on a charted colorwork kick lately with my own personal knitting projects, so I was instantly inspired by intricate Scandinavian sock patterns I’ve knit a couple of times.
I blame my boyfriend’s adorable mother for my new found obsession with bird feeders. This will be my first spring in our new apartment, which is in a very pretty tree-covered area. Apparently, birds live in trees. Who knew. Our last apartment was on the beach and five stories up, so although I had bird feeders, the feeders rarely saw any friends. Sad. Except for the time a HUGE crow decided to land on my super tiny suet feeder and lost balance and flapped around frantically, probably trying to steal the entire thing, and causing my cat to nearly poo himself. It was quite the scene. But now, since we are on the bottom floor and have a balcony above our patio, there’s prime real estate for bird feeder hanging. Many trees, lots of hooks. Enter hundreds of DIY bird feeder ideas that I am dying to try out.
I’m getting a jump on Easter crafting this year. Here are some of my favorite Easter crafts to share with the kids.
If you dread the mess of working with dyes and actual eggs but still want to involve the kids in making their own unique, beautiful eggs ,these candy and toy filled wool felted eggs are the perfect alternative.
I’ve been seeing a lot of gorgeous woven crafts out there. People are getting so creative with their creations, they look like art pieces that should be in a museum. I have yet to pick up weaving myself, but these woven projects might make be break down and get myself a loom.
I was basically in a constant state of euphoria during the holidays this year. The decorations, the music, the cocoa, the movies. It seems like everyone is in a better mood when the holidays are near. For me, it’s because of the opportunity to give meaningful things to the people I love. As I’ve mentioned before, my most prominent love language is gift-giving, so Christmas is like an IV of euphoria being pumped straight into my bloodstream.
