Rope Bracelet

With Mother’s Day just over a week away, I’m kicking off a few days of fabulous Mother’s Day gift ideas – knock-off style, of course {wink}. First up, we have some pretty rope bracelets created by Kim from Made In A Day. I am in love with the chunky cording, bright colors, and little details that Kim included in all her bracelets. With summer right around the corner, you can’t go wrong with these for Mom!

Sharpie Art Plate Wall

Sarah from While They Snooze takes DIY wall art to a whole new level with this plate wall she created using dollar store plates and a Sharpie. This amazing project earned Sarah a well-deserved spot in the top 3 of the Creating with the Star’s knock-off round at East Coast Creative. The secret to Sarah’s beautiful artistry is in using a projector to trace the image onto the plates. With the handy tool, there is no limit to what you draw on your plates and still get stunning results!

Sweater Covered Lampshade

With the transition from winter to spring comes the task of packing away sweaters and pulling out tees and tanks. Before you write off those old sweaters, check out how Beth at Unskinny Boppy made over a plan white lampshade with a thrift store sweater. I love the idea of adding pattern and texture to a lampshade with a few simple cuts and some glue. It’s amazing the changes you can make it a mere 20 minutes!

Pipe and Wood Lamp

Janel from Nellie Bellie really blew me away with this unique lamp she created from pipes, wood spindles, and, of course, time and patience. Not only does it look amazingly like the inspiration, but the price difference is quite astounding ($86 versus $2,800). You can barely buy a lamp and shade from Target for the cost of Janel’s eye-catcher. Talk about making a statement!

“You Are My Sunshine” Pillow

The song “You Are My Sunshine” holds a special place in the heart of Brandi from Don’t Disturb This Groove. When her daughter was a baby, Brandi’s mother would rock her and sing the sweet lullaby. Brandi was inspired to preserve that special memory by stamping the lyrics onto a pillow for her daughter. I absolutely adore how the pillow came out and the meaning behind it!

Chrysanthemum Painted Vase

Anthropologie’s colorful flower vases have caught the eyes of many DIYers. I have seen vases embellished with jewelry to achieve the same look, but this is first time I’ve seen a paper flower that’s just as pretty as the inspiration! Melissa of The Happier Homemaker shows how simple it is to make the chrysanthemum with just some snipping and rolling. Attached to her painted dollar store vase, it’s the perfect focal point for spring!

Ombre Paint Stick Party Backdrop

Christine from Pure Joy Events has a passion for planning kids’ parties and finds Anthropologie’s window displays to be a great source of inspiration for her backdrops. I have been known to find creative uses for paint stirrers so it’s no wonder this ombre paint stick design caught my eye. Christine created her beachy backdrop by painting large paint stirrers and them simply sticking them on the wall with painter’s tape. How cute is this for a surf-themed birthday or pool party?

Ikat Stenciled Cabinet

I have said time and again how much I love the possibilities with stenciling, and Melissa from 5 Foot 12 Creations totally drives it home with her ikat console. I mean… wowzers! With a small paint brush and plate of craft paint in hand, Melissa completely transformed an IKEA console into a trendy piece of furniture that is sure to spark lots of conversations. It’s no wonder Melissa’s cabinet was one of the faves in the Creating with the Stars knockoff round!
