After making a bunch of pom-poms for a photo shoot, Meredith from One Sheepish Girl certainly couldn’t let the colorful beauties go to waste sitting in plastic bags. She came up with a simple DIY to put them to use by hot gluing magnets and pushpins to the backs of the smaller poms. Meredith says she loves the color and texture they add to her inspiration board.

Christine from First Home… Love Life had long loved Anthropologie’s oversized zinc letters and kept having to talk herself out of ordering one. Deep down, Christine knew she could recreate it herself and finally got the push she needed from a fellow blogger to make it happen. Out came the tin foil, Mod Podge, and paint as Christine gave a cardboard craft store letter a faux metal makeover. Christine says, “I finally have my ‘zinc’ initial and didn’t have pay a small fortune for it. That make’s me one happy lady! YAY!”

Plate Collage Wall Art

After featuring Jessica from Mad in Crafts’ amazing globe pendant light this morning, I couldn’t help but share what else she’d been up as a part of her blue, yellow, and gray dining room makeover. Jessica wanted to make unique wall art for the space and did just that by creating a collage from plates and a poster. And just in case you’re not already sold, Jessica says, “This knock-off is super simple, costs very little to make, and requires only basic crafting skills to accomplish. Win-win-win!”

This morning I featured a DIY pintuck duvet cover, and tonight I am back with another sheet-to-duvet cover transformation that’s perfect for adding texture to your bed. Whitney from A Mommy’s Life with a Touch of Yellow was inspired by a quilt from Anthropologie as well as a drool-worthy knock-off by KoJo Designs to finally make her dream bedding a reality. Whitney made a few changes, including creating a duvet cover instead of a quilt to make washing a cinch. Even after several washings, Whitney says her sewing is holding strong!

Jacque of The DIY Village loves the cute assortment of kitchen towels sold at Anthropologie. She was inspired to transform a plain, inexpensive flour sack towel from Wal-mart into a pretty patterned towel of her own using a stamp and fabric paint. Jacque says, “It was so easy I’m kicking myself for not making one sooner!”

Draw Your Own Modern Circle Artwork

When Erica from Craftivity Designs fell in love with a $600 piece of artwork from Anthropologie, she decided to break out her pastels and recreate it. The steps are as simple as drawing circles and then adding dimension by blending the colors with your finger. I love that Erica got the bright colors and modern design she loved about the inspiration without having to spend a cent!

Trash-to-Treasure Painted Chalkboard Jars

Sarah of Sarah Hearts had been eyeing Anthropologie’s adorable chalkboard spice jars (amongst other things!) for quite some time. The sight of various glass jars in her recycling bin gave Sarah the push she needed to create her own “Antro-esque” jars using materials she had on hand. Sarah’s jars look remarkably like her inspiration, which is even more awesome since they started off as trash and cost her nothing to make!

Pretty Fabric Wrapped Letters

The trend of incorporating letters into décor is still going strong, and you can pretty much find decorative letters in any style imaginable. Lele from Just Showed Up made these pretty fabric letters by simply padding craft store letters with Fiberfill and then wrapping them with fabric. I love the possibilities here since there are so many gorgeous fabrics out there. How fun is Lele’s combination of colors and prints?
