Simple Toy Box with Safety Lid

diy toy box

With the help of Ana White’s plans, Jaime from That’s My Letter built this simple, modern toy box with inset sides and a personalized lid. And let me just say this baby covers all the bases when it comes to safety with a child safe closure that holds its position and a cut-out in front so no little fingers get pinched!  The lumber and hardware cost less than half of the retail price, making this DIY version a beautiful and budget-friendly option.

Sew Your Own Kids Floor Cushions

After sharing Charlotte’s handmade pouf this morning, I wanted to give Susan from Living with Punks another moment in the spotlight. I featured the floor cushions she created for her wee ones almost three years ago when KOD was just a baby. Oh me oh my… her fabric choices simply blow the inspiration right out of the water!

Easy as 1, 2, 3 Numbers Floor Pouf

diy numbers pouf

Charlotte from Ciburbanity recently participated in a contest where she was challenged to create a sewing project using fabric from Waverly. Since she doesn’t consider herself a skilled seamstress, Charlotte knew a copycat project was the way to go and found an adorable numeric pouf for inspiration. She combined her lovely blue floral fabric with canvas drop cloth to put a fun twist on Land of Nod’s comfy math cushion.

Keep Toys Tidy with Cube Bookshelves

With a generously-sized closet and no need for a dresser, Hillary from The Friendly Home had plenty of space for furniture in her daughter’s bedroom. She already had a set of bookcases. Unfortunately, they happened to be “cheap, ugly, and “not very sturdy” bookcases that Hillary was more than eager to replace. She said goodbye to the laminate shelving and built a pair of solid wood cubby shelves following plans from Ana White. Hillary loves how the cube design keeps book standing up and allows for hidden storage so everything looks neat and tidy.

Hanging Snowflakes

Christa from Brown Sugar Toast found a way to enjoy a little winter snowfall despite the mild temperatures outside. She brought the snow inside by hanging these cute little snowflakes in her daughter’s bedroom. Christa was fortunate to find a pack of six snowflakes for only a dollar, and some white thread turned them into wintery mobiles.

Christmas Tree Pillow

Have I mentioned that I really like DIY pillows? Oh wait… only like a million times! So it’s no surprise that I was ohhing and ahhing over this adorable Christmas tree pillow made by Jamie from Three Scoops of Love. Not only it is pretty to look at, but Jamie added her own twist with removable “ornaments” so her kids can “trim the tree.” That special touch makes me love it all the more!

Dot Christmas Tree Skirt

Jen from Beauty in Bloom replicated the look of a dot and ric-rac tree skirt to create a colorful Christmas tree last year. She used her old tree skirt as a template to sew the new skirt and then glued on her ric-rac and dots to complete the look. I love this fun, unique design and the fact that Jen saved $50 by making it herself. With all the expenses that come with the holidays, that’s much-needed money in the bank!

Scalloped Felt Wreath

I simply adored the simplicity of a scalloped felt wreath from Land of Nod and knew it could be created for a fraction of the price since felt is such an inexpensive fabric. At Infarrantly Creative I walk you through the simple steps I took to die cut the felt and attach it to my foam wreath. The neutral colors make this a great wreath for any décor and season, but the pinecone-esque look makes it perfect for fall!
