Flower Petal Pillow for a Little Girl’s Room

Jann from Newton Custom Interiors has been busy making pillows for the double bed her granddaughter will soon be graduating to. She fell for a petal pillow that’s full of texture and knew the fun, girly style would be perfect for the bed. Jan lovingly cut out and stitched 160 little circles to make this pretty pillow for granddaughter and says it was definitely worth it. How sweet is that?!?

Stool Upholstered with Rug

Kim from Made in a Day scored quite the deal when she got an old stool for only $1.99. It might not have been much to look at, but Kim took care of that! She recovered the seat with a kitchen rug from Wal-mart to mimic the look of hand-woven, recycled fabric stools she had seen at both Pier 1 and Target. I love it when a rescue and knock-off come together!

Containers with Chalkboard Labels

Ashlee from Two Naps By Noon really liked the chalkboard feature of some jars she saw at Pier 1. However, Ashley wanted her labels to be removable so she could wash the jars. That’s where some chalkboard paper and a large paper punch came in handy. Ashlee simply cut out her desired shapes and then popped them onto some pantry containers. Of course, these are great for basic labeling, but I love the idea of using them to remember cooking times and instructions too! Brilliant!

You may remember the bunny ear napkin rings shared here on KOD a couple of weeks ago. Well, Trish from Uncommon Designs also couldn’t pass up on the adding some major cuteness to her table this Easter with a set of the napkin rings. Trish’s technique results in a seamless finish with bunny ears that are super sturdy and will not fray. Plus, she says they are easy to make and may not cost you a penny if you’ve got the materials on hand like she did!

As expressed in one of her favorite poems, dragonflies hold a special meaning to Gail from Purple Hues and Me. So she was delighted to hack a cute, glittery green caterpillar dragonfly that she saw at Pier 1. The Easter ornament was easily duplicated using basic craft items Gail had on hand. Don’t they look like little dragonfly twins {giggle}?

Morena over at Morena’s Corner went a little wild with her Christmas décor this year by creating a couple of fun animal print ornaments for her tree. Morena stenciled the safari design onto a glass ornament using glass paints to create this unique ornament. Morena says, “No elves, snow, or bright colors on this ornament.  Just elegantly painted glass in a pattern that’s very trendy right now.”
