‘Give Thanks’ Thanksgiving Paper Garland

give thanks garland

Shirley from These Moments of Mine was kicking back with her PB Kids catalog with no intention of creating anything one night. However, after spying a a cute little Christmas garland, her creative juices got flowing and had another idea. Shirley got to work creating her own harvest version of the garland using craft paper, her Silhouette, and distressing ink. Her spur-of-the-moment project is a beautiful reminder to be thankful!

Gold Leaf Metal Desk with Awesome Style

Ashley from The Handmade Home needed a desk for her family’s studio that “fit nicely, stayed organized, held a ton of stuff and had awesome style.” She found an iron and glass desk from Pottery Barn that met some of her requirements but still fell short. Ashley took matters into her own hands (and those of a welder friend) to create a larger, more modern, GOLD desk that definitely has the awesome style she craved!

Antiqued Christmas Mirror with Text

With Halloween officially behind us, it’s time to bring on the Christmas projects. I mean if Big Lots and Kmart can show Christmas commercials, we can definitely get our Christmas craft on, right? Speaking of Christmas projects, my dear friend Jen from Tatertots & Jello has already created a couple of amazing ones! I am just loving this mirror she made for the holidays by distressing it and then adding some vinyl. I’d take it hands-down over her Pottery Barn inspiration, and it was less than one-third the cost.

Junk Metal Pulley Lamp

There is no question that Donna of Funky Junk Interiors lives up to her blog’s name. She has an amazing knack for taking legitimate junk and making it funky and fun and just plain awesome! With the help of an artist/welding friend, Donna created this crazy cool, functioning lamp out of a collection of metal odds and ends. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a lamp with more character. Donna says it’s perfect for her “junk inspired home!”

Rustic Wood Console Table

Katie from Addicted to DIY had been wanting a console table to fill a “dull, empty space” by her front door, but her husband wasn’t game on spending a $1,000 for one. Katie came up with the brilliant plan that they save their hard earned cash and build a table instead of buy one. With the help of Ana White, the couple completed their very first build together and have a lovely new console table to show for it!

Pottery Barn Inspired Desk Makeover

Lisa from The Salt Marsh Cottage needed a work table for her projects and was happy to find the perfect one. Woohoo! Unfortunately, the $999 price tag wasn’t anywhere near what she could afford. Boohoo! Lisa instead decided to rework an outdated desk she had been trying to sell on Craigslist. With some leftover paint, Danish Oil stain, and new hardware, she was able to get the look she wanted for a total investment of less than $20.

Wood Framed Flatware Kitchen Art

Nick from Lifestyles of the Rich and the Davis’ was happy to oblige when his wife requested a trio of flatware canvases for their dining area. With the help of Photoshop, Nick created his own stencils and painted the spoon, knife, on fork onto the canvases. Now, many would of stopped there, but Nick wasn’t done yet! He then turned the “disjointed set of silverware” into a statement piece by building a wood frame. I love how it brings the whole piece together!

Oversized Vintage Flashcard Art

Our playroom is the first thing guests see as soon as they walk into our home. In an effort to spruce things up a bit, I have been giving the space a little TLC and making some changes, including knock-off wall art. Yesterday on Infarrantly Creative, I shared how I created these larger-than-life vintage flashcards. I love the clean look as well as the fact that they are humongo and take up a good bit of wall space on the cheap. Woot woot!
