Bird’s Nest Cupcakes

What better way to dress up your table for Easter than with décor that looks good enough to eat… and actually is! It wasn’t the pretty flower arrangements or sparkling glassware that caught the eye of Jennifer from Jennifer’s Mentionables as she browsed through Pottery Barn’s Easter catalog but their tasty bird’s nest cupcakes that double as dessert and décor. How sweet is this?!?

Ashlee’s no-sew technique involves inserting the tulle into the basket weave and then creating loops all the around the top. Talk about simple!

No-Sew Pom Pom Quilt

Kelly from The Lily Pad Cottage is loving herself some pom poms right now. So when she saw the adorable Crinkle Puff Quilts at PB Teen, Kelly had to have one for her daughter’s room and knew she could easily fashion one herself. Kelly got to work making her own pom poms out of yarn and then attached them to a white quilt she already had. Kelly says, “This project is so easy and no-sew! I’m so happy with how it turned out.”

Built-In Laundry Cabinet

When Tricia from The Little Cottage on the Pond moved into her new house, the small, empty laundry room was hardly an inviting space. A set of cabinets from Pottery Barn sparked her desire to create a room where she could actually be excited about doing laundry. (Hard to imagine, huh?) Tricia’s husband scaled down the plans for Pottery Barn’s cabinet and recreated their vintage style with inexpensive plywood. Don’t let the charming exterior deceive you… this cabinet is all business on the inside, providing tons of storage for cleaning supplies, mops, brooms, and even a vacuum!

Stenciled Burlap Lampshade

Traci from Beneath My Heart was flipping through her Pottery Barn Kids catalog when a burlap lampshade caught her eye. And… surprise! It wasn’t because it was exactly what she’d been looking for and knew she could make it for less. On the contrary, Traci had already created almost identical lampshades for her boys’ room three years prior! Pretty striking resemblance, eh? Traci can proudly say, “Pottery Barn copied me!” {Giggled}

Patterned Mercury Glass Vase

After her daughter’s wedding, Jeanie from Create and Babble found herself with several clear glass vases on hand. She decided it was time she jumped on the mercury glass train and grabbed her can of Looking Glass spray paint. Now we’ve all seen this done a time or two, but I love how Jeanie took it a step further by creating a pattern on the glass with glue. You’ll have to pop over to her site to see exactly how she did it!

Mini Wheelbarrow Centerpiece

I just love this fresh and fun spring centerpiece made by Jaime from That’s My Letter. She gathered up some wood scraps to create the rustic wheelbarrow and then filled it with homegrown wheat grass and marshmallow Peeps, which are just too stinkin’ cute! Jaime suggests also using the wheelbarrow to display plastic eggs, bread, wrapped silverware, etc… One little wheelbarrow… so many uses!

Rolling Wire Hamper

Bridgett from Osie Moats is not a fan of plastic laundry baskets since they usually end up broken after being used as stools by her boys. Ever since adding shelving to her bathroom, Bridgett knew she wanted a cottage-inspired laundry basket to fill the space below. However, she wasn’t about the drop a wad of cash on something that would be housing dirty, stinky clothes from three boys. Instead Bridgett gathered several items she already had to create a rustic laundry basket that fits her space to perfection – in both size and design!
