Halloween Bird Cage Vignette

Sharon of The Blue Willow House was inspired to turn a bird cage she had picked up from the thrift store into an eerie Halloween display for her foyer. It just so happened that Sharon had all her materials on hand. Worn books, black gauze, crows, and a few pumpkins and gourds come together for a spooky effect. It’s crazy how similar Sharon’s bird cage looks to her Pottery Barn inspiration!

Burlap Owl Swag Wreath

When Gail from Purple Hues and Me saw a swag wreath with a small handcrafted owl in perched in the middle, she couldn’t help but wonder why the adorable owl wasn’t larger and more emphasized than the twigs.  Sounds like the perfect excuse for a DIY! Gail replicated the swag, making her owl large and in charge… and from a soap bottle no less! I am blown away by all the detail Gail put into her owl including the twine eyes and pinecone scale wings.

Carlee of Ladybird Ln had an awkward wall in her kitchen where a chimney had once been. She found a cute utensil hook rack that would be the perfect solution for the space, but it was too pricey and too small. Not a problem for Carlee, who was able to make an even larger hook rack with her own twist for a fraction of the cost. She says, “By finding a fun wrought iron decorative piece and thrift store utensils for mere pennies, I created a one-of-a-kind charming piece that is both functional and decorative. My aprons have never been so happy!”

Angie from Angie’s Roost had plans to make a pair of rosette-covered lampshades for the nightstands in her master bedroom. When a design challenge to recreate an item from Anthropologie came along, she kicked it into high gear and got her rosette making on. Angie first covered her inexpensive white shades with fabric so no white would be peeking through and then covered it with rosettes… lots and lots of rosettes. Angie doesn’t deny that this was a time-consuming process, but how pretty is her new shade???
