Puffy Pom-Pom Yarn Wreath

I love a good DIY wreath, and this puffy pom-pom wreath made by Tara from Between You and Me is totally swoon-worthy! The great news is that’s also totally doable for the crafter and non-crafter alike. I absolutely adore the peppermint stick ribbon and the fact that this is a Christmas wreath that doesn’t scream Christmas. With a quick ribbon change, it could take you all the way through winter!

Jamie from That’s My Letter and Ana White have joined forces to design and create building projects that would be make great gifts this holiday season. One of their gems is this mondo-sized clipboard easel. The clip is completely functional and the board is painted with chalkboard paint so kiddos can draw on it with chalk too! How awesome is that?!? My artistic daughter would go crazy over this!

‘Give Thanks’ Thanksgiving Paper 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 and White Christmas Sign

To go next to her stunning starburst mirror Christmas tree, Jen from Tatertots & Jello created a holiday sign that also reflects her gold, white, and grey color theme. Jen purchased a cheap shelf board for the sign and used her handy dandy Silhouette for the art. Believe me when I say the Silhouette makes sign-making a breeze. And, instead of $69, Jen made her sign for only $12!

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.

Fun and Festive Pom-Pom Table Runner

With the entertaining season upon us, it’s the perfect time to dress up your table with festive linens. Mary from At Home on the Bay shares a simple tutorial for creating a fun pom-pom table runner like one she saw at Anthropologie. Mary says, “It had colorful layers of pom-pom trim that added the perfect playful touch of whimsy to what was otherwise a plain white table runner. I new I could create a version that would be just as cute and more affordable for my budget.” And that’s exactly what she did! Isn’t it darling?!?

Make a Herringbone Mirror with Fabric

Jackie from Teal & Lime’s mind was whirling with ways to recreate a herringbone mirror with wood and bone inlay from West Elm – tile, paint, paper??? Then her husband stepped in and suggested fabric. Genius! Jackie already had a mirror with a wide flat frame that was perfect for the project. She covered the edges with veneer and the front with chevron fabric, and voila – a gorgeous and graphic mirror!
