Wall Canvas with Saying

Christa from Brown Sugar Toast has you covered if you want to create a personalized gift for that special someone this holiday season. Christa used puff paint to add a saying to a plain white canvas and turned it into a truly special and meaningful piece of art. The chances of finding a canvas with the exact words you want are slim to none, so this is a great way to get custom without the cost!

Branch Letter Ornament

It certainly hasn’t escaped the notice of Danie from [a few good things] that some of Anthropologie’s yummy eye candy is easily reproducible. In fact, she recreated one of their monogrammed ornaments using only two materials – sticks and yarn. While $8 may not seem too steep to actually purchase something from Anthropologie, I’ll take Danie’s free version any day! Especially since it looks like it could be right there in the catalog!

Chevron Kitchen Mat

When you think of a kitchen mat, I am sure fun is not a word that comes to your mind. However, Laura from Markham Street Designs shows that a kitchen mat can be full of life and personality! Laura took her old foam kitchen mat and painted it to resemble a zigzag mat she spotted in a magazine. Even dishes would be a little more fun standing on this mat {wink}!

Metallic Leaf Christmas Tree

While browsing the Pottery Barn catalog recently, Joy from Thrifty Parsonage Living came across their beautiful metallic bay leaf trees. Joy was drawn to the silver tree since she’s decorating with silver, blue, and a winter wonderland theme this year.  She was disappointed to find the trees were no longer available, but, in true DIY spirit, decided to make it herself. The shimmery tree cost Joy a whopping $2.50, which has to make her happy they were sold out in the first place!
