Red and White Rope Christmas Trees

Can you believe Christmas is only a week away?!? Do you still have shopping to finish, gifts to wrap, and cookies to bake? Let’s keep things simple today then, shall we? Sam from The Lovebugs Blog created these fun and whimsical Christmas trees with just some rope and hot glue. She says, “This might be the world’s easiest craft project.  It took about 15 minutes to pull these trees together and only required a few materials.  It was low cost and has a big impact.”

Upholstered Letter with Nailhead Trim

This morning I shared how Laura from Finding Home transformed a boring set of wire baskets into a stylish wood and metal organizer for her craft room. While working on that project, Laura also become captivated with an upholstered letter with nailhead trim from Ballard and couldn’t help but tackle another knock-off project! She grabbed a paper mache letter from the store, wrapped it with a suede-like material, and then added nailhead trim to the edge for a sophisticated, upscale look.

Industrial Wood and Metal Craft Room Storage

Laura from Finding Home knew she needed to find a storage solution for her ribbon hoard collection. She already had a wire basket organizer in her basement that was fully functional but lacking in the style department. That Laura could take care of! She scoured the internet for inspiration and came up with the perfect plan to transform her plain wire drawers into an industrial-looking wood and metal cabinet. Isn’t it amazing what a bit of paint and wood can do?!?

Wooden Wall Map for a Pirate-Loving Lad

Kristen from Down Home Inspiration created this wooden wall map for her pirate-loving son’s bedroom. Kristen had been on the lookout for a relatively easy and inexpensive décor, and this DIY wall art fit the bill to perfection. Kristen already had the plywood on hand and simply used a projector to outline the land. For a personal touch, Kristen included a bay with pirate history that she and her husband had just visited for their anniversary.

This kilim upholstered bench made by Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Co. is a match made in thrift store heaven! Lindsay, a kilim-loving gal, was in need of a bench for her mudroom. She headed straight to the thrift store where she found a wood and metal bench, a Navajo blanket, and a sleeping bag for batting. She combined the three items together to create this beauty!

Paper Mache Unicorn Head Wall Décor

I am just loving this paper mache unicorn head that Ashley from Lil Blue Boo created for her little one’s playroom. It is unique and fun and really makes a statement! Ashley walks you through the entire process, showing you how she formed the head from newspaper, paper towels, and book pages. I love the look of the black and white text with the hot pink plaque. Didn’t Ashley do an amazing job?!?

Gemstone Sharpie Wall Art

Lidy from Hello Lidy was inspired to create gem wall art for a corner of her room after spying some striking mirrors from West Elm. Lidy easily mimicked the look of the precious stones with a piece of foam board and a Sharpie. Here’s what Lidy says about her new DIY artwork: “I think it’s super fun and really modernizes that corner of the room. It’s really easy to remove from the wall and then reapply somewhere else if I get too tired of it! Thanks to West Elm, I have some lovely new wall art to look at!”
