Kilim Upholstered Thrift Store Bench

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?!?

Holly Berry Wreath Pillow

Brandi from Don’t Disturb This Groove loves making pillows and sure can’t up a festive holiday one! She created a holly berry pillow by embellishing a simple burlap cover with brown cording and felt. Those are materials that definitely won’t break the bank! Brandi says, “It was really easy to create and a great way to practice some basic sewing and crafting skills.”

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!”

DIY Beverage Cart for the Hostess

What does every hostess need to have in her entertaining arsenal? A beverage cart of course! Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic made one just in time for her holiday entertaining for only $150, and that includes the hardware.

Wintery Pom-Pom Yarn Wreath

Melaine from My Sweet Savannah had been wanting to make a puffy yarn wreath like one from Anthropologie for some time. After a fellow blogging buddy made one and showed just how easy it was, Melaine was motivated to get her pom-pom on and create her own. I just love how thick and soft this wintery wreath looks – so perfect for these coooold days!

Etched Glass Snowflake Candle Holder

Tara from Suburble shares at Crafts Unleashed how she gave some dollar store candle holders a wintery makeover with etching cream. For one of the holders, Tara created unique snowflake stencils for each side using her Silhouette Cameo. The other features a fun candy cane-esque diagonal stripe that was easily achieved with painter’s tape. Tara says, “ Wouldn’t these votive candle holders look so sweet wrapped up in cellophane and gifted to a hostess this holiday season? Or make a pair (or a trio…) and present them as a personalized gift!”
