Felt Pumpkin Chair Backer

As shared on Infarrantly Creative, I created custom chair backers for my kiddos last year and started a new tradition where they get a special note or treat inside the pouch each day. I mean kids don’t get enough treats at Halloween, right {wink}? Ha! The real point for me though is just witnessing the excitement even one little Hershey kiss can bring. It makes my heart smile, and I cannot wait to continue the tradition this October!

We all have our own rules when it comes to holiday decorating. You may have pulled out your Halloween décor weeks ago or wait until the big day to deck out your house with pumpkins and spider webs. In my home, September 15th is the magic date, and that just so happens to be today! […Read More]

Dress Up Your Table with Painted Pattern Napkins

Sarah of Sarah Hearts has a thing for cloth napkins. Not only are they a great way to dress up your table, but they are machine washable and reusable. What’s not to love? Sarah was inspired to jazz up a set of plain cotton napkins with a simple pattern using just some craft paint and a brush. Talk about easy! Sarah writes, “Instant Anthro style for only $5! Now that’s definitely a win!”

Burlap Magnolia Blooms for Fall

With the arrival of each new season, Gail from Purple Hues and Me says she loves to visit Pier 1 for inspiration. On a recent trip she saw some pretty handcrafted branches of burlap magnolia stems and was inspired to recreate these lovelies. Gail hit up her fabric stash for leftover burlap and formed it into realistic looking blooms with the help of Mod Podge and floral wire. I love the natural look and texture of burlap for fall!

Sophisticated Sea Fan Art for the Beach Lover

Here’s another project from imeeshu to help you achieve that high end look for less. Meesh says, “Why pay $400 for a framed sea fan when you can make it for $10?” That’s exactly what Meesh did with some consignment store frames and beautiful sea fans that she ordered online. Throw in some hot glue magic and presto – sophisticated beach-inspired art on a dime!

No-Sew Colorful Tassel Pillow

Jennifer of Brave New Home stumbled across a colorfully-tasseled pillow from Anthropologie that brought her online browsing to halt. She says it had “a unique combination of fun, whimsy, and worldly charm” – everything she loves about Anthropologie! Jennifer just so happened to have a plain white pillow cover from IKEA that she’d picked up for just such an occasion. She got her tassel-making on and then adorned the pillow with all her colorful creations.

One-of-a-Kind Octagon Dining Room Table

Cassandra from The Life of CK and Nate was over her scratch-and-dent, impossible to keep clean, and downright embarrassing dining room table. She went on a hunt for a new round table and came up with a couple of fabulous options from Restoration Hardware. Of course, that’s fabulous as in fabulous inspiration. Cassandra and her husband borrowed aspects from those lovely tables to design their own totally unique table complete with an octagon tabletop and six angled legs.

Decorative Mirror from Toilet Paper Rolls

Meghan from Happiness Is… Creating finally decided to jump on board the toilet paper roll art train. While it may be hard to consider toilet paper rolls an art form, the pliable cardboard proved to be the perfect material for recreating the petal-like look of a mirror Meghan loved. The carefully arranged cardboard pieces have an amazingly similar effect to the wrought iron of Meghan’s inspiration, and her mirror only cost fifteen bucks instead of one hundred and fifty!
