Jann from Newton Custom Interiors has been busy making pillows for the double bed her granddaughter will soon be graduating to. She fell for a petal pillow that’s full of texture and knew the fun, girly style would be perfect for the bed. Jan lovingly cut out and stitched 160 little circles to make this pretty pillow for granddaughter and says it was definitely worth it. How sweet is that?!?

When Charlene from My Frugal Adventures saw a large, eye catching glitter letter from Pottery Barn Kids, she knew it would thrill her glitter-loving daughter and be a fairly simple way to decorate the space above her dresser. Charlene loved that the finish was “delicate and pretty” and not too flashy. Equipped with Martha Stewart’s liquid gilding and a fine glitter, Charlene made her own letter that has “just the right amount of sparkle” for a mere $6!

With a new baby on the way, Camille from My Mommy Style has been busy planning her daughter’s big girl room. She was inspired to create her own colorful, beach house style wall art using retro wall paneling and paint. Thanks to the carefree style of the art and forgiving surface of the paneling, Camille was able to freehand the design for a pretty convincing knockoff.

While looking for affordable accessories for her master bedroom update, Steph from Building This Nest came across a colorful butterfly shadow box from IKEA. At $14.99, it was hardly expensive, but Steph knew it would be simple enough to recreate without a trip to the big blue store. Steph used an Xacto knife to cut out her butterflies, drizzled them with craft paint, and then popped them into a shadow box. I think this would make absolutely darling wall décor for a little girl’s room too!

Kelly got to work making her own pom poms out of yarn and then attached them to a white quilt she already had. Kelly says, “This project is so easy and no-sew! I’m so happy with how it turned out.”
