Feather Ball Ornament

Mari of Crab+Fish almost bought these feathery ornaments from West Elm before she realized they couldn’t be that hard to replicate. With a few minutes of time and a Styrofoam ball, ric rac, and feathers, Mari did just that! She says, “ My version isn’t quite as fancy and flouncy and orderly as West Elm’s version…but I like my puffball version better!”

Mini Chair Wreaths

Emily from Life on the V Side created a set of miniature wreaths to bring a little Christmas spirit to her chairs. All she needed was grapevine wreaths, floral wire, and some eucalyptus, which Emily preferred over the look of Ballard’s boxwood. That’s the beauty of DIY… you get just what you want without the expense, and quite honestly, I think Emily’s looks much more natural than Ballard’s rather plastic-y boxwood.

Have you made a new wreath for the holidays yet? If not, here’s another from Rachael at House of Noise… I Mean Boys to kick you into full-on wreath-making mode {wink}!

Fabric and Ribbon Corkboards

Heather of Fake-It Frugal scored an awesome deal on some corkboards last summer, paying only 75 cents each! They were just your plain old basic corkboards… that is until Heather jazzed them up with fabric, ribbon and beaded trim. We can all use a little more organization in our lives, and it might as well be pretty to boot!

Sheet Music Candles

I love seeing items that have been written off as old or outdated brought back to life with a quick fix. Jennifer from Southern Inspirations did just that to a pair of brass candlesticks from her garage sale stash and white pillar candles. Jennifer spray painted the candlesticks for an oil rubbed bronze finish and […Read More]

Twine Storage Hangers

With loads of ribbon, twine, thread, and the like, Jami from Freckled Laundry is always on the lookout for creative ways to keep it all organized. She came upon a cute wall hanger that fits nicely through the center of the spool so each one is neat, visible, and easily accessible. These little hangers look […Read More]

Birdcage Pillow Cover

I can totally identify with Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict who just can’t seem to make enough pillows lately. They are such a quick and easy way to change up your décor for the seasons. Debbie had all the materials on hand to make this summery birdcage pillow. It only cost her $1.51 […Read More]

Paper Flag Banner

Heather from Crafting the Night Away was inspired by a pennant banner hanging in a Pottery Barn Kid’s store to make a replica for her daughter’s room. It only requires patterned paper and ribbon, so you could get away with a pretty low bill if you’ve got the supplies on hand. I love the little […Read More]
