Rope Rug

I was in need of a small rug. So, in true DIY’er fashion, I made one. I love the bold look of it. It’s almost hypnotizing! You don’t need much to make this rug. Just lots of hot glue, 100 feet of polypropylene rope, a piece of felt (for the underside of the rug), scissors, a marker and spray adhesive. For the ten thousandth time, please forgive my dirty glue gun! Years of use! To […]

Tomato Cage Foot Stool

I was looking at my Tomato Cage Marbleized Side Table the other day and trying to think of other ways to use tomato cages unconventionally. Before creating my side table, I created a Plant Stand using a tomato cage. It dawned on me that if I cut the cage down to the second rung, it would be the perfect height for a foot stool! I’ve always wanted to make a foot stool. I’m beyond pleased with how it turned […]

Dollar Store Faux Wood Vase/Centerpiece

If you’re in need of a centerpiece for an upcoming dinner party or event thats stylish, but doesn’t break the bank, this arrangement may be just the thing. It’s very easy to put together. Everything for this centerpiece can be purchased at Dollar Tree except the fresh flowers. In store, you’ll want to pick up a few glass cylinders (varying heights), faux wood contact paper, a bag of moss and various rocks. I grabbed the […]

Sunshine Banner

The other day while I was perusing the aisles at Dollar Tree, I came across these cheery sunshine cutouts in the teacher section. Unless you are a teacher, you most likely overlook this section, but it is filled with super cute cutouts that are perfect for banner making. Perhaps, I was drawn to them since there’s been a serious lack of sunshine here lately. I just love their big smiles. I swooped them up along […]

Dollar Store Succulent Ball

Did you know that Dollar Tree sells faux succulents? I made a wreath with them in the past that was gorgeous and really well received. So, I decided to use them again and make this succulent ball. I absolutely love how inexpensive and realistic looking they are! Honestly, I don’t think you could find more realistic looking succulents at a lower price! I  grabbed 2 metal hanging baskets, 2 coco fiber liners, 2 bags of floral […]

Chalkboard Window

When life gives you a discarded window, make a chalkboard. Makes perfect sense to me. This chalkboard was super easy to make. I had a lot of fun creating it and deciding what to write. My friends over at Plaid had sent me a few supplies for this project that were really great to work with. First, I cleaned the window pane and frame of my window. Then, I applied my first coat of FolkArt […]

Key Holder

My friend asked me to make him a key holder. He wanted something that would fit in the space between his counter and cabinets in his kitchen. We’re both so pleased with how it turned out! I had a pallet plaque leftover from my Marble Suncatcher project that was the perfect size for this project. Just like with my Marble Suncatcher, the first thing I did was haphazardly stain it using a dark wood stain. My friends […]

Starburst Mirror

If you’ve got a blank space on the wall and are on a tight budget, this Starburst Mirror project may be perfect for you. Although, its made out of popsicle sticks, I think its incredibly stylish. Plus, it can be customized to match any home. I really love the natural color of the wood, but it could also be stained a darker color or spray painted. Gold would be fantastic! For my project, I used […]

Candy Wrapper Cart

Save those Halloween candy wrappers! You’ll need them for this DIY cart. Luckily, I have a friend on the inside who scored me these Tootsie Roll Pop wrappers. This wheeled cart is perfect for Halloween, but with different styling can be used year round. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see the cart decked out this way. Ok, friends, I must admit this project is a little more complex and […]
