• DIY Christmas Project : Yarn Christmas Trees

    I was inspired to create these DIY Yarn Christmas trees because I love the look of these neutral bottle brushed trees from Hobby Lobby. I don’t have a store that close to me and it always seems like when I am near the Hobby Lobby closest to my house, or have some kid free time, it ends up being a Sunday. I was feeling a little impatient to decorate for Christmas so I decided to make my own! I couldn’t quite make an exact replica of the bottle brushed trees, but I could make something similar and that’s how I created these DIY Yarn Christmas trees! I thought I would…

If you are looking for a cute cubby shadow box like mine I found this cute one that is similar to mine! October came and I was inspired to do some Halloween decorating and here sat my cubby box…

Then I moved into the dining room and shared my steps on how to decorate a hutch for fall, and now I have designed a rustic neutral fall mantel for our dining room fireplace. I brought back my round brass mirror to be the main centerpiece for this fireplace. I bought…

    This Halloween mantel is a little bit spooky Halloween mixed with some vintage Halloween decor with a few elegant Halloween decor touches sprinkled in.

I love the way that this turned out! Maybe I will save my Vintage Fall-oween mantel idea…
