friday diy: home banner


happy halloween everyone! hope you have some fun plans tonight, i am so excited to take nixon out for his first "real" trick or treating experience. last year he was only 5 months old so he was pretty much asleep the whole night. he is going to be a monkey, makes the sound and all! so it's pretty dang cute. if you follow me on IG i might post a pic or two.

today i saw this super cute + pretty easy tutorial from the girls over at best on the block blog. if you haven't heard of them yet-- they share the cutest home ideas, fashion/makeup trends + some diy's as well. i loved this diy idea they posted on making a banner for your home.

i love how customizeable(is that a word?) it is + can find a place in virtually any spot in your home.
so cute right?

here are the supplies you will need:
felt, felt + more felt (this is used for the letters + the banner itself)
tacky glue
freezer paper

all images via best on the block

what would your banner say + where would you hang it?
check out the full tutorial from best on the block HERE

have a super fun + fun halloween weekend!! xo

friday diy: $5 ikat sheet curtains

happy friday babes!

today i found this awesome curtain diy from one of my favorite blogs i follow--- classy clutter!

if you have some plain white curtains lying around then you are set to go--- if not, don't go spend $30 buying white ones, buy a twin sheet from walmart + make 2 curtain panels out of it (tutorial also from classy clutter)

$5 is a lot better than finding some even from target that are going to be around $50-- plus you can totally customize the color scheme + pattern, although i love this ikat pattern!

here's what you'll need:
curtains (or a twin size flat sheet)
painters tape
latex paint in whatever color/s you wish

check out the full tutorial by mallory HERE

i love this so much! such a fun project + pretty dang easy,
what do you think? will you be making these any time soon?

have a fabulous weekend, xo

decorating for fall

happy monday babes!!

hope you all had a lovely weekend, it was seriously PERFECT weather this entire weekend-- we tried to spend every moment we could outside and it was fabulous.

today i am talking about decorating your home for fall. the good thing is that you can decorate now and it will last through thanksgiving[with a few minor changes specific to halloween or thanksgiving].

i found some beautiful fall spaces to give you some inspiration for your own home, i love the uniqueness of each space + how you can see it's not too hard to add in a little fall without changing your entire home!

what do you think? lots of inspiration, right!?
do you love your fall home space? email it to me, i would love to feature you!

here are the materials you will need:
foam brushes
3 plastic cups
3 colors of craft paint (in similar color family--she used martha stewart mint + greens)
large piece of print making or linen paper

friday diy: dream catcher...halloween edition

hey guys, happy FRIYAY!

i am so excited for a few days to relax and kick back. tonight i am watching a few of my nephews/niece's so we thought it might be fun to do a halloween craft.
i found this super cute idea, featured on tater tots and jello by holly(my sisters suitcase)
take a look
so cute right? so fun to put in the kids room or really anywhere in your home this halloween season.

here are the supplies you will need:

  • 12″ wooden embroidery hoop
  • black acrylic craft paint
  • spiderweb (from the dollar store)
  • various black trimmings
  • black craft feathers (optional)

  • i am a little worried about finding the spiderweb from the dollar store, because maybe mine doesn't have it but if it doesn't, i bet we could make our own web out of black sting/yarn-- although it would take a lot more time (so lets just hope all dollar stores carry the web ;))

    so cute!! click HERE to see the full tutorial.
    hope you have an awesome weekend, see you monday! xo

    wallpaper: frame it.

    happy thursdayyyyy!

    today i am talking about something most people probably don't think to do to wallpaper....frame it.

    i love this idea, because first of all wallpaper can be pretty pricey. meaning, needing enough to cover an entire wall or two can cost you hundreds of dollars. second-- i have a tendency to want to change things up ever so often and wallpaper seems a little permanent to me. if you put it in a frame you can always switch it out or take away to frame completely or whatever you want!

    here are some inspiration images for you-- what do you think? i love this idea!

    what do you think? is this something you would want to do somewhere in your home?
