DIY Wreath

8 Dec

Wreath 2Wreath 1Wreath 4Wreath 3wreath 6Wreath 5wreath 7

 

I have decided that I want to get good at wreath making!

Here is my Christmas wreath for our front door.

My mom picked me up a blank foam wreath from Michaels, as you can see in the first couple pictures above.  Then I just picked up several tubes of balls in different sizes from the Target $1 section and then hot glued the balls to the wreath.  I took off the tops of the balls where the hook attaches, put glue on the top of the ball tits and shuved them into the foam wreath.  Works like a charm!  Hubs got me a bling bling wreath hook for the door too!

I LOVE Christmas!

Quick Cute Fall Decoration

Moss

 

Rocks

 

Ross Moss final

 

I wanted a cute quick fall decoration and here it is!  My husband was out mushroom picking and found me some bright green moss and white-ish rocks.  I washed up the rocks, and tossed the moss on top!  Perfect for fall!  I might just put it on the table for Thanksgiving?

Happy Fall!

Aren’t these skeletons amazing?!  I wish that I could take credit for them, however, my mom is the creator!  She made these out of old milk jugs!  My little skeleton family!  My husband, son and I!  So cute!  Notice all of the detail…. painted nails, earrings, a tie, a Halloween sack, etc.  She did an amazing job and we love them!  Thanks Mom!  We love you!

Ball Jar Herb Garden

Kerr Jar Herb 3

 

I was brainstorming ways to grow herbs for my husband, whom is a chef, and yes, I am spoiled I know, and I came up with this idea.  We drilled holes in the bottom of a Ball jar that we had in the cupboard, added some white rocks that we collected on the beach near our home, then dirt, then the thyme!  Boom!  Cute planter for herbs.  I am super pumped to be growing herbs verse paying $5+ for a package that we use half of and throw out.  Super wasteful!  Plus, its cute and sits in our glass window off the kitchen which is perfect for growing!  I plan on doing several of these!  Parsley is next!

Happy growing!

Paint Your Garden Rocks!

7 Nov

Painted on some rocks and threw them in a planter next to my fall/winter cabbage!  Super fun to think of random words you can paint on the rocks.  I think I may add a few racy words on the next batch for my rose garden.
