DIY Wreath

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!

Baby Girls Accessory Wall

29 Jun

I covered an old canvas that I had with some super cute fabric. I just simply used a hot glue gun to get the fabric to stick, so it was really easy and quick!

Then, one of my amaz girlfriends put together the white picture frames with ribbons for holding accessories as a gift at my baby shower!

And my final touch was two cute wall hooks from Land of Nod for her coats, hats, scarves, etc. For now, the hook will hold the Boppy pillow.

Mattress Money

Mattress Money

Do people still use the term ‘mattress money?’  Well, at our house, we do!  We started adding $50 a week to our money jar in January and will attempt to continue through the end of the year!  The budget will be squeezed after baby #2 comes around the end of June, but we will do our best to continue through December.  By the end of we should have $2,600 in our jar for a vacation!

You should try it too!

Fabric Covered Cork Board

7 Jan

I covered a cork board in some fabric for my mom for Christmas.  I used furniture nails to nail down the fabric and give it the upholstery nail look.  After I was done with the nails, I hot glued the fabric to the back of the board.  I think it turned out great and my mom loves it!  Such a quick cute gift idea!

Baby Proof Your House Prior to Baby’s Arrival

29 Sep

I know it sounds trivial, but once your baby becomes mobile, you are not going to want to race around from store to store getting stuff to baby proof. I suggest just doing it while you are in your pregnancy nesting mode so it’s just done when the time comes. Its just so much easier and then you are ready.

Land of Nod Bins

27 Sep

I am obsessed with bins! Seriously, I love them! Land of Nod has super durable, cute, inexpensive bins in every color and size that rock! Check them out in the pic above on the top row of my shelving unit in my son’s room. They look good and are a great way to organize!
