I have a killer eye when it comes to shopping. Whenever I enter any store and I mean any store I will find the diamond in the rough. Case in point, this past weekend we were shopping at Five Below and I found a something worthy of Anthropologie. I’m not sure if FiveBelow is everywhere, but it’s basically filled with random items that are $5 or less. They have flipflops and t-shirts, toys, make-up, candy, books, party supplies, etc. A glorified dollar store. We went in to pick up some pool rafts since I heard they have cute donuts, pizza slices, and popsicles. I found tribal clutches and coin purses! The clutches were $5 and the coin purses were $1. They were cute as is, but I knew I could make them even better with a little tassel love!
My new go to gift has become coasters. It’s a great housewarming gift for a friend, neighbor, etc and it pairs perfectly with a bottle of wine! I last tested out my tile coaster skills with a DIY Polaroid coaster and now I’m going to show you how to make one covered in fabric.
As an interior designer I have lots of fabric floating around my house. I can never part with any little scrap so I have a lot of small pieces that really can’t be made into much of anything. That is until I realized I could use those pieces to make DIY fabric tile coasters.
This is a super easy gift idea for Christmas! It literally will take minutes to do and it’s adorable!
Here is what you’ll need to make your DIY pom pom ornament:
-Clear plastic ornaments
-Ribbon trim with pom pom
Step 1: Remove your ornament hook and add pom poms.
Step 2: Place back your ornament hook and use your paint pen to add whatever wording you like. I went with our last name.
Step 3: Add pom pom ribbon trim to make a loop for hanging.
Step 4: Enjoy on tree!
So simple to tackle and fun!
Both boys were under the weather this weekend. We stayed home and attempted to feel better from their cases of bronchitis. Not fun! So, no fun weekend photos this week.
Instead here is a round up of easy DIY gifts you can tackle easily before Christmas.
Here is great round up of some of my favorite projects!
Stay tuned tomorrow for another easy DIY project you can tackle in minutes.
My school renovation project was on a tight budget. We needed all new flooring and a new paint job. Once that was done a huge chunk of the budget was finished. Then we needed new tables and chairs and I was left with even less, which meant a couple of DIY projects to get the style we wanted at an affordable price point.
The new space is full of natural wood play items and fixtures and to keep in theme with the natural look we wanted reclaimed wood signage throughout the space.
Here is how you tackle it on your own! It was so simple and cheap!
