DIY Modern Wreath

I made this wreath using only a few simple supplies and it looks great hanging on the wall. The gold ring is by Darice from Joann's - they had a range of sizes and mine is about 8" in diameter. The faux berry sprays are also from Joann's. They have a large range of holiday florals, so this wreath could really reflect your own style - just look for what works for you.

DIY Bar Cart

Here's an easy DIY project I created for Fiskars recently - a DIY bar cart - perfect for parties and entertaining over the holidays. I used a white 6 cube storage unit as the base and added wooden planks to the top and bottom. Wheels make it perfect for moving from room to room, or even to the backyard if you're somewhere warm like I happen to be.

DIY Mason jar lid ornaments

Here's a quick DIY project I wrote for Create and Craft recently - mason jar lid ornaments. I have plenty of lids lying around in drawers and boxes, leftover from other craft projects, and I decided to put them to good use by turning them into tree ornaments.

DIY Candle holders

 I'm busy getting our home ready for Christmas and I'm sure you are too. I love adding little festive touches here are there and I feel that a few sparkly baubles and twinkly lights go a long way in creating a warm and cosy atmosphere. I made these wooden tea light holders for our dining table from birch logs and used a few Fiskars garden tools to help me with the task of lopping and pruning branches.

Handstitched festive banner

Stopping by today to share a tutorial I created for Spoonflower, and this is a project I love! I just KNOW I'm going to be making more banners for other holidays and occasions, using this method. I used picmonkey's free software to create the design for this and then Spoonflower printed it on to fabric for me.

Tulle skirt DIY

It's really quite simple to get into making your own clothes - even things you'd actually want to wear for special occasions. Here's a tutorial for a tulle holiday skirt I wrote for Fiskars. Tulle can be a little tricky to work with, especially if you're a beginner. My tip is to mist the tulle lightly with water from a spray bottle.
