Happy 4th everyone! I am so excited to be teaming up with some amazing bloggers who are going to share with you their Red, White & Blue July 4th inspirations. At the end of this post, make sure to click on and visit the other ladies. 

This time of year brings so many memories of being with family, food, fireworks and celebrating our freedom. I love the red, white and blue theme and today I am going to share with you my Pottery Barn inspired strip garland. What I love about knockoff's is you can take the idea and give your own interpretation. Here is my red, white and blue strip garland interpretation. 

The items you will need are burlap or wood scrap, red, white and blue multi-surface acrylic paint and paint brush. I used birch plywood for this project because I am placing it on the window above my front door. (post contains affiliate links)

Spring Wreath - Spring Fling Tour 2015



Welcome to our Spring Fling 2015 Tour! I know many of you are finally thrawing out from a long winter and you can enjoy Spring! So to start you on your way, I have the pleasure of teaming up with six amazing bloggers who are going to share some of their beautiful Spring projects. I know you are going to love them.

Make sure to stop by and see the other ladies creative ideas!






For this project you will need an 18' inch wire wreath form, floral wire, cutting tools, burlap and ribbon. To save time, go head and cut 24 pieces of floral wire that are about 10 inches long, there are 9 section on the wreath form and you will go around the form 3 times. Now gather your burlap and tie it to the inner ring (pic 2) then create a bubble with the burlap and tie it to the next section on the form (Pic 3). Continue to gather and create a bubble shape, till you go around the form one time (Pic 4).

For round two, gather and tie in the middle of the wreath form (pic 5) and continue to go all around. Once you are done with round two poof and position your burlap. Using the same technique gather, tie and poof your ribbon to hide any wires. 


Once completed I add daisies flowers (I love daisies they are sweet) and I made a bow. There you have it, Spring is a great time of year becuase it's not to hot or cold its just right. So enjoy your Spring and don't forget to stop by and visit the other ladies. Enjoy!

Kids Room Decor - Monogram Wall Art

Last week's post I shared how to create stencils using a glue gun and glue sticks and today I am going to show you the letter I created. This fun project I created to make a personal monogram wall art for my girl's room. Using PicMonkey I created the letter "G" using the font Emily's Candy and printed it off. I then placed a piece of parchment paper over the print and using my hot glue gun I traced the letter. Tracing the letter was very easy and the stencil turned out great. I have another great idea on how to reuse this letter as well. I placed the letters and some stars I created on the art work and spray painted the canvas in white and Voila! You have a fabulous monogram art work. 

Wall art

This piece turned out so sweet and I love the font I picked out.

The room is coming together and the reveal is next week. Can't wait to share. Enjoy your day!
