DIY Teacher Appreciation Pennant Banner

Simple Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

Simple Easter Egg Decorating Ideas. Can I be honest? I super hate decorating Easter Eggs. The dye and glitter ends up everywhere, the store bought stickers never stick, the white crayon is a joke, and they never look pretty...and I won't even mention the idea of hiding real decorated eggs. That said, I have a huge supply of fake plastic eggs, but they look like everyone else's fake plastic Easter Eggs, until now! I decorated a dozen eggs with sweet little spring vinyl in about 10 minutes … [Read more...]

Lucky St. Patrick’s Day Mantel Decor

One of my favorite spots in our house is the giant shiplap wall in my living room.  It was one of the first major DIY home improvement projects my husband and I tackled when we bought our new house, and this 20 foot wall makes a big impact.  It's also one of my favorite places to decorate during the holidays.  I love being able to change out my holiday decor above the fireplace and brighten things up with simple and easy decor.  I recently teamed up with my friends at … [Read more...]
