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...]

I am a big fan of a styled bar cart, as you may have noticed when I created this DIY Metallic Bar Cart, or … [Read more...]

Mistletoe Embroidery Hoop Art

This post is being sponsored by Thermoweb. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I'm hosting our monthly supper club next week and decided on a festive Margaritas and Mistletoe themed celebration.  I've been busy planning and creating decorations, but realized one important thing was missing...mistletoe.  It turns out you can't actually buy real mistletoe in my area because it is a parasitic plant that can be harmful to trees.  So, I did what any creative hostess would do in a … [Read more...]

DIY Santa’s Cookies & Milk Placemat with Cricut

It's official I'm obsessed with all things Santa this holiday season!  It all started with my Letters to Santa themed Christmas tree, then it was a cute DIY "Santa Stop Here" sign on my Whimsical North Pole Christmas Mantle. Then we started baking cookies with our DIY Mrs. Claus Baking Kits and you can't forget about writing letters to Santa and putting them in our special DIY Letter to Santa Envelopes.  I thought we had this year's theme well covered, until I started thinking about … [Read more...]
