DIY No Sew Cornice and Curtains
Being a part of the FloraCraft®Make it: Fun® team has been so fun and challenging. Every month we are given new products and a theme to create. This month, I have to admit, I was a bit stumped with my DIY.  I usually have an awesome idea (I think, anyway!) on what to make, but this month I was at a loss. I could never decide what I wanted to make, and then literally this morning, it hit me. I should make a monogram letter for my daughters new FROZEN vanity she received on her birthday. That wasn’t enough,  so

Monogrammed Framed Chalkboard
Hi PinkWhen readers! I’m Brandy and I write over at BD Design, a DIY craft and home decor blog. We are just a week away from Christmas and I have one last decorating idea for you to tackle before the big day.  I have a giant chalkboard (that terribly needs a fresh coat of white paint AND chalkboard paint) that hangs in our living room. You can usually find some sort of inspirational quote or holiday message on it. If you look closely, you can see the message my kids wrote my husband for his birthday a few weeks ago.

Framed Snowflake Ornament
Hello Everyone! It’s Dee from Meatloaf and Melodrama, and I’ve got a very simple snowflake craft to share with all of you today. It’s almost Christmas, but I’m still finding little areas around my home that could use just a bit more embellishment. Normally, I don’t use a lot of red in my home, but I just love using it during the holiday season and for a little while after. So, I made a framed snowflake that’s perfect for the holidays and can even stay around your home during the winter months. It would also make a cute gift! For

  Hi everyone! I’m Laura from Pet Scribbles, here to share another fun holiday craft with you: DIY Painted and Glittered Wooden Ornaments! Have you seen these beautiful unfinished wood ornaments at the craft store? I purchased mine at Michaels.   Their shapes remind me of old-fashioned Christmas ornaments in rich, jewel tones, made out of mercury glass or tin. Playing off the old-fashioned ornaments idea, I chose some jewel-like colors both for the paint and glitter, as well as for the tinsel I used to embellish each ornament. DIY Painted and Glittered Wooden Ornaments Here’s the paint colors I

Glitter Duct Tape Christmas Trees
A couple of months ago I was sent this awesome book called Duct Tape Mania from the fabulous crafter Amanda Formaro.  There are so many awesome crafts and ideas in this book, and I had the help of a couple of little boys to help me decide which craft we were going to tackle.  Not only that, but we were so inspired by the book that we even created our own craft, Duct Tape Christmas Trees. All of our kids love duct tape crafts, but the boys really had a great time deciding which one of the awesome crafts in
