Metallic Tartan Glass

Two things I’m currently obsessed with: metallic anything and tartan. And spray paint! Plaid is a classic fall pattern, and it’s popping up everywhere lately; metallic-finishes, especially gold, are so on-trend. Why not add a touch of these two looks to your decor with this easy paint project?

Astrid Costume | How To Train Your Dragon

I love my daughter. When she commits to a Halloween costume she doesn’t change her mind. So as I was putting the finishing touches on her costume last year she informed me she wanted to be Astrid for this year. So I had a whole year to mull it over and plan. But of course who needs a year, when you can get it done in one long weekend right?

Paper Holiday Wreath

I love decorating for  holidays, but one thing we haven’t had in a while was a Christmas wreath. We used to buy fresh greenery to hang on our door, but I decided this year I’d try something more lasting by crafting my own. I love working with paper, and since our style of door is tricky to hang anything on, something delicate would work just inside our entryway.  Feel free to play with colour and texture: a mix of red and cream poinsettias with green leaves would be lovely, and I used a paper with a slight texture on one side. An all white version like this could even stay up all year.  Despite its availability and relatively low cost, paper can seem like an intimidating medium, but if you choose a sturdy heavier stock like I did, it’s pretty durable and easier to keep for future use.

Festive Wooden Garland

I was recently inspired to make my own wooden garland (which means, I saw one in a store and thought to myself “hey, I can just make that”). I enlisted the help of my super-handy sister and her saw and drills. A few hours later we both had festive garlands to add to our holiday decor. This would also make a great gift!
