Pom Pom Creations | DIY Kids Activities

This year, my son Cole has become very interested in making pom poms. This past summer, we got my daughter Calla interested as well and we spent an entire afternoon at the cottage making some giant ones, but smaller pom poms are achievable in much less time. This is also a great activity for a rainy fall day.

Simple Macrame Plant Hanger

Macrame is back.  No, really. No. REALLY.  The word “macrame” brings to mind dusty, beaded rope-owls hanging on wood paneling, but like any good craft, it’s being re-invented. Modern wall-hangings, jewelery and plant hangers are popping up everywhere using macrame techniques. This plant hanger is a quick and easy entry-level macrame project anyone can whip up.

Letter Art | Get crafty with your walls

After I finished my wallpaper storage solution behind the door of my office, I moved on to the walls, which were a clean slate. I envisioned a collage of frames (to come on a later post), but I wanted to break it up with something more organic. I LOVE vintage lettering from old store signs but they are quite expensive. So I asked myself how I could do a DIY solution. This idea was inspired from the pom poms I made last spring with my kids. Super easy to do, you can customize the font and letter you want. Here, I have chosen to do the first letter in my company logo and I love the results. This would be fantastic for a kid’s room using their initials. Happy DIY’ing!
