DIY Tassel Garland

While browsing online for baby shower/nursery decor I was seeing these cute tassel garlands everywhere. It was definitely on my to-do list to purchase one.

Via Confetti System

Then I found this super easy tassel garland tutorial on Pinterest by Linen & Lace & thought I’d give it a try. I literally spent $5 on materials! Much better than the $30-$40 + shipping off Etsy.

So while the hubs went out with friends on Saturday night, I dove into crafting mode

I chose four different colors of tissue paper – gold, hot pink, light pink & shimmery white

Because I decided to hang this on baby girl’s crib, you are getting a little sneak peak of her nursery!

I love how the garland brings texture & fun girly glamour to her crib & nursery
.. I think she will love it. Obviously I won’t be able to leave it there when she gets older but for now it works.

What do you think? I’m basically addicted. I’ll probably make one for xmas & other holidays too. These are great for any kind of party too! Baby & bridal showers, birthdays, holiday parties or just cute decor in your home.

BTW, yes I’ll be doing a post on the DIY black & white painted stripe wall in the nursery. I’ve got all the tips on how to make perfect stripes with no bleed through!

Here’s my latest pregger shot at 23 weeks

Washi Tape Corkboard DIY

I found this awesome idea for a corkboard on Pinterest. This was so easy, I literally made this in 20 mins!

{Supplies used}

* 4 pack of 12″ corkboard tiles – found at Michaels

* Japanese Washi tape in your fav color. 15mm size – found on Etsy or here

* 1.5 inch Masking tape (I used frog tape since that’s all we had)

* Scissors

I taped the first piece diagonal across the corkboard  leaving about 1/2 inch on either side to tape to the back

Then I took the frog tape and used it to spacer for the rest of the pink washi tape

Repeat on the other 3 corkboards..

You can do this design or.. switch the tiles around and make this design

and you’re done! Now just stick the tiles to the wall with the adhesive squares provided.

Pretty cute huh?

DIY: A True Love Story Never Ends Print {PERFECT Valentine’s Gift}

 Since doing the Love Wall in our living room I kept feeling like there was something missing.

I had seen this on Pinterest awhile ago & loved it

So I started browsing Etsy for this print. I found one I wanted for $60 + $20 shipping eekks

then I thought why don’t I just make my own print?! I did a goggle image search for “fuchsia” (since that’s the color I wanted the background to be) then I busted out Picnik, decided on a font I liked – I chose FF Oxide Stencil font

And there you have it! I spray painted the antique love story frame that was used in our wedding + the large frame in the middle. I used Glossy White Rust-oleum spray paint. I was so over the dark color wood. What do you think? Better right?

This would make THE cutest Valentine’s Day gift, not to mention it’s quick & easy and costs practically no money to make!

 I really think the white brightens up the wall + I’m loving the fuchsia love print!

To remind you, here’s what the wall looked like Pre – Benjamin Moore Bird’s Egg paint:

Do you have any cute Valentine’s gift ideas? Do share!

Hope you all have a Happy Valentine’s Day!!
