Last night the sun stayed out just long enough for Dash & I to get some Easter eggs done. I think I had more fun then he did since I am learning and very slowly accepting that I don’t think he likes arts & crafts as much as me. I’ve never really been HUGE into the whole dying egg thing but more of a painter. I also figured with a one year old, dying could get a little tricky so why not roll up our sleeves & bust out the finger paints.
hey guys! I’m about to be a repeat defender because today I am sharing a post that I had previously shared on my first blog I called Half Ass Chic Crafts. A ton of you are brand new followers but I have a select few that have supported me from day 1 so this might look familiar. Don’t let that stop you from reading though because I have updated this DIY with clearer, brighter photos, a much simpler HOW TO and 1 added step that will make your DIY garland look store bought. So let’s get started shall we?
When I first blogged this, Tassel garland was hot and fresh on the market. You would see it everywhere at every party, in every IG photo but it was sold only on Etsy and for crazy expensive. So I taught myself how to make my own! Fast forward 2 years and it’s not only everywhere but sold in like every store… Some go for more expensive than others ranging anywhere from $5-$10 making it no longer crazy expensive for paper garland. “So why should I DIY this then” you ask? Because DIYing is still cheaper and you can get more creative with it. More color/ design options for less the buck.
Happy Friday WITCHES !! I’m exactly 7 hours away from a tall glass of red and in light of the weekend and Halloween being frighteningly around the corner I decided I would share how I added a little “BOO” to my booze cart.
I was trolling on Instagram a few weeks back when I came across d.i.y.till_i_die‘s account. She has amazing halloween crafts so of course I had to follow. She posted a picture of a skull head with flowers and I knew I had to create my own version. So here ya have her. This was literally a five minute DIY and so easy to pull off.
My first Halloween in my apartment I was able to talk my mom into giving me some of the families Fall and Halloween décor and over the last few years I have been able to build on it with stuff I’ve found from the Goodwill. Nothing I own started out fancy… and this year as I was decorating I realized nothing I own really flows well with my shabby chic home.
I dug out these hideous spooky heads and although they are super cute they just weren’t pulling off the look I wanted to go for this year so like with everything; I busted out the metallic gold spray paint and gave them a makeover.
I am loving how they turned out!
