DIY beaded wreath tutorial

Happy Wednesday friends! By popular vote from my Instagram stories last week I’m bringing you my DIY beaded wreath tutorial to brighten your day. (If you don’t follow along on Instagram, follow me here!)

This DIY was incredibly easy and super cute for spring! So grab a glass of wine or a mug of your favorite hot beverage and have some fun crafting! I’m showing you how you can make one of your own and where to get all the supplies!

Supplies:

DIY beaded wreath tutorial

Directions:

  1. Using your hot glue gun, glue the split wooden balls around the wreath hoop leaving the bottom part empty. (For reference, I used 28 wooden balls. You can use more or less depending on how many flowers you want to add).
  2. Next, use your floral wire to attach your greenery and flowers. You can also hot glue them if easier. I chose to use floral wire so that I could easily switch out the florals with the change of seasons.
  3. Optional – if you want, tie a ribbon on the top to add a little more pizazz!

And that’s it! Seriously looks like something you would get off of Etsy! Super easy, cute for spring and easily interchangeable for every season!

No sew dropcloth curtain tutorial

These no sew dropcloth curtains are an easy way to change the look of any space. Recently we updated our living room decor (you can see the post here). We got rid of the old sheers that we had hanging and added these for some easy and inexpensive farmhouse flair.

This is probably one of the EASIEST diys I have ever shared. There’s no sewing or cutting and it’s super cheap. It’s literally 2 steps and will totally warm up any room. Check out the tutorial below.

Instructions:

1.) The first thing I did was I took my dropcloths out of the package and washed them with a generous amount of fabric softener, then threw them in the dryer. This was probably the part of the tutorial that took the most time. Dropcloths can be tough and scratchy and I wanted mine to have more of a soft, linen-like feel. This also faded the color a little bit which I think makes it look more rustic. You can totally skip this step if you like the dropcloths as is when you get them.

2.) Next I laid out each drop cloth on the floor and folded the top part down about 24 inches. (You will need to measure your window for the part to determine how much of the material you are going to fold down on top so that it hits the floor at the right lenght).

3.) Then with your curtain clips on the curtain rod, clip the folded part of the dropcloth with the ruffle facing the front.

Then just fluff.

That’s it. Super easy. I love an easy farmhouse DIY and I just may add these to some of the other rooms in our house.

DIY engineer prints of your kids

If you’ve been on instagram or pinterest I’m sure you’ve seen those really big black and white photos you can do of your kids.  They are also called “engineer prints” and I have been wanting to do them for my two boys for awhile now. I typically don’t decorate with many pictures throughout our home but I thought these were a fun way to add some personality to a room.

Here are my tips for DIY engineer prints of your kids:

And for more decor inspiration, be sure to check out my Etsy shop!

1.) Start with a plain background. I chose a blank white wall in my house and used that as my backdrop. This will make your subject (in this case your child) pop.

2.) You’re gonna want to use a quality camera. Because these are engineered prints, if you were to use the camera on your phone, the picture is going to come out very pixelated. Using a camera will keep your image clear.

3.) Do some editing. I like to use the Lightroom App to brighten my photos. And then I made them black and white.

4.) Get them printed. I had these printed at Staples for like $3.50 each. (They are 24×36 inches)

5.) Frame them. I chose these white frames from Amazon. But if you’re hanging them on a lighter wall I think a dark brown or black frame would look good.

Now for my next project … convincing the hubs to whitewash this knotty pine to modernize it a bit. What do you think?
