ALL GOLD EVERYTHING! Or at least that’s how I have felt lately. I’ve had this plain jane vase sitting around for a while and luck would have it, I just bought new gold paint.
Giving gift cards sometimes can seem like such a cop out. Like I don’t know you well enough to give a real gift, but sometimes its inevitable.
The thing that probably gets me the most annoyed about gift cards is that they can look pretty plain. I saw this tiny craft paper bags and I couldn’t resist dressing them up for just the purpose of gift cards:
You could go a lot of different ways with these cute little bags! They are super inexpensive, I used stamps on this one and swapped out the plain handles for some cute blue baker’s twine. I would totally stuff it with some cute tissue, too!
So, I love no slip hangers. I found decently priced knock off huggable hangers at Nordstrom Rack, but I thought it would be fun to make my own.
I have all these wire hangers from the dry cleaners and I thought it would be super wasteful to just throw them away. I’ve seen tutorials were they use multiple wire hangers, but I wanted to keep mine super thin and just kept it one. Also, side note, this is kind of a long project. Dependent on how fast you can wrap, it takes 40 minutes to an hour to make one. So, it’s a good project for TV watching!
Here’s how mine turned out:
I used a bright colored yarn and did it the way you do for friendship bracelets. Just tie a knot at the beginning and then make a number four and pull the yarn through. Keep repeating this until you’ve covered the entire hanger. I don’t recommend just wrapping it because when you hang clothes on it, it may unravel – eek!
These could be a unique house warming gift or gift for a recent grad moving into a dorm with limited closet space (these are super thin, so they save serious closet space).
I’m pretty much in L-O-V-E with chalkboard paint. I’ve been slapping it on pretty much everything. I saw a really cute way to use it I never thought of before and thought I would try it out. It’s pretty much using a natural looking wood slice:
This is a very (very) easy craft to make! All you need is a wood slice (these can be found at your local craft store in a variety of sizes) and some chalkboard paint. I chose the Martha Stewart Chalkboard paint in a pretty blue. I thought black might be too dark. It took a few coats (make sure to wait at least and hour between coats) and then let set for 24 hours to cure. I’ve seen a lot of tutorials to make your own chalkboard paint, so if there’s a particular color you love – that might be the best for you! I’m thinking about adding a hook from a picture hanging kit to the back and hanging it by our front door.
Or maybe if I’m feeling lazy I will just leave it leaning on the window! Either way it’s totally cute!
