I saw this DIY craft on Pinterest and knew it would be perfect for my new kitchen. It was completely free to assemble because I had all the supplies already present in my crafts arsenal. A couple weeks ago I purchased this cutting board at a neighborhood garage sale, (I only paid $2 for it), and I had some old paint and I used an antique tin measuring cup for my lavender plant holder. The result was truly amazing! you must try this DIY craft, I highly recommend it.

This DIY rope serving tray is a winner at any gathering. I love serving dishes and have a fair collection.  My mom has even more and graciously lets me use her house like a completely awesome, free prop shop.  😉  But sometimes even she doesn’t have quite what I need. When that happens, sometimes I buy something for my collection, but more often, I like to make it.t only takes a few minutes, less than $2 of material, and looks perfect in a nautical or rustic setting.  I’m planning to re-use my rope baskets this Thanksgiving, in fact!

I had just found these adorable little mason jars at The Dollar Tree and thought they might just be perfect with Eileen’s sweet bird die that comes with two other dies in a set. Here’s how I made these tiny DIY Mason Jar planters. Paint the jars with several coats of DecoArt Chalky Finish paint, letting it try completely between applications. When totally dry, gently sand to remove some of the paint. Apply Elizabeth Craft Designs adhesive tape to the bottom of the jar and cover with ECD Antique Silver Microfine Glitter. To create the bird, adhere vintage French book pages to white cardstock. Die cut two birds using Eileen Hull’s bird die, remembering to reverse the layer of the second bird (cutting it with the non-text side down) so that it’s a mirror image. Adhere the bird die cuts to each other, sandwiching a skewer in between them. Let dry.

As I was walking through Walmart the other day, which rarely happens so I decided to check out the entire store. I actually found a few treasures like mums, pumpkins, & a wooden crate. The wooden crate for some reason was calling my name so I through the $8 surprisingly really well-built crate in my cart along with a few other items from Walmart to use on the crate. To my shock {& horror} I found this rolling wood crate that Walmart is selling for $210! Ummm no thank you, I will just make my own.  With all of my items that Walmart sells right in their store, I made my rolling wood crate for around $25. Got to love DIY my friends!!

I’d have to say it’s my all-time favorite magazine right now. House Beautiful and Architectural Digest has some stunning design but … a lot of times I can’t imagine living in those rooms. Country Living, however … I could move right in, throw a blanket on the couch and watch a movie. They do country chic. Elegant country decorating that always looks modern and up to date. Not corny or cheesy. So when I saw this basket in the June issue I knew I had to make it.  Firstly because I loved it and secondly because it looked ridiculously easy to make. I’m already planning on making another one of these.  Mainly because this one turned out a LOT bigger than I thought it would.  This one I’m going to use inside in the winter beside the fireplace for kindling and rolled up paper. In the summer it’s on the porch with magazines in it. The smaller one, I plan on making this weekend will be for gathering vegetables from the garden.

Whenever I’m out thrift store shopping I always find a plethora of abandoned teacups without their saucer counterpart.

Making a set of branch coasters from a fallen tree will allow the beauty of that wood to live on and tell the story in its rings. When you are out pruning and cutting back the garden, take a look at what you are about to throw in the wood chipper or firewood pile. Wood slices can be turned into many things, but my all-time favorite is these branch coasters that I ever made!
