DIY | Bed Canopy

Hey Guys! I am back with another DIY project. This project is a DIY bed canopy for Jordyn's bed, part of her room makeover. I searched the internet for bed canopies and found some on amazon for $15-$30. There was no way I was going to pay that much for a piece of thin sheer material. I knew I could make it for much cheaper. So I set out to the stores to gather up all my materials. To get started you will need the following: 1 pair of sheer curtains ($3.49 Ikea) Quilting Hoop ($2.49 Wal Mart) White grosgrain ribbon ($0.99 Wal Mart) Scissors (had on hand) Lighter (had on hand) Ceiling hook ($1.49 Wal Mart) Total Cost: $6.97 First I started out by slipping both sheer curtain panels onto my quilting hoop. I bought my curtains from Ikea and they were on sale for $3.49. Next I took a long piece of my white ribbon and tied knots on each end of the hoop to secure the ribbon in place. Then I cut small holes in each sheer curtain panel and then took … [Read more...]

DIY Throw Pillows | Decor

Hey Guys! The next project in my daughter's room makeover includes some DIY Throw Pillows for her bed. If you missed my first project click here to see my DIY bulletin board. I searched online for some DIY ideas that were simple, sleek and pretty. I couldn't find any that piqued my interest so I decided to come up with my own design. I started out with purchasing 4 matching throw pillows for $20 on Craigslist score! Next while at my local Ikea I picked two GURLI cushion covers in the color gray. Then I headed to my local Wal Mart to find something to jazz up my pillows with. In the craft section, I found this roll of sparkly trim that had 2 yards and was just over $2. I decided to cut each strip Next once I figured out what designed I wanted to do on the pillow covers. I pinned the trim down in place and began hand stitching. This process was tedious and time consuming, not gonna lie. I did most of while lounging around the house watching TV. But in the … [Read more...]

DIY: Bulletin Board

Hey Guys, I am in the process of redecorating Jordyn's room to make it a little more mature. If you remember or would like a refresher on how her old décor looked check it out here! Up first is this easy little DIY Bulletin Board, this was one of my old previous DIY projects. I thought I had a post on this but sadly it looks like I never made one :( Here is a picture of the board (before) I made this a few years ago to hold all of Jordyn's hair bows and hair clips. It is a piece of mdf covered with batting and an old white sheet that I cut and used to make my foundation. Next I cut strips of ribbon (different colors and sizes and hot glued them onto the board. Then I just slid her hair bows onto the ribbon strips. I wanted to reuse this board and breathe new life into it. So I started by cutting off all the strips of ribbon and started with my original base (old white sheet). Next I looked into my craft stash and found these two spools of ribbon.

Hey Guys! I was in desperate need of a new hook holder for my crochet hooks. So I went about scouring the net to find some patterns. I found this beauty over at Craft Town.      Sooo....I am not that great at reading patterns, I get confused and lost. This pattern was no exception. I started fine but then I couldn't understand what the pattern was telling me to do next. So I did my own thing. I will list my pattern that I came up with but I'll warn you, it's tedious and probably the long way of completing it but it worked for me! Here is what I did: ch 41 Row 1: 40 sc, turn Row 2-35: ch 1, 40 sc, turn It should look like a big square Next, I changed colors and after I attached my cc to the middle of the square on the left side (I eyeballed the middle) 4 sc, ch 1, turn repeat this pattern until the strip is the length of the square, it will look like this Next, you just flip the strip over the square like … [Read more...]

Hey Guys,  A couple of months ago Mimi G created this easy tutorial for We All Sew and I thought I would give it a whirl.
