CHRISTMAS TREE CUPCAKE TOPPER

Hello, friends! Kids love this simple idea that takes only minutes to make!      Cupcakes are yummy, and mini cupcakes are perfect for Christmas gatherings! One of my kiddos is gluten free, so I try to come up with ideas that are cute and not too “gluten free-y” because it seems the minute you tell someone that a dish is gluten free, it immediately gets stuck on a special table and no one wants to touch it. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is easily modified to become gf if you should need…

DIY Magnolia Wreath for Everyday Decorating

Magnolia wreaths are so pretty and popular! They’re also quite pricey. Make your own!    This isn’t perhaps the highly sought after magnolia wreath that you’ll find with all things farmhouse, but this wreath suits me perfectly! You probably already own a grapevine wreath, but if you do not, they generally cost next to nothing. You can find them at walmart, target, any craft store, etc. If you know a friend who grows any variety of grapes, ask them for some vines! These wreaths are so easy to make. All you need to do…

SPRAY PAINT YOUR CEILING FAN

Did you know that you can spray paint basically anything? Well, you can. And I did! I spray painted the ceiling fan on my porch while it was STILL ATTACHED.

Good ol’ Georgia clay! But let…

FALL PORCH IDEAS FOR YOUR OWN HOME

The porch is ready, the leaves are somehow turning, and yet it’s still blazing hot in Georgia. Well, chilly pumpkin-spice weather or not, the porch is ready. I repeat, the porch is READY! It is my favorite place to change up a few times a year. I love a cinderella pumpkin. Or three. (Or a million.) “Perhaps it is our imperfections that make us so perfect for one another.” -Mr. Knightley in Emma, an adaptation of Emma by Jane Austen. I love that picture, and that quote. I have said it over and over again…

DIY Blanket Tassels

DIY Blanket Tassels! Super simple to make, and you can unattach the tassel strand when you’re ready to wash the blanket. I’m loving all the tassel blankets on Instagram lately, but you know what I’m not loving? The $80 price tag! I’ll never be the kind of girl that pays that much for a blanket that is going ON MY PORCH. Nope. Not gonna do it. So I figured if I wanted one of these beauties, I was going to have to come up with something of my own. I hopped on…
