This shelf is a fast and easy project that can add character to any room in your house! There are so many fun ways you can decorate these little shelves. My favorite items to use are succulents, books, and sweet keepsakes.
Here are the supplies you will need. The size of the wooden board will depend on how big you want your shelf to be. I used a 14' oak board that I got cut at Home Depot. I didn't stain this board because I loved the natural color of the oak. If you do want to stain or paint it, I would do that before you drill the holes. If you don't have a drill, go buy one. They come in handy for all sorts of projects and DIY's. The size of the drill bit will depend on the thickness of your string. There are numerous different types and widths of string at Home Depot. Finally, you need some sort of nail or hanger to hang your shelf.
Begin by drilling four holes into each corner of the board. I'm not a perfectionist so I just eyeballed the holes. But if you want it to be perfect you will want to measure the distance between the holes.
Next, measure the length of the string that you would like to hold the board. Add a few inches for the knots at each end. I criss-crossed the string so that it would hang evenly on my wall.
Here is what the bottom of the shelf and the finished shelf will look like. Now all you have to do is measure the wall that you're going to hang it from and hammer in a nail! Enjoy your beautiful shelf!
What I love most about this wreath is that it's perfect for Christmas but you can also use it year around! You can add a bow to make it more Christmasy or you can just leave it plain, either way it's beautiful and SO simple to make!
It's finally Christmas decorating time! I'm the kind of person that would put a Christmas tree in every room in the house. But since we don't have the budget for that, I make do with what I have. I'm always tempted to go out and buy so many decorations for Christmas but before I do, I go through what I have, get rid of the decorations I don't like, and repurpose some decorations from previous seasons.
Fall weather has yet to arrived in Georgia and I'm feeling a little antsy about wearing boots and sweaters. But in the meantime, I'm making use of my time by making adorable fall decor items!Here is my new favorite fall craft project, cork stopper pumpkins! Is this not the cutest? These are great to make with recycled cork stoppers from wine bottles, however, if you don't drink wine, don't worry! You can buy cork stoppers at any craft store or in bulk from Amazon! (I'll link them below)
October is finally here and with it comes cooler weather, fun decor, pumpkin spice everything, and stunning fall foliage! Today I want to share a few easy tips on how to create and take pictures of your little ones so that you can capture some of the magic of this season!
It's officially Fall at the Weber's and I couldn't be more excited! Fall is my favorite season but I've never really decorated much for fall until we moved into our new house last year. Now, it's my second favorite season to decorate for (Christmas is my first) I've put together a simple tutorial for a fall wreath! It's similar to the one I did for spring. Since this wreath has a bow, I linked the tutorial for this for you.
I am SO excited about sharing this tutorial with you. It might be my favorite DIY project to date PLUS my husband even said he thought it was one of the best things I've done.
There's nothing I like better than a good dollar store craft that looks expensive. I've also managed to kill countless succulents so I try to find new ways to keep them alive. I feel like succulents have been falsely advertised as "easy to keep alive," with "minimal care." But in reality they need sun, a pot that allows it to drain water, and it needs to be watered when it's completely dry. They also benefit from using special soil.
With an almost one year old crawling (almost running) around the house. I'm always looking for a fast project I can accomplish in a short period of time. I made this wreath in less than 15 minutes which is perfect because I made it during a nap time and was still able to get some chores done around the house. If you need a simple, fast, and affordable spring wreath for your front door, this tutorial is for you!
This simple DIY project is one of my favorite projects I've made so far. It's easy, fast, and looks like a million bucks. I also prepped 20 of these (with the help of a friend) for my local MOPS group.
I am not a perfectionist. When it comes to flower arranging I probably fall more into the "Adventuresome Anne" or "Wild Wilma" category. (See previous post) Introduction to Flower Arranging. I'm as much in this learning process as you are. That's why I want to document my experience, so that you can feel the freedom to play around with flowers and not feel like you have to have the perfect, tight, put together, flower arrangement.
