Orchid Covered L.O.V.E. Letters DIY

valentine's day decorations 2.2

The other day I made these orchid covered letters to spell out the word, “LOVE” so I could decorate for Valentine’s Day. I thought they came out really pretty, so I made a video showing you how easy they were to create! Though I am using them for Valentine’s Day, I also think they would be a fun idea for a baby or wedding shower.

Tomorrow I will be showing you the entire area that I decorated so be sure to come back to check it out!

Gold Leaf Bowl DIY

gold leaf bowl diy 11.1

I’m not the first blogger to do a gold leaf DIY, nor am I certainly the last, but I thought this was a fun little project that came out beautifully! I tend to hate all of my crafts and want to throw them away as soon as I finish them, but this one is a keeper. You might remember in my Super “Bowl” party we decorated little white bowls using Sharpie markers. I thought it would be cool to take it to the next level and gold leaf the inside of the bowl.  To be totally honest I was kind of intimidated of gold leaf and thought it would be a pain, but it ended up being way easier than I expected, and the final product looked amazing!

The solution? A handy little organizer for keeping everything straight.

Easy Halloween Craft (For Adults)

easy adult halloween craft 11.1

I was at Michael’s craft store the other day looking for a few supplies for my holiday display (yes, I have already started on the winter holidays! But in my defense, I am a blogger and most of us work ahead of the season, just like magazines) when I saw the cutest little wooden casket. Not sure anyone has referred to a casket as “cute” before! I thought it might make a fun wee Halloween diorama. So I looked around and found a sticker set from Jolees (here). It is supposed to be used for scrap booking, but who cares? It ended up being the perfect size for my little Halloween craft.
