1  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Spooky Light Up Ceiling Garland SUPER easy! on: October 30, 2008 10:20:46 AM
This garland is SO easy to make and it looks fabulous on the ceiling of a porch. All you need are orange lights and black tulle. Cut the tulle into strips and tie it on the light string. That's it! It's SUPER easy!.The bushy tulle makes ceilings look like creepy caves and the lights reflects off them in a really cool way! More pics if you're interested:

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Decorated Glitter Sea Shell Ornaments or Thank-You's Great for kids! on: August 08, 2008 10:19:41 AM
When I was on vacation this week I saw these gorgeous shells hanging in a friend's house. When you flip them over they're actually Thank-You cards! Last night my niece and I experimented to find out how to color and glitter them. Create the hole with a jewelry awl or Exacto knife. A wash of acrylic paint works well as a base, then Sharpies for detail work! We affixed the glitter using gel medium and a dry brush, then used gloss sealant to finish it up. I have more pics on my blog as well as a few more decorating ideas. Super easy! I'm going to make a bunch myself and use them as tags on Christmas gifts.

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Fabric Covered Canvas Wall Art on: July 31, 2008 09:38:27 AM
I made some more fabric covered canvases to hang on my walls. This time I used a more delicate, silky sari material. It worked pretty well, I just had to repin and adjust it a lot. Turned out great though! The colors I used are the two accent colors in the room.

Super simple to do, just stretch your fabric over a blank canvas or canvas stretcher bars (cheaper!) and staple. I wrote up a tutorial here that includes safety issues, pining and additional ideas. This is a great way to bring color into your rooms if you can't paint!

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Beach Glass Artwork on: July 30, 2008 08:48:58 PM
If you have beach glass collected from a special vacation, turn it into art! I cut out the heart, laid it on my prepped paper and then hot-glued the glass around it. When the glass is dry, remove the heart! You can sign it with the name of your vacation spot and the date!

You can also do house numbers and initials. I have a few other glass ideas on my blog as well. Enjoy!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fun Vintage Jewelry Magnets on: July 30, 2008 08:46:01 PM
I made a ton of these for a tutorial and now my fridge looks so pretty!

You don't really need a tutorial. Just pop off the back, hot glue a magnet on and you're good to go. I do have a few additional ideas for the on my blog though, if you're interested!
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / River Rock Bathmat or Door Mat on: July 30, 2008 08:43:28 PM
I've been seeing these in stores with a pretty big price tag so I made my own for less than $12.00.

Here are the basic instructions. I have more on my blog, along with info on what mats and adhesives to use links to other rock projects. I hope you guys like it!

1. Cut your mat to your desired size. I cut mine into a 2.5 X 1.5 foot piece.

2. If your rocks are dirty, clean them and allow to dry. Sort out the rocks you want to use and lay them out on your mat until youre satisfied with the arrangement. Try to keep the rocks as flat as possible for a smooth surface.

3. Lay a plastic drop cloth under your mat to catch the glue drips, then, one at a time glue your rocks down.
4. Let dry then peel off the plastic. If any plastic stuck to your mat just peel it off, or use a stiff wire brush to scrub it loose.

4. If youd like your mat to be sturdier, enforce the bottom with chicken wire or a finer grade wire mesh in between another piece of your mat material.
