I have been planning this project for 6 months after watching my favorite design show,Â "Home By the Novogratz". Â In one of the episodes artistsÂ Camomile HixonÂ designed some amazing glitter art pieces that made meÂ drool! Â I instantly knew her word art was something i had to recreate- Â the hardest part wasÂ committingÂ to a word! Â I wanted a playful word that would make me smile when I looked at it. Â I decided on the word "WILD!" because a) life isÂ alwaysÂ better when its a little wild and b) Wild One by Those Darlin's was one of my favorite songs in college- so brings back fun memories.
I spottedÂ Confetti System garlands Â and fell in love with the Â mix of colors and textures. Â These garlands areÂ absolutelyÂ beautiful, but they come Â at a steep $100+ price. Â Making them a perfect DIY project to add some color and inspiration to my office. Â I decided to go with ribbon vs fabric so the sides wouldn't fringe, but i'm sure if you did some searing you could find the right type of fabric. Â I fishtailed the ribbons onto a string and fastened them with a piece of gold metal.
The garland turned out beautifully and I love the playfulness it adds to my work environment.
I turned my grandfathers oldÂ jeweler'sÂ chest into aÂ jewelryÂ boxÂ a few months ago.Â Â Today I am revisiting the jewelry box and creating a new home for my rings. Â This ring holder is a quick and easyÂ project that is perfect for organizing and displaying your rings and it only requires two materials, foam and a knife.
Now my rings look so pretty!
Getting ready for the holidays around here with anÂ easy and inexpensive DIY for the holidays. Â All you need are green post-it notes, ribbon and sparkly paper to recreate this door/wall christmas tree.
Merry Christmas! (post-it note style)
