Recycle Kid’s Outgrown Clothes Into Play Pillows

Ever catch your child running around in a way too tight shirt that you know they dug out of the “too small” bin in the basement?  They promptly tell you that the shirt fits just fine even though their belly is sticking out, and they can bearly fit their arms into the sleeves.  You know those favorite shirts that they just can’t seem to get enough of!  Here is a way that I have discovered to make those favorite shirts last just a little bit longer.  Instead of packing them away or donating the kid’s favorite outgrown clothes I love to make them into little pillows...

Budget Kitchen Island Makeover

As I mentioned in my last post I wanted to go into a little more detail on how I wallpapered, painted and then distressed our kitchen island.  I am going to guess that the total cost to change up our kitchen island was less than $6.oo.  I used paint colors that we had left over from other projects and less than half of a roll of paintable bead board wallpaper.  This is a great option if you have a kitchen island that doesn’t get a lot of abuse and needs a makeover – it looks pretty and the price is certainly right!  You can read all about my budget kitchen makeover here, but...

Homemade Christmas Decor – Burlap Pillows

Last week I shared with you the first three out of four DIY Christmas projects that I have been working on that involve burlap.  Something about the simple natural texture of burlap, makes me want to create everything that I can with it.  With my leftover yard or so of burlap I created three very simple, but pretty decorative pillows to add to our Christmas decor.  Burlap, stuffing, thread and a sewing machine were all I needed to make these pillows, but some red craft paint and a stencil of the words Peace, Love, and Joy transformed them into a special addition to our home for the...

Make Your Own Personalized Photo Christmas Ornaments

Photo ornaments are a perfect way to add a special ornament to the tree each year to commemorate each Christmas.  They also make a fabulous gift for the people that you are closest too.   I have been creating an ornament each year to add to our own tree, and for the kids to give to their Grandmas, Grandpas, Aunts, and Uncles for their trees too.  Buying personalized ornaments from stores or photo labs can be really expensive, especially if you are buying a lot of them at once.  Here is a great way to create personalized photo ornaments at home for a fraction of the cost that are just as...
