A Simple Way To Make Your Own Infinity Scarf

These infinity scarves became so popular last year.  You can make one yourself in about five minutes with less than $3.50!  Let me show you how it’s done! Now that fall has arrived I want to wear scarves every day.  Last winter I started making my own scarves as gifts for friends and family and I have to share this trick with you.  Jersey fabric is so inexpensive, usually about $4 to $12 a yard.  It won’t fray after it is cut, and is so comfortable to wear.  Nobody wants to wear an itchy scarf.  I love these with any outfit – the are soft and comfy, but don’t...

Repurpose Old Shutters – A Charming Kids Height Chart

Height charts for children are not always an easy thing to incorporate into home decor.  I used these old, charming, rustic shutters paired with some canvas baby photos of my little ones to create a perfect area to display how much they have grown. When at my in-laws one day, I noticed a thin piece of Sheetrock laying up against their wall.  As I investigated further my heart fluttered as I realized what it was.  It was a height chart for their three children (one of which I am lucky enough to call my husband).  Their children are all grown up and moved out of the house.  All I could...

All you need is a t-shirt, a bleach pen, and a cutting board or piece of cardboard.  I use the cranimals kids shirts from Walmart. ...
