While most of my recent blog posts have, obviously, centered around entertaining the kids over their summer break, I haven’t completely strayed away from my crafty ways, there has just been little time to share it with you all. Since we spend most of our time in the summer outdoors, I do find that I try to make the spaces that we hang out in a little more inviting. Today I wanted to share with you three of my favorite DIY outdoor signs that I have made to decorate our outdoor spaces and add a little bit a charm. I love making signs, because I get to create them exactly the way I want them, instead of looking for pieces that fit the bill. They always turn out to be exactly what I need.
Well last weekend was eventful in our house, as I’m sure it was in lots of yours too. After a couple days of food and family, we got the house all decked out for Christmas. It is one of my favorite family activities of the year, and the kids love everything about it too! This year I added a few new Christmas decorations that I made myself with a few simple, and inexpensive supplies. This one includes a scrap piece of burlap, some red craft paint, glitter, and a thrifted embroidery hoop. This project was super cheap but has a big impact in our living room. A simple, sweet message in glitter to remind us what the season is all about.
