Here is a quick trick I use around the holidays to transform framed pictures into temporary holiday decorations. Making those framed pictures fit in with your holiday decor is super simple, and it takes just minutes to transform them to fit the season. Pieces of fabric inserted into a frame can be as simple or festive as you like and make a big impact without a lot of money or time. You can then add window clings, or wall decals to make your frame sparkle and shine with Christmas flare without damaging the glass. It is a totally temporary solution for the holidays, super inexpensive, and easy too!
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.
What does a chronic DIYer do with a new package of 80’s glam permanent markers, and a pair of $4.00 thrifted Nike Shocks? Well customize them with the perfect colors to suit her style, of course. I know – you think I’m crazy, but why not – it’s just for fun! I turned a plain pair of white sneakers into colorful customized tennis shoes.
Adding your family’s monogram is a great way to personalize your home and tailor it to your specific style. Making one on the cheap is simple, using some pretty paper, spray paint, and a thrift store mirror. Using a good will frame I came up with the perfect monogrammed wall decoration for our home, and you can too.
