Need some last minute ideas for your 4th of July?
We've got a few that are so fun, you might just want to keep them up ALL YEAR LONG!


I love the shape of our country its so dang cute! So we decided to turn that shape into art!

The one above was made with fabric on fabric...on fabric! Just find a a good shape, cut it out and spray glue the fabric right on top! Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

or use spray glue and cover it in glitter, because glitter is awesome :)

Get Your Cross Stitch On

So to do this Cross Stitch Cutie just find a shape that you want to do...

Then with an exacto knife cut out the shapes

(aren't Taylors hands pretty?) Then trace your design on your fabric

Then start Cross Stitching!

TIP: Don't cut any excess fabric until your completely finished! The fabric tends to stretch a bit and it's a lot easier to tighten if you have that extra fabric to pull on!

Perfect Paper Pinwheels

We have had SO MUCH FUN with this paper pinwheels and they are super simple to make! The pinwheel above was made of old book pages torn out and folded.

TIP: Lay the folded papers FACE DOWN as you are making your pinwheel, once you have them in place then just lay a few pieces of tape (we used painters tape) on the top to keep everything in place!

These book page pinwheels can be used all year long to change it up a bit just add some POPS of COLOR like the triangles cut from a used coke pack!

To make this type of pinwheel you just take some paper and roll it into a cone shape, then hot glue your cones to a piece of cardboard or card stock. (I'm talking about the paper cones...get your mind out of the gutter!;) Scrapbook paper is fun to use, but to get the red stripes like the one above we used regular printing paper and painted the lines with red nail polish! Waste Not Want Not!

Patriotic Pillows

How Adorable are These!? These are DEFINITELY staying up all year long!!! For these pillows we sent the image we wanted to a screen printer which transfers the image onto fabric. Then we just cut the fabric into the sizes we wanted, these are about 18 inches, and then sewed some fun fabric to the back!

DIY Simple and Sassy Sandbox!!!

Here is a QUICK and EASY DIY sandbox we made out of an OLD TIRE!
Most everyone has one or two of these lovelies lying around, so why not put it to some good use?!

Brush off any dirt or cobwebs, and spray paint it your desired color ( I used a Krylon brand in Turquoise)

Then just line the inside with some garden fabric and then pour in the sand!

Ours took about 4 25 pound bags

The PERFECT size sandbox, and my kiddos LOVE IT!!!!

Happy Spring!!!

Books on books on books

Books are one of my very favorite decorating accessories. You can never ever have too many cute books. When I go to the thrift store and buy all of these books, people look at me like I am a very intelligent smart girl. Little do they know, I'm only buying them to stack neatly in my home. Hehe

For this look, I ripped out different pages in different sizes. I rolled up about five pages at a time and tied them with some scrap fabric I had.

Need more closet space? Drink a coke...yep! :)

So who couldn't use more closet space? Maybe Kim I bet even she needs more!

So here is a SIMPLE solution:

Drink a Coke

Your keep the tabs from your cokes!

So all you need to do to double your closet space is simply place one hole of the tab on one hanger, then hook your second hanger on the other hoop!

And depending on how high your hanging rod is you could do this a third or even fourth time! But then you'd have to buy more clothes to fill up all that space you just made...dang.

Now you see it, Now you don't!

If there is any object that can throw off a rooms decor it's the GIANT printer/scanner!!! Now a days you can purchase a wireless printer stick it in a closet and call it macaroni...yep...macaroni.

But for all of us that refuse to spend money on such things there is another solution!


So I stuck mine under my desk! I placed it on top of an old wooden box that I turned on its side to add a little more storage space, I can't get enough storage space!

To hide my lovely printer I purchased a tension rod ( you can find these pretty much anywhere and they are extremely affordable ) Then I found an extra piece of fabric I had layin around and layed it on my bar front facing down, then I placed the tension rod over it. Then all you have to do is roll the top of your fabric over the tension rod and start gluing! I used E-6000 but a hot glue gun would work fine too! Or if you are REALLY super ambitious you could always sew it, meh!

When your glue is dry just scrunch up your fabric to give it that flowy feeling, I may have made that word up) then twist your tension into place and voila! The printer is hidden!

And that is that! Pretty simple eh?
