Fabric Lion Bust DIY

While we are still kind of a long way out in having our nursery ready to go (picture nervous emoji face here), it’s been fun getting to start on some DIY projects that I can add into the space once we get all the big things in place (like this cute unicorn photo holder). Another idea that I was on the lookout for was a fabric lion bust to add…

Wooden Animal Photo Holder DIY

Now that I am in the third trimester of my pregnancy (yay!), I can feel the nesting instincts kicking in stronger than ever. So far most of those instincts have been directed towards cleaning, organizing, and spending hours and hours online looking up baby-related items, but I also wanted to make sure that I made a few items for our baby’s nursery as well. Since we will all be "getting…

Nursery Decor… Teach Me Your Ways!

Earlier this month Jeremy and I completed our dossier, which unlocked a new level of baby prep—NURSERY DECOR. We intentionally saved this whole she-bang for this stage in our adoption because this is where it gets REAL hard. Yeah… filling out hundreds of pages of paperwork is easy when you compare it to waiting. And we have no idea how long our wait will be. We’ve been told to prepare…

Scandinavian Wall Art DIY

I’m a big fan of making your own wall art when you’re looking to fill a space or add some interest to a room. I’m also a fan of that sweet spot where those hippy vibes intersect with Scandinavian design and birth something a little bit of both! Can we call it Hippy-Scandi? Did we just make that up? Get me to the patent office! This project would work beautifully…

Pizza Plush DIY (+ Giveaway!!)

One of my favorite skill sets I have from living the “homeschooled-and-my-mom-is-an-art-teacher” life growing up is that my mom taught me to sew simple projects. I would make stockings for Christmas and hem pants. Then in my teen years, I started my own fashion label called FlipSide and sewed my own, uh, unique creations. Thankfully I am no longer sewing velvet panels into the sides of my pants, but I…

Elsie’s Palm Springs Inspired Kiddo Room

Today I am super excited to share a tour of the newest completed room in our home, our kid-friendly guest room! Due to the fact that we moved seven hours away from our family and some of our closest friends this past year, it was a HUGE priority for us to create guest room(s) that are family friendly. Most of our siblings and friends have young children, so our goal…

Felt Succulent Window Box DIY

I’m really excited to share today’s post! You guys know I’ve been totally obsessed with creating a Palm Springs themed, kid-friendly guest room, right? No? Oh, OK… well here’s a little recap! First I shared a DIY for gold foil cactus wallpaper. It came out pretty magical and got the room off to a great start. Then Laura helped me create some large scale plush cacti. They’re so cute! And…

Felt Cactus Plush DIY

When I started brainstorming for our kiddo-friendly guest room, one of the first themes that came to mind was Palm Springs. Not only am I a complete addict for all things Palm Springs, but one of my favorite d.i.y. directions of ALL TIME is turning adult things into kiddo things. Felt desert plants, nods to Frank Sinatra and fun pool floaties and the 1960s… I covered pages and pages in…

Mini Pom Pom Pillow DIY

Do you ever want to add more interesting throw pillows to your space but need more than your budget would allow? Do you have the itch to sew your own but get sad over the fabric selections available in local chain stores? Enter the mini pom pom. I was inspired by these pillows at Anthropologie and got pretty swoony over that particular shade of yellow on a cream background! I…

Copper Pipe Child’s Desk DIY

Long live the copper pipe and all its many uses! I designed this child-sized copper pipe desk after being inspired by a vintage set of stairs that were probably taken out of an elementary school’s music department. I made some changes to help with stability and have already apologized to Ruby for deciding I need this desk to stay in my studio instead. Since copper is a softer metal, I…

Pom Pom Oversized Floor Pillow Tutorial

I spend a lot of time on the floor at my house! If I’m not crafting on the floor, I’m crawling after a child or reading a story. This can make for sore knees or a numb rear end. So we’ve recently added a few floor pillows to make things a little cozier. As much as I appreciate a soft place to perch, I also love an excuse to sew…

Try This: Potato Stamped Curtain Panel Tutorial

Sometimes you hear about a craft technique for years without ever feeling any desire to try it out, and then one day you just have to! In my case this was potato stamping. It sounded kind of gross, and I wasn’t convinced it would get me the results I wanted on a DIY project I would actually want to use in my house. Then one day I needed a curtain…

House Shaped Shelf DIY

Sometimes I don’t realize my attraction to a style of decor until it shows up a dozen times in my Pinterest boards. Recently I noticed I had saved quite a few nurseries with house-shaped shelves on the walls and cute little knick knacks on display in the cubbies. (This and this were two of my favorites.) I realized how much I loved the simple object with a whimsical shape, and…

Fabric Storage Bins—They’re Reversible!

I’ve got toys and stuffed animals a-plenty. I’ve got blankets and pillows galore. You want bouncy balls? I’ve got twenty! So I figured it’s time to make more cute storage solutions for corralling all the loose stuff in our home. These fabric storage bins are the perfect storage solution for soft items that can be stuffed inside, like extra blankets or stuffed animals. And bonus—storage bins have become fashionable home…

Hand-Painted Abstract Curtain Panel DIY

With so many fun abstract patterns making the Internet rounds right now, I knew I needed to try my hand at it, too. I painted this curtain panel for my daughter’s room, so I went with bright, cheerful colors in simple shapes. This window is rather narrow compared to the rest of her room, so I only needed one panel to cover it, but I’m considering making another set for…

Hula Hoop Tent Tutorial

There’s just something about a covered play area that opens up the doors to a kiddo’s imagination. Tents, canopies, teepees and forts all make for special hideouts, and really only require some sheets and rope to put together. But if you’d like something more polished hanging in your home, this canopy-style tent might be just the thing! I fell in love with this medieval-inspired play home at The Land of…
