Flower Hair Wreath DIY

Roses Hair Wreath




This is my granddaughter, Faith...  I had a garland of roses - silk roses, that is.

We just circled it around the top of her head and secured it with bobby pins. That's it. It couldn't be simpler and I think it came out really pretty!





Hope you enjoyed this! It was totally fun and easy! Any silk flower garland would be just as easy and there are lots and lots of silk flowers at Joann's or Michael's.

Turn Your Home into a Summer Beach Bungalow with These Fun Ideas.

Make your home into a beach bungalow this summer and feel the enjoyment of the beach.

Want the feeling that you're at the seashore? I do. I LOVE the beach. 

Why do people feel happier at the beach? There is a little science behind it.  Some research shows that the sound of waves crashing on the sand can change your brain wave patterns making you calmer and the tiny negative ions can improve your mood. These negative ions can be found in the mountains and after a summer shower. What's nicer than hearing seagulls calling as you soak up the sun?

Not going to the beach this year? Get the vibes by transforming your home into a summer beach bungalow. These DIY ideas are AWESOME!!

Look at these awesome letters by Debi's Design Diary.



Awesome shell table how-to.



I made this Beach Cottage square wreath from an old frame. Complete instructions HERE.


Jellyfish DIY Lights


Vertical Beach Shell Decor - I love this....


What to do with your vacation shells? Cheerios and Lattes has the answer!



Sand and Sisal made this beautiful side table from a large ceramic planter!


Don't you just love this Memo Board Fishing Net???



Make Shell Candles - light your nights with these sweet candles........


Carolyn's Homework is one of my favorite blogs and she made this sisal wreath. Love it. She also has a tute on how to make the glass floats


Hope you are getting into the beachy summer vibe! I am so ready to completely enjoy summer.

Best wishes,

Ball Fringe Pillows

You are going to love these ball fringe pillows! I do. 

Ball fringe was OUT for years and now it's back IN and very popular! YAY!

I LOVE ball fringe!

I lined up the different ball fringe I bought. I kinda went overboard, I think, but there are SO many awesome, pretty colors at Joann Fabrics.

Joann Fabrics had every color ball fringe and even multi-colored ball fringe. That multi-colored ball fringe was $11.99 a yard. That's crazy, but I found some flaws and the girl marked it down 60% so I did end up buying some of that one, too. The others were $5.99 but I had coupons so I splurged! It just makes me happy to look at all the pretty colored ball fringe.

I just love thinking about what I can do with it, too. I want to embellish all kinds of things... hmmm.. I think another post on how to embellish everything with ball fringe is coming..







I made these pillows from scratch. I cut out the fabric 15 inches x 15 inches. I applied the ball fringe as I made the pillow but I am sure it can be applied onto a store bought pillow and it would be very easy to do.


What are you waiting for? Make something with ball fringe. It's so fun! And now it's trendy!

Best wishes,
