Why pay more than you have to for cute décor when you can make it yourself for half the price? I will show you how to make two different kinds of decorative balls on a budget!
Supplies you will need:
*Floramat Moss Mat (I got mine at Wal-Mart)
*2 Foam Balls (Dollar Tree)
*1-2 Packs Faux Cotton Pod Accents-depending on size of foam balls (Hobby Lobby)
*Glue Gun (Affiliate Link for my cordless glue gun I use-https://amzn.to/2QzOIlV)
For the cotton pod ball all you have to do is simply start hot gluing the pods to your ball. Don’t be afraid to use a lot of glue! I like to use the 2 Inch size for these ones as they turn out quite a bit bigger than you would expect.
Once I get all of my pods glued on and the glue has dried you can go back through and pull the cotton a little bit to fill your gaps. Easy enough, right?
Next for the moss balls I like to use 3 Inch foam balls. The sheet of floramat is plenty big so I like to cut my sheet into fourths. If you were using smaller sized balls you could easily cut your floramat into sixths and still have plenty.
Once you have your desired size of moss cut you will then peel the backing off of the back and begin to wrap around your ball. The moss is farely stretchy so don’t be afraid to pull on it to form it around the ball.
I like to cut off any excess moss to avoid having lumps. Secure any areas that may be sticking out with hot glue.
You can either leave them just like this or you can add twine to dress it up a bit. If you decide to add twine you will just simply add a dab of hot glue to secure the beginning and continue to wrap the twine around your ball.
When you have your desired amount of twine you will just secure the end down with hot glue and your done! Now your ready to decorate with your new décor!
Hey guys! I decided it was time to go out with the Easter décor and in with the more neutral Spring décor. I really enjoy creating cute grapevine wreaths for each season/holiday so I always make sure I have a couple on hand at all times! Here are a list of supplies I used for this one.
Grapevine wreath (Hobby Lobby)
Wooden “hello” cutout (Hobby Lobby)
Floral sprigs of your choice (Hobby Lobby)
Apple Barrel paint-I used the Key West color
Ribbon of your choice for bow (optional)
Glue gun-here is my affiliate link for the cordless one I use https://amzn.to/2GNDuXZ
Now for the fun part! The first thing I did was paint my “hello” so it could be drying while I assemble the rest of the wreath.
Next it’s time to add your floral sprigs to the grapevine wreath. There is no right or wrong way to do this. I just stick mine directly in the wreath. If need be you can certainly use your glue gun to secure them.
I always like to add a bow to my wreaths but you definitely wouldn’t have to if you didn’t want to! If you have watched any of my videos on my Facebook page you have probably seen me make this bow before. I found my ribbon at the dollar tree but you can use anything you have on hand. I like to use wired burlap as the base of my bow and one or two other types of ribbon. After you have chosen your ribbon you will want to cut your pieces of ribbon to similar lengths. Usually 4-5 inches is ideal depending on the size of bow desired.
I like to throw in some raffia to add a little something extra to my bow so just grab a bunch and put it right in the center of your bow. You will then take a couple extra strands of the raffia to wrap around the center of your bow to tie it off. You will want to flip your bow over and tie the extra strands of raffia as tight as you can to form your bow.
Once you have finished tying your bow you can cut off the excess raffia from the back and then flip your bow over and mess with it until you get it how you like it.
Now you are ready to glue on your “hello” and your bow!
Who else is loving decorating with wood bead garland? Well, your in luck! This blog post will show you how to make your own wood bead garland in no time. You can certainly tweak this to make it your own but I thought why not throw in some pops of color!
Here are the supplies you will need:
*5/8″ ribbon of your choice(optional) I got mine at Dollar Tree
I did a live video of me making wood bead garland and have included that below. These can be so versatile. I used red and blue ribbon in the garland I made in the video but you can easily switch out your colors of ribbon/tassels to make it more neutral or to make it for another season/holiday.
Here is another wood bead garland I made the same way but simply changed out the color of ribbon I used to make it more Springy!
Are you in need of some new home décor to spruce up a space in your home? This project can do just that. I love that this has a neutral color pallet so you can leave it up as long as you would like. This took me roughly 10 minutes to make. So quick and easy!

Are you ready to transition your home for Spring? These cute DIY vases will be the perfect addition!
First step is to gather all of your supplies. The vase came from Dollar Tree for $1 of course. I used two colors of Waverly chalk paint from Walmart. The colors I used were Agave and Peacock. I mixed the two colors until I achieved the teal color I was going for. The floral sprigs came from Hobby Lobby. I bought these on a week when florals were 50% off so were around $3 each. I always have the jute twine on hand so I just used some from my craft stash.
Now it’s time to create! I used a paper plate to mix my paint to the desired color. I then apply the first coat to the vase. Depending on your desired look you may want to do a second coat, I did not.
Once your vase has dried completely it’s time to glue the twine on. You want to be sure that you start and stop the twine on the back side of your vase. Simply add some hot glue and begin to wrap your twine around your vase until you have you desired amount. Once you have finished wrapping the twine secure it with another dab of hot glue on the back of the vase. I like to use my cordless glue gun for this so you don’t have to mess with the pesky cord.
You are now ready to add your florals and decorate your home with your new décor!
