A Few Random Home Decor Items
I recently came across a few random photos that I never got around to sharing and thought it would be kind of fun to combine them all and share them in one blog post.
I’m always making things for my home. Whether it’s decorations for my home, birthday decorations, simple homemade gifts or just trying to DIY some type of home organization…
I’m always up to something.
But I don’t always get around to sharing everything because I either think it’s maybe too simple to share, or I get distracted and start working on another project that ends up bumping that old project to the back burner…
I do try to make it a point to photograph many of these DIY’s though in case I change my mind and decide to post them or have some spare time to play with. (Hardly ever)
Thank the good Lord for cameras!
Most of what I’m sharing today is somewhat on the easy side and mostly anyone can bring them together with a few simple supplies or things already on hand.
You can also customize these ideas to suit the season you are in by changing up the colors or items you are using or even make them for everyday decorations.
A Few Random Home Decor Items
I love the Christmas Tree Shop. They always have such beautiful finds. It never fails that me and my five-year-old daughter come out of there with at least a couple of bags of stuff that we probably could have done without, but couldn’t pass up!
I picked up the gold candle wreath below right before the holidays and ended up making a simple door wreath by wrapping a white faux poinsettia off to the side.
Then I added a strand of twine for hanging.
I usually don’t use too much red to decorate for fall. But last year I did, and really loved it.
I never got around to sharing this small faux floral centerpiece but luckily I did get to photograph it before taking it apart once the season was over.
I made this floral centerpiece using three faux flowers, some red and white ribbon, and a recycled jar.
A very simple, but of so pretty, heart painting.
I started by painting different shaped hearts on cardstock then cut out the best hearts and ended up framing these three with white tissue paper for the background.
I originally came across this frame when I visited this blog, while I was on the hunt for some fall wall decor ideas. She really created a beautiful display on her wall with a larger version of these frames. You may want to check it out when you can.
Here I taped paper hearts together, another Christmas Tree Shop find, to make two Valentine’s Day wall decorations and then finished by adding twine for hanging.
A pink heart on a stick (from Walmart), a mason jar, and some pink beaded jewelry that I’ve had forever play the part of vase fillers.
All I did here was cut out a few small red hearts on cardstock for more Valentine’s Day decor this past holiday. The rest of the items I picked up on previous trips to a variety of different stores.
(Poinsettias, Dollar Store…Red Hearts in vase, Walmart…Adorable Bird, Target)
Lastly, a birthday garland for my daughter’s birthday. We usually don’t have actual birthday parties for my daughter, but no matter how we decide to celebrate I always like to decorate our home for both her as well as me and my husband’s birthday.
I taped hearts that I cut out last year for Valentine’s Day onto twine then added flower and bird stickers (the kid in me) as well as adhesive pearls to the hearts.
There are actually two separate garlands in the photo below, it may not be very clear to see but you can see the longer one down below.
That’s it for now. Hope you enjoyed everything!
Sending happy, safe, and healthy vibes your way. May God bless you and your family today and every beautiful day to come.
