How is it already February?? It’s been a heck of a busy year for us already. Time has gotten away from me, for sure. I’ve been wanting to craft for weeks, but never really had the extra time. Finally, I can share my latest Valentine DIY with you guys! Ya’ll know I love to party plan, and cake toppers are definitely one of my favorite crafts to make when it comes to parties. I made these clay heart toppers with oven-bake clay and they’re super easy to create. They take about 30 minutes from start to finish. And look how cute!
Whew, it’s been a busy month so far! I was hoping to post this DIY much sooner… but shopping, work, mom stuff, and family get-togethers have slowed me down a little. I made an easy stocking tutorial that doesn’t take much time at all to complete. Even with Christmas a few days away, you still have plenty of time to create your own colorful pompom stockings!
My snake plant has really been thriving this past year, which makes me so happy. I’ve always had sort of a “black thumb” when it comes to plants, and could never really keep them alive for too long. As of now, I have 13 plants on my patio that are growing more and more. Hopefully that means I’m getting better at keeping them alive, or they’re just way too easy to take care of. Either way, I ain’t complaining! But as the weather is changing and the temperatures are dropping, I can’t help but worry a little if they’ll continue to thrive. Last year, I kept them all in my garage and that seemed to sustain them through the winter. This year, I’ve decided to bring a few indoors so I can still gawk at them from time to time. I jazzed up a tomato stand and planter to display my snake plant in my dining room, and I’m digging how it turned out!
For all of you procrastinators out there, you are not alone! I’ve got a last minute Halloween DIY, and it only requires TWO items. I picked up some liquid metal paint the other day and made metal drip pumpkins. They’re absolutely gorgeous. I just love the effect it creates. Its shiny sheen metallic glaze totally adds the perfect touch atop these little mini gourds! They also make great Thanksgiving decorations. and would look amazing as centerpieces.
