This week in the One Room Challenge we started to put the finishing touches on our nursery. Next week I will share images of the final thing, and hopefully Baby T. will be snoozing away in there shortly after![Read more…] about NURSERY RENOVATION-SPRING 2020 ONE ROOM CHALLENGE: WEEK 7
BOHO SPRING HOOP WREATH WITH FAUX FLORALS
This is how I updated my fall wreath from last year for a springy vibe!
I used faux florals and hot glue, and that’s it!
The directions on how to assemble a more in depth hoop wreath are in my post about how I made my fall wreath.
If you make a boho fall wreath, share it with my on Insta!
DIY PAPER BATS
Once when we lived in Syracuse a giant bat flew into the house and James wasn’t home to get it out for me. These bats are way less startling than that.
I don’t really do spooky decor because, honestly, I don’t need my stress levels any higher than they already are. I do, however, enjoy the coziness of fall decor.
I combined both with these white paper bats. They add texture to the space and make it festive!
Paper of choice
Small glue dots
1. Draw your bats.
2. Cut them out.
3. Bend the wings to add dimension.
4. Adhere to wall with small glue dots and you’re done!
HOW TO PAINT A DENIM JACKET
I always get a little craftier during the colder months, and with the wedding coming up in March, that just fuels the fire even more. Not Christmas related at all, but this weekend I took the time to paint an old denim jacket that I’ve worn for years, with my new last name. If anything, I figure I can at least wear it to the rehearsal dinner if it gets chilly outside. Although, let’s be real. Florida and chilly are not likely to happen together.
- paint brushes
- acrylic paint
- fabric paint medium
- quilting pins
- chalk pencil
- cardboard or foam core
2. Wash and dry denim before starting.
3. Pin jacket to cardboard to give yourself an even surface
4. Sketch your design using the chalk pencil. If you mess up, just erase the chalk pencil with a damp towel.
5. Mix one part fabric medium with two parts of your paint. I mixed mine in a larger bowl since I was just using one color.
7. Heat set the paint with an iron. Lay a fabric barrier between the denim and the iron to prevent transfer, and iron for three to five minutes using a constant and even motion.
TIP: I’ve heard it’s best to wait around two weeks before washing your article of clothing so your design can fully cure.
I loved how this jacket turned out. The uneven edges and imperfectness of the painted text were frustrating at first, but it went with the vintage feel of the jacket. This refreshed piece is definitely making it into my wedding weekend wardrobe!
