It’s Fall Y’all! As you fill the shorter days with apple picking and pumpkin patching/spicing take a look at this fall centerpiece. This simple centerpiece is perfect for all your favorite fall gatherings. You can also use different colors for any event really.
Tis the season! Festive food, family and all that jazz but how is your front door looking? A few weeks ago I painted my front door blue and I have been feeling the need to add more pizzazz to it. Hmm wreaths are pretty pizzazz-y (is that a word? *Spoiler Alert* it isn’t).
Backstory: My current mini obsession is making pom poms and tassels. They are super easy to make and you can put them any where and today it is going on a wreath. Sure, I could of bought a regular wreath but when is the last time I did anything “regular?” This pom pom wreath makes me feel so happy when I come home and I am going to show you how to make one!
Cut 6″ of yarn, set aside.
Wrap around the yarn around your fingers about 50 times.
Remove the yarn from your fingers but make sure you keep the shape.
Take the piece of 6″ yarn and tie a tight double knot in the middle of the yarn loop.
Cut the top and bottom of the yarn loop.
Trim and fluff just make sure you don’t trim the “tail” of the pom-pom.
Pow! Make it rain with pom poms. *Pro tip* you can use a comb to make your pom-pom even more fluffy!
Now that you know how to make a pom pom watch this video to make the wreath!

Learn how to make your own fancy basket made it out of you guessed it. Twine and cardboard! Twine is really amazing I made a chandelier out of one once. I am still working on some accent pieces for my guest bedroom and I need more storage solutions especially for the bathroom. I teamed up with Decoart to show you how to create a bathroom storage basket This is so easy to make the only additional things you need is some hot glue and a pillowcase!

What you need:
Watch the video for the deets or look at the instructions.
1. Ensure the bottom of the cardboard box is secure. If necessary, add tape. Push the flaps of the box inside to create and open box.
2. Starting at the bottom of the box, apply a small amount of hot glue and attach the end of the twine. Carefully add lines of hot glue to box and attach the twine, working upwards. Continue to loop twine around the box until it’s a few inches away from the top.
4. Cuff a pillowcase halfway down or until you reached the desired size for the lining of your box. Line the box with the pillowcase, covering the exterior cardboard.
