I love Ellies!!!

Happy Sunday!  I love this craft because you can definitely make it your own!  It’s a simple little mason jar craft!
What you’ll need:
 -Mason Jar
-Animal (I chose an Elephant)
-Paint (I used spray paint and acrilic)
-Ribbon
-Glue
 
I started this craft by spray painting the elephant and lid of the mason jar.  I found the perfect sized animals at Michael’s in the children’s toy isle.  Once everything was dry, I first glued the two lid pieces together and then glued the elephant to the lid.  I painted the mason jar with Martha Stewart pearl paint.  To polish off the jar, I tied a ribbon around the neck!  I have no clue what I’m going to put in the jar, but I love it!  I was thinking it would be great for hair ties and pins!  Hope y’all enjoyed! 

Personalized Gifting!

Hello y’all! For those of you who don’t already know, I’m also a Scentsy consultant!  Today I’m sharing a quick DIY using a Scentsy warmer called “Charmer.”  I needed a gift last Christmas for someone who loves flip flops.  I couldn’t think of what to get her, knowing that she is gifted a lot of flip flop stuff and this idea popped into my head!  I found someone on Etsy that makes flip flop decals.  Once I completed the flip flop warmer, I really wanted one myself!  I ordered my monogram from the same Etsy shop and made my own!  They both turned out really pretty!  This is a great idea if you’re looking for something personalize this holiday season!!!

Luminaries

Hello! I figured after two days of decor posts, I’d feature a craft today! 
What you’ll need for the wine bottle craft:
-Epson Salt
-Ribbon
-Wine bottle
-Battery operated lights (recommend finding ones with a timer)
-Mod Podge Spray
What you’ll need for the mason jar craft:
-Mason jar
-Seashells
-Glass pebbles 
-Battery operated lights (recommend finding ones with a timer)
-Twine

For the wine bottle craft: Remove all labels, I soak the bottle in warm water and use a Brillo pad to scrub away and residue.  Once the bottle dries, spray with Mod Podge and immediately roll into Epson salt.  I poured the Epson salt on a paper plate to make it easier to roll.  I then stuffed the lights down into the bottle.  Once you let the bottle sit for a little while, the salt and Mod Podge will set and the salt will hold.  I added a little ribbon at the top.  The lights came with a battery pack and it has three different settings.  This piece didn’t fit inside the bottle, so I have it tucked behind the bottle and you can’t actually see it!  I found a very inexpensive set of lights at Walmart for this craft.  I believe they were only $5.  Only downside is that the wiring is actually green, you can’t tell in this craft, but if you’re using clear glass you would be able to see. 

For the mason jar craft: I filled the bottom of the mason jar with the desired amount glass pebbles.  I strategically placed the shells around the inside of the glass, using the glass pebbles to hold them in place.  Using twine, I tied a bow around the top of the jar.  I unraveled the strand of lights and added to the jar.  This strand of lights also has a battery pack that didn’t fit into the glass jar, so it’s sitting behind the jar.  It also came with three settings.  The only downside to this set of lights was the price, I paid about $12 for this strand from Michael’s.  I liked the silver wiring on this strand for this craft.  I have both luminaries set on a timer. 

I’m very pleased with how both luminaries turned out!  Have you made any luminaries of your own? 

Happy Fall Y’all!!!

Fall is one of my favorite seasons!  Yesterday I gave you a peek into my living room decor and today I thought it would be fun to show you my fall decorations!  I typically update decorations from season to season.  I’m really getting excited for Christmas and I don’t think I can wait much longer to decorate my house!  I had to get these photos taken asap! 
I bargain shop for seasonal decor.  Above you’ll notice two votive candle holders, I purchased those from the dollar store and I use battery operated tea lights in them.  A few pieces were purchased from the dollar buys section in Target and the others were gifts.
I always go to Michael’s or Kirkland’s, especially at the end of the season!  I find things on sale and save them for the next season!  It helps save me a lot of money and allows my seasonal decorations to build up slowly each year.
My aunt gives me throw blankets as gifts and they always work perfect to add a festive feel to my living room!  A cozy kitty also makes for great decor too! haha!
Pumpkins are the best part of Fall decor!  The pumpkin candy dish was one of my first fall decorations.  This year, I received the teal pumpkins as a gift.  I also received the black pumpkin in this photo and the orange pumpkin in the first photo as a gift.  They came with gem decals and turned out awesome! 
The pumpkin warmer featured above is from Scentsy and is by far my favorite warmer!  It’s currently warming Baked Apple Pie, for a nice warm and spiced aroma!

Beachy Decor

Hello!  As many of you know, my living room has a relaxing beachy theme.  Today I’m featuring photos from my old townhouse to show a little insight to my crafting decor inspirations. These photos aren’t “picture perfect” and I probably should have tidied up beforehand, but I still wanted to share!
