I have always loved decorating for holidays year-round. My mom used to have a cute little shelf in our kitchen, and with each holiday she had sweet little hand-painted wood decor pieces to display on the shelf. A little Christmas tree at Christmas time, a painted egg for Easter, a turkey for Thanksgiving, and so on. For the months of June and July I remember setting her sweet little American Flag on the shelf. It was such a nice little reminder of the upcoming holiday, and it kept my brother and I excited about each new season.
For Father’s Day this year I wanted to create something sentimental that my kids could create themselves. I have always loved reading the hilarious answers that our daughter gives when she has done questionnaires at school. It is so funny to hear children’s opinions and observations about their parents – they are usually brutally honest and hilarious at the same time 😉
Today I’ve got a super quick and easy craft to show you! I’m always amazed at how satisfying it is to create decor with very little time and money. This DIY Patriotic wreath is so easy and simple to make, and you literally only need two materials! Whaaat? No, it’s not too good to be true 😉
It’s no secret that I love a great budget-friendly, time-saving DIY home decor project. If I see a piece of art that I really want in our home and know that I can make it myself for less money and a little time – I usually try it. This lead to my latest creation. I used a super simple method to make a personalized hand-lettered canvas that turned out beautifully!
It is also week 2 of the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home and I have updates on what I have been working on for my modern farmhouse girl’s room makeover. I’ve purchased a few items for my daughter’s room and I’m so excited about how everything is coming together so far. If you follow me on Instagram you will be able to see some sneak peeks of my progress. You’ll definitely want to stick around for the next few weeks to see the reveal!
Easter is quickly approaching and I am so happy that Spring has arrived! It is so refreshing to see bright beautiful flowers in bloom. The nice weather gives me a spring in my step and I love to admire the signs of new life. This year I created an Easter banner to give us a reminder of why we celebrate Easter.
