While I didn’t make any resolutions for 2018, I have definitely been more focused on cleaning out and organizing everything I possibly can in our apartment. Along the way I have made a list of small DIY side projects for myself. In this post I will share the first of these – making a DIY picture frame. And then making a lot more. They were much easier than I anticipated, and I can’t wait to spread them out over the wall I have picked out for them!
Fall Wreath Tutorial
After a DISASTER of a summer wreath attempt, I decided to give it another go for the fall season. I’m glad I did, because I’m really enjoying this finished product! The options for decorating outdoors while living in an apartment are very limited (can’t obstruct any of the outdoor walkway areas), and I rely on wreaths to give our entrance some personality. This particular design incorporates flowers of the season, giving dahlias the spotlight with a few sunflowers for good measure. The gold ribbon gives it some subtle metallic shimmer to catch the eye and makes the otherwise bare areas of the wreath more interesting. Best of all, it only takes one trip to the craft store and roughly an hour to put together!
