DIY Yarn Wall Hanging

So, upon seeing countless boho style wall hangings on Pinterest, I decided I’d take a go at it myself. They all looked like they’d be very inexpensive and easy to make. And most of them utilized my favorite material from the backyard…a tree branch! lol For this project, I took inspiration from The Good Time Home Store Blog. What you’ll need: – yarn of your choice -a cool looking tree branch -scissors -ruler (optional) What you do: 1. Cut yarn into long pieces, all about the same size (you will cut them down to your desired length later) 2. Once they are all cut, tie them to the branch by folding the yarn in half and then looping it around the branch and through the hole. (like in the picture above) 3. Hang them all in your desired order. 4. After you are done tying all the yarn pieces to the…

DIY Photo Hanging Idea

Today’s DIY post is inspired by my love for boho and rustic style. It’s quick, easy and very cheap! What you need: -Tree branch(es) -Yarn (white or black looks best in my opinion, but you can do whatever color your heart desires) -Photos (I got mine printed from Walmart.com they are 3×3 squares, and I love them!) -White string, or fishing line, whatever is available -Scissors -Mini clothes pins White string not pictured.

Lay out yarn according to where you want to tie it on the branch, then tie a knot on each side. 3. Figure out where the middle of the yarn is and start pinning the photos from there. Then pin each photo in alternating sides of the middle…

How to Make a Paper Garland For a Photoshoot

I’m excited to share this post with you as I love making things with paper, I do it a lot!  My love for paper began when I got a job working for a stationery design company and had to make a lot of things by hand. Over the past few years, I’ve learned it’s a lot easier and cheaper to make certain things yourself rather than to buy them! In this post I’ll show you how to make a paper garland that you would pay more than $5 for at a store (for even the simplest one). But before I show you, I want to tell you a little bit about birthday celebrations in my house (because this garland was obviously made for a birthday). Birthdays were never a big deal in my family. Our celebration was my mother making our favorite foods at home and us eating together as a family. There were…
