We've talked about using paper decorations to punch up a last minute party , but there are ways that you can incorporate paper into your everyday décor as well. My favorite paper creations of late are tissue paper cherry blossoms, which are as pretty as they are easy to make. A few weeks ago I was charged with the task of decorating a ballroom for my daughter's school auction. The theme was cherry blossoms, and the result was magical…and budget friendly too! MATERIALS • Tree branches (branches with multiple off-shoots are best) • Tissue paper (A few sheets goes a long way.
I love the way the cherry trees outside my building bloom cheerfully each Spring. I wanted to bring the beauty of those cherry blossoms indoors so I made some out of tissue paper and to make them even more special I added LEDs These pretty lights are inexpensive and easy to make. They are made mostly from material found at a dollar store. You can make several branches for a spray of cherry blossoms to decorate your room.
A great way to add a touch of the fall season to your home is with a fall wreath! And a wreath is something that even the most novice DIYer could do quite easily. I’ve gathered 30 great D.I.Y. fall wreaths, ranging from really simple to some that are little more involved, that were created by some very talented and crafty bloggers.
Back in Los Angeles, any old coat rack or a few hooks by the door would do. Most of us would just toss a jacket in the back of the car in the winter months. But here in Vermont we need a little more. Many of the vernacular farm houses I visit have at least a half dozen hooks per person lined up in their mud rooms. My wife and I each will have several different coats, jackets and vests in play all winter long. Add to that assorted scarves, hats and gloves, several of each for both of us, and your average coat rack doesn’t stand a chance.
