T-Shirt Re-Fashion

This is a terrible picture for showing detail of what I even changed. I found all kinds of T-shirts at a store down the road from me for $1 each! So I bought a couple of a few of them. And when I came across this tutorial, I whipped one up during drive time on the way to Dayton last weekend. It turned out well, but I think I'll still add a few more flowers.

Vintage Rose Wrap Belt

I was too lazy to make Bexley a rockin' 4th of July dress this year, so I used Kiki's idea for the rose wrap belt and added it to a denim dress. So easy and SO cute!!!

Rag Wreaths

These are the simplest wreaths and another great project to do while driving or watching tv.
Go here for a tutorial!
I found these wreath forms at the dollar store. Basically all you do is tie strips of fabric all the way around.

Redecorating Part V - Lampshades

Bexley's room needed a little simple re-doing of it's own, so when I saw this lampshade on pinterest (oh how I am addicted to pinterest), I made one for her. I used paper instead, because I'm lazy and would have rather used a paper punch instead of cutting fabric for days (someday I will own a silhouette).

And I am obsessed with these coffee filter lampshades! I did mine in a more straight-lines-all-the-way-around pattern, but either way, they are so fluffy and fun! Now I just have to get to our new home so I can spray paint the bases, I'm thinking yellow or grey...

The before picture, can you see it all the way in the back corner?

His and mine...they did take FOREVER and he is not so fond of how careful he thinks he has to be it with it now, but he deals with it because I love them!

Redecorating Part IV

I got this cute cake stand for $7, but thought it was too cute to put away until I had a cake to display on it. So I'd seen someone use wiffle balls for decor, covered in mod podged scrapbook paper. I found 6 balls for $1 and covered half with twine and the other half with the leftover leaves from the vase of yellow flowers.

Redecorating Part III

Since I got rid of the vase of flowers on our dresser, I needed something to replace them. Have you seen all the great dollar store supply ideas on craft blogs lately?! They are fantastic! I already had the large cylinder vase, then bought two smaller ones and candle sticks at the dollar store, added some rocks and flowers I had on hand and here it is.

I think I'll change out the rocks and flowers once we move, but for now I was just using what I had.

Redecorating Part II

Turning these...
Into this...
I am loving all the white in decor these days and happened to have a glass vase, did you know you can spray paint practically anything?!
