It is now past Halloween which, to me, means that it's Christmas time! I know it is early for most people but not for me and this is my blog so I do what I want. And in honor of the Christmas season starting I decided to do a series of Pinsday posts all dedicated to Christmas DIYs and recipes. It's been a while since I've done a Pinsday post so I'm going to have it come back with vengeance.
My favorite part of Christmas time is (after spending time with family of course) decorating. So naturally, my first Christmas themed DIY was a room decoration.
I saw this and thought it was so cute! I'm more of a monogram person than a single letter person though so I took it one step further. Also just for reference, the link to this inspiration is an Etsy listing and not a tutorial but if you aren't very crafty then you can just buy one!
So my "B" was definitely inspired by the above pin but the "N" and "H" I came up with on my own. I'm pretty proud of how they turned out. The "N" is a little hard to tell but it is supposed to be an elf. I think my favorite part is the long ribbons with bows. Normally when I make wall hanging stuff I make the ribbons much shorter and don't add a bow but I think the long ribbon with the bow gives it a more elegant look.
These letters were super easy to make, the hardest part was cutting out the parts I glued on and putting the ribbon on and making sure it was tied at the same height. Easy! And I think they look super pretty on my door!
Happy crafting! xoxo Natalie
I just love making puns with the word Pinterest which is already not a real word and kind of a pun. So this post is my inspiration for my closest in my apartment next year. Last year my apartment had a walk-in closet which was absolute heaven. I am not so lucky this year (but I do get my own full size bath) so I have to get more creative with my closet storage. Naturally the first place I went to look for good ideas was Pinterest. I feel like everyone on Pinterest is a secret genius that uses their powers for good by being super crafty and good at cooking. So here are my favorite ideas for the outside of my closet which, as long as I keep my room clean, will be the part I see the most. Which is why I care so much.
Outside of closet
Inside of closet which is more organizational and less decorative will be coming soon! Doing these graphics takes me a lot of time.
How do you decorate your closet door/doors? xoxo Natalie
