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
Happy first day of Fall! I always get excited about the beginning of Fall because of pumpkin carving, leaves turning colors, pumpkin spice lattes, Halloween, apple flavored things, football, cozy sweaters, you know all that fun stuff. In reality I think Fall is a lot lamer than it is in concept but for now I'll be excited.
One thing I absolutely hands down love about Fall though is the fashion. Layering is in it's prime, scarves, ankle boots, it's all great. So here is some of my Fall style inspiration courtesy of Pinterest.
Whats your favorite Fall look?
