Any room in my house is home to anywhere between 5 and 10 houseplants. Many of them have names and many of them might be hiding a miniature little gold dinosaur peeking out from behind the foliage. I love adding small touches of whimsy throughout my home and felt these mushroom plant ornaments were the perfect addition.
While many people like to jump straight into Christmas decor the day after Halloween, I opt to savor the autumn season for a little longer. An ironic thing to claim with a foot of snow outside and a guest bedroom cluttered with Christmas crafts that I have planned for the blog in December.
So, as I remove the spooky spiders, bats, and toads from my Botanical Print Gallery, I’m adding some more harvest-themed prints in celebration of Thanksgiving. In addition to botanical illustrations, I’ve also included animals like turkeys and owls. Continue reading “Thanksgiving Botanical Gallery Update (plus free printables)”
Welp, Halloween is this week and you haven’t figured out your costume yet. You want something relevant and maybe a bit cheeky, that can get to your doorstep in 2 days and requires minimal effort. Don’t worry… I’ve got you covered.
I’m definitely not the first person to think of this, but when Pinterest showed me a botanical print of a mandrake on my feed, I felt obliged to update my botanical print gallery for Halloween. I may have already printed out some specifically for Thanksgiving as well. I also might be constantly brainstorming which prints I should try to find for Christmas. Poinsettias? Holly? Why not?
I didn’t swap out everything, but I pulled down some of the more colorful butterflies and flowers and replaced them with more witchy prints. Like toads and ravens and spiders. Keep scrolling for links to the free printables I found.
The holiday-themed DIY tutorials continue! Today, I’m showing you how to make a Pom Pom Garland.
I wanted to make my Christmas tree more cohesive with my existing living room decor. So, when I saw pom pom ornaments for sale at Target, I got inspired to create my own Pom Ornaments and Pom Garland to match my DIY Embroidered Throw Pillows.
Ornament Week may be over, but that doesn’t mean I’m done with holiday-themed DIY tutorials! Today, I’m showing you how to make a Hogwarts Tree Garland.
Last January, my favorite people joined me on a little trip to Universal Studios in Florida to celebrate my birthday.
Somewhere between swishing wands, sipping butterbeer, and riding roller coasters, I spotted this tree garland for sale. And I think it’s the perfect inspiration for my own DIY garland.
