Since we’re just a couple days away from the Christmas holiday, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite holiday DIY’s from my Pinterest page! The best part is they’re super easy to do!! I love getting crafty, but not if that project takes a year & a half! Like the holiday’s aren’t crazy enough.. Give me something short & sweet, which is why I loved these ideas so much!
Wishing you all the most Merry Christmas from the whole A.R.I. team!
Loved this idea!! Recycle old barrels into chic rustic vanity mirrors. Grace Mitchell from A Storied Style has a fabulous wine barrel mirror DIY that definitely deserves some checking out! Or if you prefer to skip the budget friendly way, check out a similar option HERE! Such a fun way to add depth & texture to a space!
I love stumbling upon innovative ways that some are able to take an item or element usually used for one purpose and create something completely unique! Ceiling medallions have been used forever as a decorative mount for many light fixtures and so when I saw how they were used below I had to share! The ways you can mix and match different sizes, shapes, designs and colors means the options are endless! For a more subtle and textured effect, paint your mounted medallions all the same shade of your primary wall color or opt for a bolder approach, like the first photo below, by painting them in monochromatic shades, creating a more artistic effect. Such a fun and easy way to spruce up a boring wall!
As promised on the show this morning, we have some pictures of how we created our geometric emerald placemat! We purchased our cream colored placemat from Target for a whopping $3. With a little blue masking tape placed in the pattern of your choice, just add your emerald green paint. Allow for dry time & then remove tape completely. Voila, you got yourself a fabulous pop of emerald at the table!
