Fall Wreath Farmhouse Style

Fall Wreath Farmhouse Style

Create your own easy fall wreath with farmhouse flair.

Make a beautiful fall wreath in 10 minutes or less!
I love decorating for fall. Fall is my favorite season! Today I'm sharing a beautiful farmhouse style fall wreath you can easily make in 10 minutes. This is a perfect craft for beginners!

Thank you to Hobby Lobby for sponsoring this post. Y'all know how much I adore that place.

Side note: I told my friend I was heading to Hobby Lobby.

She said, "Oh, that's a dangerous place."

My reply? "Danger is my middle name!"

Olive Bucket Wall Hanging Turned into a Fall Wreath

I went looking specifically for supplies to make a wreath and found the prettiest mustard yellow fluff balls. That's the technical name, you know. Actually, their website calls them a Yellow Pom Pom Bush. So there you go. I ended up using four bunches of them.

Then I found a galvanized metal olive wall bucket and knew it was a match made in heaven. After the galvanized metal tire wreath was such a hit, I knew another door hanging with a galvanized metal element would be right up my alley.

The only other supplies I used were a pair of tin snips and a leftover bit of craft foam to anchor flowers in place.

Want to see how easy it is to make this wreath? It's literally a two step deal. Two steps. Even if you are not crafty at all, you can handle this! Promise!

Step 1: Cut the stems apart just above the base where they join together.

Step 2: Attach the foam to the bottom of the olive bucket with a dab of hot glue, then fill the bucket with the stems. You'll end up with this:

Beautiful and simple door hanging you can make yourself!

It's fall farmhouse perfection, don't you think?! And it was so simple to put together!

I just love the texture of those little pom poms. They look like the center of flowers after the petals have fallen off.

But guess what? It gets better. You can easily use this wreath all year just by switching out what you fill it with. I may have stacked my entire cart with silk flowers just so I could show you all of the cute ways you can style this olive bucket. My front door is going to look good ALL. YEAR. LONG.

Could you die? I love them all so much I can't even pick a favorite. But maybe it's the heads of cabbage. That one is pretty stinkin' cute. Which one do you love?

Rainbow Macrame Wall Hanging

Rainbow Macrame Wall Hanging

Rainbow colored yarn and giant paper flowers make up this cheerful macrame wall hanging.

This easy rainbow craft features a rainbow yarn macrame wall hanging topped with paper flower clouds.

Rainbow crafts are my favorite. What could be happier than a rainbow of yarn topped with paper flower clouds? I'm pretty sure the answer is nothing. This is one of the cheeriest crafts I may have ever made.

Want to make your very own rainbow wall hanging? You will need yarn in a rainbow of colors, a wooden dowel, twine or string, and a few white paper flowers (learn how to make giant paper flowers here).

Make a fun rainbow wall hanging out of cotton yarn

Step 1: Cut 12-15 pieces of yarn in each color. The pieces should be approximately 20 inches long, but it's really up to you and how big you want your final piece to be.

Easy macrame project in rainbow colors

Step 2: Fold each piece of yarn in half and attach it to the dowel with a Lark's Head Knot, like this:

How to tie the basic macrame knot

Continue attaching all of the yarn pieces to the dowel. Just make sure that you tie the knots the same direction so that you have a uniform look at the end.

How to attach yarn to the dowel

Step 3: Once all of the yarn is attached, you can choose to make more knots or leave it as is. It's up to you! Once you are happy with the way it looks, trim the ends. I made a slightly rounded shape along the bottom. It would be cute to do a sharp point or you could even cut a straight edge. Again, it's personal preference.

Trimming the ends of the string is the last step

Step 4: Add a string for hanging.

You could stop here and you'd have a pretty darling project.

Or you could whip up some paper flowers and take this craft to the next level of cuteness.

Boho rainbow wall hanging

I attached my flowers directly to the wall with push pins, but the velcro Command Strips would work well if you're concerned about making holes in the wall.

I hung my new decoration in my craft room on the wall next to my rainbow of paper flowers. It definitely fits right in and is going to make me smile for a long time to come.

Watermelon and Lemonade Summer Drink Station

Watermelon and Lemonade Summer Drink Station

Watermelon and lemonade themed party decorations will add a fun pop of color to your summer drink station.

Watermelon and lemonade themed party decorations will add a fun pop of color to your summer drink station.

Watermelons and lemonade... they just scream summer fun, don't you think? It's not too late in the season to host a party with neighbors or friends and these easy party ideas are sure to be a huge hit.

How to style a bar cart for a party

As part of the Wayfair Homemakers Program, this month I was challenged to style a bar cart. It was so fun to put together and I can't wait to show you all of the cuteness.

For the challenge, I chose this farmhouse style bar cart and I just love using it for parties. It's so nice to be able to set up a separate drink station. This particular bar car features wheels, so I can move it around depending on where we decide to par-tay. I love that it's white and very classic in design so that it will fit with almost any party theme I might pick in the future. Wayfair has a lot of awesome bar carts to choose from in every style and color you could wish for, so head over there and tell me which one you'd pick and how you'd style it.

Colorful fruit party theme idea with a DIY lemonade stand

This bar cart features a handle on one side and I can't tell you how nice it is to have a dish towel close at hand for any little spills that happen (and let's face it... there are ALWAYS spills at the drink station!)

I love that this bar cart has drawers so I have a secret little place to stash extra napkins, straws, treats, plates, etc. Shhh... don't tell my kids about the candy!

Use the drawers in a bar cart to stash paper goods and extra candy, etc.

My favorite part of this party setup might just be the cute little watermelon and lemon garland. I downloaded a $0.99 cut file from the Silhouette Design Store and used colored cardstock to create the fruit shapes. Each one is a full circle that I folded in half over baker's twine and glued together.

Look at that garland... stinkin' cute!

DIY Bar Cart Styling with a watermelon and lemon theme

I rummaged through my party stash and pulled out paper fans, balloons and paper lanterns and used the bottom tier of the cart purely for decoration. The extra pop of color really makes the drink table seem special and drives home the theme.

I also found some cute pink paper straws and green polka dot napkins. It's all about carrying the color scheme into as many different elements as possible.

Can we talk about these drinks for a minute? When I saw them in the store, I just had to buy them. The colors and flavors were too perfect!

Colorful party decorating ideas

I filled my drink dispenser with my favorite homemade lemonade recipe, but my fizzy watermelon spritzer recipe would have been the perfect drink to make for this party.

This party setup was easy to put together, but the cheery pops of color make a big statement. If you're looking for a perfect theme for your next summer party, it's watermelons and lemonade for the win!

DIY Ballerina Sign

DIY Ballerina Sign

This whimsical floral ballerina sign is an inexpensive craft you can easily make to decorate the walls of a little girls room or nursery.

This whimsical ballerina wall art is an easy and affordable craft you can make to decorate a little girls room.

Wall art can be so expensive at stores. That's why I like to make my own. I recently created this adorable ballerina themed art as a decoration for my girls' shared bedroom and just LOVE the way it turned out. If you'd like to craft one too, you can follow along with these step-by-step directions.

(Some affiliate links used)

Materials Needed: 

Step 1: Begin by painting a canvas or wood plaque with craft paint in the color of your choice. The color I used is DecoArt Turquoise. 

How to paint a ballerina sign

Step 2: Load vinyl onto your Silhouette cutting mat.

Ballerina Craft Using Vinyl

Open the free cut file in Silhouette Design Studio and scale it to the right size to fit on your canvas or board. Change the cut settings to vinyl and cut.

Free ballerina cut file

Step 4: Transfer the ballerina shape to the sign. Make sure the paint is completely dry before adding the vinyl or it won't stick very well.

Step 5: Remove the silk flowers from their stems and glue them onto the sign to create the ballerina's skirt. I arranged my flowers first to make sure I liked the way they looked, then I glued them in place.

And that's all it takes to create this cute ballerina sign!

Create a ballerina sign using craft vinyl and silk flowers

Here are five variations of this project that would also be fun to try:
  1. Use silk leaves to make the skirt of the ballerina.
  2. Create several different ballerina signs in different colors to make a gallery wall.
  3. Use tulle to create a fabric skirt for the ballerina.
  4. Make rolled paper flowers for the skirt instead of using silk flowers.
  5. Scale the ballerina larger so just her skirt and feet are showing on the canvas.

She's Got Grit Free Printable

She's Got Grit Free Printable

I've got a fun printable to share with you today... and it's free!

Life has been exhausting for me lately. We're trying so hard to finish up our massive kitchen remodel, I work on this little ol' blog like a lot, and it's summer... which means the kids are home 24/7 and we have a never-ending stream of family reunions, picnics, camping trips, and baseball games. Don't get me wrong. I love my life! But it is exhausting. I. AM. SO. TIRED.

That's why I made this print. I needed the reminder that I can do hard things. I'm not perfect, but I've got grit and I'm going to keep on keepin' on. As a mother, as a business woman, as a creator.

And I know I'm not the only one out there who feels this way. So go ahead, download it and enjoy!

This is my little gift to you, my dear online friends, to say thank you for reading my blog, for leaving me comments that cheer me on, and for inspiring me to keep creating and working toward my goals.

The image is set to print in an 8 x 10" format, but you could adjust it directly in your print settings or in a photo editing program like PicMonkey or Photoshop.
