When it comes to Halloween decorations the first images which come to mind are of giant spider webs, creepy skeletons, ugly witches and more fear-inducing paraphernalia. Some people go all out on the scary factor by incorporating dry ice for an eerie fog effect or play recordings of disturbing screams or ghoulish cackles. While I am all for this type of freaky décor, this year I’ve been in search of something a little different. Something, dare I say, more chic? Is it possible to do Halloween-chic? Turns out it is!
This DIY from Mr. Kate transforms pretty lace into ethereal looking ghosts. The hint of glam was exactly what I had in mind. These are going to look perfect in my new back yard!
I don’t think I’m the only girl who has a stash of jewelry that sits hidden somewhere and rarely if ever sees the light of day. These pieces weren’t necessarily expensive investments but they were purchased nonetheless because at the time, I figured I’d definitely don them at some point. I keep them around because for one, they’re pretty, and two, perhaps just maybe one day I’ll take them out for a twirl. Maybe. Maybe not.
If you love laughing, crafting and looking cute, Mr. Kate’s new book “A Hot Glue Gun Mess” will make you very happy! In her debut book (that came out yesterday!) Kate kills the do-it-yourself department. She gave me an exclusive look at the Found Objects Headboard and it was so good, I just had to share it with you! If you create this at home, you absolutely must post pics in the comments!
Hope you enjoy this as much as I did! xo Jules
Louise Roe is a bright and cheery television host, model, fashion journalist, author and apparently also a DIY master. I love how she identified a need and instead of going out to buy something, she hit up her local craft store and made it herself. How cool is that? Check out her cute at home idea, and for more inspiration pick up her newly-released book, Front Roe: How to Be the Leading Lady in Your Own Life.
Lately, I’ve become obsessed with DIY interior goods – monogramming, coffee table accents, pretty book shelves, and creating an art wall! I had been looking for an organizational container to toss my jewelry into (the pile keeps growing and doesn’t look cute), and needed some way of displaying everything to look chic. These leather squares that I DIY’d turned out to be exactly what I was looking for.
With it being Mother’s Day this weekend, I wanted to think outside the box when it came to a gift Mom will LOVE (and use!) and decided these pretty boxes would be perfect.
Check out the easy instructions below (and remember I suck at complicated DIY, so if I can do this, you guys can too…).
