Luci’s Bedroom Reveal {part 2}

Hi there friends!
Are you ready to see a little bit more of my daughter’s bedroom makeover? 
Today I am going to share the wall decor with you. Most of it was handmade or upcycled in some way. 
As I mentioned in part 1 of this bedroom reveal, I’ve been collecting and creating pieces for this makeover for over 2 years and almost 90% of the room is DIY. 
In part 1 of the bedroom reveal, I shared the window wall with you…
If you missed this details on this part of the room, you can check it out HERE
Hanging near the window on the left is this Scrappy Butterfly Mobile I made…
and you can find the how to HERE.
On the opposite side of the room, we put up shelving to display photos and decor.
Let’s take a closer look…
The shelves were spray painted along with the pink watering can and large pink frame. The Mrs. Potts tea set was given to me for my 8th birthday from my aunt…and I passed them on to Luci.
Here’s the wall next to my daughter’s closet…
I LOVE this arrangement. 
You can find the tutorial on how I made the birdhouse hanging picture frames (on the left) HERE.
The chalkboard butterfly came from Target’s dollar spot and I spray painted to frames and “L” in ballet pink.
You can find the Daughter of a Heavenly Father print I designed HERE (there’s a boy version too).
And you can find the Royal Spirit Daughters print HERE.
Love this simple painted canvas…I just used tape, spray paint, Mod Podge, and glitter. 
The 3D butterflies are from Target. 
And if you notice on the right of this photo, there’s a sneak peek of my daughter’s loft bed my husband built. 
That’s all for now! 
How do you like the decor? 
It has that girly, shabby-chic appeal I love so much. 
Next I will be sharing the nitty-gritty on the vintage dresser makeover and the loft bed.
Stay tuned!

Luci’s Bedroom Reveal {Part 1}

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve gotten some sneak peeks of this LONG over due bedroom reveal. 
I have been collecting things for this room makeover for a little over 2 years. 
*GASP*
I am proud to say, however, that 90% of this room was DIY…my husband and I did everything from flooring, painting, furniture, decor, etc. I am also proud to say that this room makeover did NOT cost us an arm and a leg. 
There will be several blog posts to share the entire room reveal…there’s just too much prettiness to share in one blog post. 
Today I will be sharing the window wall. I call it this because this wall has two large windows that pretty much take up the entire wall. 
Are you ready for some pictures?? This is a picture-heavy post, so consider yourself warned.
 White frame and dark pink ‘L’ from Hobby Lobby
Lamp & lamp shade from Walmart
 Dance print found HERE

 Door knob from Hobby Lobby
Key and pink wire dress form from Michael’s
 I made all of the hoop art except for the mini…that cutie is from Vintage Sunshine.
 This beautiful dresser was given to us by our awesome neighbor who was moving.
I cleaned it up and changed the knobs…post to come. You’ll love the transformation.

 Pink rose glass knobs are from Hobby Lobby and the others are from Amazon.
Crate from JoAnn.
 The scrappy fabric garland was made by yours truly…I used the same fabric as the hoop art.
The pink blackout curtains are from Target.
What do you think so far, friends?
I’m in love. I often just stand in the center of my daughter’s bedroom and marvel that it’s finally complete. That everything I had dreamed up, is now right in front of me. That’s the best part of a DIY project, I think.
I will share more of Luci’s Bedroom Reveal this coming week, so be on the look out!
I can’t wait to show you more of her wall decor, the before and after of her vintage dresser, and her DIY loft bed.
Have a great weekend, friends!

DIY Scrappy Butterfly Mobile

Happy Hump Day!
I hope y’all are having a great week so far.  Today is extra special because it’s my husband’s birthday!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my best friend and favorite guy (and my DIY partner in crime)! We’re celebrating by going out to dinner…we love to celebrate with food. It’s how we roll.
Anyway…
 I’m still plugging away at my daughter’s room makeover every chance I have. Today I thought I would share a piece of decor I made for her bedroom that was simple and inexpensive. And it can be done in one nap time session. PERFECT craft. 
Here we go…
Supplies:
Embroidery hoop
Strips of fabric (4)
5-6 butterflies
Fishing line
All of the supplies can be purchased at any craft store. I spent $5-7 because I already had the fabric and the fishing line and the butterflies were $1 each. 
How-To:
Attach the butterflies to 10-14 inch pieces of fishing line.
Tie the opposite ends of the fishing line to the embroidery hoop, spacing the out appropriately.
Cut 4 strips of fabric about 2 inches wide and 12 inches long.
Knot the ends of the fabric to the embroidery hoop, spacing them out evenly as well.
Bunch the opposite ends of the fabric and tie in one knot. 
Pin to the ceiling. 
I love that this piece of decor looks handmade and I love the scrappy/shabby appeal it has.
This mobile is versatile ..it can be done with birds, owls, planes, fairies, boats….and the fabric can be different as well. Consider this piece of decor for a girl or boy. 
Thanks for stopping by today!
I’ll be back with an awesome GIVEAWAY from one of our amazing sponsors as well as more updates and projects from my daughter’s room makeover. 
Stay tuned friends!

Good morning!
As I’ve mentioned a few other times, I have been busy working on my daughter’s room makeover. I am so excited to finish it up and reveal it to you, friends!
The other day I was laying out the decor for her walls on her bedroom floor (I do that before hanging anything) and I decided I needed to make a print for one of the arrangements. I wanted something inspirational…something I want her to be reminded of daily. Here is what I came up with…
I just love the way it turned out.
What do you think?
I also created a boy version for all of you boy mommas out there…

Good morning and Happy Monday!

I have a fun and easy jewelry tutorial for you today. Pretty much if you know how to use glue, you can make these adorable Heart Earrings. What says Valentine’s more than hearts and jewelry? Okay maybe chocolate and flowers, but you get the idea *winks*

Apply a small amount of your heavy duty glue to the back of the earring post.
Gently push the earring post onto the back of the resin heart.
Repeat the process with all of your resin hearts.
Allow 24 hours for dry time.
Add the earrings to a cute tag or piece of card stock and then add on the backs to the earrings.
And that’s IT!
Can you even handle the easiness and cuteness??
Perfect for Valentine’s Day…or any other day for that matter!
I’ve decided to give 3 pairs of these cute Heart Earrings away to one lucky MFTM reader. Because I {heart} you!

Pedi Jar {gift idea}

I LOVE mason jar gifts. 
They are just so cute and so fun and when I ran across the idea of a Pedi Jar over at My Dream Sample Box, I knew I had to make some for my nieces. Want to know the coolest part…I purchased all items needed for the Pedi Jar at my local dollar store!
What you need:
Mason jar
cotton balls
nail polish
nail file
toe separator
nail clippers
cuticle pusher (no clue on the technical word)
glitter
lotion
scrubby
ribbon
1 pretty cupcake liner
Other options:
Nail decals, nail polish remover, nail scrub brush, Q-tips
To Make:
I added all of my “ingredients” to the jar (I even popped in a pair of the bow earrings from my shop) and put the circle part of the lid on top of the jar (not the outer ring yet). Then I laid the cupcake liner on top of the metal circle on the jar, and then added the outer ring of the lid. I wrapped some ribbon around the lid and PERFECTO!
I even added an “M” to the top of the lid for my niece’s name…love a personalized, handmade gift!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you are enjoying your weened with the ones you love.
Merry Christmas!

Girly Subway Art Halloween Tote

I hope you are having a great weekend so far, friends!
I’m stopping by today to share the Halloween tote I made for my daughter to trick-or-treat with this year. Since I bought her Halloween costume this year (*GASP*), I decided that the least I could do was fancy up her trick-or-treat tote!
 
 
My daughter is going to be Princess Aurora (aka: Sleeping Beauty) this year, so I wanted to make her tote girly and pretty. 
First, I designed my subway art image using my Silhouette program and fun fonts I found on dafont.com. Then I used my Silhouette to cut out the image on freezer paper, creating a freezer paper stencil. I then ironed the stencil onto the tote (shiny side down) and applied pink craft paint (Martha Stewart’s Camellia Pink and Pink Flamingo). After the paint was dry, I pealed away the freezer paper and added embellishments (glitter paint and rhinestones). So far so good, but it needed something else…
So I added glittery pink ribbon to the handles and a giant pink fabric bow to the top of the tote. Viola!
 
 
So cute right? 
I think Princess Aurora will look lovely carrying around her Girly Subway Art Halloween Tote!
 
Thanks for stopping by today!
 
And thanks to FashionArtProjects.com for the tote and to Plaid Crafts for the pretty paints!
 

Cowgirl Baby Shower

I LOVE to decorate and I LOVE babies and I LOVE a good party. So decorating for a baby shower is the PERFECT gig for me. 
When a family friend asked me to help her decorate her daughter’s baby shower, my creative wheels started turning. The momma-to-be owns a ranch and loves horses…the nursery for her baby girl is even decorated in a cowgirl theme. So I took that idea and ran with it!
Bandanas, bails of hay, rope, burlap, mason jars, daisies… are you as excited as I was??
I only had 5 days to get the shower together, so I got busy!
I used bandanas, rope, and burlap to make banners for the shower. I also tied bandana strips and rope around large mason jars and used them as vases. 
I had fun gift making as well. I made the sweet baby girl a freezer paper stencil onesie and a cute headband out of bandana. For the mother-to-be, I made a broach for her to wear at her shower. All of the guests who came to celebrate sweet baby Elisabeth were able to take home chocolate hats and boots that I made. (Thanks for the great idea Kassi!)
As the guests arrived, they signed a storybook for baby Elisabeth (cowgirl themed of course). 
We used mason jars for drink glasses and I even tied bandana tags to them so that the guests could write their name on their beverage. Don’t you love the bandana monogram? I Mod Podged bandana paper to the wooden E and then added a burlap bow.
The mother-to-be’s best friend was there to help set up the decorations, which was a huge help.
My favorite part of the decorations that I made is that they can all be reused in the baby’s nursery. From the framed prints to the bandana banners and wooden signs, baby Elisabeth will have bits of the baby shower all around her room. LOVE that!
It was a beautiful shower and a beautiful day! I’m so glad I was able to be apart of the celebration!
Check out my little helper…
Just LOVE my baby girl.
Thanks for stopping by today! 
I hope you have a great weekend!

Tiny Dancer {printable}

Happy Monday!
 It’s the start to a new and busy week! 
Things I’m looking forward to this week: new homeschool activities and lessons to try out with Luci, our first field trip of the school year, the 2nd Craft Class (taught in my home), new shop products (fingers crossed), baking cupcakes with my preschool cooking class, and family date night!
What are you looking forward to this week?
If we’re friends on Instagram, you know I am still working on my daughter’s big girl room makeover. This past week I worked on art to decorate her room with. Today I want to share the Tiny Dancer print I made to sit inside a pretty frame on Luci’s new (to us) restored dresser (coming up in a later post). 

My daughter LOVES to dance and she LOVES music.
And if you know anything at all about me, you know that she is my mini. So this print was fun for me to make for her. I took a stroll down memory lane and choose words and phrases that related to dance and made pretty subway art with them.

Today I am sharing the print with you, friends! This would be a great gift to give at the next dance recital you attend, or for a little girl’s birthday, or even in your own daughter’s bedroom. 
Don’t you just LOVE the frame? Good ol’ Hobby Lobby for the win!

Click HERE to download the print.
The print is an 8×10 but can be resized smaller (the one pictured in the frame is a 5×7). For personal use only and please link back to MFTM if you decide to share it with others. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you have a wonderful week.
