Diy Holiday Tutorials from DesignSponge

Today I was perusing DesignSponge and found these gems…I will be doing both. I’m excited. It’s freezing outside, so I’m enjoying and instant (gasp) cappachino. Perfect blend between hot chocolate and wih a slight coffee twinge. I also managed to score a blow out and some serious needed texurizing today!

Holiday Garland!!!

I love garland. There are always endless possibilities, and there’s nothing like enjoying the fruits of your labor once it’s strewn all over your house. I haven’t decided which one I will be making yet, too many to choose from.

Blending yours and your fiance’s style can be quite a task. A lot of it depends on compromise. Here’s one of those uber trendy deer heads everyone is scambling for. But instead of nailing an actual animal to your wall and to spare you getting the inflatable version that has swept the Urban Outfitters crowd, here is a cute one that both you and the FI can agree on.

D.I.Y.: Paper flowers put to good use

I don’t know if you’ve seen the D.I.Y. project involving some serious twigs and cute paper flowers, but I found the most awesome example of someone who really took it and made it their own. It just goes to show you, that just one D.I.Y. project can go a long way.

D.I.Y.: Fabric Boutonnieres

I love these fabric flower boutonnieres, mostly because I hate the idea of wasting so much money on expensive flowers that will basically die days later. These are a great alternative, you can customise the fabric to go with any theme.
