Patchwork DIY Headboard

This sweet DIY headboard caught my attention. Like a patchwork quilt, this design blends simplicity and country charm with a vintage flair. You could choose any type and pattern of fabric you want and create some of these for different seasons of the year. Simply change them out. Achieve a bedroom makeover in minutes! Totally love this look.

Beach-Theme-DIY-Headboard

For those of us who love the beach, this beach theme bedroom idea using a lovely homemade headboard decorated with attractive string lights is the perfect way to cozy up your nest. This creation was made from wood planks which can be screwed into a wooden backing such as plywood or firmly affixed with wood glue. Hang it up with some sturdy hooks on your wall and string up some lights of your choice. A fairly practical design turns an ordinary bed into a beach cottage dream.

Barn-Door-DIY-Headboard

I love Molly’s simple yet lovely bedroom. Notice her barn door headboard? She did not share a tutorial on this however my best guess is to get yourself a barn door, paint it, sand it down or finish it any way you want. You could add side pieces of wood, a top, maybe a shelf, and fashion it to your liking then watch it reveal its own perfect country style. What a crafty and inspiring idea.

Little-Girls-DIY-Headboard

Maybe you need a cute little personalized bedroom update for your daughter. Most little girls would adore this easy idea. Get some wooden planks somewhere such as Lowe’s or Home Depot, stain them or paint them and after adding her name to the boards, screw them into the wall one by one and you have a nice and sturdy headboard for your little girl. I think it is adorable!

Do you have a headboard idea you would like to share? If so please let me know, we would all love to see it!

Pine Cone Wreath

Pine Cone Wreath

I love a nice pine cone wreath and with fall just around the corner I knew I needed to start thinking about some ways to really give my front door a personality befitting of the autumn season.

Of course pine cones are used in Christmas decorations but never underestimate the power of this rustic beauty during the colorful months of autumn.

pine cone wreath

Pine Cone WreathA foam wreath will just not hold the weight of pine cones nor will it properly keep its shape so I decided upon a grapevine wreath. It will not only hold the weight of the cones but it will also blend well if there are a few little spaces here and there that may show gaps. My favorite is Cinnamon scented cones. About 2 bags of these delightfully smelling mini cones will do the trick.Pine Cone Wreath DIYA glue gun is a must have for this project. I started filling in the middle row around the wreath with the larger sized pine cones gluing them along firmly as I went. Next, I used the smaller sized cones to fill in the tops and bottoms of the wreath.

Pine Cone WreathAfter filling my grapevine wreath with all of the cones and adorning it with a pretty green ribbon, it is ready to bring some sweet charm to my door. I love it!

So begins my little love affair with pine cone wreaths. I started seeking out some other creative designs to add to my wish list and you will be amazed at what I found.
