Post image for DIY: Easy Peasy Decoupage Jar

Our December catalog has launched and inside its pages are beautiful decoupages of botanical flowers. The graphics bring life and feeling. They add a freshness to our winter day just by looking at them. So to go alongside our catalog’s decoupage theme, we thought we’d bring to life a DIY using decoupage itself with the graphics from the catalog. Read more »

Post image for DIY Photo Booth For Your NYE Party

I love photo booths. I loved photo booths back in 2011 when I made one for a New Year’s Eve party, I loved them in August when I wrote this décor crush post, I loved them the day I was born, and I love them right now. Read more »

I love how it came out. Especially the background, very creative. What kind of camera and lens did you use? I really enjoyed your post.

hi, so I want to make a photo booth for a party I am throwing, but I want to use my polaroid camera, how do you suggest I do so? Do I just put the camera in there and then people take selfles with it??

Post image for DIY Champagne Flutes For NYE!

I love New Year’s Eve.  I have definitely had some years when I didn’t feel that way, but now, it’s a great excuse to celebrate with your favorite people and just let loose and have a good time. I love thinking back on the past year and all that has happened, and I especially love the feeling of a whole new year stretched out before you like a blank piece of paper waiting to be filled with stories and adventures.  Read more »

Ashley - yes you can wash them, but I would recommend doing it by hand, not in the dishwasher :)

Molly - If you're able to avoid spraying the top portion of the glass they should be perfectly fine to drink from!

Post image for DIY Holiday Décor: Bottle Cap Birdcage

I’ve been in love with bird décor for quite some time. Cages, feathers, nests and little birds of all kinds have found their way into my home and they’re certainly not going anywhere. Read more »

Holidays in NYC can get pretty hectic.

Post image for DIY: How To Diamond Smock Your T-Shirt

UPDATE: This previously ran on October the 30th but as we know everyone likes to update their basic tee every once in a while we wanted to bring it back.

Smocking has always been a craft that has intrigued me, I love how it creates more depth and volume in flat fabrics and the pattern is so pretty when finished. Read more »

So we cut the string and tie a knot on each square with a line or do we sew through an entire row and then cut the string?
Meaghan -May 02, 2014, 8:31PM
It looks like the close-up picture (with the needle going through the fabric in the center row) is taken from a different project. The lines crossing through the middle of the squares is different. In the close-up, they're just dashes, but they're very precise in the other pictures. It just seems strange to me...

Post image for Guest Post: DIY Birdseed Bombs

This is a guest post from Johnie of

Going on a winter hike can be magical: the snow falling all around you, cozy mittens on your hands, hot cocoa in your thermos. But it can be disheartening to watch winter animals search for hard-to-find food. Give them a hand by mixing up a batch of birdseed bombs before you head out—tie them on trees or drop them behind you as you walk. Read more »

Colyn Bonynge -Jan 21, 2013, 7:02PM
I know, right? Have feeders everywhere & the wildlife that visit are astounding & daily put a smile on my heart. I make a varety of suets, serve corncobs & raw peanuts to the squirrels (I have a new addition--a WHITE squirrel; turns out there are several colonies here in FL), mix all my seed with different varieties & berries, even put mealworms out for the bluebirds. Even though I do incorporate fruit, I simply never thought of using it as a "dip". Thanks for a GREAT idea. By the way, I make my own peanut butter for the wild children. The Internet has a plethora of recipes ;)
Johnie Gall -Jan 15, 2013, 1:21PM
Hey guys, Sorry to cause so much drama! I doubled checked with a wildlife rehab center in my area after writing this and they said this practice is safe and harmless as long as you use all-natural ingredients (you should only buy all-natural peanut butter anyway!) and seed formulated for wild birds. Thanks for having so much concern for the critters! JG

Post image for DIY Embellished Figurines

Today’s DIY might be one of my favorites that I’ve done… I’m not sure why, but there is something so adorably sweet about these little embellished figurines. They can be used in so many ways, too… hang them on your tree as ornaments, wear them around your neck as a fun holiday necklace, place them around your home as decorations, or use them as gift toppers.

DIY: Photo Bunting

Post image for DIY: Photo Bunting

Bunting is a fun way to decorate for a party; it’s easy, pretty, and you can hang it anywhere you like. The other day here at Free People it was my sister’s Bridal Shower and for the occasion I made some bunting to hang delicately on the wall. The theme I used was “a couple in love” and printed out photos of her and her fiance throughout the years they have been together. Read more »

Post image for DIY Hammered Leaf Prints

UPDATE: This post originally ran on November 1st 2012 but we wanted to share it again while we still have some time left to take advantage of those beautiful fall leaves!

One of the best things about fall is without a doubt the gorgeous explosion of colors when the leaves turn.  The mixture of vibrant red, orange, yellow, and green is breathtaking and I hate that it’s always so fleeting. Read more »

Jennifer -Dec 30, 2012, 3:28PM
This is an amazing idea. There are so many different ways you can do leaf imprints, this one looks to be my favorite. The added bonus is everything you use is easily accessible in the home, its not messy and you can have your kids help you. I think canvas would be awesome to try this on and then frame it for a nice seasonal piece.
michelle -Nov 26, 2012, 5:58PM
look up 'hapazome' or india flint. flint came up with hapazome when she didn't have any materials to naturally dye with in japan on so much fabric. she ended up dyeing the fabric by hammering flowers and leaves.
