Post image for Handmade Flower Holiday Cards

Is there anything more beautiful than that which occurs in nature? I truly think not. I’m always on the lookout for new ways to incorporate nature into my life, whether decorating my home, adorning my body, and everything in between. I recently came across a way to make prints from fresh flower petals (similar to these hammered leaf prints), and I love the idea of incorporating them into a homemade holiday card this season, as well as creating a card by attaching fresh flowers themselves!

Hammered flower prints is such a great idea! We used it at our event, and the guests were very happy! See the pictures here: http://fripefabrique.com/hammered-flower-stamping-diy-at-creative-picnic/

Post image for Holiday Tea Packaging

A homemade tea blend is such a lovely gift around the holidays. It’s the time of year when all we want do is be in a cozy place with the ones we love, feeling warm and cared for. Tea is a beautiful way to add to the atmosphere, and today I’m sharing a simple way to package homemade tea for the holidays: in test tubes! Read more »

Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.

This is so creative, such a cute packaging idea! For holiday gifts, I would probably fill the test tubes with hot chocolate mix, too!

Post image for DIY Test Tube Potpourri Holder

There’s something about test tubes that I’ve always loved. Maybe it’s their clean, simple shape; maybe it’s their natural cork tops; maybe it’s just the hidden science-lover in me… I finally got my hands on some, and wanted to come up with a unique way to use them. Read more »

saw something similar to this awhile back and have been wanting to do it myself. I finally will and will be using it (like the original product i saw) as a clever way to store daily vitamins for the week. though i'll be adding alterations to this design to make it mountable on the wall

Have the same love for glass test tubes. The piece looks nice, I just wonder how strong is the smell? I guess the stronger one would be from additional essential oils. www.greenipurple.blogspot.com

these are beautiful! I made them for my mom on Mothers Day and she absolutely LOVED them the only problem was that after a few days the color of the flowers started changing colors and now the stunning purple of the lavender has become a yellow color, so I'm going to try to make them again today and see if I can improve the result.
Caitlin Dohrenwend -May 27, 2014, 8:36PM
i tried making this with the dried lavender and it turned brown!! it looks terrible. any idea how to prevent it from turning brown SO quickly?

Now is the perfect time to start preparing your house for fall festivities, and with Halloween just around the corner, we wanted to share a few alternative ideas for decorating pumpkins and gourds! Read more »

All great ideas!
Arlene -Oct 23, 2013, 1:11AM
All three are very nice. When I yarn wrap my pumpkins, I hot-glue the beginning of the yarn only, then tuck it under at the end. When I'm done using it for decoration, just unwind and the yarn lives to become another project. I am so happy to have discovered your blog!

Post image for DIY Fall Garland

It may not be holiday season, but there’s no reason we can’t celebrate fall season by decorating our homes with garland. Today we’re talking about making garland from an autumn staple: pinecones. This is a really simple DIY that is best done sitting around a fire (whether outdoors or in), laughing with loved ones. Maybe you can even start it off by taking a walk with friends, collecting pinecones and any other bits of nature that have fallen to the ground this season. Read more »
