DIY Home Decor Letters

So yesterday I showed you guys my St. Patrick’s Day themed kitchen décor. Well today I’m showing you one of the craft projects from the makeover, my torn scrapbook paper home decor letter.

You only need a few supplies for this easy project:

  • Paper mache letter
  • Mod Podge
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Foam or paint brush

You really can’t go wrong. If you don’t like a piece that’s glued down, take another piece of scrap paper and cover it up!

Nice and easy, plus doesn’t cost a lot of money!

Spring Staircase Garland

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

After I took down my Christmas decorations in our family room I felt that the space was a little bare. During the holidays I have so much packed into that small space, and come January when I remove all the décor it just seems bland.

I grabbed 4 bunches of fake flowers and (6) hanging birds for $1 each.

And the birds only cost me $6 total to add.
