This simple weathered sign tutorial is perfect for any season or saying. 
I created this one for Easter, with one of my favorite verses.

Weathered Sign Tutorial | Use this simple paint technique for a simple, weathered sign.
I will say, this tutorial is just an example of this technique. I love the way the paint turned out, but I honestly wish I had used a different font...this one seems just slightly on the trite side for a scripture of this magnitude. I was going for more of a handwritten look, but this feels like one wrung up the ladder from Comic Sans, y'all. But, I am happy with the technique and how well it aged this particular sign. I wanted it to look worn from the outside in and this seemed to have achieved this particular look.

I love tassels. And I love garlands. Why not marry them in a fun ombre pattern, right?
This little craft was really easy and I am pretty much in love with how it turned out. 
I have draped a few of these all over the house, y'all! 
Ombre Tassel Garland | Cute garlands that are easy to create using a self-striping yarn. Fun and simple photo tutorial.
I'm *slightly* obsessed with yarn crafts lately. I actually grew up with yarn crafts and they always hold a special spot in my heart (my great aunt had me making those plastic canvas tissue box covers by the truckload at an early age). This ombre tassel garland is my new obsession...I can't quit making them! Check out my complete tutorial below.

I just love a good tassel, y'all. For years, I used a piece of cardboard to make one, but I just recently found this cool acrylic template and I'm never going back to cardboard. Check out The Easiest Way to Make a Tassel!

The Easiest Way to Make a Tassel | Use this easy method to make fast (and pretty) work of tassels.
If you're reading this, there's a good chance you may have made a tassel with a cardboard template. The cardboard templates are good for about one or two uses, then they bend and have to be replaced. Sometimes cutting cardboard pieces for endless tassel-making can get old (because, I'm all about endless tassel-making, y'all). Check out how easy this nifty little tool I found is to use!

Upcycled Easter Door Decor

This Upcycled Easter Door Decor is one of the easiest thangs I've ever put together, y'all.
It's also a part of the Thrifty Style Team series this month.

Upcycled Easter Door Decor | Thrift store finds can make the perfect seasonal decor! This post is filled with lots of thrift store Easter ideas.
Every month, I'm fully aware that my monthly Thrifty Style Team series is coming...and *usually* I get behind and have to scramble to create something for the series (honestly, I do my best creating when I'm rushed, but it's still nice to actually be prepared every now and then). This month, I actually got it together. I grabbed the outer part of this wreath at a thrift store well before Valentine's day...and knew exactly what to use it for (don't you love it when that happens?). So, believe it or not...I was actually prepared this month! I have to say, this is probably the simplest tutorial I've ever done...it's like one step, y'all. Check it out below...along with lots of fun projects from my bloggy friends.
