♥ Apple Blossoms Made from Napkins!

That's right! These beautiful flowers are made from paper napkins! (You can use toilet paper too)

They are so easy (and cheap!!!) to make (considering the girls and I probably made around 300+ of them for my wedding!!!)

♥ Baby Headband Tutorial

A "Special Occasion" calls for a "Special Outfit", right?

My wonderful husband graduated Summa Cum Laude with a double major (it isn't bragging if it's true) last Sunday! YAY!

DIY Candle Pillars

I have always been in love with those beautiful candle pillars. But they are generally on the pricey side.
So I experimented and made my own!

DIY Dinosaur Tutorial

Meet Julie the Dinosaur. I asked my husband what we should name her, and he said Julie... so Julie she is!

Printing Paper Poms!

I am totally in love with my $55 Little Girl Playroom, and the icing on the cake for me was adding these printing paper party poms to June's teepee.

They are so super easy (and cheap!!!) to make. And despite all the hours I put into all of the other projects in the room, June's favorite thing is hands down these printing paper poofs. I was like, "Seriously? Those only took me 10 minutes to make!" Haha!

Aren't they so pretty? These came into being when my sisters and I were hosting a garden party. We wanted to make tissue paper poofs... but didn't have any tissue paper, only colored printing paper. I love the result even more than if it had been tissue- it's less flabby and will last for a long time!

DIY Dogwood Flowers

These are my dogwood flowers. I got branches that were just budding (for the realistic texture) cut some petals out of white printing paper, glued them to the stems!!!

DIY Decorative House Plant Out of Old Leaves

I gathered some tree branches and old dried oak leaves, cut the leaves into the shape I wanted them, glued them onto the branches, and displayed them in my beautiful trash bin
