This is an easy Do-It-Yourself project to brighten up those winter blues and a great way to repurpose those old mason jars. You the ones you have in your pantry and have been trying to figure out what to do with them. This home decor DIY takes less than 5 minutes and it's addicting. You're gonna want to wrap everything in copper wire. Just saying.
Instructions: Wrap copper wire around the mason jar several times, as many time as you'd like to go around the jar and snip end with bolt cutter. The 8 gauge copper wire is somewhat flexible, but be sure to hold on to the glass as you are wrapping the copper around and molding it to the jar. Remember, when working with glass, be safe and take your time. I think this is the easiest DIY ever.

This is one of my favorite recipes to make during the holidays, fresh cranberry sauce with orange zest sand cinammon. Delish!
Fresh Cranberries (2x 12 oz bags)
1 cup of oranges juice
Zest of one orange plus juice
2 cinnamon sticks
1.5 cups of sugar
In a saucepan dissolve sugar in orange juice. Add cinammon sticks, fresh cranberries and zest and juice of one orange. Bring to boil then reduce heat to medium/low and simmer til the liquid is gone and craberry sauce thickens. Remove from heat. Refrigerate when cool.
I used these Oui yogurt jars and covered with parchment paper and twine to secure. Add a fresh sprig of rosemary. Set a jar of cranberry sauce on each place setting or deliver a few to a neighbor.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I love sharing easy DIYs to decorate your home for any holiday and this Halloween Yarn Garland is a simple and inexpensive one to make. Not to mention the kiddos love it!
This photo was from a surprise Fall Home Decor Makeover for a military family. Click here to see the full makeover.
There are two methods you can use to make these.
Repeat pumpkin steps to make the spiders, no leaves here, but use black pipe cleaners to make the legs. Attach legs to the bottom of the yarn with hot glue and cover with a round piece of black felt to keep the legs secure.
To string the yarn pumpkin, spiders and ghost on the jute cord tie a pieces of fishing line through the yarn and tie a knot making a large loop so they can hang on the cord.
Hope you enjoyed this nifty little craft.
This pegboard organizer is a fast and inexpensive DIY. It's a great way to personalize your nursery with what design style you may be going with.
Materials you'll need:
Pegboard (We had a brown one and painted it white)
10 foot 1 x 3 (Cut to the size you want. We had ours cut for us at a local home improvement store 2 x 40 inches and 2 x 16 inches)
Hanging baskets (These are from At Home)
Nail gun or hammer and nails (Ryobi)
Blue Chalk Paint
Cut pegboard to the size you want. Ours was 40 inches wide and 20 inches tall. Create a frame around the pegboard with 1 x 3 cut to size (width and height). Put wood glue on back of wood frame pieces, lay over top of peg board and nail in place.
