I love the colors and textures of fall. I can’t have enough fall decor in my life!  Today’s DIY fall decor project is a smaller sized canvas, just 8″ x 8″, but it packs a big decorative punch!

A Home for the Birds ::: DIY Birdhouse City

DIY-Birdhouse-City-Crafts-Unleashed

After creating the little Gingerbread House Nightlight for Christmas in July, I was hooked on the meditative painting of little birdhouses.  I decided to use my gingerbread house as the jumping off point and create a whole DIY birdhouse city. Consumer Crafts has a whole line of adorable little wooden crafts and a variety of little birdhouses in particular.  I chose my favorites, but you should check out the whole selection HERE.  If you are looking for houses in particular {Read More}

DIY Hanging Planter

Polka-Dot-Hanging-Planter-749x1000

I will confess that I don’t have much a green thumb. Ok, it’s kind of blackish. I tend to kill the living green things. But despite that, I love the way flowers and pretty plants look, especially around the front of the house. I have been loving seeing the return of retro hanging planters, and I thought that a DIY hanging planter would be such a great way to dress up the front porch of our new house! I made up {Read More}

Summery DIY Bandana Bunting

DIY-bandana-bunting-Crafts-Unleashed

I just love making up easy and cute banners for parties or even just for everyday! They are so fast to sew up and add such fun colors and style to any display, mantel or even to your backyard fence. Bandanas are so summery to me, so I thought it would be fun to make up a summery DIY bandana bunting – in these cheery, bright colors and all decorated with a little pom pom trim. Because everything is cuter with pom poms. {Read More}

DIY Gingerbread House & Birdhouse In One

DIY-gingerbread-house-birdhouse-Crafts-Unleashed

I love this little DIY gingerbread house project for Christmas in July because it works now as a birdhouse AND it works later as a darling little flickering nightlight for Christmas.  I plan to do a whole little bird city with all the houses Consumer Crafts has available (See them all HERE).  Wouldn’t it be fun to have a birdhouse painting party with a bunch of friends or neighborhood children? It is a wonderful way to get out of the {Read More}

You may think it’s nutty to start thinking about Christmas in July. But I think it’s genius.

Turning these lanterns into Christmas lighting with DIY vinyl decals was ridiculously easy. And these are the kinds of crafts that can be so rewarding. Five minutes, {Read More}

Christmas in July: Homemade Advent Calendar

Homemade-advent-calendar-Crafts-Unleashed

Happy Christmas…in July! Actual Christmas will be here before we know it and one thing I’ve always wanted to do was to have an advent calendar for my family.  My children love counting down til Christmas (or any holiday) and I have never been able to bring myself to buy an expensive advent calendar.  So we typically either have a cheap one filled with cheap chocolate or do nothing.  So this year I wanted to get ahead of the game, {Read More}
