Next up, I just had to share a beautiful DIY. Isn’t this repurposed antique wooden just lovely? You know I am a big fan of decoupage. Decoupage paper was used with a pretty cottage feel. There are so many things you can do with decoupage. See how I used napkins to decoupage an old canvas HERE and make a pretty wreath HERE.

My Secret Crafty Crushes

This DIY jean foot stool project includes a very simple and affordable tutorial, and the best part is, it doesn’t have to involve any sewing! Especially if you use a repurposed fabric, such as an old pair of jeans. If you don’t have any old jeans to repurpose, you can pick some up at thrift stores for cheap. I found a bunch that I used to make an adorable jean pocket banner.

These planters are a modern take on a traditional urn shape, with the bonus of being zero-waste, as they were made from recycled plastic protein powder containers. How cool is that? Check in your pantry to see if you have any containers you can use to make these. I love to use unusual household items as planters. Did you see my upcycled vintage hanging colander planter?

Foodie Crush of the Week

Strawberry season is a great time to make scrumptious desserts. This no bake strawberry cream pie looks amazing! It’s a perfect dessert to bring to a summer barbecue too. If you are looking for another decadent dessert check out my Chocolate Zucchini Cake.
