Here are a few ideas for adding a touch of new decor into your home that are inexpensive and perfect for creating together as a family activity.
String bowl by Craft Tuts. What a simple idea for adding texture to your tabletop. Maybe even experiment with earth tone or bright colors of hemp string.
Painted baskets by Emma of The Marion House Book. The patterns on these baskets look so great and what an incredible way to give new life to a standard basket!
Milk Carton Planters by Camilla of Family Chic. These look like such an easy sustainable planter project to freshen up your nest and would also make a great gift.
enjoy your monday!

Super great way to recycle a paper bag and some colorful paper scraps. I’m excited to see how these ideas are translated here at our house.

Share the gift of flowers on this first week of May with this modern DIY flower vase by Laura Parke made by wrapping twine and colored yarn around a glass jar and adding coordinating florals. This would also make a great Mother’s Day treat too! For the one I made for a special friend today I did not cover the entire jar with twine. I wrapped the jar with twine in two different places and attached just the ends to the jar with glue, then added a few wraps of colored yarn. Such a simple way to add a modern touch to a glass jar.
Another great idea for a simple vase is reusing tins or unique soda cans like these from A Creative Mint (via creature comforts blog).
Happy May Day!!
