I have been so honored by the overwhelming support of my fellow bloggers! Since they have been so supportive of my DIY round up, it will now become my regular Monday feature. I hope you will continue to stop by on Mondays at 7 am to see next weeks featured bloggers.
This week I am featuring two projects geared to moms and two for anybody that loves DIY. I wish I would have thought to make a stroller snuggle sack, but my little ones are to grown now. Plus most of these projects would make a great gift!
I have been on a major DIY kick lately! You could probably tell by my Pinterest boards, because I have a lot of future DIY projects planned. So here are a few of my inspirations for this week from some very talented bloggers. Thanks so much to Giustina, Jennifer, Shirri, and Meredith for allowing me to share their projects and tips.
Please visit each blog for full instructions, and let them know how much you appreciate all their talent, and hard work that goes in to making amazing DIY projects. They would love some extra pins and comments!
DIY Antique Glass Insulator Coat Rack Shelf
Giustina from Domestically Blissful made this adorable coat rack using antique glass insulators with old coat rack she found at Goodwill for $2.99. I love the color of these glass insulators against the distressed white coat rack. You may have to search a little for some insulators, but it will be worth the effort. This project would be easy to complete with no more tools than a paint brush, sand paper, and my favorite glue E6000.
Giustina realized after spending a year crafting on almost a daily basis for her wedding, she felt like there was a big hole in her heart & a lot of empty space in their first apartment together. She knew if she wanted to start crafting again & make their apartment a home she would have to get creative since money is not something she like to spend frivolously (very fortunate for her hubby). Sharing craft ideas and projects on Domestically Blissful has really helped her focus on creating inexpensive decor for every season.[bctt tweet=”Update your boring coat rack with this fun project by @BlissfulMiller! #DIY “]
DIY Crochet Mug Cozy with FREE Pattern
Jennifer from Busy Being Jennifer friend was a few days from bring home their adopted son and was getting a little frazzled! So Jennifer decided to make her a gift basket to help her unwind a little and she included this cute mug with a hand crocheted cozy. How sweet was that! I personally do not know how to crochet yet (it’s on my bucket list), but I know a lot of my followers do. Jennifer included this pattern for free, and says they are quick to make plus addicting to make. This would make a great gift for a new mom or even teacher. I could see this stuffed with some Hersey Kisses and cellophane wrapped. It would make someones day!
Jennifer says she is a total craft addict, and blames it on her Nana. She had her trained in the art of “glue-gunning” by the time she was 5. Even though she used to be a city gal, she is now married to Texas cowboy and enjoying being herself in her new life.[bctt tweet=”Crochet your #Coffee mug its own cozy with this free pattern by @BusyBeingJenn. #DIY”]
DIY Newborn Shadow Boxes
Shirri from Barbee Dreamhouse hates having all newborn memorabilia just tucked away in a box. So she decided to make these cute shadow boxes to show off her little ones memorabilia. This will be an easy project with couple of shadow boxes from Hobby Lobby, scrapbook paper, and some washi tape. I really need to do this for my three kids. If you are expecting, remember to save all the memorabilia from the hospital. You will be glad you did later on.
Shirri is married to hardworking husband and even though they are complete opposites they have a wonderful marriage. She has two boys that are very precious to her. She likes to share on her blog inspirational postings, life stories, and cute DIY projects.[bctt tweet=”Don’t store your newborn memorabilia instead make this cute shadow box! #DIY #Momslife”]
DIY Stroller Snuggle Sack
Meredith from Barbee Dreamhouse little one loved his stroller walks, but hates getting cold and refuses to wear mittens. Meredith had seen one of these on Pinterest that she could buy, but they were sold out. So the DIY kicked in and she realized that this could not be so hard to make herself. So out came the sewing machine! I promise there is very little sewing involved. I love how this covers their little feet and they cannot kick it off or the wind blow it off.
Meredith was a former lawyer and ex-middle school teacher who became stay at home mama to two little ones. She talks about how they have fun, adventures in renovating a 1960s ranch, things they make and do, and how they make it as a little family on one income.[bctt tweet=”Don’t have to stop those stroller walks with a stroller sack by @barbeedreamhse #DIY #Momslife”]
