Here's a super easy project that you can customize for your color scheme; yarn wrapped balls.
Glue Gun or Glue Dots
Styrofoam balls in desired sizes
1.) Glue one end of your yarn to the Styrofoam ball.
2.) Wrap and wrap until it's all covered and looks pretty.
3.) Cut the yarn and glue the other end down.
Yup, easy as 1-2-3. A cool DIY design project done in 20 minutes.
This would be a great housewarming or hostess gift! Easy, cheap, fast and made to co-ordinate with their decor!

My house is pretty little, and I'm starting to learn how to make the most of my nooks and crannies! Here's a little spot on the stairs that I created in less than 30 minutes with chalkboard stickers and vintage flash cards.
To string up my vintage Sesame Street flashcards I just tied string onto cute push pins and stuck them in the wall. If they're too loose, they droop a lot, so pull the string tight! I used a flat white tack in the corner so it was less noticeable (although I took the photos before I changed them out). I found some sweet mini clothespins to attach the cards with, although binder clips or even paper clips would work too.
I'm still looking for some way to store the chalk on the wall, so for now, we're using a mason jar to hold the chalk and the brush.
More redesigned nooks and crannies to follow soon!
