Easy St. Patricks Day Wreath

I love any excuse to decorate but admit that I am not a huge St. Patricks Day decorator. Maybe because it is so close to Easter and Easter is my favorite! Who knows but I knew my kids would get excited with a few decorations and since I didn’t want to spend a ton of money I headed to my favorite place… The Dollar Tree! Y’all, I just love it there!

I grabbed a grapevine wreath, 2 strands of St. Patricks Day garland and this green, glittery shamrock! $4 and I was out the door! Ok, that’s a lie. There were like 10 other things in my cart.


I knew I had floral wire at home and some ribbon that would be the finishing touch!

This is the easiest project ever! All I did was wrap the garland around the wreath. Two strands was enough but three would have made it even fuller. I tucked the ends of the garland through the wreath so I didn’t need to use hot glue.

With a piece of floral wire I attached the Shamrock to the top of the wreath. I added a gold bow and voila… an easy and inexpensive Saint Patrick’s Day wreath!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Happy creating,

My TJ Maxx favorites

TJ Maxx! Do your eyes light up when you drive by like mine do? It is definitely in my top 5 favorite stores so I thought I would share some of my TJ Maxx favorites!

 

TJ Maxx is my FAVORITE place for hair products! Especially this Chi heat protectant and the best hair spray ever!

If you haven’t tried Big Sexy Hair you need to. Like yesterday. Trust me. You won’t regret it!

I have heard rumors that it is also the best place for dry shampoo! I need to get into that. 4 kids=dry shampoo!

 

Mugs are totally my love language but let’s be honest. We go on a hunt for Rae Dunn.  It’s like a scavenger hunt for grown ups.

  Unfortunately, my Rae Dunn mug hunt wasn’t successful on this trip but I did find these goodies!

 

So cute, right? Next up. Paper products! I don’t know why they excite me but they do. Look at these unicorns!

 

How  stinkin’ cute are these? Totally adorable!

 

I am also a total pillow addict and TJ Maxx is the BEST place for name brand pillows. Period.

And let’s not forget throw pillows!

Tons and tons of pillows. Sort of like pillow heaven.

 

Hot pink. Kate Spade. Crazy soft blanket. Do I need to say anything else?

 

My last fav TJ Maxx find is platters! Give me all the white platters! They are perfect for every holiday and celebration and never go out of style!

 

I would love to know what your favorite TJ Maxx finds are! Happy shopping Maxinistas!

 

Hugs.

DIY Inspired Rae Dunn Eggs

I love all things Rae Dunn. Like really love it. But let’s be real, it is hard to find it. Unless you can spend your days stalking your closest TJ Max it just isn’t gonna happen. So, when thinking of how I was going to decorate my bar cart for spring I knew I needed some fillers and what would be better than Rae Dunn inspired Easter eggs!

And can we say easy! You need 2 supplies! Wooden eggs (I got mine at Michaels) and vinyl cut in The Skinny font. You can download the font for free at Dafont.

Once your vinyl is cut using your favorite cutting machine you are ready to label your eggs! They are perfect to nestle in among your spring and Easter decorations. Now, where else can I put these sweet little eggs?

Praying your day is blessed!

Pom Pom Love

I am a lover of all things pom pom so the idea to hot gluing them to a pillow case in the shape of a heart was a no brainer! Is it possible to look at a pillow full of pink pom poms and not smile? I mean seriously, I bet you can’t do it!

This project only required a few supplies:

  • pillow cover (mine is from Hobby Lobby)
  • hot glue gun
  • pom poms
  • pencil to draw your design

Before you start make sure you place something inside your pillow cover so you don’t glue the front to the back! A piece of paper works just fine!

After you sketch your design just start gluing! That’s it! Easy peasy and oh, so adorable!

No Sew Pillows

I really believe there is no such thing as to many throw pillows! My hubby totally disagrees! Since I know this is a battle I won’t win and because the cost of throw pillows is crazy high I have a sneaky little trick to make them quick and inexpensive!



Supplies:

Placemat (it has to be two pieces sewn together)

Seam ripper

Hot glue gun

Batting (or the Christmas snow that is on clearance right now)

Enjoy our FB live tutorial!

Happy pillow making,

Jessica
