Fast & Easy Floral Wreath

Image
Isn’t it funny how life never seems to go as planned? I filmed this “Fast and Easy Floral Wreath” tutorial right before Valentine's Day. I thought it would be a fun craft for a girl’s night. But then I couldn’t bring myself to publish the video.
I was too embarrassed. The camera kept struggling to focus. The audio wasn’t consistent. I convinced myself nobody cared to see what I had worked so hard on.
Then one day I came home from work and was face-to-face with my creation; literally. It was hanging on my door in all it’s floral glory. And if it was good enough for our home, I decided, it most certainly was good enough for YouTube.
So I hit publish and shared the link on my Instagram page. I waited for the negative feedback telling myself it would only make me stronger. However, what I received were the sweetest comments and direct messages. People actually liked it. Two soon-to-be brides even told me it gave them new ideas for how they could create centerpieces for their weddings…

$30 Photo Backdrop

Image
Add a little color to your next party with this DIY photo backdrop.

I’m the type of girl who, if left to her own devices, would blow most of her party budget on d├ęcor. That’s because I believe ambience shapes our experience more than anything else. However, I realize most people rank food a little higher on the value scale than aesthetic. So I challenged myself to create a photo backdrop that wouldn’t break the bank.

All you need is a handful of supplies and a good podcast or audiobook to listen to and your wall will be insta-ready quicker than you can say “cheese”.



Supplies: ·      - Removable Vinyl (3-5 colors/shades work best) ·      - Scissors and/or a Square Hole Punch ·      - An Empty Wall

I found my vinyl at Michaels. Any brand will work, just make sure the package says removable. This will protect your wall and allow you to move the pieces a bit if you decide you don’t like their placement.
