After seeing an adorable Christmas Ornament wreath on Pinterest, we knew we had to try to make them.

My partner in crime (and crafting) Megan and I had serious discussions about different techniques for making the ornament wreath, and finally settled on hot gluing them to a foam base, as outlined here. (Another popular method involves a wire hanger, but we have a firm stance against those

We used foam wreath bases that were wrapped in burlap. I think it made the hot glue stick better. Our bases conveniently had a hook ribbons so we didnt have to tie one on before we started. Tthe final product was significantly larger than expected. Its important to have some smaller ornaments to fill in gaps, I also used jingle bells from Michael’s that happened to match perfectly to accomplish this. (Pro tip: Do NOT go to Michael’s the day after black Friday.) 

70: Ornaments used for my wreath alone

11: Hot glue gun sticks used

1: times I burned myself with a hot glue gun

3: number of attempts it took to tie a ribbon bow that wasn’t sad looking

8: number of pieces of glitter I found in my eyebrows at the end of the day

As I’ve been settling into my new apartment, I’ve been realizing how bare the walls are. I’m completely determined to bring some color to my gray walls. Inspired by this Spectrum Mobile at the MOMA, I set to work to recreate a version for myself. 
It cost under $4.00 total and took about 10 minutes each to sew each strand. I love walking by and seeing them spinning around!

Chalk Headboard | Two Fly Chicks
If you’ve been umming and awing about wether or not to paint one of your walls with chalkboard paint, I think that this is a pretty convincing reason to do it! I just love that drawn headboard. The thing with the blackboard wall is that you can change it up as soon as you get bored with it - and the only cost is going to be for a box of chalk! And bonus: chalkbord pens. Have you seen them? They are truly awesome. I think I just talked myself into doing this. I’m so convincing!

I think this is beautiful in its own rustic manner, but I’m too lazy to do it.
Will someone please?
