DIY Tassel Key Chain

DIY Tassel Key Chain_Twine And Braids

I’m pretty sure tassels are in right now. Or at least I think they were when I first thought about trying out this project.  I can’t make any promises about the trends when you get around to reading this, but what I can promise is that this DIY tassel key chain is super cute & […]

How to Naturally Fill Your Home with Fall Scents

Fall Scent DIY_Twine And Braids

I think the best part of fall, besides everything, are the delicious scents that come along with the season.  That mixture of cinnamon and nutmeg, cloves and ginger are so homey and comforting – it’s a shame we limit them to just a few months.  Before the first leaf turns from green to red we […]

DIY Reed Diffuser

DIY Reed Diffuser_Twine and Braids

Erick and I love candles so we always have one or two going throughout the apartment [current fave]. But with them burning all the time, we run through them pretty quickly.  These DIY reed diffusers allow us to enjoy the fragrance without needing to pick up a new candle every other week (or remembering to blow […]

Grapefruit Sugar Scrub

Grapefruit Sugar Scrub_Twine And Braids

Truth: Sometimes I pick up products and materials for projects and never make them.  In this case it was an essential oil.  A while ago I went out in search of a citrusy essential oil with the game plan to recreate cooling towels the Bikram yoga studio I was attending at the time handed out […]

DIY Flour Sack Towels

DIY Tea Towels_Twine And Braids

My dishtowel drawer was overflowing, so naturally I needed to make more.  Our current kitchen is a good size for an apartment, but it mainly consists of cabinets and appliances – not much room to decorate.  That’s when I turn to my dishtowel drawer.  Kitchen linens are an easy way to add a pop of […]

Edible Spring Centerpiece

Edible Centerpiece_Twine And Braids

I’ve always had a soft spot for edible arrangements, I mean come on, they’re delicious.  But they aren’t always the most attractive choice for a centerpiece, plus they can get a bit pricey.  Simple solution?  Make one yourself! A few years ago my mom and I had attempted our first DIY edible arrangement and we […]

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs_Twine And Braids

The weather has been absolutely perfect over here on the East Coast this week and it has me feeling everything spring – open windows, soft florals, outdoor dining and of course, Easter.  Now, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I’m a sucker for any and every holiday tradition. (Need proof? See here, here, and here).  Dying […]

Supermarket Flowers

Supermarket Flowers_Twine And Braids

I LOVE having fresh flowers in my apartment.  It’s something Erick will never understand with his rationale of – “what’s the point? they’re just going to die.”  But, they make me happy.  Whether it’s a full vase of blooms or a small teacup with a single flower they’re guaranteed to brighten any room.  My favorite […]

DIY Candle Holders: Two Ways

Growing up my mom had window clings for every occasion; March had shamrocks, with April came the Easter eggs, and in February, of course, she had hearts.  Our home had four pane windows and french doors in the living room so we would place a simple red heart in the center of each pane.  These were always […]

Holiday Wrapping

I think my favorite part of the holidays is wrapping gifts.  I mean, spending time with family and friends is great and all but the day you’re ready to wrap up your presents is just magical.  It marks the end of the shopping, the running around to find a gift or stocking stuffer for everyone […]
