Napkin Stand DIY

IMG_4567.JPGAs you can see I am really all about wood…wood here, wood there and wood everywhere. Almost all my decoration or DIY’s are made out of wood. I just love the feeling it gives you, it is so warm, so homey.

It was very important for me to decorate my home the way I love. I knew I was going to spent most of my time at home and I am still spending all my time at home. Also, our winters are long and VERY cold. Therefore I really wanted a comfy house where you can feel at peace.

This tissue stand pretty much cost me $2. I bought the napkin stand at our Dollar Store for $1.50 and had the rest lying around at home.

I ran into the same stand at winners, and it was selling for $15.99!! So it was definitely worth it!! It only took a couple minutes and saved me so much money as well! Just what I love, quick tutorials that cost little money. Do you love that as well? Then stay tuned for another one of my simple DIY’s 🙂

What you need:

  • Tissue Stand
  • Wood Slice
  • Silicone or any other strong glue

How to do it:

First you take your Tissue Stand and cut it at the bottom where it starts to make the base.IMG_0128.JPG

Now take your wood slice and mark where you want your holes. Cut them out afterwards.IMG_4404.JPG

Now take your silicone or any other strong glue and put them in the holes and then attach the stand.IMG_4554.JPG.jpgFinally, I let mine dry overnight and as a result it stuck on there like a bomb!IMG_4558.JPG

There you are, a rustic SUPER cute Tissue Stand!IMG_4571.JPGIt is such a small addition in your home, where you don’t necessarily think about making one. But once you have, you can be so happy about it! I find the small items in your home are the most noteworthy ones.IMG_4563.JPGIMG_4571 - Copy

DIY Wood Slice Center Piece

IMG_3762This DIY is super easy and I get commented on it from almost every visitor I have! It took me literally 10-20 minutes for 4 of these. I use them for everything, as center pieces on our dining table, pot holders, to store our drinks on it etc. It cost me almost nothing and has so many uses! Here’s how I did it:

What you need:

  • 7 Wood Slices about 4 1/2 – 5 inch in diameter
  • Shelf Liners In Beige
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Stapler
  • Scissors

First off, you take your shelf liner and spread it out. I bought a 2-pack from dollarama for $1.25.

Then, you put one wood slice in the center and the other 6 all around it. Play around with it a bit until you’re satisfied with the look.

Now you can hot glue each wood slice on the shelf liner and cut the extra shelf liner off. Turn the Wood Slice Center Piece around and staple the shelf liner onto the wood. It’s very important to do this, because the hot glue will wear off after time and your wood slices will eventually fall off.

Fridge Magnets DIY

 

Hi everybody!

Today I will show you how I made these cute Fridge Magnets that cost me less than $5 for 16 magnets! I had been looking for cute magnets for our fridge, but I never found anything. Or if I did, it was overpriced and not exactly what I was looking for.I know most people use magnets from places like they have went, like Cuba or others, but we have not gone to many places and our last idea would be buying a magnet for our fridge. When I stumbled upon these cute heart buttons at Dollar Tree it hit me right away. Here’s how you can’t do it any easier:

Things you will need:

  • a hot glue gun
  • cute buttons of your choice (I got mine from Dollar Tree)
  • Magnetic Buttons

Easy as a Pie! Step one is heating up your glue gun… duh!

Then you put a dab of hot glue gun on a button and stick it on a button.

This you repeat to make as many magnets as you like, I made about 16.
