DIY Wooden Bow Ties

FEATURED

In a few days it will officially be summer! Summer means a lot of crazy, cool things: wedding season, prom, Father’s Day is this weekend, parties with friends, backyard BBQ’s (I never say no to those). Let’s face it though, all of these events are awesome, but they mean one thing – you’re going to need something cool to wear. That’s where I come in. I’ve been obsessed with the wooden bow tie trend and have officially decided to hop on board. These puppies were mega easy to make and didn’t require any sewing on my part (mostly because I suck at sewing). Also, I got to use my extra large scrap pile for the job; so, bonus points for me.

My favorite projects in the whole wide world are pallet projects; mostly because they are easy to find and easy to use. Also, a lot of you guys seem to request different variations of pallet art, and I am all ears. To be perfectly honest, this was the scariest project I’ve ever done. Not because it was hard or anything, but mostly because it is on YOUTUBE as my first video tutorial (cue me screaming… and not in a cute way, but in a “what did I get myself into” way). While I’ve done similar projects like this in the past, wooden letters have been specifically requested. So, I thought, why not make this my first video/blog experiment? Please tell me I made a good choice…

DIY String Art

FEATURED

A few weeks ago the beautiful, rad, and talented Rachel Metz reached out to me about a collaboration, and I couldn’t be more stoked!  Together, we put our creative brains to work and decided it would be so much fun to do a DIY swap challenge. So, the two of us went to our respective shops on opposite coasts (she’s all the way in California), packaged up some fun materials, and sent them to each other. I sent her a box full of goodies that she made into the cutest Mason Jar Sconces, and I used her materials to create bohemian mixed-media string art for my bedroom! This project was so much fun and had my mind racing – there are so many things you can do with string, nails, and wood! Here’s how I made mine, and how you can make your own!
