DIY: Floral wall lettering

Floral wall lettering DIY 6

Since moving into our new home, I have had a brain full of sooo many ideas. This one was inspired by the floral lettering I have available on my Etsy Shop and after browsing Pinterest – I came across this idea! So here is my version using the same technique..

I used cardboard paper mache lettering from the craft store which I then cut the top of so it was hollow. Next, I cut, fitted and glued pieces of floral foam – this made fastening the fake flowers soooo easy. Remember to cut a hole in the back of each letter so you can fasten them to the wall.

I also found these black plastic birds to surround my pretty floral letters.
This is the first piece of artyness to go up in the new house. I looooove it! And thought it was a perfect DIY for Valentines Day.
Do you have anything special planned for Valentines Day this year? Any favourite DIY’s?xobec

This year we decided to try out an alternative Christmas tree – this is a huge branch found at the beach which I spray painted lightly with white to look like snow! And decorated sparsely with silver, turquoise and a few handmade decorations.
I loooove this years tree!
Have you got your tree up yet? What colour combo have you chosen?xobec

DIY: Valentines Day Jewellery Box

Jewellery Box DIY 1

Today I’m sharing a simple idea for Valentines Day. If you’re giving someone something small like jewellery this would be perfect! Supplies needed: patterned paper, scissors, a small box and modpodge.

Using some patterned paper I cut out small and large hearts then used modpodge to stick them randomly over the box. Leave to dry before finishing with some pretty bakers twine!
