Make a Day of the Dead Wreath!

Make a Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) wreath with plastic skull eggs!

Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) is an important holiday here in San Antonio so I created a special Day of the Dead skull wreath to add to commemorate it! If you're not familiar with the Day of the Dead, it is a holiday traditionally celebrated in Mexico the day after Halloween to honor deceased loved ones. The holiday is known for its colorful "sugar skulls" that have become popular Halloween decorations in the past couple years. 

I made this wreath with an unexpected supply - plastic skull eggs from Oriental Trading. But I didn't stop at the wreath, I decided to decorate a Day of the Dead themed mantel. Check it out!

Our Fall Harvest Dining Room with

Update your dining room for fall with beautiful harvest decor!

I am so excited to share my latest project with with you - our dining room all decked out for fall! I'm keeping it just like this until Thanksgiving. No one can eat at our table until then because it is just too pretty - ha! To transform our dining room for fall, I incorporated lots of warm metallics, natural wood tones, pops of orange, and some of my favorite fall accents like pumpkins and wreaths.

Supply of the Month Challenge: Colorful Button Wreath!

It's time for the October Supply of the Month Challenge with Oriental Trading, and this month it is all about buttons! I was challenged to make something using this pack of bright rainbow craft buttons and came up with this colorful burlap and button wreath. Is it any surprise that I would choose to make a wreath? ;) I don't craft with buttons or burlap very often, but I thought the two would work well together to create a cozy feel.

The burlap flowers were really simple to make, and you can change up the color of the burlap and the buttons that you use to match your home decor or a particular holiday. I have my new wreath hanging on the door to my craft room and plan on keeping it up year round!
