Spring Wreath DIY

Faux flower wreath DIY

So, it is officially Spring, the clocks have changed and Easter is upon us. I was going to do an Easter wreath DIY but I wanted to make a wreath that I could keep up all Summer long. So, I decided to do a floral wreath instead. This was so easy to make and it only took me an afternoon to do. Like my other DIY's I have put together a quick video on my Youtube for you to check out and I will make sure to leave it at the bottom of this post.

Taking a Primark bag and making it personal

Remember last Summer when everyone had those pretty personalised straw bags and hats? Well, I decided I wanted one for myself. When I was in Pennies (Primark) recently, I saw gorgeous straw shopper bags and straw hats. I decided I was going to have a go and try and personalise them. It was really easy to do and only took me an hour. If you are heading to festivals this year or headed for your Summer holidays and want a fun personalised bag without spending a fortune, then this DIY is for you. As with all my other DIY posts, I have put together a Youtube video which I will leave below and you can check it out.  


DIY tiled tray | Ikea Klack Hack

Easy DIY Tiled Tray 

Hi everyone, Today I am turning a €5.25 Ikea Klack tray into something a little fancier. For ages, I have been wanting to use some pretty tiles in a DIY but I was unsure how to use them. I was scrolling through a magazine and I saw a tiled tray and that gave me the idea to make one for myself. This was my first time to use tiles in a project. It was also my first time to properly use grout which was messy and fun! It was nice to use new products that I have never used before and try something different. Just like my other projects on my blog, I have put together a Youtube video so you can watch to get a better idea of how I achieved the finished look. I will make sure to link it below. 


Mother's Day easy melt and pour Rose scented soaps

Easy Mother's Day soap DIY

Hi everyone, this weekend after being snowed in for three days ( thanks, Storm Emma!) I had serious cabin fever! So, once I could get out of the house I headed straight for my local craft shop and I got topped up with some soap making supplies. You might have already seen my other soap making post from Christmas time where I used the melt and pour soaps to make some honey and Oatmeal soaps. I am using the same method today, however, I am using some Rose essential oil and some rose shaped moulds. I will list the step by step of how I make them below. 


Upholstering and painting an old chair

Recovering an old chair

I do love a good chair makeover and those of you who have followed me know that I can't resist them I have literally pulled them out of skips and I hate to see them getting dumped. Today I have a fun chair makeover to share. What is different about this one is, I recovered the seat pad with some fabric. This was my first attempt at recovering a seat pad. This chair was rescued from a charity shop and I just loved the shape of the chair. It is solid wood and I really like the shape and style of the legs. I gave it a makeover as I wanted to style it up to match the other painted pieces in my master bedroom.
