This year’s St. Patrick’s Day decor is all about the green and gold — with a pinch of LUCK!

I used some DIY decor pieces from last year, as well as a few new fun items.

My new LUCKY yarn wreath was the inspiration for the color combo of this year’s mantel.

I love the simplicity of the green with the wood plank backdrop. (You find the wreath tutorial here and you can also obtain your own free mini LUCKY banner printable here).

I made the banner using by adding DIY gold tassels to an existing green pom pom garland.

I love the touch of glam, don’t you?

The cute Lucky Me, I Have You sign is made by the The Banner Girls. It was the perfect accessory for this year’s mantel, and it’s even cuter in person!

This little St. Patrick’s Day Fabric Bird is from The Little Green Bean. Isn’t he just the cutest in his mini green shamrock hat?

Hope you have a safe and fun St. Patrick’s Day this year!

Happy March!  Remember that cute Valentine wreath I made last month?  Well,  it has since been updated for St. Patrick’s Day!

I am in love with this wreath, not only is it super cute but it is so easy to update! I simply removed the pink and red DIY felt flowers and replaced them with green ones.  The tutorial for this adorable yarn wreath and DIY felt flowers can be found here.  And if you would like to make this festive green variation of my wreath you can print out the mini LUCKY banner, too!  The free printable is available here: LUCKY Mini Banner Printable.

Hello, and Welcome February!

Here is a glimpse of my holiday bedroom all decked out for Valentine’s Day!  I decided this year was all about the reds and pinks and I truly LOVE how it came out! (This post includes links to purchase some of the items needed for this project  – thank you for your support, as a percentage helps support my family.)

My king size DIY Farmhouse bed is my absolute favorite accessory in my master bedroom. The DIY Chicken Wire Frame is also a favorite piece – I love to decorate it for the holidays!

This year I decided to make a new LOVE sign over the bed.  The inspiration came about when I made the ombre yarn wreath.  I knew I wanted the wreath to hang over my bed, and LOVE was the perfect word.  To my surprise I found the matching sized letters while shopping one day!  Both the wooden letters and the foam wreath are twelve inches in height.

I sanded then painted the wooden letters gold to add a little bit of glam using Gold Spray Paint.

As for the wreath, I used a ruler and marked three inch sections on the styrofoam wreath form.  I then wrapped the yarn around, rotating colors.  I used Cherry Red, Pretty ‘N Pink, and Baby Pink for my ombre wreath.

I love how it came out!

I added a few extra Valentine decorations, including fun garlands and pillows.  Heart lights were a purchase from Target last year.
