DIY Paper Bunting

This is a great project for using up those extra scraps of paper!

Adjust your size based on how big or small you want your bunting to be. I made my triangles 4 1/2" by 6".

After measuring, use your ruler as a guide and cut with a Craft Knife.

Repeat until you have the desired number of triangles.
Use a hole punch to make holes in the top corners of your triangles.
Weave ribbon through your holes. continue, until your strand is sufficiently glorious( or you run out of paper).

DIY Budget Porch *Mini* Makeover


 I really wanted to make our outdoor space more comfortable and pretty this year. But I had a $20 budget. This isn't half of what I'd like to do, but it sure did brighten the space up!

These pillows are actually made out of placemats. Pillows can be pretty expensive considering they are just two pieces of cloth and some stuffing. But I stumbled upon a tutorial for making placemats into pillows! All you need is a double layer placemat and some stuffing. The sewing involved is very minimal,if any. 

These old plastic chairs just needed a little spray paint and they looked good as new. Be careful, spray painting is so fun, you might not be able to stop. I think that's the real reason you have to be 18 to buy it.

So here's the rundown:
