DIY FRAMED LETTERS | PERFECT WALL DECOR FOR LITTLE GIRLS NURSERY

Hi Beauties!

Today I want to share my latest DIY project with you. In a previous post , I showed you guys these DIY framed letters that I made for my daughter’s room.

Now that my goddaughter, Skylar, is getting her own room soon, I just HAD to make sure that she had some customized wall art! I mean, a Princess room really isn’t a Princess room unless her name is displayed proudly above her castle, right?

Luckily, I had enough time to film the entire project this time so I could show you guys how I did them from start to finish. Most of the items are from Hobby Lobby, Dollar Tree, and Walmart! Click the video below to watch the tutorial!

 

 

Not only is this a very easy and inexpensive to add decor to a child’s room, you could also use these letters as wall art in a family room, classroom, or office. Hmmm, I’m getting more ideas as I type! Let me know what you guys think of this project!

 

DIY FAKE COFFIN NAILS AT HOME

Hello Beauties!

Today I want to share my nail secret with you guys…I wear press on’s! Only I think I do a pretty good job at not making them look like press on nails. After getting acrylic nails religiously for years, last Fall I finally decided to take them off for a training class. To my surprise, after removing the tips, my real nails and nail bed were severely damaged. It took me 4-6 months before my nails grew past my skin and even then they were VERY brittle.

After getting acrylic nails religiously for years, last December I finally decided to take them off for a training class. To my surprise, after removing the tips, my real nails and nail bed were severely damaged. It took me 4-6 months before my nails grew past my skin and even then they were VERY brittle.

Moving forward I attempted to opt for a better solution- gel nails. Only everytime I went to the nail salon, the technician tried to convince me that the powder + liquid duo that he was pulling out (before I even told him what I wanted) was a “gel-powder“. 🤔🤔🤔 How could it be a gel if it was a powder, you ask? Yeah me too, that’s when I got myself up out of that chair and swore off nail salons.

My only problem is that I really actually enjoy tips and the cool sound they make when tapping against my keyboard.😔 It sort of makes me feel sophisticated, you know.

I decided that I was going to try and do them myself. I do remember wearing press-on nails back in school, you know the kind that popped off every other period? Yeah, those. I knew I was taking a chance with this press-on situation but I decided to try it out anyway.

To my surprise, my nails came out pretty darn professional looking, and the best part is, they last for about a week! Very cheap, very low maintenance, and very EASY to do! Check out the tutorial below!

DIY MAKEUP BRUSH HOLDER

I have a LOT of makeup brushes. So many that at times I’m not really sure what to do with all of them. I mean, use them, of course, but confession, I don’t really use all of them. I have my favorite 10 that are my go-to, but even then, you can only use one brush at a time.

I needed brush storage and since I and my OCD cannot stand to see them cluttered over the counter, I had to find a stylish (and cheap) way to organize them.

In came the gold spray paint and the rest is history! Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE me some gold spray paint! I came across these cute little vases from DollarTree, that I tend to use for everything BUT flowers 🤔.

I used some painters tape to create some abstract designs and spray painted away. After peeling the tape off, I added some diamond confetti and my cute DIY Makeup Brush Holders were done!

I hope you guys enjoy! Tag me if you try this project, I would love to see what you come up with!

Pretty (No Carve) DIY Glam Pumpkins

Who else loves fall as much as I do? I mean seriously how could you not obsess over cozy sweaters, hot beverages, and don’t even get me started on pumpkin spice everything!

Speaking of pumpkins, after London and I went pumpkin picking I thought we’d try to do something other than carving this year. Even though fresh pumpkin is a lovely ingredient for fall recipes.I think I can skip the mess and just settle for the canned.

This time we ditched the knives and reached for the glitter to create a more glamorous touch to the season, and boy did we have fun! London really enjoyed herself…I mean REALLY REALLY enjoyed herself. I mean like glitter glued to her legs enjoyed herself.

In total, we had 6 pumpkins to decorate. I decided to create some Alanna Foxx originals while Lon headed straight for the sparkles. I’d say we did a pretty good job!

I started off by spray painting the stems of each pumpkin. Making sure to tape around the base of the stem, covering the pumpkin with tissue paper to protect from the spray paint. If you want to paint the entire pumpkin one color skip the protection and spray the entire pumpkin. Let that dry for about 30 minutes.

Next, do the opposite, protect the stem as you spray paint the pumpkin with two coats of spray paint. Allow to dry for about an hour.

To add glitter: Coat the pumpkin in spray adhesive and sprinkle with glitter. Sprinkle a little or sprinkle a lot you can even do two coats if you like. Seal the glitter in with clear spray sealer.

(My special little helper)

To add bling letters: Sketch out the letters you would like to be written on the pumpkin, a light market or highlighter is perfect for this. Using a glue gun apply rhinestones one by one, tracing the letters written on the pumpkin.

There you have it! This project was super easy and fun! All the items that I used will be listed below. Don’t forget to tag and tweet me your pictures if you decide to do one of these ideas, I would love to see how they come out!

*Products used
Glue
– Spray Paint (black, white, and gold)
– Glitter (both fine and regular)
Rhinestones
Washi tape* Be mindful of harmful chemicals when using spray paint, make sure the area is well-ventilated. 

 

Remember, pumpkins are fun to decorate all season, NOT just for Halloween. Happy Fall! ♥

Decorate: DIY Framed Letters

I LOVE to decorate and anyone that knows me knows that I love finding new and creative decor that I can D-I-Y for my home.

We recently moved into a new home where London’s room is not only bigger but a much different shade of pink color than it was at our old house. That means I have plenty of room to DIY it up!

When London was first born my mom bought her these super cute pink glittery letters that spelled out her name, but I procrastinated with putting them up and my teething baby chewed them up pretty badly. Needless to say, I couldn’t use those anymore but I did want to find a creative way to incorporate her name into her new room design.

Browsing the isles of Michaels…or my second home as some like to call it, I came across some small wooden letters, and you guessed it, they were on SALE. So naturally, I picked up all the letters in Miss London’s name and headed to the spray painting isle.

Originally I was going to paint the letters pink and hang them on the walls by bow-tied ribbon, however I was able to find some cheap frames at Dollar Tree and I thought the letters would look SO much cuter in the frames.

I spray painted the frames & letters and used scrapbooking paper as the background. Once everything was dry I put the frames back together (with the scrapbooking paper) and hot glued the letters and ribbon on.

This is how they came out. Super adorable!
