DIY: houses

This DIY project was inspired by the oh so awesome IKEA 2014 catalog. There is so much amazing home decor styling in this year's catalog that I had to create my own craft project. Lately I have seen house shapes trending on home decor blogs and websites. Check out the cool house silhouettes on page 97 from the new IKEA catalog.

My own version of these house silhouettes were made using craft paint and scrap fabric.

Here's what you need to make these lovely shapes for your home. Let's get started.

Supply list:
scrap fabric
fabric glue
cut wood shapes
sponge brushes
acrylic paint

Cut your fabric about 1 inch larger than the house shape.

Use fabric glue to cover your house. Make nice clean folds to keep the fabric smooth. Let the glue dry before your flip it over.

Turn your house over and smooth out the fabric to make sure it's straight. Ta-dah done.

Now let's paint. Squeeze some acrylic paint onto your house surface.

Use your sponge brush to paint your house shape. Make sure you get the side as well. Let the paint dry completely before handling.

Once it's dry, you are done. Yay!

Find a great spot in your home for these sweet beauties. They can lean on the wall of a book shelf or mount them to a wall. Of course I went nuts and made more painted houses from some scrap wood I had. These make great book ends or use them as mini house sculptures. Check it out!


crafts + cocktails recap

Thursday night I had the pleasure of teaching my first Crafts and Cocktails workshop, YAY! The workshop was held at the M Rich Center for Creative Arts, Media & Technology. The space was inspiring which set the tone for the night's craft workshop. Plenty of photo opportunities for my bloggers.
We started the night with yummy champagne and gelato cocktails followed by the most amazing chocolate brownies and strawberry treats were provided by Soo Soo Tasty. My sweet tooth got the best of me. We will not talk about how many sweet treats I ate that night. (shaking my head)
The ladies came ready to craft. They picked out their beads and jumped right in. We laughed and laughed and made some really cute bracelets. I had a blast sharing my creative craftiness with the ladies and from the looks of every one's Instagram pics, they had a great time too! Thank you to the attendees, you girls were great: @missfoodiefab, @soosootasty, @allymcglam, @sharimargolin, @kiwithebeauty, @chinikamcm. A special thank you to my bestie Dionne, she was the event greeter and bartender for the night.
The next Crafts+Cocktails is coming next month. Event dates coming soon.
