TELL: ST PATRICK'S DAY TREAT BAGS

I have come to the conclusion that rainbow pom poms are the cutest things EVER!  And since St. Patrick's Day is coming up there is no excuse not to use them.  These treat bags are colorful, fun and don't take long at all.  Fill them up with some rainbow candy, goodies or homemade treats, and then have a party :)

TELL: DIY COPPER VASE 2 DIFFERENT WAYS

I have been loving all the copper DIY's and home decor I've been seeing lately!  I figured I needed to give into this new craving so  I bought some copper colored contact paper.  This, combined with an inexpensive IKEA vase is the best combination!  It adds just a little copper in such a fun design.  Perfect for a quick update to an old vase or some decor for a party.  Copper is the new gold people (ha ha well probably not, but I really kind of love it).  Now I need to restrain myself...I am ready to use this copper contact paper on everything!  Seriously though, I need some ideas...What should I turn copper next?  I was thinking some frames?

DIY: MARBLED NOTEBOOK


So I HAD to try this whole nail polish marbling trend!  It looked so fun, easy and I could just use things I had on hand.  I really wanted to marble some paper notebooks but I found that the nail polish and water made it hard and left the paper all water damaged and lumpy.  So, I used contact paper and it worked awesome!  I am loving these notebooks!  So funky, fun and the perfect gift.

TELL: ORGANIZING DIY IDEAS

I am not a very organized person and living in an apartment doesn't help my problem.  I don't have an office to put all my crafts and projects in, so basically my house can become a mess of old and new projects.  I felt so inspired by Amy's post on getting organized and cleaning up, that I ACTUALLY started doing something. And since then, I've cleaned out and completely organized a closet specifically for all my crazy crafts.  I still have a lot to do, but its a start!  Now that it's started I can't wait to do more.  Our place is looking less and less like a "craft graveyard" as my husband puts it ha!  So yay to organizing!!
Here is a roundup of some adorable organizing DIY's that I can't wait to try.

TELL: PICTURE FRAME MAKEOVER



A new art print needs a fun new frame!  How perfectly adorable is this Valentine's art print from Minted??  The cutest way to remind those I love how much they mean to me.  
Ok now lets talk frames...First off I LOVE buying plain white frames from IKEA because they are so cheap but I hate that nothing fits inside them (strange European sizing??)  Anywho so I figured my new print needed a new matting AND a little frame facelift. This DIY is so easy and takes no time at all.  Now, not only are you giving an amazing piece of art but a personalized frame to go with it.  
                                             
Check out Minted's other Valentine inspired prints So many amazing prints to choose from.
