DIY Design Wall Tutorial

Happy Thursday friends! For today’s tutorial, I’m showing you how to make this DIY Design Wall! It is super easy and I love being able to display my in-progress projects!

For those of you who are new to design walls, they are just a way to layout your quilt blocks as you work. You can re-arrange them, add blocks as you go, and get all of your blocks organized before you assemble your project. Plus it is decor in itself, so your otherwise blank wall looks pretty while you work!

How to Make Wood Bead Garland // TUTORIAL

I love the look of natural wood bead garland, but when I searched online, I found that they’re actually quite expensive to buy! Especially if you’re trying to cover a larger tree!

So of course I decided to try and make my own. It was super easy and a lot of fun. It’s also a fun craft for kids. This project could not be any easier, so grab some supplies, put on your favorite holiday movie, and let’s get started!

For this project you will need:

And that’s it friends! Now go grab some beads and get to stringing! I should have these all over my house by the end of December LOL!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project, and we’ll see you tomorrow for more VLOGMAS 2020!

Fabric Tie Wreath // DIY

I have a super easy and fun craft idea to share with you today. My Fabric Tie Wreath is a perfect craft for kids and adults, and they make great gift ideas too!

And the best part is they use up some of that scrap stash you’ve probably got built up so they are practically free to make!

Except for mine, because I have a lot. A. LOT. OF. SCRAPS. And I’ll probably have to make a million of these to dent my stash! But let’s see how much we can use up today shall we?

Ready to get started?

Supplies:

  • Wire coat hanger
  • Scissors or a 45mm rotary trimmer
  • Lots of fun fabric scraps! (Approximately 1.5″ x 8″)
  • About 20 minutes to kill and maybe a few helpers! 😉

And that’s it friends! Now I think we’ll go make about 100 more because this one didn’t even dent my extensive scrap collection! To be fair, I’ve been collecting for years now so…

Happy crafting!

I get so many questions on how I made my quilt ladder so today I’ll be showing you what I did!

It’s nothing fancy, and super easy, literally anyone can do it!

Are ready to get started? Watch my easy DIY Quilt Ladder Video Tutorial here!

SUPPLIES:

  • Three 2x2x8 pieces of wood
  • Eight 3″ screws
  • Optional: Annie Sloan Antique White Chalk Paint and clear wax

CUT:

  • Cut two of the pieces of wood to 6′ long.
  • Cut the third piece into four equal pieces approx. 23″ long each.

ASSEMBLY:

  1. Place the first horizontal 23″ piece approx. 9″ down from the top of the two 6′ pieces and screw into place.
  2. Place the remaining three 23″ pieces approx. 12″ apart, screw each into place.

FINISH:

Paint using Annie Sloan’s chalk paint and wax. (By the way, I have tried less expensive chalk paint and it is NOT as good in my opinion. So I do recommend getting the Annie Sloan brand for this project if you plan to use chalk paint! If you have a brand of chalk paint you like, leave it in the comments below!)

Next let it dry and then hang your favorite quilts on it for display!
