I Made This: Yarn Wallhanging

Yarn Wallhanging DIY | Moss Points North

I would say that my usual decorating M.O. is to have every wall covered with either artwork or furniture against it. I am not super comfortable with empty space. So when the wall between my closet and my bathroom was blank for over a year it was definitely starting to bug me. The bed corner comes close to the wall and so any furniture or shelving option was out of the picture since it is a small relatively high trafficked ‘hallway’.

When I came across the DIY project for these yarn wallhangings on the creativebug blog I knew I had to make one! I was able to use supplies and yarn that I had around the house and I even used up a few skeins of yarn. It was a fun therapeutic project that I completed in an afternoon while I caught up on some America’s Got Talent {no shame!}. The trickiest part is the trimming to get the shape you want. I ended up here with a bit of an off-kiltered chevron and I decided to let it sit for awhile to see how I like it. I figured less is more since you can’t add length back on! Maybe someday I’ll trim some more, we shall see.

I Made This: Terrarium

DIY Terrarium | Moss Points North

I want to start sharing a lot more of my personal projects that I make here on the blog, starting today with this terrarium! I am a self proclaimed plant mother and lover of the terrarium craze so when I saw this light in the thrift store, my mind immediately saw terrarium.

I see these hanging lights fairly regularly during my thrift store outings. I picked up a smaller one {I think I paid around $5} since I do not have a lot of space to play around with in my apartment. Once I disassembled the light, I flipped the glass shade upside down and laid in some fish tank gravel and enough soil to plant my succulent. I left the holes in the bottom open for drainage and placed it on a small plate I had.

I am so in love with how it turned out!

What are some thrift store items you have found and given new life to?
