Click here to see more of my blue and white Spring table. I took a couple of bamboo chargers (see similar here) and decoupaged them in a pretty blue and white floral and they complement my Spring table so well! Click here for the tutorial.

Air dry clay mushrooms with polka dots

Are mushrooms a sign of Spring? I really don't know, I just know they're darn cute, lol! I used some leftover air dry clay from another project to craft these cuties for a simple, last-minute  St. Patrick's day vignette. The mushrooms' glossy, polka dotted tops are my absolute favorite! Click here for the video tutorial where I share tips on getting the mushrooms to stand upright.

DIY wreath with painted terracotta pots and lavender

This wreath looks like it came straight out of the French countryside! Painting and aging the terracotta pots is the trick to creating this look, and I share exactly how to do it here. You could always leave the terra cotta pots if you prefer a natural look. I'm sharing a unique tip for adding flowers, succulents and moss without any hot glue! Click here for the video tutorial.

  1. I was looking online yesterday for faux muscari...grape hyacinths...and they are few and far between and really, really expensive. I think I might be able to spray paint some berries the proper hue of blue, as you've done, and come up with something that will give the impression of grape hyacinths without the cost. Thanks for the inspiration!
