Mason Jar Projects
The mason jar trend has yet to go away, and that is perfectly fine with us! There are so many great projects you can do with mason jars -- canning, candles, and candy jars -- and those are just ideas starting with the letter C! We love this idea from Skinny Meg of using mason jars for bathroom organizers! Find a wooden pallet stained to your preference, some pipe fittings and mason jars … put them together and you have a rustic chic bathroom organizer. Be sure to check out her blog post for directions on how to create this masterpiece.
The easiest way to add your personal touch to any home decor project is with a fresh coat of paint. Whether you choose the color of the year, your favorite color, or a nice neutral color, you will love the instant change with a fresh coat of paint. One simple way to have fun with a painting project is to paint an accent table a vibrant color to change a hidden piece into the new focal point. Check out these painting techniques from Sherwin Williams.
Door wreaths aren’t just for Christmas Decor, your door needs some decor love all year round! This spring and summer the perfect and easy DIY project is making a flowery wreath for your front door.

Sometimes finding the right accent pillow is impossible! When that happens, it’s time to take matters into your own hands. First you will need to pick the insert size you are wanting, then measure the insert. Next, this is the fun part, head to your local fabric store and pick the material and pattern perfect for your home. Get the amount of fabric you need to encase the insert. The next step requires a little sewing know-how! For more detailed directions on making your perfect accept pillow, follow these steps.
Another easy and fun home decor project can be completed in 5 minutes! How’s that for efficient? The items you will need for this project are a candle, glass vase big enough for the selected candle, and decorative fillers. The fillers can be rocks, stones, colored glass pieces, seashells, pine cones, coffee beans… you name it! Put the fillers in the vase then add the candle and voila! Now, if you are feeling extra crafty try these fun candle making techniques.

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
