When the studio tour came out I got a TON of reader questions about where the watercolor wall art above the couch was from. I definitely did not see that one coming seeing as how I seriously made that thing in 10 minutes flat as Kimberly was walking in to take photos of the space. Originally we had this DIY paper wall art on the wall there instead, but I decided it was a little too punchy and wanted a more muted focal point so I switched it out at the last second.

I’ve finally gotten around to fulfilling your requests for a how-to with this DIY watercolor wall art tutorial, and you might actually laugh at how easy this is to make, not even joking!

A DIY Halloween floral centerpiece

I never thought my dead plant skills were ever going to treat me this well, but I have to say I’ve never felt so proud of dead persimmons and brown flowers before. I couldn’t resist buying some of these crazy looking stems when we were at the market a few weeks ago and I liked the idea of tying in a white pumpkin to keep it a little bright and (sort of) cheery, but with just the right touch of eery for the perfect DIY Halloween floral centerpiece.

Though I’m not necessarily a big Halloween fan, I can still whip up a few non-scary decor ideas here and there, and these DIY Halloween glassware decals may actually be one of my prouder moments. I mean, not only were they an excellent excuse for me to breakdown and buy some copper glasses (to resemble pumpkin color, of course), but they’re also temporary so I can have these copper mug beauties all to my non-scary holiday self after the season ends.

To seal the deal, you can make a whole slew of custom glassware decals for your costume party with just one package of vinyl clings, bet you didn’t see that one coming!

DIY Fruit Loop Costume Glasses

Alright, so I’m not much of a Halloween person, but I can blend with the best of them (the Halloween lovers, that is) when need be. Usually that need comes somewhere around October over year, so alas, I’ve pulling up my spooktacular sleeves with these DIY fruit loop costume glasses over on Minted! It doesn’t get much scarier than glasses with fruit on them, right?

You can see the whole tutorial plus my little addition for combining these guys into a whole get-up! Just promise to picture a kid modeling them instead of me, okay?
