Yes, I’m back with ANOTHER garland DIY. After taking down my little “Mini Tassel Garland” while decorating for Christmas, the place it had been hanging on the wall just looked so empty. I remembered that I had picked up several rolls of festive washi tape at the craft store recently, so I decided to make this little festive bunting garland! Continue reading
Mmmh…do you smell that? Cinnamon, oranges and hint of pine? The warm and spicy scent of Christmas is in the air! Although it’s still too early to start baking Christmas biscuits and simmering that mulled wine on the stove, it’s pretty easy to create a cosy and warm atmosphere using only natural ingredients.

Hey everyone! DIY Sunday is slowly becoming a thing, especially since the weather has been awful this weekend. It’s been raining for days now and you can feel that winter is just around the corner. I don’t like decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving, but this grey weather inspired me to bring a little early Christmas spirit to our home. Continue reading
Happy Sunday everyone! Today I’m back with a little DIY: A mini tassel garland in autumnal colours. It’s a very easy and quick little project that adds a little autumnal charm to your room!

Spring is in full swing where I live – the trees are flowering, the bees are buzzing and the weather is getting warmer. Inspired by the awakening of nature and the fact that I got rid of a large part of my jewellery last year, I came up with the idea of beading a couple of cherry-blossom-inspired bracelets.

Bringing light into the New Year, part 2!
Just as many of my friends and colleagues at the moment, I managed to catch the flu last week….however, the world events didn’t just pass me by. I don’t want to state any political opinion here, but I thought that these snow lanterns might bring a little bit of brightness back to our lives.
I actually found the idea for this DIY in the German magazine “Landlust” (January / February 2017), a rural lifestyle magazine. The beautiful thing about these snow lights is that after preparing the glass containers, you can basically watch the “ice crystals” grow every day.
Hey, I hope you had a good start into the New Year! As it seems, 2017 is starting with fundamental change for many people. With all the Christmas decorations gone, I felt the need to bring a little light back into this dark month of January. These cute fairy lights are very easy to make and add a little brightness to these cold winter days. Continue reading
It’s already the second weekend in December and that special Christmas feeling is spreading warm in our tummies. Golden lights and the smell of mulled wine and waffles surround us on every trip to the city. But between all the baking and searching for presents, I think it’s important to find some time for ourselves and simply unwind. These painted candle holders are very easy and quick to make. You only need a couple of glass containers, gold acrylic paint and a small brush. They also make unique and very personal Christmas gifts!
As the weather has been horrible this weekend, I decided to start a little DIY Christmas decoration project: evergreen stars. I still had a golden star frame I didn’t know what to do with, so went to the craft store on Saturday to buy some wire and gathered a variety of evergreens from my garden: juniper, yew, thuja and myrtle. You can also use rosemary, thyme, holly or ivy.
