Recover a Lampshade with Arrow Fabric

Recover a lampshade with Spoonflower arrow fabric

Sometimes you just need a change – a small change. Many times I will add new pillows to change up the look of my space, or a throw or maybe a lampshade.  I found this lampshade for $1 two years ago during an after Christmas sale.  I snagged it up knowing I would recover it someday. With this pretty arrow fabric from Spoonflower I revamped the Christmas shade into a colorful spring shade for my spray painted yellow ombre lamp.

Easter Hair Accessories

Happy Easter Week! What fun things do you have planned for this weekend?  I must say, I enjoy being a mom to a girl.  Sans the drama and the whining – it can be so much fun.  Kayla loves to primp and enjoys matching outfits (think Punky Brewster).  So when I made her these bunny rabbit hair bows last year, as well as one to give a friend, she was ecstatic.  So much so she even modeled for some pictures.  Plus these are a great last minute craft you can whip up in 5 minutes.

Hey there!  It’s Carmel from Our Fifth House, and I’m back today to share a super simple and easy little DIY project.  These decorative, wooden arrows are fun to make and add the perfect amount of whimsy to a gallery wall.  I made them for my daughter’s room, but I think they’d be great in any space!  They’re so quick to whip up you could even create a whole wall of nothing but these fun arrows, which as side note would also be a great way to use up any leftover scrap wood you might have lying around your garage.
