Laura, from Finding Home, knows how to make anything out of yardsticks – I am convinced.  Do you remember her deer art made out of yardsticks?  It is one of my favorite projects she has done here on IC.  Today she is back with an even easier project that makes a huge statement.  A holiday star out of yardsticks that looks great outside, on a mantel or part of a gallery wall.

For the past several months I have been working with Krylon on their mystery boxes.  Basically they send me a box of random goodies and I have to think “outside-of-the-box” to create something fabulous.  I did a Back-to-School one and a Halloween one.  This last box is a Christmas themed one.  And let me tell you…this was difficult.  Talk about a box of randomness. Whoa nelly!

5 Ways to Get This Look: Christmas Kitchen

Christmas Kitchen Collage

Too early for Christmas?  Maybe just a little–but seriously, there are so many things I love about this kitchen that have nothing to do with seasonal decor that I had to share it with you.  This kitchen, featured by At Home In Arkansas, was designed by Tobi Fairley and her mother, Beverly Wells.  I found some really great tutorials to recreate parts of this Christmas kitchen.  Some are perfect for holiday decor, but most can be used year round to get your kitchen looking as bright and welcoming as this one.  Enjoy!
