8 Ways to Give Your Home a Fresh New Look!



This is a Guest Post from Marsha Hosein. I only share information that I find fun, informative, or helpful! Enjoy!

Home is a place where family gathers, where it feels good to sit down and relax at the end of the day. For a home to fulfill that purpose, it needs to feel warm and welcoming. That`s why it’s so important that your home decor appeals to you.

When starting a revamping project, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure how or where to start. Here are a few tips to help you get started and inspire in choosing a new home decor project.

Find Your Style
The first thing you need to do is find your style. Which look represents you most? Which environment are you most comfortable in? If you’re not sure, search for inspiration. Look online, go to home decorating shops. There`s no need to buy anything, simply take note of what draws your eye.

Declutter
Before starting any big project, declutter your house. Get rid of what you don’t use or no longer like, even if it’s furniture.

Plan
Once you’ve decluttered, go through the whole house, room by room. Determine what you don’t like about the space and what you could possibly do to improve it. Keep in mind that this is a long-term project. Take the time to shop around, look for deals, and do as much of the work as possible yourself.

Paint
Painting the walls is one of the first steps in redecorating. Covering that old cobalt blue with a soft grey can change the entire look of a room. Not sure where to begin? Visit your local hardware stores and look through their free paint catalogs. Or better yet, find a piece you truly love and decorate the room around it. Choose a color from a throw cushion, for example, and match it with a paint sample.

Change Light Fixtures
Lighting has a huge impact on the mood of a house. Is a room dark and stuffy? Add more light by installing extra fixtures or adding a table lamp or floor lamp. Are your light fixtures outdated? Switch them for something fresh and modern.

Revamp Your Fireplace
Do you have a fireplace? Is it in need of a makeover? A fireplace is the focal point of any room. There are many ways to revamp a fireplace, depending on your budget. To keep it simple and the cost low, consider painting the mantel and the bricks surrounding your fireplace. If your budget allows, consider buying a new mantel and have your fireplace refaced. Before starting any work on or around your fireplace, make sure to consult a professional to ensure that the materials used aren’t a fire hazard. Consult the We Love Fire website for useful tips and safety information.

Rethink Your Furniture
Does a couch need upholstering? Do you have old furniture that could be painted? Use your imagination to recycle old items. Or perhaps all your room needs is to be reorganized by moving the furniture around.

Buy Accessories
Use accessories like cushions, throws and vases to add splashes of color to your decor.They are normally inexpensive and can make all the difference! Regroup pictures and artwork and display them on your walls.

Now it's time to sit back and enjoy. The sky is the limit when your creativity runs wild! Take things one room at a time, step by step, and things will fall into place. Before you know it, you’ll have a house that truly feels like home.

DIY No-Sew Felt and Pom-Pom Winter Wreath!


The winter season is upon us and decorating our homes for the holidays is such a fun way to get in a merry mood. I love crafting and I wanted to share with you my latest DIY project, that doesn’t even require a sewing machine! If you own a hot glue gun, you are all set! With my easy-to-follow instructions, you too, will have a pretty wreath to hang up. Great for your front door, mantle, window, and much more!



Supply List:

Metal Wreath Form
2 Different Colored Green Felt Fabrics (*Make sure you get enough of the darker fabric to cover the size wreath form you picked out and extra for the leaves. The lighter colored fabric will only be used to make leaves)
Hot Glue Gun & Sticks
Fabric Scissors
2 Different Sized White Pom-Poms



Place the metal wreath form on top of two layers of the darker green fabric. Then, cut the fabric so that it is about an inch larger around the whole circumference.




Flip the metal wreath form over and hot glue the felt to the outer rim while pinching the fabric down as the glue cools. Go all the way around until it looks like this.




Then, you will need to cut a hole in the center. I made an “X” cut and then trimmed out the extra fabric. Again, leaving about 1 inch extra around the inner circumference.

Then, hot glue the fabric to the inner ring of the metal form. Once completed, flip the wreath over and it will look like this.



If you don’t want to cover the back of the wreath form, you can skip this next step, otherwise continue here.



To cover the back of the metal wreath form, trim your remaining piece of cut fabric to better fit the outer ring of the form. This way there won’t be any extra material sticking out. If there is, be sure to cut it off. Then, hot glue the fabric in place as you did in the other steps. Next, flip the form over and cut a hole in the center and trim out the excess fabric. Once cut, flip the form over and hot glue the fabric to the inner ring (just like you did for the front of the form). Your wreath form is now fully covered.

Now, it’s time to move on to the leaves!




Using both fabric colors, cut out a LOT of leaves. You might need to cut more later depending on how full you want the wreath to look.



Once you have a bunch of leaves cut, pick one and hot glue the middle of the base of the leaf and pinch the sides together. Here is what they will look like when you are done.










After hot gluing your leaves together, now it’s time to hot glue them to your wreath! *Tip: For a more natural look overlap the leaves and alternate colors.



Once you have glued all your leaves on your wreath, step back and take a look at your beautiful creation!



Lastly, it’s time for the finishing touch! Get ready to add some cute pom-poms to look like fallen snow!



To get the look you want, randomly place your different-sized pom-poms on the wreath and adjust as you like. Once you are happy with the placement, hot glue them in place.



WOW! I just love the look of this wreath! It was so much fun to make and every time I see it in my house I get a great feeling knowing that I made it. This wreath will make a festive addition to your home décor this winter season!

I hope you enjoyed my DIY No-Sew Winter Wreath. If you make one, I would love to see it!

UglyChristmasSweater.com Will Bring The Funny This Holiday Season!


The holidays are all about traditions. Old or new, they give us that feeling of togetherness during this special time of year. A new tradition that started not too long ago were ugly Christmas sweater parties. People were having them at work, friends’ houses, and family get-togethers. That’s why I couldn’t wait to partner with UglyChristmasSweater.com to tell all my readers about this fun site!

UglyChristmasSweater.com has all your fun holiday needs covered! This is a one-stop shop that has everything from the popular ugly Christmas sweater, to fun sleeping pj’s and even blow-up decorations for your front yard! But, this site doesn’t stop there. They even have custom sweaters that you can make and officially licensed products from all our favorite holiday movies, too!



One of the funniest holiday movies I watched when I was growing up was, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and I found the pajamas that Clark (Chevy Chase) wore! I couldn’t believe it and knew I had to have them.

This super funny pajama sleep set has green, burgundy, and blue dinosaurs on them. The shirt has a button-down front and a pocket on one side. The pants have a comfortable, stretchy elastic waistband and both pieces are made of polyester material. Super soft to the touch, not that kind of material that catches on your hand when you rub over it. Perfectly cozy for these colder winter days. These pj’s are unisex and officially licensed, too!



Check out a close-up of the fun print!
