Easy Halloween porch decor

Easy Halloween porch decor |

We're enjoying our kid's fall break vacation and crossing off bucket list items.  We've gone to open gym, the movies, the pumpkin patch and now putting out Halloween decor, the kids' request.  We've partnered with Command Outdoor Products to fulfill the kiddos' wish.  And since we were short on time due to many cousin playdates, we took a short cut and bought some of this decor.  All DIY-friendly but sometimes packaged goods are handy.  The EEK letters are one of our fav Halloween crafts to date and we've taken it up a notch to add it to this striped wood sign...tutorial coming later this weekend.  Loving our easy Halloween porch decor, we … continue reading

diy washi tape feathers

DIY | washi tape feathers, so cute + easy to make!

We love washi tape and quick crafts.  When we made this fun hand painted arrow sign, we wanted to attach feathers somehow to give it a more mixed media feel.  We wracked our brains and thought of yarn garland hangers with a leather feather, hand drawn paper feathers, scrapbook paper feathers, etc.  We just bought some new washi tape this weekend so we thought they'd be cute to incorporate.  So I did a quick google search and sure enough...someone already thought of it!!  Drat!! Hers are really cute but are solid tape so we mixed ours up with patterns...because if you are a loyal reader, you KNOW we loooooove us some color + pattern mixing! For supplies, … continue reading

Hi friends, its Aimee from Like Mother Like Daughter here again! Halloween is only a month away and its such a fun holiday to celebrate!

Kristi drug this 100 year old piece of barn wood home from her in-progress new build.  She stacked it in my yard so pretty much that means it's free game right???  I mean, she may still hold a slight grudge when she did the same thing with her hand-me-down-crib-mattress turned bulletin board in my craft room.  Someone should tell her to stop leaving goodies in my yard (: So of course I painted it whilst she was grocery shopping one day...isn't it cute?  I love this hand painted arrow sign, it's a fun addition to my entryway and I painted 6 stripes on there to make it custom to the number of peeps who run around here all day.  Well, more like 20 peeps run around … continue reading

Wooden Hexagon Wreath

Happy Friday.  How was your week?  Ours was emotionally draining as we watched a good friend of ours bury her seven year old daughter.  Kristi and our older sis Katie worked long hours to put together a video of London for the viewing.  We can't image our friend's pain but at times like this, rely on our our faith and Father in Heaven for His comfort.   Check out the hash tag #Live4London, she will see her family again!!  If you're feeling generous, you can donate to help them cover funeral and moving costs (they were in the process of a move when the accident happened).  And if you're suffered a loss, please share any words of comfort that got you … continue reading
