. I’m testing out some DIYs that I had been wanting to try out from Pinterest I’m a huge pinterest fan and when i get time I like to try them out and i usually film them so that it makes an interesting video for my channel today i’m trying out some home DIY decor and everything is pretty reasonable and pretty easy to do so i wanted to share with you the first being the DIY rope centerpiece which you can get the plate for four dollars at michaels is 443 plate so you can make a few of these or you can just buy one into a centerpiece and then the Rope is about six dollars per roll so with my hot glue gun i’m just doing a little hot glue gun . and then i’m wrapping the rope all the way around till I fill up the entire plate now this was definitely the most tedious out of all of them.
And i had to take breaks and also Oliver was sitting there watching me and we were like singing songs and talking he always likes to watch me do these anyway just in case you were wondering what my kid does when I’m doing these he’s usually just sitting there watching me or somewhere close by so anyway this took some time not too long but it took some time but i loved how it turned out I thought it was absolutely gorgeous and you can find these types of things at expensive stores but I thought it was fun to make it myself.

And I was surprised i didn’t actually do as bad as i thought i was going to do so yeah this is pretty easy and i really liked it as a centerpiece i’m actually going to put a vase over that which leads me to my next DIY which is the DIY metallic vases phase cause how do you say base anyway I’m taking two phases that I got home goods you can get these for anywhere from seven to fifteen dollars I’m going to take some tape basically and tape off an area so that the paint doesn’t get in that area so it’s like half and half so that’s what I’m going to do with the first face the second base i’m just going to paint it completely and then the metallic spray you can also get for about 10 to 12 bucks and make sure that you’re far enough back if you get too close it will definitely start to drip and it won’t dry as evenly so cover the entire vase with spray paint and then let it dry for about four to five hours ok so once it dries it’s time to take a look at what it looks like now you can do this with rose gold gold or metallic like I did I thought it turned out pretty nice I might try gold next time a rose gold but yeah I thought it was pretty and i just added hydrangeas into both of these yeah yeah I did love how the metallic looked over the little rope centerpiece that I made and I thought it was really simple and classic so they were both really fun DIYs that I was excited to try and I thought they turned out pretty good plus they’re pretty easy so that helped too next we’re making a really fun DIY front door mat so i got this matt at walmart for five bucks and i’m just adding some rocks the rocks vary in price . you can find them on sale at michaels which is usually when I wait to get things as when it’s on sale but usually they run about six dollars per bag so i like to wait for when they go on sale pile of rocks river rocks in my bathroom to put myself on top of and I thought that this was a really good idea to put shoes so that all the dirt and grime and yuckiness comes off onto the rocks you do have to kind of clean the rocks every once in a while also.
If you have young children it’s not really small enough to be a choking hazard but definitely something they might throw or getting too so I try to remind my toddler not to touch next we’re doing a DIY no sew pillowcase which really works for me because I’m not much of a seamstress and I started with steaming it a little bit so it wasn’t super wrinkly i probably could iron it out a little bit more but I just didn’t I love this because you can liven up a pillow that’s not like that cute which is this pillow right there that’s not that cute so I’m going to start by folding the fabric over i got this fabric at joann’s fabric which i would definitely recommend shopping there when they have sales you can get really good deals on fabric so i got this seafoam fabric there for about thirteen dollars and I had some left over so i didn’t use it all for this pillow i would like to spend a little bit less than that so that’s why it’s good to go when they have sales and then the way that I’m folding it is very similar
