Mason Jar Utensil Holder


In 5 minutes or less!



Seriously, that's all it's going to take.
5 minutes.




I had the burlap and ruffle ribbon and had never used it. It was time.

Ignore, the small burlap ribbon, I decided to use jute instead.




It's just a matter of gluing the ribbons on and adding a cute little wood button.
Tie a piece of jute around the top and you're done.




It's perfect for the spatula and spoons that I found on sale one day at Kohl's.
They deserve better than the messy drawer they would have gone in.

Have a great holiday weekend!

Happy Hump Day!

There were so many great ideas linked up at last week's party!

Here are a few of your favorites:


Garden Hose Wreath


I really need this on my deck!



Easy Spinach and Artichoke Dip


I could take a bite of that chip right now! Definitely making this!

I've been wanting to do this for years. This is the perfect inspiration to get started!

This is what I always order from Papa John's. Now I can make my own!

This is brilliant! And so simple to do.

Crochet Coasters


I don't know about you, but coasters seem to disappear around here as much as socks do.

I've got a quick and easy "go-to" pattern to crochet up a couple when you need them.




I got the pattern from Rachel at Adventures of a DIY Mom and it was really a hotpad pattern. Thank you, Rachel, for sharing it!

I've made a couple of hotpad's and loved the way it all came together so quickly, so I thought, why not a coaster, too?

I did it the exact same way, but instead of starting with a chain of 42, I only did 24.




I guessed on the 24, but the size turned out perfect!

I used cotton yarn and it seemed to work the best. Less fluffy.





Have a happy Monday!

Honeymoon Tote with Matching Wristlet


I told you the other day about Christina's bridal shower last Sunday (Here, if you missed it).

I thought it would be fun to show you one of the gifts I made for her.




She and Brandon are going to a beach resort in Mexico for their honeymoon so I made her a tote and matching wristlet/clutch to keep her phone, room key, and any other small items in.




I made the tote the same way I did my Pleather Tote. You can find the tutorial Here.




Before I sewed the whole thing together, I appliqued the MRS on using the hot pink lining fabric and added the rhinestone heart for the period. 




After I finished the tote bag, I thought she really needed the wristlet to match. She can either take it with her to the beach in the bag, or use it alone.

The tutorial is the same as my Mickey Mouse Clutch and you can find it Here.





Have a fabulous Friday!
