A Happy Home: 6 Housewares DIYs to Try this Weekend

I am counting down the days until our things arrive from Seattle (we are currently sitting on two lonely folding chairs in an empty apartment right now). 5 days left to go! But when our furniture and the rest of our things do arrive, they might be competing for space with these home DIYs I want to try over the weekend. Which one should I tackle first? Any thoughts?

1. DIY leather planter hanger from Design Sponge (by Steven Soria)

2. geometric mobile how-to from Hope Helms

3. painted votive holders from Ruffled (by Gather Events)

4. barnyard candleholders DIY from Country Living (adapted from The Sweetest Occasion)

5. how to make a modern geometric mousepad from Curbly (by Capree)

6. image transfer salt and pepper shakers from Say Yes to Hoboken (by Rachael)

I also write for Curbly and Project Wedding. Here are my articles elsewhere for the week…

1. 10 DIY Decorating Ideas for Fall

2. Make It: DIY Halloween Cross Stitch

3. Before and After: IKEA Lampshade Hack

4. How to make DIY mini florals

Have a great weekend!

Thanks Isobel. 🙂


YOur blog is fantastic!


Loved these items! Having moved nearly 30 times in almost 43 years of marriage, can visualise your surroundings well! Just don’t know how you’re managing to do all this blogging while you wait, though – although I can see it passes the time!

While building my Twitter activities, found and followed you and hope to continue regularly! Would welcome similar attention once you’ve settled in. Hope the contents survived the journey! Isobel
