DIY paper maidenhair fern mobile

DIY paper maidenhair fern mobile

by Corrie Beth Hogg of Apple of My DIY 

A few years ago I visited the redwood forests in northern California for the first time, my friend and I spent hours hiking amongst the large boughs and trunks, it was magical and inspirational! One of my favorite memories is this steep rock face we found that was completely covered in maidenhair ferns. I love how delicate and expressive they are. I’m smitten. I’ve tried to capture those qualities here in paper with this mobile, it is so light, it’s constantly twisting and turning in the slightest breeze. You only need a few supplies to make this – super easy if you have a paper cutting machine, but you can cut by hand as well.DIY paper maidenhair fern mobile Read on →

DIY paper leaf garland

diy-paper-garland-leaf-tutorial

You absolutely loved the DIY upcycled paper flower chandelier from the above, but I got a lot of requests to show how we made the green garland in the photo as well. I will say, making the garland out of paper was one of our smarter moves as we can now use it for multiple occasions and not have it die out on us. Score! It’s beautiful home decor but also perfect for summer gatherings and even winter gatherings as it has that holiday air. AND! This garland is easy peasy to make. Promise!

DIY succulent wall planter (& video)

DIY succulent wall planter

I’ve been wanting to bring my friend Cassidy Tuttle, author of The Idiot’s Guide to Succulents and blogger of Succulents and Sunshine, for quite some time now to show you how to keep succulents. It seems like every time I mention succulents, albeit not too often, there are always comments about how no one can ever keep them alive. We deceivingly think they are cacti and can live without water, but it’s not true. Well! Cassidy graciously appears on this week’s YouTube video talking about the basics of succulents and showing us how to make this beautiful succulent wall planter. Her tricks are ingenious!
