Quick, easy, fun, and cheap home decor items.

It’s a crazy Tuesday evening here in the ‘ho.  Rain, hail, thunder, lightning, rainbows, smoke, fires, sirens, winds….just nuts.  At least it’s not terribly hot this evening.  But I hear it’s supposed to get back up there the rest of the week.  Awesome.  {sarcasm}

So how about some super simple, super easy, super quick, and super cheap little home crafties?  Up first is a banner I made with a few of these little BasicGrey pocket assortment sets that I got from Craft Junction.  This banner was ridiculously easy to make.  Put together the folders, run Glue Dots® on the back of the inserts and secure them in place how you want them to be in the pocket, punch holes, thread vintage ribbon, and hang.

I received this fun popcorn box from Kristin in the June Cara Box exchange.
(You can sign up for August if you are interested – I highly recommend this fun chick-to-chick gift exchange.)
Anyway.  The popcorn box has been sitting on my craft table, and when we got home from vacation I noticed that the heat had killed a lot of my roses so I wanted to salvage what few that I could.  So I wrapped some vintage ribbon around the box, adhered with more Glue Dots®, punched some hearts out of vintage book paper, poked a pretty pin through the hearts and attached to my bow, and we’ve got a cheapee vase for what’s left of our roses.
