DIY Tissue Tassel Mobile for a Nursery

When I found out my very good friend Britany Simon (yes, the fabulous HGTV design star and killer interior designer) was expecting her first baby I knew that the nursery was going to be nothing but stellar. I saw this idea to use the tissue tassels as a mobile and asked Brit if I could use my DIY skills to make one for her little girl’s room, she happily agreed! The bold colors and pop of metallic (you wouldn’t expect anything less from a Britany Simon design) adds the perfect amount of glam & drama for the centerpiece of the room. I just love the way it turned out!

Remember the very first tutorial video I made, the tissue tassel garland!?! You can use this same technique to make your very own mobile. Just in case you don’t want to do it yourself, I’m happy to do it for you! Check out the custom listing on my Etsy store.

DIY: “I Love You to the Moon & Back” Nursery Artwork

There is some major baby fever right now! I have eight friends due by the end of the year, that means tons of baby showers in my future. I always like to get something off of the registry and also include something personalized. This week I’ll show you how to create simple artwork for the saying “I Love You to the Moon & Back.”

The best part is I have curated a kit so that you can easily replicate this craft at home, purchase it here. You can use the kit to create the artwork yourself, or give it to the mom-to-be as a gift.

Tips:

  • Use stickers if you don’t want to hand write the saying.
  • Use a coffee can or bowl if you don’t have a compass.

Don’t forget to share your photos of the crafts you have done on Instagram and tag @likehearted!!

DIY: Chevron Tray

I’m constantly looking for home decor accessories and believe this is the biggest challenge when it comes to styling any space. I saw this tray in its raw wood form and decided to transform it to fit the decor at my house. The tray serves a great piece to display jewelry and/or perfume. I’ve put together a kit of all the supplies I used so you can make this exact one at home, purchase it here. If you get the kit send me a pic of the finished product on instagram and tag @likehearted!
