DIY Floating and Glowing Witch Hats for the Front Porch

How to make these easy and fun floating witch hats for your front porch or inside! I've wanted to make these cute DIY "floating" luminary witch hats for our porch for years! They turned out to be a really easy way to add some cute Halloween decorations to our front porch, but you could hang them anywhere for easy decor. I tried a couple methods of creating these hanging hats with two lighting options, and I'll share both here. Both are very simple, but one is so simple it only take a couple minutes to create each witch hat luminary.  I started with these inexpensive black witch hats:  This post may contain affiliate links for your convenience.  See my  policies and disclosure page  for more information.    This witch hat set came with 12 hats and a bunch of cute plastic bat cutouts as well. (This set has six hats  if you don't need as many.)  My first tutorial uses LED votives that operate on a timer -- once you turn them on, they'll run for a certain amount



How to Create a Colorful and Welcoming Fall Front Porch!

How to Create a Colorful and Welcoming Fall Front Porch!

My colorful fall porch decor with both DIY and store-bought finds. Easy fall front porch ideas you can add today! We never had much of a front porch until we moved into this home, and I've had a blast dressing it up for the different seasons! It's not huge, but just big enough to add some fun touches.  I think fall decor looks particularly cute on our front porch. :) Decorating for autumn out front always seems to up our curb appeal...it's so welcoming.  I usually go nuts with mums this time of year, but I missed the local sale where I get them for super cheap. So I scaled back on those and added some fun autumn finds from Big Lots instead.  I've been lucky enough to work with Big Lots this year and will continue to share some of their decor items throughout the year. (You can see how I organized our messy coat closet here !) I tried to pull in more colors beyond the traditional orange and brown this year. I'm loving the green accents I added the fall porch palette.

I've been reorganizing a few spaces in our kitchen as I work on the new pantry , and I'm loving how much more functional they've become!  I was working on a spice drawer that I'll share in a minute, but noticed that every time I shut the drawer, the organized containers slid all over and got out of order.  YES, I alphabetized them. :)  I thought about using a liner to keep them from moving around, but I've found that it still slides around inside the drawer. I also wanted to separate some of the spices into sections, so I needed a different solution.   I recently shared a few ways to keep things from sliding around  both vertica

You can get a fresh look anywhere you want a tile accent with this easy DIY project!  These peel and stick wall tiles I used on our pantry backsplash were a HUGE timesaver. The adhesive on the back of these faux stone tiles make it easy and quick to install.  I've been moving along on the pantry turned "butler's" pantry makeover I shared with you last week! I was annoyed with the piles of stuff from the pantry laying all over our mud/laundry room, so I've been motivated to get this done quicker than usual. :) I got the cabinets installed first (check out my tips on installing cabinets here ) and then installed the butcher block countertop before starting the tile.  You'll want to know where your counter stops before installing the tile, no matter what kind of tile you're using.  If you read my pantry plan post (say that three times fast)



Three Best Brass Spray Paints for DIY Makeovers

Three Best Brass Spray Paints for DIY Makeovers

Comparing six metallic brass and gold spray paints to find the perfect brass finish, and my top three picks! Brass and gold finishes have been back in style in a big way for years. They aren't going anywhere soon!  I'm talking about the warmer, more varied brass tones that look great on light fixtures and accessories by the way, not the super shiny brass that many of us have had on our door knobs or light fixtures over the years. :) I was on a rampage in our last house to get rid of the shiny brass fixtures. I actually don't mind that look as much now, but the warmer brass tones feel more realistic for sure.  I've wanted to compare some brass and gold spray paints for awhile, so over the past couple of months I've gathered six metallic spray paint options:  From left to right we have:   Rust-oleum Universal Metallic Pure Gold Rust-oleum Universal Metallic Sunlit Brass Rust-oleum Metallic Gold in bright and shiny finish Rust-oleum Metallic Warm Gold Rust-oleum Metall
