DIY Marquee Board

IMG_0861I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with all your family and friends!  I am a bit bummed that the holiday season is already over.  I absolutely love the feeling of it all.  I am aware of how much I have been slacking and the lack of fashion posts and I am hoping that 2014 can be the year of overhaul.  I need to learn how to use the darn tripod!

I had been given the opportunity to be a Darby Smart Editor*.  Every month for a year I will be receiving DIY projects which I will be documenting on my blog.  I absolutely love doing DIY and arts and crafts and this is a great box subscription that will let you try your hand in it.

For the month of December, it was a DIY Marquee Board which you can hang or place anywhere you like and it could even be used for the upcoming New Years!

DIY Vase Decor

photo(51)Upon arriving at my aunt’s house, I simply relaxed on the couch, watching some tv.  She soon arrived upstairs with some cute flowers and set them in this vase. I thought it was really cute and I soon found out that she had decorated it herself, which gave it a beautiful unique look.  I think it went very well with the “flowers” which are in fact a type of dry grass.

Here is what you will need:

  • Vase
  • Craft Glue
  • Beads
  • Flowers


It’s a fun and easy DIY.  You apply the glue to the vase and apply the beads.  My aunt applied a few with something that had a point but when it came to the smaller beads she pressed them all against the glass.  You can really go anyway you want with this and even make a spiral or floral design.

It’s also relatively inexpensive going from $0-10 if you have a vase lying around and with summer coming closer the flowers and plants are abundant.  You could find most of the supplies at a local craft store or dollar store.
