Dorm Sweet Dorm

My roommate, Hannah and I are rooming together for the second time. This year we are living in the Phi Mu house! Here are some things that I made this summer that make it all the more homier..

  After!

All buttoned up

Finally, the time came to give my sweet little her basket! I made this button plaque a few days before the reveal. It turned out to be one of my favorite things that I made for her! Also, I used the buttons again to make this precious frame.

Make a wish!

There’s something about a homemade card that makes all the difference.. I made this card for one of my best friend’s 19th birthday!  First, I cut out squares of a wordsearch and crossword puzzle from the newspaper to make a cake and glued them on a blank notecard.Then, I added glitter candles and a touch of pink! This project was simple, quick, and really cute!                                                                    ImageImageImageImageImage

It’s the little things

Here are a few more quick and easy crafts that I have done.. P.S. these are all originals.

This was such an easy painting! I printed off a quatrefoil stencil and traced it on my canvas. Then, I painted the background and a fun pattern on the inside.

Can you guess what made the perfect little circles…? A toothpaste cap, who would have thought! This painting was super quick, and I added a wraphia bow to make it more homey!

Image

Last but not least, is this precious frame! I bought this wooden frame for $1.00 at Michaels. Then, I painted flowers and accented them with a silver Sharpie. For the inside, I typed up Phi Mu’s creed and printed it out on photo paper.

Sounds like a memory…

One thing I knew I had to make for my little was a memory box. At the end of my freshman year, my memory box was overflowing with letters and memories of my first year of college! I know one day I will love looking back through it… For this memory box, I decoupaged the whole box and lid with decorative napkins. Then, I hot-glued fabric and ribbon to the box. Finally, I hot-glued a pink bow.

Phi Mu letters

Every little has to have her sorority’s letters… But I decided to make ones that were more unique by painting them in Lilly Pulitzer’s “Getaway Garden” pattern. To make the “phi,” I glued an “I” to the back of an “O”. After that, I painted both letters navy blue, and then I free-handed the flowers. Finally, I added the lime green ribbon to hang the letters! Here’s the pattern that I followed…
