DIY Floral Home Decor Ideas You Can Make with a Printer

Brought to you by Canon PIXMA and TheCO.

It’s no secret that I love flowers, and I especially love using them in home decor. There’s something so beautiful and fresh about bringing the outdoors in! My favourite floral home decor accents are the ones I can make myself. Pillows and curtains are some of my favourite floral decor DIYs, but today I wanted to share with you some ideas that are even more unique. What makes these special? They’re all made with the help of your inkjet printer! I made these floral wood slice coasters, this vintage seed packet banner, and this pretty decoupaged storage box with my Canon PIXMA printer and some simple crafting supplies. Let me show you how to make these unique and beautiful floral DIYs!Continue reading

Make Silver Leaf Paper Trees for Christmas Tabletop Decor #12MonthsofDIY

Paper is one of my favourite craft mediums to work with. It’s such an inexpensive material, and if you use some creativity there are SO many beautiful things you can make with paper! Some of my favourite paper crafts for the holiday season are book page wreaths, Christmas tree ornaments, and Christmas tree cones. This year, I decided to take paper cone Christmas trees to a whole new level and cover them with some gorgeous, sparkling silver leaf. The result are some beautiful silver leafed paper trees that look lovely as Christmas tabletop decor. Let me show you how easy it is to make these, and make sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to see what my blogging friends have made with paper this month.Continue reading

A Brown Paper Fall Wreath from My Recycling Bin

Fall is my favourite season. I love the crisp air, the beautiful colours of the leaves, sipping hot coffee and starting new things (Little C starts kindergarten in a couple of weeks!). I wanted to make a Fall wreath to display over the chalkboard on our living room wall, but I didn’t want to spend any money. One thing I like about not being filthy rich? You learn to make do with what you have, and it’s a great creative exercise!

With a few materials from my recycling bin and my scrap fabric stash, I made this pretty kraft paper and burlap Fall wreath that I now have hanging in our living room. It was a complete experiment, but I’m pleasantly surprised with how pretty it turned out to be. I based it off of the popular book page wreath (I used this tutorial as my inspiration), but I used an old roll of kraft paper cut into rectangles and a DIY wreath form instead. Continue reading

Make DIY Scrapbook Paper Christmas Tree Cones

The most gorgeous book of scrapbook paper was waiting for me at my last Michael’s trip. I don’t actually scrapbook at all anymore (it’s soooo time consuming), but I knew I had to snatch up this glittery, colourful book of awesomeness.

One idea I had for all of this lovely, Christmasy paper was to make simple “Christmas tree cones” for our mantel decor.Continue reading
