DIY Colorful Christmas Brush Bottle Trees

Colorful Christmas Trees are easy to make using brush bottle trees aka sisal trees. You can dye them any shade or color that you can find in the store. Such a fun way to add bright colors to Christmas Decoration.

Christmas is such a magical and wonderful time of year. So much festivities and so many fun things to do.

I have always loved the decorations. But, I’ve toned it down a few years ago because I’ve either been pregnant or just had a new baby and so my energy level is low and can make me a little Grinch-y. But as my kids have gotten older, their Christmas spirit is contagious and I have started doing more because of them. So with some trees from JOANN, I decided to make some colorful trees.

I guess you could say that this year is the year of wreaths. I made a spring wreath, summer wreath, a fall wreath and now it's time for a Christmas wreath. I'm no wreath expert or a therapist, but I feel like wreath making would make for a great creative therapy. Just think about it, you could talk and make a wreath all in the time of a 30 minute session. 

How to create a Living room and Playroom

Here are a few tips on how to create a play room and a living room in the same space. This post in partnership with Tee Pee Joy, all opinions and words are my own.

Toys, I love them and hate them at the same time. I love that my kids love them, but I hate them all over the place. 

We live in a house that has a front living room which then it leads right into the kitchen and into a smaller living area. The upstairs are only bedrooms which are considerably small. We decided not to keep toys in their rooms because of the small space and the distraction it was for them when it was time for bed. (see our DIY play kitchen here)

I shared in July the Unicorn Hobby horse that I made for my little girl for her birthday. Since I had some of this fun colorful faux fur left over, I had to make her a unicorn sweatshirt to go with it.

I figured since I have made for my boys a shark sweatshirt dress up and a dinosaur hoodie costume that I could easily make a unicorn hoodie. I knew that she would be stoked especially with this colorful faux fur

DIY Princess Poppy Dress Homemade Costume
Last year, my little girl was really into trolls. So it was a no brainer that she would pick Princess Poppy for her costume. I decided last minute to be a troll with her, which was a really easy costume to quickly pull together because of a few items in my closet and some temporary spray hair color.

Halloween soap eyeballs and bones DIY
My kiddos are obsessed with all things scary for Halloween, me on the other hand would rather just keep it all about pumpkins and happiness with some Harry Potter thrown in. However, I’ve compromised a little with having vinyl bats on our walls and vinyl spiders. Those don’t seem to scary for me. My husband likes to tease me and come home with really scary decorations just for me. This year, I decided it’d be fun to do some eyeball and bone soap. Not too scary for me and still enough Halloween spookiness for my kids.

Modern colorful pumpkin wreath fall decor


What kind of fall decorator are you? traditional colors or more non-traditional? I love the traditional, but the past couple years I’ve been doing a more non-traditional. Like scouring all stores for various small shaped pumpkins and then spray painting them all the rainbow colors. My kids ask me every time I go spray painting them colors other than orange : ). I just can’t help it. I absolutely love the changing of the fall leaves and feel like the burst of vibrate yellows, oranges and red is the last bit of hope before the darkness of winter sets in.

This post is a little different from most of my posts on here, but I spent so much time creating these flashcards I felt I needed to share them with those who might also want some. And if you have no idea who these people are, I invite you to keep reading to learn a little about them and also learn a little more about me.

First off, I belong the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is a big part of who I am and why I do what I do on a daily basis. I most definitely am not a perfect example of how a Latter-Day saint, but that is one thing I love about being a Latter Day Saint. We are taught to strive to be the best person we are capable of being and if we have a rough day, we can try again the next day, and the next, etc…This philosophy has totally influenced my creative endeavors; if I mess up on a craft or a project, I might get discouraged but I know I can try again and keep working at it. I’m far from being a perfectionist, but I keep striving every day and slowly I hope that I am getting better.
