fairy-lights

carton-flower-cutout

-Save different colored egg cartons

-separate cup using a scissors

-trim the edges of each cup to form flower petals

-Starting at the cup opening, make a short slit into each side of the cup. Then simply insert one LED bulb into each “flower”. Using a one-hole paper punch, make decorative holes on the flowers. See photos for pattern ideas, or invent your own!

English Country Cottage

hg_c3078_m2

By Maya Millar

How to Get the Look

  • Use pale paint colours — walls can be white, cream or eggshell to make the room appear larger, or try soft shades of blue, yellow and sage green.
  • The English Country Cottage is the perfect decor aesthetic if your home has flooring made of pine, oak, or maple. Leave them bare, with runners or area rugs to protect only the high-traffic areas.
  • Decorate your windows with pretty lace curtains or a floral fabric.
  • This design style is all about being easy to care for, so a slip-covered, oversize sofa is a must. Try a fabric in a cabbage rose print, where the colour is picked up in other details in the room.
  • Adorn your walls with framed botanical prints, animals or historical events.
  • Have a bay window? What could be a more perfect place to build a window seat to indulge in the most British of traditions — a cup of tea?
  • Looking for a weekend project that will completely transform a room into an English Country Cottage? Install beaded board to the walls. This look, often used in kitchens and bathrooms, is clean, casual and timeless.
  • Every proper English Country Cottage has a large freestanding cupboard,  handy both for storage and to display treasured collections.
  • The exterior is as important as the interior when trying to achieve an English Country Cottage look. The garden should feel as carefree as the aesthetic indoors — plant bursts of colourful blooms, and roses or ivy to climb trellises and arbors. Don’t forget to furnish the garden with a wrought-iron garden bench and perhaps even birdhouse.

peace!

Crisscross Rack

i got this from Martha’s organizing tip of the day..

This wall rack consists of crisscrossed lengths of 1 1/8-inch-wide lattice, held together with glue and Shaker-style pegs in all but the center joint.

Tools and Materials
11 strips of 1 1/8 inch lattice (see list below)
Spring or A clamps
Drill with 1/2-inch bit
Wood glue
14 Shaker-style wooden pegs

Lattice
Cut and label the following pieces of 1 1/8-inch lattice:
Four 53 1/2-inch-long pieces (use a pencil to number them 1, 2, 10, and 11)
Two 40-inch-long pieces (number them 4 and 5)
Three 55-inch-long pieces (number them 3, 6, and 7)
Two 38-inch-long pieces (number them 8 and 9)

———

Criss-Cross Rack How-To
After you have cut your lattice strips and before securing all the joints and drilling holes, mark each piece of lattice 4 inches from each end. Stack the wood loosely in the shape of the rack; all ends should overlap each other by 4 inches.

1. Use the lattice to create an isosceles triangle: Diagonally place strip 1 as the left side, then strip 2 as the right side. Remember, the tips should extend 4 inches beyond the joint.
2. To create the bottom of the large triangle, lay strip 3 on top horizontally.
3. Use strips 4 and 5 to create an X on top of the triangle; each of the top ends of the X should overlap the triangle sides 9 1/2 inches below the triangle point.
4. Lay strip 6 horizontally across center of the X.
5. Lay strip 7 horizontally across the top of the X, crossing the other pieces where the X meets the large triangle.
6. Lay strips 8 and 9 vertically to make sides of rack.
7. With strip 7 as the bottom side, diagonally lay strips 10 and 11 to create an inverted triangle (this will also make a diamond in the center of both triangles).

As you align each joint, clamp it with a spring or A clamp; leave it clamped until the entire rack is laid out and all joints are clamped. Then drill a hole through all layers of wood at each joint, except the very center joint. Apply glue to either side of every hole; apply glue to the end and around the bottom of each peg, and insert one into each hole. If glued strips won’t stay together, reclamp the joint. Let glue dry for 30 minutes; do not put stress on the joints for another 12 hours.

Hang in a fashion appropriate to your wall type.
