Some Stuff I “Need” To Try (Crafts Edition)

As y’all know, my addiction to Pinterest is real, and last week we explored some food I’m looking forward to recipe testing soon. So, I figured this week we’d do the crafts version! By the way, y’all can find my Pinterest here. Without further ado, here are a few things I plan to try soon from Pinterest in the area of getting crafty.

1) Texas Lilly Inspired Painting:
I’m shocked I hadn’t found this already, but I definitely need to add it to my gallery wall in my room soon! Look how pretty it is! I mean, I know I’m biased, but who doesn’t love bluebonnets? Really now. I suppose you could also adapt it to the state you hold dear, but mine will definitely look a whole lot like this one. Born in Texas = Always a Texan! By the way, there’s no tutorial on it. The pin just links to the picture. See?  It doesn’t look too hard. . . maybe I’ll give it a go sometime in the next couple weeks.


2) The Granny Bobble Spiral Square:
I envision this as a fantastic fall project, and when you finish it; it’ll keep you warm through the winter. I’m also digging these colors! So pretty together. Also reminds me of the colors of this place, but no time for froyo right now! Find the picture and tutorial here and the original pin here.


3) Tassel Garlands:
I think these would be perfect trim for my desk in my room. Such a fun addition, right? Original pin here. Tutorial and picture here.


4) Paint Chip Calendar:
I’m a big fan of dry erase calendars and of color. This combines my obsessive organizer and color lover beautifully, hence why I “NEED” to make it. 😉 No tutorial, but you can find the picture here. Original pin here. It looks fairly simple. Maybe I’ll do a tutorial.


5) Painted Pumpkins:
What kind of crafty October post would this be if I didn’t mention pumpkins!? Well, now I have. I’m LOVING this Lilly Pulitzer-inspired one at the moment, but still need to decide if that’s THE style I’m doing for my pumpkin this fall. 🙂 By the way, the picture is as in depth as the “how to” gets. Original pin here. Picture and “how to” here.


Well, that’s all for today, y’all! Hope you found a couple bits of crafty inspiration!

Would y’all want a tutorial on the paint chip calendar? Let me know in the comments! 😉

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!!
