Isaac and I moved into our apartment in late June, and one of the first things I did was start decorating. I hate seeing blank walls, and I’ll find any excuse to hang my paintings around our place. I tackled the living and dining rooms first, and loved how they turned out. But that’s where my inspiration fizzled. I decorated one of the walls in my bedroom, but had no idea what to do with the big empty space above our bed. When we first got married, we went cheap and just bought a simple bed frame off Amazon (I’m not kidding when I say we buy everything from there). I have wanted to make a headboard for a long time, but we don’t have the materials, tools or time we need to make one. And not having a headboard means there’s this huge blank area above our bed that has been in major need of some TLC.

I looked around at a ton of stores and online, but never found anything that caught my eye. That is, until recently when I visited a friend in our complex and fell in love with what she had done in her bedroom. All she had put above the bed was a simple wreath with eucalyptus leaves stuck in it, but I thought it was perfect. I knew right then and there that this idea would work perfectly in our bedroom! The leaves were a beautiful shade of sage that I knew would go so well with the color scheme we already had going on. And I am a huge fan of grapevine wreaths (which you can see in this and this tutorial!).

Once I had decided on making the wreath, I knew exactly what I wanted to go with it. A while ago I saw one of my friends on Instagram post a little DIY project she had made for her house and thought it was beautiful. I took her idea and ran with it, and I’m so glad I did! I love how the two frames help balance out the room on the wall, and the fact that I can exchange the cards with new ones when I want. So cool, right? For right now I decided to write the lyrics from my favorite hymn in one, and one of Isaac’s favorite verses in the other.

I’ve already thought of so many ways to decorate this little space for Christmas (IT’S SO CLOSE GUYS!). My next area to tackle: the bathroom. Any suggestions??

So tell me, friends… : )
Is there a space in your house that you just don’t know how to decorate?
What are your favorite DIY projects you’ve made for your home?

Eucalyptus Grapevine Wreath

Grapevine wreath (24″)
1 bunch eucalyptus leaves
1 hook

Carefully begin sticking the stems of the eucalyptus leaves into the wreath.
Weave any loose ends through the wreath to stay in place. 
Screw the hook in where you want to hang the wreath. Firmly secure the wreath in the hook, and admire your handiwork! 

Bible Verse Frames

2 frames (try to get ones that are the same size- mine were 16×20)
Sand paper
Wood stain (I used antique white)
Staple gun or 6 small tack nails and a hammer
24 Mini clothespins
24 Index cards or watercolor paper cut into 2×4 inch rectangles

Sand the frame until the original paint/lacquer is removed. 
Stain the frame according to your stain’s instructions. I used an antique white color, but this would have been gorgeous with a dark brown as well! 
If using a staple gun: Cut three pieces of twine to be a little longer than the width of the frame (it will pull down with the weight of the cards and clothespins). Tie knots at both ends of the twine, then staple into the back of the frame, or inside of the frame if it’s too thin. Repeat with the other two pieces of twine. 
If using tack nails and a hammer: Hammer in a tack nail to the inside or back of the frame on both sides. Tie one end of the twine around one of the nails. Repeat on the other side. Trim the end of the twine once firmly secured. Repeat with the other two pieces of twine. 
Write your verse, lyrics, etc. on the index cards or watercolor paper (I did about one word per card). Clip to the twine with the clothespins and voila! Your frames are finished.
