with crunchy leaves season upon us, I wanted to share some of my favorite easy, non-cheesy Halloween DIY ideas. i love a good DIY, but nothing makes me more bummed than when I attempt one and it comes out looking like something I made when I was 12 during the Halloween day at school where everyone came in costumes and got to DGAF around all day gluing stuff and eating candy corn. so i thought i’d round up some of the web’s best DIY Halloween projects that are fun, quick, easy, and sophisticated spooky.

with spring in full swing, i'm diving deeper than ever into my houseplant obsession. i regularly stress dream about my fiddle leaf fig, and i'm not sure if i should be admitting that on the internet but it's true. plants have brightened up my house so much, and they're kind of like tattoos (strangely addicting) so once you start it's tough to stop. since the weather's getting warmer, i'm also getting ready to outfit my balcony with a few new plant adoptions, and i've been on the hunt for some fun, relatively easy ways to DIY some cool planters. luckily, the internet overfloweth with such ideas.

Buy or DIY: 8 Jewelry Storage Ideas That Aren't Ugly

in the midst of my new year closet cleanout kick, i've recently found that- like probably every chick ever- i own WAY. TOO. MUCH. JEWELRY. jewelry used to be the thing i'd add to my pile of stuff on the way to the register, because when it's inexpensive it feels pretty harmless. but the thing is- now i have tons of those cardboard multipacks of stud earrings still lying around, and the couple pairs that i didn't like as much as the others are still attached to the cardboard and just sitting there. it's driving me nuts and i decided it's time to control it. not just the earrings- ALL of it.

DIY To Try: Festive Advent Calendars

OMGGGG it's already that time of year. and with December only a few days away, i thought i'd round up some of my favorite advent calendar DIYs from around the web. whether you celebrate the advent season religiously or you just think it's fun to count down the days in december with chocolates and other fun little shit in bags and/or boxes, these are fun and look really cute. advent calendars were my favorite thing EVER when i was a kid- i always got one that had chocolates shaped like different woodland animals, and i had a weird reputation for remembering exactly what animals corresponded to what day at the end of the month. i was suuuuuper popular obviously.

DIY To Try: It's Cold Out, Make Your Walls A Sweater

it's officially cozy sweater weather out there, and today we're inviting you to share the chunky cable knit vibes with your walls. it seems like woven wall hangings have been all over the place for the past year, and they're such a cool (and easier to hang) alternative to framed art. i love that they can be super neutral and calming or punchy and loud and colorful. while there are definitely pages and pages of gorgeous ready made options floating around on Etsy, I feel like this is a very doable, non-scary project that doesn't involve power tools and would be way more fun to DIY.

DIY To Try: Up Your Pumpkin Game

well guys it's officially October, and that can only mean one thing: everyone's Pinterest feed overfloweth with ridiculously elaborate pumpkin decorating ideas. the last time i checked, decorating pumpkins involved laying down some newspaper, carving out a face that doesn't end up looking much like a face because wielding that knife thing is actually really hard, shoving a candle in it and calling it a day. turns out shit has gotten REAL since my pumpkin carving days- people are going all out.

Perfect Pair: Plants and Copper Accents

one of the things i love so much about design is discovering those color, texture, and pattern combinations that just totally MAKE a space. for me, one of my current favorite pairings has got to be the houseplant craze teaming up with the copper craze. they were just made for each other. the soft, natural texture of the green leaves paired with shiny rose gold metal accents just works. every time.

DIY To Try: 6 Phases Of The Moon Projects

well you guys it's officially MAY and that's super exciting. the sun's out, the days are longer, and Justin Timberlake himself even tweeted about it. though i'm personally a huge fan of these sunny days, the star of today's post (awful celestial pun intended) is the MOON. the moon has been having a moment for a really long time, but it's still very much in the spotlight and all over home decor. the geometric lunar shapes are super versatile and look great in a variety of materials, and i don't think they're going away anytime soon. i'm looking for a fun spring DIY project and currently loving these six relatively easy DIY phases of the moon ideas.

The Lazy B*tch's Guide To Valentine DIYs

if you guys haven't already noticed, i am a relatively lazy DIYer. don't get me wrong, i totally love a good DIY project, but i tend to stick to the two extreme ends of the spectrum. which is to say- i'm totally down to spend an entire weekend at home depot buying tons of supplies to make a sick new industrial coffee table from scratch, or i'm diving into something that's gonna take me about a glass of wine to complete. i don't do too well in that middle territory where a project involves a bunch of crazy steps just to create one pot holder, you know? so i figured with valentine's day already hovering in the near future (2017 you can sloooooow down now thanks) i'd share some of my fave easy ideas for fun DIY gifts.
