DIY Stamped Wine Tags



'Tis the season for PARTIES! Here's another nearly wordless Wednesday on how to use PSA Essential Stamps to create wine tags for nearly every holiday and celebration on your calendar!

DIY Wine Markers or Tags

I received product in exchange for this post. The opinions expressed are 100% my own. 

There are two parts to most PSA Essential Peel and Stick stamps, the main image and a ring. Using the ring, you can create a handful of colorful wine tags. These aren't just a practical way to keep everyone's drink straight, it also adds a festive touch to any party!

DIY Wine Markers

All you need to do is: 

Stamp your paper.

Cut out your stamps.

Hole punch the middle (You may need to punch more than once 
depending on how large your wine stems are.)

Snip the paper.

Optional: You could always leave a pen handy for adding names 
if you want to keep a specific color palette.

What kind of parties will you be hosting in 2016?

Turn Broken Karate Boards into a Coat Rack


Turn Karate Boards into a Coat Rack

Two kids taking Karate* for two years means a pretty hefty stack of broken boards and you know there's no way I can just throw them out. So while I waited for creative inspiration to strike the pile grew and grew. 

The best ideas are born out of necessity. We have no foyer, coat stand, or hall closet; so when people visit, or you know...it's coat season, jackets, bags, and coats get thrown over the back of chairs until our living room looks like Grandma's bed at Christmas! 

We'd just painted our hallway so all the pictures and mirrors had been taken down. Looking at it's stark whiteness inspiration finally hit! Obviously we needed coat racks, and since we had a hodge podge of hooks why not combine it with a hodge podge of wooded boards? 

Here's how we put it all together!

DIY Holiday Tissue Paper


Sometimes it's more about the wrapping than the actual gift, am I right? Sure bows and ribbons are nice but there's something about tissue paper that makes a gift extra special to me.
