Mini Bath Revamp!

Pin It
Oh heeeeyyyyyy!

So this weekend I worked on a little of this and a little of that.  I didn't really have a room in mind per say, but I was just fresh off a visit to the dollar store, plus had bought some new yarn the other night, so I went to it.  

Yarn Wreath
I started working on this yarn wreath over a week ago, and finally finished it last night, once I decided that I wanted to go with grays and yellows (oh, and a little turquoise) in our bath off the basement living room:

Branches with Flowers
I gathered up some branches from my dead bush landscaping the other day in hopes of prettying them up.  Again, days later, I finally finished them (today).  I just hot glued on some existing yellow flowers I bought earlier in the year from the Hobbit Lobbit.

Fabric Wrapped Pots
Today, at Easter, my Mom sent me home with 4 ugly little flower pots that I didn't really need, but figured that I could wrap in fabric using Mod Podge.  So that's exactly what I did when I got home, see:

Yarn Flowers
Now, about those yarn flowers you see above.  They are super cute and beyond easy to make!  I picked up a little bag of styro balls at the dollar store (they came in an assortment of 3 sizes, about 8 to a bag) and simply wrapped yarn around them until they were totally covered.  Then I stuck the sharp end of a skewer stick up them (ha!), tied the arrangement how I wanted, and placed those babies in the pot.  Done.

The Big Reveal!
So....yarn wreath + branches with flowers + fabric wrapped pots + yarn flowers = a mini bath revamp!
Total Dollas Spent:  Maybe $10, with lots of supplies left over.

So there you have it.  I didn't do anything but add the pretties above; no priming, no painting, nothing!  It just goes to show you that a little accessorizing can go a LONG way!

Big Smile,
