Make Faux Bois Typrography Art

Make Faux Bois Typography Art

I love a good typography art project, and these woodgrain monogram letters are so simple and cute! Carissa at Creative Green Living used an inexpensive blank monogram letter and peel and stick stencils to create this glittery faux bois effect. You could make this project even more budget-friendly by cutting your own monogram letter out of an old cardboard box instead of buying a blank. Wouldn’t this look sweet hanging up in your kid’s room?

Upcycled Cat Hammock

Make a Cat Hammock from an Old Towel

Don’t these cats look cozy in their little hammocks? You can sew these up for the cats in your life or make them to donate to your local animal rescue! Squidoo user (Squidooer?) Pam Irie opted for the latter, and she shares her detailed tutorial in case you want to do the same thing! I love how these cat hammocks give your kitty an elevated place to sleep. I don’t know about your cats, but mine prefer being up high, so they can survey their kingdom.

Rue Daily has a beautiful slideshow that goes through refurbishing a flea market chair to take it from worn and dated to hip and modern.
