As I was scrolling through all of the links from last weeks party,
a few crafty home decor ideas commanded my attention.
I mean crafty in a way that these projects are full of charm and elegance.
What I’m not talking about is 35 ways to make things out of popsicle sticks.
or child-centric pilgrims and Indians made out of toilet paper roll projects.
That’s not to say I shun those types of projects
or wouldn’t enjoy doing them with my niece and nephew because I would.
What I’m talking about today are grown-up crafting ideas!
Besides being fun little DIY’s and a way to exercise creative energy,
there is something charming about handmade decor.
Just a few touches here and there
has the ability to give a room a bit of interest and some personality.
Not to mention handcrafted decor is original works of art that often help get the conversation moving along.
Let’s have a look at what our featured bloggers cleverly designed
and shared with us at last weeks Thursday Favorite Things party.
