 Are you thinking about how to brighten up your front door? To make your front entrance inviting and stylish? Like many in the UK we have a UPVC front door. UPVC windows and doors are great for insulation, keeping the heat in and reducing heating bills but a white door can be a little nondescript. Thankfully this is easy to change with easy DIY wreath ideas. Today I am on a mission to add a splash of personality to our entrance. Firstly I have added plant pots filled with flowers – this immediately brightens up the entrance. Secondly, I am thinking about upcycled DIY wreaths – until doing a little research I thought a wreath and UPVC were not compatible but I am delighted to be proven wrong.  How to hang a DIY wreath on a UPVC door There are several ways in which you can hang a wreath, if it is for a few weeks on the run up to Christmas you can use a wreath hanger, these hang over the which is designed to bounce back. In the long term, I would be worried about compressing the but for a few weeks this should be fine the is […]

I have been experimenting with making a doormat using old jeans – I am rather fortunate in that I have a rather large stash of jeans. My kind friends always pass them my way. There are many pairs in my stash where I have already used the legs which I have kept for the waistbands and pockets. This DIY doormat makes full use of these denim pockets. I have designed the doormat for our patio door which leads from our dining room into the garden, now it is spring our guinea pig has moved outside so the door is in constant use as we go in and out to feed her. The laminate floor can become rather dirty. The beauty of making your own doormat is you can make to the size which suits you – this doormat is 27.5″ by 16″ fitting perfectly between the back door and our dining room table.

What can you make with glass bottles? Today I am sharing two creative things to do with glass bottles. Why? Amazingly each household uses five hundred glass bottles per year with an average only one in six being recycled… This fact astounds me. Recycling one glass bottle powers a computer for 25 minutes. Recycling is fabulous but how about reusing this is even better for the environment.  We have been collecting our glass bottles, ready to repurposed and saved from the recycling bin. The all-important question what to do with them? My husband recently invested in a glass bottle cutter, ready to have a play and see what can be made. Cutting the bottles in half has provided vases or drinking glasses – personally, despite the rigorous sanding, I am going for the safer option as vases! The vases would make stunning centrepiece down a trestle table, or as decor for wedding tables. But what about the neck end of the bottle?? What purpose can these be put to? My husband made this stunning cacti planter for me with our children as a DIY Mother’s Day gift – I could not be more delighted with my Mothers day gift – […]
