front porch love

I’ve been neglecting my front porch since we moved here, partly because I can’t keep a plant alive, my neighbor says I have bad hands…

With Easter coming soon, I decided to give my porch some love.

I’ve had a plain grape vine wreath already on my door and I just added some branches with eggs that I got from Michael’s and tied it on with some twine. The whole project I made from Michael’s.

Then I got a pretty Jasmine plant and a tin watering can. I added a chalkboard vinyl sticker to the can for a welcome sign. The rubber mat is from Target, it was black so I spray painted it white and roughed it up with sand paper for a more rustic look.

Im pretty happy with how it came out and I didn’t spend much money. The Jasmine smells so good and I just hope I can keep it alive!!

DIY salt & pepper shakers

My house is an endless project, always adding and changing. I don’t believe in decorating all at one time. I feel that to create a great space it takes time collecting pieces until it all comes together. Sometimes it never comes together because I decide to change it up! Drives my husband crazy, but he just doesn’t understand 😉 I’ve been needing a house project and surfed Pinterest until I found the perfect one. I think Pinterest needs a support group because one can get addicted!

I was in need of some cute S&P shakers and found a DIY that some one did so I decided to give it a go and change it up to fit my homes style. It was so easy! I did this project in 5 minutes and it only cost me around $5. Score!

I got everything at Hobby Lobby. Most of the things there are usually on sale or you can use a 40% off coupon that you can find online.

All you do is hammer small holes into the top of the jar cap with a nail and add vinyl chalk board labels to the front. You can also paint the jars with acrylic paint and distress them with sand paper for a shabby chic look. Add salt and pepper and you’re ready to season with style 🙂

I think it turned out really cute and is a perfect addition to my table décor.
