Happy Monday to you! I'm deeming this week "DIY Week" on House by Hoff! Each day I'll be bringing you a DIY holiday project! Since the longest painting project ever painting project is still going on in my house, I can't really decorate for the holidays yet. Boooooo! Oh well! I'm hoping that by the end of the week all of the painting will be done and I can put up my tree, decorate my mantel, add some wreaths here, a nativity scene there, etc., etc. To scratch my Christmas itch, (did that ...

Today I am sharing with you the painting our tired tiles received. The painting continues today! Everything is going great, but it is taking longer than expected.

I swallowed one big lump while we were singing happy birthday, but other than that kept it together! Ok, now to those decorations! Let's start with the centerpiece of the party (besides the birthday girl herself, of course) the cupcake ... Read More about Makin’ One Look Good!!!!
My glue gun is practically permanently plugged into the wall as party day approaches! Yesterday's project was actually just finishing up a wreath that I started a long time ago. I wrapped this Styrofoam wreath with yarn almost a year ago with intentions of making a nursery decoration out of it. It never made it to completion.By simply adding some tissue paper flowers and the wooden 1, it became a birthday wreath! I found the wooden 1 at Michael's and spray painted it "Blue Ocean Breeze" by ... Read More about Yarn Wrapped Birthday Wreath
