Quick and easy New Year’s Eve treat cone

Looking for something fun to give your guests on New Year’s Eve, but don’t want to spend too much time or effort? This quick and easy cone is for you!

New year cone

Fill it with favorite candy, some sparklers and poppers, and you are set to ring in the new year at midnight. The size of the paper will determine how much you can fit in, I used a small origami paper, so I couldn’t fit in much, but a larger paper could hold tons of fun!

I simply rolled it to a cone shape, and taped the edge with glitter tape. I also used a metallic pen to write 2015 on the paper. It’s a really easy, but fun, way to surprise your guests! I mean, who wouldn’t love their own cone of candy and fireworks to welcome the new year?!

Easy DIY Thanksgiving Decor

I am so excited to share this easy Thanksgiving decor idea! Have you heard of Wallternatives? They are fabric decals that you can use to quickly and simply change a room! And there are so many fun choices too!

After taking down our Halloween decor, our living room was looking pretty sad and boring. Luckily I had the adorable Black and White Fall Phrases Removable Wall Decal Set to spruce things up! Here’s the before photo:

Thanksgiving Wallternatives

Isn’t this fun? It took me less than 10 mins to put up the decals, and they were so nice to work with. Because they are fabric, they have a really nice feeling to them. I love how simple they were to get positioned too, because they peeled off and re-stuck easily (which is good because it’s not always going to line up just right on the first try)!

This is the large size of the Thanksgiving Phrases pack, which also comes in a colorful version. I liked the look and feeling of the chalkboard style, especially with the pops of color from our fall flowers.

There are also fun options for Christmas, and of course, ideas for all year too. In fact, there are even actual chalkboard options. How fun is that?

It’s so fun to walk into the room now! And it was just so easy to do. Big thanks to Wallternatives for providing my decals for this project. I can’t wait to use some again!

The reveal, thank you IKEA!

It might not seem like much, but this was a much needed office spruce up. You might remember the before and the story behind it. Here is the before photo:


And here is the after:


Small changes, but such a big difference! The entire wall is now glorious storage! In fact, did you notice the best part? Empty space!!! Oh what a luxury that is.

IKEA Draper was kind enough to provide the bookshelves, and the adorable green storage bins, for my project.

This is the first time I have put together any IKEA furniture. I have to admit, I was a little scared at first because I have heard that it can be hard. It totally wasn’t! They were the easiest bookshelves I have ever put together (and I have put together quiet a few from other brands). The instructions were easy to follow, and all the hardware comes with it. Would I use IKEA furniture again for a project? You bet!

I’m so thrilled to have things in my office not only looking nice, but also functioning well. It’s such an amazing feeling to have a place to put everything (with space left over even)! And the green bins have fast become my favorite for their ability to store loose items. They really hide the mess.

Thank you IKEA!

Side note: It can be funny the things you discover when you work on a space that is going to be blogged about. Something I learned was that my office is hard to photograph, it’s narrow and surprisingly very dark, even in the lightest parts of the day.
