Quick breakfasts don’t have to be limited to cereal and Pot Tarts. These easy homemade pumpkin spice donuts are a delicious grab and go breakfast!

After our grocery freeze earlier this year I’ve been trying to buy only food needed for our meal plan. It has been fantastic because it means less food waste. (If you haven’t tried a grocery freeze yet, you should totally check it out.) This new method of shopping has a small downside. Earlier this week we still had one day until grocery day and we were out of breakfast food. Instead of running out to buy something I decided to surprise the kids with donuts. Of course, in full pumpkin mode still, these easy homemade pumpkin spice donuts were created using staples we already had.

DIY Wooden Geometric Fox Wall Art

This week we are continuing to move forward with the boys room makeover. The kids love seeing it all start to come together. I am also super excited because the storage piece I ordered has arrived, as well. Of course, you know that I have to tweak it some. That is just what a chronic DIY-er does. The storage post will be coming your way soon. Today, however, as promised we are making this awesome DIY wooden geometric fox wall art. It is inspired by the metal wall art available at Hobby Lobby but I wanted to create something a little more rustic.

Materials

  • Collected Sticks
  • Laminated Mat or Parchment Paper
  • Black Washable Marker
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Cutting Mat
  • Utility Knife

Step 1

First, bake your collected sticks in the oven at 250ºF for 1-2 hours.

Tip:

  • You can place them straight on the oven rack.

Step 2

Let the sticks cool before working with them.

Step 3

While your sticks cool, pull out your laminated mat.

Tips:

  • Parchment paper will be easy to pull off of your glued sticks but you will have to get a new sheet to draw your fox on if you mess up.
  • The laminated mat is more tedious to remove the artwork from but you can wash off any drawing mistakes you make with the marker.

Step 4

Next, draw the bottom of your fox face as pictured.

Step 5

Continue drawing the outline of your fox face and the ears.

Tip:

  • Make sure your lines are straight. You do not want any curved lines.

Step 6

Then fill in the interior lines, eyes, and nose of the fox.

Step 9

Next, start gluing the joints with that glue.

Step 10

Continue adding glue until all of your joints are secured.

Tips:

  • Some joints may need to be held together until the glue has begun to cool.
  • If your sticks are not straight it causes the joints not to line up well for gluing. Add small pieces of stick underneath that curved piece at the joints to strengthen the glue bonds.

Step 12

Add the eyes and nose then allow the glue to dry completely.

Step 13

Next, carefully remove the fox from your mat.

Tip:

  • I used the tiny spatula from this kit to get under the glue in some spots.

Step 14

Repair any areas that come apart or weaken during removal and let the glue dry

This DIY woodland explore artwork is super easy to make. With some paint and glue you will have a unique piece of décor for your children’s room.

Step 1

First, cover your stretched canvas with black acrylic paint.

Tip:

  • Don’t worry too much about painting the edges because they will be covered later in the project.

 

This DIY woodland explore artwork is super easy to make. With some paint and glue you will have a unique piece of décor for your children’s room.

Step 2

Next, use a ruler to draw 2 parallel lines that are 10 inches long and 3 inches apart.

Tip:

  • If you make a mistake, do not erase it. If you do then you will mess up the black background. Simply re-draw the lines correctly and we will fix mistakes later.

Step 3

Add triangles and lines at each end as pictured above step 2 to turn them into arrows.

Tip:

  • Again, do not erase any mistakes.

 

This DIY woodland explore artwork is super easy to make. With some paint and glue you will have a unique piece of décor for your children’s room.

Step 4

Draw the word “EXPLORE” centered above your arrows. (The picture already has green paint to show you the difference between the messed up area and corrected area.)

Tip:

  • This is an excellent example of not erasing your mistakes. The first time I drew “EXPLORE” it wasn’t centered so I had to re-do it.

 

This DIY woodland explore artwork is super easy to make. With some paint and glue you will have a unique piece of décor for your children’s room.

Step 5

Next, cover the pencil lines of the word “EXPLORE” with green paint.

Step 8

Allow all of your paint to dry completely.

Step 9

If necessary, add a second coat of green paint and allow it to dry.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.

Boys Dresser Makeover with Extra Storage

Have you ever taken on a project that kicked your butt? When you are planning a project the steps seem easy on paper. Of course, then you start making it and holy cow! It takes so much more time and energy than you expected. It can be discouraging. There is a silver lining, though. When you finally finish the project there is an amazing sense of accomplishment. That is exactly how I felt when I finally finished this boys dresser makeover with extra storage. The paint style took forever but the kids absolutely love it. Their reaction makes all of the hard work totally worth it.

Materials

  • Old Dresser
  • Flat Black Latex Paint
  • Flat Light Grey Paint
  • Small Paint Roller
  • Roll of Paper Towels
  • Hanging Jewelry Organizer (I got ours at Target)
  • Nails
  • Hammer
  • Small Basket
  • Command Strips

Step 1

First, remove all of the drawers from your dresser.

Step 2

Next, paint your dresser and drawers with your flat black paint and small paint roller.

Note:

  • Our dresser was already painted black years ago so we didn’t do this step but you will want to start with a black painted dresser to get the desired end result.

Step 3

After your dresser is black (and the paint has dried), begin adding your grey paint. Do this by dipping a crumpled paper towel into the paint and dabbing it onto your dresser.

Tips:

  • Don’t add too much paint at once. A small amount goes a long way.
  • This takes a long time but you don’t want to rush it.

Step 4

Continue the process in step 3 until your dresser and drawer faces are covered.

Step 5

Allow the paint to dry completely.

Step 6

Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you have the desired effect.

Note:

  • We did 3 coats on our dresser.

Step 7

Return all of the drawers to the dresser.

Step 8

Next, add the hanging organizer to the right side of the dresser by nailing the corners of it to the dresser.

Tips:

  • Make sure your nails are short. You don’t want the tips to affect the drawers on the inside.
  • If your dresser isn’t made of thick wood or you simply don’t want to permanently change it, attach your organizer with Command hooks or strips.

Step 9

Lastly, add a small basket to the left side of your dresser with heavy duty Command strips.

Tips:

  • Hang the basket a little above the mattress height of your child’s bed.
  • Your basket needs to be flat, not curved. Curved baskets can come away from the Command strips and/or the dresser.

Ideas for How to Use the Extra Storage

 

Ever taken on a project that kicked your butt? That is exactly how I felt finishing this boys dresser makeover with extra storage but it's totally worth it!

Hanging Jewelry Organizer

The hanging jewelry organizer is perfect for cars, figurines, and other small toys. The one that we got has loops at the bottom intended to hold scarves. These loops hold larger action figures. Slide the feet through and use the arms to keep them from sliding all of the way through.

Basket

Because the boys’ room is so small, we are removing the bedside table. Our oldest likes to read in bed, though, so we wanted him to have somewhere to put his book and headlamp. The basket is the perfect solution. It holds the items and we placed the dresser next to his bed for convenience. This leaves the last wall in the room free for toy storage.

Whew! Now that we have finally finished the boys dresser makeover with extra storage we can move on with this giant project. Next up are some of the pieces of wall art. These are going to be a lot more fun to create. I have to admit that I am thinking of adding stenciled numbers to the drawer faces. I know, I’m glutton for punishment. It wouldn’t take much time, however, and I think it would add a little extra design punch to the dresser. What do you think? Are stenciled numbers a good idea or not worth it? Let me know in the comments!

Having all of your mugs on display with this DIY coffee mug organizing rack will totally brighten up your mornings and you will have more cabinet space!

DIY Coffee Mug Organizing Rack

Coffee is an important part of my life. Just the smell of a fresh pot brewing instantly lifts my mood (any time of day, I might add). Because of this absolute love of coffee, one of the most difficult areas to de-clutter are my coffee mugs. I began collecting them on my travels many years ago in high school. They mean a lot to me and some are irreplaceable. That’s why it was a big deal when I took on decluttering this spring that I pared down my collection. I kept the ones that I simply couldn’t part with and decided that items that emotionally charged deserved to be displayed. Thus, this DIY coffee mug organizing rack idea was born.

One last tip I want to leave you with: Definitely hand this on the wall and don’t skimp on the Command Strips. I got impatient and wanted to test out my DIY coffee mug organizing rack. I loaded it up and leaned it against the wall behind our coffee pot. The next day, I walked past it, into the kitchen, and immediately heard loud crashing and glass breaking.

I knew before I had even seen it that the mug rack had fallen. I saw the shattered mugs that meant so much to me and wept. Thankfully, not all of my mugs were on it yet. Once I hung the organizer, I tested it by pulling down on it with all of my strength. It didn’t budge so I felt very confident. It has now been hanging for 3 weeks with mugs on it and no more incidents.
