Crème de la Craft

I share my unique DIY tutorials to encourage others to create. With projects featured on hundreds of sites, my blog is a place for anyone who enjoys creativity and is looking for DIY inspiration. It focuses on simple DIY projects made from everyday objects. I love repurposing old items into my own unique treasures inspired by some of today’s latest trends in home, design and fashion. The crafting gene has followed me from birth, to my first job as an arts and crafts instructor, to where I am today...still crafting strong.

My process is pretty simple: (1) research (2) inspiration (3) create. And since the "key" ingredient (see what I did there?) to finding inspiration is the research phase, I partnered with Bing for a behind-the-scenes look at how I came up with today's project! ...more

5 Minute DIY: Hanging Vases from Ornaments

The holidays might be over, but that doesn't mean we can't put our Christmas decorations to use!

I think these would also make great decorations for parties, bridal showers, baby showers and outdoor weddings ....more
