Have you ever tried Henna before? It was new to me! I've always wanted to try it, just never had the opportunity. When given the chance to try it from home, I couldn't resist! I knew my kids would love it, and they did!
Blanket ladders are one of my most favorite decor items and here is why. Not only are they functional, they are beautiful!! This last weekend Cassie and I taught a blanket ladder class at Pinners Conference in Utah. We promised a blanket ladder tutorial that our class attendees could call on if they ever decided to make one of their own.
What is Oly-Fun you ask? It is a non fray, durable thin fabric that almost feels like a thin canvas. It is sold by the company Fairfield World. You can buy it directly from their website for only a few dollars!!! It's THE BEST!!!!!
I got these nightstands for cheap a few years ago. I was just barely getting into DIY projects at this point...and I spray painted them black! They've always just looked "okay". I was done with "okay" and wanted to LOVE them. I wanted the Pantone color of the year, and Amy Howard has a one step paint that is very close! It is called Easy Street.

We are so excited to be participating in this Fall tablescape blog hop. There is so much inspiration to see. Visiting us from Mint Candy Designs? Welcome to Clover Lane!!
This fall has brought many new experiences and changes for our little family. Rex is finishing up his final year of his surgical residency, so the job hunting and long term “life planning” and decision making have ensued! Work and church callings are keeping both Rex and I busy. Both are gratifying and challenging at the same time. Without a doubt, the most challenging change for me is having both boys in school all day. I miss (almost) everything about not having them home! I do however love that my house stays clean for 7 hours a day! Minus the clean house, I miss the laughing, art projects, watching them engineer homemade squirt guns, Lego creations, field trips, their stories, and so much more!
Throughout the day I'm constantly checking the time and counting down the minutes until school pickup. Now I can do that in style with my new wooden watch from JORD! I have FALLEN IN LOVE with the beauty and simplicity of this wooden watch!
If you've walked through Walmart, Hobby Lobby, or browsed Pinterest within the last few weeks, you've seen Halloween out and about. So it shouldn't be too revolting that we are talking about it on here right? ;)
I am so excited to share my Halloween piano today. I keep thinking it is a mantle because that is kind of how I treat it. It is indeed a piano though. I do love to play this piano, but it is really fun to decorate too! Speaking of pianos....if you need a free one, check out the San Francisco Bay Area Craigslist "Free Stuff" section. I could get multiple free pianos a week. Even grand pianos! Craziest thing ever.
This piano here was a free find from Craigslist. I gave it a really easy chalk paint/liming wax makeover and fell in love with it. It will accompany me across the country from here on out to wherever we may end up.
To get these spooky spider webs on your mantle or piano, you will need a Craft Size package of Poly-Fil Quilt Batting from Fairfield World. You can grab it from Joann's, Walmart, www.fairfieldworld.com, Amazon...pretty much any major craft retailer.
This Craft Size package was the perfect size for the job. Run, don't walk to your nearest craft store so you can get the perfect faux spider webs just like these.
Alright now the first thing you will do is separate the batting by pulling the layers apart. I got 3 layers total pulled apart. I maybe could have gotten another layer but use your judgment on this. The reason you want to separate these layers is because it thins out the batting and gives a more authentic look.
After you have your thin layers separated, started pulling apart each layer.
You want a thin look like the photo below, with little holes. Try to pull apart the batting enough that you don't have any thick white spots.
Once you've done this to all 3 layers of batting, start laying it over your mantle or piano. If you need smaller pieces, rip your separated layers into pieces for easier decorating.
Throw in a few halloween signs and old apothecary jars. FYI I got these jars at an antique store for dirt cheap! They added a lot of character to this look I think!! Definitely worth scoping out your nearest antique shop.
Hang some cheap witches hat from the ceiling with fishing line (and trim yours better than I did so you don't see the string hanging haha).
Buy batting online here.
And as always, if you have any questions, send us a message. If you recreate this look, tag us on one of our social channels so we can see it!!! Don't forget to follow us so you don't miss out on our next project or mouth watering recipe.
I just might steal this pillow and make it my new pillow I sleep on every night. Kind of kidding, kind of serious. It is so soft and cuddly. This is easily our favorite material we've worked with. The best part? It's machine washable!!!!
