Monday's Must Make List: 2

Happy Monday!

All of these DIY's have been recently added to my must-make list. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Don't forget to pin from the original sources :)

Must Make Item #1:
DIY Cactus Pillow by Everything Emily

Emily made the cutest cactus pillow for her son's room and I love it! The yarn "thorns" are the icing on the cake, err cactus, if you ask me. I don't have any kids but I plan on making one of these guys ASAP!

Must Make Item #2:
How to Age Brass in Less Than 5 Minutes by In My Own Style

Have you ever found a piece of brass hardware that you absolutely loved but hated the finish of? If so, check out Diane at In My Own Style's tutorial for aging brass in less than 5 minutes! She shows you how she turned her bright brass finished drawer and label pulls into aged brass ones.

I feel like her tutorial could come in handy for our guest bathroom's hardware. The bright brass finish is looking very 80's to me all of a sudden...

Must Make Item #3:
DIY Stamped Watermelon Doormat by Dream Green DIY for eHow

Carrie from Dream Green DIY created this DIY stamped watermelon doormat for eHow and I think it's the perfect way to welcome summer to your front patio! The watermelon's are great but think of all the other fruity creations you could make! Lemons, limes, oranges, cherries – the list goes on!

What's on your "must make" list?

  1. Great finds this time! I definitely clicked on two of them right away, so I am a fan of this group!

  2. ooh! now I want a cactus pillow, too! Actually, I first read it as "cactus family" by mistake, so I kind of want a whole FAMILY of cactus pillows :)

  3. Love love love that watermelon mat!!! And the cactus pillow...super cute!

  4. I'm loving this series!!! I'm kind of digging Grethens idea of a cactus family...especially since I have a black thumb!

  5. I love that cactus pillow. I need to make one for my bff Heidi. She has been living with us the past year. She's from Mesa. I'm helping her move back in 2 weeks. She LOVES cactus anything.
