FREE Printable Literary Quote For Your Bar

FREE Printable Literary Quote for your Bar

Not only is this quote perfect for Holiday decorating it's also tailor-made to display above your bar!
I imagined this above a very masculine style bar like the one I used to style the print (above) via Society Social blog. The gold foil leaf texture, and Dior style logo font adds a touch of sophistication to this cheeky quote. What do you think? Could you see Damon Salvatore having this art print above his bar?

Damon says, probably yes ;)

This would also make a great last-minute DIY gift for that guy who already has everything and never asks for anything! Simply print off the art on white card stock and pick up a simple black lacquered style frame from Ikea, POCO, Michael's or Hobby Lobby. The whole project might cost you $6.

DIY Anthropologie Inspired Monogram Confetti Yarn Ornaments

In 2013 while I was visiting family in the States I got to check out Anthro's latest ornament assortment for the Holidays. Every time I go in Anthro there are dozens of adorable single-letter monogram goodies to get me excited! ...Sadly, 99% of the time I never like the color combo of the letters I want for myself! When I saw the confetti dotted yarn ornaments (below) I loved the concept but wasn't willing to pay $8 for essentially 20ft of yarn. I knew this was one Anthro item I could DIY myself with pleasing results.

The best thing about DIY-ing something is the ability to make it any size or colour you like!

To DIY my own confetti yarn monogram ornaments I used:
  • yarn
  • scissors
  • clear tacky craft glue
  • cardboard
  • pencil
  • assorted mini felt poms and/or plastic jewels
  • plastic yarn needle

  1. Draw desired letter on cardboard
  2. cut out letter
  3. wrap yarn around cardboard
  4. to cover exposed left-over areas use shorter pieces of yarn and the needle
  5. glue poms or plastic rhinestones to front of letter
  6. let dry according to instructions on your glue bottle
  7. voila! done!

The final cost for 2 letters was about $2

What letters and colour combos are you planning to make? 
These would also look cute as gift toppers or to take to a dirty santa exchange don't you think?!
