Welcoming Paint Stamped DIY Door Mat

We all adore the Dollar Store, and I'm excited to share this newest dollar store décor idea with you! I like seasonal doormats, but paying $20 or more for one that will only be available for a few weeks is really not exciting for me. Granted, that's how all holiday and seasonal decor works, but why spend more when you can save money? Use a Dollar Store Rug and some acrylic craft paint to create a cute custom Autumn "Hello" rug in less than an hour with no sewing required. This is a simple DIY craft project.


  • Doormat from the dollar store
  • Acrylic Craft Paint ( used here are red, orange, yellow, copper metallic, and white)
  • A piece of Chalk
  • Paint Brushes

Handmade DIY Embroidery Circle Hanging Plant Holder

When transforming two needlework circles into an unusual hanging plant holder, think outside the box, or circle in this case. They take a different approach than classic macrame versions, yet they nonetheless serve the same purpose for plant enthusiasts. You can put your small ceramic or terracotta pot in the center with an inserted cork base while your growing friend relaxes in its new favorite spot near the window.

Embroidery hoops are a must-have tool for those of us who enjoy hand stitching, but they're useful for a lot more than that. Here's a simple guide for making a hanging shelf out of a single hoop. At the bottom of your hoops, you can add decorative elements like tassels and beads.


  • One 9-inch wood embroidery hoop
  • One 7-inch rigid cork trivet (A wood disc or metal plate would also work)
  • Tacky craft glue
  • Binder clips or clamps
  • Rope or cording
  • (To make a smaller hanging shelf, use a 5 or 6-inch hoop with a 4-inch rigid cork coaster.)

See the easy steps here.

Have a lot of fun crafting these hanging shelves. They'd make wonderful gifts for any plant lovers you know!

One of the great ways to keep the temperature cool inside your house is by having indoor plants. And what better way to do that and at the same time keep things chic and clutter-free is by putting your plants inside a miniature greenhouse home? Your plant will thank you for it. Like this mid-century modern greenhouse. Tropical plants, general plant growth, as well as delicate, young plants and cuttings, thrive in greenhouses. The humidity in the enclosed area is usually high (which most plants want), and the glass walls keep it warm, which encourages development.

  • Adtech glue gun (or any glue gun you have)
  • Favorite shade of paint
