DIY Air Plant Terrariums

Have you heard of air plants?  They are such a fun and unique way to bring a little more green into your life.  With all the winter weather we've been having in central Washington State, I'm so ready for spring.  I'm teaming up with Fairfield World to bring you this project and have been compensated for this post, but all ideas, opinions, and enthusiasm are 100% my own.  This post contains affiliate links.

Air plants don't get planted in dirt. (In fact that would kill them.)  Instead they can be displayed in all sorts of fun ways...anywhere they can get enough natural light.  They get watered about once a week by dipping them in water for a few minutes, let them dry, and then place them back in their home.

You can switch out the color pebbles to match any holiday, decor, or color scheme.  I have Valentine's Day and...

...St. Patrick's Day in mind.


Here's what you'll need to make your own.


You can find my complete instructions for these Air Plant Terrariums on the Fairfield World site here.

Contrast-Edged Cuddle® Pillows

These easy Cuddle® pillows let you combine two of your favorite coordinating prints or solids.  The edging is so simple -- Just like binding a quilt.  Make the pillows as their own project or to coordinate with a blanket or something else.  I've teamed up with Shannon Fabrics and Fairfield World to bring you this project.  All opinions and ideas are 100% my own.


Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

You can find the full tutorial and step-by-step photos for the Contrast-Edged Cuddle® Pillows on the Shannon Fabrics blog here.

DIY Pee-Proof Fitted Sheet

You can make your own Pee-Proof Fitted Sheet for your Toddler Bed with this easy tutorial.

We're done with potty training around here except for the occasional night-time accident, so I thought we'd celebrate with making our little guys a super soft sheet that will also protect his mattress.  I've teamed up with Fairfield World and Shannon Fabrics to bring you this project.  This post contains affiliate links.

Reversible Cuddle® Chair Cover

This is an easy reversible chair cover for a favorite chair that just needs a facelift and only takes and hour or two of your time.  I used Cuddle® Fabric to make it extra soft and comfortable.

Thank you Fairfield World for their continued support of my creativity by providing me with products to try and compensating me for my work sharing it with you.  Thank you also to Shannon Fabrics for providing me with the Cuddle® fabric.  The support of these companies made this donation to my daughter's classroom possible.  All opinions, ideas, and enthusiasm is entirely my own.  This post contains affiliate links.

We've all got that chair that we LOVE and is SO comfortable, but is ugly as all get out, right?  Different covers work for different kinds of chairs, but this is an easy cover that can work for most kinds of chairs.  It will work best for chairs with open arms, so that you can tie the cover in place at the back of the seat.

Rebecca's teacher loves owls and her favorite colors are blue and green, so these seemed like the perfect fabrics.

Before the instructions....just a little backstory...
