Fall-Burlap-Wreath-Tutorial-Header2_forblog

The crisp coolness of fall is moving in here in the Midwest and with it comes the urge to decorate every square inch of my home to honor it. Dare I say that we do more fall decorating then we do Christmas decorating? This year my goal is to simplify life a bit and instead of decorating for Halloween & decorating for Thanksgiving, I am trying to create pieces that can double for both holidays and be appreciated until it’s time to break out the Christmas decorations. The best part is that this burlap wreath requires no crafting skills, no cutting, and is very inexpensive to create.

The one thing I will say with making burlap wreaths is that you need to have a little patience with yourself in the beginning. My first wreath, I took apart three times before I got the hang of it.  Once you get the bubbling of the burlap down though, this really is a quick and easy craft and such a great way to dress up a door.

Fall-Burlap-Wreath-Tutorial-1_forblog

Supplies Needed:

  • 2 rolls of burlap, 5 inches wide & 10 yards long in an autumn shade (like this orange)
  • 18″ wire wreath form
  • Green floral garland (you want something that you can cut easily and that will mimic the vining of a pumpkin)
  • Floral wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Glue gun & glue sticks

fall-burlap-wreath-tutorial_forblog

Directions:

1. Begin by folding your burlap in half, like I have shown above, and keep the fold going as we go along. Select one section of the wire wreath to start in. Feed the beginning end through the wreath as shown above: over the outer ring, under the next, over the next, and under to finish. Leave a little loose end to tuck in or you can wire it to the wreath with a little floral wire in the back. Now you have started your wreath- super easy!  This is the technique we are using throughout.

I am showing it to you tightly so you can see how this will work, when you do this, you will actually be pulling out the burlap a bit to give it to that bubble effect that we are going for. 

2. Using the working end of the burlap (the working end is the side that isn’t the final end of the burlap, but the end you are working with), we are going to begin making the bubbled burlap right next to this row, within the same section of that metal wreath, but we will begin weaving in the opposite direction, continuing to pull out and bubble the burlap as we go, moving the working burlap into each section, weaving one direction than weaving the other direction.

4. When you run out of burlap (it should be when you are about halfway through covering the wreath), tuck the end towards the back and pick up where you left off. Again, you can wire these ends with a little floral wire on the back.

5. Once the entire wreath is covered, secure the final end with floral wire on the back of the wreath to make sure everything is held into place, twisted around one of the metal strands of the wreath.

6. Now you can fluff your burlap out to create that bubbly effect and to cover any of the metal you can see peeking out..

7. Clip small stems of your greenery to weave into your wreath. Starting with the front, add bits here and there, but not in a pattern, to make it look natural. Repeat this process with the middle layer and then finally attach a few towards the back to add texture to this wreath.

Fall-Burlap-Wreath-Tutorial-22_forblog

 

I don’t want to brag, but doesn’t this look like something out of a magazine? Weaving in the texture of the greenery really makes this wreath pop and looks professional. Thanks to catching some half-off sales at our local craft store, I was able to make this beauty for less than $20 which also makes me very happy!

I hope you can dress your home up simply and beautifully for the fall holidays with this fun idea!

We’re back with another round of tips and tricks for revamping your home before the holidays! Last month we focused all of our attention to tackling the kitchen. This month we’re ready to take on a little space that probably doesn’t get too much attention but does a whole lot to help you throughout the fall and winter months: your dear old laundry room!

Between washing all your heavy knits and sweaters ready to make their comeback, to taking care of all the spills and messes the holidays bring, you’re going to need a laundry room that’s ready to handle anything you throw at it. Just think of how happy you’ll be with this space when you’re washing tablecloths, extra bedding for relatives staying over, dish towels, snow-messed clothes and more while trying to finish holiday dinner! Let’s get started.

01. Pick a Color

Blue-color-laundry-room

The easiest way to refresh your laundry room is a new color. Whether clean and subdued or bright and vibrant, pick something that feels right for your space. Easy-to-wipe-clean semigloss paint would be best option when putting a new coat of color up. You can also go with bedboard paneling or glossy ceramic tiles that can withstand the dirty work of a laundry room.

02. Lighting

IMG_4600

In addition to any natural light that may come through, choose a low-profile ceiling-mount fixture to avoid clutter. You can also add task lighting like LED undercabinet strips or focused overhead spots to help at ironing or work stations.

03. Get Organized

laundry-room-cabinets

Your laundry room has the potential to be the messiest room in the house! But with a few simple additions, you can get it tip top in no time. Add a folding station to help you save time and minimize wrinkles. A designated laundry station to accommodate baskets, clothes rods and cabinets to hide detergents and liquids can go a long way to helping you clean up. You can also opt for hooks, shelving and a drying rack for a more open look to the room. Also consider a built-in spot for an ironing board to save space.

04. Find the Right Appliance

hqdefault

If your washer and dryer pair are nearing a decade old, it’s time to upgrade. Switching out pairs that are more than 10 years old can save you more money and resources. Plus there are tons of new features that make laundry day easier than ever. The connections in your laundry room will determine whether you need a gas or electric washer and dryer pair. Check out our front-load laundry pairs, and get 35% faster wash times.* Or take a spin with our top-load laundry pair and see why no one in it’s class performs better.**

05. Create a Workspace

l_83c5cea0-d39c-11e1-a5d3-65cc1fa00007

Adding a counter or freestanding table to help with extra space solutions, folding and more. Instead of natural stone, try nonporous solid surfacing such as Corian, engineered stone or laminate. If you have a front-load pair, find a surface that fits across the top of the washer and dryer.

06. Add a Sink

hgtvgreendreamhome2010laundryroom

Opt for a 10- to 12-inch-deep square or rectangular stainless-steel sink with curved, easy-to-clean corners. Plastic tubs can stain easily and lack under-sink storage. A gooseneck faucet or pull-out spray hose would be a helpful addition.

Just a few changes around the laundry room can really impact the effect of that space and have you ready to go just in time for the holiday rush!

 

*With Accela-Wash feature activated washing an 8lb. load on default Normal cycle.
*Among leading brand top load washers with washplate systems greater than 4.0 cu. ft. and less than 4.7 cu. ft. as measured by DOE standards, based on an analysis of 4 criteria: AHAM cleaning score for an 8 lb load, DOE EnergyGuide in kWh/yr, average cycle times for an AHAM 8 lb Normal cycle cleaning test, and machine capacity of declared DOE capacity value; total matrix score based on utility score weighting.

Looking to spruce up or revamp your home before the holidays? Now is the time to start!

For this month, we’re putting all of our attention on the heart of the home: the kitchen. There really is no place like home for the holidays, and for most of us, that time is going to be spent entertaining in the kitchen. We know what you’re thinking, but don’t worry, there’s no need for a full remodel. All you need to refresh your kitchen is a few efficient tips and tricks to help you create that perfect entertaining space you’ve always wanted, for a fraction of the price. Follow our tips below and get your home guest-ready just in time for festivities to begin.

01. Revamp your cabinets

03-paint-answers
Make the most of existing kitchen cabinets with a simple makeover. Replacing cabinets can get expensive, but if they’re in good shape, a little facelift is all they really need to look like new. Try a coat of paint (chalkboard paint makes a fun alternative) or a distressed finish to disguise nicks and scratches. Replace hardware or cover the inside backs of cabinets with wallpaper for simple fixes to make a big effect. You can also go the modern route and replace cabinet doors with glass and frosted-glass fronts. Feeling adventurous? Removing the cabinets altogether and replacing them with open shelving can be the drastic, fresh update your kitchen needs.

02. Add a backsplash 

kitchen-backsplash-tile-designs
Transform your kitchen and give it a custom look by adding a stunning backsplash. There is an endless variety of attention-grabbing styles and patterns to choose from. The right backsplash tile can introduce another design dimension to your kitchen and even make your kitchen appear larger. Try slender, glass tiles for a trendy and modern vibe or go super sleek and clutter-free with a large glass-paneled background. Not feeling the glass tile route? Indulge in a more rustic style with a natural stone look.

03. New lighting

Kitchen-Lighting-Design
Changing up the lighting style in your kitchen can be an easy way to give it a new atmosphere as well as improve overall function of the space. Before you run off to pick up that shiny new chandelier your were eyeing, start with functional lighting to illuminate the spots you need for everyday tasks. Canned lighting can boost the brightness where needed, such as over the kitchen sink, table or any islands. Lighting under the cabinets are also an ideal way to eliminate shadows. Once you’ve got the necessities, get creative with some additional decorative lighting like dangling pendants, globes or chandeliers.

04. Update your appliances

Your appliances are the main focus of your kitchen and really affect the overall look and feel to the room. Replacing your kitchen suite is by no means a quick, cheap fix, but rather a sound investment in your home. You need a refrigerator, oven, microwave and dishwasher that is really going to help improve the way you use your kitchen, and is ready to handle everything the holidays are going to throw at you. And, aside from ensuring all of your appliances will match, you’re more likely to get a bigger discount when you buy full suites together. Plus, if you don’t have up-to-date appliances, you’re missing out on incredible energy savings and innovative features. There’s always room to stock up on groceries, leftovers and more with our largest capacity refrigerators, up to 33 cubic feet! Plus, you’ll find helpful features like CrisperKeeper drawers that extend the freshness of produce up to 25%* or the industry-first Grab-N-Go™ door that puts all of your often-used items right at hand. You’ll be more than thankful over the holidays when you upgrade one to our double oven  that cooks two full-sized meals at different temperatures, simultaneously. In fact, Kenmore Elite® ranks “Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Ranges, Cooktops and Ovens, Two Years in a Row.”** And when it comes to cleanup, no one cleans and dries better*** than our newest Kenmore® dishwasher lineup. We’re especially proud of all of our industry-leading performance products with third party endorsements and Kenmore® exclusive features. Check out all that we have to offer and see why Kenmore® is the most awarded brand in the industry.****


05. Update faucets or sink

Modern kitchen interior
If you’re going to update the actual tub, choose something that’s deep and easy to clean. If you use your dishwasher more often, a single tub will suffice. If you’re not ready to make that drastic of a change, replacing your faucet can help make your kitchen more stylish, without spending a lot of money. Choose a bold color or an original form to attract attention. Even just redecorating the sink area can make a major improvement to your space. Try little updates like updating the valance over the window, buying a new soap dispenser or keeping fresh herbs or flowers around.

 

06. Get organized

kitchen-pantry
Simply clearing out clutter in the in the kitchen can make a big impact on the atmosphere. Some helpful ideas for organizing your kitchen would be to use a Lazy Susan for spices, condiments or sticky items since it’s easy to clean, or create a space to hang aprons, pot holders and dish towels that is near when you need it. Sometimes the pick-me-up you need could be just getting a new set of dishes and tupperware and starting new.

Just a few changes—big or small— can really impact your space and make it merry and bright just in time for the holidays!

DIY drink cart for tailgating

I may not be nuts about the game of football, but I can honestly say that I am nuts about entertaining for the games. To me, it is all about friends, family, food, and time together. I love having just the right tools on hand for entertaining and one item that I have been dying to add to my arsenal of entertaining tools is a beverage cart.

Have you ever seen the pricing on beverage carts? It is quite astounding! I love to have a cheap chic home, especially when it comes to entertaining needs, and I just can’t picture spending $500 or more on a cart that houses our drinks. I decided to wow my friends with a budget-friendly and family-friendly drink cart that would sit perfectly in my budget. You know what fits right in my budget? A tool cart.

Today we are making over a Sears Hardware Cart into a beautiful bar cart. Say what? I know! This cart retails for a mere $82.87 and has just the type of clean and modern lines I was looking for in a more expensive cart. The best part is that you can personalize it to your own taste and color scheme.

DIY drink cart for tailgating

Supplies Needed:

  • Sears Hardware Cart
  • 2 cans Krylon Colormaster in Metallic Gold (indoor) Spray Paint
  • 1 can Rust-Oleum Hammered Brown Spray Paint
  • 1 Spray Paint Trigger (should be in the same aisle as the spray paint)
  • Sandpaper
  • Painter’s Tape (to tape off your wheels)
  • Gloves

DIY drink cart for tailgating

Directions:

1. Begin by removing all of the parts and lining them up on cardboard or a drop cloth for painting. You will want the trays on this piece to be upside-down since we are only spray painting the exterior of the tray. This will not only save you time spray painting, but the cart already has a nice finish on it that is easy to wipe and clean.

2. Rough up the exterior with medium-grit sandpaper. This will help our gold paint adhere to this smooth surface better.

3. Apply the trigger handle to your spray paint can. If you haven’t used one of these before it is a life-changing spray painting tool that offers even coverage and saves your poor trigger finger for long projects. Begin by shaking your can for 1-2 minutes and periodically during use. Hold the can 10″-12″ from your surface, and spray in sweeping motions from side to side with a slight overlap. Apply multiple thin coats, wait one minute between each. You can add a top coat, if you like, with a clear topcoat, but it does dull the metallic sheen from this paint. I chose to leave it without the clear coat, because I like the roughness and loveliness of the sheen of this paint. I did find that this does adhere a bit unevenly to the surface, but creates more of the hammered metal look that I was going for.

4. Remove the trigger handle and now place it on your hammered metal spray paint that we are using for the handles and wheels on our bar cart. Using the same technique, hold the can 10″-12″ from your surface, and spray in sweeping motions from side to side with a slight overlap. Allow these to dry fully and then flip to the other side to spray paint the flip-side of these.

5. Tape off your wheels as best as you can and spray paint these with the same spray paint. Allow them to dry and then flip to the other side and spray paint the flip-side. When you remove the tape, if any of the paint has gotten on the wheel, just use your sandpaper to rough up the wheel to remove the paint.

6. Assemble after cart and its parts are fully dry. Keep your spray paint handy for final touch-ups and use a piece of cardboard to block and protect areas around where you need to touch-up. Allow this to fully dry before loading it with your drinks.

Now you can fill and decorate your cart for the football season. We made this a fun family-friendly beverage cart that is filled with drinks for the whole family, straws, snacks, and adorned it with some tissue paper pinwheels.

You can also add special touches to celebrate your favorite team with pennants and game-day accessories from your local party store. We didn’t want to get booed on the Kenmore blog so we are keeping who we are rooting for a secret, but maybe the blue and gold might give you a little hint (wink, wink)!

The best part is that this cart can be used year-round and I can already see how lovely it will be for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and the 4th of July with its vibrant red interior. Who would have ever known that this beauty started as a humble tool cart?

DIY drink cart for tailgating

We hope you enjoy this game-day idea and can’t wait to hear what you think of this DIY bar cart, perfect for your whole family!

The first year away from home will be full of new and exciting experiences, but there’s no reason they can’t bring a little bit of home with them. Home-cooked meals and freshly washed (and unshrunk!) clothes can still be enjoyed even with dorm living.

Pass these tips along to your new college kids to make sure they’re prepared to leave the nest.

Foods to Keep in Your Dorm

recipe_image66-cropped-480x360

Staying healthy in the dorm doesn’t have to be a struggle. Keep these handy snacks and ingredients around for a quick energy boost or a better way to fill up between meals.

Dry storage: raw almonds, canned tuna, bananas, oranges, apples, dried fruit, trail mix, canned fruits (with water, not syrup), protein bars, popcorn, canned soup or chili, oats, cereal, rice or quinoa, any nut butter, jello, and crackers.

Seasonings: salt, black pepper, stevia, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, hot sauce, soy sauce, and popcorn seasoning.

For your fridge: Hummus, carrots, shredded rotisserie chicken, yogurt, avocados, steamer bags of frozen veggies, applesauce, string cheese or mini cheese wheels, and lunch meats.

Simple Laundry Tips

4356419897_f3e8013bb2_o

You’ll never realize how much you took clean, fresh clothes for granted until the day you have to do a load of your own. Don’t fret about shrunken shirts, stains on your favorite blouse or bleeding colors. Our simple laundry tips are easy enough for everyone to follow.

1. First off, these are all the items and materials you need: a laundry basket that’s easy to carry around, detergent, fabric softener and/or dryer sheets, and a mesh wash bag for delicates. Throw in an iron and ironing board if you’re ambitious and want to make mom proud.

2. You’ll want to pick a time to do your laundry, preferably when there are no waiting lines for machines. Nighttime is usually best, since most people will have tried to get their laundry done during the morning or afternoon. Most importantly, stay by your clothes. Bring a book, your computer or even your homework and niche out some quiet time while you wait. Sticking around with your clothes ensures no one can take them out before they’re done or “borrow” one of your favorite tops.

3. We know it’s silly to mention, but separate your clothes. Separating into whites, colors and darks is a safe bet that all of your clothes will remain in good standing. Also, make sure you don’t overload the machines. Too many clothes in the washer and dryer means not everything is getting as clean or dry as they can.

4. Choose the right water temperature for your clothes. Use hot for whites, linens and towels. Use cold for anything you don’t want to shrink or fade, or just clothes that you’re unsure of and don’t want to ruin. Use warm for just about everything else. If you’re not sure about what to use for the dryer, just stick with normal. Air dry jeans, nice blouses and anything you think could get heat damage.

5. Wash your clothes inside out to prevent any fabric damage and to get a good thorough clean. This will also protect any embellishments on your clothes.

Hey Kenmore readers, be sure to tell us your own tips for the dorm in the comments section below!

DIY personalized pencils craft for back to school

I can’t believe that another school year is upon us. With my daughter going into third grade and my son now going into sixth grade, I feel like I am swinging back into school a lot easier than I used to.

I always try to do one special thing for my kids on their first day of school to remind them how much they are loved. When my daughter started Kindergarten, I made hair bows that had a heart center, reminding her that my heart was with her on her big first day. For my son, it was always lots of jokes and comics tucked away in his lunchbox to share with his friends.

This year I was inspired by a scene from “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett. If you haven’t seen the movie or read the book, you really must. In this particular scene, the sweet character Aibileen gives the little girl she cares for a self-esteem boost each day saying, “You is kind. You is smart. You is important.” These encouraging words are what help shape this little girl and help her grow and thrive.

I wanted to create personalized pencils for my own little girl for her first day of school that would capture why she is so special to me and capture a little of that self-esteem magic that I found so endearing in the film.

I jotted down a list of words that I think of when I think of my little girl. Kind, smart, funny, sassy, and joyful are just a few examples of what I think makes her so special. I wanted to create a project around these words and thought a pencil could remind her daily of why her mom thinks she is so darn wonderful.

DIY personalized stamped pencils craft for back to school

  • Metal Stamping Letter Kit (you can do uppercase or lowercase)
  • Black Ink Pad
  • Hammer
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Paper Towel
  • Ribbon to tie

Directions

1. Jot down a list of words about what makes your child so special that you can use to stamp on your pencils.

2. Begin by sorting out your metal stamps into alphabetical order. I wrote a letter on the side of the stamp so it would be easy to find the stamp I needed while creating these. For me, the sorting was the most consuming part, but once you have this done it will make this project a lot faster.

3. Stamp your letter stamp into your black ink pad several times, until the letter is completely covered in the ink.

4. Then align your stamp, checking to make sure it’s about centered on one of the pencils’ flat sides, and also that it’s right-side up. You will want to give the end of your stamp a tap or two with the hammer. Keep in mind that wood is soft so you don’t want to pound it too hard, just hard enough to make that impression. Keep repeating this until you have spelled out your word.

5. Finish by dabbing your paper towel with rubbing alcohol and rubbing swiftly across the top of it to remove any excess ink that may have carried over from the stamping pad.

6. Wrap these in ribbon and give them to your child for their first day of school!

I hope this project inspires you to create a little bouquet of pencils for your child’s first day of school. Older children might enjoy assisting with this project or love stamping their own name. Not only is this a great activity for mastering spelling, but it is also a great way to use their imagination to create words of their own.

Happy first day of school, Kenmore readers!
