Decorative Books for Koselig / Hyggelig with Flannel Fabric

I think it’s high time I create another flannel project, don’t you? The weather is finally feeling like Fall and I am craving all the cozy plaid…and today’s project also has a special twist. All of my project materials came from thrift stores that benefit an animal-based charity! And to get in a Koselig / Hyggelig frame of mind, I decided to create some decorative books using thrift store books and flannel fabric from old flannel shirts!

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

This project, my friends, was driven entirely by my obsession with one of Funky Junk Interiors’ most recent stencils. She created a Buffalo check stencil for her Old Sign Stencil Shop, and I have been dying to try it out. I decided to create some Buffalo check decor on a wood tray from the thrift store using her stencil. I thought it would be lovely as rustic cabin decor to use for my autumn decorating!Read more ›

Tablecloth Weights / Tablecloth Clips from Horse Brass

Tablecloth Weights / Tablecloth Clips from Horse Brass

I don’t exactly know why, but when I think of anything horse-related, I imagine it in an autumn setting. I can’t really explain why this is, and maybe it makes no sense…but when I think of horses, I think of plaid blankets, leather accessories, and crisp Fall air. So, when I spotted these horse brass at a thrift store, I decided they were destined to be used in an autumn project. Read more ›

Here we are- in JANUARY- with the holidays behind us and a new year before us. And in my constant quest for cozy home decor during the winter months, I decided that some fireplace decor was in order.

Draft Stopper from Flannel Shirts for Rustic Decor

Draft Stopper from Flannel Shirts for Rustic Decor

You know I couldn’t get through the year without at least one flannel project, right? I’ve got oodles of repurposed clothing scraps leftover from previous flannel shirt projects.

Plaid Blanket or Tartan Throw with Wool Scarves

Plaid Blanket or Tartan Throw with Wool Scarves

In the fall and winter, I love, love, love having a throw blanket (or a few) laying around. They function for both cozy snuggles AND cozy decor – especially a plaid blanket or tartan throw. And I recently decided that the easiest way to make one was to upcycle some of the wool scarves that I occasionally see at the thrift store.

Reusable Hand Warmers / DIY Hand Warmers from Flannel Shirts

Reusable Hand Warmers / DIY Hand Warmers from Flannel Shirts

I have a confession to make: Once I made my Fall Table Runner, I became completely obsessed with making more projects with flannel fabric. I’ll go ahead and apologize now because after a few weeks, you may be rolling your eyes at me. I decided that my next project should be a scrapbuster, as I had several cut-up flannel shirts that needed more upcycling. So, why not make some DIY hand warmers or reusable hand warmers for a fun and easy autumn craft?

Fall Table Runner with Flannel Shirts and Lace Ribbon

Fall Table Runner with Flannel Shirts and Lace Ribbon

Back in early Spring when I created my Dyed Doily Table Runner, I was already envisioning an autumn version- with doilies dyed to look like chrysanthemums. AND, I even bought some vintage doilies that had orange and gold hues for the Fall table runner. I was *convinced* that that was the plan. But as time marched on, I started envisioning a cozier version – one that used flannel shirts and lace ribbon.Read more ›
