It’s been a while since I’ve done a jewelry DIY project, but this one combines fashion with something I’ve become increasingly into lately, plants. Judging by the other indoor jungles that I see on Instagram, I’m not the only one, so this one goes out to the other plant lades out there! Monstera’s iconic split leaves seemed like they would make good earrings, so I took a cue from my brass hand earrings, and used the same technique to make brass monstera leaf DIY earrings.

When I was re-organizing my accessories as part of my closet makeover, I found my stash of pins and brooches. I’m not cool enough to have an extensive enamel pin collection (yet!), but I have plenty of little buttons, and I needed a better way to store them. A wall pin storage banner seemed like it would be an easy solution, so I whipped one up in no time. It seems like such a cute way to display pins that now I’m finding myself wishing I had more enamel pins to show off.
This weekend, I fell into a home repair quagmire that I didn’t see coming. I ended up devoting hours and hours to sprucing up a bathroom that we plan to tear up and completely re-do in the near future. What happened? Well, it’s kind of a long story, but it got me thinking about fairly inexpensive fixes that are worth doing while you wait for the “real” remodel. From the paint color to the organization, you can make things a lot more pleasant for yourself while you save up for a big bathroom renovation, and a lot of these ideas would be perfect for renters, too.
Judging by some of the amazing indoor jungles I’ve come across lately, it’s not really possible to have too many plants in your house. But building up your jungle with store-bought plants can get expensive fast. That’s where the ability to propagate your plants yourself can come in handy. Many plants can be propagated simply by sticking a leaf or stalk in water. (I’ll share a post soon with details and tips on easy plant propagation.) You can always use a random glass or bottle, but this test tube vase propagation station is a much more stylish solution. Or, if you don’t want more plants, you can just use it as a bud vase.
