Cute Crocheted Cushions

Winter time is a great time to decorate! It’s a great time to do some online shopping (since who feels like leaving the house?) and it’s a great time to order your supplies and make some handmade decor items. I’m somewhat of a throw pillow convert, in that I used to be much more boring and practical and didn’t see why a person would want so many pillows around when they just seem to get in the way of sitting and sleeping and whatnot. But there are so many cute options, so I’ve come around! And now I’ve found so many fun patterns to make your own (and I’ve got a pattern idea in the works for a special custom pillow for my craft room… wait and see!!!). Check out the great patterns that I’ve found to make your own crafty pillows!

Starting off today’s pattern round-up is this adorable floral-embellished crocheted cushion pattern from Annie Design. I love the lacy texture on this pillow cover and the sweet little floral appliques really add a delicate touch.

Decor embellished with words is still totally on trend, so if you’re into that kind of thing, this crochet pattern for this rustic “blessed” throw cushion is a sweet farmhouse style pattern by Two Little Birds Patterns.

This adorable Love to Cuddle Pillow crochet pattern from The Turtle Trunk utilizes the popular faux fur (get some here) to make this completely cuddle-able cushion, perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s day holiday!

If you’re looking to throw some different shapes of cushions into your decor, you can try this textured round flower pillow cover pattern from Crochet Spot Patterns.

This adorable heart pillow crochet pattern from Peach and Paige Designs would be sweet in a nursery or a little girl’s bedroom. Also, what a fun Valentine’s pattern to work on!

So many of the fibre artists I know are loving llamas lately, so this super adorable Alpaca Llama Pillow from Anne Alster is completely on trend! (Also, she has many other adorable crochet patterns for pillows that will make you smile: check out her shop!)

Monogrammed pillows would make for a lovely wedding gift, don’t ya think? Or super fun for a kid’s bedroom, as well. Check out these Brixton Monogram Pillow Crochet Patterns also from Two Little Birds Patterns.

Of course, for some reason, the poop emoji pillow is a thing. Kids are so weird. But if yours seems to have a fascination with poop emojis, perhaps you would like to make them this bizarre pillow pattern from Soul Moon Rising?

Personally, I’d much rather have one of these Shark Pillows hanging around in my kids’ rooms. Super fun and whimsical crochet pattern from Spina Yarn Studio.

Beautiful Wreaths for Every Month of the Year

I have a thing for wreaths. I have made a few. I want to one day have wreaths for every season, maybe even different ones for every month! (But where would I keep them?!) Anyway, I have these really lovely french doors in the front of our house and I have 2 hanging spots for wreaths up there, and sadly, I only put wreaths up a Christmas-time. But I’ve found some great inspiration for when I get it together to get wreaths up there year round.

*Disclosure: some of the following links are affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

January

I love this gorgeous, simple spring wreath with lovely cream-coloured berries! Perfect for winter after Christmas is over.

February

As much as I love pink and hearts, I’m not all that interested in super sappy-wreaths hanging on my front door, so this twine-wrapped wreath with pink felt flowers is my kind of Valentine’s Day wreath. Perfect for February!

March

I love this green “Lucky” wreath, which is perfect for St Patrick’s Day, but also fine to leave up for the whole month of March, since it’s not so obviously decked out with St Patrick’s Day paraphernalia.

April

Look at these matching Easter wreaths for my double french doors! Perfect! This would really add some spring life to my front door!

May

This wreath full of tulips would be perfect for Mother’s Day and the rest of May! So springy and full of colour!

June

This is a little bit of an unconventional wreath because it’s more like a pot of flowers, but it’s so fun, bright and cheery, full of gerbera daisies and greenery!

July

Now, I live in Canada, so we celebrate Canada Day on July 1, and this one is not actually a finished wreath, but a pattern for only $2.50. Get the pattern here.

And because so many of my readers are in the US, I’ve picked 2 wreaths for July, so that my American friends can view the beautiful wreaths for Independence Day (I must say, SOOOO many more options of July 4 wreaths than Canada Day wreaths, so I might be a little jealous). I love this Americana Wreath, so classic.

August

My August wreath pick is this lovely faux boxwood wreath with a monogram. Get your customized monogram and choose your colour. This wreath works for year-round use and is super classic.

September

I love this sunflower wreath! Gorgeous! I wish I had time to make one just like it! Check out all the wreaths for every month of the year that craft evangelist has found!

I love yellow and I love sunflowers! This Sunflower Wreath is my September pick for a lovely sunflower wreath to remind you that summer isn’t quite over yet!

October

I’ve decided to go with a Halloween-themed wreath for October, even though Canadian Thanksgiving is in October. I love this adorable spider web wreath, an understated, classic Halloween-themed wreath.

November

So, for the Canadians, we’ll kindly wait until November for the Thanksgiving pick. I love this Thankful wreath, a beautiful wreath to celebrate fall and Thanksgiving and the beauty and abundance of the season.

December

I’m not sure if this beautiful paper red rose & pinecone wreath will be suitable for outside or not, but IT IS SO GORGEOUS. Such a lovely classic wreath for Christmas-time! It’s too bad I already have Christmas wreaths, because I would totally get a couple of these. They’d look so good on my white french doors!

I hope all the wreaths I’ve found will give you some inspiration for making a wreath of your own, or just picking one up from one of these fantastic Etsy sellers! So many gorgeous wreaths! One day I’ll have one for every month of the year!

Farmhouse Style

We bought an old house almost 8 years ago, right before we had our third child, so it’s been pretty overwhelming. It needed some work. We did some work. It needed more work. We did some more work. It needed more work. We did some more work. We’re kind of tired of doing work, but it still needs more.

*Disclosure: some of the following links are affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

We’ve taken a little break over the past little while, but now I’m planning and dreaming again. We’re not really sure this house is going to work for us over the next 10 years, but we need to get some stuff finished up before we try to sell it. One of the important projects is getting our family room renovated properly. There are some ceiling issues from a leaky roof and window that we got fixed up and the flooring needs to be replaced as well. There’s a wall we might take out, but we’re still on the fence about it.

I think our family room would look great decorated in a farmhouse style. I already have some great plans for a DIY project for our table. It’s a double-pedestal oak table, with 2 large leaves. It can seat 10 people when fully expanded. I’m hoping to do this to it:

I’m not a big fan of really obvious fake-weathered things, but I like the rustic vibe of some farmhouse style. Check out these awesome Etsy finds for some pretty awesome farmhouse decor. I’m totally going to try to DIY some of these, or maybe even splurge on a few of them!

I love this rustic chalkboard calendar. I’m a big fan of the chalkboard look, as you may know.

There’s also this beautiful giant clock! I think I might be able to make one of these myself with this tutorial by Gather & Flourish.

I made a similar doily rug to this one for my bathroom, but I improvised a lot with on the pattern, so this way you actually have a pattern if you want to make one yourself. Here’s mine:

Beautiful doily rug made from recycled t-shirt yarn created by craft evangelist

I made this bathmat out of recycled t-shirts!

The same person who designed the doily rug pattern also created a pattern for these lovely crocheted baskets, which I think are absolutely adorable and fit in so well with farmhouse style decor or any decor, really! So sweet!

I’m sure I’ll have some other great farmhouse decor finds for you, since it’s really trendy right now and I’m just getting started with my ideas. You can check out my Farmhouse Style Pinterest Board for more Farmhouse Style inspiration!

This farmhouse style chalkboard calendar would look so great in our family organization hub! I love the chalkboard idea... start fresh each month! Gorgeous clock! This handcrafted farmhouse style clock will add a country feel to whatever room you hang it in. It's made of re-purposed pallet wood with hand painted numbers. The wood is a dark Brazilian rosewood (has a slight tint of red) stain with white numbers & hands.Beautiful crocheted rug pattern. These doily rugs look so cute! Love them!
