If you’re anything like me, you’ve been avidly following along with Joanna’s bedroom makeover in #mytinybungalow. Last summer she finished the dining room, complete with gauzy white curtains. But the projects are never done! To help give the dining room ooone more finishing touch, we wanted to update the simple window treatments with a boho-chic vibe. So with a few skeins of embroidery floss from the craft store and some cotton clothesline rope, we created a simple curtain tie back with a satin tassel.
The last few weeks of winter are the worst! It’s when you really start to notice all the tiny things in your home that make it so cold. Small details, like an old window or drafty door begin to take their toll. So when Joanna mentioned that her tiny bungalow had a drafty door, I knew just what project share next: a draft stopper! We used a fabric dying method from our most popular post, how to ice dye, for a boho-chic look that matches Joanna’s living room.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and this year, instead of obsessing over cupid’s arrow, I’m making a special treat for my girlfriends to enjoy. Both Joanna and I have been focusing on taking better care of ourselves, essentially taking time to indulge in all-important self-care. So why not treat your best friend to the gift of self-care for Valentine’s Day? We whipped up a batch of bath salts filled with dried flowers and packaged them in easy dip dyed canvas bags for the perfect heart-felt gift.
Confession: my desk is almost always in a state of complete chaos. From brightly colored washi tape rolling around and little every-day items like earphones and face mist (a true desk essential), I really needed something to corral my odds and ends. When I saw this dark green leather, I knew just what to do! A leather catchall is timeless and this version is super easy. All you need is one piece of leather and a few things from the toolbox.
For this post, I received glassware from Riedel. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting content that keeps Jojotastic going.
Dear 2016, we’ve had enough of your nonsense. Around the studio, we are majorly looking forward to a new year, for lots of reasons. To me, New Year’s Eve is all about looking forward and planning for new things to come… not to mention dressing up in sparkly outfits and toasting champagne! This year I plan to welcome 2017 with a little soiree, surrounded by a few close friends. So to decorate, I chain stitched ‘cheers’ in four different languages onto a set of cloth cocktail napkins for a sophisticated DIY.
Last year around this time we did DIY-ed cinnamon stick himmeli to make natural decorations inspired by traditional Finnish ornaments. This year we’re taking things up a notch and making a full garland of them! Perfect for hanging above the mantel or on your front door, this project uses a few things that might already be hiding in your pantry to invite festivities and natural elements into your space.
Now that daylight savings time ended, we have quite a few dark and rainy nights ahead (oh, Seattle…). But there’s a silver-lining within those rain clouds… a steaming cup of hot cocoa! We bumped it up a notch and created a lavender-infused version for an extra special treat to look forward to on chilly nights. You can also give these stir spoons as thoughtful, handmade gift during the holiday season. Spread the cocoa cheer with a batch of chocolate and lavender stir spoons — keep reading to learn how to make your own!
