Leaf and Pumpkin Wall Hooks

Leaf and pumpkin wall hooksRose and I had this wonderful idea to make these fall inspired leaf and pumpkin wall hooks. The first struggle we had to figure out was how to attach a hook to the leaf and pumpkin. Once we decided we could cement/plaster it onto the back of the leaf and pumpkin it was smooth sailing…

Until we suddenly realized neither of us could nail or drill holes into our nice, clean walls at our homes least we want to endure the wrath of our moms. Desperately missing apartment living we had to come up with someway to actually take pictures of said leak and pumpkin wall hooks without ruining any walls.

Rose thought that we might be able to jerry-rig them to a doorway, but since they are meant to hold something heavy this would not do. I poked around my basement a little bit to see if maybe there was an old bookshelf we might be able to resurrect and fake as a wall.

No such luck, until I turned a dusty spider filled corner and found this giant piece of plywood. Cue light bulb and dancing girl emoji – we could definitely drill into the plywood and it was big enough to look like a wall. Woo! A couple of wood-stain intoxicated hours later and I had the whole piece of wood dyed and ready to go.

Summer Pink Flamingo Painted Doormat

Pink flamingo painted doormat | Popcorn & ChocolateI don’t know about you guys but our summer has been a busy one. Both Rose and I are in a sort of transition period between jobs and apartments and it has put a lot of stress on both of us. We sadly (and begrudgingly) had to move out of our apartment together for the rest of the summer until we know what our next steps in life will be. We’ve both been busy bees and have tried to keep up with the blog and our Etsy as much as we can. We do have a few posts for you planned so stay tuned for some fun goodbye summer/hello school themed posts coming up. But, in the meantime enjoy this pink flamingo painted doormat that we made for Homedit. This DIY was the last to be done in our apartment and it seems fitting that it is a doormat that we can take to our next apartment (wherever that will be)! Summer pink flamingo painted doormat We are excited for what the future brings and hopefully your future will bring you this wonderful DIY summer flamingo painted doormat.
