Seize the Weekend Vol.2

Since last week's "Seize the Weekend" was so much fun to create, I am making it a weekly series. I have scoured the internet to find five diy projects/recipes/crafts that are easy to tackle in a weekend. Check 'em out below!

1.) Make storage pockets from gallery wrapped canvases. I have some old canvases in our garage that I might use to make mail storage for our mudroom. I found this project on craftzine.com. For a step-by-step tutorial click here.


2.) Cook a warm and comforting soup. Even though it is going to be in the 60s here this weekend, I'm hoping that this minestrone soup will make me feel like I am seeking refuge indoors from the elements. This soup is from Better Homes & Gardens. You can find the recipe here.


3.) Create handmade Valentines. Martha (we are on a first name basis) has a wonderful list of ideas here on how to make your own.


4.) Let's keep this fancy schmancy manicure trend going. I found this ombre inspired idea on Pinterest via makeupalley.com.


5.) Create a sunburst mirror using paint stirrers. This beauty comes from one of my absolute favorite blogs, Centsational Girl. For a tutorial on how to create your own mirror, click here.


If you take on any of these projects please email me a picture (brhea.koneman@gmail.com) I'd love to see what you make. I hope that you all have a lovely and creative weekend!

P.S. I'm linking up with one of my favorite blogs today, E Tells Tales :)
