Welcome to another wonderful week here at Happiness is Homemade.
Are you looking for an easy and inexpensive way to change up your decor? Try candles. I have a bunch sitting around the house so I compiled this post for some creative ways to transform them into statement pieces.
Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #281
Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #281 is here and I CANNOT believe how fast July is going! I have really enjoyed going through all of our bloggers' fabulous posts to pick my features, SO much awesome content! We've finally gotten a break in the weather here in Western New York, so now we can go outside without melting into puddles. We don't have air conditioning in our farm house but we ALWAYS have a beautiful breeze that makes things a bit more comfortable.
I'm not lying, I'm not exaggerating - I REALLY REALLY REALLY had the HARDEST time picking the features. My laptop screen is covered in images and url addresses of all the posts I was considering for a feature. Thank you to all the bloggers who keep publishing some awesome material - keep it coming!
This week's features for Happiness Is Homemade #281
As you may (or may not!) recall from our last Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #280 I am looking for ideas to decorate the giant wall behind our TV. I spotted this gorgeous looking DIY craft for Plaster Dipped Flower Art from So Much Better With Age and I thought it would look incredible, not to mention frugal.
The wild blackberries on our property are starting to ripen - I'm going to make this delicious looking Blackberry Clafoutis from Cooking with Carlee, my family will think I'm so classy and sophisticated! 😉
I'm always a sucker for a beautiful wreath to display inside or outside our home! How about this DIY Boxwood Wreath Tutorial from Cherished Bliss - I'll never feature a post that I don't think I could do myself, and this one looks foolproof and so country chic!
We received some new rocking chairs for our front porch where I like to sit in the evening drinking Mommy juice 🙂 I thought about looking at a local store for some cute cushions BUT I can use this tutorial from Curly Crafty Mom on how to make my own DIY Outdoor Seat Cushions instead, much more customizable for sure!
And finally because everything is better wrapped in bacon, my family will love these Easy Bacon Wrapped Green Beans from She Saved to snack on. I like that they are easy to make and give me the crunch I am always looking for!
Since I had such a difficult time picking out my features, I also want to share three honorable mentions that I think you should check out too: DIY One Rope Tree Swing from TeeDiddlyDee
Homemade Fresh Rosemary Spray Cleaner from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S.
Cabana Strip Grey & White Stripe Envelope Pillow Tutorial from It All Started With Paint

I celebrate the messy messes and tidy victories of parenthood with a sigh and a smile!
