DIY Inspiration from Traveling Mama

Discovered via decor8, I am loving some of the sweet and simple DIY projects dreamed up by Traveling Mama. From darling paper garlands to cheerful paper lanterns hung in a bedroom, she uses paper to dress up ordinary spaces in unexpected ways. Likewise, a little crafting is all it takes to add a little charm to a party or celebration. The beauty of these ideas is their simplicity – perfect for even the most novice of crafters – and their budget-friendly cost. Use scraps of paper, swatches of leftover gift wrap or inexpensive scrapbook or construction paper. Beyond that all you’ll need is a little time and a few basic craft supplies like scissors and glue.
