DIY Minimalist Faux Terracotta Vase

DIY Minimalist Faux Terracotta Vase

Welcome back to those of you who enjoyed a little time off for Thanksgiving! I was pretty sick last year during the holiday, so it felt especially great to be able to hop energetically from one family meal to another, tramp through the Christmas tree farm, and gobble up all the tasty morsels I could get my hands on this year.

Today, though, I’m back in the office and extra excited to share a brand new decorative craft idea with you. It’s seriously projects like these that boost my passion for DIY…Guys, that faux looks-like-terracotta vase up there started out as a PVC pipe from the hardware store! I can’t believe how well this project turned out given the humble state of the supplies I started with, but it actually worked, and I’m here to tell the tale today.

Most, if not all, of the DIY projects I tackle start out with an inspiration image, and this entryway photo was mine. If you click that link, take a hard look at the cool mod vase on the lefthand side of the image. When I saw that, I remember thinking to myself, there’s gotta be a way to replicate that silhouette with cheapo supplies.

I spent more time than I should probably admit thinking over the possible things I could use, but I ultimately ended up with a PVC pipe as my jumping-off point. The circular base took weeks longer to brainstorm, though. I thought about a plate that I could spray-paint the same color as the pipe, but I wanted something that was entirely flat. Then, it occurred to me that I could use plain wood craft circles…

I’m not going to give all the goods away (you’ll have to hop to Hunker for that), but just know that this project is super easy and suuuuuper cheap to replicate, so it might be the perfect craft to work on during your holiday time off this year! Get the full scoop and supply list this way.

The Only Black Friday Sale I’m Watching

The Only Black Friday Sale I'm Watching

If you’re new to the blog, then you might not know about the Secret Santa gift exchange my family does. We decided a few years ago that enough was enough, and that we needed to start drawing names so we only needed to buy one gift each (at a $100 max budget).

This new system has been wonderful for lots of reasons, the first being that we’re not all left with arms full of things that we might not necessarily need. The second benefit is that we all spend a lot less money around the holidays.

I cringe to think about how much I used to spend, usually in the blink of an eye, on my family for Christmas before we started the exchange. Don’t get me wrong. I love spoiling my family, but there’s no sense in spending more than I really need to. The $100 limit keeps us from going overboard, and even allows us to indulge in a few Black Friday sale purchases for ourselves, which is kind of a fun change, too, if I’m being extra honest.

Now, I don’t usually go nuts during Black Friday sales (you’ll never see me camped outside a store waiting for some crazy deal—although, to each her own!), but I do typically make a tiny list of sales I want to keep an eye on each year. For me, there’s just one to watch for Black Friday 2019: vitruvi.

This post is not sponsored at all, but I am such a genuine fan of the brand that I wanted to make sure I shared the goods with you guys. I’ve gotten really into essential oils and diffusers this year, and have tried a few different brands and their products. Hands down, my favorite is vitruvi.

I love their aesthetic and designs, and use their products in practically every single room. I have diffusers on each floor of our home that I love to fill with my favorite essential oil blends (Ceremony is a personal favorite!), I put a few drops of Eucalyptus in the shower before stepping inside for a spa-like vibe, and I even made my own oil-infused beauty products using recipes from the book written by vitruvi founder, Sara Panton.

The big vitruvi Black Friday sale kicks off tomorrow at 1:00 pm PST, and runs through midnight December 2. You can get on their waiting list by clicking here (I just put my name through!), that way you’ll get a notification as soon as the sale is live so you don’t miss a thing.

The rumor is that we’ll all get to enjoy 30% off site-wide, and orders over $150 get a free limited-edition pouch while supplies last. If you just can’t wait another moment, though, use the code ‘DREAMGREEN’ for 20% off until the sale starts. I’ve personally got my eye on another diffuser in white, plus their Herbal Bundle. What’s on your vitruvi wishlist?
