Easy Romantic Updo

 Hey friends! Today I wanted to share with you an updo that I have been loving lately. I'm currently in Cosmetology school so I have been really into trying new styles. This one is super easy and I love how it turned out! 

Start off by sectioning your hair into 3 sections. (2 in the front, one in the back.) 

Next, take two bobby pins and pin hair in a voluminous bump. 

After that, take the back section of your hair and split it into two sections. 

After splitting the hair, rope braid one side, pull it back around your fingers and pin it in place. Repeat on the other side. 

After the back section of your hair is completed, twist the front pieces of hair and pin them back around the bun. 

Pull pieces out around your face to frame your face and you're done! Super easy and cute. 

Let me know what you think! 

"Dear friends, since God so loved  us, we also ought to love one another."

DIY Watercolor Christmas Name Tags

Hey ya'll! Today I wanted to share another super simple and fun DIY for Christmas.
All you need is: 
Watercolor paper
A fine tip pen or marker 

I started out by tearing the pieces into small rectangular shapes, then gently painting them with watercolor - adding a lot of water to get a smeared effect. 
After letting them dry, I wrote the names on them. I would recommend the very fine tip marker, the one I used wasn't quite thin enough but other than that- I like the way they turned out! 
Perfect for gift name tags! 

"And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved...."
-Acts 2:21

DIY Christmas Ornaments With Acrylic Paint

Growing up I loved to make Christmas ornaments with my mom and brothers for our tree. I have always loved putting a personal touch to everything- it's just how I am! So this year I thought I would attempt too be a little crafty and do some DIY Christmas ornaments. 

What you need: 

I start out by pouring blue paint in the clear ornament, and turning it upside down on a paper towel to let the paint cover the inside of the ornament. 

  Next, I took the eraser end of a pencil and dotted white polka dots all over the ornament.

After the polka dots dried, I tied a ribbon onto the ornament and hung it on my tree. Super easy and simple! 

Thanks for reading!

DIY Watercolor Christmas Cards

I have always loved adding personal touches to my Christmas gifts. One of my favorite ways to do that is by making my own Christmas cards! These DIY watercolor cards are super easy and fun! 

Items needed: 

For the wreath Christmas card, I started out by tracing the lid of a mason jar to get a perfectly round shape.

 Then I used green watercolor to paint the garland.

After the garland was completed, I used red watercolor to make red dots to look like berries!

Then I wrote Merry Christmas with my black marker and I'm finished! 

For the Christmas tree card, I simply moved my paint brush back and forth in the shape of a Christmas tree. I didn't have any light green paint in my pallet, so I mixed the green with yellow to get the color I was wanting! 

This card was super simple and I loved how it turned out! 

Which one is your favorite? What's your favorite Christmas DIY?
