Be Creative: DIY Fall Tabletop Decor

In this fall themed DIY, we’re going to show you how to take some very festive gourds and turn them into unique illuminated table accents! These are sure to wow your guests and definitely bring warmth to your home on the holidays! Thank you to Greycard Photography for always taking the time to stop by our studio and help us document our memories!  Materials Needed:  Gourds Metallic Spray Paint LED Tealights Spoon Hand Saw Drill Materials Continued:  To start, feel free to pick any gourds that you personally feel will match the size of the area you want to decorate. For the purpose of this DIY, we kept them rather small (no larger than 6″x6″). It is important to remember, however, that if the gourds are too small an LED candle may not fit in them and they won’t offer the magical illumination that the larger ones can!  For the painting, we chose a mix of metallics. Our team has found that Design Master in Rose Gold and 24 KT Pure Gold delivers the brightest and truest gold color around, so that’s what we …

DIY: Geometric Hanging Plants

The year 2015 has been a year of exploration for us here at SYED! We are embracing a new geometric look (check out our awesome geometric centerpieces here) in a lot of our designs and absolutely love it! For our latest DIY with Chriselle, we wanted to create an awesome geometric design that could be used to brighten and modernize any room in your house (SYED Secret: We totally used these to decorate our awesome bathroom!). This look is beginning to pop up everywhere, so go grab your supplies and let’s begin! You will need:  ♦ Garden trellis ♦ Gold metallic spray paint ♦ Zip-ties (small preferably)  ♦ Wire cutters   Step One: Take the trellis and bend it in half (we found that beginning at the bottom and working your way up was easiest). Once you’re done, spray-paint the trellis (two coats should get the job done). Repeat the process for the second metal wire and then leave it out to dry in a well ventilated space (for about 15 minutes). ◊ A few tips for …

DIY: Romantic Date Night at Home

We are always so excited when we get the call from the Chriselle Factor’s team asking us to do another DIY Inspiration shoot!  This time we were asked to create a romantic date night at home. What would I want?  I too am a mother (three amazing little boys) and a wife (to an amazing husband) and don’t always have the energy to go out.  Especially when date night on Valentine’s Day means a two hour wait to sit down at a restaurant table or a room full of other couples talking way to loud.  So,let’s make this a night in.  Let’s just cut to the chase and make it dessert in the middle of our living room….This arrangement is designed to awaken the senses for the most romantic Valentine’s night as you’ve never experienced before!  Either skip dinner all together or just cozy down for a romantic treat. We used pillows from the sofa and tossed them to the floor.  The tables were made using a collection of magazines all stacked up to create …
