When you say ‘Icicle lights’ most people think of Christmas decor. Well hey, at least I do ok?! I’m PUMPED UP for Christmas already and it’s not even summer yet.

Most of you have summer on the brain which means, patios, beaches, outdoors, summer nights and these are the PERFECT lights for entertaining.

K… I know this sounds like  I sell these things but I don’t.

I personally think these would be super cute for an outdoor patio or balcony. What about you? Let me know in the comments below. I always love hearing from you.

Check back tomorrow for the start of ‘ROOM ENVY’.

DIY: PATIO PILLOWS

DIY Pillows

Well, it’s that time of year again… patio season! Is your patio ready? Do you have some old patio chairs that could use a bit of a tune up? Some colour? I’ve got the perfect solution: a new pillow! Don’t have the money for new pillows!? Why not make them.

This week I made 2 patio pillows. I purchased a metre of fabric for just $8.00 at Fabric Land and I just happened to have 2 old pillows that needed a makeover. What you'll need- Pillows2

 

Here’s my DIY Patio Pillow Tutorial:
