Happiness is Homemade #424

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade! I’m Niki from Life as a LEO Wife, and this is my last week choosing the features for the month of April. As always, I had a hard time choosing only five posts to highlight for this party. It had to be done however, so let’s check out this week’s features.

After a nightmare Easter weekend with a family with food poisoning, I was finally able to post again on Tuesday. I shared this adorable farmhouse shiplap frame made with a Dollar Tree canvas. If you want to try shiplap in your home, but aren’t ready for a full wall, dip your toe in with this easy DIY!

Thursday was our monthly Creative Craft Hop, where I joined up with some lovely ladies and we bring you our newest craft tutorials. As it gets closer to us moving into our new home, I get more and more excited! I wanted a new wreath to hang on our door, so I made this round wood door hanger. In the post I shared three free SVGs that you can use on your own wreaths and other projects!

I’ve got some more great spring decor posts, including an adorable spring bunny tablescape, and some home decor printables upcoming, so make sure you don’t miss them by following me on social media and email.

This Week’s Features

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and Denise of My Home of All Seasons has got the perfect Mother’s Day cards for you. In her post, she shares many free printables that you can use as a card or in a gift for your mother or grandmother.

Another perfect gift for mom, or even a beautiful piece to add to your spring decor, is this DIY plaster egg vase made by Purple Hues and Me. This would be fun to do as mother and daughter as well!

Prices are skyrocketing across the county (and the world for that matter) and saving money is more important than ever. It’s also time for spring cleaning, so this reusable fluffy crochet duster cover is the perfect project for you to undertake right now. T’onna from Sew Crafty Crochet shares her tutorial for making a duster cover that you can use over and over, instead of buying Swiffer Dusters every month!

One of my son’s favorite dinners is Salisbury steaks, so I had to feature this recipe by Tamy of Chasing My Life. You all know that I do not love to cook, but I do break down and make him this dish a few times a month. I’m excited to try this with some delicious mushrooms and onions!

Emily of Hunny I’m Home shared these easy DIY Dollar Tree coasters that I just love. In her post, not only does she share the tutorial for you to create your own, she also shares the free SVG that she used! How sweet is that?!

    1. Thanks Jenna! It was rough, but we did get that one picture, so that was great. I was so upset that we didn’t get to go to church though. We only have one car, and my husband works Sundays (usually 6 to 7 days a week), so we rarely get to go to church. No one who lives near us that goes to our church can pick us up and bring us. When we are finally able to get a second car, I will definitely be looking for someone who needs a ride to church. It must be what the Lord is using this time in our lives to teach me!

  1. Niki,

  2. Thanks so much for including my printables in the features this week! Have a wonderful week!
