DIY Mouse Ear Display

Look at this stuff isn't it neat?? Alright! We are swinging into the next DIY. I promise you, this is worth the read! So many of us have really awesome ears and its sad when we have to store them away in boxes to keep them safe. We are coming up on a year of selling The CollectEar Bag and we thought we would extend the ear holding realm to a DIY mouse ear display as well! I did some research and ear holders can be anywhere from $45 to to $60 for nice quality ones.

DIY Mickey Topiary

Last week I shared with you guys my Mickey Themed Bathroom and the feedback was amazing. I'm back this week with an extension of last weeks post! We're heading down the road to DIY. I had added some DIYed items in my bathroom and I wanted to share the process! The Mickey Topiary was actually something I had pinned just for fun. I never thought I would make it until I went on a Hobby Lobby run. I was doing my usual rounds around the store and saw the greenery pictured below. My jaw dropped. It was simply meant to be. I grabbed 3 of them (of course!) and then headed towards the registers. To be honest with you, these...
