How to Make a Texas-Sized Homecoming Mum

How to make a Texas sized Homecoming mum! #homecomingmum #whatamum #whataburger

Last fall I had the chance to do something I have never done before, and I thought you might get a kick out of it! I was asked by Whataburger (a popular burger chain in the South, headquartered right here in San Antonio) to make a Whataburger themed homecoming mum. What is a homecoming mum, you ask? This is a great question, and one I had myself! It is quite a unique tradition here in Texas that was completely new to me.

Read on to learn more about this giant Texas-sized homecoming mum, the tradition that inspired it, and a video of me making it in real-time!

How to Make a Starburst Wreath from Paper Straws

How to make a starburst wreath from bamboo paper straws! #starburst #sunburst #strawwreath #wreath

I have always loved the classic starburst design. Speaking of which, do you call it starburst or sunburst? I never quite know which one to go with, but for the sake of this post, I'm sticking with starburst! Regardless, it is one of those decor pieces that will never go out of style. I now have three of them in different rooms in our home. However, this is the first one made out of paper straws. Yep, these are paper straws that look like bamboo. How fun is that? It could totally pass for a high-end bamboo starburst wreath, don't you think?

Don't have any starburst decor in your home yet? Then read on to see how easy it is to make your own!

Do you have those problem areas in your home that you can never get quite right? The ones where you've repositioned some furniture, tried out new throw pillows or accessories, but it still doesn't quite do the trick? At my home, that tricky spot is our foyer. Of course it just has to be the first thing guests see when they come into our home!

I recently partnered with Minted, my go-to company for amazing fine art prints and paper goods from independent artists, to tackle this problem area once and for all. The right piece of art can really transform a space  - read on my tips on how to make it work!
