Hello, I’m Carrie from Kenarry: Ideas for the Home! This week I have the joy of introducing you to my friend, Courtney and her blog aptly named, Crafts By Courtney. She’s incredibly talented and super sweet. I’ve loved her work ever since I laid eyes on her Pottery Barn Inspired Watercolor Palette. I still dream of making one for our own arts/crafts room. Courtney’s specialities though are creative kids’ crafts, super fun DIY parties, gorgeous coastal decor and other clever decorating ideas like her seasonal cupcake liner wreaths. Before we jump into all her inspiring projects though, let me tell you a bit more about her!

Besides being an ultra creative blogger, Courtney is a mom to three adorable boys and a wife to Clyde, who occasionally writes for the blog too. She’s been a lifelong crafter and says some of her favorite childhood memories involve crafting with her mom and sister. She’s passing that love for crafting along to her boys:

“I think having that time with your child to sit and be creative and to explore using texture, colors and (most importantly) their imagination is a great way to bond and teach at the same time.”

Here’s Courtney with her family at an Easy DIY Kids Art Theme Party for her son’s third birthday. You’ve got to check out the entire post and see how that Watercolor Palette I’m in love with inspired the whole party!

Now let’s explore some of the ideas you’ll find on Crafts By Courtney. For starters, you’ll find some really clever kid craft ideas for holidays. With Halloween just around the corner, I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out her Spooky Egg Carton Bat Decoration, Kids Spider Handprint Art, or Jack-o-Lantern Art from Apple Stamping.

And while we’re talking about Halloween, she has so many beautiful home decor ideas for fall. I mentioned earlier how she uses cupcake liners to make seasonal wreaths. Don’t you just love this cupcake liner wreath she made for Halloween?

What I really love though are the Mod Podge Fall Coastal Theme Pumpkins she created. They’re such a unique twist on fall decor! She used a similar technique to make Coastal Mod Podge Christmas ornaments too.

I could go on and on about all her fabulous idea for other holidays and seasons, but I want to make sure I share some of other her gorgeous home decor ideas. Courtney’s decorating style is beachy, nautical and fun. I think it would feel like you’re on a vacation every day if my home was decorated like hers. Here are some of my favorites:
