[ezcol_1third][/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_2third_end]Here at Rod Works we have hopped into Easter.  We love decorating for Easter because there are so many different possibilities. Do you want to keep it more neutral or do you want it colorful and bright? Well we have decorations for any style you have!  We have many ceramic bunny heads that come in different sizes. We love these cause they are fun by themselves or in groups of the three different sizes. There are also super cute on candle sticks!  We have some bunny family statues that can fill in little spots and are more of a vintage look.[/ezcol_2third_end]

[ezcol_1half]Then there is the stuff bunnies the have the extendable legs.   These are great decorations  for when you need some height or you have a tiny space to decorate. Plus these silly bunnies with the dangly legs…so fun for a front entry table.[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end][/ezcol_1half_end]

With towel bars and the toilet in the way it’s hard to decide where to put things in a bathroom!
Alexis Crockett from Rod Works has a few tips for decorating your bathroom.
The bathroom is just like any other room in your home, it’s just tiny!

3 Tips for Bathroom Decorating

1. Decide on a color scheme or theme, this will help keep you on track. There are no rules for a small or big space. Choosing a soft relaxing color for your master bath will give you a spa like feel. But bright dramatic colors are fun in guest bathrooms because they add excitement. Wallpaper is so much better these days, and the possibilities are endless.
Alexis recommends picking out towels for the space first. This helps map out colors and the feeling you are going for.

2. Asses your space. Do you need more storage or can you simply just decorate? If more storage is needed consider baskets or crates that can be hung on the wall. Shelves are a great way to add storage space and a place for decor. If it’s a half bath use that space to be more creative. If the bathroom it has only one purpose (guest use) then pick fun over practical.

3. Go for it! The bathroom is probably the smallest room in your home, so don’t get so overwhelmed. It has permanent fixtures so choosing the “key” pieces are done already. All you have to do is have fun choosing prints, mirrors, fun sayings, greenery etc.

Bathrooms are where you can dare to try something fun and new. Get out of your comfort zone and spice up that mini room!


Gallery Walls and How to Get Started!
No worries f you’re stumped on how to put together a good gallery wall, Rod Works has tips to help!

Set the tone, pick a theme, or a color scheme! Doing this will ensure that the wall looks like a cohesive compilation, and no one piece steals the show. Ideally, the entire gallery is seen as a whole.

Mix old with new. Try to combine old frames with newer pictures or a combination of old and new items. This will give weight to your wall and help it feel personal.

Mix in mirrors, clocks, signs, etc. Add dimensional items to bring life to the wall. They give your eye a rest and help bring the entire wall together. Greenery helps too, especially wreaths and hanging vases!

Map it out. Decide the pieces you would like to use…then lay them out on the floor so you know what feels good. You can map out your frames and other pieces with tape or cut out paper taped to the wall. Once you have it up and it feels right, start hanging those pieces!

The biggest tip is…Just Go For It. The best gallery walls tend to just happen. So collect some awesome pieces, follow the tips above and start hanging!

[ezcol_1third][/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_2third_end]Here at Rod Works we sell banners for every Holiday. We are down to our last Valentine’s banner in the store, so we wanted to show you how to make your own out of our fabulous ribbon. You can make this banner for any season or holiday.[/ezcol_2third_end]

[ezcol_1third]

The first banner we made was out of our large conversation hearts. We just cut 2.5 yards of twine and tied the individual hearts to make a garland.

The hearts are $18.99 and then we just added $2.50 worth of twine.

[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third][/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]

 

[/ezcol_1third_end]

 

The next banners we made out of our burlap.

[ezcol_1third]Step 1: Cut 3 yards of twine, and 2-3 yards of thick burlap depending on how many tabs you want on your banner.[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_2third_end][/ezcol_2third_end]

[ezcol_1third]Step 2: Cut out individual tips and cut edges.[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_2third_end][/ezcol_2third_end]

Step 3: Glue the twine to the tabs.

 

[ezcol_1third]Step 4: Add embellishments. The Valentines banner we cut 7 tabs, and then cut x’s and heart o’s and glued them to the tabs.[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_2third_end][/ezcol_2third_end]

[ezcol_1third]

The welcome banner was also 7 tabs and I just wrote Welcome with a sharpie onto the fine burlap ribbon.

You can write any saying or holiday on the burlap and use any of our different colored burlap.

[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_2third_end][/ezcol_2third_end]

Our ribbon is just $1 per yard, so the total cost to make these was around $6, depending on how long you want to make it. Come in and we can help you get started on making your own personal ribbon banner.
