Chilly days make me want this....

The smell of fall is in the air and I can't help but want some hot Chai Tea. I found this recipe for a homemade mix and I think tonight might be the night to try it. If I had a fireplace, I would sit by it and drink this. YUM!

Happy Wednesday!

DIY: Vintage Ceiling Fan Pulls

For the past few months I have been looking all around for the perfect ceiling fan pull...the kind you would see in an old Victorian home. The store options were ugly and pricey at $6-$10 each! We needed four and I couldn't convince my husband this was a necessity (can you believe that?). These are the best solution I could come up with, and they cost a whopping $4 total.

First gather the supplies:
  • crazy glue
  • plastic crystals (Hobby Lobby jewelry section)
  • chain & attachments (these are from Ace Hardware, get the bell shaped pull)

Next, cut the chain to the length you want, and attach the small pieces:

Super glue the top of the plastic crystal into the bell shaped pull. You might want to invest in something stronger than crazy glue--maybe gorilla glue or something because I don't know how strong this is. If you use crazy glue just make sure to pull on the chain part and not the crystal (just to be safe). I got a lot of glue on my fingers, so be prepared for that!

Make sure it is good and dry, then hang and enjoy!
