Guest Post: House of Hepworths


Hi Everyone! I'm Allison from House of Hepworths!


I'm really excited to be Guest Blogging here at
Along For the Ride.
Isn't her blog so fun?!!

I love crafting, especially if I can do it for super cheap! I like to buy stuff at thrift stores and transform it into amazing creations. I'm usually on a tight budget, so unless I can make something for really cheap, I don't get to make it.

Besides fun crafts and tutorials, I also have a a free giveaway each Monday and a weekly link up party each Thursday. Stop by for loads of fun!

Here are a few things you'll learn how to make at my blog:

Monogrammed plates are EASY!! You can have one of your own in about 10 minutes.

Making large DICE decor doesn't have to be expensive or use saws. I made this one for a dollar using paper bags.

Wheat grass makes a great focal point! Learn how to paint tins, apply vinyl numbers, and use fake wheat grass in this fun tutorial.

Do you ever feel like your life is too hectic? Create a tranquil environment with your very own Zen Garden.

Do you love decor balls, but not the price? Make some fun ones out of beans for only pennies.

Why have a boring kitchen when you can have a Wowza! kitchen?! Transform your knife block and soap pump into something worth looking at.

Make your own beautiful cloche using a cheese dome and a candle stick.

No party is complete without cupcakes in ice cream cones. Super fun and ca-ute, and also leaves no cupcake liner to throw away.

At House of Hepworths, I not only show you cute stuff I've made, but I tell you exactly how to do it so that you can replicate it and have one of your very own!

If you like what you see, come over to House of Hepworths and poke around!

A special THANKS to Laura for inviting me to join her blog for the day! What a treat!
