DIY Sconce

Happy Holidays! I don't know about you all but I am completely drowning in December madness. I always forget how hectic this time of the year is until I am in the midst of it all. Instead of tackling my never-ending to-do list I decided it was the perfect time to share a DIY I made months ago! I know I promised I would post about my hanging bedroom sconces so here you go! Better late than never I always say. The best part is I also created a little flip book of my DIY project on a fun new app call Stellar. Keep reading to see how easy these sconces are to make and don't forget to take a look at my feature on Stellar!
