8 DIY Burlap Projects Anyone Can Do!

8 DIY Burlap Projects Anyone Can Do! | A Collection of Tutorials from On Sutton Place

Thank you for popping in and taking a look at my burlap projects. I have said many times before that even though I didn't hop on the burlap band wagon right away, I love it now. The two best things about it are the price (it's cheap) and the neutral color. Basically you can afford to make anything and it goes with anything! Before we get to the projects here is a tutorial for How To Wash, Dry and Cut … [Read more...]

I was going to wait until I had everything ready but I just couldn't...so I'm here today with my Fall Collection 2014, Part One.

DIY Fall Watercolor Printables

DIY Fall Watercolor Printables | An Easy Project from On Sutton Place

When I shared my Fall Entry Decor, I said I would be back to show you how to make the watercolor wall art. So here I am and I promise it's really easy. All you need is a phone/tablet (anything that takes a picture) with a watercolor app, a computer (if you can't print from your device) and a printer.  Here are some watercolor photo effect apps for Android and for iPhone I recommend Waterlogue. It's … [Read more...]

Fall Entry Decor

Fall Entry Decor | Ideas and Inspiration from On Sutton Place

With each new season comes renewed energy and a bit of a fresh start. We can switch up our decor, change things around, give ourselves a new look. No time is it more fun than in the Fall. The colors and textures can bring a room to life. Even one pop of orange is sometimes enough to change the whole look of a room. For my entry, I stayed simple and somewhat neutral...but with a pop of orange. The pop of … [Read more...]

Apple Breakfast Muffins

Apple Breakfast Muffins | A Recipe from On Sutton Place

Before we get started talking about these apple breakfast muffins, I have a little back story to share. When my kids were young, I wasn't very good at breakfast. I didn't get up and make pancakes before we went to school. (Does anyone really do that?) My daughter wasn't a breakfast eater anyway, and my son was perfectly satisfied with a bowl of cereal. Or at least I thought he was. If I had known how easy … [Read more...]

DIY Fall Wheat Wreath

DIY Fall Wheat Wreath | A Tutorial from On Sutton Place

I hope you are all proud of me for waiting until September was officially here to post my first new fall project! I thought if I did it earlier, it would definitely be overkill. I always start outside and couldn't wait to make something new for the door. My one goal for the front porch was to try and come up with door decor that didn't involve a grapevine wreath. Not that I don't like them because I … [Read more...]

10 Free Fall Printables

10 fall printables fi

Sometimes when I'm working on behind-the-scenes blog stuff, I actually inspire myself. I go back, for whatever reason, to an old post and can hardly remember writing it or taking the pics. This happened recently when I was looking for fall printables. I honestly didn't know there were so many. I thought I would round up the best ones and put them all in one place. I also added three brand new ones at the … [Read more...]

Zucchini Bundt Cake

Zucchini Bundt Cake | A Recipe from On Sutton Place

Up today is a really hearty zucchini bundt cake that could actually do double duty. It's tasty enough to serve for dessert but it's also perfect to serve as a coffee cake. Either way, this recipe is a winner. No odd ingredients and it's super easy to throw together. You can use fresh grated zucchini or zucchini that's been frozen. My bundt pan was recently retired due to old age. It had definitely seen … [Read more...]
