Adorable PIXAR Decorations You Need in Your Life

Besides carbs, Leonardo DiCaprio, and beer, I also love a good Pixar movie! Whenever I need a good cry, there’s nothing that will get to me like watching Up, or Wall-E…and don’t even get me STARTED on Toy Story 3. “So long, partner…” OMG THE TEARS!!! THE TEARS ARE REAL!!!!

So despite the fact that Pixar loves to just pull your heart out and stomp on it using only the sweetest of characters, their movies often have some real-life messages that resonate with you no matter what your age. And just because you’re not a kid doesn’t mean you can’t surround your tiny apartment with reminders of your favorite childhood friends, right?

So I’ve scoured ETSY and found a few grown-up yet fun ways to decorate your apartment, house, or room with all things PIXAR!

10 Clever Uses for Bundt Cake Pans

They may be vintage in design, but Bundt pans can prove to be very beneficial both inside and outside of the kitchen.

If you’re not a fan of cakes with holes… My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 movie funny comedy family

You can use Bundt cakes for several other things!  Great for organizing and decorating, a Bundt cake pan can come in handy all over the house!

10 Clever Uses for Bundt Cake Pans

Bundt-Cake-Pans

Make an Organizer: Stack Bundt pans of different sizes to create a decorative organizer for food, craft supplies, or other nick-knacks. Personalize it further by spray painting the pans to match your décor.

Make a Wreath: Spray paint an old Bundt pan to look like an apple, pumpkin, or peppermint candy. This is a fun and unique decoration that will surely add character to your home.

Organize Makeup: Keep your counter clean of clutter with this cute makeup organization idea. Use the hole in the Bundt pan to hold your makeup brushes and place your must-have’s right in the bowl.

Roast a Chicken: This is a genius way to roast your chicken. With the chicken standing upright in the oven, the fat will drip off the chicken and into the bowl, making this a clean and healthy roasting alternative.

Peel Corn on the Cob: Not a fan of eating corn ON the cob? Remove it from the cob by placing the bottom of the cob in the small hole in the Bundt pan. Run your knife down the cob and all those sweet little kernels will collect in the bowl of the pan.

Create a Wind Chime: Old antique Bundt cake pans are great for this project. Attach ropes of beads, bells, buttons, or charms to the Bundt pan and hang it outside for a cute, eclectic decoration that will liven up any garden.

Make Wall Décor: Arrange Bundt pans of various sizes and shapes on the wall for a cool 3D decoration that is great for both living rooms and kitchens. Color the pans if you’d like, or leave them as is for a cool rustic touch.

Create a Party Sandwich: Don’t worry about ordering subs for your party, create a party sub right in your kitchen with a Bundt pan! This could easily feed 8 to 10 people, depending on the size of your pan, and it’s a fun activity to do for family dinner night!

Make a Decorative Ice Cube: Keep punch and other drinks cold with a Bundt pan ice cube. Use a small Bundt pan to create a decorative ice ring and place in punch bowl to keep your drink cold. For an extra decorative touch, drop cranberries, flowers, or herbs in the ice cube for added color and flavor.

Create a Garden: Create fun planters using old Bundt pans. Try herbs or succulents for a cute garden decoration. A Bundt pan with succulents would also make a great housewarming gift for friends and family.

Ladle Candle Holders

Having a romantic dinner at home?  Set the mood in the kitchen to help arouse all your senses.

Ladle Love!

I found this technique in a magazine years and years ago and thought it was so rustic and smart.  Hang old and/or antique ladles from a long pole with S hooks or from a mantelpiece.  Simply place a tealight candle in the spoon to help set a soft romantic glow.  This is stunning when you use more than 5 ladles.  You can easily find ones of different sizes, shapes, and colors at garage sales and thrift shops.

How to Turn Pie Tins into Wall Art

Pie tarts ain’t just for baking.  Here’s a clever way to display tart pans that you either don’t use anymore or that are just too precious to toss.

I love this idea for cheap and easy kitchen decor.  You could also use pie tarts as unique picture frames or for cool holiday decorations.  If you’re looking to hang the tins on the wall, consider combining average size tins with mini pie tins for a really cool art piece.

Check out various garage sales and thrift stores for worn tins and get crafty!

DIY Food Storage Cabinet

For those of us living in small spaces, it can be hard to store all of our food in the 3 cabinets that are provided for us…therefore, we’re left to store our food out in the open…for people to judge us 🙂

Not so anymore.

Food Storage System

I created this food storage system with a grid storage unit from Target and 12 Christmas boxes from Target that were marked down to 90% off.  I mean…is that a steal or what?  All I did was wrap the boxes in shipping paper and glued a tag on each one, saying what goes in each box.  If you’re feeling really crafty, you can stamp or decorate the paper…or even use wrapping paper…to give your kitchen/dining room/room where your food is stored a whole new look.  This is also great for toys, tools, and craft supplies.

How to Add Lemon Yellow to Your Kitchen

I adore lemons.  I love how they smell, I love their color, I love their taste, and I love the many delicious desserts I can make with them!

One day I got a bit of an inkling to “redo” my kitchen…meaning hanging up a picture and buying new towels…since I don’t really have a “kitchen”, per se…

Regardless, I wanted to incorporate lemons into my decor.  They are bright and festive and the soft lemon yellow is just the warm hue I was looking for.

A few years ago I bought a set of 3 wall boxes on super sale.  They were an ugly brown color and I figured I’d just buy them and repaint them.  WRONG.  The paint didn’t stick.  So I brought out the big guns…the modge podge glue.

I went through my paper scraps and found 3 colors I loved and decoupaged the wood boxes and hung them above my counter.  Now they hold salt and pepper shakers, the fixings for tea, and my kitchen timer instead of collecting dust in my closet.

Decoupaged wooden boxes

As my boxes dried, I took the three pieces of paper I used to decoupage and headed out to Crate and Barrel for some new towels.  I ended up coming home with new bowls and cookie cutters.

Finally, I was looking for something to “tie the whole room together”…as the Dude would say.  Since lemons were my inspiration, I went to Google and printed off photos of 12 delicious-looking lemon desserts.  I taped them to a piece of yellow tissue paper and framed it.  Tah dah!  Kitchen art.

Kitchen art!

This was an unbelievably easy craft day and both items only took about 1 hour each to make.  The best thing about it is that you can customize it to any kitchen.  And just because you live in a place with four cabinets doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself of a kitchen face lift!

Fashionable Towel Holder Idea

So my mom and I were browsing a local shop in our “downtown” area and I stumbled upon this adorable idea for napkin storage.  The store manager bought this clothing model at a rummage sale and simply pinned different napkins around the base to make a skirt!  How cute is that?

Napkin dress

This would be adorable to do with old scarves, ribbons, and extra pieces of fabric.  Make sure to use small needles so you don’t hurt the fabric in any way.
