How to Hide the Cords from Your Wall-Mounted TV

When we purchased our very first wall mounted TV, both my husband and I were so excited.  It enabled us to get ride of the entirely too bulky entertainment center that once lived on our entire living room wall, to a simple shelf.  We started with the TV on top of the shelf, because it came with a stand but quickly realized we wanted it mounted to the wall.  That was easy enough.  Bryan mounted a swivel mount and in twenty minutes it was up on the wall.  While I was completely happy with it, the cord now really stood out.

DIY Mickey Cupcake Stand – Ten Minutes!

You might laugh at how simple this really is!  Although this likely wont be our last Mickey Mouse party (because hey, we love the Mouse)!  I really like to try to make things simple, and repurpose when I can.  When I was looking at cupcake stand ideas, I really wanted to work with what I had and not go out and purchase something.  I looked online for ideas and didn’t find one I loved but saw something similar made with a yogurt cup for a small tray and thought it would be perfect, just bigger.

For this movie night, I decided we would create a fun movie sign.  I wanted to create something that was simple, didn’t cost a lot and that the children could help with.  My handwriting may not be perfect but we were sure excited with how our sign turned out!
