This week I took my annual look at what did best on the blog during the past year.
It’s a great way to understand what readers enjoyed, as well as a fun time to revisit some posts from earlier in the year.
Sometimes I get surprised – and this year I did again. I’m not sure what made the #1 post from this year stand out above the others, but it was certainly a fun one to make. Maybe you thought so too.
So here they are – the top 5 posts from 2017:
Succulents have been popular for a while now, and I decided to add a little faux version to my front door last spring with this upcycled thrift store find. I learned something fun about this little metal basket after posting this project – it’s not unique! Several Hometalk readers told me they have seen/own the very same basket.
This summer project was a favorite. When a friend gave me these vintage canning jars, I knew one thing for sure – I didn’t want to cover them in paint. I wanted to preserve their natural beauty, but still find a good use for them.
Succulents weren’t the only thing showing up on the door last spring. I adapted the 2016 Fall DIY Tile House Number Door Decor to make a light and pastel version for spring. Soft greens, cream, and pink dominate this project, creating a gentle welcome for spring.
It was a bittersweet time – the fall edition of Blogger Challenge ended our 2-year run of seasonal projects between a group of blogging friends. I enjoyed the creativity stretching when a new theme was chosen and when I heard embroidery hoops were the theme for fall, I had to do some thinking! Embroidery hoop projects abound, but I wanted something different and unique. That was the beginning of these little fall pumpkins.
And the most popular post of 2017…
#1 – Beach Shells Canvas
Apparently spring and summer posts resonated the strongest on the blog this year. The Beach Shell Canvas project finished as the most popular post, but only edging out the Embroidery Hoop Pumpkins by just over 120 views. It’s also from this year’s Quick Projects category – a growing group of posts for the most time-crunched Creatives.
And that’s a wrap for 2017!
