Home Sweet Home Hanging Sign

You will need:

*Surface of choice-mine is from Hobby Lobby

*Home sweet home cut-out-Hobby Lobby

*Scrapbook paper

*Mod podge

*Jute rope

*Ribbon/raffia if bow is desired

The first thing I did was mod podge my scrapbook paper to my surface. As you can see my paper wasn’t quite wide enough to fit my surface. This is wear the jute rope comes in.

Next I painted my cut-out with the color Bohemian Blue from the DIY Paint Co.

After my paint was dry, I took my Posca paint pen and added some detailing. You can use any paint pen for this but here is the link for the ones I prefer. https://amzn.to/3je1kOI


Next, I glued my cut out out on to my surface and added two pieces of jute rope to each side to fill the gaps where the scrapbook paper didn’t cover.

To finish of the project I made a simple crisscross bow with ribbon and raffia. If you prefer to hang your sign like I did, simply glue a piece of twine to the back. This turned out cuter than I had imagined it would!

This craft may just be one of the easiest and most budget friendly crafts I have done. These are my favorite crafts to do! All of the items I used came from the Dollar Tree.

The first thing I did was put my piece of floral foam into my galvanized pail.

Now it’s time to start adding in the succulent picks. I like to start with by tallest picks first and then add the rest in until I have covered all of the bare spots.

Lraedesign Bow Tutorials

I get lots of questions on how I make my bows so I thought I would put a blog post together that has two of my favorite go to bow tutorials.

The first bow that I will be sharing with you is my fluffy bow. You can follow the think below to watch my tutorial. I like to use this bow on bigger projects like porch signs or wreaths.

The next bow that I use quite often is my crisscross bow! This bow is super quick and easy! I promise, even if you think your not a very good bow maker, you will be able to do this one! This is my go to bow for smaller projects. You can also adjust the size of this bow simply by adjusting the lengths of your ribbons or by adding additional pieces of ribbon to the base of the bow.

I hope this inspires you to get crafty and have some fun with your bow making!

DIY “Ho Ho Ho” Christmas Sign

You will need:

-board of choice-I found mine at Hobby Lobby

-letters to spell “ho ho ho”-I got mine at Hobby Lobby

-Apple Barrel paint-I used “Tuscan Red” and “Christmas Green”

-Embellishments of choice-I found the truck I used at Hobby Lobby

-Ribbon if a bow is desired

-E6000

-Hot Glue Gun-Click HERE for the affiliate link for the one I use on my live videos.

The first thing I did was paint all of the “H” letters with my “Tuscan Red” color and all of the “O” letters with my “Christmas Green” color. Any paint will work for this.

Once my letters were dry I used E6000 and hot glue to secure them down. If you don’t plan on using your sign outside then you would be fine just using the hot glue, however, if you plan to use your sign outside, you will want to use the E6000 to adhere your letters. The reason for me using both is so that the hot glue will secure the letters down while the E6000 cures as it takes up to 24 hours to fully cure.

Once I had my letters and my truck glued down I moved on to the bow. You can watch my bow tutorial HERE or you can follow the pictures below to make it also.

Once I had my bow made I stapled it to my sign! If your not a bow maker or just don’t want to take the time to make one you could certainly just buy one to use. They have some super cute ones at the store for sure!

And just like that you have an adorable Christmas sign you can use outdoors as porch decor or indoors for wall decor.

Mini Scrap Wood Scarecrow

You will need:

*Piece of scrap wood-I used a small piece of a 2×4

*Burlap

*Jute twine

*Paint-whichever colors you prefer

*Paintbrushes

*Glue Gun-Here’s my affiliate link for the cordless glue gun I use.

The first thing I did was wrap my burlap around the top half of my board for the hat. I did fold the bottom inch or so over to make a brim for the hat.

Once I had the hat glued on I took a piece of jute twine and tied a little bow on the top of the hat to bunch it together.

Now, it’s time for the paint! I like to use smaller paint brushes for this. I started with the eyes and worked my way down the face. I used a round spouncer for the rosy cheeks but if you don’t have one you can certainly just use a paint brush to make them.

Once I had my face painted on, I then made a little raffia bow to stick on the brim of the hat.
