The first step is to lay all four of the wood slats down and glue four popsicle sticks to the back to make your surface. If you choose, you can use a ready made surface to save you time.
Your surface should look like the one below once you have done the previous step.
Next, I used the color black currant to paint my surface. I used a chip brush for this as I didn’t want 100% coverage.
As that dried, I took my ribbon and stacked each design together and cut them in the shape of flower petals. I ended up not using the color on the bottom right. All three of the ribbons I used came from Hobby Lobby.
I then arranged my flower petals somewhat in the shape of a flower. For the center of the flower I used rope twine and simply wrapped it around in circles until all of the inside edges of my flower petals(ribbon) were covered.
Now we have a our cute little flower. I wanted to put something in the center to hide my hot glue from where I started my jute rope so I painted a half wood bead with the same black currant color and glued that in the center. You can find the half wood beads like I used right HERE using my affiliate link.
I just love how this turned out! The perfect piece of decor for Spring and even Summer if you please!
Hello friends! I was at Target awhile back and found these wooden floral stems and this surface both in the “Dollar Spot” or “Bullseyes Playground.” I knew right away that these would make a cute project!
For this project, you will need:
*Surface of choice-mine is from Target
*Wood flower stems-Target
*Hot glue gun/gorilla glue
*Ribbon of choice for bow if desired
I prefer to use this along with hot glue when doing these type of projects. The hot glue is obviously going to be the quickest, and the gorilla glue is for longevity. You can also use E6000 in place of the gorilla glue.
First, I laid my flowers out and arranged them the way I wanted and then I used my hot glue and just a dab of the gorilla glue to adhere them to my surface. Just a heads up…the gorilla glue does expand as it dries so just a dab with do the job!
I have the light pink floral stem left and decided I wanted to put that right in the center of the bouquet. I simply broke the stem off so it wouldn’t hang over the edge and then glued it right on top of the dark pink flower’s stem.
Now it’s time for a bow of course! This is my go to ribbon for lots of projects. You can find this at Hobby Lobby.
For the bow, I took my ribbon and rolled it end over end 5-6 times. The length of my ribbon stack was approximately 6 inches. I then tied it in the center with jute twine and the “fluffed” my bow.
How stinkin’ cute! I added a cute little button to finish off the bow.
I love projects like this! Cute, budget friendly, and easy!!! I hope this inspires you to get crafty and give this a try!
To start, I simply used my Apple Barrel paint to paint my letters. You can find the paint I used at Wal-mart. I used “Pink Parfait” for the “H” and “Aquamarine” for the “P”.
Next, I took my piece of scrapbook paper, traced my oval shape onto it, cut it out and then mod podged it onto my oval. I then like to brush a little mod podge on the top and around the edges to seal the paper down.
Next, I used E6000 to adhere my pieces to my barn wood. I used the E6000 versus hot glue so I could use this sign outdoors also. Hot glue will not not uphold outside with the varying temperatures. Keep in mind this will take up to 24 hours to cure.
To finish my sign off, I simply took a few different pieces of ribbon and made a quick bow. I found both of these patterns of ribbon at Hobby Lobby.
I am in love with how this turned out. Now to decide if I want to keep this indoors or use it to spruce up my porch. If you will be using your sign outdoors be sure to spray your sign with a polyurethane or clear coat to seal it.
Do you have old planter/pots laying around your not sure what to do with or maybe you just need to brighten them up a bit? Turn them from drab to fab in no time with this quick idea!
I am not a huge navy blue fan but these pots were still in great shape so I thought why not just spruce them up a bit and give them some love!
All you need for this project is a little spray paint and a pot and your set!
Once I had my pots all cleaned up, I went to town spray painting the pots! I used the Rust-oleum French Lilac and Seaside Satin colors for my pots! I absolutely love how this color turned out! I did two coats on each pot letting each coat dry for 15 minutes.
Looking better already right? Once I had applied both of my coats of paint and let the pots fully dry, it was time to add the glitter! If you have never used the Rust-oleum glitter paint…you are missing out! This stuff is awesome! It was just the touch these pots needed to finish them off!
Once your glitter has dried you will want to spray your pots with a clear coat to protect them. You are now ready to fill your pots with soil and plant your favorite flowers!
So…what do you guys think? I had been trying to think of something I could do to brighten up my rock bed in the front of my house and this was the perfect project to do that!
The first thing you will want to do is trace each letter onto your desired piece of card stock or scrapbook paper and then cut them out.
Once you have all of you letters traced and cut out you will then use the Mod Podge to glue the paper on the letters. After I have my paper glued on I like to paint a light coat over the top of the paper also to help seal the letter. Keep in mind the Mod Podge does try clear!
You are now ready to hot glue your letters on your piece of wood. You can position your letters vertical or horizontal on your board. I decided I liked my letters horizontally for this project.
That’s all there is to it! Super cute and easy enough, right?
Who doesn’t love some easy diy holiday décor? This wreath is super cute and very easy to make! I am sharing my live video of me making the wreath as I thought it would be easier for you to watch rather than for me to try and explain. The bow is very easy to make but can be a little tricky to try and explain.
