Barn Wood “Hop” Easter Sign

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.

Turn Your Old Pots From Drab to Fab!

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!

SPRING BARN WOOD SIGN

Do you have some extra barn wood laying around that your not sure what to do with? Here is a quick and easy idea to not only use up some of your old barn wood but to make some cute home décor as well!

Supplies you will need:
*Piece of barn wood or scrap wood

*S-P-R-I-N-G letters(I used the 4 in. letters from the Wal-mart craft section)

*Mint Berry cardstock from Hobby Lobby. This comes with 80 4.5in x 6.5in. sheets. You could also use single sheets of cardstock or scrapbook paper.

*Mod Podge

*Paint brush

*Scissors

*Hot glue gun- Here is my affiliate link for my cordless glue gun I use…and LOVE!

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?

DIY Easter Wreath

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.

Here are the supplies I used for this project.

*Medium sized grape vine wreath from Hobby Lobby

*Easter egg garland from Hobby Lobby

*Galvanized/wood Easter bunny from Hobby Lobby

*Various Easter ribbon and burlap

*Raffia(optional)

DIY Spring Vase Decor

Are you ready to transition your home for Spring? These cute DIY vases will be the perfect addition!

First step is to gather all of your supplies. The vase came from Dollar Tree for $1 of course. I used two colors of Waverly chalk paint from Walmart. The colors I used were Agave and Peacock. I mixed the two colors until I achieved the teal color I was going for. The floral sprigs came from Hobby Lobby. I bought these on a week when florals were 50% off so were around $3 each. I always have the jute twine on hand so I just used some from my craft stash.

Now it’s time to create! I used a paper plate to mix my paint to the desired color. I then apply the first coat to the vase. Depending on your desired look you may want to do a second coat, I did not.

Once your vase has dried completely it’s time to glue the twine on. You want to be sure that you start and stop the twine on the back side of your vase. Simply add some hot glue and begin to wrap your twine around your vase until you have you desired amount. Once you have finished wrapping the twine secure it with another dab of hot glue on the back of the vase. I like to use my cordless glue gun for this so you don’t have to mess with the pesky cord.

You are now ready to add your florals and decorate your home with your new décor!
