Blessed Shamrock Shelf Sitter

You will need:

~surface of choice-mine is from Hobby Lobby

~scrapbook paper-mine is from Hobby Lobby

~mod podge

~sanding block

~Shamrock

~jute

~button

I found my surface in the Hobby Lobby clearance section for $1.99. I take a stroll down the clearance isle every time I go to the store. You never what kind of deals you might find! The scrapbook paper I used is also from Hobby Lobby.

The first thing I did was mod podge my scrapbook paper onto my surface and then sanded any excess paper that was hanging over.

Next, I glued on my shamrock with hot glue and E6000 both. This shamrock was from my shop last year but any shamrock will work.

To finish off my cute little shelf sitter, I added a jute bow with a button in the center.

What do you think? Easy, budget friendly, and cute, yes please! Will you be giving this one a try?

Dollar Tree Fall Leaf Makeover

You all know how I like to makeover my Dollar Tree finds so here’s another one for ya! I found this leaf cut-out and I instantly had ideas for it! If you see one of these cut-outs be sure to snatch it up!

Supplies you will need:

*Leaf cut-out

*Walnut gel stain

*White paint

*Blessed word cut-out, I got mine in a pack from Hobby Lobby

*Merlot Waverly chalk paint

*Paint brush

*Jute twine

*Raffia-optional for bow

*Glue gun-click here for my affiliate link to my glue gun.

The first step is to stain your leaf. I used a paper towel and rubbed a light coat all over.

Next, I used my waverly brush and dabbed it with just a tiny amount of white paint and lightly brushed that over my stained leaf. The lighter you want your leaf the more times you will repeat this step.

Next, I used my Merlot colored paint to paint my “blessed” word.

Once that dried, I used my E6000 spray adhesive to glue my word down. You can get this spray with my affiliate link HERE! If you haven’t tried this yet, it is a game changer!

To finish my leaf, I wrapped the stem with jute twine, added a cute little raffia bow, and glued a piece of twine on the back for a hanger! Easy enough, right? I can’t get over how cute this turned out! I’m gonna chalk this up as another Dollar Tree win!
