Walmart Bunny Makeover

How cute is this little wood bunny I found at Walmart? Although it is super cute just the way it is, I had a different vision for it!

The first thing I did was run a sanding block over it to smooth it out.

Next, I used the color “mint chip” from the DIY Paint Co. brand and painted the top of the bunny. I left the sides pink for added dimension.

Once that was dry, I then took my waverly brush and dabbed it in my DIY Dark Wax(also DIY Paint Co. brand) and light brushed it across the top of the bunny. You can make this as light or as dark as you want by adjusting the amount of wax you apply.

Next, I took a piece of pink burlap and used mod podge to adhere it to the ears and then trimmed around it with scissors to fit the ears,

To finish off the ears, I took jute rope and outlined around them and added a cute buffalo check bowl

Now, it’s time to get creative with the face. I used POSCA paint pens and buttons for mine.

So, what do you think? You can always change this up to fit your style but I think she turned out pretty darn cute.

Dollar Tree Velvet Pumpkin Makeover

You may have seen these cute little velvet pumpkins at your local Dollar Tree. I knew I had to grab some as soon as I seen them. They are cute just the way they are but my mind already had other plans to make them even cuter!

I did a little something different with each one. With the navy pumpkin I simply took some jute twine and wrapped the stem. I did use my floral cutters to cute the wonky edges off of the stem before I wrapped it.

Next, I took some raffia and tied a cute bow around the stem. I grabbed these cute little Fall leaves at Hobby Lobby so I added that to the raffia bow to finish it off.

For the pink pumpkin I started off by removing the stem.

Once I had the stem removed, I then took a cinnamon stick and stuck that in the center for the stem.

Next, I took some skinny buffalo check ribbon and tied a bow. I then did the same thing with some raffia and glued that on top of the buffalo check bow. To finish this one off I used a few of the same leaves from the pack I got at Hobby Lobby.

For the last pumpkin I started by again removing the stem.

I then tucked all of the material back in the center of the pumpkin. I took the same skinny buffalo check ribbon I used on the pink pumpkin and used that to decorate my pumpkin. I used three pieces of ribbon and simply wrapped it from the center of the pumpkin under around and stuck the end in the center to secure it down.

I used a stick for the stem on this one and kept it simple with a cute raffia bow.

So, what do you think? Can you believe these started off as $1 pumpkins from the Dollar Tree?!

2021 Fall Hobby Lobby Finds

I love when Hobby Lobby puts out their new seasonal decor! It’s like therapy for me to just walk through isle by isle and try and come up with my color scheme for each season as I decorate my home. I know everyone doesn’t have access to a Hobby Lobby in their town so I like to share a blog post so you can get a sneak peek too!

How cute is this color scheme? I love the pops of light pink!

I am absolutely loving this theme! Instead of changing out all of my old decor, I am thinking I will just add in pops of the navy and purple. So many choices!

As always, they have the cutest selection of ribbon!

So what do you think? Are you ready to go shopping and start decorating for Fall? I know I sure am! Which color scheme is your favorite?

XOXO Valentine’s Decor

You will need:

*Surface of choice-I picked this sign up from the Dollar Tree

*Decor Art “Green Lagoon” paint

*Apple Barrel “Snow White” paint

*Wooden hearts-Dollar Tree

*Scrapbook paper-Hobby Lobby

*Mod Podge

*Ribbon

*Jute twine

First, I turned my sign over and painted the back with my green lagoon paint. Once that had dried I took my white paint and dry brushed over my base color to get my desired look.

Next, I traced my hearts on to my scrap book paper, cut them out and used mod podge to adhere the paper to the hearts.

Now, its time to put the project together. I found this buffalo check ribbon at Hobby Lobby and thought it would be cute to use for the “X”. Then obviously I used the hearts for the “O”. Looking cute already but of course we have to add a bow and why not a little jute twine. For the bow I just used a few different patterns/textures of ribbon and simply crisscrossed them to make my bow.

2020 Christmas Tree

Our tree this year is definitely one of of my favorites we have ever had. As many of you know, we get a real tree every year. Now, usually we have our tree up way before now, but we didn’t have fresh trees available to us until this week. So you better bet we were one of the first people to get one when they finally did show up! Haha!

This year our tree looks a little different than usual. Each year I get my kiddos a new ornament for the tree. This year instead of them putting their ornaments on our main tree in our family room we decided they would put their ornaments on their little trees in their bedrooms. So that meant that I got the main tree all to myself and of course I had to write about it! Now, don’t get me wrong, I love seeing all of the kids’ ornaments hanging on our main tree but as you can imagine we are getting quite the collection of ornaments so they decided they are just gonna pick a few of their favorites to add to the trees in their rooms.

So…onto our main tree. I simply started off by using this beautiful deco mesh that I found at Hobby Lobby. I started at the top and worked my way down to the bottom just tucking and twisting the deco mesh until I got it the way I wanted it.

Yes, I know…it doesn’t look like anything special at this point…But, just wait!

Next, I added the lights. I use LED lights that can change from white to multi-colored depending what my theme is each year.

Now, its time to fill in the holes and make the tree look full. I like to use a variety of different picks and ornaments. The ones I used this year I found at Hobby Lobby and Walmart. I also used this Dollar Tree Truck that I made over to fill the big hole in the front of the tree. You can find the blog post with on how I created the truck HERE!

This may just be my favorite part of the tree!

Next, I just continued filling in the tree with my picks.

I also added this “Farmhouse Greetings” ornament that I made on a live. You can find that video HERE.

And to finish the tree off we added our star! I found this at Wal-mart a few years back.

I absolutely LOVE how our tree turned out this year!
