Thankful Wood Bead Hanging Sign

You will need:

*unfinished round wood bead hanger-mine is from Hobby Lobby

*Waverly “moss” paint-

*DIY Antique Wax-any wax will work

*burlap-mine is from Hobby Lobby

*thankful tag-comes in a pack of three from Hobby Lobby

*Apple Barrel “antique white” paint

*Fall colored raffia-Hobby Lobby

The first thing I did was paint the round part with my “moss” colored paint.

I then took a wipe and dipped it in my DIY wax and lightly rubbed that over the part I had just painted.

Next, I took a piece of rust colored burlap and cut the wired edges off to give it the frayed look on the edges. I then glued that down followed by the thankful tag on top of that.

I decided I didn’t want to leave the wood beads the natural colored but also didn’t want them to be too bold so I settled on “antique white” for them. I just put a small dab on a wipe and wiped around the beads to give them just a little bit of color.

And of course to finish this cuteness off I had a simply raffia bow using some Fall colored raffia I found at Hobby Lobby.

I then lightly went over the rest of the sign with this same wipe to give it a little more color and dimension.

Burlap Hop Banner

You will need:

*burlap banner(Hobby Lobby)

*Spring colored paint

*Spouncers

*H-O-P letters(Hobby Lobby)

*Glue gun-click here for the cordless glue gun I use

The banner I found at Hobby Lobby came with 12 pennants on it so I cut 5 of them off to make a shorter banner. You will want to lay down something under the pennants before you begin painting. I then took my spouncer and started making polka dots on the pennants. I used two different sizes of spouncers for this.

Once the paint was dry, I then glued the letters on the three center pennants leaving two on each side of HOP.

To hang the banner you simply tie a loop on each end of the jute twine.

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.

Valentine Cookie Cutter Sign

You will need:

*Surface of your choice

*Valentine cookie cutters-Walmart

*Paint

*Glitter-optional

*Jute twine or rope

*Embellishments of choice

For this project I used a piece of scrap wood that I had laying around, but you could use any surface you choose. I found these Valentines cookie cutters at Walmart. The first thing I did was to get my paint on my paper plate.

Next, simply dip your cookie cutters in your desired paint color and transfer to your surface. You may have to re-dip the cookie cutters a few times to get bolder lines.

Once I was done with the cookie cutters, I then used different embellishments I had on hand to dress it up a bit. I also sprinkled some red glitter over my paint while it was still wet. I found these burlap hearts at Hobby Lobby and then just added a cute little button to the middle of the hearts. For the arrow, I used a metal key embellishment that you can find HERE on Amazon.

To finish off the project, I took a piece of burlap and a piece of ribbon to make a cute little bow. I used a piece of twine to bunch the ribbon together in the middle and then finished off by adding a button to the center.

DIY Valentine’s Heart Decor

You will need:

*Heart hanger-Hobby Lobby

*”Love” wood cut-out-Hobby Lobby

*Pink burlap-Dollar Tree

*Apple Barrel acrylic paint in “Snow White”-Walmart

*Deco Art acrylic paint in “Green Lagoon”-Hobby Lobby

*Ribbon for bow-optional

*Hot glue gun-CLICK HERE for my affiliate link for the glue gun I use.

The first thing I did was paint my “Love” with my “Snow White” paint and my little wood heart with my “Green Lagoon” paint. I found a pack of these little wood hearts at the Dollar Tree.

Next, I cut a piece of pink burlap and glued that to the center of the heart. I found this burlap at the Dollar Tree in the craft section.

Once I had the burlap on, I then glued the “Love” to the burlap and then added my painted heart to the bottom of that.

To finish it off I made a simple crisscross bow using various ribbons from Hobby Lobby.

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.
