For this project I simply gathered a few ribbons that matched the color pallet I am using for Fall this year along with some raffia. Use whatever you have laying around and I can guarantee it will turn out just as cute!
The first thing I did was use painter’s tape to tape off my frame. I then used my “pink sky” waverly chalk paint and painted the inside of the frame. I did two coats.
Next, I layered my mustard colored ribbon on top of some burlap to create the “F”. Both of these ribbons came from Hobby Lobby.
For the “A”, I used this cute button ribbon trim that is also from Hobby Lobby.
For the first “L” I did the same thing that I did for the “F” layering a navy ribbon on top of the burlap. For the second “L” I used raffia. I love the look of this!
As if this isn’t already cute just the way it is…but you know me! Bow time!
I used this cute pick that I found at Hobby Lobby along with a cute lace bow that I tied up and added it to the top of the frame. To finish it off I added a little navy button. What do you think?
*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.
*Raffian/ribbon for bow-mine are both from Hobby Lobby
If you have never made a reverse canvas before, your going to love them! The first step to any reverse canvas project is to remove the canvas from the frame. I like to use a utility knife for this. Simply cut on the outside of the staples and remove the canvas. We will trim it up later!
Next, I took my moss colored paint and painted the round frame.
While that dried, I then cut the excess canvas off so I had a perfect circle,
I then mod podged my scrapbook paper onto the canvas circle that I had just cut out and then cut off the excess scrapbook paper.
Now it’s time to reassemble our canvas.
Flip over the painted frame and put hot glue all around the back of the frame and then stick your canvas/scrapbook paper circle face down on top of this.
Tada! How cute is this already?!
Now, to finish off this cute little pumpkin, I added a stick for the stem and of course a bow!
Take your desired ribbon and crisscross your pieces. I found this Fall colored raffia at Hobby Lobby so I added some of that on top as well. I then took another piece of raffia and laid it across the middle of my bow, flipped it over and tied it in the back to complete my bow.
You may have seen these wood block pumpkins at the Dollar Tree and thought well these are cute…am I right? Although they are cute just as they are, you know I had other plans. I also found this cute Fall door hanger at Walmart and thought the same thing, however, I bought this to use the cute F-A-L-L letters to make this project!
Supplies you will need:
*Wood block pumpkins from Dollar Tree-any wood block will work for this if you can’t get to a Dollar Tree
*F-A-L-L letters-I found mine from Wal-mart
*Scrapbook paper of choice-mine came from Hobby Lobby
The first thing I did was remove the raffia bows from the top of the pumpkins and cut my F-A-L-L letters apart. Be sure and save the raffia bows for later!
Next, I traced my pumpkins onto my scrapbook paper, cut them out and used mod podge to adhere them to the back of the pumpkin blocks. I used my sanding block to remove any excess paper from the edges.
Now it’s time to add the letters. I used E6000 spray glue my letters on. Like I have said before, this stuff is a game changer!
To finish the pumpkin blocks off I used the same raffia bows that came on them and re-glued them back on. How handy is that!? Now, of course if you didn’t care for the raffia bows you could certainly use something else on yours but I figured hey why not use what you can, right?
So, what do you think? Be sure and send me a picture if you make a set for yourself!
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:
*Walnut gel stain
*Blessed word cut-out, I got mine in a pack from Hobby Lobby
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!
