Diy Succulent Decor

Supplies:

*Square terracotta pot

*White paint-any kind will work

*Bristle paint brush

*Faux succulents

*Sanding block

*Floral Foam

I absolutely love succulent,s but sometimes it’s just easier to use faux succulents for decorating instead of the live ones. I found this cute little terracotta pot on clearance at Hobby Lobby for just a few dollars and instantly new what I was going to do with it.

The first thing I did was take a bristle brush and paint my pot white. Any kind of paint will work for this. I didn’t want my pot to be solid white so I just lightly brushed the paint on. Once my paint had dried, I took my sanding block and distressed it a bit.

Next, I took my floral foam and cut approximately 1/2 inch off so it would fit in my pot.

Once I had my foam in my pot I started sticking in my faux succulent picks. I found these ones at Hobby Lobby but you can find them at several other stores also. I like to start out by putting a taller pick in the middle and then add in the shorter ones to fill in the gaps.

So, what do you think? I think it turned out awesome! The even better part is that it only cost around $10. Creating your own home decor doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg! I hope this inspires you to have some fun and create one of your own!

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 d├ęcor 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?

XOXO,
