The first step is to lay all four of the wood slats down and glue four popsicle sticks to the back to make your surface. If you choose, you can use a ready made surface to save you time.
Your surface should look like the one below once you have done the previous step.
Next, I used the color black currant to paint my surface. I used a chip brush for this as I didn’t want 100% coverage.
As that dried, I took my ribbon and stacked each design together and cut them in the shape of flower petals. I ended up not using the color on the bottom right. All three of the ribbons I used came from Hobby Lobby.
I then arranged my flower petals somewhat in the shape of a flower. For the center of the flower I used rope twine and simply wrapped it around in circles until all of the inside edges of my flower petals(ribbon) were covered.
Now we have a our cute little flower. I wanted to put something in the center to hide my hot glue from where I started my jute rope so I painted a half wood bead with the same black currant color and glued that in the center. You can find the half wood beads like I used right HERE using my affiliate link.
I just love how this turned out! The perfect piece of decor for Spring and even Summer if you please!
You may have remembered me saying recently that I had been to my local Dollar Tree for over a month. However, when I finally went, I was very surprised to see all of the changes and new items they had! Definitely an upgrade from what the had before as far as the decor and crafting supplies go. This is a super fun and easy Easter wreath using almost all Dollar Tree items!
You will need:
*Wire egg form-Dollar Tree
*Chunky white yarn-Hobby Lobby
*Decorative Easter eggs-Dollar Tree
*Decorative picks-Dollar Tree
The first thing I did was take my chunky yarn and wrap it around my egg form. I simply hot glued my starting point to the egg form and continued wrapping the yarn around securing with hot glue as needed. As you can see, I used white yarn but any Spring color would be cute!
Once I had my wreath completely wrapped with yarn I pulled all of the eggs off of my picks and glued them around the egg leaving an opening at the bottom for my bow.
Next, I took the berry looking picks and cut pieces of each color off of the stem to use as fillers between the eggs I just glued on.
This is how it looks once everything is glued on. Of course you could always tweak it and make it your own by adding more to it but I deciding to leave mine like this!
Now for the bow. I found this super cute ribbon at Dollar Tree also. I simply took four pieces of this ribbon cut at roughly 5 inches wide and stacked them on top of each other. I used a skinny piece of ribbon and tied it tightly in the center of the ribbons. I then fanned my bow out, glued it on my wreath, and added another piece of the berry pick to the center to finish it off!
So, what do you think? Easy, cute and budget friendly! You can’t go wrong with this one!
The first thing I did was mod podge my scrapbook paper to my surface. As you can see my paper wasn’t quite wide enough to fit my surface. This is wear the jute rope comes in.
Next I painted my cut-out with the color Bohemian Blue from the DIY Paint Co.
After my paint was dry, I took my Posca paint pen and added some detailing. You can use any paint pen for this but here is the link for the ones I prefer. https://amzn.to/3je1kOI
Next, I glued my cut out out on to my surface and added two pieces of jute rope to each side to fill the gaps where the scrapbook paper didn’t cover.
To finish of the project I made a simple crisscross bow with ribbon and raffia. If you prefer to hang your sign like I did, simply glue a piece of twine to the back. This turned out cuter than I had imagined it would!
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.
