~Bottle brush tree-I got a pack of 3 at Dollar Tree
~ Faux snow pebbles
~Hot glue-CLICK HERE for the link to my glue gun I use daily.
The first thing I did was unscrew the lid off of the snow globe and remove the plastic insert. The only reason I did that was so that my tree would fit in the globe. If you wanted to make a traditional snowblobe with liquid inside, you would need to use that piece. For this particular diy, I decided not to use liquid. Next, I took one of my brush trees and glued it to the center of the lid. Dollar Tree has several different colors and sizes of these brush trees. I am loving the blush pink color this year so I went with the pink trees.
Next, I took my little foam snow pebbles and poured some in the globe. I would say a 1/4 cup or so. Then I screwed the lid back on the globe.
I had this pedestal on hand so went ahead and glued my globe onto it.
I wanted to cover up the lid of the globe so I took some velvet ribbon trim and wrapped that around the lid followed by another layer or ric rac.
To finish off my snow globe I added a white pom pom to the top and a wood slice to the bottom.
So, what do you think? Pretty stinking’ cute, right?
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
I ended up not using the larger eggs pictured above.
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!
I started off by mixing my two paint colors together. I used Anita’s “Pumpkin Orange”, and Apple Barrel “Tuscan Red” for my paint colors. Next, I painted my pumpkin, leaving the eyes, nose, and mouth unpainted as we will be covering them with scrapbook paper next.
Next I took my scrapbook paper and traced over the eyes, nose, and mouth and then cut the pieces out.
Once I had that done, I took my mod podge and adhered the scrapbook paper to my pumpkin. If you pieces of paper don’t fit the shapes on the pumpkin just right, don’t worry. You can always go back and use a sanding block to sand off the excess paper on the edges.
Next, I used a piece of jute twine to add a hanger to my pumpkin.
To finish off this cutie I simply made a cute little bow by criss-crossing a few different patterns of ribbon and adding some raffia to finish it off.
*Dish Towel-I found this buffalo check towel at Hobby Lobby.
I seriously cannot get over how stinkin’ cute this little pumpkin is. And the even better part is that it is super easy and cheap! Who doesn’t love a budget friendly craft, right?
If you have a Dollar Tree, run quick and snatch up some of their pumpkins before their gone! They have tons to choose from and they are only $1. If you do not have a Dollar Tree close you can always grab them at Wal-Mart or Hobby Lobby.
The first thing I did with my foam pumpkin is pull out the green stem and then used my knife to cut a circle in the top of my pumpkin. I would say roughly 1 inch.
Next I trimmed my dish towel down to 20in. X 20in. Obviously you can adjust this depending on the size of your pumpkin. Also if you can’t find a patterned dish towel that you like this works great with any fabric also.
After you have your fabric cut to the size you need it’s time to start wrapping your pumpkin. I used my cinnamon stick to help push my fabric into the hole. I started with the bottom left corner and worked my way around. Be sure you are pulling the fabric tight as you are pushing it in the hole.
Now you are ready to stick in your stem. I chose to use a cinnamon stick for mine, but it would also be cute with a piece of a twig.
Lastly, I took several strands of raffia and tied a cute little bow on the stem. I used a little natural colored and a little orange raffia on mine. You can find both of these colors at the Dollar Tree.
All the heart eyes, right? I can’t wait to make more of these!
