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!
You may have seen these cute little velvet pumpkins at your local Dollar Tree. I knew I had to grab some as soon as I seen them. They are cute just the way they are but my mind already had other plans to make them even cuter!
I did a little something different with each one. With the navy pumpkin I simply took some jute twine and wrapped the stem. I did use my floral cutters to cute the wonky edges off of the stem before I wrapped it.
Next, I took some raffia and tied a cute bow around the stem. I grabbed these cute little Fall leaves at Hobby Lobby so I added that to the raffia bow to finish it off.
For the pink pumpkin I started off by removing the stem.
Once I had the stem removed, I then took a cinnamon stick and stuck that in the center for the stem.
Next, I took some skinny buffalo check ribbon and tied a bow. I then did the same thing with some raffia and glued that on top of the buffalo check bow. To finish this one off I used a few of the same leaves from the pack I got at Hobby Lobby.
For the last pumpkin I started by again removing the stem.
I then tucked all of the material back in the center of the pumpkin. I took the same skinny buffalo check ribbon I used on the pink pumpkin and used that to decorate my pumpkin. I used three pieces of ribbon and simply wrapped it from the center of the pumpkin under around and stuck the end in the center to secure it down.
I used a stick for the stem on this one and kept it simple with a cute raffia bow.
So, what do you think? Can you believe these started off as $1 pumpkins from the Dollar Tree?!
The first thing I did was take my canvas off of the frame. You can do this by using a utility knife or staple remover.
Once I had the canvas removed, I stained the frame and my heart piece.
Next, I cut along the fold lines of the canvas so it would fit back on the frame and then glued my canvas back to the frame. I actually used the back side of the canvas(the oatmeal colored side) for my project as this side looks a little more rustic then just the plain white.
Next, I glued on my heart. The heart would also be cute with a white washed finish but for now I decided to just leave mine as is!
And of course to finish it off, I added a super quick and easy bow! It doesn’t get much easier than this, does it?
*Paint-I used Waverly chalk paint “Celery”, Apple Barrel “Tuscan Red”, “Black”, and “Pewter Gray”.
*Embellishments of your choice
Now, don’t get me wrong, this little truck is cute as it is but just wait until you see it after I get done with it!
To start off I removed the tree from the back of the truck. Next, I painted the body of the truck with my “tuscan red” paint.
Next, I painted my tires with my black paint and the fenders with my “celery” paint.
Once those were dry, I took my gray and added some highlight color to the tires. I also, took my “celery” color and added some highlights to the body of the truck.
Next, I added a little mini ornament embellishment on the door of the truck. I found these in the Christmas section at Wal-mart.
To finish off the truck, I used a Christmas pick to replace the tree that was in the back of the truck. I found my pick at Wal-mart. I simply cut down the stem and hot glued the top of the pick to the back of the truck.
Well, what do you think? Quite the transformation, right? I just love how it turned out!
