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!
The first thing I did was add a little white washing to my pallet board. I wanted it to be a little bit brighter so I simply dry brushed it with some white acrylic paint.
Next, I took my Lamb’s Ear wreath that I found at Hobby Lobby and glued that on to my board. I found this mini wreath in the wedding section at Hobby Lobby and it was the perfect fit for this project.
I then took a strip of burlap and glued that down to my board and then glued my “home” onto the burlap to help it stand out against my board.
Now, if you wanted to leave it just like this then you are finished. But…you know me and that I almost always have to add a bow to finish off my projects. So, I added a bow to the top of my hanger to dress it up a bit more. I found this polka-dot burlap ribbon at Hobby Lobby also.
Now do you believe me when I say you can make your own farmhouse decor without having to spend a ton of money? I am in love with this and hope it will inspire you to get creative and make some of your own home decor too!
This project is seriously so easy I can’t believe I am just now doing it! There are only three steps to this cute little project and anyone can do this.
The first step is to paint your round board and your wooden ball knobs with any paint you prefer. I used a white acrylic paint from Hobby Lobby but seriously any paint will work for this.
Next once everything was dry I took a sanding block and distressed my piece of wood. The amount of distressing will depend on your taste. I like to make mine noticeably distressed as I prefer the more aged farmhouse look.
The last step is to simply glue on your feet(knobs) to the bottom of your riser. I used 4 knobs for mine and it works perfectly. You could also use E6000 to adhere your feet to your riser but I didn’t have any on hand so just used hot glue instead and that worked just fine.
I am so excited to decorate my new riser for the different holidays! What do you all think? Super cute, affordable, and soo easy to do! Just the way I like it!
This project is seriously so easy! Now, I used scrap wood on my ladder just because I have a ton of it laying around! If you do not have scrap wood you can just use regular 2×4 boards. My pieces of wood were already cut to these lengths so instead of complicating it I just kept them the lengths they were. So obviously if you would like your ladder to be taller than 40 inches you would would just adjust your lengths accordingly! For the steps of the ladder my pieces were 13 inches wide but like I said just do whatever works for you depending on the size of the ladder you want!
Once you have all of your pieces the lengths you want them simply lay out your pieces and screw it together! I left 10 inch gaps between the steps on my ladder.
Once I had my boards screwed together I went over it with my sander. This step may be optional depending on the boards you use. Since I used scrap wood my boards definitely needed some sanding!
Now it’s time to add your paint or stain. I went back and forth on what I wanted to do with mine but decided to use white chalk paint since that’s what I had on hand.
Once my paint dried I went back over it all with my sanding block to add some distressing. If you don’t have a sanding block you could also use a piece of sand paper or an orbital sander. You will want to use a coarser grit on this.
I just love decorating with these ladders! They are so versatile and you can dress it up differently for each season!
Who else is loving decorating with wood bead garland? Well, your in luck! This blog post will show you how to make your own wood bead garland in no time. You can certainly tweak this to make it your own but I thought why not throw in some pops of color!
Here are the supplies you will need:
*5/8″ ribbon of your choice(optional) I got mine at Dollar Tree
I did a live video of me making wood bead garland and have included that below. These can be so versatile. I used red and blue ribbon in the garland I made in the video but you can easily switch out your colors of ribbon/tassels to make it more neutral or to make it for another season/holiday.
Here is another wood bead garland I made the same way but simply changed out the color of ribbon I used to make it more Springy!
Are you in need of some new home décor to spruce up a space in your home? This project can do just that. I love that this has a neutral color pallet so you can leave it up as long as you would like. This took me roughly 10 minutes to make. So quick and easy!
Here is the list of supplies that I used for this project!
*Wooden tray from Hobby Lobby- $17.99 with 40% off coupon
*Galvanized “H” from Hobby Lobby- $2.99
*Wood slice from Hobby Lobby- $2.99
*2 Floral sprigs from Hobby Lobby- $1.47 each
