Picture Frame Americana Decor

You will need:

*picture fame-mine came from Hobby Lobby

*scrapbook paper-Hobby Lobby

*USA truck hanger-Hobby Lobby

*burlap

*ribbon if bow is desired

The first step is to open the frame up and replace the insert with your scrapbook paper. Any patriotic pattern of paper will work.

Next, I glued a piece of burlap in the center of the frame on top of the glass.

I then added the truck to the top of the burlap.

Now you can either leave it as is and use it as a shelf sitter, or you can add a bow and a piece of twine to make a hanging sign.

So stinkin’ cute, am I right? I think this took me a total of 5 minutes to make! Will you be making one for yourself?

Home Sweet Home Hanging Sign

You will need:

*Surface of choice-mine is from Hobby Lobby

*Home sweet home cut-out-Hobby Lobby

*Scrapbook paper

*Mod podge

*Jute rope

*Ribbon/raffia if bow is desired

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!

Hobby Lobby Truck Makeover

You will need:

*Unfinished wood truck from Hobby Lobby

*Paint of your choice

*Sanding block

*Glitter

*POSCA pen(optional)-Here is my affiliate link to find these on Amazon.

The first thing I did was paint my truck with my English Navy color and the tires with Jet Black. All of the colors I used on this project were the Apple Barrel brand.

Next I used Christmas Green for the trees and then used some of the Antique White to highlight the trees a bit.

While the paint was still wet I sprinkled on some green glitter.

I then used my POSCA pen to highlight my truck. If you do not have one of these you can just use a small paint brush and your white paint to get the same effect. Once dried I then took my sanding block to it to add a rustic touch to the truck.

Lastly, I glued one of the these rustic snowflakes on the door and went back with my POSCA pen add added a little more highlighting to the truck. You can find these snowflakes at Hobby Lobby.

I forgot to mention the truck lights up! How stinkin’ cute, right?

2021 Fall Hobby Lobby Finds

I love when Hobby Lobby puts out their new seasonal decor! It’s like therapy for me to just walk through isle by isle and try and come up with my color scheme for each season as I decorate my home. I know everyone doesn’t have access to a Hobby Lobby in their town so I like to share a blog post so you can get a sneak peek too!

How cute is this color scheme? I love the pops of light pink!

I am absolutely loving this theme! Instead of changing out all of my old decor, I am thinking I will just add in pops of the navy and purple. So many choices!

As always, they have the cutest selection of ribbon!

So what do you think? Are you ready to go shopping and start decorating for Fall? I know I sure am! Which color scheme is your favorite?

DIY Farmhouse Riser

Supplies:

*1 3/4 Inch Ball Knobs(Hobby Lobby)

*12 Inch Round Panel(I got mine from Menards)

*White Paint

*Paint Brush

*Sand Paper or Sanding Block

*Hot Glue Gun-affiliate link for cordless glue gun I use in my live videos.

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!
