DIY Spring Printable Sign

For this project you will need:

~Surface of choice

~Antique white paint

~Mod Podge

~Spring printable-You can purchase the one I used HERE from my Etsy shop.

~Jute rope

~Buttons

The sign I am using for this project is one I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby. I always take a stroll down the clearance isle just in case I can find little signs like this to use for my crafts. I used a sanding block to sand off the a majority of the black letters.

I then painted the inside of the frame with my antique white paint to cover up the remaining black so it wouldn’t show through once I mod podged my printable down.

Next, I cut down my printable to fit inside the frame and used mod podge to adhere it to my surface.

I then took some jute rope and glued it around the inside of my frame to give it a more finished look.

Last but not least, I added brown buttons topped with smaller pink buttons in all four corners of my sign.

Easter Tree Reveal

I am so excited to show you my first ever Easter tree! I finally had the space to leave my artificial Christmas tree up year round and decorate it for the different seasons/holidays! This is seriously so fun to do and keeps the house feeling cozy year round.

The first thing I did was take two rolls of burlap ribbon and draped this from top to bottom using the branches to secure every 8-10 inches. The burlap came from Hobby Lobby although you can find it many places. Deco mesh also works very well for this step.

Next, I used two strands of egg garland that I also found at Hobby Lobby and did the same with this as I did the burlap. One of the benefits of an artificial tree is being able to use the flexible branches to help secure your decorations.

Now, it’s time to fill in the rest of the tree with signs, picks, and ornaments! I had this “Easter” sitter available in my shop and decided it would look perfect on my tree! Really anything goes when it comes to decorating trees. That’s what’s so fun about it! No right or wrong way to do it!

The little glass egg ornaments are so stinkin’ cute so as soon as they came in to the shop I knew exactly what I would be using them for! Also, this egg berry pick was another piece from shop. If you don’t already, be sure to follow us over on Facebook at Lraedesign so you don’t miss out on all of these goodies during our live sales!

How cute is the Rae Dunn bunny garland?

The only items not from my store were these picks and the egg garland that I found at Hobby Lobby. The perfect Spring colors to finish off the top of my tree. So fun! If your having a hard time coming up with ideas, take a walk through your local craft store and I bet you will find some inspiration!

The tree skirt I used was from Amazon and you can find that at my affiliate link HERE!

I hope your inspired too try your own Easter tree now!

Dollar Tree Velvet Pumpkin Makeover

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?!

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 Succulent Decor

Supplies:

*Square terracotta pot

*White paint-any kind will work

*Bristle paint brush

*Faux succulents

*Sanding block

*Floral Foam

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!
