*Raffian/ribbon for bow-mine are both from Hobby Lobby
If you have never made a reverse canvas before, your going to love them! The first step to any reverse canvas project is to remove the canvas from the frame. I like to use a utility knife for this. Simply cut on the outside of the staples and remove the canvas. We will trim it up later!
Next, I took my moss colored paint and painted the round frame.
While that dried, I then cut the excess canvas off so I had a perfect circle,
I then mod podged my scrapbook paper onto the canvas circle that I had just cut out and then cut off the excess scrapbook paper.
Now it’s time to reassemble our canvas.
Flip over the painted frame and put hot glue all around the back of the frame and then stick your canvas/scrapbook paper circle face down on top of this.
Tada! How cute is this already?!
Now, to finish off this cute little pumpkin, I added a stick for the stem and of course a bow!
Take your desired ribbon and crisscross your pieces. I found this Fall colored raffia at Hobby Lobby so I added some of that on top as well. I then took another piece of raffia and laid it across the middle of my bow, flipped it over and tied it in the back to complete my bow.
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!
When I seen these cute little pumpkin cut-outs at Michaels the other day, I knew I had to have a few of them. It didn’t take me long to figure out what I was gonna do with this one.
The first I did was take my pumpkin and trace one side on the fabric and one side on the scrapbook paper. I then cut them out and used mod podge to adhere them to each side of the pumpkin. Don’t panic if you have some excess fabric/paper hanging over the edge. Take your sanding block around the edges and it will take care of the excess for you.
Now to finish off the stem, I simply took some jute twine and wrapped the stem.
Also when I was at Michaels I found this super cute Halloween pick and knew I had to have it too! I cut a few pieces off and glued them on right at the bottom of the stem.
I did the same thing on the other side. I used a few pieces of some floral picks I had laying around and tada!
Once your ready to change up your decor for Halloween all you have to do is flip it around! Doesn’t get much easier than that now does it?
*Surface of choice-I picked this sign up from the Dollar Tree
*Decor Art “Green Lagoon” paint
*Apple Barrel “Snow White” paint
*Wooden hearts-Dollar Tree
*Scrapbook paper-Hobby Lobby
First, I turned my sign over and painted the back with my green lagoon paint. Once that had dried I took my white paint and dry brushed over my base color to get my desired look.
Next, I traced my hearts on to my scrap book paper, cut them out and used mod podge to adhere the paper to the hearts.
Now, its time to put the project together. I found this buffalo check ribbon at Hobby Lobby and thought it would be cute to use for the “X”. Then obviously I used the hearts for the “O”. Looking cute already but of course we have to add a bow and why not a little jute twine. For the bow I just used a few different patterns/textures of ribbon and simply crisscrossed them to make my bow.
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.
*Apple Barrel Paint-I mixed Kelley Green and White
For those of you who love to decorate your porch for the holidays…you can never have too much porch decor can you? I absolutely LOVE how this porch sign turned out!
The board I used for this project came from Menards. It was a 10 ft. board that we cut in half to get two 5ft. boards. Once my board was cut to my desired length I then painted it. I mixed “Kelley Green” and “White” Apple Barrel paint together to get a sage green color.
While my board was drying I began tracing my letters and using mod podge to adhere my scrapbook paper and wrapping paper to my letters. The scrapbook paper I used came from Hobby Lobby and the teal plaid is Pioneer Woman wrapping paper that I got at Wal-mart. Both worked great for this project.
Once I had my paper mod podged on the letters I also went over the top of the paper again to seal the letters.
Once my board and letters were dry I used E6000 to adhere the letters to my board. If you plan to use this sign inside you could also use hot glue for this step. You will want to be sure and let your E6000 set up for the recommended time to ensure your letters stay put.
I used my staple gun to wrap some jute twine around the top and bottom of my sign and added a cute home made bow to the top and voila! Stinkin’ cute, right? So excited to add this to my porch! If you wanted to spruce it up even more it would be super cute to add some lights around it.
If you plan to put your sign outside you will want to spray it with a clear coat to seal it from the weather!
