Hanging XOXO Heart Sign

You will need:

~Surface of choice-mine is from the Dollar Tree

~burlap hearts-Hobby Lobby

~xoxo tile letters

~bright magenta apple barrel paint

~Ribbon and raffia-optional

The first thing I did was paint my surface with my bright magenta. I used two coats on mine. As you can see, the design underneath is still showing through a bit. I’m not too worried about it! Once we get everything glued on and a bow on the top, no one will ever know!

Next, I glued my burlap hearts down alternating red and natural. I then glued my XOXO tiles onto the hearts. These letter tiles are some I had on hand from my shop. I do carry them from time to time but they are sold out at the moment. Any small letter will work for this.

Now, to finish off this cute sign, I simply made a criss-cross bow as shown below.

I then added a cute little raffia bow on top of my criss-cross bow and embellished with a couple little glitter hearts I had on hand. I believe they are from the Dollar Tree.

USA Reclaimed Wood Decor

For this project, you will need:

*piece of reclaimed wood/barnwood

*USA letters

*star embellishment-I found mine at Hobby Lobby

*Mountain Blue paint by Apple Barrel

*Jute twine

*Raffia & button

The first thing I did was paint my u-s-a letters with my mountain blue color.

Once those had dried, I hot glued them onto my piece of wood along with my star. If you plan to use this piece outside you will want to also use gorilla glue or E6000 to adhere your pieces to the wood to withstand the weather elements.

Next, I used my staple gun to attach my jute twine, wrapping it around several times and securing the end with another staple.

Looking cute already, right? I just felt like the top was missing something, so I decided to add a raffia bow. I was hoping I had red raffia but unfortunately did not so just used the natural raffia I had on hand. I then added a cute little red button to the center to complete my project.

I love how this turned out. This was one of those projects that I had no clue what I was going to do when I sat down and then within a matter of minutes I had created this awesome piece! I hope this inspires you to let your mind run wild and get those creative juices flowing!

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?
