Valentine Cookie Cutter Sign

You will need:

*Surface of your choice

*Valentine cookie cutters-Walmart

*Paint

*Glitter-optional

*Jute twine or rope

*Embellishments of choice

For this project I used a piece of scrap wood that I had laying around, but you could use any surface you choose. I found these Valentines cookie cutters at Walmart. The first thing I did was to get my paint on my paper plate.

Next, simply dip your cookie cutters in your desired paint color and transfer to your surface. You may have to re-dip the cookie cutters a few times to get bolder lines.

Once I was done with the cookie cutters, I then used different embellishments I had on hand to dress it up a bit. I also sprinkled some red glitter over my paint while it was still wet. I found these burlap hearts at Hobby Lobby and then just added a cute little button to the middle of the hearts. For the arrow, I used a metal key embellishment that you can find HERE on Amazon.

To finish off the project, I took a piece of burlap and a piece of ribbon to make a cute little bow. I used a piece of twine to bunch the ribbon together in the middle and then finished off by adding a button to the center.

XOXO Valentine’s Sign

This sign is so stinkin’ cute and easy to make! And the even better part is that you more than likely have these items laying around your house!

You will need:

*Piece of scrapwood or surface of your choice.

*White paint

*Ribbon of choice

*Jute rope

The first thing I did was to whitewash my board. I used antique white Apple Barrel paint for this.

Next I cut 4 pieces of my ribbon to make the “x” and then 2 pieces of rope for the “o”.

I laid this out to get my spacing and then hot glued.

To finish off the sign, I glued a piece of rope twine to the back for a hanger.

So what do you think? Doesn’t get much easier than this, right? Cute décor doesn’t have to cost a fortune!

Mini Scrap Wood Scarecrow

You will need:

*Piece of scrap wood-I used a small piece of a 2×4

*Burlap

*Jute twine

*Paint-whichever colors you prefer

*Paintbrushes

*Glue Gun-Here’s my affiliate link for the cordless glue gun I use.

The first thing I did was wrap my burlap around the top half of my board for the hat. I did fold the bottom inch or so over to make a brim for the hat.

Once I had the hat glued on I took a piece of jute twine and tied a little bow on the top of the hat to bunch it together.

Now, it’s time for the paint! I like to use smaller paint brushes for this. I started with the eyes and worked my way down the face. I used a round spouncer for the rosy cheeks but if you don’t have one you can certainly just use a paint brush to make them.

Once I had my face painted on, I then made a little raffia bow to stick on the brim of the hat.

Scrap Wood Fire Crackers

Supplies:

*Scrap Wood

*Red, White, and Blue Paint

*Paint Brush

*Spouncer

*Sanding Block

*Jute Cord/Rope

The first thing I did was paint my two pieces of wood. I used “Ocean” Waverly chalk paint for my blue and “Bright Red” Apple Barrel paint for my red.

Once my paint had dried, I took my spouncer(round sponge brush) and added white polka dots to my blue fire cracker and white stripes to my red fire cracker. If you wanted, you could use painters tape to paint your stripes on also for a more perfected look.

Next, I hot glued two pieces of jute cord on the top for my fuses.

Once my polka dots and stripes were dry, I then took my sanding block and distressed them.

They are super cute just like this but I decided I wanted to add a cute, little bow to mine. I simply just took a few different patterns and thickness of ribbon and criss crossed them. I then take a skinny piece of ribbon or twine and tie it to the center of my bow to gather my ribbon together.

Aren’t these just adorable! The perfect addition to your patriotic decor!

DIY Scrap Wood Valentine’s Gnome

This cute little Valentine’s gnome was just to adorable not to share on the blog! I had so much fun making this and think you will too!

You can watch the live video of me making this HERE!

So, what do you think? Isn’t it adorable! I wasn’t a huge fan of gnomes at first but, I have to say they have definitely grown on me and I may be a little obsessed now! Haha!

Buffalo Check Scrap Wood Christmas Tree

Supplies:

*Scrap Wood

*Mod Podge

*Scrap Book Paper-Buffalo Check

*Waverly Chalk Paint-Agave

*Apple Barrel Paint-Bright White

*Wood Star-Wal-Mart

*Paint Brush

*Hot Glue Gun

I’m sure you all think my scrap wood pile is never ending! HaHa! I wish that was the case! I just happened to score big last time I was at my parents place so I am taking full advantage of it and figured why not make a Christmas tree since I just happened to have the perfect pieces to do so.

I started off by painting my pieces as shown in the picture. My longest piece is 11.5 inches, my second piece is 9 inches, third piece is 7.5 inches, and my top piece is 4 inches. Now, like I said this is just what I had laying around so don’t feel like you have to have these exact lengths to make this work! Remember it’s a “scrap wood” project so it does not have to be perfect!

Next I took my bottom board and my third board and traced them on my scrapbook paper. I then cut my paper pieces out and mod podged them on my pieces of wood.

I put one layer of mod lodge on my board and the layer on top of my scrapbook paper. The mod podge will dry clear so don’t worry about that.

Once all of your paint and your mod podge is dry you can take your sanding block and distress your wood if you desire. I of course distressed mine!

Next I hit glued all my pieces together and added my wood star at the top. I found these stars at Walmart in the craft section and knew I had to buy them! They come in a bag of 4 or 5.

It’s cute just like this but I thought it was still missing something…so I added a bow of course! I just used some buffalo check ribbon and burlap I had on hand and made a quick little bow to finish it off! Love how this turned out! I think I’m officially ready to decorate for Christmas! HaHa!
