Our DIY this month is a simple spring decoration. It’s great if you have some mismatched or lightly chipped china cups that you don’t know what to do with. Just take a little spanish moss, some baby’s breath, little eggs, and/or small silk flowers and make a cute little spring nest in the teacup. Glue it in place and then tie a ribbon on the handle to hang it with.

Happy Spring!

Our DIY this month is an easy way to make a gold arrow to decorate with. First, spray paint a thin wooden dowell or skewer gold. Next, punch or cut a heart out of gold glitter paper. We used a 2″ heart punch. Use a ruler to draw a simple feather end.We did a rectangle shape with a triangle cut out of the bottom and added to the top. If you are making more than one, remember to use this as a pattern before gluing it on. Then just glue the arrow tip (upside down heart) to one end and arrow end onto the other end of your gold dowell. We used fabric glue, our go-to glue when you need something extra sticky that dries fast. A simple arrow that works great as a decoration on its own or in a wreath or arrangement.

Have a great day!!!

Our DIY this month is full of vintage sweetness. Mom made these adorable Valentine gifts and I thought I would share how. She used vintage milk bottles, but you could easily use mason jars or any other cute glass containers. She glued a red wood bead to the top of small wooden dowells or skewers. For the banner, she cut a triangle out of an old book page and then a smaller one out of a vintage bingo card. Then she cut one out of thin cardboard the same size as the book page and glued the book page onto it. She used a zig zag stitch on the sewing machine to sew them together with red thread. Next, she punched holes in the wide end of the banner and tied it to the dowell. Then she glued a vintage Valentine onto the banner and embellished it with other cut outs. Finally, she filled it with yummy chocolates. Such a sweet Valentine 🙂

Wishing you a wonderful 2017!

img_2645Our DIY this month is similar to the book page apple, except no cutting required! Find a paperback book that you no longer need and rip off the cover. You’ll need about 120-145 pages to have a full Christmas tree. So separate the book at the number of pages you want and if there are enough pages you can make two or more trees out of one book. Start with your first page and fold the top corner down so that it’s even with the binding.img_2646

Then fold the bottom corner up to meet that fold.

img_2650

Fold the whole page back one more time so that the top edge is even with the binding.img_2653

img_2636

Continue folding each page until they are all folded. Glue the first and last pages together. Then embellish them however you wish. We added paper toppers to some and tiny red bulbs to the the tops of the others. We also added white glitter to the whiter trees by brushing glue on the edges of the trees and sprinkling glitter all over them.november

Our DIY this month is a book page apple. It works best if you have a fairly thick paperback book. Go ahead and rip the cover off of the book. Then draw a half apple shape on one side and begin cutting through as many pages at a time as you can. We usually use an exacto knife for this, but this time I just used heavy duty scissors and lifted about 15 pages up at a time to cut through.

img_2296

Try to keep your cuts as lined up as possible. When your done cutting through the whole book, ink the edges with red ink.

img_2300

Then glue a small stick in the middle of the binding of the book.

img_2304

I just used hot glue to glue the stick on. On some of them, I cut out leaves from burlap and glued those in the middle too. Then, I used PVA glue to glue the pages from each side together. Keep bending the binding back and forth to get the pages to spread out and I actually used clothes pins on mine for a while to hold the pages closed where they tended to want to open up.

Happy September, hope you have a great rest of the month!

Our DIY this month is similar to our chalk wine bottle tutorial here. But these would be so stinking cute for back to school gifts and/or storage! Just find or buy a Mason jar. Spray paint with primer. Let that dry, and then paint over it with chalkboard paint. Our favorite chalkboard paint is Benjamin Moore, available at Hometown Lumber. Wait a few days, and then condition it by rubbing chalk all over it. Wipe that off and then draw on it and/or go over the raised areas with chalk again. Then fill it will school supplies (or flowers, because I like to put flowers in/on everything :)).IMG_2277

Happy August!
