Decoupage Owl

Hello!

I haven’t decoupaged something in a long time… So when I was working on this little protect I was worried it wouldn’t turn out as cute as it did!  I found the owl cut out at Walmart.  I traced the owl onto scrap book paper.  I covered the wooden owl in Mod Podge glue and then covered the paper owl in Mod Podge.  After placing the paper on top of the wood, I used a brush to smooth out the paper.  Once the paper started to dry, I applied a coat of Mod Podge to seal the paper.  I added a little bow for a finishing touch!

Sweet Succulents 

Hello!  I’ve been super quiet on the blog lately and I apologize!  I have been working on some fun things and I’m excited to share them with you over the next few weeks!

Today I wanted to share the sweet little succulents I gave as part of a Mother’s Day gift.  I saw these adorable bowls on clearance at TJ Maxx and I couldn’t pass them up!  Later that day I was in Walmart getting a few household items.  As I passed through the lawn and garden section, these little beauties caught my eye.  I’m very pleased with how this turned out!

Now to make one for my house too!  Until next time…

Spring Wreath

Hello!  Each season I’ve been trying to update the wreathe on my front door.  Wreaths aren’t exactly hard (at least not the ones that I’ve been trying!), but I’ve found getting the picks in the right place can be frustrating.  I’m pretty pleased with how my spring wreath turned out!  I’m in love with tulips this season!  Happy Spring!!!

Arrow Paintings

Hello! I’ve been working on fun tribal decor for my niece!  Michael’s had a great sale on canvas and I stocked up!  This is the first creation.  I tried using a stencil and I didn’t love the stencil.  Next time I think it might try a different technique!  They still turned out cute! Hope y’all enjoy!

Beachy Decor

Hello!  As many of you know, my living room has a relaxing beachy theme.  Today I’m featuring photos from my old townhouse to show a little insight to my crafting decor inspirations. These photos aren’t “picture perfect” and I probably should have tidied up beforehand, but I still wanted to share!

Homemade Snow Globe

These snow globes are super easy and lots of fun to make. 
What you’ll need:
-glass jar 
-glitter
-water
-figurine 
-water resistant glue
-glycerin 

We used spray paint to  cover the lid, depending on what kind of jar you’re using will determine if you need to paint the lid!  To start, attach the figurine to the inside lid of the glass jar. Add water, a few drops of glycerin, and glitter. Make sure the glue is water resistant and also be sure to fill the jar as much as possible with water to prevent the glitter from separating on the top and bottom of the jar. 

I also used water resistant glue to seal the lid to the jar. Really easy and lots of fun! Hope y’all enjoyed!!!

Dandelion Dreams

Day two from my crafting adventures with my guest crafter!!! As I stated before, I choose these crafts to be quick and easy for kids!  I found this idea on Pinterest!  I chose this craft because I like the hands on finger painting, what kid doesn’t like getting their hands a little dirty?

What you’ll need:
-Paint
-Dandelion Template
-Hand Soap
-Water

I poured a few different colors of enamel paint into a paint palette.  Once I printed the dandelion template, we just dipped our fingers into the paint and applied to the template!  I chose to take a more simplistic concept, where as my guest crafter decided to take her creativity to the next level!   

Be sure to have hand soap and warm water ready to go to get those paint covered fingers clean!  Hope y’all enjoyed! Happy crafting!

Breakfast Tray

I have wanted a breakfast tray for a while, but they seemed a little expensive… even for the plain, not-so-durable ones from Target or Walmart.  After checking out sites like Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn, I realized I would have to make my own in order for a breakfast tray to fit in my budget!  At Target and Walmart they run from $10-$20.  The other stores started around $50 and went up to $89.

I found a very plain wooden tray at AC Moore craft store.  At first I was planning to paint the tray a solid color, but then I got to thinking… I could use a piece of scrapbook paper and Mod Podge to really decorate it!  I choose a piece of scrapbook paper and coordinating paint, then went to work!  I painted the entire tray and allowed it to dry over night.  In the morning, I applied Mod Podge glue to the back of the scrapbook paper and a little to the tray itself, then secured the paper.  After ensuring all bubbles were removed and the surface was smooth, I applied Mod Podge to the entire surface of the tray.  The Mod Podge is a glue that also works as a sealer.  I added little ribbons to the handles for detail.

I’m very pleased with how this project turned out!  I plan on making a few more!  The cost of this project… Tray- $5.99 (I had a 50% off coupon for one item so the tray was about $3) Paint- 44cents and Scrapbook paper was 50cents… I used Mod Podge left over from a previous project, but it runs about $7 in craft stores.  My total was about $5… and that definitely fit the budget!
