Four Farmhouse Projects

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! This time of year is always a busy one for teachers, so I never seem to post as many blog posts as I’d like. Today, I’d like to share some super cute farmhouse projects with you all.

  1. Classic farmhouse wooden sign

You can make this one with just a stencil, some scrap wood, some paint and some wood stain. You can even freehand it if you’re more artistically talented than I am. There are so many things I want to put on a sign like this one! I can’t wait to make a few more.

 

2.  Wooden Farmhouse planter box

I made this box from some mis-measured wood pieces from another project, and some walnut wood stain. I have used this box for Christmas, for spring, for fall, and for winter. It’s so much fun to decorate with!

3. Farmhouse chunky wood candlesticks

These super cute, very farmhouse candlesticks are made from wood-turned chair legs, terra-cota flower pot saucers, and chalk paint. I ended up with three really nice candlesticks for around $20.

4. DIY Rustic wood coat rack

This rustic wood coat rack is made from a plank of scrap wood, some walnut stain, and some Hobby Lobby drawer pulls. It adds a unique touch to our room and was super easy to make too!

 

Well, what are you waiting for? Grab some scrap wood and some walnut stain and get to creating! I can’t wait to see what you make.

One of my absolute favorite holidays is approaching and I’m looking forward to it. As a Christian, I absolutely love Easter. I also really love springtime. Easter is important because it celebrates the death and resurrection of my Risen Savior Jesus Christ, but it also represents a time of renewal and rebirth.

I love crafting and creating pretty things, but even more so, I love sharing those things with others. I haven’t had much time to create anything lately, so I decided to share some of my current favorite Pin-spirations.

  1. Easy pom-tailed bunny garland

How easy would this be? You’d only need some pretty scrapbook paper, some twine, pom-poms, and a little glue. I think this is just adorable and I’d love to put it on my fireplace!

2.  Farmhouse Twine Carrots

These cute little carrots are so simple and easy to make! I think they’d be cute just about any way you’d decide to display them.

3. Old Rugged Cross Wreath

This old rugged cross wreath is so simple and beautiful…and best of all, it represents the true meaning of Easter. I’d hang this above my mantle or maybe on a mirror like this blogger did.  I cannot wait to make this.

4. No Sew Sock Bunny

These super cute little bunnies will be adorable on top of my mantle! I cant wait to make them with my girls!

I hope you have enjoyed this round up today! Happy Crafting!

How to DIY Christmas ornaments from pinecones!

How to DIY Christmas ornaments from pinecones! Sometimes you just need a cute, easy craft that doesn’t cost you a dime. That’s exactly what I needed this week, and it turned out super cute. I picked up these pinecones from our neighbor’s yard but I already had the glue gun, ribbon and twine in my craft cabinet. I cut the ribbon at the length I wanted and tied them into simple little bows. I then tied the twine around the knot on the bows and hot glued the bow knots to the base of the pine cones. I told you this was easy!! And I made six of them in different sizes. And then I hung them on our tree. Next year, I may create a woodland tree with these pine cones and wood slice ornaments. Arent they pretty? What awesome and free crafts have you done lately?

Dollar Store Crafts: Place Mat Pillows

I have wanted some pretty seasonal pillows, but I don’t always love the price. I was at Dollar Tree when I spotted these pretty placemats.

They were thin, as far as placemats go, but they were really pretty. Since they were at the Dollar Tree, I went ahead and bought four of them, with the intent of making two pillows from them.

I then took them home and pinned them together where I wanted to sew them. I then turned them inside out and sewed the edges together.

And after I sewed the edges, I simply turned them right-side out and stuffed them with quilt batting.

I then sewed the open end together.

I absolutely love how these turned out! I am now looking for some napkins or tea towels that coordinate with these placemats so I can make some pillows from them!

What Dollar Store Upcycle have you completed lately?

Make it Monday: Paint stick burlap star

Make it Monday: Paint stick burlap star

You may recall when I made the folk art-inspired flag from paint sticks this summer. My folk art flag was beginning to fall apart and it had passed its phase of being useful…so I decided to repurpose it.

I started by taking the flag apart. See the paint? I didn’t bother taking the paint off since the sticks would be covered with burlap.

I laid it out in a star pattern and hot glued it together.

Then I began wrapping the star in wide burlap ribbon, taking the time to glue it at each pass. It took a long time and lots of ribbon, but when I finished, I had this:

I’m planning to hang it up and hang a wreath in the center of it. Isn’t it cute?
