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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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?
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?
