Whip up a set of Jack-O-Lantern Planters from tin cans this fall. Fill them with seasonal flowers for a fun pop of color on your front porchI love Halloween, mums and vintage stuff. I put them all together with this project to make a trio of Jack-O-Lantern Planters with vintage inspired pumpkin faces. I received the paint for free as part of the DecoArt Blogger Outreach Program. If you follow me on Instagram this is the paint Mary dumped on the floor while I was canning tomatoes. [Read more…]

Floral Monogram

The only thing we managed to finish in Mary’s nursery before she was born was painting the walls and her dresser. Now that she’s 2 and the next one is half baked I figured it was time I stepped it up and put together some art for her room. I came up with this idea about a year ago when I found a fancy pack of ladybug brads but they disappeared into the black hole of my sisters car. A recent trip to Michael’s revealed that they have all of their scrap booking brads on clearance (no lady bugs though) so it seemed time to finally put together the floral monogram I had planned for her room.

Hand Painted Holiday Magnets

Jazz up your fridge with hand painted Holiday Magnets made from wooden craft store ornaments

My fridge was looking a little neglected this season, we collect magnets from all the places we visit but none of them really say ‘Christmas’. Besides it was time to clear out the clutter of expired coupons and calender magnets from 3 years ago anyway. On my craft store travels I picked up three three packs of wooden ornaments from Michael’s to make these holiday magnets. My favorite is the little reindeer with his gold antlers.

Use an vinyl stencil and looking glass spray paint to craft a winter deer mirror perfect to reflect the twinkling holiday lights
I’ve had this idea rolling around in my head to make photo mats with Krylon Looking Glass spray paint since last winter, I even bought the spray paint I just never quite figured out what I wanted to do. When I was looking around the Silhouette Design Store and I found this stunning deer and snowflake silhouette. The stubborn wheels in my head started turning and I came up with this idea!

Metallic Holiday Silhouettes

Have you been hitting the sales? Mike, Mary and I ended up some black Friday shopping, we had to go buy wood shaving and stopped at Herb Phillipson’s for winter gloves on the way home. Mike says he’ll go with me to Michael’s tomorrow to buy picture frames for Christmas gifts but I might end up going it alone. If you happen to be out shopping the craft sales pick up a 4 pack of 6×6 canvases for this fun winter holiday silhouettes project.
