I was a craft machine the other weekend while my boyfriend was out of town. Some of my projects were inspired by crafty bloggers like Tatertots and Jello and Blue Cricket Designs, while others had been on my craft “to do” list for quite some time [see hanging jewelry holder and letter hooks].
My whimsical wreath
DIY hanging jewelry holder
Step 1: Buy supplies (framed cork board – $2 from Salvation Army, white paint, teal ribbon, paint brush and pretty rhinestone stickies from Michael’s). Supplies I already had: screws, thumbtacks).
Step 2: Paint edge white, screw in hooks at the bottom.
Step 3: Add pretty teal rhinestone stickies.
Step 5: Hang it, add jewelry.
My pretty bird wall art
Step 1: Buy supplies (blue and brown paint, 2 pack of small canvases – approx. $6 – from Michael’s)
Step 2: Paint white canvases Robin’s Egg Blue.
Step 3: Draw branches freehand with pencil.
Step 4: Print and cut out silhouettes of birds that you find by searching Google.
Step 5: Trace birds onto canvas.
Step 6: Paint branches and birds brown.
My pretty tree branch painting
Step 1: Buy supplies (brown and blue paint from Michael’s, two large $5 canvases from Big Lots)
Step 2: Paint canvases brown. FYI I did about 3 coats.
Step 3: Pick an image online that you think would look fabulous. Print it out so you can eye it while you draw it freehand.
Step 3: Draw the image in pencil.
Step 4: Fill in the image with blue paint.
Your hook. My hook.
Step 1: Purchase these cute white letters from Michael’s (in the dollar bin!).
Step 2: Paint them the same blue color as the other projects.
Step 3: Since these already have hooks, hammer a nail in the wall and hang.
Besides the mess, our room looks better now.
What should my next craft project be!
