Valentines Day Plaque [tutorial]
Valentines Day Plaque
What you will need:
- V-day Paper
Take the paper you want a press down on the wet wood (the backside of the paper) so you get a paint stain on the backside. This makes it easier for you to cut the paper out.
Put the adhesive on the wood and place the Valentines Day paper on top. Press firmly with your hand to make sure the paper stays!
Print out your “words” I chose I LOVE YOU
I just want to leave you with a beautiful sunset in the East!
Valentines Day Wooden Hearts <3 [Tutorial]
I <3 Valentines Day! A lot of people feel that it is a “Hallmark” Holiday..but I have always loved it! So I decided to get started on some of my Valentines day ideas! Here is how to make these way cute wooden blocks!
What you will need:
- 4 Wooden heart blocks
- Dark pink paint
- Valentines day paper (4 sheets)
- Vinyl Lettering ( I used my silhouette machine)
Cut hearts out of paper.
TIP: While your wooden blocks are still wet with paint press one of them down on the back of the paper you will be using. Not only will it give you an outline of what you will need but it makes it MUCH easier when using such an odd shape.
These are the four hearts that I cut out…
Once the paint is dry put a layer of this adhesive on the blocks and place paper over it..
Place vinyl on hearts.

Have a fabulous Valentines Day!

Friday, October 8, 2010Living Life Crafty !! Thought it was way cute so I wanted to make my own and put my own spin on it a little! Instead of making a “Thanksgiving” wreath I decided to make a Fall-ish looking wreath (colors, hardy looking wreath etc)! I am going to make a Thanksgiving one too but this might be my “September” wreath for next year! It was super easy to do and fun! Let me know what you think!! What you will need:
- Monogram Letter
Sunday, September 26, 2010Step one: Cover the foam wreath frame with the black boa. Keep a spot up top to tie a ribbon! Step two: Tie the ribbon of your choice on the wreath. I used two different ribbons: orange and black polka dots Step three: Paint the wooden sign..I painted it black. Step four: Paint the skull…I painted it white. Step five: Glue skull head on the wreath. Step six: Paint the wooden letters, glue them on the wooden frame then glue the frame on the wreath. FINISHED! HAPPY HALLOWEEN
Monday, September 20, 2010Turn the canvas horizontally before you lay your letters down. I then mod podged the whole board to keep the letters from coming up. Finished product: I added a few extra things as well: This is the “stain” organizer…whatever the stain is this will tell you how to get it out and what to use! I framed it and hung it on the wall under my “LAUNDRY DRUP YOUR DRAWS HERE” sign! I usually have two baskets on the wall but one is filed with laundry! That will get folded eventually! =) I got this table from Target. I tend to fold laundry on it or sometimes I even iron on it! My new “laundry" sign! My laundry corner: I want to add a couple more shelves and such! But for now I think it is pretty cute!
Saturday, September 18, 2010I used Burnt Orange and Yellow Ochre paint from Americana and mixed them together… I painted the board with two coats: I then used the cricut machine and printed out “GIVE THANKS” in black and the leaf and acorn in brown. I then used two layers of Modge Podge! My husband attached a hook on the back for me so I could either hang it up or lay it against a flat wall! What are you thankful for? Enjoy! xo
Monday, September 13, 2010Mine for the Making gave me this awesome idea! Check out her page she has some amazing and creative ideas!! I just LOVE the fall so I first wanted to share some of my fall decorations with you! I haven't started outside yet but it is coming along slowly but surely! OK so on to the project (again you can check this awesome project out at Mine for the Making’s blog as well!) I did it a little differently then hers but the idea was 100% hers! I loved it so much that I wanted to make a set for my small bathroom as a decoration for this fabulous season! “Boo Blocks” I got these three blocks from Michaels $.99 each! I painted them all black. I did two coats on each block. I then chose Halloween 12” x 12” paper that I liked. Once I did that I cut the paper into little squares to match the top of each block. I used a hot glue gun, black paint, scissors, paint brush and a plate to put the paint in. I glued the paper on to the top of the blocks once the blocks were completely dry! I then used the cricut and cut out the letters “BOO” the font size was 1-1/2”. I placed one letter on each block. I then embellished with extras! I used googley eyes, ribbon, beads, spiders etc. I found all of these objects in the craft section or scrapbooking section at Michaels! After everything dried I was able to place it where I wanted and it looked great!!! Thanks again Kara @ Mine for the Making! I am linking up with Funky Junk Interiors. Enjoy!
Saturday, September 11, 2010Mine for the making) and I wanted to try to duplicate it! I didn’t make it exactly how she made it but I attempted it!!!! What I did first was had my husband cut the wood to what I wanted it to be. I then painted it white. I did 2 coats on the wood: I then took the brown paint and put it on one of the rags and smeared it all over the boards. I used the sandpaper to make it look more faded. I then used the cricut and cut out all the letters and placed them on the boards. I used three coats of Mod Podge to make sure the letters were securely on the boards. My husband needed to cut the wood a little bit more for me and then he hung it above our front door! Finished product: I think it came out pretty cute!! Materials/Cost: - wood = $4
