Creating a simple farmhouse metal house decoration.

 




Hi everyone! I hope that all is well. I've been having some fun creating a few simple crafts. Today I'm going to show you how to take one of the Dollar Tree metal house plaques, and turn it into a cute farmhouse decoration.  We're using just a few materials, my main materials were purchased from my local Dollar Tree store. The metal house plaque, and pop-up sticker pack were both purchased from Dollar Tree.  I had all of my other materials on hand.  


Video tutorial






Materials 

One metal house plaque

Pop-up sticker

Paint-I'm using Antique white, and brown/espresso 

One sponge brush

Twine

Scissors

Floral/greenery

Floral snips

Hot glue


Start by taking your sponge brush, and applying your paint onto your metal house plaque. If you choose to do so, you can also apply paint onto the back of your metal plaque. Allow it to fully dry.



 Once dry, take your second paint, and apply it to the bottom wood stand.




Next, take your pop-up sticker, and add it onto your metal house plaque. I decided to add a little hot glue onto the back of my sticker. 


After, take your twine, and begin to wrap it around the bottom of your metal house. First, take your twine, and tie it around the house. Once you have done this, begin to wrap your twin around, and add the desired amount of twine onto the bottom of your metal house. Using your scissors, cut off any remaining twine, and use your hot glue to glue down any of the extra twine.


Begin to add your floral, and greenery onto the bottom section of your house. I used just a little hot glue, and added my floral on both sides on the bottom. 


Your metal house decoration is now complete. I love how simple this was to create, and I only spent a few dollars on materials. Thank you so much for stopping by, and creating with me. I'll see you soon.

Blossom Branch Arrangement

 


Hello everyone! I'm so excited to share this upcycled craft with all of you. We're using just a few materials, and what is so exciting about this is that I had all of my materials on hand. If you were to have to purchase materials, I purchased my paint at my local Walmart for $0.50 each, and my craft foam was $1.25 at my local Dollar Tree. You can also find your floral at Dollar Tree, or any craft store at a discounted price.

Materials 

ONE CANDLE JAR- I AM REUSING A $3 CANDLE JAR FROM TARGET

CRAFT FOAM BLOCK

ACRYLIC PAINT- I'M USING ANTIQUE WHITE, AND BRIGHT MAGENTA

FLORAL

FLORAL SNIPS

ONE TREE BRANCH- I AM USING A BRANCH FROM ONE OF MY TREES

ONE PAINT BRUSH

HOT GLUE

One Paint brush


Start with taking your candle jar and applying your acrylic paint. I combined both colors when I applied it onto my candle jar. Be sure to allow your paint to dry between coats. I used a blow dryer to help with drying. I applied around three coats of paint.


Next, take your scissors, or if you have a craft knife, use it to split your foam block in half. Depending on the size of your candle jar, be sure you cut it to a size that will work with your jar. 

Take your foam block, and add it into your glass jar.


After, take your branch and insert it into the middle of your foam block. I decided to use a branch I cut when my husband and I were doing our spring clean up in our yard. We had a few trees that we had to trim, and I thought it would be perfect to use a few of the branches for projects.


Using your floral snips, begin to cut the tops of your faux floral. You can also cut some of the greenery as well. 

Take your hot glue, and apply it onto each floral piece, and add your floral onto your branches.

Next, take your greenery, and use your hot glue to apply it onto the top section of your foam block. I did this to cover any areas that my foam block was visible. 



You're all done! Your blossom branch arrangement is all done. I love how simple this was to create, and I love that I had all of my materials on hand. I hope that you enjoyed this simple creation. Thank you so much for stopping by, and creating with me! I'll see you soon.

DIY Wood Crate Floral Truck Design

 




Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share this craft with all of you. We're going to be creating a simple wood crate floral truck design. I love the little wood crate boxes that they have at the Dollar Tree, and normally I purchase a few at a time because I know I will use them soon for a craft. I had my unfinished truck decoration, and I figured it would go great with the wood crate. 


Video tutorial 





Materials

One wood crate box

One unfinished truck decoration

Paint

Decorative pop-up sticker

floral

floral snips

One small craft foam block

Hot glue

Paint brush



Start by taking your paint brush, and applying paint onto your truck decoration. I decided to paint my truck white.  


Next, add some black paint to the bed of your truck, and onto the wheels. I also added just a little black paint, and mixed it with the white, and gently smeared the paint on sections of the truck. I wanted to give it a little bit of a rustic look. Set your truck aside, and allow it to dry.


You can now add your pop-up sticker. I added my sticker just below the window on my truck. I took the main section of my sticker off, and used hot glue to attach my sticker. 



Next, take your black paint, and add it onto your wood crate. I added around two coats of paint onto my wood crate. 




Now you're ready to attach your truck onto your wood crate. When adding on your wood crate, add it onto the back lower section of your truck. When you stand your truck up, your wood crate should be flat onto the surface.


Next, take your foam block, and add it inside of your wood crate.



After adding your foam block, take your floral after cutting them to size, and begin to add them through your foam block. 


Your wood crate floral truck design is now complete. All that is left is to display your beautiful creation. Please let me know if you decide to create your very own. Thank you so much for stopping by, I'll see you soon!

Next, using your floral snips, begin to cut a few of your floral, and greenery.



Using your hot glue, attach your greenery, and floral around your design.




Take your twine, and begin to glue it around your wood piece. Using your scissors cut any remaining twine that is left over.


Take a few of your larger greenery pieces, and glue them around the outer surface of your design.


I glued one just above my rub-on transfer, and one just below on the bottom of my wood piece.
If you have any extra floral, you can add those as well. 



Your floral hanging farmhouse decoration is now complete! I love how simple this was to create, and all of my main materials were from my local Dollar Tree.

DIY 4th Of July Hanging Door Decoration

 


Hello everyone! I hope you're all doing well. It isn't summer yet, but these temperatures are definitely feeling like it! How's the weather over where you live? Today I created a quick, and simple craft.  I will take you through creating your very own 4th of July hanging door decoration 


Video tutorial



Materials needed

One wooden truck decoration

One small bamboo ring  -Purchased at Dollar Tree, and comes in a pack of two

Wood stars

Paint

Floral snips

Floral-Purchased at Dollar Tree

Paint brushes

Hot glue

Twine


Start by applying red paint onto your wooden truck.  Between coats you can use a blow dryer, or heat gun to help with drying.


Next, take your black paint, and begin to paint the wheels on your wood truck.  I applied the black paint around the outer section of the wheel, and left the center clear of paint. Using your white paint, apply paint into the center of each wheel. 

Take some blue paint and apply it onto your bamboo ring. Be sure to apply paint on the inner section of the ring.

Using your paint brush apply paint onto each of your wooden stars. I went with red, white, and blue.  Set them aside, and allow it to dry.


Take your your scissors, and cut a medium length strand of twine. Take your twine, and tie each end to your bamboo ring. When you are done, this should create a loop. Tie off the ends, and create a knot. 

After, take your hot glue, and apply some onto the lower section of your bamboo ring. Take your wooden truck, and add it onto your bamboo ring. 


Next, take your wooden stars, and add them onto your bamboo ring. 



After gluing on your stars, take your floral snips, and begin to cut your floral to size. Flip your bamboo ring over so that the back side of the truck is facing up. Use your hot glue, and attach your floral onto the bed section of your truck.

Your 4th of July hanging decoration is now complete! I love how simple this was to create. Let me know if you decide to create your very own. And also be sure to check out my YouTube channel for more video tutorials! --Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll see you soon!
