Decorating a wall for all seasons — Spring Specimen Wall Art!

31 Mar

 Do you have an area or spot in your home that you like to change out seasonally? 
I don’t an entry way buffet or table to display seasonal items, so I created a little place in my kitchen that I love to change out during the year.
At Halloween I created these Halloween Specimen Art frames…
During the winter I made some Felt Snowflake frames…
And now that Spring is upon us, I thought it would be fun to create something new for that space. The other day I was tooling around Tai Pan {a really cool home decorating store in Utah/California} and I came upon this $10 frame.
 {Check out what she my friend My friend Ellie G. from Less Cake {More Frosting} did with the same exact frame — 
It’s long and skinny and I thought it was the perfect shape for my kitchen wall.  
And then the another night was at Ikea and I found these super cute, inexpensive frames that I fell in love with.
I combined the two and something exciting happened!! 


The first thing I did was I painted the silver frame white with some glossy craft paint. Now don’t laugh at me, but I didn’t even know that glossy craft paint existed until about a month ago. Can you believe that? I love it!
Once I painted my frame, I went to work on the gallery frames. I found three coordinating scrapbook papers and cut them out to fit inside of the frames. Then I decided to do three different things in the three frames.
The first frame I used a Canvas Corp. tiny burlap-wrapped canvas. I met PSA essentials at CHA this year and they were sweet enough to send me the awesomest customized stamp pad. I love it! More information to come on that {as well as a giveaway} but suffice to say that I love it.
I used their alphabet letters and made a “h” to represent our last name.
I used a circle stencil to cut around the stamp and then I sealed it with Mod Podge and used Plaid’s Dimensional Magic to create a 3-D look. After that dried, I hot glued a giant bottle cap from  Bottle Cap Inc. to the canvas with the “H” on top to the first gallery frame.
I wrapped the burlap frame with some pretty Maya Road ribbon that they sent me. I love the lace look of it. And I also attached a pretty ribbon flower, also from Maya Road, at the top of the frame.
The second gallery frame I added scrapbook paper to and then some Washi tape.

Do you know about Washi tape?? It is the coolest stuff!!! I am working on some projects for a Studio 5 segment and I am loving it!! So cool! You can buy Washi tape on etsy — like here.

I added the Washi tape to this second frame. And then a birds nest to the center.
The third gallery frame I added the third scrapbook paper to and also some Washi Tape.And the I put the glass on top of it and then I wrapped some twine around the glass and tied the twine . I did this two times at the top and bottom. Then I put the glass and paper inside of the gallery frame. I used some tiny little black clothespins from the Canvas Corp and attached some B&W family pictures to those. So that third frame is a little photo gallery that can be switched out. I really love it!

And that is my little Spring/Summer Kitchen Wall. 
 I love that it’s interactive and can be altered over the season/years with different pictures and momentos.
And the white and fresh vibe makes me so excited for Spring!

Guest Project — Make a PB-inspired Spring Pillow Cover!!

23 Mar
Hey Tatertots & Jello gals.
Its Cheri from
I am a wife and a home schooling Mom–I have 4 great kiddos

Jenn and I have known each other for quite a while. She is always coming up with such creative ideas. She is so perky all of the time–she is like the Mary Poppins of blogland.
It is an honor to be here today.
I worked on a project to show you gals.
The PB NEST pillows are so popular so I decided to put a little twist on my design.
Then after I finished my project I went over looking for something else over at the PB only to find this:
Seriously I had not seen this before I made my design–have I been under a ROCK?

I grabbed some canvas that I had on hand and pressed it all nice and smooth.
{I had 2 pieces plus some extra to rip into strips}
{I grabbed some cotton Osenberg that was a little darker too}

Then I wrote in free hand –with a pencil–right onto one of the pieces of fabric.
I wish I could say I used this font–but it was free hand.

I grabbed my DecoArt paint, fabric medium and dazzling metallics paints.

First–I mixed a little bit of the paint with equal amounts of the fabric medium, mixed it together and then painted the letters
H, m and e. I let it dry and then the next day I mixed a tiny bit of the metallics paint with the fabric medium and went over a few areas to give it a little razzle dazzle, I let it dry.
Once it was dry I pressed over the letters –just as the instructions tell you to do so.
Then I ripped each of the letters apart into even rectangles for each one. I liked the ripped edges.
Then it was time to make the “O”.
I ripped a couple strips of the canvas and Onesberg fabrics, plugged in the hot glue gun and started twisting and glueing with tiny dabbs of glue.


Then I glued each of the letters onto the other piece of fabric.

I love it

A new “TWIST” on the NESTING idea
This piece can be hung or finished off as a pillow.
I pulled a wooden egg I have from another project and laid it in the nest–

Come on over to Its So Very Cheri” to put your name into a random draw for this piece.
(it does not come with the egg)
Come check out my fabric tape and chalkboard tape that I made for my tape party.

I will be posting another really cute tape project that I did for my little girls Shabby Chic Bedroom on Friday.
Come back over to see what I did.

 
I am also one of The DIY Club gals.
 DIY Club
 And I have a fun party that goes up every Sunday–it is open 7 days a week
with 7 different categories. I features bloggers each week.
 its so very cheri
 Thanks for having me, Jen! It’s be so fun!! 
Thanks Cheri! What a fun project.
I love that nest idea! 
Cheri has a great, beachy style. Maybe because she lives in Florida. Can you tell I’m jealous of her wonderful weather? Lucky!! 
 Be sure to stop by It’s So Very Cheri and say hi!!

Spring Project: Make a Bench out of an old Crib

25 May
Have you seen those cute headboard benches? I have been wanting to make one for awhile now. The other day I went to lunch with a couple blogging friends — Tausha from Sassy Style and Shelley from House of Smiths.
{I stole this off of Shelley’s blog }
So much fun! Afterward we hit a cute thrift store and then the salvage yard!
Sitting right in front was this antique crib front. I thought it would make a great oversized chair to go on my porch!
This is what I did to make my new oversized chair/bench:
1. I started off with my peeling, dirty old crib front. I washed it down and sanded the whole thing.
2. Then I measured the width of the crib — 30 inches. I cut two long boards from Home Depot to that length. I decided to make the width of the bench 18 inches so it’s pretty deep. You can make a bench anywhere from 16 to 20 inches — depending on how you want it to look. Then I cut the two sideboards 17 inches in length (you’ll see why in a minute).
I added some Gorilla Glue Wood Glue to the edges that touched and then screwed them together.
3. Then I cut the boards for the top of the seat. I cut them 18 inches in length so that there would be a 1-inch hang over on the front of the seat. I also used wood glue on the underside of the boards before I hammered them onto the frame.
4. For the legs of the bench, I bought two sturdy chair legs from Home Depot. They have an end that has a screw on it. Then I bought some metal leg attachers — the leg screws right into the metal piece. I added an extra block of wood underneath to add more stability. Then I screwed that attachment into the bottom of the seat at the front two corners. The other legs of the bench are the back of the crib. I also used Gorilla Wood Glue between the boards.
5. I found some cute moulding to put on the back of the bench to add a little more interest. And I bought some rope moulding for the bottom of the seat apron. Then I attached the seat to the crib using L-brackets I also found at Home Depot.
6. Then I primed the bench using spray-on wood primer.
7. After the primer had dried overnight, I was ready to paint! DecoArt sent me some patio paint to try. It can be used on concrete, wood or metal and is great for things that are going to be exposed to the elements. I used the “Wrought Iron Black” color. To apply it I used a big bristle brush that could get in all the nooks and crannies. I put two coats on the bench and let it dry.
8. Then to accent the wood details on the moulding, I decided to use a glaze over the top. I took some “Dark Eucalyptus Green” DecoArt Patio Paint — which is really more of a pretty teal color. I put about 2 ounces in a plastic cup and mixed it with water-based glaze from Home Depot. Then I brush that combination on the bench and iped it back off with a rag.
My assistant helped me with this stage — she did a great job!
I think I’m going to look for another old crib and make a matching one for the other side of the porch!
It was my first big foray into the world of power tools.

Spring Sweater Redo — Part 2 {and 3 & 4}

4 May
I had so much fun making over my white sweater a few weeks ago, 
that I decided to do another – more colorful one. And while I was at it, I made one for two of my girls. We had fun picking out the material for the buttons and the big ric rac. I let them pick out the color of sweater (Walmart) too. Mine is from Target.
{I was having a bad hair day}
My 10 year old hasn’t taken hers off since we finished it 🙂
And when we were done, my teenage daughter even commented that she wanted one!
If you want to make one, HERE is the tutorial. This is a quick and easy project — approximately 20 minutes per sweater. And don’t worry — if you can’t sew, you can use Liquid Stitch on the ric rac — works like a charm!
This is the week of The Mother’s Day Extravaganza — 
it starts on Thursday!
And, don’t forget to get your projects ready to link up on Friday for the DIY Club!

I’m linking up to these fun parties!

Have a Happy Week!

Spring Project: Ruffled BURLAP Runner Tutorial!

6 Apr
I have had a few people ask me to post a tutorial for my Spring burlap runner. So here it is!
{Spring Ruffled Table Runner}
Materials:
Burlap
Fabric scraps or fat quarters
Fabric for back of runner
Ribbon or quilt binding
Quilt batting
Sewing machine and thread
Pins
Here’s what you do:
First decide how long you want your runner to be. I wanted mine to be 60 inches in length by 17 inches wide. Then cut your burlap to that size. 
Once the burlap is cut, cut your fabric for the backing. I used two different fabrics that I alternated for the back — two panels of each fabric. If you are making panels for the back, sew them together so they are the same size as the burlap piece. 
Then cut your quilt batting to the same size. Lay all three pieces together, with the quilt batting in the middle. Pin it in place, then sew around the perimeter — sewing the three layers together. Then lay the runner out on your work surface. Decide where you want your big ric rac to be on the quilt. I measure to the center of the runner, and then I measure the middle of that total and put the ric rac in that space — 1/4 of the way on each side. Pin it in place, then sew it.
Now take your ribbon or quilt binding material and fold it in half, fitting the edge of the runner in the fold of the ribbon. Start the ribbon on one side of the runner — not at a corner. Pin in place all the way around the runner. At the corners, make a 90-degree fold and pin in place. Make sure to fold the end of the ribbon under so there are no fraying edges. Now sew the ribbon in place.
Now it’s time to make the ruffles. I made mine 3.5 inches in width. I double the length of each fat quarter — 36 inches. I cut each fat quarter into two 3.5 inch wide sections, then I sewed the two pieces together. Then I sewed around the edge of each fabric strip. This keeps the fabric from fraying too much. Once I sewed around each fabric strip, I then sewed a wider strip down the entire length of each strip — making sure to back stitch at one end and not the other. Then I took the exposed ends of thread and pulled, creating a ruffle. Then I took each ruffled strip over to the runner and fit it to the width of the runner — making the ruffles uniform. I did this for each fabric strip. For a 60 inch runner — I had 13 ruffles plus the two strips of big ric rac. I spaced each of the ruffles about 3/4 of an inch apart. Once all the fabric strips were ruffled, I laid them out on the runner and then pinned them in place. It takes a little bit of patience, because you might have to rearrange the spacing so that it is all uniform.
Then I sewed each of the ruffles onto the runner. Once the ruffles were sewn, I frayed the edges of each ruffle for a little interest.

And I was done!
Now I have a fun, ruffly runner to brighten up my kitchen! And, it matches my ruffly burlap banner!

Spring Project: Ribbon Wristlets!

6 Apr
This project has been on my to-do list for awhile now. My bloggy friend Cristin @ ser.en.d.ip.i.ty did a post on cute wristlets that she had made before Christmas and I was immediately enamored. I quickly put an ad on Freecycle to see if anyone had any leftover ribbon or trim so I could make some. I never got any response to my ad, so that project was put in my to-do pile.
I came upon some scalloped ribbon through PeachyCheap and I thought it would be so fun to make some for Spring. So I did! I think they are bright and happy looking!
If you want to make these, they are very easy to do. You can make one in about 15 minutes. This is what you need:
Ribbon — different widths so you can layer it.
Embellishments — I used some jewelry accents from the craft store. I made a flower out of some fabric scraps.
Some connectors. I found some that clamp at Michael’s in the jewelry department. Very easy to attach.
  • I ruffled some of the ribbon by pinning folds in the ribbon. Then I measured it against my wrist and cut it to size. I left about 1/2 inch on each side so I could turn it under and sew it. You could also glue gun the edges if you don’t sew.
  • Then I laid another ribbon top of the folded one and sewed a straight line down the middle. If you don’t sew you can use a glue gun.
  • Finally, I attached the embellishment. I hot glued the lighter embellishments on. The heavier jewelry embellishments I hand-sewed onto the ribbon. 
UPDATE: I’ve had a lot of people ask me about the clasps I used. I found them at Michaels’ they are from the brand Plaid. And called Pearls and Pumps. They come with some velvet and gathered ribbon, three sets of clasps to a package for $3.99. You can get them for $2 by printing off THIS coupon.

    Spring Project: Burlap Flowered Topiaries

    1 Apr
    I got a wonderful tip from Lindsey @ Pleated Poppy last week — she clued me in to a great place to get beautiful fabric, Hawthorne Threads. They have a great selection of yummy fabric and it’s really easy to order. I was thrilled when a package came for me TWO days after I ordered! 

    It was all so pretty – I didn’t want to cut any of it up. I finally decided to make some little Spring topiaries.

    I used burlap as the background and then used the pretty fabric to make fabric flowers. They look so bright and Spring-y in my kitchen! The topiary would make a cute centerpiece on your table, but I decided to make three – I think everything looks better in threes, don’t you?


    If you would like to make some, here is what I did:
    Supplies:
    Terra Cotta Pot(s)
    Styrofoam ball(s)
    Wood dowel(s)
    ribbon
    Fabric scraps
    Scrapbook paper scraps
    Jeweled scrapbook brads
    Moss
    Gorilla Glue
    Flower arranging block(s)
    Vinyl numbers or stencil and paint (optional)
    • Spray painted the pots. (3 coats). Once dried, I added a vinyl number to each pot. You could also stencil something on each pot. Or just leave it plain too – it’s up to you.
    • Cover the balls in burlap. I cut a 3 inch strip of burlap. Wrapped it around the ball to see how long to make it. Cut it to that length. Attached it with hot glue. TIP: This is a great way to NOT burn your fingers. Get a few straight pins that you don’t mind ruining. After you apply the hot glue, stick a straight pin in the ball and let it cool. It helps attach the burlap to the ball so well! 
    • I made little cuts in the sides of the burlap. Run a line of hot glue inside the outer edge of the burlap strip. Then press the edges down, the little slits will help the burlap conform to the ball shape without wrinkles. Make an oval section of burlap to cover up each end of the ball.
    • Once the ball(s) are covered in burlap, set them aside and start making the flowers. Cut your fabric scraps — mine were 2 inches wide by 20 inches long. I made 14 flowers per topiary. Then make a long, running stitch down the middle of each strip with your machine, or by hand. Then gather the thread at one end of each strip and pull to gather the material. I gathered all of the strips at the same time.
    • Once the strips are gathered, make them into flowers. Take one end and fold it around in a circular motion until you have made a circle, make the circle a little bigger each time it goes around. It should go around about three times. Secure with a pin.
    • You don’t have to use a machine to do this craft. If you don’t want to use a machine, skip the gathering step and move right on to the this step — You can make the flower using hot glue. Take one end of the strip make a little fold to the side and add a dab of hot glue, keep doing this, going in a circular motion and gathering your material as you hot glue it. This may take some time and patience. 
    • Once you have made your flowers, hot glue them together. I flipped each flower over and added hot glue from the back, putting a dab under each layer of material until it keeps it shape. Remove the pins once cooled. 
    • Cut out some circles out of scrapbook paper. I used three different papers. I used a 1/2 inch punch. Then put a jeweled scrapbook brad through each circle. 
    • Now attach the flowers onto the burlap balls. I used straight pins to arrange them on the ball ahead of time. Space the flowers out so that the burlap shows though the middle. Then I dabbed some Gorilla Glue onto the back of each flower. I then put a straight pin back in the middle of the flower to hold the flower on to the ball until the glue dried. Once the glue dried, then I pulled the pins out.

    • Now attach the scrapbook paper to the center of each flower with a dab of hot glue. Hold until the glue cools.
    • I put a little block of flower arranging foam in the bottom of each pot. I put a little Gorilla Glue in the bottom. Then I took a wood dowel and stuck it in the bottom of the burlap/flower ball and then through the center of the pot. 
    • Then I wrapped the dowel in ribbon.
    • Finally I put hot glued a layer of moss over the top of flower arranging foam.
