Tutorial: Fabric Bulletin Board {revamp}

A really good friend of mine gave me a beige on beige fabric bulletin board last summer. I knew I wanted it, but I also knew that the beige on beige was going to have to go! For months I looked for fabric, and thus I found this beautiful black and off white print. I scoured the ribbon aisles at Michaels Crafts and fell in love with this turquoise. Thankfully, Mr. Woodsy helped me with this project. I have the begining stages of arthritis in my hands, so gripping a nail gun is out of the … [Read more...]

Laundry Room Signs {Wash, Dry, Fold}

I started these laundry room signs back in September, and they sat... for months. Until finally, I was tired of looking at them in my guest bedroom. I had finally decided how I would display them and what color scheme I was going for in the laundry room. I originally got the idea from CraftOManiac, and with some pre planing aka browsing the internet, I knew how I wanted to make these signs my own!I purchased the same plaques from the dollar store, removed the ribbon, and began painting with a … [Read more...]

We hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday! I wanted to post about this tree prior to Christmas, but we just got too busy! I saw these amazing tissue paper tree's earlier this month on Spunky Junk {go to there tutorial for more details} and I instantly knew I wanted to make at least one tissue paper tree. I actually wanted to make a variety of tree's but like most projects... time got the best of me! Remember, how I hosted my third craft lunch at work the other week? Well this was the project I … [Read more...]

Spooky Tree’s

Two week's ago Mr. Woodsy surprised me with two very large spooky tree's! They were damaged and had been used on a play set many years back. He decided he would restore them (i.e., repaint them), and put them in our front yard. I agree'd to let him take them home, but to be honest I had very little faith that they would come out like they were originally painted. He bought a few tester paints, and started painting away... too my surprise (and I think his, too) they came out AWESOME!!! Way better … [Read more...]

Halloween Printables Placed on Canvas!

As soon as Craftly Ever After posted these awesome free Halloween printable I knew I needed to incorporate them in my house! After I printed those 2 I then found this awesome "If The Broom Fits Ride It" free printable from Crafts & Sutch! Make sure you visit HERE and HERE to print yours out too! I took an 8 x 10 canvas, spray adhesive, and the print out. I cut the print out to fit the canvas, adhered it to the canvas, and voila! Super quick, inexpensive project that … [Read more...]

{Mini Tutorial} Creepy Critter Boxes

I got the idea for this project originally from Tatertots and Jello with her {Creepy} Halloween Specimen Art tutorial, and then I saw the awesome "Glitter Spider Art" made by Ameroonie Designs. I knew I needed to make a version of my own, and I wanted to make it interchangeable for the holidays. I'm thinking tree's and snowflakes for Christmas, hearts for Valentine's day, 3 leaf clovers for St. Patrick's day, and eggs & bunnies for Easter! That's why I used foam core as the … [Read more...]

Dead Ivy…

... well it's not really dead--I just wanted to make it look dead! I have rather large kitchen cabinets, and absolutely nothing that sits on top of them all year round *minus christmas when I put up beautiful vines of pine with white lights*. I wanted to do a similar but creepy effect for Halloween. That's when I decided I would spray paint perfectly green ivy and make it look "dead". Supplies: -Black Matte Spray Paint-Vines of Ivy-Painters drop clothLay a drop cloth out, and start … [Read more...]

I think we have a rodent problem…

For the past few year's I've eyed Martha Stewart's mice cut-outs. Each year I resist temptation, but this year it got hte best of me! I was browsing the aisles of Michael's *like I do just about every day during lunch* and these fabulous cut-outs were half off!!! How could one resist... so I immediately snatched up a package and for $3 and 12 mice later... I was a super excited camper! Now, let's not tell Mr. Woodsy that I found a FREE template HERE that allows you to print out, cut-out, … [Read more...]

{Mini Tutorial} Spider Dish Towel

I feel like it's long over due to feature a sewing project!!!Before we pulled our Halloween bins down form the attic I knew I wanted to make a dish towel. I had leftover fabric from my Halloween Table Runner I made along with the dangling spider beads and knew that those would pair well with my dish towel. I had just finished my dish towel when Mr. Woodsy finally decided to pull all of our bins down from the attic... that's when I discovered I purchased quite a few Halloween dish towels on … [Read more...]
