Puff Paint on Canvas

Happy Sunday! Today I am sharing a craft I did for Elisabeth over 3 years ago. It was one of the first blog posts I did on the old blog (now it’s one of the most popular searches on Pinterest for puff paint on canvas!).  Wait until you see how easy it is to add handwriting to a canvas. It’s a fun and easy craft and you could really play around with the idea to come up with some fun projects.

Light Pendants as Candle Holders

Thrifting is the best weekend therapy after a long work week.  I love digging and searching for the random goodies, especially when you don’t have anything in mind that you need or want. Whenever you find something that gets your heart beating, that’s hidden beneath the rubble pile that’s when you know you’ve hit the jackpot. My grandmother likes to call them “treasures” and I’ve been using that term ever since. Today’s treasure is a set of hammered glass light pendants that I used for these unique candle holders.

DIY Metal Orb

This weekend I was walking around the ribbon section at Hobby Lobby and found METAL RIBBON. That’s right, you heard me right. METAL RIBBON. This stuff is beautiful! My mouth fell open and I think I even gasped when I realized what it was. They had several varieties (designs and widths) to choose from and the ones I picked up were $4.99 and 50% off. I knew right away that I wanted to turn the ribbon into metal orbs.

Monogram Cork Board from Wine Corks

I made this monogram cork board for my mom after finding the idea on pinterest. I collected wine corks and got several people to help collect corks for me as well. All I had to buy was the frame and the gorilla glue.

Vertical Cork Board from Wine Corks

I had a huge stash of wine corks saved up and several ideas on how to use them! I had already made my mom an awesome monogram cork board, but discovered I didn’t have the space for one of my own. I do however have this support pillar in my kitchen that needed some oomph. That’s when I saw the idea to use a yard stick to make a vertical cork board on Pinterest. Lucky for me, I had just scooped up a yard stick at Lowe’s for $2.98!
