DIY Wood Wall Hanging
Created by: Paper & Stitch
This is such a fun Wood Wall Hanging Project. What I really love about it is that it has a little surprise… one side is painting in a neutral wash and then the other side is painting in a trio of colors! Of course you can paint them in any shades and style you want to. Create one that is perfect for your Studio… the Nursery or the Kid’s Room and more. You can go bold or pastel… so many options and when you are in the mood to change it up… just flip it to the other side for the second design. This little wood sculpture is so easy … so whimsical and fun! It’s a great afternoon project. I was even thinking for the child’s version… you can personalize the horizontal piece for your kid’s name! Allow your imagination to soar and enjoy!
Fairy Garden Mason Jar Toppers
Created by: Crafts By Amanda
I don’t want to wish our lives away… but Spring is right around the corner and so is Easter (it’s late this year though… you have until April 21!) So when I saw these adorable Mason Jars I thought they would be a great Spring Project and an especially wonderful Easter Project because you can fill the jar part up with everyone’s favorite treat and you would have an inclusive gift! A great way to get a head start on things. These could actually be the “new” small Easter Basket. You are going to come up with so many fabulous ideas for this. You can even take them in a totally different direction and make Wedding Favors with a pair of Love Birds or how about Kid Birthday Favors with a Super Hero or My Little Ponies or Paw Patrol or… you get the picture. The basic idea will lead to so many more incredible ideas and I bet you will find a really good reason to make these… I know my wheels are spinning. Don’t forget to visit Amanda for tons of inspiration.
