Deer Pillow

It seems like the season is flying by, and I am still trying to get some fun projects done.


Pillow


I have been wanting to do another fun deer project and Oriental Trading sent me some fun products to review and the box included these great burlap pillow covers.

What you will need:
Deer pattern - I just found one on the internet
Burlap Pillow cover - found HERE
Heat n Bond
Plaid fabric




First, iron the Heat n Bond to the fabric.



Next, trace the deer pattern on the paper of the Heat n Bond - make sure that your pattern is inverted, so it will be facing the right way on the pillow.



Then, cut out the deer.



Next, peel off the paper from the Heat n Bond and iron the deer on the right side of the burlap pillow cover and stuff!


Didn't he turn out fun!

Pallet Deer

The Holiday season is fast approaching, and I am trying to squeeze in a couple of fun projects!  This was a fun project!





First, cut the boards from the wood pallet to the length you prefer.  I cut my 14 inches long.



Next, you will want to fasten the pieces of wood together.  I was going to glue mine together, but my handy husband suggested something a bit more sturdy.  He used his pocket hole jig to screw the boards together.


I used my cricut to cut an anchor pattern, but a cricut is not required, any stencil will work for this.



Stick the stencil to the boards and paint in the anchor.




 Next, decide where you want your rope and hot glue it on.

October 31st

I can hardly believe it is October.  I love decorating for Halloween and just can't seem to resist making something new each year!

Halloween


I started out with some plain MDF numbers.



First paint them black.



Next, trace around the numbers on some fun scrapbook paper.



Use some modge podge to attache the scrapbook paper to the letters.


Lastly, add a few embellishments!

Fall Sign



I have been itching to make something for fall.  I had bought a cabinet door from a recycle center and had some old cedar fence boards to use, so I put them together, and this is what I came up with!

Fall Sign




I started out with a plain unfinished cabinet door.


I glued on a wood embellishment and painted the whole project brown.





Then, I painted over the brown with and Heirloom white paint




I then sanded it a bit here and there to give it a little of an antique look.



For the letters - I cut some old cedar fence boards to the size I wanted.



Then, I cut out some stencils with my cricut (any stencil will work).


I painted the letters.


Lastly, I glued the letters to the cabinet door.

Lovely Little Birds

It has been such a busy summer with the kids that I haven't been posting some of my fun projects, so I wanted to get this fun bird post in before the summer is completely gone!

Birds


I started out with a windowed cabinet door.



I painted it an Heirloom white and antiqued it a little.



Next, I glued some jute to the back side of the window (the branch the birds will sit on).



I cut the birds out of different scrapbook paper and used some double sided tape to attache them to the front.



Birds projects are so fun!





Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cabinet Door Flag

In my thrifting I came across a few cabinet doors, and I just had the urge to make one into a flag.  See what you think.



What you will need:
Cabinet door
Small strips of wood
Paint
Sandpaper
Faux Glaze

First I painted and antiqued the frame part of the cabinet using gray paint.  There is a tutorial HERE on how to do this.



I then painted the strips and antiqued them a bit also.  There is a tutorial HERE


Then I assembled the flag.



Then it was time to do the stars.



First I made a pattern for the sides of the star, traced them and cut them out of script scrapbook paper.



Then, I used some Modge Podge to adhere the scrapbook paper to the star.


Lastly, I glued the stars on the flag.

I love flag decor!
