Easy Farmhouse Style Ornaments


I had so much fun with my daughter, Carrie, & my friend, Cindy, creating these farmhouse style Christmas ornaments for the upcoming open house at Junk Mama's General Store. They were super easy using the knob transfers from Prima.

We filled clear ornaments with snow...

 Then we added a knob transfer to each ornament. It's so easy... just remove the transfers from the backing and rub them on!
 We also added a black & silver ribbon to finish them off...
There are 8 each of 6 different designs on one sheet of the transfers so you can make a lot of ornaments for not a lot of money.

 We also made some using 2 different sizes of white ornaments...
 And, we did a few on some pretty wooden snowflakes...



 Happy Farmhouse Christmas!

Concrete Pumpkin Vase


This fun project will leave you with a pumpkin that won't rot! You can use it year after year to hold your favorite Fall flowers.

Here's what you'll need...
Fast drying concrete
Bucket For Mixing Concrete
Hand Shovel
Plastic Pumpkin Bucket
Pam Cooking Spray
Glass Jar
Utility Knife
Twine
E6000 Glue

Spray the inside of the plastic pumpkin bucket with Pam...

Mix the concrete according to the directions and fill the pumpkin bucket with the mixture...

While the concrete is still wet, insert a jar, leaving about 2 inches of the jar above the pumpkin. Set aside to dry overnight.

Use a utility knife to cut away the plastic pumpkin...


Add E6000 to the exposed jar and wrap with twine to create a pumpkin stem...


The jar allows you to use real flowers, but of course, you could use faux flowers.


After Halloween, simply turn the Jack-o-lantern face around, and your pumpkin vase can be used through Thanksgiving...

Halloween "NO SNOW" Globe

It may be snowing in other parts of the world at Halloween, but here in Georgia it can sometimes still feel like Summer.
So, I created a no snow globe that is a super cute addition to my Halloween decor.

I found some small candy corn bottle brush trees and a creepy little witch at Michael's and placed them on a round wood slice...



Before I glued them down, I made sure that a stemless wine glass would fit over them...

Once the trees and witch were lined up to fit under the glass, I glued them to the wood. I also added some moss.

Cute! And, since the glass came from the Dollar Tree, and the trees and witch were 40% off, this was an inexpensive project.

I chose not to glue the glass down so I can still use it once this witch heads up to the attic.

Georgia...Home

I love my home state of Georgia!
It's like an old sweet song.
So, it's always fun to create state pride projects, like this one.

My son put together a pallet style board and I stained it with VooDoo Gel Stain in the color Tobacco Road. I love this stain from the Dixie Belle Paint Company because it's water based which makes for easy clean up.
 


I cut strips of fabric in different colors and patterns...

I applied the fabric to the wood with ModPodge and used a hotel key card to smoothe out the wrinkles...

Then I added a little more of the stain t the edges of the fabric...


I painted a bead board cutout of Georgia with the color, Gravel Road, then added a little whitewash glaze, and glued it to the board using E6000...

I bought a balsa wood Home from Michael's, painted it with the color Mermaid Tail, and glued it to the board...



Georgia
a song of you
comes as sweet and clear
as moonlight through the pines.

Happy Camper Pumpkin

 Now that it's September, it's time to jump right in to Fall projects!

Every year I stock up on pumpkins from the dollar store. There are so many things you can do with them.

Here are some I transformed & shared on the blog back in 2011.
You can see that post HERE.
I can't believe I've been blogging that long!!!

This project is a little more whimsical than the book covered pumpkins from my past.
I started by painting the pumpkin with the Dixie Belle color Flamingo...

Once dry, I added painters tape around the pumpkin and painted below it with the color Mermaid Tail...

I used a small paintbrush to add a thin line of Colonel Mustard between the Flamingo and the Mermaid Tail...

Pencil erasers make perfect polka dots...

I painted on a door and a window, then glued flowers below the window to create a window box...


I glued on 2 wood slices for wheels...

I painted a craft stick, glued another wood slice onto it, and inserted it into the pumpkin...

I painted 3 toothpicks, inserted them into the pumpkin, and added a banner made by folding paper tape over twine and cutting the tape into triangles...

Finally, I took my camper and parked it at the lake...

Do you think this is how Cinderella goes camping?
