We are 3 friends, who also happen to be moms of 7 boys and 1 cute baby grand-daughter. We love to craft, DIY, cook, remodel, refinish and redo. Pretty much anything crafty we like to do it. We live in Tri-Cities, WA which is pretty much a desert. When you think of Washington most of you are thinking "desert" that can't be so, Washington is so green. Not so much where we are from. But it's a wonderful place to raise our family.
I love subway art. It's a simple project to do and can turn a piece of wood or tile into a fantastic wall saying. They can be hung or mounted on something, or simply just put into a plate holder and placed anywhere in your house.
Here are a few that I made from wood 6x6 pieces. A little crafters paint and mod podge to give a little sheen.......and you have wonderful subway art. All I might add, only cost me about $2.00 to make.
This one I painted gold and printed the words on white and gold card stock.
Though you can't really tell this is painted a dark forest green and printed on red card stock.
This one is my favorite......painted metallic bronze and printed on white and bronze card stock. Isn't the wording just beautiful!
So I thought how can I make a drab paper coffee cup look super fantabulous!!!
TA DAAAA, that's how! No really I saw these super cute covers one day and thought......
hmmmm..... I could do that and make it fun all year around! Got rid of a couple already, but I did have
these two left so I took a picture of them for the blog. Hope you all enjoy!
I saw this pottery barn nock off project on another blog site, can't remember the name, sorry!
Letters (hobby lobby)
used metallic gold craft paint
Here's the pottery barn Noel sign.
............And here is the sign that I made. Painted the letters metallic gold and stapled them together on the back, pretty easy! And you have a fabulous NOEL sign to display anywhere in your house. You can also, mount on a canvas and hang on the wall.
So, for all of those out there that know me, they know that my sewing is definatly amateur. But I do have to say I even impressed myself. I saw this on a blog awhile back and had put it on my list of stuff I wanted to try. So......when christmas rolled around I needed a gift for my SIL and I thought this would be perfect. I have so many more ideas for these pillows. I can't wait to try them out. I even sewed in a zipper! WHat, WHat!
P.S. Dont tell my SIL what she is getting for Christmas.
So I just wanted to post these, though we already have some on our blog, someone may have
missed the ones that Lindsay did last month. It really is such a simple project, and a great way to display photos without putting holes in them. Or perhaps memo cards......whatever your heart desires!
Materials used: 11x14 canvas, fabric, batting, ribbon and buttons. I just laid out the material and batting and stretched it over the canvas. I stapled the stretched fabric to the back of the canvas frame, then crisscrossed the ribbon over, from corner to corner and stapled that as well. Then the buttons I laid at the cross of the ribbon, sewed those on. And Viola......super easy!
