Most parties are behind us but I wanted to share this easy DIY hostess gift. Make up a custom and personalized clipboard using these supplies:
• craft paint and paint brush
• large monogram stickers
I created a simple design using FrogTape. I did a simple diagonal. Get creative!
I burnished the edges of FrogTape where tape will meet paint using a credit card (or my thumbnail) to activate the Paintblock® Technology for crisp clean lines.
Next I applied two coats of paint to the clipboard on the bottom side of the tape.
While the second coat of paint was still wet, I carefully removed the FrogTape.
Then I let the paint dry.
Once paint is dry, add fun monogram stickers to personalize.
Attach a gift card/greeting card for a birthday or a calendar or agenda for a new year’s eve party hostess gift. Make one for yourself to keep important papers organized or search online for free printables to fit the occasion or theme.
*I received compensation to complete this project for using FrogTape® products. All opinions, projects and ideas are based on my own experience.
Decorating for Halloween? I’m not much of a Halloween decorator but I do have friends with October birthdays and these make a great gifts!
EASY Halloween Wall Art
You’ll need these items from the craft store:
glue dots (or recommended: hot glue)
Using lots and lots of glue dots or hot glue, layer and secure the felt placemat onto the stretched burlap canvas (glue dots = temporary and using stretched burlap for another project in the future, hot glue = more permanent). Then secure the felt decoration on top of the felt placemat. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
Spring is in the air! Add a touch of spring to your home indoors too with this quick spring-inspired project.
I’ve been working on some products for Rust-Oleum (spring = welcome back spray painting season!!!) and wanted to share this with you too. I couldn’t have you thinking I’d abandoned the blog. I’m still here, still working. No worries.
If you’re crafty and enjoy DIY, you likely have a can of Rust-Oleum already in your supply stash. Grab a branch or twig from the yard and get all spray paint happy with it.
I used Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover x2 (color/finish = seaside/gloss).
Once it’s dry, clip on a faux bird and settle a nest in the branches (hot glue if you’d like a little more security) and voila! A spring centerpiece in the time it takes for spray paint to dry.
Wishing you a weekend filled with spring happiness!
