Candy Wrapper Cart

Save those Halloween candy wrappers! You’ll need them for this DIY cart. Luckily, I have a friend on the inside who scored me these Tootsie Roll Pop wrappers. This wheeled cart is perfect for Halloween, but with different styling can be used year round. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see the cart decked out this way. Ok, friends, I must admit this project is a little more complex and […]

Candy Corn Pingpong Ball Art

I don’t like the way candy corn tastes, but I love the way it looks. That’s why I made this candy corn inspired art piece. It’s the perfect compliment to my Candy Corn Topiaries. My friends like to give me odds and ends to craft with. I inherited the colored pingpong balls used in this project that way. You can find them online fairly easily with a simple Google search. The amount needed depends on the […]

Tomato Cage Marbleized Side Table

If you’re in need of a colorful side table, this is the project for you! I’m in love with how it turned out. In addition to being stylish, it’s cost conscious too.

It was so much fun and the results are incredible. Supplies: […]

Patio Set Makeover

My friends at Plaid sent me some samples of their FolkArt Outdoor acrylic paints and some awesome stencil sets. When they arrived, I knew exactly what I was going to use them for. This 3 piece patio set!! It was definitely in need of an upgrade. WOW! Upgrade indeed!!! I’m in love with how this set turned out! I used three different colors on the set. I applied Lawn on the outer portions of the chairs and the slats […]

Pallet Art

I have a small porch outside my back door. The area doesn’t get much natural light. This is how it has looked until I spruced it up this week. Pretty depressing, huh? This space desperately needed some color. So, I made this giant piece of colorful art on a pallet to solve the issue! I think it’s the perfect solution for this once drab area. I added a few additional pieces I had on hand. […]

Shark Wreath

It’s that time of a year again! What time? SHARK WEEK on the Discovery Channel! To celebrate, I decided to craft up this super fun shark wreath. Believe it or not, this fellow is constructed from two foam noodle boards and a pool noodle that I picked up at Dollar Tree. He’s absolutely perfect for Shark Week, but he’d be great at a themed birthday party or just making a splash on the front door […]
