“I Heart U” Wood Alphabet Art

i heart you wood alphabet sign

I have adored, over the years of blogging, seeing all the different alphabet walls in nurseries and playrooms.  It adds a little whimsy to the room and, as an added bonus, helps preschool age children learn the alphabet.  I wanted in on the action to create an extreme impact on a wall in our playroom.  This “alphabet I heart you sign” is four feet by almost five feet!  It was a fairly simple project with a whole bunch of Krylon spray paint involved.

Painted Plates Garden Art

painted_plate_garden_art

I have seen some vintage dish and plate flowers on Pinterest and thought making my own from some inexpensive Dollar Tree glassware and glass paint would add a pop of pizazz to my yard this Spring. These are so easy to make and it is really hard to screw it up.  You don’t need to have painting experience to make this garden art.  Just a few swooshes with a paint brush and some glue and you are all set.

Indiana Love Sign {Paint Stick Project}

Indiana state sign DIY

Back in September I hosted a State Pride Tour with a bunch of other DIY bloggers.  It was seriously so much fun creating a project that culminates the place you call home.  I decided to tackle another Indiana project that honors Indiana farming.  One of the main crops in Indiana is soybeans.  In fact Indiana ranks 4th overall in soybean production.  Did you know that Plaid makes Soy paint?  My guess is – many of those beans came right here from my great state.

I’m Dreamin of a Sharpie Canvas Wall Art

sharpie-canvas-art

I absolutely love this sharpie canvas wall art of the song lyric from the Beatles.  I remember listening to this song over and over again on my cassette tape back in middle school probably floating off and dreaming of my latest crush.  Good times. Laura from Finding Home made this super inexpensive piece from foamcore and a Sharpie marker.
