Scrappy Whimsical Dreamcatcher

I thought I’d take the opportunity to clean out my ribbons/lace/trimmings bin to create something pretty for my daughter’s bedroom. How fun is this Scrappy Whimsical Dreamcatcher?

For this project you will need:

  • embroidery hoop
  • doily
  • scraps of ribbon, trimmings, lace, etc.
  • hot glue gun + glue sticks
  • scissors

Gather up your supplies and all of the scraps that go well together. In my case, I picked pinks and whites… great for Valentine’s Day or my daughter’s bedroom.

Remove the inner hoop of the embroidery round and cover it with the doily. Secure it around the edges of the inner hoop with hot glue and trim all the excess with your scissors.

Add the outer hoop back on and secure. Then start tying on and gluing your scraps to the bottom of the hoop. Just slip the ends through the doily openings.

Once you are happy with the scraps added, use your scissors to trim up the bottoms to the desired length. Then hang it on a wall!

Folding Chair Makeover

Last year I shared my Craft Room Reveal as well as my Two-Tone Chair Makeover for my desk and I am still just as in love with these projects as I was the first day. My daughter and I spend A LOT of time in the craft room. This is where I work on projects for the blog, sign orders from my shop, and it’s also where we homeschool most days. That being said, I needed more seating in this room… rather than having to drag another chair in from the dining room. And because I’m cheap frugal, I decided to use what I had already. Let’s bust out the spray paint and do a Folding Chair Makeover!

She’s so pretty, isn’t she? I promis you that she was NOT pretty at all before…

Folding Chair Makeover1

Ew, right?! All I did was grab a few cans of my favorite colors of spray paint, a damp rag to clean the chair up, and a drop cloth to put the chair on while I painted it outside.

I used Rustoleum, which has a primer in it, but if your paint does not have a primer in it, I highly recommend primering your chair first. This while ensure that the paint on your chair will last much longer.

After I painted the entire chair twice and allowed dry time, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a vinyl heart. I applied it to the chair and painted the inside (by hand) pink. Because well… pink hearts.

There’s one more folding chair out in my garage that I’m planning to makeover as well. Pretty much nothing is safe from pretty paint in my house. The after is just SO much better than before, you can’t help but #paintallthethings.

Do you love to paint as much as I do? What’s your current favorite color?
