I do love being able to simplify my life by making some of my crafts double duty! Fall and Thanksgiving are perfect for this! And I super LOVE this craft!
I haven’t really been an orange fan in the past, but lately, I really am loving it… (Maybe my hubby’s love of the Bronco’s is wearing me down.;))… Don’t you think it turned out super cute???? Best part you can do it to! WOOT WOOT!
As always you can buy the completed project of the kit, or the vinyl just go here(http://shop.fabdecor.com/DIY_c9.htm
If you want to do the wood yourself, and just buy the vinyl… I did the wood by using a 2×4, the sizes I used were a 3.5″, 4″ and 8″. The vinyl I did in beige, orange and dark brown. I also painted the blocks to match.
The colors I used were nutmeg, pumpkin orange and country tan. I love how they look perfect together! I did 2 layers of paint, if you let the paint dry between coats you end up using less paint.
Vinyl is so fun, and you use it very much like a sticker, But sometimes you have to add a little extra pressure, I just use my debit card, it works perfect and I generally know where I can find it.
I am a big ribbon, tulle, anything to embellish, I just LOVE it, I also love the tulle and raffia mix, I use a staple gun and glue to attach it to the side of the blocks. Do this to both sides, tie it at the top anyway you like, you can do it a couple different ways. I just tie a bow, like you are tying your shoe, then cut the loops of the bow in the middle… Then wah-la a fabulously fluffy top. and this is what you end up with:
Well one side, I did mine for fall and Thanksgiving! What do you think? Do you like crafts that serve double-duty?
