Aging And Stenciling Wood Signs

When my husband and I lived in Louisiana in the 1978ish time, we bought a house in Shreveport. It was a corner lot, fenced in house. We had a large kitchen, a large yard, a large den, and 2 bathrooms. I was in Love with my house, and we bought it for $17,850.00. I can just imagine what it’s worth now.

 

Back then I was really into home decor. Every holiday I would decorate, make my own wreaths, candle holders, just all kinds of crafts.

 

I didn’t age signs but I used to age our furniture. I remember some of the steps. I would first paint the wood then put a coat of paint thinner to make it crackle, then sand it then coat it with a clear covering. It always turned out so primitive although at the time I didn’t know about primitive crafting.

 

I also used to macrame shelves for my husbands co-workers and the wood that I would use I always did that aging process.

 

So needless to say I absolutely adore these signs and Americanprim Primitive How To’s has graciously posted a step by step tutorial on how to make these aged signs. It’s good fun, makes wonderful gifts, or keep for yourself 🙂

Mother’s Day Gift Craft Idea: PVC Pipe Planter

I Love finding fun and new ways to house plants. Here’s one I found using PVC pipe. It’s a great idea and supposedly you can get the PVC with holes already in them. I don’t know I rarely shop for things like this but I definitely wanna shop and look for this. 

 

My oldest daughter works at MarMac Ace Hardware here in Kahului, Maui so I’ll ask her to check on it for me 🙂

 

I think it’s a beautiful way to display plants and wondering how it would do with herbs 🙂

 

This is the URL for the website I got this idea from. You can get the tutorial from there: http://www.thegreenhead.com/2012/02/flower-tower-freestanding-planter.php

Fat Albert Halloween

Does anyone remember watching Fat Albert? Wasn’t it popular in the 1970s or so? I remember I was a graduated from high school and my brother-in-law then about 7 years in 1973 around there always watched this.

I Love Bill Cosby! I listened to him since I was 6 years old. Good clean comedy!

Mickey Mouse Club: “Hap-Hap-Happy Snowman”

I Love old programs like this. At the time my life was not great so having things like this, memories of this, made my life much easier to bear 🙂

Stencil Decorated Shower Curtain

I remember once long ago I saw this craft in a magazine, painting a design on a shower curtain. I liked it so much that I went out and bought a clear shower curtain and paint. The design was free hand swirls. I thought it was so pretty. I had even planned, in my mind, to buy clear bathroom accessories to paint the same design as my shower curtain. But, I never did it but I never forgot the craft either.

 

Here is a shower curtain that is painted using a stencil for the design. 

 

I found this tutorial at HomeGoods. Here is the link to the tutorial: http://www.homegoods.com/blog/2011/08/28/stencil-or-stamp-a-shower-curtain/

Mother’s Day Craft Gift Idea: Altoids Garden In A Tin

Do you eat Altoids and like the can but don’t know what to do with it so you just throw it away? I don’t but I have a brother who always ate Altoids. However, he’s now living in California so I’ll have to find someone else who loves to eat Altoids.

 

Here is a great idea to recycle those empty Altoid tins. It’s cute and you can make up several to put in a gift basket along with gardening gloves and tools for a mom or grandma who loves to garden 🙂

 

I wonder how these Altoid tins would do if covered front and back with some pretty design and used as a jewel gift box?

Manga Comic Book Planter

Now this is definitely different but if you’re an avid Manga comic book reader like my youngest daughter then there might be a little sadness about this. 

Nevertheless! I think this is a very cool idea! I wonder if you could take a bunch of magazines and just bunch them up together? That’s what I thought it was at first until I went to another site and found out it’s one (1) comic book!

This Manga comic book planter is home to a radish plant. Very pretty and unique I think 🙂

I found this at tlcwatch.com and this is the URL although there really isn’t much of a tutorial so a little experimenting might be in order. I’m going to give two (2) URL’s to look up:

1.   http://www.tlcwatch.com/tag/creative-ideas-of-diy-planting/

2.   http://www.dvice.com/archives/2010/04/manga-farming-t.php

I’ve often wondered what kinds of crafts could be made with magazines. There are so many and they just seem to go to waste so this is certainly an idea to experiment with! It’s off to Maui Friends Of The Library (MFOL)!
