Chevron Wall Art

Posted on

I love the chevron pattern and had an empty wall in my daughter’s room so thought I would give it a try.  I mean how hard could it be right?

You will need

  • painters tape or masking tape
  • canvas or board
  • paint
  • small roller or foam brush

As much as I love  crafts I hate measuring:)  That is why mine is off a bit.  It would have not been this good but my husband stepped in and got me started.  After  I was finished I found a few websites that have printable templates you just follow.  I suggest that method as you can tell the bottom of mine were not perfect but I think they still turned out nice for a bedroom.  If it were for my living room I may have started over.

I used a double pack of canvases for $7 at Wal-mart, leftover paint and tape, and a foam brush.  So for $8 I got two large statement pieces how can you beat that .  Yet again another great DIY project found on Pinterest.

DIY Tiered Stands/Cupcake Holders

Posted on

I love parties, decorating, and cheap and easy projects.  After typing in DIY on pinterest this pin caught my eye and I am so  glad it did.   My total cost to make this one was $5.00 that was it!  I had spray paint and glue already and everything else was purchased at the dollar tree.

I forgot to take photos of the items used and wish I would have because the change a little glue and spray paint amaze me sometimes.

Needed:

  • 3 platters (silver dollar tree platters)
  • 2 clear glass candle stick holders (dollar tree)
  • spray paint in any color
  • hot glue
  1. spray paint trays and candle stick holders
  2. hot glue top of 1st tray to upside-down candle stick “top”
  3. glue “bottom” of candle stick and place next tray on top
  4. repeat

You can do any color combo you can think of, the possibilities are endless.

This was the perfect addition to my 8 year olds bedroom.

I made one for a birthday party also.
