DIY Feelin’ Lucky Stamped Shamrock Frame

Bring some green into your home with this DIY Feelin’ Lucky Stamped Shamrock Frame!

It’s that time of year to get your home dressed up in green in preparation for March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day!  Since we could all use a little extra luck in our lives I thought it would be fun to create a shadowbox full of shamrocks.  I grabbed the shamrock stamp and 2 different green inks from Rubberstamps.com.   I had so much fun making and cutting out the shamrocks for my frame that I ended up making a few more to tape to my wall for an extra bit o’ luck! 

Check out the full video tutorial below to see how you can make your own DIY Feelin’ Lucky Stamped Shamrock Frame!

Supplies:

Step 1: Stamp numerous shamrocks using both green inks

Step 2: Use scissors to cut out each shamrock, making sure to leave a white border.

Step 3: Place the back of the frame on top of the white cardstock, trace around it, and cut it out.

Step 4: Use a Cricut cutting machine to cut out “Feelin’ Lucky”.  You’ll want it to be 4 inches wide.

Step 5: Place a piece of transfer tape on top of the vinyl, rub it with your finger, and slowly peel it off.  The vinyl design will come up with the transfer tape.

Step 6:  Lay the transfer tape on top of the cardstock, rub over it with your finger or a card, and slowly peel off the transfer tape.

Step 7:  Add a foam square to the back of a shamrock and place it on the cardstock.  Continue adding foam squares to the back of the shamrocks and layer them.  Alternate both green colors.

No matter your skill level, this DIY Feelin’ Lucky Stamped Shamrock Frame is the perfect décor piece to display in your home.  Take it down after St. Patrick’s Day, or leave it up all year round for a little bit of luck every day!

Make the bag as sweet as the treat with these playful DIY stamped Valentine’s Day treat bags!

I’m not sure how it happened, but Valentine’s Day has become one of my favorite holidays!  I love creating cute décor from heart tassel garland to festive pillows.  With my twins in pre-school I now get to send them with sweets and treats to pass out to their classmates during holidays.  I feel like I have been waiting to do this all my life!!!

With Christmas being officially over and Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I wanted to get a head start on the goody bags for my kids’ classmates.  I wanted to create something simple, yet cute.   When I saw the heart carved tree stamp from Rubberstamps.com. I wanted it to be the focal point of my treat bags since it’s so darn cute!  I also used their “Happy Valentine’s Day” stamps to add even more detail!  Check out the full video tutorial below to see how simple it is to make your own DIY stamped Valentine’s Day treat bags!

Supplies:

Step 1: Place the heart carved tree stamp on to the 4×4 acrylic block.

Step 2: Cover the stamp with brown pigment ink.

Step 3: Stamp the white treat bag.  Let the ink dry.

Step 4: Snip the inside of the heart on the treat bag and cut it out.

Step 5: Cut a ½” strip of gold glitter and pink cardstock.

Step 6: Cut both strips the width of the white treat bag.

Step 7: Add the “Happy Valentine’s Day” stamp to the 2X2 acrylic block, add black ink, and stamp the center of the pink strip of paper.

Step 8: Cut notches out of one end on both strips of paper.

Step 9: Peel off a small piece of double-sided tape and add it to the right side of the pink strip, peel off the liner, and place it on the gold strip so it’s at an angle.

Step 10: Add double-sided tape to the back of the gold strip, peel off the liner, and then add it the bottom of the white treat bag.

Step 11: Add a double-sided tape to the back of the pink strip, peel off the liner, and press it down on the treat bag.

Step 12: Add candy to the inside of a clear treat bag and place it inside of the white treat bag.

Step 13: Fold down the top of the treat bag and secure to the back with a piece of double-sided tape.

What’s great about this DIY stamped Valentine’s Day treat bag is you can add whatever you want to the inside.  You could add festive M&M’s like I did, or you could do a candy-free idea and add stickers or other small toys.  These treat bags are 100% customizable!

DIY “Believe” Framed Christmas Photo

Last year when I was out with my family, Evelyn spotted Santa in a store across the street from where we were walking. She wanted to go over and check things out. As we walked over, Santa saw us coming and came to the window. He knelt down to say “hi” to Evelyn. I was able to quickly grab my photo and capture a magical picture of the two of them.

When it comes to candy, I have a bit of a problem.  I’m obsessed with all things sweet and sugary!  I’ve never met a piece of candy I don’t like.  Since I’m obsessed with all candy, you better believe I was super pumped to find out there’s a day dedicated to celebrating candy in all of it’s forms.  National Candy Day falls 4 days after Halloween, which means the candy celebrations continues on! Yippee!

DIY State Love Wine Charms

I love hosting parties, but hate all of the extra cups that collect.  Why is it that people can never manage to keep track of their water bottles, cups, and wine glasses?!  It never fails that at the end of the night every room in my house becomes a cup/glass graveyard!

DIY You are my Sunshine Sign

Disclaimer – This post is in partnership with CraftCuts.  All opinions are 100% my own. 

If you’re looking to brighten up your room (and your day!), then this DIY custom “You are my sunshine” sign is for you!

I love adding colorful touches to rooms in my house.  Having pops of color brings so much joy and happiness to a room, even if it’s only a few décor items scattered alongside other neutral colors.  I decided to blend cheery colors together with an uplifting quote using custom letters and a circular wooden shape from CraftCuts!  Check out the tutorial below to see how you can add a little sunshine to any room in your home!

Supplies:

Step 1: Add hot glue to the 10” dowel rods and glue them around the circle, leaving space for the 4” dowels.

Step 2:  Add a coat of yellow spray paint to the circle and dowel rods.

Step 3:  Paint all of the 4” sized dowels with the orange acrylic paint.

Step 4:  When the paint is dry, hot glue the orange dowels rods in between all of the yellow dowels on the circle piece.

Step 5: Cut a long piece of painter’s tape and add the letters for you “you are my” to the top.  This will help keep the letters from shifting around.  Add a coat of white paint to the top.  Add a second coat of paint if needed.

Step 6: Add a coat of white acrylic paint to the word “sunshine”.  Add a second coat if needed.

Step 7:  Once the words are dry, figure out the placement for the quote on your circle.  Next add painter’s tape under “you are my”.  This will help get the letters straight. 

Step 8: Add multi-grip glue to the back of the letters and word to secure them to the wooden shape. 

Step 9: Add Multi-Grip to the back of “sunshine” and add it underneath “you are my”.

Step 8:  Cut a piece of twine 2 inches long, fold it in half, add a drop of glue to the top back of the circle, please the loose ends of the twine on top, and add another drop of glue on top of the bottom of the twine.

Add your DIY custom you are my sunshine sign to any room in your home for an instant pick-me-up!  It would also look great on a gallery wall, or as outdoor décor (as long as it has been properly sealed with a clear protectant!).
