Dinosaur Decor Pennant Wall Art

Today I’m sharing more Dinosaur Decor that I made for my little boys room. I this project over at the Darice Blog last month and I’m finally getting around to post it on my blog.  I’ve made several fun dinosaur themed projects for my boys room over the past couple months, but this one was by far the easiest!

I found this great wooden Pennant Wall Hanging on the Darice blog and thought that would be perfect to create a new project with for the boys room.

If dinosaur theme is not your thing, then you can customize it any way you want by using any of the Darice wood shapes.

So let’s get started!

Dinosaur Decor Supplies Needed:

Dinosaur Decor Pennant Wall Art

Step 1 – Stain Pennant

I love using this Gel Stain by DecoArt, I get the stained look that I’m going for without all the mess.  Paint it on your piece, let dry 15 minutes and your all set! No staining your hands or having to wear gloves.  Perfect!

Dinosaur Decor Pennant Wall Art

I used a regular paint brush and only needed one coat of paint.

Step 2 – Paint Dinosaur

Let’s paint our dinosaur piece. Since my boys have a dinosaur theme room I went with one of the main colors in the room.  Orange, but you can pick whatever you like.  Paint your dinosaur piece. One coat was all I used.

This is a perfect step to have the kids get involved if they want to help paint the dinosaur.

Step 3 – Add your Glue

Once the paint has dried add a little glue to the back and firmly place it on your pennant wall hanging.  Let dry 20 minutes, then your ready to hang on the wall!

Finishing Touches

For some extra pieces in the room, I painted some wood beads the same color scheme of the room to make a cute wood bead garland. It will make a nice accent drapping over a shelf or table lamp.

I also found this “Rawr” saying.  Add a touch of paint to personalize it to the room colors and were all set!

Now we have three great pieces to add to my boys dinosaur themed bedroom and we made them all in no time at all!

Looking for another creative way to add some decor to your kids dinosaur themed room?? Make sure to check out my Dinosaur Terrarium I made last year for the blog!

As always thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/how-to-crafts/terra-cotta-pot-diy-lighthouse-garden-project/ Fri, 19 Apr 2019 13:25:47 +0000 https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/?post_type=craft&p=11365 DIY-Clay-Pot-Lighthouse-15
It's never too early to start working on outdoor garden projects for your yard. I made this DIY Lighthouse with DecoArt's Outdoor Living Paints.
]]>
DIY-Clay-Pot-Lighthouse-15

Hello friends, as you all know I’m apart of the core blogger team for DecoArt.  Every month we have a fun challenge to create a project using a DecoArt product.  This month our challenge was using any of the new 2oz Americana Decor Outdoor Living Paints for an outdoor project. This outdoor paint has alway been in an 8oz jar, but they just released the new 2oz size for smaller projects.

For my challenge I decided to work on a project I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now…  A Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse!

I’ve alway thought these projects were so cute and easy to do, and guess what??  It totally was! This looks perfect sitting in my front flower bed, and it matches the Hose Stand I made last year using the Outdoor Living Paint as well.

Supplies Needed for Your DIY Lighthouse Project:

  • Clay Pots in various sizes
  • Solar Light
  • E6000 Glue
  • Paint Brush
  • Americana Decor Outdoor Living 2oz – Picket Fence
  • Americana Decor Outdoor Living 2oz – Poolside

Getting Started

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

Here are a couple of the Outdoor Living Paint Colors.

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

Step 1 – Paint Pots White

I started off painting all my pots white.  I needed a total of three coat, letting each coat dry 5 minutes.

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

I only needed to use one bottle of this paint, to paint all three pots!

Step 2 – Add Your Blue Accent Color

Now let’s add our accent color to the lighthouse. I went around the bottom of each pot with the Poolside color.  I didn’t tape it off, just freehanded it.

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

I needed a total of two coats for this step.  This paint dries really fast, so by the time I’m finished with the last pot, I’m can go over the first pot again.

Step 3 – Glue Pots together

Now let’s stick our pots together.  I pulled out my “handy dandy” E6000 glue to connect the pots. I added a little glue on the inside edge of the pots and firmly placed them together.  For this step I let the pots dry overnight.

Step 4 – Add your Light

I found a solar light at Wal-Mart to place at the top of the Lighthouse.  I used a small hack saw to cut the bottom of the solar light off, so that it would sit flush on the top of the lighthouse.  I added a little E6000 glue to this part as well, and let sit overnight.

Step 5 – Add Windows

For the window I decided to change this step last minute.  I was originally going to use the black Iron gate paint.  But I cut out my window shape in black vinyl to use as a stencil. Then I decided to just stick with the black vinyl as my window.  That vinyl won’t go anywhere.

But you can always paint in your window as well.  Both options will work.

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

Finishing Touches

Now let’s take is baby outside and display it!

Terra Cotta Pot DIY Lighthouse Garden Project

I’m very excited with how this DIY Lighthouse turned out, I really wanted to keep it simple with the details.  But you can get pretty detailed with a project like this as well. I pinned some great ideas on my Pinterest page.

I made this Foam Lighthouses a couple years ago and really wanted to have similar looks.

As always thanks for stopping by!

Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/how-to-crafts/craft-room-pegboard-organization-idea/ Wed, 03 Apr 2019 16:05:32 +0000 https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/?post_type=craft&p=11241 Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea
Craft room organization is very important to me and my life style. I created the Pegboard organization project to help get my craft supplies organized.
]]>
Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

Let’s talk Pegboard Organization! Pegboard projects are super popular right now, just search Pinterest and you’ll see. We use them in so many ways, so today I wanted to show you how to use this 12×12 pegboard to help organize your craft supplies. I originally made this over at the Darice Blog last month.

I found this awesome Pegboard on the Darice site. If you search the term pegboard, then a ton of different styles will POP up.

So let’s get started!

Pegboard Organization Supplies Needed:

DIY Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

I really like the natural look of the wood already, I just wanted to add a little POP of color and embellishment to this pegboard.

Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

So I pulled out some fun colors that I already have throughout my craft room.

Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

I really wanted to create a cross stitch look with this pegboard.  So I pulled out a thin paint brush to be able to create that look the best.

Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

Since this is a 12×12 pegboard I wanted the pattern to be simple, but if you plan on grouping multiple pegboards together you can get more detailed with your design.

Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

I laid out my shelves to see where exactly I wanted the design to go.

Craft Room Pegboard Organization Idea

Now that is a fun and simple design to make!

Once your paint has dried you can add your wooden dowels.  I bought an extra pack of dowels so that I can hang some more items on the bottom, like my paint brushes and scissors.

I only added a couple bottles of paint for the photos, but you can add a lot more on each shelf.

I hope this project can inspire you to get some of your craft supplies organized!  If you’re looking for another craft room organization project, then check out my Farmhouse Art Caddy I made back in the summer for my craft room. It still get’s used everyday!

I think this Craft Paint Storage will fit in perfectly with the Pegboard too, don’t you?!

Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/how-to-crafts/fabulous-wal-mart-shoe-makeover/ https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/how-to-crafts/fabulous-wal-mart-shoe-makeover/#respond Fri, 22 Mar 2019 13:59:33 +0000 https://www.craftsbycourtney.com/?post_type=craft&p=11299 Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover
I love a makeover project, but it's usually for the home. Today I'm sharing a shoe makeover for a simple DIY fashion piece. I had this shoe makeover done in no time.

Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover

Good morning everyone! I’m so excited to share this Shoe Makeover with you! This is a project I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now, especially during the holidays.  I just never had time. Sooo here it goes.

I originally planned on doing this project on a pair of heels, but I found these leopard shoes in the clearance section at Wal-Mart ($3.00). I’ve bought several pairs of these Wal-Mart shoes over the years and I just love them.  So I thought why not take them to the next level and give them a cute chic makeover.

Let’s get started!

Shoe Makeover Supplies Needed:

  • Shoes
  • Jewelry Wire Cutters
  • Krazy Glue or E600 Glue
  • Clip on Earring
  • Jewelry Making Pendant

Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover

Step 1 – Find Shoe

Like I said I found these shoes at Wal-Mart, they pretty much have this style shoe all the time.  I’ve gotten several different patterns in this style, but you can grab a shoe you already have or go buy a new pair.  These shoes cost about $5.98.

Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover

Step 2 – Pick out Pendant

Find your Pendant.  Since I’m a contributor over at the Darice blog I found this pendant and many more styles of their site.  But you can grab some at any craft store in your area.

Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover

Step 3 – Cut Excess off Pendant

Since this pendant is usually used to make jewelry I had to cut the little hooks off with a wire cutter.Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover

Step 4 – Glue Pendant to Earring Clip

Now it’s time to add your glue, I had some Krazy glue on hand to use for this project.

Fabulous Wal-Mart Shoe Makeover

I dabbed a little Krazy glue on the back of the pendant and placed the earring clip on top.  I waited two minutes to let it dry fully, then I went around the edges with more Krazy glue.

Step 5 – Add Your Clip On

Once everything has dried fully you can add it to your shoes!

DIY Color Block Wall Art

Hello friends, today I wanted to share something a little different then I usually do on my blog.  I’ve never attempted a color block project before so I really wanted to give that a try.  I think this laser cut heart I got from Darice is the perfect opportunity to try it on.

I originally made this project over on the Darice blog for Valentines, but I think this is a project I can keep up all your long. I grabbed some of my favorite DecoArt colors and I was ready to get started!

Color Block Wall Art Supplies Needed:

DIY Color Block Wall Art

I rounded up some of my favorite paint colors for this project.

DIY Color Block Wall Art

Step 1. To start this craft off I grabbed some of my “handy dandy” washi tape to tape my heart off and create my color blocked look.

DIY Color Block Wall Art

Before I got started I made sure to decided how I wanted to create my lines. Then I got started painting away.  Let each side dry fully before applying your next coat of paint.  I did a total of two coats of paint for each section.

Create a DIY Color Block Wall Art

Step 2. Reposition your tape and create your next color block area.  Again, make sure your paint has dried before doing this step.

YAY, it looks so great.  This is my first attempt at color blocking and I’m really diggin it!

Create a DIY Color Block Wall Art

Step 3. For this next step I really wanted to frame in the heart and use the solid heart for another project. Create kind of a modern farmhouse style heart frame.  So I went through my paint stash and found another Valentine-y color to match my color scheme.

I love this shadow box, I’ve used it for so many projects.  All I had to do was paint the entire frame white, and once the paint dried I added my color border.  Boom done!

Create a DIY Color Block Wall Art

Step 4. Finally add a touch of hot glue to the back of the heart and firmly place it in your frame.

Create a DIY Color Block Wall Art

You can display it on a mantle like I did or add some commend strips to the back and hang on the wall.  I use command strips for EVERYTHING!! Love’em.

As always thanks for stopping by. This is such a colorful project and a little different then my coastal decor I usually do on the blog.  This fits in perfectly for Spring!

How to make a DIY Heart Succulent Wreath

Hello friends, today on the blog I’m sharing how to make a simple DIY Heart Succulent Wreath.  I originally did this as a Valentines project over at the Darice Blog. I do love decorating the house for Valentines, but I wanted to make a wreath that I was able to keep up all year long and not look too Valentine-y in the house.

I’ve been wanting to make a heart succulent wreath for awhile now, especially after I made my Clay Pot Succulent wreath last year.   That was such a popular post on my site, so I decided to make another succulent wreath.

Succulent projects are still on trend right now with home decor, so I like to add new succulents projects to the house as often as I can.  You can’t have too many succulents right?!?

Let’s get started!

Heart Succulent Wreath Supplies:

How to make a DIY Heart Succulent Wreath

Step 1 – Add Wire

When I started this first step I just added the moss in the wire wreath, I then realized the moss would not stay in place easily.  So I pulled out my “handy dandy” floral wire and wrapped it around the wreath.  It worked great!

How to make a DIY Heart Succulent Wreath

Step 2 – Add Your Moss

Next let’s add our moss into the wreath.  This step is SUPER simple, I just started adding the moss into the wire wreath.  When we add our succulents into the wreath that will help keep the moss in place.

How to make a DIY Heart Succulent Wreath

Look how great that is!  I just need to make a heart shaped moss wreath next, it’s so pretty!

How to make a DIY Heart Succulent Wreath

Step 3 – Succulent Time!

Now the fun part….. Let’s add our SUCCULENTS!

How to make a DIY Heart Succulent Wreath

I laid out my succulents first to see what spacing was needed.

How to make a DIY Heart Succulent Wreath

I wrapped the floral wire around the succulents, I made sure to leave enough floral wire so that once I insert the succulents I can start wrapping the wire around the wreath.  This will help keep the succulent and moss in place as well.

Step 4 – Add Your Rope

Finally, I added a little red jute to the back to hang the wreath up.  I think the red is a great Valentine POP of color needed.

Now we’re ready to hang our Heart Wreath UP!

Hello friends, I hope you’re week is going well.  Today I’m sharing a DIY Pizza Craft using DecoArt’s new Galaxy Glitter. I’ve been so excited to use this glitter once I heard it was being released! I LOVE using glitter, and the best part this glitter doesn’t get all over the place!

As you all know I’m apart of the core blogger team for DecoArt.  Every month we have a fun challenge to create a project using a DecoArt product.  This month our challenge was using any of the new Galaxy Glitter Paints.

After I saw these wooden pizza cutouts I thought they would make a perfect (extra sparkly) Pizza craft using the Galaxy Glitter.  This would be a fun kids craft to do with the kids during the Summer or if your having a pizza party.

DIY Pizza Craft Supplies Needed:

DIY Pizza Craft with DecoArt Galaxy Glitter

Let’s get started!

DIY Pizza Craft with DecoArt Galaxy Glitter

Step 1 –  Paint Wooden Cutouts

Pick out your paint colors first, I just used basic acrylic paints for this project.

DIY Pizza Craft with DecoArt Galaxy Glitter

I didn’t have the perfect brown for the crust, so I had to mix two colors.

Finally I used a pink for the pepperonis! Only one coat was needed for each section!

DIY Pizza Craft with DecoArt Galaxy Glitter

Step 2 – Add Glitter Paint

Now it’s time to add our glitter!!  Woohoo!

DIY Pizza Craft with DecoArt Galaxy Glitter

For each section I did a total of three coats, but the more coats you add the more Glitter effect you’ll get.  Make sure to let each coat dry for at least 10 minutes.

DIY Pizza Craft with DecoArt Galaxy Glitter

Here is DecoArts Pinterest Board for more Galaxy Glitter Projects.

Step 3 – Make Pizza Sign (Optional)

Now this is an optional step you can make if you like.  I made this sign to go with my wooden pizza cutouts using my Silhouette Cameo.  You can hot glue the pizza’s to the sign or just lay them around a party table, if your having a pizza party!

You can even add it to the kids bedroom or play room.  Pizza’s, taco’s and even hot dogs are popular decor now if you can believe it.

DIY Pizza Craft with DecoArt Galaxy Glitter

I painted my wooden board, added my phrase with vinyl and that’s it!

I really liked the phrases “You’ve stolen a pizza my heart” or “Hey Homeslice” as well.

Finishing Touches

See how cute these glitter pizza’s look!

I ended up adding two more coats of Glitter with the last two picture for a total of 5 coats.

OK, so back to this project…remember those pretty paper straw Christmas tree ornaments I made for Simple as That? Turns out everyone loved ’em and she wanted a new kids craft for Valentine’s Day.

I had just the idea! A foldable paper straw easel. It would be the perfect craft takeaway for a kids Valentine’s birthday party. Don’t you think?

Create an Easy Valentine Kids Craft with Pom Poms - A perfect wall art project!

Sharing a new Valentine Kids Craft with you today, that I made over at Darie blog.

I’m always trying to come up with new craft projects to do with the kids for the holidays. Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I thought we would get started with a fun valentine craft for kids or even tweens to do.

I love working on holiday crafts with my boys.  They are getting a little older and their crafting styles has changed, but I still like to pull out projects like this to do with them.  If you don’t have a wood sign then use some cardstock, that’s what I did with my 5 year old.  But my 9 year old really liked using the wood sign.  I think he felt like he was doing a big boy project.

This is a fun project you can put the date on the back and pull out every year to decorate with! I love projects like that.
