#Family Wall Art – My new found love for Hashtags

Posted on by

#Family Wall Art- Scrabble Edition {www.homemadeinterest.com}

Hashtags are my new found love!  Before becoming a blogger, and not really knowing how helpful they were, I would get annoyed with the endless use of #this and #that.  Now, bring on the #everything and #everywhere.  I have been seeing a lot of projects with ampersand and thought to myself that hashtag will eventually take over the world (which it has), so why not embrace it by making my own #Family wall art sign.

#Family Wall Art Burlap Sign

We went to Home Depot and bought a piece of 2ft x 2ft foam insulation. We started by cutting the board to size. I used a knife since the blade on a box cutter wasn’t long enough.  Then I measured out a piece of burlap large enough to be able to wrap the board on all sides.  We used hot glue (is there anything this glue can’t but used for??) to attach the burlap to the foam board.  Note to self: if the glue is too HOT, it will MELT the board! Apply the glue to the burlap rather than the board and let the glue cool a few seconds before pressing it onto the board.

The picture is self explanatory. Just wrap and glue corner like you would when wrapping a gift.

#Family Wall Art - Stencil

Now on to the stencil. We cut the word #FAMILY out of contact paper using our Silhouette. For those of you with Silhouettes the cut settings used were: Speed 8, Thickness: 3 Blade: 1. We stuck the contact paper stencil on the burlap and we were ready to paint! Kat, who has way more patience for lightly dabbing on paint than I do, used a sponge to apply black paint. Put the paint on in thin layers rather than one thick coat and you will have less issues with the paint bleeding under the contact paper.

When the last coat of paint was done and it had dried for a few minutes we pulled the stencil off. #Art!

Since foam is so light it was really easy to hang on the wall. We used the sticky part of the command hook (minus the hook) and just stuck it up there. If you’re worried about command hooks not being strong enough to hold, don’t be! They are magical.  My #Family sign has be up for several weeks and hasn’t fallen.

Family Wall Art: Scrabble Edition

Posted on by

Family Wall Art: Scrabble Edition {www.homemadeinterest.com}

We’re so excited to be participating in our first Silhouette Challenge, hosted by the Silhouette Challenge Facebook Group! Make sure you check out all of the other great projects from this month’s challenge at the end of this post!!

You might have noticed here, here and here, that Melinda and I have been on a crusade against our bare walls. Currently, Melinda is working on a gallery wall in her living room and our latest edition to the wall is a piece of family wall art Scrabble-style. It was so simple to do and we both love the end result.

Family Wall Art: Scrabble Edition {www.homemadeinterest.com}

We started with 3×3 plywood cut outs from Woodworks Ltd. They were only 1/8” thick and we wanted something more substantial so we glued 3 cut outs together to give them more depth. The natural color of the wood pieces was a little too light so we watered down (I mean REALLY watered down) some brown paint and painted a thin coat on each tile. The color turned out perfectly.

Using our Silhouette we created a letter/number combination for each name, using the number that would be assigned to that letter tile in Scrabble. Here’s a link with all of the tile point values. Once the letters were ready to go we cut them out of black vinyl and used transfer paper to place them on the wood tiles.

Family Wall Art: Scrabble Edition {www.homemadeinterest.com}

We used hot glue to attach the tiles to one another and we had no issues with them breaking apart but, if you have any concerns, you can also put a thin piece of wood like a paint stir stick or a popsicle stick, behind the tiles and glue the tiles to that. It will give the tiles a little more stability.

To hang it on the wall we just used a few of the command hook stickers (no hook just the sticky part). So easy, sooo cute! Goodbye big blank wall! :)

Chalkboard Kitchen Printable – My Battle Against Blank Walls

Posted on by

Kitchen Printable {www.homemadeinterest.com}

I’m going to let you in on a little secret, I’m terrible at making decisions. Decorating in my house takes forever because I think every decision to death before I make it. Sometimes this isn’t a bad thing, it has kept me from making a lot of mistakes, but it has also left me with a lot of blank walls in my house. I can never figure out exactly how I want to hang things, or what things to hang, so I wind up doing nothing. I’ve had an idea for a gallery wall in my kitchen for over a year now and I haven’t done anything about it, until today :).

Kitchen Printable - Virginia Woolfe Quote {www.homemadeinterest.com}

I found a quote by Virginia Woolf, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” This quote spoke to me and I knew I wanted it in my kitchen. Since I’m always seeing chalkboard printables I decided to try creating one myself. Aren’t chalkboard fonts the best? I’m slightly addicted to them, I’m not going to tell you how many I have downloaded!

It isn’t hung on my wall yet, seriously people if it takes me this long to come up with the artwork can you imagine how long it will take me to pick out a frame! When I have a few more pieces for the gallery wall I’ll make sure you are the first ones to know ;). In the meantime enjoy this printable in your own kitchen.

All Aboard the Choo Choo Train Birthday Party

Posted on by

Train Birthday Party {www.homemadeinterest.com}

Last year my son Sawyer was obsessed with trains so, when he turned 3, we had a train birthday party.   I Googled  train birthday parties in my local area and was lucky enough to find a nearby park that had a miniature train that everyone could ride on. It was perfect.

Train Birthday Party {www.homemadeinterest.com}
Once the location was decided my Pinterest search for everything and anything train began. Kat and I used our eCraft (a paper cutting machine like a Cricuit or Silhouette) to make a train banner using scrapbook paper.  We kept it simple and fun, layering lots of different scrapbook paper colors and patterns together. We used 4 shapes each in a different pattern and/or color to create the train; a large train shape, a big circle for the number to go on, a small circle for the back wheel, and the number 3. We glued them all together, punched holes in the top and and strung them together with a piece of twine.

Train Birthday Party {www.homemadeinterest.com}
For table center pieces we used aluminum cans with the labels peeled off. At A.C. Moore I found wooden sticks with circle, square and train  shapes. The circles and squares made the perfect railroad signs with the help of a little paint and I covered the trains in scrapbook paper.  I also found some larger wooden train shapes and letters to spell out “Sawyer” at A.C. Moore. These pieces were thicker and had wheels. We covered them in scrapbook paper also and set them up like a train running down the length of the tables.

For the food table we wanted to add some height so we used cardboard boxes from our many deliveries from Amazon, wrapped them with different wrapping papers and added embellishments. We created two of these, each with three-tiers, one for each end of the food table.

Since we were having the party outdoors at the park we kept the food basic; hot dogs, bbq, pasta salad, fruit, chips and cookies. I added some train-themed touches by cutting the watermelon and cookies into train shapes using a cookie cutter and serving the chips in brown paper bags that we had printed a picture of a train on. That was our only fail for the day. Since it had rained that morning it was damp out and that made the chips taste stale and the grease soaked from the potato chips soaked through the bags which wasn’t a pleasant sight. The bags were adorable and I would definitely use them again i would just make sure whatever I put in them in non-greasy.

Train Birthday Party {www.homemadeinterest.com}

For the party favors I bundled a train engineer hat, bandana and train whistle together with a piece of twine. Before we headed over to ride the train every child grabbed one. They were so cute with their hats and bandanas and we got some great group pictures.

Train Birthday Party {www.homemadeinterest.com}

Despite worries about the weather on the day of the party we thought that the park was a very good venue for a large group of young children. The wide open space and playground area gave them an opportunity to burn off energy which makes every parent happy, and the miniature train was a hit. All-in-all a successful party!

9 Sizzling Bedroom Decor Ideas

Posted on by

Today we’re so excited to have our first guest blogger Alice from Yorkshire Linen with some decor tips for creating a beautiful bedroom.

9 Sizzling Bedroom Decor Ideas

Give your bedroom some bold style this season by picking using one or two of the following bedroom decor ideas to maximise the impact of your décor.

Lavish White

Sometimes using bright bold colours in décor can make the overall effect of the décor become too intense and gloomy: the total opposite of what is desired! Literally lighten up this unwanted effect by using plenty of white, cream or other similarly pale colours with your chosen bright and bold shade. Rather than diluting the effect of your strong colour, as might be expected, the lighter notes stop the strongest colour from overwhelming the décor.

Pop of Uniqueness

Introduce pops of unusual colour into your décor (orange and turquoise are particular favourites with designers and decorators this year) to enliven the décor and showcase the other, perhaps more traditional, décor colours. If you are unsure of which unusual colours to introduce, why not opt for a vibrant work of art which is likely to create a different effect depending on where in the room it is placed and on which colours it is set against.

Cheerful Chests!

You do not have to remain tied to the furniture shades supplied by the manufacturer. Pop into a D-I-Y store and have a chat about which paint is best for achieving the desired effect and make sure that you undertake the work slowly and carefully. (make sure that you buy enough
paint for the whole job, mix it all at once – if mixing is needed - and apply each coat carefully, sanding the item before you begin, use a primer, apply at least two coats of the final colour, allow each coat to dry completely, and lightly sand it before applying the final coat.) In
this way you can paint any piece of furniture to emphasise and enhance your colour scheme; you do not have to stick with natural wood colours or even the manufacturer’s range of shades.

Dramatic White Duvet covers

Bold does not necessarily mean bright. If you want a dramatic and bold décor, yet abhor bright colours and gaudy colour schemes, you can use white instead: crisp and clean and very noticeable, perfect to showcase your bedroom features. You will quickly learn that you do not have to use masses of colour to achieve a bold look. If you are looking for amicable duvet covers, I would suggest exploring Yorkshire Linen.

Monochrome Wonder

Demur yet bold, monochrome is great for causing this décor paradox. For a bedroom that looks understated and restrained but is still lively and eye catching, this vivid contrast between black and white is the perfect solution.

Metallic Elegance

Similarly, the addition of significant metallic points can enhance and dramatise your bedroom décor admirably. You can opt for something functional like a large wall-clock or something frivolous and purely ornamental depending on your personal tastes. Vintage and classy wall-clocks can be viewed at John Lewis.

Jaunty Nautical

Add a marine theme to your bedroom by using clear, bright blue against a cream or white background with mere touches of red and yellow. This colour scheme can be teamed with seashells, seaweed and other marine features or simply be allowed to speak for itself.

 Retro Bright

While few people want to return entirely to the 60s or 70s (although I daresay there are a few of you out there!) the occasional nod to retro décor can be an effective tool in your interior design arsenal. Pop a retro-inspired cushion on your bed, or hang a pop-art poster on your wall and see how this adds texture to your bedroom décor.

 

Go Back to Nature

While it may not seem obvious, the use of plants and flowers (whether real, fake or merely fabric designs) can add a certain something to the décor of any room, and the bedroom is no exception. Invest in a sturdy pot plant or buy fresh flowers once or twice a week.

 Love all of these tips, it makes me want to start re-decorating my own bedroom! Thanks to Alice for sharing with us, don’t forget to stop by Yorkshire Linen and see what else she has been up to.

Simple Butterfly Summer Wreath

Posted on by

Butterfly Summer Wreath {www.homemadeinterest.com}

Last Saturday was the official first day of summer. Am I the only one who feels like summer is already flying by? Maybe it is because I spend all week sitting in an office wishing I was outside enjoying the sunshine :). By the time the weekend gets here I usually have a million project ideas I’m tossing around in my head and so little time to get them all done! After finishing my summer wood blocks last week I was in the summer-decorating groove and I knew I wanted to make a summer wreath for my front door, and I didn’t want the usual sunshine and flowers, I wanted to make a butterfly summer wreath.

Usually I make my own SVG images to use with my Silhouette but I decided to take a look at Etsy to see what was already out there and I found this butterfly SVG file. It was exactly what I needed so I saved myself a little time and bought it.

Butterfly Summer Wreath Tutorial

Using my Silhouette I cut butterflies in 4 different shapes and sizes out of patterned card stock. Then I folded each butterfly to make them look like they had just landed on the wreath.  I wrapped my wreath form in ombre yellow yarn and placed butterflies going from the center-point on the bottom, up one side,  to the center-point on the top. The butterflies start large and slowly fade to the smallest size as they reach the top. I created a simple “Hello Summer” banner in GIMP and hot glued it to a piece of twine, then draped it across the center of the summer wreath. This was my favorite kind of project, everything was attached with hot glue! :)

I love how it turned out and now I feel like I’ve officially welcomed summer! If you want to make your own summer wreath you can download the “Hello Summer” banner printable below.

Personalized Handprint Wall Art

Posted on by

I have a lot of empty walls in my house and I’m on a mission to fill them. I found this cute personalized handprint wall art idea from Sunshine Homestead and loved it so, I set to work making one for my family, including my furry kids.

Personalized Family Handprint Plank

To get started I went to Home Depot and searched through their scrap wood section until I found this weathered gray 2×8 board for only $2. Score!  I had Home Depot cut it to the size I needed so I wouldn’t have to pull out the saw when I got home.

Once I got it home I used a sandpaper block to lightly sand it to get any splinters and dirt off. Other than that  I didn’t have to do much to prep the wood since I wanted a rustic look.  Wood for the family handprint plank.

Since there is no practice run with paint I decided to trace everyone’s handprint (except the dogs’) on construction paper, and cut it out, to see how they would fit on the board.

Once I was sure of placement it was time for the fun part! I used white acrylic paint, applied a thin layer all over the palms of the kids and the dogs’ pads.  You may need assistance if you have larger pets or smaller children.  Gently press the hand, or paw, down on the plank and done! The dogs weren’t thrilled, but my son loved getting to paint his hand and help with a project :).

Family Handprint Plank

Kat used the Silhouette Cameo to cut out everyone’s name using white vinyl and I put each name under the handprint (or pawprint) it belonged to.

Vinyl names on handpring plank.

I hung it on a narrow wall in my kitchen near our dinner table and I love seeing it there. The kids are growing up so fast and I thought this was a perfect way to capture a moment. The whole project took less than 2 hours (most of that time was wrangling kids and dogs) and now I have a great piece of personalized handprint wall art that includes everyone in the family.

Red, White and Blue Tie-Dye Tablecloth

Posted on by

Tie Dye Tablecloth tutorial pinterest {www.homemadeinterest.com}

If you saw our post on Wednesday you might have noticed the red, white and blue tie-dyed picnic blanket the kids were picnicking on. Tie-dye is so big this year and Melinda has been chomping at the bit to do a tie-dye project. So, with picnic season here we thought a tablecloth would be perfect for our first try! A tablecloth is great because it can be used for so many things; a tablecloth (inside or outside), a picnic blanket, or a backdrop for photos. If you don’t have a white tablecloth go check out a local thrift store to find a cheap one, or buy a white sheet. My white tablecloths don’t last more than a year or two before they get a stain on them that just won’t come out, so this was a great way for me to give one new life.

We bought a tie-dye kit at Michaels that came with everything we needed; rubber bands, dyes, bottles, instructions for various tie-dye patterns, and gloves. I’d recommend buying yourself some nicer gloves since several of my fingers ended up blue and red.

Tie Dye Tablecloth tutorial {www.homemadeinterest.com}

For the tablecloth we did the standard spiral pattern. We laid the fabric out flat and pinched the middle, then twisted it in a circle to create a flat spiral. We used the rubber bands to create our segments and filled each segment with color. We wanted to go with red, white and blue so we just alternated red and blue dye. Once we saturated one side we flipped it over and dyed the opposite side. When we felt like we had enough dye on the fabric we put the whole thing in a plastic bag where it would need to sit for 8 hours while the dye set.

Melinda was super-excited so we also threw in a white t-shirt and a onesie for the kids.

Tie Dye Onesie tutorial {www.homemadeinterest.com}

For the onesie we created a bullseye pattern. We laid the fabric out flat then made a circle with one hand, placing it in the center of the fabric. Then I pulled the fabric up through my hand. We used the rubber bands to create segments along the fabric. This time we added a teal dye in so we alternated between red, blue and teal. Again we sealed it up in a plastic bag to let the dye set for 8 hours.

Tie Dye T-shirt tutorial {www.homemadeinterest.com}

We created stripes on the t-shirt. We laid the fabic out flat and folded it into pleats, like a fan, then created segments down the fabric with the rubber bands. The tablecloth took a lot of dye so, at this point we were starting to run low on red and blue, which meant the t-shirt ended up with a lot more teal, but  it worked.

After 8 hours, I think Melinda timed it to the second she was so excited to see how everything came out, Melinda rinsed each item under cold water until the water ran clear. She was worried about how difficult it would be to get the fabric thoroughly rinsed but it was simple and took less than 5 minutes for each piece. Once everything was rinsed it was all thrown in the wash together, washed in hot water, then dried.

The next day I came over and we let the kids have a picnic outside on their new red, white and blue tie-dyed picnic blanket. We even took a little time to tack it up to the fence and get so cute pictures of Sawyer all ready for the 4th of July.

The project was really fun and Melinda already has a thousand ideas on what we should tie-dye next!
