Paint Stick Flag Tutorial

Posted on June 23, 2011 at 9:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Paint Stick Flag

Show your true stripes – and stars – with this easy-to-make Americana flag. Kids will love the hands-on techniques; Mom will love the price tag!

size: 7-5/8"x12"


• Wooden items: 4" star cut-out, Loew Cornell™ Woodsies™ Wood Slat, paint stir sticks, seven

• Sawtooth hanger, 1"


• DecoArt® Americana® Acrylic Paints: Country Red, Uniform Blue, Warm White, Burnt Umber, Black

• DecoArt® Americana® Gel Stain Medium

• Adhesives: craft glue, glue gun

Basic Supplies

ruler, pencil, paintbrush, palette, painter's tape, sanding block, soft cloth


1 Measure four stir sticks and tape off at the halfway point with painter's tape.

2 Paint left side of each taped stick Uniform Blue; let dry. Apply second coat, if needed; let dry. Remove tape.

3 Paint star and one remaining stir stick Warm White. Paint two remaining stir sticks Country Red. Finish painting two half-blue stir sticks Warm White and two Country Red. Let dry completely.

4 Heavily sand edges of star and each stir stick to remove some of the paint.

5 For an antique effect, as shown in second photo, mix Gel Stain Medium and Burnt Umber paint according to product directions. Apply to painted wooden pieces with a brush and allow to sit for a few minutes. The longer the stain remains on the wood, the darker the antiquing will be. Remove excess stain with a clean, dry cloth.

6 Center sawtooth hanger at one short end of wood slat; attach with hot glue gun.

7 To assemble flag, apply a generous layer of craft glue over front of wood slat. Line up painted stir sticks facedown on work surface, using photo as placement guide. Press glued side of wood slat facedown onto center of stir sticks. Weight with heavy book, if needed, and let dry completely.

8 Use craft glue to attach star to center of blue field; let dry.

Snow Vase Tutorial

Posted on January 1, 2011 at 5:39 PM Comments comments (0)

This tutorial may be a little late for season but it's still
snowing somewhere right now!

Even so, I absolutely love this project.  More than anything, I love that it's simple and effective when completed.  The pic I took of the ones I made came out pretty lousy so I borrowed from Living with Lindsay.  You can go there for the tutorial or just see the bottom of this post for all the pics I took during the process.

Here's What You Need:

Each item above {except for the Mod Podge} came right from
Dollar Tree and was $1.00!  And there was enough
Epsom salt and glitter to make many more.

Step One:
Grab a bin and pour enough Epsom salt to fill about 1/2" of the bin

Step Two:
Shake a preferred color of glitter in {optional} and shake around.

Step Three:
Wash your vase.  The Mod Podge mixture will adhere to clean items better.

Step Four:
Using the foam brush, apply a thick coat of Mod Podge to bottom half of vase.  {I messed up the first time by not putting enough of this so make sure you apply pretty thick.

Step Five:
Dip vase in bin and roll around.  You may not get a thick enough coat on the vase so, at this point you can use your hands to pick up a handful and sift the salt on the vase or pack it like snow.

Thank you to Living With Lindsay for the
inspiration for this tutorial!

Make a Snowflake

Make it Snow... Even in Florida!!

Better Homes & Gardens is featuring a Snowflake generator that you can make and send to your friends or post on Facebook. 
Here's a run through of how it works.

When you first open the site, you can click the "Get Started Now" button to create your own. or you can catch one that falls to view the previously posted snowflakes and read the messages they created with them.

They give you a "folded" piece of paper to cut with your mouse.  The more you cut, the more it changes.  If you can draw it with a mouse, it will show up times six on the snowflake... I warn you, it's addicting!

When you're done, it will first ask you to type your name, location and message {not shown} and then when posted, it will bring you to this screen so you can post it to Facebook or email it to your friends & family.

Finally, immediately after you click send {or No Thanks!}  it will bring you to this page to view your snowflake and read other posts.  It's really interesting to see what others have created. If you remember your snowflake number that they give you, you can look it up later at the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Just click on "Find a Flake".  My number is: 10034051 if you want to look it up.

After I created about four, I made one more so you can see how the message is displayed. Here's what mine said:

Here's my original... and my favorite!

Paper Pumpkin Display Tutorial

Michelle over at Alittletipsy.com has featured a very unique idea that is soooo easy and it only takes about 5 minutes! All she did was take a pumpkin shaped doilies that can be purchased at Dollartree and with a gluestick and green foiled-wire or ribbon, and made a nice little autumn centerpiece for next to nothing!...
That gives you a little extra to make that pumpkin dessert!

Head on over to her site to check out how her tutorial.
