I’ve really been showing a lot of love to my entryway this fall and this Dollar Tree diy is one of the last two crafts I made for the space. I’m one of those people who can’t help but fill every empty corner in my house and this stacked pumpkin decor is filling the void by my front door!Read More
I love fall most of all! Ok, not really. I’m a summer girl all the way! What I do love is decorating for fall. I look forward to the changing colors of foliage, and especially the large variety of color choices for fall decor!Read More
I’m starting on a couple of projects for my front porch, and I wanted to make a new spring/summer wreath. Since I’d been wanting to try my hand at a rag wreath I decided to create one completely from Dollar Tree products! I’m soo excited about how this project turned out and can’t wait to get it hung on our door!Read More
I’m working on putting together a gallery wall in my entryway and I want to add a couple of décor pieces that aren’t square or rectangular shapes. I came across these wood stems at Dollar Tree and knew right away that I would use them to create this decorative heart.Read More
- Word ornaments (Dollar Tree)
- Wood (I repurposed mine from a raised garden bed) or rectangular wood blocks
- Wood glue
Step 1: Measure each word ornament and add 1/4 inch on each side of the word. This will be the measurement for the wood block.
Step 2: Cut the wood to size. This wood was left over from a raised garden bed I took apart to use for one of my summer décor projects.
Step 3: Sand any rough edges until smooth.
Step 4: Paint each wood block. I used a dry brush technique to give it the same weathered appearance as the ornaments.
Step 5: Apply wood glue to the bottom of the ornament and attach to wood block. Allow to dry for 24 hours.
- The wood glue directions state to clamp the pieces. But, I found that holding the word in place for a couple of minutes was enough to hold it upright so the glue could set.
When the glue was fully set, I added these raised snowflake stickers using hot glue. This covers the holes where I removed the twine used to hang the ornament.
And here they are on my floating shelves I recently got from Ikea.
