PUMP"CANS" GALORE MADE FROM MY CRAFT STASH!
Hi there so happy you stopped by to see my shabby "Something from nothing" Pump"Cans". I just love making something from nothing! How about you? Are you the type to spend a fortune at the local craft store or use the resources that you have on hand? Don't get me wrong I spend at the craft store as well, stencils, paints materials, glue sticks etc......But today this craft can be made from things around the house.
These are my tin can Pumpcans! A craft easy as pie and the little ones can help too!
This is Mo, he insisted on being in this photo shoot.
One things for sure I have all my ducks Pumpcans in a row!
This is all the supplies you will need for this craft, old big or little cans or even plastic containers,elastic bands, cording , material or even old clothes, I used Mr. Sweet Teas Nike tee he never wore because he didn't want to look like a pumpkin. Paper bags and paint if you like. I made some orange , the kids in the house can't accept white or any other color but orange.
The procedure is simple cut enough material place can in center and just bunch the material and tie tight with rubber band. Cut some bag for the stem and just wrap around the bunched up material and rubber band with the paper bag using wet hands , brown paper works best that way for molding. Cut some leaves out , you can trace your childs hand for the leaves. Then just hot glue the leave on.
I took some green cording and sprayed it with a bit of hairspray and wound it on a wooden spoon so the vine would look curled. You can add a face or not.
I made this pumpkin with décor in mind.
Hope I have inspired you to maybe get your family together and make some of these Pump "Cans"! Thanks so much it has been wonderful having you!
Welcome brrrrrrr! its cold here in S. W. Florida and everywhere for that matter hope you are as warm as can be. This winter I wanted to go with a winters farm theme. I crafted a sign my imaginary WinterCrest Farm and all the farm items to go with it . I painted things I had been saving when I conjured up this idea months ago.
So my kids thought I was crazy saving the Mrs. Butterworths plastic bottles but I gave them a coat of black chalk paint and added the price seemed fitting because the farm sign says pure maple syrup.
White lights and a few baron branches to give the winter glow
This little ceramic piggy bank also got a lick of paint
I added my vintage wooden breadbox filled with raffia and some blue and white dishware
A simple rag garland
So this mantle display did not cost me any money just stuff I was saving and some paint and an old piece of wood !
Well I have been absent from the blogger world for some time , reason being I'm just too darn busy reading all the other wonderful blogs and their inspiration keeps me crafting and building and getting into all kinds of creative trouble....But I have created a very vintage looking backsplash for nearly nothing. I scanned through my mind repeatedly for a unique backsplash that would not break the bank yet it had to be smashing looking. Low and behold after a thorough first take my idea was "born".
All you need for this project is Aluminum foil, a stencil of your choice, white glue, paint for highlighting, water based sealant if you choose to.A Flat surface for working, a soft cloth and plenty of patience.
hhSo, what do you think? you like the look? Now lets get started. The process is as follows: Place your stencil on a flat surface place your piece of tin foil on top of the stencil, take your very soft cloth and gently rub the foil and you will get the imprint of the sten…
Hi there welcome! Hope everyone is enjoying the day. Lets talk Shiplap for a bit, I was thinking that Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper was maybe just a tiny bit over doing it with her shiplap but let me tell you she has introduced a wonderful way to explode your home with vintage style and beauty her excitement is fully understood now.....thank you Joanna for introducing me anyway to such a smashing wall finish.
So this is something I wanted to try for a bit , I have a huge wall in the kitchen that I cant really remedy meaning everything I do there I really am not happy with until now that is........people all you need is a paintbrush measuring tool lots of masking tape, dark paint and light paint and you can achieve the "shiplap look". Lets take a look
ok so this is just a flat black painted wall and you do need a dark base color or if you prefer use a light base color and dark on top but the most important trick to all this is CONTRAST For this Faux shiplap application …
