More Witchy Wisdom

More Witchy WisdomWitchy Wisdom

It’s that time of year again. Time to craft in preparation for fall craft shows.

These witchy signs have been a big hit the last couple of years so I headed out to the woodpile to find wood that had potential for making more. I’ve made these with pallet boards, wood chair seats and cupboard doors, but this time I used scraps from my brother’s new fence.

DSCF4876He had quite a few pieces that were already cut to the same size, so I didn’t have much cutting to get them prepared.

DSCF4877I try to buy gallons of paint colors that I use a lot of. I’ve used this same orange paint for about three years. Sigh…it’s almost gone so I’ll need to be buying more soon.

DSCF4902The stencil was made using my Cricut. It’s the same one I have used since the first sign I made. It’s just card stock, but it has held up well.

DSCF4944I tried something new this year. I had some black raffia in my stash so I used it for the witch brooms. In the past I have used the natural raffia. I really like them in black.

DSCF4953The last touch was attaching green raffia to the rusty wire handle.

Enjoy!

Shabby-Antiqued Cupboard

7-DSCF4396Shabby-Antiqued Cupboard

1-DSCF4040This cupboard was a find my youngest son brought home to me.

2-DSCF4042It had fabulous bones, but it was very blah. Just perfect for a restyle.

3-DSCF4230I started with a layer of light green paint, then continued with several coats of white.

4-DSCF4384I sanded it into yummy, shabby chic submission. I knew I would be sanded it after painting, but I had no idea if the green paint would be visible in the end. It was, but you have to look very, very close.

5-DSCF4385Not satisfied with the amount of green actually showing, I painted a green medallion on top and to the front of each door.

6-DSCF4391I completed the cupboard with an antiqued finish.

Enjoy!

Not Lucky…Blessed

6-DSCF4176Not Lucky…Blessed

I came across several different versions of this on Pinterest and just had to make my own.

I had a few horseshoes laying around and my brother just replaced his fence. He gifted me with the old wood. Score!

2-DSCF4162After making stencils with my Cricut I was ready to rock and roll.

3-DSCF4163Quick and simple! I love these kind of projects.

7-DSCF4180After a little stenciling, I attached the shoes with E6000. To secure them really well, I drilled holes through the nail holes in the shoes and used wire to hold them in place.

5-DSCF4174A couple of sawtooth hangers on the back and these gems were done.

Enjoy!

Words of Wisdom Window Signs

3-DSCF3505Words of Wisdom Window Signs

I’ve been enjoying the windows that Middle Kid gifted me with a couple of weeks ago.

I saw a similar sign to this one on an HGTV show (my new addiction-Fixer Upper) and have been itching to replicate it on a window.

1-DSCF3496I painted the frames black so they will really “pop” on a wall.

2-DSCF3493It took me a bit of time to size, cut, re-size and re-cut the words for stencils on my Cricut until I had a fit that worked with the window, but I finally nailed it.

3-DSCF3505Just like the frame, the lettering was done using black paint. I love, love, love the way it turned out!

I now have two of these posted on local (to me) Facebook selling pages. If you live close (Winfield, Ks.)  and are interested, message me.

Enjoy!

Scrap Wood Easter Signs

5-DSCF3428Easter Eggs and Bunny Trail Signs

We have been enjoying really nice weather so I took advantage of warmer days to work on some wood projects. Since the weather turned a bit cooler and drizzly I thought I should finally get this posted before the holiday comes and goes. 😉

I didn’t get pics of the steps like I should have…I kinda got carried away until the photo op was gone.

3-DSCF3419The St. Patrick’s Day shamrock signs did so well I decided to go ahead and make quite a few of the Easter signs. That may or may not have been a great idea. I’ve had them on local Facebook selling pages for about a week and even though they are selling, it has been slow going. Hmm…only time will tell. Oh well, if they don’t sell, then I guess I’ll be gifting friends, family and neighbors. :)

Like the shamrock signs, I used scrap pallet wood.

1-DSCF3411My Cricut came in handy once again for creating my stencils.

2-DSCF3420Unfortunately I didn’t have a bunny on any of my cartridges so I had to hunt through my pattern books to find the shape I was envisioning, then I cut that stencil by hand.

4-DSCF3424The eggs were requested by a previous customer. I thought they turned out pretty cute. I have already sold out of the pink eggs.

My favorite is the bunny trail sign.

Enjoy!
