Christmas Countdown

Hello y’all! We are gearing up for the holidays over here. I was in charge of making a Christmas Countdown for 50 people, so I knew it needed to be something cute, simple, and reflecting on the true meaning of Christmas. So, with the help of many wonderful family members, I busted them out. And we are providing the pages for you… for free. Boo-yah! Now, I typed them, then realized I didn’t love the order we originally had, so that’s why the dates are all over the place. However, the purpose of this is to cut out, so ultimately it doesn’t matter 😉

We printed ours on red and green paper in black and white, but it also looks so clean, fresh, and crisp in color on white. To keep all the pages together, we bought binder clips and just hole punched a circle in the top corner of each. Simple and easy. To package it up cute, I put it in a clear plastic party bag, tied with twine, and added a small ornament from the target dollar section. These would be so cute to give out as neighbor gifts, family gifts, or just to make for yourself too!

Pallet Pumpkin | DIY Tutorial

Happy fall y’all! Since fall is now here officially, we thought it would be fun to bring you a festive fall or Halloween easy craft!

This is so easy and the pictures explain it pretty well, so if you have a question on anything not covered, just leave a comment below!

Step One:

Pick your boards and lay them out. Stagger the edges to make a tiered shape.

Step Two:

Measure the distance between each tier level and mark off on the other side to cut. Our tiers varied from 1 inch to an inch and a half. Our longest middle board ended up being 21 inches, and was 18 inches tall, excluding the stem.

Step Three:

Paint with a base coat so when you want your actual color, it will be brighter and you won’t need to do as many coats.

Step Four:

Lay your boards face down and use a thin board to keep it all together, and then screw through each board to make sure it is secure.

Step Five:

Distress the pumpkin using sandpaper. We used 100 grit. I also had a little help with this step 😉

And finally, get that pumpkin hung up! I kept mine plain, but how cute would be to add a pattern to it? You could do chevron, stripes, polka dots, or even a jack-o-lantern face. The possibilities are endless! We’d love to hear if you make one!

Happy Halloween | DIY Banner

Hello everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your October! Afterall, October is such a fun month! So, it’s only the beginning of the month and it’s not too late to keep adding fun little items to your decor! With that being said, here is a fun “Happy Halloween” burlap banner. It’s cute, easy, and super cheap!

So all I did to make this easy and super cute banner was find a font I liked online and cut the letters out along with cutting out triangle shaped burlap.

Next, trace the letters onto the burlap with a sharpie.

Then, using a sponge brush, dab paint onto the letters, and once the paint was dry I added a glitter coat.

Once the paint has dried, hot glue your letters onto your banner and hang it up! So easy!
