Hello my dolls!
I’m so happy to bring you yet another DIY post. I’ve been loving making things myself, it just brings me such joy! I hope to be putting out two more in the upcoming weeks so stay tuned for that!
Let’s get started and let me show you what I’ve made!
Watch my DIY Farmhouse Decor video:
Farmhouse Burlap Basket
This one is by far the easiest and doesn’t require much.
Idea Source: measure & mix on Youtube
All you need is:
- Wire basket (dollar store)
- Burlap ribbon (dollar store)
- Hot glue gun
- Measure half of the wire basket around the outside (from handle to handle) and cut your burlap ribbon to that length. With your hot glue gun, slowly glue the edge of the burlap ribbon onto the basket. Doing it little by little will help you place the ribbon onto the basket more precisely before the hot glue dries up.
- Repeat on the other side (outside).
- Now we’re starting on the inside. You will be doing the same thing you did outside, but inside. Again, it’s best to measure half of the wire basket, because doing it all the way around will be a bit difficult considering the shape of the basket.
- Once you have the first ribbon layer all the way around, you will glue more ribbon, but make sure it overlaps! It’ll help the ribbon stick better instead of gluing it to the basket. This will also make it look like one whole piece.
- Keep gluing all the way to the bottom and you’re done!
I basically use this basket for my face towels because I have no where else to put them, and I like how it looks in the bathroom.
Picket Fence Inspired Spring Decor
This one is also pretty easy but more time consuming.
P.S. I keep forgetting to take better pics of this one so I will update the post when I get those photographed and edited.
This idea was loosely based on Monarch Mom DIY on Youtube
- Jumbo craft sticks (Walmart)
- White paint; I used acrylic (Michael’s)
- Hot glue gun
- Moss (dollar store)
- Flowers (dollar store)
- Scissors or wire cutters
- Twine (dollar store)
- Paint one side of a bunch of jumbo sticks with white paint, (I think I painted like 20). Let dry and paint the other side. (By the time I finished painting all of them in one side, the first ones were already dry and were ready for painting. NOTE: I painted two coats on each stick. Again not hard, just time consuming.)
- Align the sticks as wide as one jumbo stick (about 8). Place one painted stick horizontally and glue two sticks vertically onto it.
- Keep gluing the sticks vertically on the horizontal stick.
- Turn over the whole thing and glue two more horizontal sticks, flushing them to the one in the middle. This will serve as the base for the “garden”, and it will also provide more hold.
- Wrap a long piece of twine around bottom and top of the jumbo sticks and tie a knot at the back.
- Slowly and carefully, hot glue the moss onto the horizontal jumbo sticks in the middle.
- Using your scissors or wire cutters, cut flowers or leaves from your artificial bouquet and play around with their placement.
- If you like the arrangement, use your hot glue to stick them onto the moss.
- Write whatever phrase you’d like on to the white space if you feel it’s too plain.
- Cut a craft stick in half, stick each half onto the sticks on the back (edge) and glue down. Glue a piece of twine on both sides to make the “hanging” piece”
I had hung this on the back of one of my doors but it fell and I never put it back up, so now it stays on my wall for the time being.
I don’t have a tutorial of this on my video because it was something that didn’t take long.
- Various flowers (dollar store)
- Spanish moss (dollar store)
- Pot of your choosing (dollar store)
- Insert the whole moss into the flower pot to make sure it fits. It’s better if you keep it all in one piece. If you need to elevate the moss a bit, use shredded paper or newspaper if you have some. NOTE: The moss I used was great because I could spread it out, if needed.
- Start inserting your flowers or plants into the flower pot.
- Spread the flowers/plants apart to spruce it up.
- Add more moss inside the pot to hide the stems and..
Literally not hard at all. I’m no expert on flower arrangements so yeah it looks like it could use some work, but I didn’t want to make it look overdone. Just more simple and something that can hang out in the background lol.
I’m sorry I’m late with these DIYs. They were meant to be for Spring but I kind of procrastinated on this a bit but I’m glad it’s finally out. I do have two more coming which I’m more excited about to be honest.
