Rustic Home Decor

This past weekend we had a bridal shower for my future daughter-in-law! They have chosen a rustic theme for their wedding so, naturally, the shower was all decked out in rustic style decor. I made a special little gift for them and it was all wrapped up in this pretty little package. The new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper was the perfect DSP to use for this shower. I mean, what can be more rustic looking than actual wood, right? 🙂

And of course, the gift was handcrafted with a variety of different rustic themed products from Stampin’ Up! I had so much fun creating this gift for them. It’s a little home decor piece that is personalized for the bride and groom. I was going to save it for their wedding but decided that I couldn’t wait! lol

Do you remember the herringbone pattern that I shared with you a few weeks ago! Well, that is the pattern I used to create the backdrop for this piece. The bride loved the gift! I really enjoy creating personalized gifts. This home decor piece is super simple to make too. You just need an alphabet stamp set with your favorite style of letters and some fun things to embellish it with. Oh, and you also need a frame. I actually used an old frame that I had lying around. Worked perfect! It will be a wonderful keepsake for them for years to come!

Valentine’s Day Gift Idea

valentine home decor projectValentine’s Day is about a month away! Yeah, I can’t’ believe it either! I figure I better get some project ideas out there for you now because it will be here before you know it! This particular project was actually inspired by my 2-year old grandson.  We were “crafting” together one day…actually he was just randomly gluing buttons on a piece of paper and having a blast!  Our crafting episode inspired me to create this adorable little home decor piece and it was a great way to use up some of the buttons that I had on hand!

To make this project, you will need a 5 x 7 picture frame. Cut a piece of your favorite designer paper that has a black and white pattern on it. For this project, I used one of the patterns from the Back to Black Designer Series Paper (DSP). Cut that piece to 5 x 7. Next, take one of the medium size heart framelits and cut out a black heart. Don’t worry…we will make it red. 🙂  Secure the black heart to the center of your DSP. Stamp some real red hearts around the outside of the black one as shown in the picture. Grab all of the red buttons you can find and randomly arrange them on the black heart. You can also stamp a little “love” sentiment in the center as shown or just fill up the heart with buttons. I ran out of buttons so I also added a few real red candy dots. Once you have a pattern you like, secure the buttons to the black heart using glue dots. For the finishing touch, add a white bow to the bottom of the heart and then put your masterpiece in the frame!  Enjoy!
