DIY Cabin Cozy Scrapwood Snowflake Sign

Christmas is quickly approaching  and even though I'm not in the Christmas Spirit this year, I've tried adding a little décor just for the kids so that it feels like it for them. Once again for the umpteenth time my husband has to work for Christmas, so after so many years, it sadly becomes just another day that my kids and I celebrate alone. We usually open up gifts a few days before, or on Christmas Eve morning and I love seeing the kids' face light up when they open gifts but it's just not the same. That's why this year I wanted some easy décor that I could quickly put away when it's all over. #BAHHUMBAG Don't worry, I'm excited for Jesus' birthday, just not to thrilled with spending another holiday alone. #FireWifeLife

I haven't made any little signs in forever so I thought I would whip up something easy. I rummaged through my scrap wood pile out back and came up with this little gem. I had 1/4 inch plywood scraps leftover from doing some shiplap along with some 1x2 inch strips of wood from building my coffee cart. Perfect for a small project. I also rummaged through my paint supplies and found some gray chalk paint from General Finishes called Limestone and red spray paint. Let me just say that this gray is my absolute favorite gray and no I'm not sponsored for saying that. I just love it that much! You can find the video on how I created the sign at the end of this post as well as some other silhouette projects! Don't worry, if you don't have a silhouette, any stencil will do! I'll be back to update my tutorial tomorrow morning. If I'm being completely honest, it's really late while I'm writing this and I'm really tired and I want to give you my best! See you in the morning for the step by step details!

Easy Fall + Thanksgiving Place Setting

Thanksgiving is just days away now. I can't believe how fast this year has flown by. Pretty soon I will be pulling out the Christmas décor, even though I'm honestly not in the Christmas spirit yet. It is still pretty warm here and they have already started playing  Christmas music 24/7 on the radio . Usually I am jumping for joy and pulling out all the garland and lights but for now I'm still enjoying my fall décor. So, today I am sharing with you a very simple Thanksgiving place setting that is very budget friendly.

Copper Striped Dollar Store Candles

Painters Tape
Tapered Candles from the Dollar Store
Copper Liquid Gilding paint
Small paint brush
Candle holders

STEP 1. Wrap a short piece of painters tape around the candle. I used 4 pieces of tape.

STEP 2. Place in candle holders.

STEP 3. Paint one coat of copper and let completely dry. It will be sticky! After the first coat is dry paint another coat, let dry and then paint the 3rd coat.

Let dry completely... then peel off the tape and you are done!
