Have you ever wondered how to flock a pre-lit Christmas tree? My pre-lit tree has been with me for 10 years, now. It has been stuffed and crammed and bent in all sorts of ways throughout that time, and the only wear and tear that it has displayed has been the burning out of the lights.
Holidays and Seasonal
I thought that this week, I would show you how to make wooden stars from scrap wood. Wooden stars are the perfect accent piece for bookshelves because you can use them any time of the year. And since we are using scrap wood to make them, you can make one for every holiday or season.
This year I am joining up with Remodelaholic and 21 other bloggers for the Remodelaholic Creative Christmas Challenge! And as my contribution to the challenge, I have created a reversible interchangeable DIY easel.
To challenge myself, I wanted to make something that a lot of people want, but add a spin to it – hence the reversible/interchangeable part. However, I didn’t stop there, I decided to also make this with no power tools. Yes, you heard me right! Absolutely no power tools.
This year, I have been making a lot of my own Christmas decorations. I wanted to have a good mix of neutral farmhouse decorations to go with my champaign gold theme. In particular, I wanted to find some wooden stars in a neutral finish. Well naturally, I am not likely to purchase something that I can make with things from my scrap wood bin. As a result, I am able to share with you how to make farmhouse style wooden stars!
This is Halloween. This is Halloween. Halloween, Halloween, Hall-o-ween. (lol) Now that I have made that song stick in your head, it is probably a good time to introduce the topic for this post – my favorite pumpkin carving ideas for Halloween. I don’t like anything too difficult. After all, I am not a master food carver. So, to make up for my lack of carving skills, I try to go for unique – like Mr. No Eyes, here.
