Song Lyric Wall Art / D.I.Y. Project

I can't pass these things up even though I already owned this particular design. I thought that I could maybe use it to make a fun D.I.Y., but my new rule is that all thrifts that I purchase with the intent of restyling need to get done right away. I have way too many half finished projects in my life. With that little bit of motivation I came up with a fun D.I.Y. to display some of my favorite song lyrcis in our newlywed home. Enjoy.... Here's how I did it... I displayed our piece in our bedroom, on Jeremy's side of the bed. A couple weeks ago, I found a paint-by-number at an unbeatable price. Spring Scrapbook Paper Tree. Hello fellow crafters!

Spring Scrapbook Paper Tree

Tristin and I were invited to be today's featured guest blogger over at Everyday Mom Ideas! We were thrilled with this wonderful opportunity, and wanted to share with the readers over there one of our trees from the collection we're currently doing. This second tree is very similar to the first one. I'm sorry! I promise, the next ones will be more diverse. (Since this is a guest post on a different blog, and the concept is similar to the first tree.. Thanks, Julia, for having us on your blog! Decorating Frames « In the Wabe. I had a bad morning and needed to make myself busy with something, so I went to the BX and bought a cinnamon roll, some cheap little frames, and a world map.

Decorating Frames « In the Wabe

The cinnamon roll was unrelated to this project but significantly improved my mood. I just tore strips of the map and arranged them on the frame with rubber cement. I’d still like to find something to help seal them but will have to look to see what’s available around here. Edit: I soon got my hands on Mod Podge, and it fit my needs perfectly as both a glue and a sealant! Â I’ve been making these for a while now, using a variety of papers and switching between glossy and matte glue. I tried a few different designs–the one in the front has a lot of water, the middle is mainly land, and the back is a good blend of both. Name the book (I make sure the photo had a few recognizable names)! I have the perfect photo to put in this frame! Edit: Since I first posted this, I’ve made even more frames. Love Cartography: Heart Maps. Glass Etching.

Have you ever done any glass etching?

Glass Etching

Well, neither had I before today. But wow. Such an easy, yet sweet little touch that you can add to any glass. Make it a kitsch stitch.
