How to make Plush Velvet Pumpkins Who else has a major crush on those Plush Velvet Pumpkins floating around blogland? Me Me Me! I had this in my head since last year, and was finally able to make my own Plush Velvet Pumpkins this weekend. I couldn’t believe how easy they were to make, once I had all the supplies. Supplies needed: Velvet fabric (I found mine on eBay for cheap) scissors thread needle pen ~also *shown below* *vines or stems from real pumpkins *glue sticks & glue gun *stuffing *beans *Lay your fabric out & draw with your pen various size circles. Now thread your needle & watch this video. I’m not a video pro, so be kind. Now it’s time to stuff your pumpkins. Yep, I used pinto beans & stuffing. Now for the glue. You will need a very small amount of glue. Let me stop right here & say getting these stems are probably the hardest part of the supplies needed for these pumpkins. Just kidding. And when you’re done with the glue, you’ll probably have to play around with your fabric some so the pleats will look even.

Take the Side Street: Mercury Glass - a side by side paint comparison Hi, friends! I wanted to briefly address something I've had quite a few emails and comments about: the necessity of the Krylon Looking Glass spray paint in my faux mercury glass technique. It's pretty darn necessary. To illustrate this we'll have a head-to-head battle of reflective fabulosity between my current paint boyfriend, Krylon Looking Glass paint... ...and a much less expensive spray paint with a lid that's equally as shiny, Krylon Original Chrome: Ahem. My thoughts: MEH. Exhibit B, the same chrome paint sprayed on the outside of the glass (cup!)... My thoughts: Much better, definitely has some chrome-y shine to it, but no reflective qualities. Exhibit C, the Looking Glass paint (left) along side the chrome paint on the outside of the cup (right). My thoughts: Um, hello gorgeous! In closing, here's a photo of the faux mercury glass using the chrome paint: And a photo of the technique using Looking Glass paint: Wondering where to find the Looking Glass paint?

Garden Balls So when I was at my mom’s house a while back, the kids and I decided to to a project for Nana. My mom loves to garden, so we thought a garden project would be perfect for her. At Michael’s craft store I got some Styrofoam balls, grout, glue, stones, and various sized flat backed glass pieces. Next we filled in all the blank spots with stones, we tried to use only flat stones, or we would squish any high points into the Styrofoam ball if needed. After waiting 24 hours we grouted the balls with black grout made from a powdered mix, we made it rather thick so that it really stayed in place in the whole ball and just rubbed it in with our hands. I thought my Mom would hide the balls amongst her plants, but instead she stuck them front and center by her front door. The biggest ball was the one I made, and the other 2 are the kids. The grout makes them waterproof, so they will last just fine in the elements, and they are fairly light weight since they have a foam core!

Giant Picture - tutorial! I posted awhile an image that showed off the giant picture I made for my girls’ room – finally, the tutorial is here! It was so cheap – around $13 (that’s $8 for the print, and another $5 worth of an $11 foam board because you won’t need to use the whole board….) UPDATE Sept 2012: – – I LOVE this project so much that I made another one for my Dining Room – and this time I mounted it on plywood. Get details and a tutorial for mounting on plywood at this link: Giant Picture for Cheap, take 2 First, I saw on IAmMommaHearMeRoar that you could make big prints at office stores (Office Max, Office Depot) for cheap – just ask for the “Engineer’s Print”. Awesome. So here we go, on to the tutorial- – Giant Picture Supplies –Print in desired size ( I talk about that on down) –Foam Board in desired size (I used a 4×8 sheet, but these 20×30 ones look great too) —Spray Glue (that’s the link to the one I used) Giant Picture Tutorial Step 1: The Picture Recap: Step 1: The Picture Step 2: The Foam Board

Furniture Painting Tutorial and Tips! « The Cerniks Over that past year, I have tackled several painting projects. Some have gone well…and other terribly wrong. I spent so much time online searching for tutorials and trying what each recommended. We have finally mastered our technique and I wanted to share what we find the best. P.S. As newlyweds and new home owners, we have an empty house that needs A LOT of furniture. 4 steps and you are done! Step 1. Every piece of furniture must be prepped. We needed to get rid of the pre-loving on our tabletop, so I sanded it with our orbital sander. For pieces with deep ruts or dents, I suggest Elmers wood filler with a little sanding after it dries. If you have a piece that doesn’t require sanding (or if you just don’t want to), give the furniture a good cleaning with a TSP product. Step 2. Priming is very important…don’t skip it! We have tried several different primers, even spray can primers and 2-in-1 paint and primer. Everything can go wrong at this step…so listen carefully! Step 3. Step 4.

Out-of-Season, In-Demand: Tutorial If you are here from Pinterest, I'm so glad to have you here at Capital B! This little blog is what it is, to some degree, thanks to this stunning little wreath... It's easy to see why, eh? There is something about it that really is just stunning! When my friend and I made these wreaths originally, we were just wanting to spend the afternoon making something cute. If you might be more interested in purchasing one instead, please email me through the button in my sidebar. Ok, lets make it already! That crumpled baggie there is what is left of the exact wreath that I made originally... truth be told, it got split to pieces just a few days after I hung it on the door! I love taking pictures of stacks of things- just makes me smile for some silly reason. :) Ok, so take your sheets of felt- I got mine and all of the supplies for this project at Michaels- and cut them into squares about 2"x2". Instead, I got a box of straight pins and wow! See what I mean about "just keep going!"

The Quaint Cottage: DIY Copy Cat Nesting End Table - Part 2 During the week, I finished it with a weathered finish. And you can find that link here. So, now I finished the smaller of the two tables. Here is the finished set. You might notice I tweaked the color of the smaller table. For some reason, I didn't want them to be too matchy matchy. This little table is such a simple project. Cut four cross boards. And cut and install the top. Cut all the pieces, nailed together... Filled holes and sanded. Painted (without primer) and let dry overnight. Used the stain to glaze. And here it is with it's larger friend. Thank you for your kind words on the finish. Take care, Karen Link parties - & & & & Aging is so Distressing – Techniques for Antiquing Furniture Well, despite the fact that I am starting to feel my age, this post is actually about achieving that well worn, loved, aged and antique look on furniture and decor items. Aren’t these layers of paint, scratches and wear marks art to your eyes? Nothing shows character like chipping paint and multiple revealed layers on metal. Weathered paint worn thin and rubbed off. or paint splotches on an old ladder. And you can’t forget rust, love that beautiful brown patina! I have been experimenting with several techniques to add age to “newer” pieces of furniture. Throwing the chain in: These are a few of my favorite distressing tools: Throwing a chain at wood gives you those elliptical dents. Sanding through the years: The easiest way to add some age and expose layers of paint is to pull out a power sander. A table that was previously painted white received a beachy blue layer of paint on top of the white. Darker wood showing through adds instant age. It is important to use a old shaggy brush. Wipe on…

t-shirt pom poms Learn how to turn old t-shirts into pom poms! T-shirt Pom Poms are so much more durable than tissue paper ones. And I think they look loads better! got an old tee or two {or 20!} that you don’t wear anymore? Supplies t-shirts, 1 per pom pomscissorscardboard use round objects to trace circles onto cardboard to make 2 templates like those shown above. i used a roll of tape and my camera lens cap…. the diameter of the outer circle is 6.5″ and the diameter of the inner circle is 2.5″. you can play around with different template sizes to get different sized pom poms. cut your t-shirt into 1/2″ strips. i only used from the arm pits down on each shirt. . take one strip and one template and place strips as shown close to the inner circle. sandwich the strip by putting the other template on top. take a fabric strip and place on cardboard with the end even with the outer edge. continue winding the strips around the template until you reach the other side. Warning: this next step is messy. trust me.
