The Wonderful World of Pinterest- March 2014

This past month has just flown by! I am so looking forward to springtime, and warmer weather. I have not spent a lot of time on Pinterest this month since my sister was in town for spring break and vacation days we are currently using. I still was able to add a few pins here and there to some of my favorite boards. Here are my favorites for the month of March:

Favorite Vintage Finds of the Week- March 3rd

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! My sister’s pup Sadie came over for a sleepover with Beau. They had a great time! We took them to the dog park and the flea market. It was a beautiful weekend here! As some of you all know by now, I love all kinds of prints, and mash-ups of prints together. However, I am and always have been a polka dot kind of girl! It is my favorite print ever, even more so than gingham, which is a close second! This week I am happy to share a little collection of vintage polka dot finds!

Hello everyone! Welcome to day nine of my 12 Days of Handmade Gifts! Some of you know by now, I have a self proclaimed obsession with vintage ceramics, or as my dad calls them, tchotskies. They are coming out of the woodwork in my house, I have so many. Whenever I see a cute little vintage figure at the flea market, or the thrift store, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be coming home with me. Today I am going to show you how to make these really easy and fun little ring dishes with vintage ceramics.

Here’s What You Need:

*Teacup Saucer

*Vintage Ceramic Figurine or a cute figurine of your choice

*E-6000

Instructions:

IMG 3155 513x600 DIY Upcycled Vintage Tchotsky Ring Dishes

The first thing you need to do is gather your supplies. When shopping for a little figure, you want to look for one that has good features to hold your rings. Test it out. Cats with tails, animals with ears that are separated, or even little souvenirs like the Eiffel tower would be perfect! You can find teacup saucers easily at the thrift store, most of the time for about fifty cents a piece. Two of my saucers are vintage, and the floral one I found at Home Goods which is an overstock discount store in our area. Once you have everything picked it, it is really easy to make into a little ring dish! Apply a little E6000 to the bottom of your figurine. Then, glue it down to the center of your saucer. That’s it! This is like the easiest craft ever!

DSC 0193 627x600 DIY Upcycled Vintage Tchotsky Ring Dishes

I love these little ring holders! I really don’t know which one is my favorite. This diy is so fast and easy. You could make a batch for all the girls on your list in probably under half an hour. They can also be customized to fit the personality and style of who you are gifting it to. If your Aunt loves cats, make her one with a kitty. Your teenage daughter loves woodland critters? Make her one with a deer or a bunny? You can even make them out of toy figures too. I made one for myself using an Olivia the pig mini figurine I had because she is one of my favorite things ever! I stuck her onto a vintage atomic style saucer, and now she sits on my vanity. There are so many different options and combinations. You’ll have a blast just shopping for your supplies! I can’t wait to see what you guys make! I’ll be back tomorrow with another holiday gift idea. Until then…

Happy Crafting!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I know I usually post my vintage finds on Monday, but yesterday I was very under the weather. So today I am playing catch up. I will be sharing two diy tutorials later this evening which I think you guys are really going to like. One of my very favorite things to collect for the Holiday decor is Reindeer.

DIY Vintage Wrapping Paper Wrapped House Night Light

DSC 0309 599x600 DIY Vintage Wrapping Paper Wrapped House Night Light

DSC 0308 copy 523x600 DIY Vintage Wrapping Paper Wrapped House Night Light

Hi guys! Welcome to day four of my 12 Days of Christmas! Today I am going to share with how to make this fun little night-light. I love little Christmas houses, and am in the middle of making a whole little neighborhood of vintage retro style houses. A while back I found this paper mache house box at Michaels and picked it up thinking I’d use it for storage. The other day I discovered that one of my favorite Christmas night lights is broken. So I thought I would make this fun house box into a little night-light for the bedside table. This project was easy and fun! And, you only need a few supplies.

Here’s What You Need:

*Paper Mache House Box

*Heavy Duty Craft Knife or xacto

*Hot Glue gun and glue sticks

*Vintage Wrapping Paper

*Decoupage Medium in Matte

*Vintage Christmas card (optional)

*Craft Paint (I used Martha Stewart Paints- Pearl White for the roof, Satin White for priming and the interior, Satin Green for the front door, and Gloss Red for the windows)

*Martha Stewart Dot Cap for Paint

*Snowy Glitter (Diamond Dust)

*Yellow Cellophane (Like a gift basket bag)

*Battery Operated Candle

*Mini Bottle Brush Wreath

Instructions:

IMG 3055 683x600 DIY Vintage Wrapping Paper Wrapped House Night Light

 

The first thing you need to do is draw in the windows and the door. Cut out with a heavy-duty craft knife. The box is thick and hard to cut so be careful if you are using an xacto. Heat up your hot glue gun. Starting on the top of the roofline draw wavy lines with the hot glue. Make sure your glue lines match up at the sides of the roof and the front and back. When the glue is cool and hardened, paint over the glue on the roof with the pearl paint. You may need a couple of coats. Next, you need to do is prime your box. Paint the whole box white. Now you are ready to decoupage the house. Measure and cut pieces for each side of your house leaving a little extra for the top and bottom. Try to cut the pieces so your patterns will match well. Paint a thin layer of decoupage medium on the back side of your paper and the front side of the box. Lay the paper on the box and smooth out. Smooth top and bottom around the top and bottom of the box. Cut an x and glue the window pieces to the inside of the box. Now if you have any cute figures on a christmas card, cut them out and decoupage to the house where you want. Next, paint the front door and the windows. Cut pieces of the cellophane a little bigger than your windows. Glue two together then glue to the back side of the windows. Next outline the windows with the red gloss paint fitted with a dot cap. Draw in the glass panes as well and add a door knob. While your paint is drying, paint a layer of decoupage medium onto your roof and sprinkle with the snowy glitter. When your house is all dry, insert a battery operated candle inside the box and close the lid.

Favorite Vintage Finds of the Week- November 5th

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! The days are getting shorter and the weather is getting cooler here. It is time to break out the sweaters and jackets from the closet. Anyone who knows me will tell you, I am a total sucker for sweaters! I love them! I have mostly cardigans, which are my favorite, but I love all kinds! So, this week I thought I would share some of my favorite vintage sweaters with you all. This week has been a little crazy so far, and my time has been pulled in another direction this week, so I am posting a treasury widget from craftcult.com today instead of writing these all up separately. To see the item and the fantastic shop it came from click on the thumbnail and it will take you to that etsy page. You should totally go check out these fantastic shops, the whole lot this week is fantastic! I’ll be back next Monday with more fun vintage finds. Until then…

Happy Shopping!
