Favorite Vintage Finds of the Week- April 13th

Happy Monday everyone! Spring is definitely here. Everything is budding and we are starting to see the pollen swoop in. Everything has a yellow top coat to it at the moment. Even the sky has a bit of a yellow haze. Although I think the pollen is icky, I refuse to let it get me down. So, this week my finds are all going to be inspired by the color yellow. Not the dirty yellow that has been plaguing our area from all the pine trees, but the beautiful sunshine yellow of spring.  Here are my top swoon worthy picks for this week:

Vintage Wallpaper Covered Easy Marquee Arrow

10 DSC 1463 Vintage Wallpaper Covered Easy Marquee Arrow

03 DSC 1533 Vintage Wallpaper Covered Easy Marquee Arrow

04 DSC 1527 Vintage Wallpaper Covered Easy Marquee Arrow

A few weeks ago I was at Michel’s and I saw these fantastic marquee letters from Heidi Swapp. I thought they were so cute, and when I saw the one shaped like an arrow I just had to get it. These come as a kit with the chipboard letter, a template, a strand of battery-powered lights, and some clear bulb covers. They come in white so you get to decorate them however you like. There are all kinds of embellishments and tapes, papers, etc. in the line. I just bought the kit and some aqua bulb covers. This is what I used for mine:

Supplies:

*1 Heidi Swapp Arrow Marquee

*1 Package of Aqua Bulb Covers

*Vintage Wallpaper Scrap

*Martha Stewart Metallic Craft Paint- Gold

*Xacto Knife and Self Healing Mat

*Mod Podge or Glue of your choice

*2 Triple A Batteries

Here’s how I made mine:

First, I painted my arrow with my gold paint and let it dry thoroughly. I used the template that came with the kit and traced it on the wrong side of my wall paper. I then cut out my arrow with my knife. For the holes, I cut each hole as an “x” so the bulb cover could push through. I am not very neat with a knife so I did not even attempt to cut the circles out normally. Cutting them in an x worked fine for me. Then I glued my wallpaper to the inside of my arrow by painting a layer of mod podge on the back side of the wallpaper and smoothing the wallpaper onto the board. I made sure it was nice and smooth and let it dry. Then I pushed the aqua bulb covers into the holes in the arrow. I then pushed the lights up into the bulb covers and added the batteries.

I really love my little arrow! It is a great addition to my craft room, and a good reminder to keep moving forward! This was such an easy and fun weeknight craft! I would definitely recommend picking one of these fun marquees up next time you are at Michael’s and giving one a try too! Have any of you guys made one of these yourself yet? I’d love to see yours too! I’ll be back a little later this week to share another fun diy with you all. Until then…

Favorite Vintage Finds of the Week- March 2nd

Happy Monday everyone! Can you believe it’s March already? I am so looking forward to spring time, longer days, and warmer weather! It’s time to start seeing some lovely color again. One of my favorite things about spring is that it is when we see a change from the warm neutrals of fall and winter to the soft and bright shades of spring and summer. One of my favorite color hues ever has got to be minty greens and blues! I love mint! Vintage mint is even better! So, this week I thought I’d share some of my favorite minty green finds with you all from Etsy’s wonderful vintage shops. Enjoy:

DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

08 DSC 1212 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

06 DSC 1218 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

04 DSC 1222 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

02 DSC 1225 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card LampshadeA while back I made a lamp shade out of old photo slides. It continues to be one of my favorite lamps ever! Back when I made it, I thought it would be a lot of fun to use the same technique using playing cards. I collect vintage playing cards. I love to use them when wrapping gifts, or sometimes I may frame one. The artwork on them captivates me! This lampshade is pretty simple to make and it only takes a few supplies. I made mine in a little over an hour while I was watching tv with the hubby. It may take longer or not as much time depending on the size lampshade you have. Here’s how I made mine:

Here’s What You Need:

*Vintage Playing Cards (You can find some great ones on Etsy Here)

*Old Lampshade

*1/8″ hole punch

*Ruler and Pencil

*Large Jump rings

*Jewelry Pliers

Instructions:

10 DSC 1158 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

The first thing you need to do is measure your circumference of your lamp shade and measure your cards and decide how many rows and columns you need. Mine fit three rows of 10 cards. Lay your cards out in a design that you like. Then stack them by row.

11 DSC 1159 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

Find the middle of your side lengths and top and bottom. Mark in about an 1/8th to a 1/4 inch in the middle of each side.

12 DSC 1160 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

Punch a hole in each of your marks on your card.

13 DSC 1161 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

Then use the first card as a template to mark all your other cards. Then punch out the holes on all the rest of your marked cards.

14 DSC 1162 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

 

Now you are ready to start joining your cards. Open up a jump ring and load one of your cards on it at the side hole. Then add another card at the other side hole and close your jump ring. You want to make sure your cards end up facing the same way when laid flat. Then add another card to the side of the first two, and so on until you have your first horizontal row.

15 DSC 1163 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade 16 DSC 1164 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

Make your other rows. Then very carefully join them together matching up the bottom holes from the top row to the top holes on the bottom row. Join all the rows together.

09 DSC 1165 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

Next, strip your lampshade of the fabric and plastic so all you have left is the rings. You can use both rings if the shade was a cylinder, or you can use just the top ring if the shade was tapered. Very carefully join your cards at the top to the top ring of your shade with the jump rings. Once you get it on at the top join the cards together at the sides where the ends meet. To finish, add your lamp shade to your lamp and enjoy.

03 DSC 1224 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

05 DSC 1221 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

01 DSC 1226 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card LampshadeI LOVE my new lamp! The whole thing is thrifted, which makes me super happy! The lamp shade and lamp I picked up at the thrift store near me. The playing cards I picked up here and there, and got a bunch on Etsy as well. This lampshade was really simple to make and I really loved laying out my cards to patterns I liked. The finished lamp is sitting on my vintage tv in my living room and I think it is perfect there! I hope some of you will give this one a try sometime. I think you’d love it too! I’ll be back soon with another fun DIY. Until then…

I tell you what, I love them all! I know I say that a lot, but I would be such a hoarder if I had lots of money and a tiny waist! Do you have a favorite this week? I hope you all enjoy browsing through these wonderful Etsy vintage shops as much as I did! I’ll be back next week with more vintage fun. Until then…

Happy Shopping!
