Thankful Wood Decor Kit  


Here's an easy Thanksgiving craft for you or your kids! This little kit has everything you need for your project. But feel free to add some embellishments or sparkle to it. I was going for simple and rustic with mine, since time is of the essence with two toddlers these days. I'm all about the quick home projects ha!



Here's everything included in the kit:

-Square Pine W/Baltic Birch Center Frame - 8"x8"
-Thankful Crafter's Workshop 6"X6" Template
-Three 1" Width Foam Brushes
-Squash Blossom Crafter's Acrylic All-Purpose 2oz Paint
-Evergreen Americana Acrylic 2oz Paint
-Burnt Umber Americana Acrylic 2oz Paint





Step 1) Lay your stencil on top of the frame and center it. Place a few pieces of tape on the corners to hold it down.

Step 2) Start painting the words on your stencil using light dabbing motions. You can go over it a couple times to get your desired look, but don't use too much paint at once or else it may seep through the stencil. I used Burnt Umber for thankful & blessed, and the Squash Blossom for grateful.

Step 3) Paint your leaves the same way, dabbing in light layers. I used the Evergreen paint. You can of course mix and match these colors however you want!

Step 4) Carefully undo the tape and pull the stencil up. You want the paint to have dried a little, but not all the way. Otherwise you'll have a hard time getting it up.




Step 5) Paint along the edge of the frame. You may need another layer or two depending on your preference. I kept mine to one layer so I could see the wood still. 

And there you have it! Easy peasy home decor. I love this stencil and the reminder to be grateful. I am brainstorming what I can use it on next!

Thanks for following along, I hope you have fun with this kit!

Craft Room Tour  


Hello to all my Cherry Fans! 

I have a very fun post for you today. Back in mid-June I started the process of converting an extra bedroom upstairs into a proper scrap room.

I am a very simple girl. I don't like a lot of clutter, I like to keep things simple. I think the biggest thing about me is that I love eclectic, antique pieces. If I can repurpose, reuse some things... shop my attic as it were... that's my jam. 

I got myself some fun organization and decor pieces for my room from A Cherry On Top.




Here are the links to the items I got to add that little extra functional "something" to my space:




And here is a process video:

Wood Plaque - DIY Home Decor  


Even if you are a beginner crafter, you can make your own home décor with just a few products. This photo plaque makes a lovely wall hanging for your home or for a gift! Create a shabby chic look with these products: a wooden heart, Prima Flowers and a patterned paper from the Georgia Blue collection, 3D Matte Gel, Inka Gold, and KaiserCraft wood flourishes.  I also added in a photo, title, and white acrylic paint from my stash. 

(The heart plaque is out of stock, but here are other wood plaques you could use!)




To begin, I traced the wooden heart onto the paper, cut it out, and then adhered it to the heart with the 3D Matte Gel.  I applied another coat of 3D Matte Gel on top of the paper to seal it.  I painted the wood flourishes white with basic craft acrylic paint.


I then used my finger to apply Inka Gold all around the outside edge of the heart, allowing it to overlap onto the edges of the heart for a distressed look. Be sure to apply the Inka Gold liberally to cover the unfinished look on the edges. 


The wood flourishes are attached using the 3D Matte Gel, followed by some gold foil die cut leaves and the Prima Flowers.  I set out the flowers into a shape I liked first, then used the 3D Matte Gel to adhere them into place.



To finish off this project, I matted a photo with the remainder of the Prima paper, then adhered it to the plaque with the 3D Matte Gel and then added a title and a few gold glitter hearts tucked into the sides.  A bit of gold ink for splatter was the finishing touch! 



I love how this project turned out and hope you will give it a try!
