Since we've moved into our house I have talked about making an "M" wall being that "M" is our last initial. Ever since my husband made and gave me a Sea Shell "M" for Christmas, I have been collecting M's and recently decided to make a few. The Black & Gold Dotted Monogramed Letter is very easy to make and looks really nice once hung on the wall!


Supplies:

  • Wood Letter
  • Black Paint (spray paint or acrylic paint)
  • Gold Paint Pen
  • Hanger if your letter doesn't come with one

They sell black wooden letters at craft stores so you can spend a few more bucks on a black letter if you don't feel like painting. I took this "M" off of an old craft and decided to revamp it for our Monogrammed "M" Wall. This "M" was originally painted pink so I decided to paint over it to make it look nicer.

How To: 


1. Paint you wood letter. Let Dry. 
I used black spray paint but you can hand paint your letter with acrylic paint or buy a black wooden letter.



2. Using a gold paint pen, start in the bottom or top corner of your letter and begin randomly adding dots. Make the dots different sizes. Continue dotting the letter until you are satisfied. Let Dry.

I dotted both the corners of my "M". You can cover your whole letter with dots or do as I did.

3. Add a Hanger if your letter doesn't come with one attached. I hot glued two soda tabs to the back of my "M" so I could hang it. You can use whatever type of hanger you like.

4. Hang your new Black & Gold Dotted Monogramed Letter on the wall and you're done!

The Black & Gold Dotted Monogramed Letter is very easy to make, cheap, and gives off a fancy appeal. I didn't have to pay anything because I already had all the supplies so my "M" was essentially free but if you have to buy the supplies, the paint pen will be your biggest cost. The Black & Gold Dotted Monogramed Letter makes a nice addition to any monogramed wall, the pictures don't do it justice. The Black & Gold Dotted Monogramed Letter would make a great addition to any monogramed letter wall, nursery, girl's room, wedding shower decoration, etc. You can also use any color variation for your dotted letter if you don't like the black and gold, the combinations are endless!

We recently added a new member to our growing family so I had to make a Christmas decoration that included our newest addition. I love Christmas decorations, especially snowman decorations so I decided to make a snowman family. I came up with the idea browsing through wood Christmas decorations on Pinterest. We have a ton of wood scrap pieces in our garage so I new it would be an easy and cheap craft.


Supplies:


  • Wood Blocks - one for each member in your family (sanded)
  • Long Wood piece - the length of all your wood blocks next to each other (sanded)
  • Red & White Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Black, Red, Orange & White/Silver Paint Pens
  • Wood Sealer - I used Mod Podge
  • Screws and Drill



How To:


1.  Cut your wood pieces to the size you want them to be and sand them to avoid any rough or sharp pieces. 

You will need:
   - One wood piece for each member in your family; in my case, I had five. I made our wood pieces different sizes to represent the different ages/heights in our family.
   - One long wood piece to use as a base. The base needs to be at least the length of all the snowman wood pieces next to each other.

2. Paint the wood pieces that are going to be your snowman white and let dry.

3. Paint your base red and let dry.


4. Using the black and orange paint pens, draw faces on the white wood blocks to make them look like snowman. Make your faces different to resemble the people in your family. Use the red paint pen to personalize each snowman with your families names at the bottom of the the wood blocks.

5. Using a white or silver paint pen, personalize the red base. I wrote "The Martini Family" and drew snowflakes on it. You can personalize it with your last name, a Christmas saying or just leave it blank.

6. Once everything is dry, line your snowman up in the order you want them to be and begin to screw them into the base. I put two screws in each snowman to make sure they were secure and would last. I screwed the screws up through the bottom of the base into each snowman. 

7. Seal your wood with a wood sealer. I used Mod Podge since it is going to be displayed inside but you can use any kind of sealer you want. Let Dry. 

8. Set your new Personalized Wood Snowman Family out for everyone to see!

The Personalized Wood Snowman Family Decor is a pretty easy and cheap Christmas craft to make. I did not need to buy anything to make our Snowman Family because I already had all of the supplies. This craft is super cute and one of a kind being that no two will ever be the same. Make your Snowman Family your own by drawing faces to resemble those in your family, add hats or buttons, change of the colors, etc. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, Merry Christmas and Happy Crafting!!!

Christmas Ornament Wreath Tutorial

Last Christmas I decided we needed more Christmas decorations for our house. I wanted to make an Ornament Wreath to hang on our front door so I waited until the day after Christmas and made a trip to Walmart. If you don't know this already, Walmart marks all their holiday items to 50% off the day after the holiday so it's the best time to go shopping for holiday items for the next year if you are on a budget. I managed to buy all the supplies for the Ornament Wreath for $10 max. Prices will vary depending on where you purchase your supplies, how many ornaments you buy, what kind you buy and add ons such as bows, ribbon, etc... If budget isn't a problem, the Dollar Tree has 12 packs of ornaments for a $1 they just don't have as big of a selection when it comes to colors or you can just spend the extra money and buy the ornaments at regular price at almost any store.


Supplies:

  • 60-80 Plastic Ornaments - I bought a set of small red ornaments to help fill in gaps
  • Wire Clothes Hanger
  • Bow OR Ribbon to create your own Bow
  • Pliers - Optional
  • Hot Glue Gun - Optional, hot glue ornaments back to their tops if they fall off 

* The "Merry Christmas" hanger and bow pictured were not used.





How To:


1. Bend your wire hanger into a circular shape.


2. Untwist the top of the wire hanger. You can do this by hand or use the pliers.

3. String your ornaments onto the wire hanger one by one. Rotate colors and twisting the ornaments as you go. This makes the ornaments go in different directions thus fitting more ornaments on your wreath causing it to look fuller. 

Don't squeeze to many ornaments on the hanger or they will pop off once you attach the hanger back together. If you have ornaments popping off you can Hot Glue the tops on to help prevent them falling off in the future. 



4. Re-twist the top of the wire hanger.

5. Arrange the ornaments to your liking. Go ahead and hot glue any ornaments that have popped off their tops to prevent them from popping off in the future.

6. Cover the hanger by adding a bow.
The bow I originally bought looked funny once my wreath was together so I bought another bow.

7. Hang your new Ornament Wreath on your front door or any other door or place you might want your wreath to be displayed and enjoy!

Make the Ornament Wreath your own. Buy ornaments to match the rest of your Christmas decorations, add bows, icicles, tulle, etc... to your wreath. Add anything you want to make your Ornament Wreath unique for your home. The Christmas Ornament Wreath is super easy to make and very budget friendly. If you want to purchase an Ornament Wreath they sell them in stores and online ranging from $50 to $200 or you can just make your own Ornament Wreath like I did for around $10; you can't beat that! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, feel free to comment below with a picture of your ornament wreath.

Pallet Christmas Tree

Last Christmas I decided that we needed more Christmas decorations for our house so when summer rolled around I got busy making a couple Christmas decorations. The first project was Pallet Christmas Trees. My husband brought home a couple pallets from work and helped me make the Pallet Christmas Trees. They've been sitting in our garage for a couple months but I finally got around to painting them. Overall the Pallet Christmas Trees are fairly easy to make if you have the proper tools.

Supplies:

  • Nice Wood Pallet
  • Pencil & Ruler
  • Saw - we used a circular hand saw
  • Sander
  • Hammer & Nails - to attach the base
  • Green & Brown Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Wood Sealer

How To:


1. Using a pencil and a ruler, mark off your Christmas Tree. You can make your Christmas tree any size you prefer.

2. Carefully follow your lines and cut out your Christmas Tree. Remove any wood pieces from the pallet you don't want showing. (Some Pallets have a back)



3. Add your base using your hammer and nails. You can do this several different ways but here is how we made our bases:




- For the small Christmas Tree, we cut one of the side pieces of the pallet, nailed the wood together in the shape of an X and attached the Christmas Tree to the base.

- For the bigger Christmas Tree, we left part of the back of the pallet attached to the Christmas Tree. We then cut a small rectangular piece of wood and attached the front and back of the Christmas Tree to the rectangular piece. This Christmas Tree is a lot more sturdy than the smaller Christmas Tree.

4. Sand your Christmas Tree.

5. Paint your Christmas Tree. Let Dry.

I painted the Christmas Trees green with a brown base. You can paint/decorate your tree however you want. You can paint your tree white, green, red, rotate green and red; stain your tree, paint ornament's on your tree, add a star, add lights, etc...

6. Cover your Christmas Tree with a wood sealer. This will help protect your Christmas Tree, especially if you plan on decorating the outside of your home with it. The wood sealer will also lock in the paint and add a nice glossy finish to your Christmas Tree. Let Dry.

When Christmas rolls around, decorate the outside of your home with your new Pallet Christmas Tree or find a place for it to go inside. You can add Christmas lights to it to make it stand out at night if it is outside or you can add a star and some ornaments to it if it is inside your home. Decorate your Christmas Tree however you want!
