DIY: Valentine’s Day Rainbow Banner

This is a fun little rainbow banner for Valentine’s Day make with felt and string. Keep reading to see how to make it!

Required Material:

  • Squares of craft felt in rainbow colors
  • Bakers twine
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread
  • Scissors
  • Chalk
  • Heart cookie cutter
  • Batting
  • Pins
  • Start by tracing the heart shape onto a piece of felt folded in half

After it has been traced with chalk, pin the middle to keep both sides together.

Cut out your hearts. Keep the pins in. Set pinned hearts aside.

Do the same with the other rainbow colors.

Now sew both pieces together along the edge in a extra wide stitch with contrasting thread. You could also handstitch these. Leave 2 inches open to add the batting.

Stuff the batting into the heart and sew up the last inch.

Do the same with the other colors (I only ended up making one of each color as opposed to the two I had cut out).

Thread some bakers twine into a embroidery needle and poke through the top end of one, threading it through to the other side. Make sure to put the hearts on in rainbow order.

Keep adding to the thread until they’re all on.

DIY Miniature Fairy Garden Terrarium – Enchanted Mushroom Lights

Hi, in this tutorial I made a fairy garden terrarium with mushroom lights and a fairy mushroom house. I used some extruded polystyrene (xps styrofoam), battery operated led lights, transparent sanitary silicone sealant, tin foil, copper wire, hot glue, a little bit of polymer clay, moss and acrylic paint. I also used a glass cake cover. Step 1: Preparing the Board I first cut the styrofoam board to fit the glass cake cover. I adjusted the corners with a cutter, then I painted it black. Step 2: Adding the Lights

 

I then glued the lights to some pieces of copper wire. I made the wires in different lengths and also left more wire on the upper side (that will be helpful when making the mushroom caps). I glued the copper wires to the foam board with hot glue. I added some volume to the board using tin foil and hot glue.

Step 3: Making the Mushrooms

I mixed some red acrylic paint with silicone and made a paste. I applied the paste on the wires and leveled it using soap and water. For making the mushroom caps I used the silicone paste and wrapping foil. I applied some paste on the plastic foil and covered it. Then I started shaping it into a mushroom cap. For making the round shapes I used the cones inside of an eggs carton. I also covered the tinfoil base using the same silicone paste in black. Using some tin foil I made a cone and covered it with polymer clay. I sculpted a little house, baked it and painted it with acrylic paint.

Step 4: Moss and Details

I placed the moss over the board, carefully mixing the patches and used toothpicks to fix it in place. I also made some cute white dots on the house using white silicone.

I love the result!

DIY Vintage Style Cross Stitch Shelf

Here’s how to make this vintage cross stitch shelf! (I know you might not find a shutter like this, but you can use these steps to create something similar with other vintage finds!) I started with this old cane shutter. It was white and kind of chippy, but kind of dingy too. I wanted something a little less “worn” looking. I gave the whole thing a coat of Folk Art® Home Decor Chalk in White Adirondack. It only took one coat, I just wanted to freshen things up. After drying I brushed on the wax and now it has a pretty sheen too. Yay! I couldn’t find brackets in a color I liked so I picked up white glossy metal brackets and painted them with the Folk Art Home Decor Chalk in Summer Porch. It’s the most delicious color of yellow. They got a coat of wax too. I knew that I wanted to use a light floral sheet to cover my top shelf. I cut a length of 8″ wide pine to the same length as my shelf. I covered that in one coat of the White Adirondack as well. I didn’t wax it though, since it was going to be covered with fabric.

Now it was time to start stitching! I have a free cross stitch pattern for you here – you can use it on something similar or even on a regular cross stitch project.

I used two strands of yarn on each stitch, since the cane was so big one strand of yarn didn’t fill the space enough. Cross stitch just as you would on fabric, but try to keep your yarn on the back from showing through the cane.

I stitched a floral pattern in colors similar to the fabric I was using on the top of the shelf.

So fun right?

Onto the top shelf! To cover the shelf I cut a section from one of my favorite vintage sheet patterns. I cut it so that it would overlap on the back and sides just a bit. To cover the shelf, apply a layer of Mod Podge on the top portion of the shelf and lay the fabric in place. Smooth it down so there are no wrinkles.

Repeat for the front edge and bottom of the sheet, once the top is dry. Trim the back edge so that the fabric will overlap on the back side, without wrapping around to the bottom or top. Mod Podge the back edge down as well.

For the sides, I trimmed the fabric so the bottom didn’t cover the whole short side and mod podged it down. Then for the top and sides, I folded them envelope style and wrapped them around to the bottom. I trimmed the fabric so the edge would be covered by the bracket. That way everything looks nice and tidy and you don’t have any raw edges showing.

Once everything was dry it was time for assembly!

I placed the shelf on the shutter and marked the bracket holes with a pencil. For the underside of the shelf, I trimmed off the fabric in a circle around the mark with an Exacto knife and removed the fabric so it wouldn’t get all twisted up with the drill. I screwed the bracket in place and covered the screws with Summer Porch paint to make it all blend together.

I think it is such a fun piece and I’m going to love having it my studio. It’s so bright and colorful!
