DIY Spring Bunny Door Hanger

How to make a Spring Bunny Door Hanger

How to Make a Spring Bunny Door Hanger with Acrylic Paint and StyleTechCraft Vinyl.

I love changing out my decorations with the seasons.

For Spring this year, I decided I needed a new bunny.

This cute little bunny door hanger makes me smile every time I see him.

Dollar Tree* always seems to have the perfect wood cut out for me to use.

And when it only costs $1.25, it’s affordable too.

  • My project was inspired by a Large Floral Rabbit Decoration that I saw at Michael’s Craft Store.  I liked the look of the painted flowers on the rabbit.  But since my hand-painting skills are not that good, a floral stencil would have to do.

  • To create the handle, paint several wood beads with the same acrylic paint as the flowers.
  • String the beads onto a piece of natural twine*.  
  • An Easy DIY Tip: Dip the end of the twine into craft glue. Twirl the fibers with your fingers tips to make the strands tight. Once the glue dries, it’s easy to add the beads.

How to make Plaid Shaker Heart Ornaments for Valentine’s Day

DIY Plaid Shaker Hearts

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

I’m always looking for simple Valentine’s Home Decor projects.

This Plaid Shaker Heart Ornament is super easy to make.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

Who’s Up for a little Valentine’s Day Plaid?

No matter the season, I’m always a little “Mad for Plaid”.

I had fun experimenting with different color combinations for my plaid hearts.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

Directions:

  • My heart ornaments are approximately 4″ x 4″ with a 1¼” x 1¼” heart opening in the center.
  • Paint both sides of two heart ornaments with red paint.
  • Place thin strips of removable tape* across the heart ornament.  Alternate between thicker and thinner strips.
  • Rub your finger over the tape to make sure that the tape* is securely on the ornament and has no gaps.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • Paint inside the stripes with a thin coat of pink acrylic paint.  Be careful not to apply the paint too thick.   Only one thin coat of paint is needed.
  • Remove painter’s tape.
  • Allow the paint to fully dry before continuing to the next step.

Stripes are good too.

If you like stripes better than plaid, you can skip the next step.

  • Next, add strips of Removable Tape* vertically over the heart.
  • Make sure the tape is flat with no gaps.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • Paint over the heart with a thin coat of white paint.
  • Carefully remove the tape.  Allow the paint to dry.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • Using a Sanding Block* lightly sand the heart ornament. Sanding smooths the woodgrain and helps to hide any little imperfections.
  • Wipe with a clean cloth.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • For a little extra pop of gold.  
  • Edge the sides of the heart ornament with a Chisel Point Gold Leaf Pen*.
  • Don’t forget to add a little gold to the center heart.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • On the back of both hearts, add craft glue around the center heart.  Place a small piece of clear acetate* over the heart opening.
  • On the back of the plaid heart, place strips of double-sided adhesive craft foam* around the center heart.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • Place heart sprinkles inside the craft foam over the acetate.
  • Remove the protective coating from the craft foam and carefully line up the second heart to close.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

  • Loop a long piece of white yarn through the top hole of the ornament.
  • Add craft glue to the ends of the yarn and twist the fibers to make them tight. 
  • That makes it easier to string the beads.
  • I used gold beads left-over from a Christmas project and strung them onto the yarn.
  • Create a yarn tassel and tie it to the end of the beaded yarn.

How to make Plaid Shaker hearts using Dollar Tree Heart Ornaments.

Place the Plaid Shaker Heart with your Winter Decor to add a little Valentine’s Love.

If you happen to see these wood heart ornaments at your local Dollar Tree*

make sure to pick up a package or two.

They would also make adorable Christmas Ornaments.

Celebrating Winter with a Little Paper Crafting

Winter Memories Album

Now that the Holidays are over, I’m embracing the quiet of the Winter Season

by creating a few things with Eileen Hull’s and Sizzix’s New Release Chapt. One Dies

and the Simple Winter Woods Scrapbook Collection Kit from Simple Stories*.

Look at this beautiful New Scrapbook Paper Collection from Simple Stories.

I fell in love with the soft, muted colors of the Simple Winter Woods Collection*

and knew I had to have it.  (It was perfect for these projects.)

Winter Memories Album

First, I must show you the new toy I got for Christmas this year.

After many years of use and abuse, I finally upgraded my old Big Shot Machine with a Newer, Bigger model.

Behold the Sizzix Big Shot Plus Die-Cutting Machine*.

I needed it to die-cut the larger dies like the NEW Sizzix Frame Pocket Journal Die by Eileen Hull*.

Winter Memories Album

Winter Memories Album

The Journal measures 4 1/2” x 6 1/2” x 1 1/4” with an adjustable spine.

What makes this die special are the additional pieces on the die, a pocket to hold ephemera, a frame and flap!

Winter Memories Album

There are several ways to make the inside of your album.  

Winter Memories Album

I created a pocket on the inside of the album using the die and covered matboard.

Winter Memories Album

The pocket is great for adding a small skinny notebook or several little notecards.

I used the 3″ x 4″ journal cards from the Winter Woods Paper Collection for the front of the cards.

Winter Memories Album

I used twine and the holes on the spine to hold a small notebook in place.  

I covered the Small Kraft Notebook* using a paper and stickers from the collection.

Hello Winter 2023 Framed Picture

Continuing with the Winter Theme…

I created a framed picture using the NEW Sizzix Thinlets Tile Alphanumeric Die by Eileen Hull*.

The Tile Alphanumeric is very versatile because you can use both the positive and negative shapes.

Each letter is perforated which makes it easy to create and line up words.

Hello Winter 2023 Frame Picture

It’s so easy to create a little dimensional piece of art using the supplies you have around you.

Simple Vintage Winter Woods Card

And last but not least, I created a 5″ x 7″ card using Eileen’s NEW Sizzix 3D Tablecloth Embossing Folder

as the background for my card.

Directions:

  • Paint both sides of the Wood Trucks with acrylic paint.

Kringle's Christmas Tree Truck-A Dollar Store Holiday DIY

Unless you are steady-handed and can paint a perfect circle, here’s a trick I used.

  • Cut a circle the same size as the truck wheel. Cut the circle in half and use it as a mask to paint the top of the wheel. I used removable vinyl to cut my circle.

I added words to a plain ornament to create a “cut your own” sign.

  • I used Wood Glue* to glue the truck.  I needed glue that would give me enough time to line up the box and still be sturdy enough to hold the weight.
  • Allow time for the glue to dry before picking up the finished truck.

  • Decorate the body of the truck using a craft pine stem as garland. 
  • Glue small bows and beads onto the garland.

When I ordered the little trees at IKEA, I really hoped the trees would fit. 

I couldn’t be happier with the size.

  • Use a dry brush with a small amount of paint to apply lighter coats of paint over the outside of the box. I painted from dark to light. I used a combination of the dry brush technique with stippling to get my desired look.

As much as I love the summer weather, I do love Fall.

The cooler weather, the beautiful colors… 

I only wish it’d turn right back to summer when it was done.

Nuts for Fall Acorn Door Hanger

Directions:

  • Lightly sand the acorn shape using a sanding block*.
  • Paint the acorn with acrylic paint.
  • Trace around the top of the acorn to create a pattern for the acorn top. Fill in the bottom with a wavy line.  Trace the pattern onto plaid scrapbook paper and cut it out. 
  • There are different ways to adhere to the paper. My favorite way is to use the
  • Xyron Creative Station* to add adhesive to the back of the scrapbook paper.  
  • Add the plaid paper to the top of the acorn. Use an extra fine point black sharpie* to add a border around the acorn top shape.

Nuts for Fall Acorn Door Hanger

  • Using a Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die Cutting Machine* and the Nuts for Fall SVG File, size the design to fit onto the bottom of the acorn shape. Cut the design using several colors of StyleTechCraft Luster Adhesive Vinyl.
  • Once you remove the area inside and around the cut vinyl, use transfer tape* to add the design to the acorn.
  • Decorate the top of the acorn with a big bow, faux leaves, and a small acorn embellishment.
  • Add a small piece of twine for hanging onto a door or add it to the center of a Fall Wreath.

How to make a Welcome Autumn Pillow using craft vinyl to make the Stencil

How to make a Welcome Autumn Pillow using a Craft Vinyl Stencil:

  • For my pillow, I used off-white fabric that I purchased at a garage sale several years ago. I cut two panels 15″ x 15″.
  • I created the stencil pattern using the “Welcome Autumn” SVG file and my Silhouette. I sized the image to fit onto my fabric panels.
  • I cut the image using StyleTechCraft Craft Vinyl*. (I originally tried using removable vinyl on my fabric, but it wasn’t quite tacky enough and a little hard to apply.)
  • To create the stencil, remove the letters and the leaves from the vinyl, leaving a reverse image.  
  • Use a low-tack transfer paper to transfer the vinyl onto the fabric.

How to make a Welcome Autumn Pillow using craft vinyl to make the Stencil

  • Make sure that the stencil is securely stuck to the fabric to eliminate paint seepage.
  • Place a piece of paper behind the fabric panel to protect your work surface.
  • Paint the leaves using a small paint brush and a variety of acrylic paint in Autumn colors.  
  • Paint the words “welcome Autumn using black acrylic paint.  

How to make a Welcome Autumn Pillow using craft vinyl to make the Stencil

  • After the paint has dried, carefully remove the stencil.  
  • I may have squealed a bit when I removed the stencil. It is perfectly imperfect, and I love how it turned out!
  • Iron over the fabric to set the design.
