- Spoons (I got all of mine at the thrift store for about 5/$1) and ended up using 36 //
- White paint (can be latex or acrylic) //
- Variety of other paint colors //
- Plastic/paper cups //
- Tape //
- Double sided tape (I love 3m, this is exactly what I use, they are big rolls and expensive but check ebay. You could also get these thicker rolls and just cut them down, but I can’t guarantee its as strong as what I use)
Aren’t sprinkles like…one of the top three cutest thing ever?! I think so. And so I love these sprinkle covered silhouettes! I think the words would be so cute as the food signs at a party. Or just imagine these on a much larger scale inside a shadow box-like frame in your child’s room! eeee!
- Sprinkles //
- Glue //
- Paper //
- Photos of loved ones/typed or hand drawn words
First get a photo of your most favorite thing. One of mine is obviously Malissa!
Before our kitchen in our current place was redone we were stuck with a 70’s kitchen that needed some serious DIY to make it not so…bleh. The easiest and most favorite upgrade that I did was covering the fridge with chalkboard contact paper. It made for a great canvas to decorate for any occasion. Cover the fridge with the contact paper and you’re done! It also came off easily after being on the fridge for around 9 months!
- Chalkboard Contact Paper //
Roll the contact paper over the fridge, using a decent amount of pressure to reduce the air bubbles. It was easier in smaller chunks to do this but I wanted the final product to look as smooth as possible so I did it in two main sections. It only took me 20 minutes and I used 2 rolls of contact paper (but was unable to finish both sides of the fridge- but since one side was next to the wall it didn’t matter!)
- Primer & spray paint in your choice of color. I used Krylon primer and enamel paint in Ocean Breeze //
- Stickers or sticker paper
Here’s all you need to do:
Print any shape you so desire onto sticker paper, here are a few you can choose from:
Just click and copy or save the one/s you want.
Cut the shape out and stick to your plate on top of a part of the print you’d like to still show through after. Then prime and paint your plate using spray paint. Let the paint dry for at least 24 hours before removing your sticker. If any of the paint has seeped through the edges, you can use the tip of a toothpick the clean it up.
Now hang your artwork using a plate hanger (you can purchase at any super store or arts and craft store) or display it in a small easel.
There is no built in lighting in our bedroom so we’ve had to rely on lamps for all our light but I’ve been wanting something else for a long time. I finally got around to making something and like the best DIY projects, it required very little supplies and was quick and easy!
- Shelf bracket (I got mine at Ikea) //
- Light cord (I used the Ikea Hemma cord set) //
- Light bulb (mine is from Crate & Barrel) //
- Screw driver or gun //
Use a ruler (or eyeball) where you want the sconce to go.
Use the screw driver to secure the shelf bracket to the wall. I only used one screw for this and I think it will be enough for it to hold up but use your judgement.
Now that it is on the wall we are almost done!
Take our your lighting cord and screw on the light bulb.
