DIY Lucky Sign

Hello My Crafty Spot readers! It is Lindsay from My Creative Days here to share a DIY project to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow.

I am someone who loves to see the potential in almost everything. I keep stacks of old wood, miscellaneous metal pieces and odds and ends from all of my projects because I know I can reuse them for something else. This sign is a great example of that. I had a left over horseshoe in our garage and some old, wood boards that I wanted to bring together for a sign on St. Patrick’s Day.

The Power Of A Can Of White Spray Paint

The Power Of A Can Of White Spray Paint mycreativedays.com

Hello, My Crafty Spot readers! It is Lindsay from My Creative Days back to share with you one of my favorite design tricks. This trick lets me have the fabulous pieces I see in retail stores at a fraction of the cost.

I don’t know about you, but when I am shopping in retail stores (yes, I love those too), I find so many great things I would love to bring home, but there is no way I would pay their hefty price tag for them. Are you the same way? Yes? I have the solution. Spray paint!

There are so many times that I find things at yard sales and thrift store that are in great shape, but just need a face lift. Most of the time, it is the color that I don’t like and that is the easiest fix I can ask for. A can of spray paint can go a long way and it can make the biggest difference without a lot of time or money spent.

Today, I am going to share with you a few pieces I recently made over with a can of white spray paint.

Owls are so popular right now. I have to admit that I love them and see them in all my favorite retail stores. I have seen many that I like, but I can’t justify paying $20 for something to sit on my shelf or night stand. So, how do I get the same look without that $20 price tag? Shop yard sales and find this brown beauty for $1.

I am not a person who decorates a lot for Valentine’s Day. I do add a few things here and there and this year, I was inspired to make this Ombre Heart On Burlap project for our front door.

I bought a set of burlap panels at Michaels last year.

DIY Wood Slice Candle Centerpiece

Hello, My Crafty Spot readers! I hope your new year is off to a good start! It is Lindsay from My Creative Days here to share with you an easy DIY Wood Slice Candle Centerpiece.

Every year, on Valentine’s Day, our family has dessert for dinner! Fun, right?! We started this when our kids were little and they still love it and look forward to it every year. Now, I know some of you are saying dessert for dinner? EEK! I do add a lot of fruit to the dinner and we have smoothies that I add a lot of nutritional stuff to so it isn’t all bad.

We always have a candle on the table to make the dinner even more special, but this year, I wanted to make an even bigger statement with a centerpiece for our candles.
