Bunny Bum Easter Buckets

I don’t know about you, but when I find a great deal on craft supplies, I pick them up. I always feel great that I am saving money, but then I get to a point when I am overwhelmed with the amount of supplies I have accumulated. That is when we hold “crafting marathons” at our house. The kiddos and I grab a bunch of supplies and spread out on the table and create until our creative juices run dry. ūüėČ

That is exactly what I did for this project.

DIY Lucky Sign

DIY Lucky Sign mycreativedays.com

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.

You Complete Me {LOVE} Mugs

You Complete Me Love Mugs

Hello everyone! ¬†I’m thrilled to be here today to share my latest project … a set of ‘you complete me’ LOVE mugs. ¬†This set would be a great gift for someone special OR for that special couple. ¬†With Valentine’s Day and wedding season just around the corner … you may just want to make a couple sets!

I love a good homemade gift ‚Ķ and I love a good thrift store find. ¬†This project just happens to involve both! ¬†When I spotted these white Crate and Barrel mugs at Goodwill the other week, I knew I would find a way to put them to good use! ¬† ¬†At $0.99, I really couldn’t go wrong ‚Ķ right?!?!

You Complete Me Love Mugs

LOVE THIS COMBO … CRATE AND BARREL WITH GOODWILL $0.99 STICKERS ON TOP!

If your Goodwill doesn’t happen to have these beauties, Ikea and Target are also great sources of inexpensive plain white mugs. ¬†Besides the mugs, you’ll need:

  • Adhesive letter stencils. ¬†You could use a variety of stencils here (purchased letter stencils, stencils made with a Silhouette or Cricut and adhesive vinyl, etc). ¬†I ended up using letter stickers from Target (sold in the poster aisle). ¬†Instead of using the letters themselves (as I’m sure most people use these for, I used the outsides to form the stencil).
  • Embossing powder in two colors
  • White / clear stamp pad
  • Heat gun
