Wonky Dr. Seuss Inspired Wreath

This diagonal shaped Dr. Seuss inspired wreath is crooked and askew. If you are a Dr. Seuss fan you know that little was straight; his artwork did not lend to straight lines, and it was not flat.

This is a great project to do while you are watching TV. Once the lengths are cut, it is tie, tie, tie. There is a pattern, but it isn’t difficult. And, because this wreath is supposed to be wonky, mistakes are a plus!

Wonky Dr. Seuss Inspired Wreath Notes:

• You want this wreath frame to be a tad beat-up if possible. Buy the most dented one on the shelf. You can also bend the wires on the frame a bit, but be careful not to break the tines.

• You want your wreath nice and full. If you skimp, you cannot hide it.

• The pipe cleaners are added for more depth, again Dr. Seuss is not flat. You could also add ribbons for a little extra crazy – red, black, or white works for this wreath.

• This is hung as a diagonal, not as a square.

Wonky Dr. Seuss Inspired Wreath Colors:

When picking colors for this wonky Dr. Seuss wreath, match them to a book color theme, especially if giving this as a teacher’s gift, to someone passing their teaching boards, or for a baby shower.

All Dr. Seuss branded fabrics are busy. Dr. Seuss is busy, so that fits. To not overwhelm your wreath (or your eyesight) pick a cooler and warmer color to compliment the wreath. Choose your pipe colors to match the main colors of the color scheme, and do it all in threes. You can add a fourth or fifth color for more depth and contrast.

While Dr. Seuss is not very sparkly, some sparkly green mesh was used on this wreath to add some depth and contrast. Consider that when you choose your colors and material for your wreath.

For this wreath the three most comon Dr. Seuss colors were choosen:

Cat in the Hat, Grinch, Mulbury Street
White
Red (but not cherry or fire engine red, a deeper red color)
Black

Other color choice schemes that work very well for Dr. Seuss:

Sneetches, Yertle the Turtle, Hoton Hatches the Egg
Black/ White/ Turquoise Blue

Oh, the Places you Will Go, the Lorax, Butter Battle Book
Orange/Yellow/Blue – but muted colors

Note: the green tulle was added sparingly when the wreath was completely knotted. You do not have to add another color. This wreath looked a little flat, so even though Dr. Seuss is not really sparkly, a touch was added to make the wreath pop. YMMV of course!

Beach Wineglass DIY Décor

aqua painted wineglasses, upside down, with sand and pebbles embellishments on a grey background


Make your own beach themed wineglasses with these easy step-by-step tutorial instructions. This is a great summertime craft, makes a fabulous shark week decoration, or if you have beach themed décor in your home or on your lanai, patio or in your three-season room, this is a fun and funky craft project to add to it. These highly customizable beach wineglasses are simple to make and will look great on your mantel, side table or as part of a larger décor theme.

Beach Wineglass DIY Décor

I have a lot of these wineglass décor DIYs on my blog. I simply love how fast and easy they are to do! They make a great part of a centerpiece; they look fabulous on a fireplace mantel or on a side table. You can use them to add that “final” decoration to a holiday display – you know, the one that pulls it all together.

You can see all the different painted wineglass crafts by clicking here. However, if you are in the summer season, this DIY Pineapple Candle Holder or prehaps these “flags” are something you may want to consider – or perhaps this adorable (it is one of my favorites!) Love Bug Wineglass DIY.

I also have turkeys, snowmen, love monsters (Valentine’s or Halloween!), a witch or a yellow chick or Easter egg work for you?

Yeah, as you can tell I love these easy-peasy wineglass crafts.

I wanted one for the summer. Oh sure, I have the “American Flag” wineglasses, but I wanted something that could be on display all summer long. These beach wineglasses are fantastic!! You can stop at sand and rocks for a nice beachy feel, or add sharks (shark week!!) for an er, not-so-nice beachy feel. Tropical fish are another way to dress these up.

Honestly? As with all crafts, you start with a basic idea you see on a blog post, and then change the color or embellish it to make it yours!!

Beach Wineglass DIY Décor Notes:

• The only thing I suggest on this project is to try and go with the Aqua Flash Paint. The color is beautiful, it “shimmers”, and matches very well with light brown or yellow sand.

• This craft shows three of the same size wineglasses. You can vary them to match whatever look you are going for (centerpiece, mantel, side, etc).

• If you do not have Elmer’s glue, make sure the glue you are using to form waves and dip in the sand will dry clear (or the color of your sand).

Farmhouse Décor: Laundry Room Organizer

painted laundry room and bird stencil on a rustic tray with basket and clothespins


Need to organize your laundry room? Looking for a place to store your outdoor clothesline clothespins? Make your own laundry room organizer! This adorable little DIY organizer is stylish and functional. A perfect place to keep clothespins, stain treatments, dryer balls, and more, this rustic organizer is a farmhouse winner.

Farmhouse Décor: Laundry Room Organizer

I wanted to explore the farmhouse décor trend and asked my niece if she had any outdoor farmhouse style decorating ideas. I have that flower wheelbarrow in the backyard, the wooden table to grow my bagged vegetables, and we installed a shed (a much-needed shed!). Now, I wanted something that might match.

She brought in four ideas, including the terrific little DIY farmhouse house number sign I shared a last month, this sweet little jar flower holder and this Farmhouse Décor: Age and Stencil a Crate. This painted mirror is number four, and we have a fifth in this laundry room organizer!

We actually made everything at the same time as these five projects use a lot of the same materials for all the projects. Not only did it keep costs down, but it also sped things along.

Farmhouse Décor: Laundry Room Organizer Notes:

• If you plan on hanging this outside, you may want to varnish the frame first. The more coats, the more water resistent.

• The vinegar solution you make MUST sit for at least 24 hours uncovered. If you cover the solution, it might oxidize and turn orange.

• The vinegar solution smells. Do this outside if possible, a well-ventilated area if not.

• When you stain this wood (or any cheaper wood) the colors of the wood will reveal themselves differently during the staining (tea and vinegar) process depending on the wood used. One board may be one color, the next a different color, and it may vary if you purchase two alike items. That is why a rustic or farmhouse décor is perfect for cheaper woods – it is by definition a more forgiving décor.

• White a farmhouse or rustic style decoration is indeed very forgiving, if you end up with a splotch of paint from your stencil, just go over it with a leave or flower to create more florals. Or, simply leave it. As I said, forgiving.

• Optional: if your tray does not have a hanger on the back, add some twine and staple and /or tack the twine on the back of the plaque. You can braid three pieces of twine together for added strength, tie off the ends and then staple the twine to the back of the tray and added two brads on each side to hold it as the last thing you want is for it to slip and fall.

• Nearly all the materials necessary to make this simple Farmhouse Décor: Laundry Room Organize can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby.

Farmhouse Décor: Laundry Room Organizer Directions:

• Create a whitewash-like paint: simply add a little bit of white paint and water to a jar with a lid. Shake vigorously to combine. You want the whitewash-like paint to be the consistency of cream.
• Cover your work surface against any spills.

Instructions

  1. 24 hours before making this craft, prepare a vinegar solution. In a small jar, fill ¾ of the way to the top with vinegar and insert a steel wool pad. Allow to sit for 24 hours uncovered.
  2. Create a whitewash-like paint: simply add a little bit of white paint and water to a jar with a lid. Shake vigorously to combine. You want the whitewash-like paint to be the consistency of cream.
  3. Cover your work surface against any spills.
  4. Using a foam brush, paint on some of the whitewash-like paint onto the tray (do not wipe this one). Continue until the entire body of tray is completely whitewashed.
  5. While the whitewash is still wet (do not allow to dry), "paint" your tray with the vinegar solution. Note: some of the paint will come off on your foam brush.
  6. Allow to dry.
  7. Lay out stencil. Make sure it is straight. Tack down the stencil with tape if you like.
  8. Green Shadow was used to paint the laundry stencil. This paint dries darker. Using a dabber brush, paint the stencil sign,
  9. Lift straight up to remove.
  10. Allow to dry completely.
  11. Paint the bird stencil - blue, grey, green, you choose! On this project, dovetail grey was used.
  12. Lift straight up to remove.
  13. Allow to dry completely.
  14. Wash the stencils using soap and water so you can use them for a future project.
  15. Once the tray is completely dry, attach the basket. Be careful your screws or nails do not go through the wood to the other side (and be careful your work surface isn't marred underneath). If they do come through, either dremel the excess off, or use a putty to prevent scratches from the longer nail or screw.
  16. Hang as desired.
