Pinterest Obsession

So I recently discovered Pinterest! Not sure how I didn't know about it before, but it's amazing! It's making me want to craft like crazy, lol. Here's a few things I've been working on:

I made these hurricane vases out of 4 Dollar Tree vases. I've seen it done several times, and it was something I've been wanting to do. This one was so easy. I simply took one of each, and used epoxy to glue them together! Turned out great I think! 
(and I'm loving the acorns I put in them. Perfectly easy fall decor =))

I also made a twine wrapped letter. I love the way this looks too! Just wrapped some twine around a 99 cent wooden letter from Hobby Lobby. It was really simple, although I must say, I think W is the most difficult letter for this lol! I had to do it in six parts!

I totally jacked this idea from a friend, but I love these coasters. I have a TON of wine corks, and I'm always looking for crafts using them.

Another Dollar Tree Craft. These were hideous ceramic birds, but I've been looking for some birds for our master bedroom, and I knew I could make these perfect. Just took a little spray paint!

My chalkboard clock before and after. I've been looking for something to hang over my stove for a while, but I just couldn't find anything that I was crazy about. I've seen a bunch of ideas for using chalkboard spray paint and loved them all! So I started digging around in my closets and found this clock. Not so much my style, but I knew I could make it work. 

Jay says it looks silly without the numbers, but I wanted it to be more of a place for notes. Besides, it's right next to the microwave, and seriously who can't read a clock without numbers?! Lol it's just a tad bit more difficult.

This is fall-ish wreath for the front door. I wanted something simple, and I think this suits perfectly. Just a  branch wreath and some ribbon, with a bow of course ;)

This is a flag for our kitchen wall. Jay had it before, but apparently it was in the shed at the old house, because I'd never seen it before a week ago. I'm doing a red white and blue kitchen, so this was perfect. I just spray painted the frame to make it match the rest of the finishes.

And we're making BEER!!!


  1. Totally jacked the cork idea from me! LOL JK :)

  2. Look at you SusyHomeMaker! This is awesome!!! I am so excited for you. I love the Twine letter and the cork coasters especially! And funny story.. Did you know Aimee cant tell time on a real clock? (I think she could if she took a few seconds to think and remember but she is impatient!) I love you!

  3. I love all these!! Where can I get epoxy? I'm assuming craft stores? Everything looks great!!

  4. lol I love Aimee! and yeah I picked up the epoxy that I used at Hobby Lobby for like two bucks!
