8 DOLLAR TREE DIY MODERN FARMHOUSE DECOR IDEAS 2020 | MAGNOLIA Inspired
hi everybody and welcome the fat tax I'm rosemary and thanks for stopping by in today's video I have eight
Magnoliaand the one and only Joanna Gaines there are some older favorites as well as several from their new spring collection there are eight DIYs in total and a lot to cover so let's go ahead and get started first up is the large faux succulent terrarium which is new in the spring collection I picked up this bag of pebbles as well as the small succulent plant from the
Treethe other materials are going to be recyclables including this widemouth jar this top to a old handle and then also another lid that's a smaller lid that can go inside the larger lid and then a vitamin water bottle lid as well as a large bead that I had on hand if I was going to match the color of the original I would have painted these items a like light brown color like this waverly paint however I want to match the wood that I already have from the candle lid and so I'm going to take a brown and red and I'm gonna just kind of mix them together until I get a color that is close to the color of the candle jar lid that I have on here I've been payment my lids and the bead with that color of paint and then I put the smaller lid into the larger lid and glued that in with some e6000 glue and then I also glued the bead on top of the vitaminwater cap which was also painted and now I'm going to go ahead and add all of my...
rocks to the base which is now the smaller lid inside the smaller lid I'm gonna do that by just hot gluing about putting some hot glue in the bottom and then having some of the little pebbles on top and hearing them to the glue and then proceeding to build up the rocks all around again using the glue and I do want to get them down and in place because they will shift around in the bottle when I'm trying to put the Bob or the the jar back on to the lid and then it comes out all over and it gets where you don't want it to get so anyway just kind of gluing them down is the best way to do it so this way everything stays in place then I'm going to just take the little succulent from my succulent plant that I got from the
Treeadd some hot glue to the bottom and then just place that in inside the rocks and then everything is good to go ready to put the jar on top I'm going to just go ahead and like I said it gets a little bit hairy so you know kind of at least this jar and this plant it was a little bit of a tight fit so I had to move things around and now I'm going to just take that candle lid add some e6000 to the top of that and just place my terrarium on top and then just add the little topper and place that the middle and you're good together and then this is what it looks like when it's all together also little wood rounds that you can get from Michael's for about a
dollarso it would make a good substitute for that candle jar if you...
don't have one on hand and here's the two together the next one is an oldie but a goodie a bud days on a metal stand I started with one of these football peg games from the
Treeand put one of the pegs down there at the bottom hole I then took some spackle from the
Treeand then just proceeded to apply it with my finger getting it into all the other remaining holes then I use an old gift card to go back and scrape off the top and remove all the excess spackle next that took a plant support that I got from Lowe's for 98 cents and measured down 10 inches marked it off and then cut it there then I removed the red peg and added some hot glue to the hole and then insert it the cut plant support then went back and kind of used the red peg to squish that glue you know into that hole and make sure it was nice and secure next I painted the entire piece with some of this
farmhousemetallic black paint once the paint was dry I took one of these bud vases from the
Treeand just inserted it into the little holder at the top and here is the finished project filled with some greens or buds or flowers it makes a lovely little vase and here's the original by comparison project number three was
inspiredby one of my all-time favorite
magnolias pieces the open frame vase to start I'm going to take one of these 4 by 4 inch little wall hanging plaques that they sell at the
Treethey sell them all different types this one happens to have...
burlap and a metal plate on the top so I just removed those as well as the little hanger on the back and then gave the front a little sanding before painting it with this folk art metallic paint in the color sterling silver and I did give it two coats of paint to make the poles I use these barbecue skewers from the
Treeand I painted these with the metallic paint again this time in the color gunmetal I then cut four pieces each eight inches long to help with the construction I temporarily glued one of these small votive candles to the underside of my shadow box I then took some e6000 glue and added a small dab to each end on the side of the box then I went back with some hot glue and added a dab on top and on bottom of the e6000 and then proceeded to add one of my 8-inch sticks to the side and held it in place until the hot glue was set I then repeated the process on the other end adding a little hot glue above and below the e6000 and then adding my aided stick to the side holding it in place until the hot glue was set I then repeated the process all the way around the box until all four of my sticks were in place for the crossbars I took a remaining piece of the skewer and measured it right in place just marking it off and cutting where needed I then used some hot glue to attach and then repeat it for the other three sides I use the same process to measure cut and attach the upper crossbars once all four we're attached I just went back and touched up any areas...
needed with some more of the gunmetal paint to give the piece a tarnished look I used some black craft paint on a makeup sponge and it was just kind of like a dry sponge and kind of drying sponging it on and then kind of wiping it off just to give kind of a hazy tarnish over the top of the crossbars I also used the black paint around the edges of the base as well to give a rusted look I used some Brown craft paint and applied it all around the areas that would rust naturally places like the corners and areas where the metal would have been welded areas that would be exposed to rusting and here is the finished project with a small
Treedays and some fresh-cut greens and here is the original and the
Treeversion side by side next is the family fave the hanging walnut for this one I'm gonna use one of the
Treeutility hooks this is the one with seven hooks there is one of five hooks this is the larger one with seven and I'm going to just remove all of the center hooks just leaving the two outside hooks then I'm going to take a package of the
Treemousetraps and remove all the hardware from those I just want to use the wood there's also a little sticker on top I just pulled that off then I went back with my pliers and banged up the wood to give it a further aged look and then I'm going to go and use some of the e6000 I kind of applied the e6000 in kind of a dashed format and then I go in between the dashes with hot glue to add some...
hot glue to the wire as well and I'm going to start in the middle with these little mousetrap blocks and that's so that I can line it up nice and center line up the four piece is nice and center and then I'm going to do it at the left-hand side and then repeat the process on the right hand side the hot glue just allows it to set up quickly and then you definitely need the e6000 in order for it to keep the wood onto the metal but you don't want the e6000 shifting around so the hot glue is what will keep it in place while the e6000 sets up and then for some added support I'm going to go ahead and just hot glue some popsicle sticks well they're not the pop sees the larger craft sticks and hot glue those to the back at the seams this way it'll just hold it nice and tightly together so I'm going to put two of those sticks to the back behind the mousetraps next I'm going to use the handle from one of the
Treeplungers and I'm going to make some finials using these table tennis balls and so I just took a utility knife and I just cut an X on the top of the ball and I do that to two of the balls then I'm gonna go back with some scissors and just snip those edges out and then that'll create a hole in the ball so that I can attach it to the end of the handle and create a nice
decorative rod for the holder and then I'm gonna take the rod the holder and some of these magnetic clips and paint them all with the
black paint once the paint is dry I'm going to add some aging to all the pieces by using some of this brown craft paint then I'm just kind of spreading on again with a makeup brush kind of dry brushing it on I'm also going to accent with that bright yellow paint because the original piece does have some blond wood peeking through and that yellow paint is going to give me that effect and I'm going to give everything this treatment including my little ping-pong ball finials for the scroll I'm going to use this craft paper from the
TreeI'm going to leave the plastic on the plastic wrap on and I'm going to measure it down 12 inches and then mark there and then proceed to cut the paper with the wrapping on it and all at that 12 inch mark and I'm going to just use my little
treesaw to do that and then I can just remove the cellophane and add the paper to my
decorative rod and here is the finished project ready for your shopping list little reminders or maybe a local and then here is the original and the
treeversion side-by-side project number five is another new item in the
Magnoliaspring collection they're ceramic black rim cake stand this cake stand may look familiar to you from our hot cocoa bar video last Christmas in that video as well as in this one I'm going to use these Better Homes and Gardens plate and Bowl they're
dollarninety-nine each at Walmart and these are great because they're a nice heavy...
ceramic and the plate is more like a tray so it makes a perfect cake stand as well as a two-tier tray and then I'm going to just add some e6000 glue to the bottom leaving little spaces for my hot glue because I always like to do that so that my hot glue can hold it quickly and keep the e6000 or the pieces in place while the e6000 sets up I'm simply going to add that to the bottom of the plate hold it in place until that hot glue sets make sure it's nice and centered as well and then I'm going to just flip it over and be able to apply my paint to the rim and to do that I'm going to use some chalk paint you could use the multi-purpose paint that was the other paint that I showed there just briefly I'm going to just use a makeup sponge and I'm going to go all around the rim with the black paint now I use the chalk paint because even though the multi-purpose paint is supposed to be you know the one that's more preferable for glass surfaces I find that enough really stays has staying power like chalk paint so I'm gonna just go ahead and use that for this application and again just go all around the rim and create look of the
magnoliacake stand and here is the finished project with all of the paint applied and then here are the two side by side project number six is also new this spring it's the Baxter lantern for this project I used three of the small black frames also some of the craft wooden dowels one of these battery operated candles...
some of this garden wire and a box of Tabasco sauce all of this came from the
Treeincluding the Tabasco sauce I just actually want the box from there the Tabasco sauce is a bonus to start I'm going to take my dolls now four of those dowels are going to just stay twelve inches they're twelve inch dowels they're going to stay twelve inch dowels but I'm gonna take a couple of the dowels and I'm gonna cut them down into two and a half inch pieces those are gonna be for the crossbars on my lantern and so I'm gonna take one of my 12 inch dowels I'm gonna put a dab of hot glue on the end and then just add one of those crossbars to the bottom and hold it in place while the hot glue sets I'm gonna repeat the process at the top of that same Dao just adding one of the crossbars to the side and then holding it in place now I'm going to take some more hot glue and put it to the ends of those cross pieces and add one of one another one of my 12 inch dowels to the side so I'm create this nice rectangle out of the Dow's the two short pieces and the two long pieces then I'm going to repeat the process and make a second one then I'm going to take my little black frames and the two of those I have removed the frames and all their contents on the third one I'm going to keep everything in place except I'm going to just remove the back and then take off that little you know stand that sticks on the back then I'll go back to...
the front of that same frame the one that's in tact and add some e6000 glue and then go back again with my little dots of hot glue and then I'm going to take one of my empty frames and just place it right on top and glue those two pieces together and now to my two-piece glued together combo frame I'm going to go back to that I'm going to add some e6000 and some hot glue to the center of that frame top of that frame and then I'm going to add the glass piece on top next I'm going to take some e6000 and also some hot glue and I'm going to add those to the top of the glass and then I'm gonna take my rectangles and put them into the glue there on the top of the glass on top of the frame so the glass is what the rectangles are going to sit on otherwise it would just be that little thin piece of the frame and so the glass from the frame is giving you more of a surface to work with then I'm going to take my smaller pieces and go back and cut them down to size and just add some crossbars in again adding some e6000 and some hot glue to the top of the glass so that I can secure the sides in both at the bottom of the frame and then also on the sides holding the two rectangles together and then I just repeated the process on the other side for the top of the lantern I'm going to use the third frame again replacing the glass of the frame on the exterior of the frame so I just added some e6000 and then some hot glue to the top of the frame and then...
I'm going to just take that glass piece and lay it right on top and then once that glue is set I can go ahead and just replace the backing of the frame and then glue the lid onto the top of the lantern I'm gonna use the tabasco box to create the topper of the lantern and so I'm going to just measure up one and a half inches probably would have been better at 1 inch actually it does look a little bit off I think a 1 inch high would have been fine but anyway I cut it to one and a half inches and then I just use a hole punch to create two holes on the side and then used some of the wire to create a little handle and I just cut a piece and then wrapped it around the edges through the hole and on the other side as well and just shaped it into that same shape that is featured in the
Magnoliaversion the candle comes with a little holder and it also has a base that unscrews that's where the batteries go in and I'm going to take that base the holder the little topper and the lantern and paint them all with rust-oleum metallic aged copper spray paint and that's there on the left-hand side that is the finished product that's what it looks like after I spray painted it and now I want to give it a little bit of a tarnished look so I'm going to take some of this burnt umber paint I'm also going to add a little glazing medium because I don't want the paint to be really thick I want to kind of just give it that kind of haze of tarnish over the top so...
I can achieve that with a little bit of the glazing medium I have a large bottle there but you can get that I think it's like $1 or $2 for the small little container and then that just kind of thins your paint and creates you know an effect on top versus you know painting it over with the burnt umber so just kind of giving it a little burnt umber accent and still allowing the aged copper to shine through and so I'm gonna just paint the entire piece with this glaze you'll be able to see the effect better on this little topper so you can see where it was like a brighter aged copper look underneath and then when you apply the varnish it just kind of gives it a nice little haze over the top I'm just gonna take some of my e6000 apply it at the bottom of my topper and add it to the top of the lantern do that right in the middle right on top and then there is the finished lantern with the little candle on top and here it is comparison with the original
Magnoliaversion project number seven is a grass jar and like the terrarium before it gives an unconventional way to give a pop of green color for this project I used one of these glass jars from the
Treeas well as some of the reindeer moss and I just placed the reindeer moss in the bottom of the jar then I took some of these onion grass stems also from the
Treeand unwrapped the stems the outer kind of shell on it and then that reveals all of these smaller stems that you can cut into pieces and then...
what I did was take took a piece and that I measured it four inches so I'm gonna four inch pieces of the grass so I cut all the stems away from the main stem and then proceeded to cut them all down to four inches I then took the top pieces that work you know the cut remains and then just tape those off on the bottom and again cut four inches to create some more steps and then I just proceeded it to hot glue the bottoms and stick them right into the moss I did decide to go back and add some floral tape to the bottom since the transparent tape was sticking out through the mall she could see it so it is a better idea when doing this project to use floral tape at the bottom of the little stems that you cut and here's the finished project with all of the breasts inserted and here is the comparison between the
Treeversions and last but not least one of my other favorites of the
Magnoliacoffee sign to start I picked up the square wood Dow at Lowe's for two
dollars and 18 cents it's a 36 inch dowel so I just wanted to measure down 25 inches and Mark and cut there I then sanded the edge to get a nice smooth surface I then used a ruler to mark the points where I'm going to be applying or placing the letters so first I marked the one inch mark at the four inch mark at the five inch mark then down at the 8 inch mark then at the nine and the twelve inch mark I then took my ruler and reset it at that 12 inch mark to start over again and then...
again at the one inch mark at the five inch mark and at the nine inch mark now I'm going to start attaching screws at these marks and that's what's going to hold my letters so I'm gonna take some hot glue and these are two inch number 10 screws I'll have a list in the description box as well and I'm going to be adding the two inch screws to every mark except the one that I'm actually doing right now that one much I'm going to go back and change to a 1 inch screw but for now suffice to say that all the other marks will get a 2 inch number 10 screw and just go ahead and hot glue those on at each of the marks that were just made previously now as you see I'm going to go back because that's not gonna work that it's a small piece that has to go in there so I do need a 1 inch screw at that spot at that second spot but the rest will be the two inch screws and now I'm going to make my letters using these
Treepaper straws and so the first letter I'm making is an F and so I'm going to use a full straw for the down piece and then to cut pieces one at three inches and one at two-and-a-half inches and then that cross piece will be at the top will be the three inches to create the first horizontal line of the F and then just hold the hot glue in place until that sets and then drop down about an inch and a half add another dab of hot glue and put the two and a half inch cross piece in at that spot now in order to make sure that...
all of my subsequent letters lined up to my first letter I went and took the vertical piece and marked where the horizontal pieces came in obviously the top piece will always be at the top but those lower pieces might not be lined up so you want to go ahead and make sure you do that now I went back and marked on the board that the actual numbers were they lined up so this way it would be easier for me to explain where I was saying I was going to put the letters so what I'm gonna do is add the first F first and I'm gonna add it there at the number nine spot that first number nine spot and so I'm gonna just take some of this
Treecaulk and I'm gonna get it all over the threads get it um nice and goopy all around the threads of the screw so I'm gonna take my finger and make sure I get it all nice and smooth and inside the threads a little messy but it's worth it it's a really cute project and then I'm going to just insert the straw over top of the screw then I'm gonna go on and add the next F and again use the same process this time I'm going to do it at the number one spot there's not going to actually be anything at the number 12 spot that was just so that I could reset the ruler but that second number one spot is going to get our next F and then it just goes in and again wipe off any of that excess goopy talk at the bottom and the next letter is going to be the e insurgent at the number five second number five slot and the e...
was made the same way as the FS except of course a third horizontal piece was added to the bottom and that was a three-inch long horizontal piece to make the oh I'm going to go to the first five and eight screws and add some and then I'm going to just add two full straws right on top now before doing my horizontal pieces on the o I'm gonna finish all my vertical pieces and just go down to the C real quick and add some caulk to that number one and number four screw and then add a full-sized straw to number one and then a one and a half inch cut piece of straw to the number four screw to make the horizontal pieces I'm going to just take a straw and measure it right in place so I know how much to cut then I'm going to go ahead and add some hot glue right on site and just add my piece for the top piece I'm going to just measure again right there at the base cut the piece and then just add it to the top then I'll just add another one and a half inch vertical piece to complete the top then I'll just repeat the process to complete the Oh once everything was on I painted it again with the black metallic spray paint and here is the finished project and here are the two versions the
