Feb 27, 2020
Hi guys, welcome to my channel today is the

look

for

less

and I can't wait to share what I did. My first project for

less

comes from Josh and Maine, they were selling them for about $15, they're not for sale and I know we can. make them for pennies super cheap super affordable pennies and the

look

is identical so you're going to go ahead and take a black foam core board, cut it to size. I made a 5 by 7 size and then for the corners I just matched it up. on my cutting mat and then from corner to corner on the box I cut a nice line on both top corners of my tag, then to create the hole for your string you will take the ruler circle you saw there and you'll just I'm going to cut after you've traced it, then once you've cut everything out, you're going to go ahead and paint it now.

I go for that chalkboard look and how I do that with paint is I mix cream with black it has more of a slate gray color instead of using black and white I feel like it looks a little more washed out once the paint is completely dry , then I'll take my pencil and draw the number for our family members, so I'll do the number 5. I thought it would be a very nice year. -round to display somewhere in my house on a shelf on a table but i love the way it looks and this is what friends i know a lot of people have crickets or silhouettes but there are a lot of people who don't have them yet i have them , I have them in my house and I'm so thankful to have them and I feel so blessed to have them but I want everyone to see that if you don't have a super fancy clipper using paint and a fine tip the brush is all you need because you can get the same look and you know maybe at first you will feel like painting on my hand is a bit tricky but the more you practice the more you keep painting and trying better and better you're going to get it and I keep playing with it until I get the look I want and the other tip is that whenever you paint white on black, sometimes the black can bleed through a bit, so I make sure to go over it a few times to make sure it looks nice and crisp.

I like it when it has that nice, crisp look. white look on the slate gray and then at the end and the oh I'm taking my time because it's smaller letters and then the little dot I'm just going to flip my brush over and touch a little dot with the end of my brush so again don't be intimidated about having to go out and buy machines in order to create this look you can hand paint them and save yourself even more money and this is really a super cheap project to do and it makes such a nice impact on your decorative shelves now I'm going I'm going to take some brown paint and I'm just going to hit a couple of corners here and there to give it that rustic look like it's been weathered by the salt air and then continue with that coastal farmhouse look which I love and know is also Yami's Jam and Style on Her Channel I'm going to take some of this nautical rope I picked up from the Dollar Tree, slip it on, wind it up, and then twist it and tie a knot at the top and then carry on in that good weather.

Beach feeling. I'm going to fray the ends of the rope. Now this rope came from the Dollar Tree as well as the other supplies I'm going to use in this video but I love this rope because there are three ropes twisted together and when you untwist them it triples the value of this rope so it's a really cool rope , you can use it very thick or you can reduce it now. I decided to make one more version of these tags just to show you all of that. These have so much potential. I think they are so cute to put in your house.

I'm going to take some more white paint and see here. I'm not doing any pencil sketches. I'm just giving this out freely and this is just come with my product time singing and practicing and just enjoying hand painting letters and numbers so I'll take my time and write the word welcome and feel free to write it first with pencil and then paint it now a fun tip is to take the greenery you can get from the

dollar

tree

and glue the ends together and this is how i create a mini vine from the

dollar

tree

right now there are

spring

flowers that are just putting out their bunches of flowers they have these leaves on them have all the colors pink blue white yellow and these leaves are so cute and when you glue their tips together you can create a vine so i am gluing them together to create a little wreath i am going to add a lace bow this lace is also from Dollar Tree and then I'm going to add another one of those ropes to give it that nautical feel but still have that cottage style that I think a lot of us We love it and then I'm going to age it one more time with that brown paint to give it that saltier weathered beachy rustic look if you don't know the look for less it's created by Yami from the Latino next door another one of my very dear friends who started YouTube almost instantly same time i did her and her co-host which is Natalie from layout to 9th are putting together this challenge there is a playlist that is linked under my description box make sure to go check them out they should be at the top from the playlist as well as all the other girls playing along with this challenge later look less I was dying when I saw this price I can't believe this was selling for $49 and was on sale for $39 because Dollar Tree actually sells succulents starting this time of year, they are $1 for each of these stems.
I picked up some of this Spanish moss and then this white bowl in her kitchen all of these together were much cheaper than what they were selling for it at the Pottery Barn and I think it's a good imitation if you love a succulent look in your home for the plants, so grab a regular pair of scissors that i know are starting to be almost out of the gate that you don't mind using to cut some plastic cut off to the side of the edge and just take your time to chop as close as you can and then cut the handles they actually cut pretty easy I'm showing you in real speed how fast they come off and then you're going to take some foam squares and you're going to glue them to the bottom of that container, then you're going to take some moss . to separate it, massage it a bit because when it's in the packaging it's too tight to fit in there so you just pull it apart and then you'll hot glue it onto the styrofoam so it doesn't. make it droop over time, then you'll just take your succulents and push them back down into the styrofoam again. succulents at Pottery Barn and they had this one I have here they sell three of those for $20 I think that's what $25 might have been if you buy them at dollar tree you can buy three for $3 go get some succulents its worth it if you're new to my channel and you come from the playlist welcome my name is Heidi half way through I live Heidi and I post Monday Wednesday and Friday Monday and Friday I do craft videos I do this thing called friend on Friday and then on Wednesdays clean with Me is fine, let's move on to the third and last project, which is this topiary.
I couldn't believe it was originally $1.99 and now we're making it much cheaper. I am very excited about this project because it is a completely new product in the career of Dollar Tree. straight to your dollar trees and collect them just don't buy them all so I can collect them anyway they are super cool they are these spheres that are made out of metal wiring and if you have been shopping there for a while you will know they are th The same wires that they use for their crown rings so what I'm going to do for starters is cut this sign out now it's just because I didn't want to run out to the store and buy another one because I actually sell these smaller ones but I just need a base for my topiary so I'm going to cut this out and then I'm going to reattach one of the sides so I can get the right size for my topiary base again they sell these smaller signs and I was being lazy and didn't want to drive to the store plus they didn't want to spend another dollar.
I already had this one and knew I could cut it down to size so if you have one handy. that's already smaller then you're all set but once I've figured it all out and scaled it down to size I'm going to take some e6000 and some hot glue to make sure it holds it in place while the e6000 heats up. dry and then I'm just going to take this candle holder and I'm going to hot glue it at speed 6000 to one of these plastic pots that they have at Doll. ar Tree again all these supplies are from Dollar Tree and this is very affordable.
I spent nine bucks to make these things instead of an insane $1.99, so once I have my base and everything set up, I'm going to grab a piece of foam core. and you can see here that it's a little bit smaller than the base and I want to be able to make sure that the top of the planner and the glass adhere to the bottom well but if I try to do East 6000 or hot glue on the core piece of foam that will eventually come off and break so what I decided to do was trace the base of the candle holder the glass on the foam core I cut it out and then hot glued it and then took some e6000 and put it on the base which is a thicker and harder surface to be able to hold on to compared to the foam core added a little more hot glue around and then inserted the glass stem into the base this will allow it to really dry and bond well now these are the flower stems they have now these are the ones i also use to make that vine earlier on the label they are called wildflowers and i love them this other flower here that i am holding was actually around the fall time i think they carried it year round i have seen it for a long time but i am going to remove those little green ones you just saw me holding there now to make sure your spear stays in place you are going to open it to your taste and then you're going to get your Hot Glue out and just glue it in place now.
I want to create it to look like dried vines over time, like it would look on a regular topiary outside of the stems and vines, so I'm going to take some twine first. and I'm going to lightly wrap each of his sides and then at the top I'm going to create a ball effect by looping around Abed, coming back down, looping around the bottom, coming back up. plus adding more to the top until i get the desired look i want for this topiary and then once it's all done ne you're just going to cut it down so you don't see anything weird you know 20 and stick it out and glue it instead this is what the top looks like I think it looks so cute like this especially when we start adding all our greenery and flowers so you can go ahead and just remove all the flowers from your bundle cut the wires and cut the ends to separate them everything you don't want any of them should be bunched up because we want it to look like their vines entangling this sphere like you would see it outside in a garden so one by one you're going to take your hot glue don't burn your fingers connected a few times and then you're going to put in a greenery, maybe a flower, maybe a little more of that greenery and you're going to go all the way, blend the mix together and keep it flowing naturally and pretty, and I didn't do it the same way. length on each side of the sphere some were less a little bit lower some all the way to the top that knot I made with the twine and you'll see at the end when I show it all wrapped up with all this greenery how you don't want it to be so obviously consistent you want it to look like you know some are growing better than others and it makes it look more real and natural so when someone sees it in your house and they'll think wow that's great you have something like that in your house and you'll say i did i did it myself so here's the finished look and you can see like i said some go all the way to the top and some don't now once it was all dry i spray painted it black so it would look like cast iron. we had as our inspiration and then I'm going to take a little bit lighter than black, a very, very dark slate gray.
I'm going to dry brush some of that paint because we want to create that cast iron look on our planter. and then you know just add some black where you feel like it got a little too light because it's supposed to make it look like it's black but you want it to look like it's cast iron and then again because I love this rustic look and this is the theme of what I'm doing with this video and all these projects that I'm just going back with a little bit of brown paint tapping into the corners here and there and then mixing it with the black to create that really rustic look in the weather, salty sea air looks once it's all dry and you've gone all the desired places in your pot you're ready to start filling it so I'm going to take a square of foam cut it to size make sure it it fit really well because we want it to last a long time and then I'm going to hot glue everything in place.
I'll also make sure to fill in the sides to make sure it's really snug there and the hot glue will hold it well. Another piece of advice is that I don't want it to be too high up there because I don't want it to clash with the topiary. make sure it's oksettled now. I'm going to slow it down for the next part because I want everyone to really see what I'm doing and I don't want to go too fast so I'm taking a piece of wire bending it in half like this and then I'm going to put it on the end of the topiary going down into the pot and then I'm going to hold it as close as I can to the sphere of the topiary and I'm going to just twist it to create a nice tight twisted piece of wire at the top and it's doing this because the topiary on yeah it will come off easily if you just hot glue it or eat 6 mil so what I'm what I'm doing is creating this wire holder and then I'm putting some glue here on my foam and I'm going to take that wire and I'm going to push it down into the foam and it will help hold put it in there even more snug and secure without it falling off, then once you have it in place you can look for glue around the sides where the stain touches the pot and but will stay in place. n there for a long time and you won't have to worry about it coming apart or rolling when someone hits it once you have everything glued in place then you'll grab some ferns which they also have at the Dollar Tree right now.
I tell them that there are not so many beautiful flowers. I am so impressed this year. I think you'll hear me say that in a lot of my videos. I will try to contain myself. above making that comment every time but i get so excited about each new season that they keep putting out better and better stuff so you're going to go ahead and put some of those ferns in and then you're also going to take some of your green moss and fill it in to cover all the foam and then I'm just taking some more of these little wildflower stems and putting them in there now to finish that farmhouse nautical beach look I'm going to take some of that thick rope and wrap it around the base the other reason I should I decided to do this I just cleaned up the bottom base look and just I don't know I personally liked how it looked you don't have to do this part but I really liked it I thought it would be it looked really nice when it was done I'm going to take another string and I'm going to hot glue the back of it so it stays in place and then I'm going to tie a simple knot in the front and fray it . rope ends to create that nice nautical look again.
I think I pretty much have that farmhouse beach look, coastal look in mind just because we're. I'm thinking warmer weather. It's very cold right now in Missouri. I miss my California weather that I grew up with my whole life so this is the final look if you haven't already be sure to hit the subscribe button so you don't miss out on all my upcoming craft and clean up videos with me. on wednesdays i love having this youtube channel and all the friends i've been making lately have all made so many co comments especially on my last video about what's been going on with our son.
