🍁 NEW 🍁 HIGH END DOLLAR TREE DIYS FOR FALL | FARMHOUSE STYLE HOME DECORAug 24, 2022
hi everyone welcome back to white sparrow living loop 12.6 i'm wendy and today we're making some
treediy i'm using these items you see here and I'm taking some jute twine I'm going to wrap it around the base of my candle holder using a little bit of hot glue and then wrapping it about three or four times and then I'm going to tie a knot right in the front add a little more glue and then I'll take one of these laser cut pieces of wood and I'm going to tie one of those designs on my candle holder at the bottom just tie a knot tuck it in place and I put it off to the side a little bit because then I'm going to make a little loop of yarn of jute wrapping it around my fingers a few times and then taking another piece and tying it in the middle fluffing those little loops so they're nice to spread the glue down and then just cutting the excess jute twine and then place my votive holder right on top now you can glue this down if you're worried about them coming off but I like the idea of being able to remove and change them if I feel like you can also use these tea light holders if you want to
decorate for halloween by painting them black and then adding a sweet gingham bow and then adding these adorable pumpkins i found on the dollar tree these i did a while ago and the wooden boxes i added to the bottom to give more height and then to make sure my jack-o-lanterns would stay in place i just pushed a jenga block on top of the candle holder then added some hot glue and put the jack-o'-lantern on top of that, it fits snug like a bug in a rug and then you could add some battery operated tea lights which you can see here.
I have absolutely nothing to show for my Halloween theme because I don't have anything, but I think these are great. cute and I know the kids will like them because you can put some sweets in there too it's super cute and super easy but if you want to be a bit more fancy you can use these votive holders add your candles and the little embellishment makes it so perfect for
fall. I love how they turned out and I hope you like them too. For this dollar tree diy I'm using two of these little circular hanging things what are they called wall vases yeah 10 wall vases and then I forgot what was in that other frame but I'll tell you the part more difficult? part of this project was removing the stickers from the front of these so i used my heat gun and cricut squeegee that came with it but it didn't really work very well. it was the easiest to use one of these dollar tree razor blade contraptions.
I had already planned to paint the front of these because this was really scratching them. I don't know how anyone else managed. so it had stayed there a lot too, but then i scraped it up with my sanding block to get the sticky stuff off and then started painting them on with my white chalk paint. I gave him that coat and I'm going to paint the inside as well. I want them to look like this. pumpkins and originally I had planned to do two different shades of orange because I'm decorating with the traditional oranges, greens and browns but I didn't have pumpkin chalk paint so I went ahead and did my greens and blues I used pool for the blue color and celery for the green and I'm going to paint it as close to a pumpkin as possible so I'm just doing these lines that are going up and down and like they're shaped like an eyeball and then I'm just going to mix all of that up and adding some black with a smaller brush to give it some shading, i guess it's supposed to give the idea of a pumpkin so anyways once i'm done i'll add some. more white, I thought these colors were too bright so I wanted them a little bit darker, it didn't quite turn out the way I wanted it, but I think it's still very pretty and it was very easy, so to make the stem of the pumpkin, I'm going to take some scrap stems from an old flower I had. and i took a paper bag and wrapped it around the top and just squeezed it and twisted it.
This isn't going to actually show, but I just wanted to make sure that if any of my strings had some gaps, you'd just see the brown paper bag and it gives it the same idea and color, so I'm just going to get some hot glue to untwist my string and then tape it to the bottom leaving a little bit dangling and then i'm going to cut remove it at the top and then go all the way around my stem now because this stem is wired i'll be able to manipulate and move and bend it however i want , so once I get to the top with my third piece of string I'm going to wrap that around and just make it a little messy and out of control and then hot glue it to the top and shape it into the shape that I I want to and then I'm going to make little slits in the bottom so I can lay it flat on top of my pumpkin tin so I took a sheet of burlap and it already has a piece of wire attached to it. do a so I'm just going to wrap that around the base of my stem and I didn't even have to glue this but you can if you want because it molded perfectly to one side and I was able to take some of that string. and pull it to look like some messy tendrils or something, so now I'm going to take my gold paint pen and I actually bought this at the dollar tree.
I was very excited to see them and see how they worked and it really worked. alright i'm just going to write thank you on the bottom two of my cans in kind of a messy up and down cursive script and then i took some dollar tree blossoms and tucked them into the sides i didn't feel it too much because i still wanted being able to see the inside of my pumpkin so you could still tell it was a pumkin if you could tell so anyway i'm going to push them to the side and then hang them up and down or diagonally but i think they are adorable and I think they turned out so sweet, I love them. and i hope you like them too for this project i am using a bamboo wreath and some of those same wildflowers i think they are called mini sunflowers i am just going to take a big handful of the different flowers i want to take all the tags added some greenery and I thought I'd like it with a little more at the bottom than the top and then just play around with it this is the easiest wreath you can make and then once I get them into the shape and arrangement I want I'm going to grab them in the middle use a nylon tie and then I took my wire cutters and got rid of the excess stems so they don't show and then I found these very nice little ones that I don't know about gourds that look like dollar tree rattan.
They have different colors that I have seen. I thought they were so adorable so I'm going to add them in the middle, but I'm going to make a big cheery bow using the fold method. I used some burlap ribbons, some of the chevron ribbons, some smaller ones. 5 8 ribbon and even a faux leather ribbon on the 5 8 inches which I thought went perfectly with the pumpkins. Anyway, I'm starting to lose my voice even more. I made two little bundles one with the smaller ones and cut them so I don't have to hold them up and then I put the bigger ones on top, I made little slits in the middle so when I go to move them I can move them easier and then I'm going to use a stem from Chanel for I'll put them together and then add the top one to the bottom one and place them right in the middle wrapping it all the way around holding my little bouquets there and attaching the bow to my wreath and here it is all finished and I love how this turned out i love neutral colors i love a neutral crown a and it looks like its ready for the fall season and it looks so cozy.
I love how it turned out and I hope you like it too for this dollar tree. I found these cute leaf cutouts that have initials on them so they're really pretty but they weren't my colors and I'm going to use my little widget again to get all the stickers and paper on it. I just needed to take one side with the paper because I'm going to go around the other side you can also paint these and cover that up but I'm at a critical point here anyway so I just did one side and then I'm going to sand it down and take off all the ickes and i want both stems to be facing each other because one will go to one side of my garland and the other will go to the other side so i didn't want them to be facing the same direction i wanted them to face each other to the other one so now I'm going to take a chipped dollar tree brush use m and white chalk paint and I'm just going to do a dry brush effect.
I tried to do it where it was in the middle coming out so it would look like a leaf you know how the marbling goes and you can add as much or as little as you want I love how it outlines the leaf automatically when brushing so I'm going to set them aside and leave Let them dry and while I have my white chalk paint I found these little acorns on the dollar tree and I was going to leave them the color they are but decided it was going to be a little too dark so I wanted to lighten them and there's a lip on the top of the acorn that you can just Rest the tip of your brush so you get that nice finished edge and so I'm going to paint all my acorns white and then I have this set of three really big needles from Walmart and I'm going to use the most big. one and i took my pumpkins which are wrapped in burlap in a beige orange and a very pretty sage green i am going to take the clips out of all of them and then what i did was i took some jute twine and measured on my mantel to see how long i wanted each of my garlands to last and i want them to hang so i made them the size they should be before i start adding my pieces if that makes sense so i show you here there are three different lengths and then, That way, when you put them together, they will be covered in three different lengths.
I'll see that at the end I guess so now I'm going to thread my twine onto my big fat needle and then I'm going to stick it right to the top of my burlap pumpkins and then pull it out. on the other side now i don't know about you but i just talked about it right now i'm getting chills because when i push the needle in and then it starts to pull the thread there's a sound it makes that's like nails on a blackboard i don't know , it gives me the creeps when I thread it through the styrofoam anyway so I'm off ng to string all my pumpkins in the order I want and I can adjust them once I hang them but these are so cute all in one row and then I'm going to do the same thing with my acorns again omg just looking at this I'm getting goosebumps and I'm just going to go through the top now the top of the acorns those are hard for so you won't be able to go through them, but only if you go right under them.
I'll get to that styrofoam and then you can thread them onto your jute twine and then I took a 5 8 inch ribbon and I'm going to cut them into five inch strips and then I took a piece of jute twine and I'm going to tie that onto the medium and I made some little poofies I don't know just to add a little bit of ribbon and color to the bottom thread of my garland and then I took some of the leaves off the dollar tree stems and I'm going to duplicate some of them on top and just did individual leaves on some of them. in different directions and then I'm going to cut my stem so you don't see them after a while and just string them alternating with the ribbons and the leaves until they're nice and full and this is going to be my bottom layer so once I Once I've threaded all my twine through the pretty ones, I'm going to take the ends of each of my pieces of twine and line them up and then tie a knot at the end of both. sides and then I'm going to staple that to the back of my sheet using my staple gun and then I'm going to take a hook from the dollar tree wall hanging kit and I'm going to open up the long part and flatten it out and then I'm going to take the top and I'm going to bend it at a 90 degree angle and I'm just using my needle nose pliers and it's a very soft metal so you can do this pretty easily but now what I'm going to do is attach my L hook now with a thumbtack so I used a piece of painter's tape to hold it down because I need about four hands to do this and then I'm going to take a thumbtack and using my needle nose pliers I'm going to hold that in place place in the hole that's already on this little hook and then I'm going to pound it into the wood and then I'm going to remove my tape and now I've got a little piece hanging out and I'm going to show you how we hang this in just a second so now I'm taking my paint pen black and on a leaf and to put give thanks and then on the last page I'm going to put the lord, of course, you can use stickers or your vinyl cutting machine, whatever you have, or even stencils.
I know Dollar Tree is getting really good at their stencil game, but I'm just using my fake calligraphy and a little bit of that. ray done
stylelettering at the top and you don't even have to put words here if you don't want to i think the leaves are pretty enough with nothing at all but i want to praise jesus and thank you so i'm going to add it here like this that now is the time to hang it up and if you see I have a wooden shelf I'll put it over the topand because I don't even know why but it just stays there it's the perfect balance and actually I had planned to use another tack to get into that top hole but when I put it there it just stayed I think it's a matter of weight. physics i don't know and then i'm going to adjust my leaves and all my beauties so they're nicely spaced and i get them exactly how i want them and here it is all finished and i love how it turned out i love these colors.
I'm really glad I painted my acorns because it really would have been a lot darker than I intended and there's a lot of white and glitter here so I love it. I hope you have enjoyed these projects. and if you did don't forget to give it a thumbs up comment let me know what you think hope everyone has a blessed day and remember to always be the light bye.
