s our first one is using this wooden frame 3 8 by 10 canvases some floral moss some jute twine from

Dollar

Tree

and a few other items I'll explain as we go the first thing I'm going to do is give this wood frame just not a solid coat but kind of a rustic looking coat of white Waverly chalk paint and you'll see I'm also going to make sure to paint the inside and outside edges of the frame for a completed look next I'm taking three of these eight-by-ten stretched canvases from the

Dollar

Tree

and I am painting them with my Waverly chalk paint in the color truffle I'm not going to need to paint the edges and you'll see why in just a moment now because I'm going for that rustic look I'm not worried that the paint is completely solidly covering the canvases if it's a little streaky that's even better so I did a google image search and I believe I just put in flower outline bird outline and butterfly outline I printed these out on cardstock and I'm just cutting them out I'm using these as a stencil for the three images that I'm going to paint on the center of these canvases I decided my canvases weren't quite...

rustic-looking enough so I decided to add just some dry brush streaks of white chalk paint over the truffle Brown once it was dry once the canvases were dry the next step was to take a staple remover and remove all the staples from the back of the canvases and then I'm going to remove the canvases from the wooden frame next I'm taking some hot glue or some wood glue and gluing all three of these wood frames together and then I'm simply cutting the excess canvas from around each of my brown areas that are painted and actually you could cut right up to the brown because part of it will be behind the frame now this next step was lots of fun but a little messy and it does take some time you've seen me use this moss before and I'm just taking some a little area at a time and I'm going to now cover the front only of my wooden frames with the floral moss sorry my glasses keep getting in the way but you can see what I'm doing here just do a little area at a time and use more Moss than you need so that it kind of protects your fingers from the hot glue once you've done the entire thing I just kind of lightly rub and pull off any moss that is hanging and not fully attached you just want to be able to see the outline of each of the frames and you don't want it too much covering the center of course if you find any areas that are a little bald go ahead and cover those up now for my next step I have each of my stencils on my canvases I'm just...

tracing with a pencil and then I'm going to paint them paint the outline shape with celery chalk paint it's a light green I love using it in the

spring

and I think it just looks really nice on this dark brown background so like I said here's the celery chalk paint and using a very small tipped brush I'm doing the outline this here is the flower there are other ways you could do this if you wanted you could paint the canvas the celery then when that's dry set the stencil down and then paint the brown around it so that when you lift up the stencil you're left with the celery I just chose to do it this way for this project and it really didn't take too too long I think the key is to have a brush with a small enough set of bristles so that you can get especially on the butterfly and the bird in those small areas but the idea is not for these to look realistic it's just I don't know do you call it a motif where it's just kind of the shape with no dimension and just these three to remind us of

spring

so once I had painted all three of my shapes I'm going to go ahead now and glue the canvas to the back of each wooden frame again sorry about my head in there sometimes where my camera is makes it a little difficult so as you can see just the brown part of the canvas does fit behind the frame and so I'm just pressing each of these on so that it's I believe it's called a reverse canvas where now the actual canvas is on the back of...

the frame but showing through to the front if that makes sense so we've got the butterfly the flower and then the bird at the bottom and now all three of them are attached to our moss-covered frame that we made out of the wood frames from each of the canvases here sorry it's a little out of frame I'm just taking two pieces of jute twine and I'm hot gluing them to the top canvas the back of the top canvas I think I'm going to scoot it down here in just a second there we go so using my little finger protector all of you guys made sure I was using that so what I'm gonna do is I'm going to glue one side of the string and then I'm going to lay my wood frame remember that frame we painted white at the very beginning I'm gonna lay that down and so each of these jute twines is gonna go around the top of the wood frame and then glue it back to the back of the canvases if that makes sense so these three pictures are going to hang in the center of the white wooden frame you'll see what I mean here in just a moment so here are the three pictures hanging from the frame I decided to use two of these metal words in this three pack I'm using the word welcome right here and then

spring

right here and I just hot glued those on to the moss to finish my project for my second project I'm taking this birdhouse shelf some moss some chalk paint this glass jar some wood hearts and some jute twine the first thing I'm going to do I got this for $2 at...
Goodwill it just stands on a table top I'm removing all this moss the fake birds and the wood heart that is attached at the bottom I really wanted a neutral

farmhouse

look for this birdhouse so I'm taking my mineral chalk paint and giving the entire thing one or two coats to cover over all of the other painting that was done very beautifully but just does not fit my decor style at all once the mineral chalk paint was dry I took some masking tape and I'm going to tape off around the two peaked roof areas so that I can paint those with my darker gray called elephant you I did also decide to paint this shelf part with the darker gray also just to give it a little bit more dimension here I have my waverly chuck paint in the color white and two of these wood hearts that I also showed in my

thrift

store

haul I'm just going to give each one a coat of white chalk paint on the front and the sides and this is always the fun part taking off the tape and seeing the nice crisp paint lines with the two different colors of grey paint on the birdhouse next I'm taking this glass jar from

Dollar

Tree

and I only want the base of it I liked the square shortness of it so I'm removing all of the metal pieces from the jar and just a little bit of googan on this piece paper towel gets the rest of that sticky residue from the sticker off of the bottom to decorate the top of the jar just a little bit I'm just taking some of my jute twine from Walmart this is a very...
end of my roll I'll have to go back and get some more but just using little dots of hot glue every once in a while I'm attaching the jute twine starting at the top and I'll just wrap it around three or four times just to cover that top part of the jar you and to finish off the top part of the birdhouse I'm just hot gluing these two white hearts covering over the holes that were left from the original design of this birdhouse and then I'm taking one more little piece of the jute twine and just making a simple bow that I will then hot glue to the front of my jar and here is the finished product I love how this turned out just with some simple changes for the third project I'm taking this around wood piece I found at the

thrift

store

some of these wood ball legs I'm not sure what they're called pegs of some sort and this printable that I found online I decided that I was going to make a footed riser these are very popular right now in

farmhouse

decor so I'm removing the little feet that were on the bottom because the bottom is now going to be the top of my project I'm just kind of laying out where I'm going to put these little feet they are flat on the one side I pulled these off of another project that I started and never quite finished so now I have sanded the bottom so that everything is nice and flat and I'm going to give this a coat of waverly chalk paint in the color color pool I love this light robin's egg blue I used...
it last

spring

for a couple of my DIY projects and I really like that I can bring in some color with this color of paint but still have it be a neutral tone I decided to also paint the feet blue but I'm doing them in a navy blue this is acrylic paint so as you can see it doesn't cover quite as well as chalk paint so I did have to do two coats on these little five little feets that I'm going to glue to the bottom of my riser here again you see my technique of using a skewer in order to be able to paint and Here I am hot gluing my dried feet to the bottom of the riser I did paint both sides of the wooden round piece with the pool and hot gluing the dark navy feet to the bottom and here it is all flipped over it's it's nice and flat and I found this printable online it is a little small for this size wood so I'm going to attempt to free draw the reef and the words with my pencil I'm going to link in the description box and if I can figure out how to do a card right here at the top I will link a video where I show how to transfer wording to your project but this was pretty basic just drawing some circles adding some random leaves with a paint pen and then writing out the words the great thing about pencil is you can always erase and go back and fix it so first I'm writing the print home and getting that centered and then I will add the bless this in cursive and here's how the finished product turned out I love how you can just dress these up...
for your decor my last project for today is this planter bucket for sewing that we found I'm also going to use a pizza pan and a splatter screen and some chalk paint and spray paint I should say first I'm going to take my black Waverly chalk paint in the color ink and I'm going to paint the legs of this I don't even know what to call it I'm gonna call it a sewing basket apparently what a lot of you told me is that in the day these also came with a wooden lid that was hinged that would a flap back I guess so you could kind of either take the lid all the way off or just have half of it but here's what it looks like I'm also painting the handle with my black chalk paint and just being really careful that it doesn't flop down and get paint on other parts I decided for my

farmhouse

decor I was going to do white and black for this item and I'm going to turn it into a little side table you'll see what I do to make the lid so to make the lid for my table I'm using this splatter screen that has this little handle and also a pizza pan I measured this beforehand to make sure that it would fit on the top of my bucket and what I'm going to do with these two items is after removing its a little handle from the splatter screen I'm going to take the pizza pan and the splatter screen outside to the garage and give them a really good coat of black spray paint now I'm taking my white Waverly chalk paint and giving kind of a light coat of...
white chalk paint to the top middle and bottom sections of my bucket all the way around and then those raised areas the two raised areas will become black so before I paint the two black stripes I'm going to use my tape like I did with the birdhouse candle holder and just put some tape on either side of both of those raised areas so that when I paint them black there will be nice crisp lines between the black and white chalk paint and again the best part is removing the tape and seeing the nice crisp lines between the two different paint colors you'll notice that my black chalk paint on this project is pretty solid whereas I kept to the white kind of light and streaky and rustic looking so to finish my lid I'm taking some of my 6000 glue this time I tried these little tubes from Walmart and I'm just dotting it around the rim of the bottom of the splatter screen and then what I'm going to do a little in the middle where that screw is and I'm going to Center it in my pizza pan so this is going to become the lid for my box I bucket whatever so you can put it this way as a lid you can also turn it over and make it flat to use it more as a tabletop so that's how this project turned out I thank you so much for watching and for being a part of my channel please let me know in the comments which of these
