Here is another Baby Announcement sign I made. This one is for the Wilson’s. Their babies nursery reminds me of a tree house. They painted a beautiful mural on the wall of a big tree with a couple owls perched on a branch. I really wanted this sign to look like it belonged in that room.
It is on a 9×12 board. Fun and totally personal! Love it!
I saw a sign similar to this on Pinterest and wanted to try my hand at creating one. For more signs available, please check out the Etsy Shop.
Since posting it on Facebook last night, I’ve already had two requests to make similar ones but adding “The ___ Family Welcomes our Friends & Family.” So excited to create something for someone else! Stay tuned for those pictures!
Over the weekend we made a quick trip to Craft Warehouse and scored these! $5 for the both!! With all of the redecorating we’ve been doing in our family room, I realized that we have no where to put an actual Christmas tree… so I decided I needed to make some. I’m going to paint and glitterfy these for our fireplace mantel.
First I started by painting the cones a solid color. I bought a Behr paint sample ($2.50) in the most Christmas green I could find and slapped on two coats.
After letting that dry over night, I used Mod Podge to add glitter. The glitter was a score, only $2 bucks at Joanns, and I used LOT’S of glitter. I wanted to see these Christmas trees across the street!
I followed the same process for the red tree, except that I had a can of red spray paint that I used instead. They might not smell like a real Christmas tree and I certainly will not be able to put presents underneath, but they’ll do 🙂 I’m not quite done with them. I need to make a trip to the Dollar Store and see what kind of tree stand I can come up with. Here is the red one:
I promise to update the post once I have the tree stands and have them placed on the mantel.

I love decorating my house to match the season. This was just a quick (and cheap) update to bring in some warm fall colors. I had this awful vase with bamboo sticks that I had been looking for an excuse to get rid of and I found it!
This was a quick and simple update that cost less than $6 bucks! All of the floral was 70% off at Joann’s . I already had the floral foam, the bucket, the burlap and lace. So it was uber cheap but I love it!
