Be “leaf” in yourself…so you won’t “fall” behind.
(did I just hear you groan)
I hope not…because who doesn’t love “acorny” joke.
Even though sometimes they can be kind of “squirrly.”
….except for this one (hee hee)
Happy almost fall and have a “gourd”eous day.
It’s trash to treasure day today here on the blog and I’m joining some of my friends for some fun “trashformations.”
And the best part of mine….it came out of the trash.
We had just finished cutting plenty of this for the house and there were extra molding odds and ends.
I saved them from the trash and thought….“I “can” turn them into something.”
And I was right.
Here’s my something that I finally made…..
…sure glad I kept on “truckin’.”
(total aside: don’t you love it when the jokes are so bad that you have to underline them)
DIY Wood Block Letters
random pieces of wood molding
random paint colors leftover from projects
Step 1: Cut random pieces of molding to different sizes
Perfection is not the goal.
(total aside…I love any project where perfection is not on the list of supplies)
Step 2: Paint pieces with random paint colors left over from projects
The more random…the better.
If it looks too uniform….the paint isn’t random enough.
Distress random painted pieces of molding with sandpaper.
Step 3: Hot glue random chip board letters
I chose capital letters and lower case letters.
Then hot glue the letters to the pieces of molding.
(total note to self: take more pictures of random chip board letters….they look like pieces of art)
You can spell fall or joy or your name or a quote or even a fall joke.
The skies the limit.
I don’t want to “squash” any ideas you might have.
Total pun intended.
and a guest host will be post our favorite Trash to Treasure projects.
This month At the Picket Fence is joining us!
Hope you like trash as much as we do!
