Terracotta Painted Pots

I decided it was time to try my hand at some crafts again in my spare time.
Because I love to garden I chose to paint some clay pots from inspiration perusing on Pinterest. There is always unlimited inspiration there, sometimes more than we need to see.I decided by the colors of acrylic paint I had on hand.
Gold, of course, being a favorite, its shiny and I love sparkle, like diamonds!  Terracota-Painted-Pots.
Now for me, anything in crafting has to be fun and easy and fast. So, I started with the basic terracotta pot, painted the rim “gold, letting it dry, I painted again. Then I painted the base with pretty turquoise. After letting it dry, (in the desert you dont have to wait long) I used a coarse bristle brush to make the swashes of gold all the way around. I will finish with a coat of Krylon Clear spray paint to seal the acrylic paint and protect the pot from water damage.

kitchen, the possibilities are endless. What other uses do you think of?

Forget Hobby Lobby: Home Projects You Can Do Yourself

DIY activities, projects, and home improvements are rapidly becoming a craze throughout the United States, which is great news for creative homeowners but also big box craft stores that stock and sell the desired materials to complete a project. Unfortunately, many DIY projects seem to rely too much on making items that aren’t really necessary. After all, how many mason jar candles can a person truly have? And if you want something truly different, it often feels like the only option is to go to Hobby Lobby.Forgot Hobby Lobby Home Projects You Can Do Yourself

Sometimes it feels like Hobby Lobby has a monopoly on individuals because it sells all sorts of decorations and craft projects for easy decoration. What are you supposed to do if you want to make a major creative change but don’t need more stuff? Well, forget Hobby Lobby because here are some home DIY projects you can actually do yourself that take up little space, spruce up an entire home, and can even improve the value and attractiveness of a house.

Install Wall Hooks

 An easy DIY project that spruces up a home and creates more space is to install wall hooks or a wall-hanging coat rack to keep clothes, hats, and other items off the floor. Hooks and hangers can be bought from any regular store or made yourself through a little bit of creative metal or woodworking.

All you need to do to hang a wall hook is to find a good place and make sure there are no joists behind the desired spot on the wall. Then, installation is as easy as screwy the hook into the wall. These simple devices will reduce clutter and ensure you have more floor or closet space for other items like shoes, carpets, and maybe even a bookshelf.

Faux Flooring

Faux flooring is a major hit in modern interior decorating because it can be placed in a day, is easy to clean, and can then be removed without tearing up a room. Some of the most popular flooring types are laminate, fake tile, and floating wood. Laminate is easy to place like stickers since all you have to do is remove the paper on the back and lay down boards or tiles with the sticky side facing down. Fake tile, meanwhile, can come in one long sheet that you cut to accommodate a room and then place. Floating wood, meanwhile, is a series of boards that interlock with one another like a puzzle, forming an attractive floor with little work.

These DIY projects can take as little as a day and can be removed as easily as they were placed if you want to redecorate once again.

Sand and Smooth Wood

If you unfinished or untreated wooden furniture, door frames, or cabinets, then you know splinters and breakage can be a problem. As a DIY project, consider investing in a planer to smooth out edges and prevent further damage. Furniture and frames can then be sealed, painted, and decorated in a new style to match your creative whims. This is a beneficial DIY project because it improves safety, the appearance of the home, and can also raise the house’s value since it is more modern.

Splash the Paint

One final, popular DIY project is to bring out the paint. You don’t need more mass-produced decorations to make your home warm and inviting. Add splashes and pops of color throughout your home by painting the splash guard behind sinks and stoves, recoloring the door and window frames, or even just adding a new color to a well-used room.

You can even make your own art to hang instead of buying something from the store, which adds an individual touch to any room. If you have children, consider having them make a unique painting using their hands and feet, or just allow them to go creative. Over time, it can become a treasured or prized family heirloom.


DIY doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive, and it doesn’t mean you need to fill your home with unnecessary physical decorations. If you want to make a major change but have little time, space, or money, consider doing one of these four projects without needing a visit to Hobby Lobby for unnecessary decorations!

Everyone needs more shelving in their home. If you have stacks of books and nowhere to put them, the perfect solution is a floating bookshelf or two. When you don’t have any more bookshelf or cabinet space, floating bookshelves can be made very simply by fitting a slim metal bracket onto your chosen wall.

It’s the perfect way to liven up a dull space and won’t cost very much at all. Even better, when you’re sick of the look, you can just paint over it quickly and easily.
