Stenciled Number Pillows

If you follow me on Infarrantly Creative or have been around KOD for some time, you know I have a little (okay… a big) thing for making pillows. One of my favorite time savers is using ready-made covers from IKEA just like Erika from Retropolitan did to create these number pillows. Since the covers cost just a few dollars each, they are still cost-effective for the DIYer and provide a great starting point for stenciling and embellishing. In just an hour, Erika was able to make all four of these stenciled number pillows!

Patterned Monogram Letters

We all love a good monogram, and Angie from The Country Chic Cottage for Crafts Unleashed shows how to make them come to life with some scrapbook paper and Mod Podge. It’s really as simple as cutting and gluing! And with all the craft paper options out there, the possibilities are pretty much endless. Why be limited by store bought letters when you can design your own with a scene you love?

Painted Canvas Art Letters

Mary from At Home on the Bay is a lady who loves artwork. Combine artwork AND letters, and she’s hooked! Mary made these artistic letters by covering paper mache letters with “paintings” printed on fabric. Even with purchasing several materials, Mary still made all five letters for only $20. I love this fun and fresh take on the typography trend!

Number Art Nightstand

For her “Big Guy’s” thirtieth birthday, Dana from Crafted Niche surprised him with a nightstand she picked up off of Craigslist and refabbed with some cool number art. Dana used a projector to trace on the number design and then painted it in with homemade chalk paint. While the outside is pretty amazing, Dana also customized the inside with dividers to hold the Big Guy’s beloved sunglass collection. She definitely gets some awesome girlfriend bragging rights for this gift!

Thrift Store Pillow with Applique

You know I always love a good rescue, and this pillow from Lora at Craftivity Designs is just that! Many wouldn’t have seen the potential in the old pillow Lora picked up at the thrift store, but she knew with a mini-makeover it could really shine in her guest bedroom. Lora used iron-on interfacing to add “a graphic and modern touch” of typography. Now it has just the perfect mix of vintage and modern she so loves!

“HOME” Word Art

Pottery Barn’s Noel Wall Art has been one of the most beloved and recreated holiday pieces over the past couple of years. After making one of her own for Christmas, Sarah of Simply Sarah played off the idea to create a piece that could have a home on her shelf throughout the year. The large letters are great for making a statement on a wall or shelf like Sarah’s. Her entire living room is gorgeously decorated, but my eyes were immediately drawn over to the sign.

Numbered Pails

After purchasing a set of numbered pails from Pottery Barn, Laura from Top This Top That realized it was a project she could have easily tackled herself. So why not save a friend a few bucks instead? Laura recreated the look with inexpensive craft store pails, vinyl numbers, and spray paint. I love these little pails for storing smalls items on a shelf or even kids’ craft supplies in a playroom. Laura says, “This project is as easy as 1,2,3.” {Wink}

Letter Gallery Wall

Over the years, Elaine from Creating Wonderful Spaces had collected a few decorative wall letters at bargain prices. When she saw a gallery wall layout from Pottery Barn with a letter theme, she knew it was the perfect inspiration for her own wall.  She hit up the Goodwill for cheap frames and was able to [...Read More]
