North Pole Christmas Sign

Autie from iCandy Handmade got her porch ready for Christmas this year with the addition of a North Pole sign she DIYed. The really fun part for a hoarding, repurposing, outside-the-box thinking girl like myself is that Autie created her sign from a freezer door from her daughter’s play kitchen. I love that rock-what-you-got mentality! And isn’t her sign adorable?

Now, you may not find any monsters creeping out of the toilet in designer catalogs, but this Halloween decorating idea gave me a giggle so I had to share! Morena for Crafts Unleashed designed her own three-eyed, wiggly armed monster, cut it out of vinyl, and popped it on the toilet tank for a little Halloween prank. Morena says, “It would also work on windows, cabinets, and most any other opening you can think of.  Every person in my home has laughed when they see my little monster Halloween decorations. Have fun spooking your favorite people this Halloween!”

“Kitchen” Wall Sign

DIY Kitchen wall sign inspired by Pottery Barn

In the midst of a kitchen remodel, Taryn from Design, Dining + Diapers has pretty much everything kitchen-related on the brain. And what could be more fitting for a kitchen than a “KITCHEN” wall sign?!? Taryn created her wall art for a mere $4 using a frame she had kicking around, black and white vinyl, and her Silhouette. I can say from experience that the Silhouette is the handiest tool around when it comes to creating signs. It makes it SO easy!
