How to Personalize Scout Camp Trunk Using Vinyl

My son is heading out to summer scout camp and one of the things he needs is a trunk to pack all his supplies into.  Now the crafty mom in my knows he needs to label this trunk so he knows which is his at a glance.  The label needs to be able to stay put, not rub off, withstand high and low temperatures, and last for a few years.  Bring on the vinyl letters from Styletech Craft !!



Here is a video on how to cut and use Styletech Craft Vinyl.



I cut the vinyl letters from the glitter (blue and teal) and opal holographic (white) vinyl to write the name Morgan Reed using a Cricut for the top and bottom of his scout storage trunk.



This vinyl is so easy to cut with a Cricut, just set it and cut.  Hardest part is coming up with an idea and design to cut with the wonderful Styletech Craft vinyl!



I actually did 3 projects with this amazing vinyl.  My husband saw that I was cutting the  Styletech Craft Vinyl so he used the left over part of after I pulled out the letter to use as a stencil.


He then used spray paint to make his own labeled trunk!



I also played around with the vinyl on my tumbler and cut out a monogrammed letter E for Erin.  Super easy way to personalize my drinking glass!



Check out the video on how easy this tumbler was to make!



 Styletech Craft  vinyl is so easy to work with and the ideas of what you can use it with are endless!!

Farmhouse Kitchen Decor

I have all these frames I got from some friends and I have been playing with how to use them in fun ways.  Here is one where I turned them into a pair of wall decor art pieces for the kitchen, with a farmhouse rustic feel.



I loved the idea of the honeycomb paper "Sweet as Honey" in the Hazelwood Collection from a collection by 1canoe2 and American Crafts paired with a kitchen theme.  Here is a video on how to make this fun kitchen decor.



The colors were perfect for a rustic look, adding in a little spoon and fork to as the focal point, and then little touches of the cork embellishments just make it all amazing!


Taking an old frame that is gathering dust and re-purposing it for something else is fun, gives your old items some new life.  The paint is easy to sand off to give it that old rustic and weathered look, and it even work amazing on the fork painted black and sanded!


I used my Xyron Creative Station to apply sticky to the back of all the cork pieces to all me to stick them to the frame, it works wonderfully!!

Upcyled Jars with Fringe Trim for Wedding or Hula Party Decor

I love to take something that would normally go in the recycle bin or even the trash and turn it into something fun and useful!  Check out my upcycled jars that can be used for party decor with a little fringe and other cute trims.  Depending on the color and trims used they can be made for weddings or even a hula party!!  Lets start with the hula jars first.


Here is a video on how to make these fun hula jars!


These super cute jars can be used for so many fun events.  First you can use them for just storage of your crafty supplies.  I gave a few of these to my kids teacher for a fun end of year gift!


You can also use them as a vase for flowers!!


Add your plastic cutlery in them for a fun hula summer outdoor or indoor party!


Really you can add just about anything into these fun food safe jars for any type of party, even a kids Moana themed party!!  Here is a jar with straws.


Try adding a few jars together for a cool trio or set as a centerpiece in your hula party!


These jars are so easy to make, just a little fringe from Expo International and some pompom trim and you are set!!  Pick any color of fringe and pompoms to make it your own.  To hold all the layers of fringe and pompom to the jar I used Supertite Universal adhesive.


I also have a coupon code for Supertite glue, it is the liquid glue I used to hold all the embellishments together and onto the cards and it is a wonderful glue that is so much cheaper than other glues out on the market, plus it has less chemicals!!



Coupon for 10% off your Supertite order of $5 or more 

Changing the color the fringe and adding lace and beads to the top bring a whole different feel to this dressed up jar.  New it take on a whole wedding vibe.



Here is a video on how to make these wedding fringe jars.



Using the white fringe with the lace and keeping it all white is just so pretty.  The little bit of beaded fringe at the top just looks so elegant.



You can also add a layer of black around the top of the jar in a bead or braided trim.  Instead of black you can also add a layer of trim that is one of the colors of your wedding.




Such an easy and fun way to make an elegant centerpiece for your wedding, some jars, fringe, and lace!
