Hey, y'all! Are ya ready to put together the cutest door hanger you ever did see? This will be a Farmhouse Style Bunny Door Decor piece for the Easter season. It's so super cute easy to make, and I know you'll want to try it!
Items needed for this project:
Next, I painted all three bunny frames and I personally used a blow dryer to dry them, but this paint dries fast so you could just wait if you weren't in a hurry. I did this because the frames are grey, and that would not have blended well with the tan jute twine I would be using for this project.
When all three bunnies were dry I used my jute twine to wrap the bunnies. You can see the video HERE to see this project as I did part of it on a LIVE. I do show how I wrapped the bunnies and this is especially good to see how to make the ears look like two separate ears. It wasn't difficult, just a bit of a challenge in the middle of the ears. I secured the twine with a dab of hot glue on the backside at each point it was wrapped around.
Once wrapped I used my ribbon to make bows for the bunny heads. All my ribbon came from the dollar tree, and the plaid I used was actually leftover from last fall.
Although originally I didn't do this, I ended up dry painting the pallet board white. I also added a piece of larger twine to the back with hot glue to be able to hang this piece on my door. When the white paint was dry I secured all three bunnies to the board with hot glue. I also added a bow to the top of the board and included a carrot (from the dollar tree) in the center of the bow.
This upcycle turned out absolutely adorable. I have a double front door, and I put it on the side that doesn't typically open. It looks great! I love the Farmhouse Style look and it's hard to believe this started out as a cheesy Easter decoration from the dollar tree. I'm super thrilled with how it looks high quality, and the plastic bunny frames blend right in and you cannot tell they're plastic.
I hope you'll try this adorable upcycle and let me know how it goes!

We bought a new house 20 months ago, and I've struggled to fill it. I used to always decorate for the holidays, but when we moved to Florida almost 4 yrs ago, all that ceased. It wasn't because I didn't love it, it was because I simply didn't have the time or money. This year I vowed it would be different.
So I was out junkin' the other day and I came across a yard sale that had a few pieces I snatched up. One of them was a really odd item. It was a rectangular frame with a burlap insert and a big HUGE butter knife on it. It was marked $1 and the frame was real wood so I grabbed it and knew immediately I was turning that piece into an Easter upcycle.
I noticed when I got home the ugly thing had come from Kirkland's and it was $19.99 on sale. Wow! I got my husband's screwdriver and removed that old ugly butter knife that had been bolted onto the picture frame.
I then flipped the frame vertically and began to brainstorm! I needed something pretty simple since the frame was narrow. I opted for making this. I'll tell you how below!
Here's what you'll need to complete this project.
-Second, I cut the letters out and I Mod Podge them to the wood letters and sat them aside to dry.
-Third, I traced my bunny shape onto the backside of the moss sheet with a black SHARPIE and then cut it out.
-Fourth, I cut and tied a cute bow for the bunny's neck.
Then once my letters were dry, I laid it all out and decided where I wanted everything to go. When I was happy with the placement, I hot glued it all onto the burlap board. I decided once I was done that I wanted to add a bit of white accent paint to the frame, and so I did that after I had put it all together, but I suggest finishing your frame before you put your elements into it.
This little cute sign is going to sit in my living room among some other decor I'll likely end up making and talking about as well. I hope you enjoyed this quick little upcycled DIY Farmhouse Style Easter Sign I created today! I hope you'll come back tomorrow where I'm sure to be talking about something else I've created, found, grew, cooked, etc. I'm always doing something, and I love writing about it for y'all!
Until tomorrow, God Bless you all. Please give this blog a like below if you enjoyed it, and leave a comment to let me know if you'll try this, or if you're creating something else, and what that something else is! I'd love to hear about it.
I know it's a day late, and maybe I should have talked about this sooner, but there's always next year, or even the next Holiday, right? I know what you're saying..."What's she talking about? I'm talking about Homemade Valentines. I made some yesterday (yes I realize it was last minute). Seriously, folks, it was on my list of "things to do", but I didn't actually get to it until yesterday. I had more pressing things like chickens, crafting, homeschool, cooking... you get the picture. So I thought I'd pop on here and show you the adorable little Valentines I made for our little Valentines. I hope you love them as much as I do!
So, I'm sort of a procrastinator, have I mentioned that? I try not to be, but listen y'all, it's a hard life doing all the things and I do the best I can. (I know a lot of y'all can relate), and if you can't, more power to you mommas who have it goin' on more than I do! So we were at Walmart earlier this week and I spent about 15 minutes in the Valentine section looking at everything and it just all seemed so extreme. You know I'm a minimalist, and that entire section was just over the top. It's Valentine's y'all, not Christmas, and my kids do not need a ton of sugar, they get enough as is, so what to do? I asked my husband, "What's the kids' favorite candy?" Please don't give me grief because I didn't know; listen, I have too much to remember already! So he looked at me with a grin and said, "SOUR PATCH KIDS" and I thought, that'll do.
We headed up front near the registers and grabbed four of the movie theatre style boxes of the SOUR PATCH KIDS, and headed home where I already knew I had the other things to make some cute and creative Valentines the kids would love. Now we're not going to really talk much about the fact that I waited until actual Valentine's Day to make them. Well, okay, we're talking about it a little because I feel a bit guilty for waiting, but hey, I got them done, and that's what matters, right?
For this simple little project, I used SCRAPBOOK PAPER and some raffia from a Dollar Tree Valentine's sign I had purchased for $1, but couldn't figure out how to use in a craft.
I cut out hearts, both from plain red and paper that had a "busy" background, but also in Valentine's themes and colors and I glued first to the box of candy, then a second heart on top. Finally, I finished each with a raffia bow. I made the girls' a little more fancy with a tiny red felt heart, but the boys' remained just raffia, and they were really cute!
To finish the Valentines I took a white paint pen and wrote Valentine's messages similar to what you would find on the candy hearts. "Be Mine" "I Love You" "Sweetheart" and "Hug Me" to give each child something unique. The final product was awesome. The personal touch was even appreciated by the kids who each vowed to keep the heart attached to their candy box. (Oh, and they were really excited about the candy too! Way to go Dad!)
Overall this easy to make Valentine, the simple $1 box of candy, and some creativity leaned to an awesome Valentine that didn't break the bank, showed the kids they were special and made me feel like I actually accomplished giving them something they liked without going overboard to do so. It was a win/win! BRAVO!!!
What did you do for Valentine's Day for your kids? Do you have traditions or do you change it up each year (we change it up!) Show me what you made, and drop a comment or "like" this blog post if you appreciated my efforts to give my kids a great Valentines day on a dime!
I look forward to hearing about what you created! Until tomorrow, I hope your Saturday is a great one, and keep warm if you're not in Florida!
