How it’s Made
Yesterday I partnered up with Terrie from Decorate and More with Tip to share how to style a Two Tiered Tray. We both shared our videos on Facebook. Every Wednesday we share either a craft or how to decorate something in your home. And Every Wednesday we get asked the all important question “Can you tell me how it’s made?”. So this week, as well as sharing the video we thought that it would be fun to share how we made several things that we put on our trays. If you would like to see my video, please go here. Don’t forget to visit Terrie here.
Valentine’s Day Mug
I love the look of the Rae Dunn mugs.
However, I don’t like the idea of storing a ton of mugs for each holiday.
So I make my own holiday mugs by taking plain white mugs and adding vinyl lettering to them.
I have a Silhouette machine that makes it super easy for me to make a design.
Once I’ve decided on a design, it’s simply a matter of cutting it out and adding it to the mug.
Don’t have a Cricut or a Silhouette machine?
Your local craft store has a ton of peel and stick lettering that you can use!
Mini Rolling Pin
In my video I had taken one of these sweet little rolling pins, cut out vinyl lettering and attached it to the pin.
Well, since you may not have a cutting machine I want to show you just how easy it is to use peal and stick lettering.
Simply choose the letters of the word you want to use, the stick them on.
Once I have my lettering on, I like to add a bit of bakers twine tied in a bow for a little extra embellishment.
Seriously, it couldn’t get any easier and it takes very little time!
A few years ago I made the multi- media heart signs.
If you missed it you can see it here.
I made all sizes, shapes, and colors with a ton of different embellishments.
They are so easy to make and I have used them just about everywhere here at the Castle!
Conversation Heart Mug
The last craft is the centerpiece on the top tier.
It’s a cute mug with a conversation heart.
I found the heart at Hob Lob and it’s originally intended to be used as a floral pick.
However, it was much too long for my mug.
I simply cut it to my desired length using a small hack saw.
Placed a piece of styrofoam into the mug.
Next, add the heart pick to the styrofoam and cover it with crinkly white paper.
I hope this answered your question “can you tell me how it’s made?”
