Decorating with Yellow

I love decorating with neutral colors, but lately it seems I am drawn to yellow decor. This week, I took some yellow fabric and yellow spray paint and made a couple of quick craft projects.

1. Repurposed Coffee Container

My husband saves containers for me because he knows I like to reuse them for craft projects. I knew that this container would look perfect with a little paint and some flowers.

It took about three coats of spray paint to cover the container. I love how bright and cheery it looks!

I added a bouquet of flowers to finish the look.

2. Fabric Wrapped Heart Clock

I made this clock last year. Unfortunately, either my son or my husband knocked it over and broke it (no one has confessed to the crime). I hate throwing my craft projects away, so I decided to give the clock a makeover.

I removed the clock parts, then I painted over the numbers on the wood heart so they wouldn’t show through the fabric. Next, I cut out a piece of the fabric into a heart shape and adhered it to the wood heart with Fabric Mod Podge. Finally, I added the parts back to the clock.

Yellow is such a happy color. It immediately puts me in the mood for warmer weather. I can’t wait to add the color to other parts of my house.

DIY Wish List

I absolutely love decorating and doing DIY projects. Some days I have so many ideas that I just do not have the time to complete them all. Then, there are times when my mind is drawing a blank, and I have no idea what projects to work on. When I need new ideas and inspiration, I either visit craft stores or I visit craft websites to find tutorials for new projects. This blog post is all about DIY projects that are inspiring me and are on my wish list to complete in the future.

Looking Glass Paint Project

I love the Krylon Looking Glass spray paint. I found it in a store several months ago, and I have been trying it out on a few items in my house.

The best things about this spray paint is that it is easy to use, it gives clear glass a reflective finish, and it dries very quickly. You can make your own mirror in about 10 minutes.

I used the spray paint on a cheap picture frame and candle holders. I also used Krylon Brushed Metallic paint on the outer part of the picture frame.
