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.
I own a lot of scrapbook paper and Mod Podge, so it was only natural for me to create some craft projects using the two supplies. I made these lovely, springtime crafts with only a few products.
- The first project is a small wood crate that I bought and painted a few months ago. I was using it for storage on my desk.
I started by cutting the paper to fit the crate. Next, I glued the paper and crate together by applying a thin layer of Mod Podge on the crate and the back of the paper. (Use your hands or some other object to help smooth out any wrinkles in the paper.) I let the Mod Podge dry for a couple of hours, then I added another layer to seal the crate.
2. For the next project, I decorated a small wood box that’s almost shaped like a purse.
I painted the box light yellow.
Next, I cut the paper to fit the outside and inside of the box.
Then I glued the paper to the box using Mod Podge.
Finally, I let the box dry for a couple of hours.
Now I have a cute storage box for my jewelry and other small items.
3. I used a wood tray for the last project.
I painted the tray with Krylon Sun Yellow Spray Paint.
Next, I cut the scrapbook paper to fit inside the tray.
Then I glued and sealed the paper into the tray using Mod Podge.
I love this tray because it matches the yellow flowers and candles in my living room.

I love doing craft projects with laser-cut wood frames and plaques. I think they are both excellent ways to create unique wall art. On my recent trip to Michaels, I bought this wood plaque and wood letter:
I let the two objects sit on my table for a couple of days because I didn’t know what I wanted to do with them. Then, one day as I was walking around a store, I saw lots of products that were gray and yellow. I loved the way those two colors complimented each other. I immediately went to another craft store and bought yellow acrylic paint and gray chalk paint.
I painted the plaque gray:
and the letter “B” yellow:
I used two coats of paint on each object. I lightly sanded the paint on the plaque with fine grit sandpaper to give the plaque a chalk finish. Then, I hot glued the letter on the plaque and hung the finished project on my wall.
