Two Easy Projects

Since I have been introduced to Pinterest, I must say that I am officially addicted to it. I can’t get enough of the style ideas and cute projects I find there. Those of you who have signed up for it as well can relate to me.

Some of you may have seen the “Follow Me on Pinterest” button in the sidebar. From there, you’ll be able to see all of the innovative ideas that I have “pinned” during my free time this summer, of course that’s in between grad work and preparing for a new grade level change.

Seriously though, it’s a good way to give your brain a break for a few minutes! I still have a few invites left, so the first three people who want the invites can comment with your email address. I’ll send the invite very soon after I receive them =)

As for the rest of you though, I’m going to share two simple projects that I found while browsing around.

word art

Four canvases + small letters spelling out words of your choice =  instant art!

All you have to do is attach the letter with some glue then paint the entire canvas white! Very simple! Very easy! Give it a try!

white vases

This is a great way to recycle some good ole’ bottlenecks!

Spray paint the bottles white {or a color of your choice}

OR….you can add a little bit of interest to it.

Buy puffy paint of any color. Draw designs over the bottles. Then, spray paint.

Last, but certainly not least, insert a few flowers of your choice!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Hopefully I’ll be back tomorrow to share all of the happenings of mine!

Have a great week!
