Start with a Seed (part 4): Organizing a Seed Planting Project

It truly amazes me that you can take a tiny seed (that might look like a piece of lint or dirt), lay it in soil, water it, nurture it, and then watch it grow into a beautiful thriving plant. I have sprouting seeds, my friends, and new ones coming up each day. If I can […]

Easy Pipe Cleaner Plant Markers

Cheap and easy diy plant markers was the goal with this project. And while there are quite a few super simple ideas, I wanted to use something I had on hand. I was looking through my craft stash for some popcicle sticks, but I ended up finding a few bags of colorful pipe cleaners.   […]

Turn a miniature house or birdhouse into a planter. This one was a tealight holder, so it had an open area where plants could be tucked into - repurposed-birdhouse-tealight-planter - StowAndTellU.com

Miniature House Upcycled as a Planter

What junk have you been collecting lately, just to turn it into something else?  I’ve been collecting miniature houses that range from faux birdhouse to brightly painted cottage.  Each piece seems to have another purpose, such as a tealight holder or tissue dispenser, but I’d like to upcycle all of these in some other way.

Basket o’ Faux Speckled Farmhouse Eggs

A few years ago when I was helping my sister re-do her kitchen, I diy-ed her a basket of decorative farmhouse inspired speckled eggs and to date, it’s still one of my all-time favorite projects.  Although she doesn’t live in a farmhouse, she does live on about 2 acres of property and boards her own […]

Use the glass and frame only from a vintage frame to make a framed moss shamrock or any moss shape that works for you. Rustic, simple look for St Patrick's Day or Spring decor - StowandTellU.com

DIY Framed Moss Shamrock on Glass

I’ve always loved the look of glass framed art, but have yet to purchase one of those pressed glass frames.  I do however, have several vintage frames that still have the glass, but are missing the artwork. Ideal for mounting something with glue, ie: a mossy shamrock, to the front of the glass for faux […]

Shamrock DIY Paint Stamp from a Potato

One potato, two potato, three potato, four…make your own potato stamp to use on your decor! Okay, I’m such a dork, but at least I’m a dork that knows how to rhyme, hmmm? So I saw this idea for a diy potato paint stamp in a craft book years ago.  I no longer can find […]

Salvaged Blouse to Spring Vase

Nothing said spring like this brightly colored blouse I came across at the Goodwill a few weeks ago.  It was pale yellow with accents of bright green, purple and orange.  Made of a gauzy material, it had a kind of three dimensional texture with a flowery pattern running through it.  Just too pretty to pass […]

Speckled Egg Textured Decoupage Mason Jars

In my quest to find to perfect faux speckled egg texture, I have reached another threshold of speckled egg texture bliss.  I won’t call this perfection, no siree, but I tried a little something different from the splatter paint texture technique of last year.   After making the paint dipped soup cans a few months ago, […]

Valentine Twig Heart Trivet

Just before the holidays we made a bunch of twig ornaments for our family get together and they went over quite well.  Not that anyone in my family would dare tell me otherwise, wink, wink!! Anyways,  I really liked the rustic yet organized texture that comes about from lining up something as simple and abundant […]

Spring Fever with Copper and Green

Copper and green… I’ve seen this combination a few time before, thought it quite pretty and knew I had to try it myself.  With a few décor beauties from the Goodwill, a few family heirloom-like pieces and a few added craft store decorating essentials, I was able to mix and match until my heart’s content.  […]

Speckled Easter… Hey Those Aren’t Eggs…Splatter Paint Texture

A simple nest of speckled eggs can bring about thoughts of fresh air and springtime; the county fair, the Circle H, the French Market… Okay, I’m going to take a 180 here, because, I just can’t help but marvel at how much speckled eggs look like splattered paint! Or maybe I should say, splattered paint […]
