Kids name plate idea using an uncolored coloring page for the background, foam letters, decoupage, card board - StowandTellU.com

Coloring Page Name Plate for Kids

This is an idea craft that was born from the twig name plate I made for my nephew.  I was originally going to use a coloring page as the background for the twig name, but found that the twig name didn’t stand out like it did on glass. I had some colorful foam letters that […]

Bicycle Built for a Pair of 90s Coat Rack Shelves

This was a case where the 90s called and wanted their shelves back, but I had to tell them, sorry, no can do.  After “not” painting the living room and rushing through the $100 dollar guestroom/ office update, let’s just say that the get-er-done approach was trending in our new little home, and I honestly […]

Weathered Old Newspaper Lamp Shade

I usually keep a stack of old newspaper around because it always comes in handy for wrapping items for storage or shipping, and it works well as a small drop cloth for craft projects.   Back in the day (as in before the internet) I kept news paper around for other reasons, as in the […]

Vintage Bottle Cap Paper Decoupage Tin Cans

I bought some vintage looking scrapbook paper a while back because I thought the design was a make up of vintage soda bottle caps.  When I pulled it out to use it, I looked more closely and realized it was actually vintage milk bottle caps.  Oh?  Well that’s okay too, either way I liked the […]

6 Faux Metallic Projects with Tin Foil

Tin foil is not just for cooking, my friends.  There are plenty of ways to put aluminum foil to work in a DIY project to get a metallic finish that can look pretty darn close a real metallic finish.  Being that tin foil is technically metal already, it’s effect makes it look that much more […]

DIY Decoupaged Coffee Sack Furniture Cabinet

Small spaces often require dual purpose furniture, so while we wanted a piece of furniture with a cozy, game room feel to place next to Ken’s pinball and slot machines, we also wanted to hide the kitty litter box.  You know, because kitty litter boxes and game rooms go so well together, right?? Well, for […]

5 Things to Use as a Faux Canvas

I took a house tour a few years ago in one of the fancier suburban Chicago towns.  I was awed, inspired, and perhaps feeling that I should have dressed a little nicer.  Maybe next time, anyway, I remember in one of the most elaborate homes we actually had a tour guide who took us through […]

Keepsake (Faux) Snow in a Jar Ornament

At the first signs of a snowfall, when the snow is so fluffy and powdery, haven’t you ever just wanted to scoop some up and take it inside for keeps? You know, put it in a jar and look at it later…after all the snow outside has gotten dirty and dingy…partially melted down… only to […]

Vintage Bathing Beauties Beach Tray

Summertime… and the livin’ is eeeeaaasssyyyahhh!!  I remember my mother singing that song when I was a kid and rolling my eyes.  One, because she was an adult letting loose (not permitted)  and two, because she was my mother.  Both good reasons for a teenage girl to want to run and hide because she was […]

Delicate Little Decoupaged Camping Tray

Campfires, roasted marshmallows, boat rides, fishing off the pier, even a hike perhaps.  Those were a few of the images I was conjuring up for what was to come this past weekend when we headed off to visit our friends, Rich and Jamie, at their lakeside summer camping home.  Although, I almost didn’t go. “I’ve […]

Decoupaged Camping Lamp

I picked up one of those battery powered plastic camping lamps at a yard sale for $3.  It didn’t come with the 6 volt battery, but we happened to have one of those at home in our battery stash.  Not sure if either the battery or the camping lamp would actually work, I put the […]

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, […]

Grapevine Wire Lamp Revamp

I came upon some grapevine wire in the store a short while back and knew right off that I was going to have to wrap it around a lampshade to see what kind of texture possibilities I could come up with.  The grapevine wire reminded me of the twigs from my twig trivet, but with […]

She Wouldn’t Have it Any Other Way Keepsake Memorial Ornament

We finished the twig ornament project over this past weekend.  Our group was comprised of two guys breaking sticks, two girls with hot glue guns and several comedians to keep us in stitches while we worked on the ornaments.  Three hours later, we had a count of twenty plus ornaments and sore fingers from breaking […]
