Hanging Flower Basket

This is a really simple hanging basket and makes a beautiful piece of wall decor! I have a lot of floral stems that I have collected over the past year and was so excited to use them! The shallow basket is one that I got from the dollar Target section. It was originally $5 and was 50% off with the Christmas items.

Supplies Needed:

  • Shallow Basket
  • Artificial Flowers of your choosing
  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
  • Wire Cutters


There are many ways that you could create a floral basket. I chose to keep it simple and just use hot glue.

To attach the flowers I cut the stems off as close to the flower as I could. Then I put hot glue on the basket and attached the flowers. I first did a layer of larger flowers to cover the basket.

Once the first layer of flowers were glued down I started to add another layer of flowers. I added smaller sunflowers, a little bit of greenery, and dandelion flowers. I love the look of the different layers of flowers. I would have liked to add more sunflowers but I wanted to use what I had on hand.

Once I was finished with the basket I hung it on the wall. I just used a nail and rested the basket grooves on the nail.

I love how this turned out! I think this would also be beautiful with just greenery! Hope you give this a try!

DIY Thanksgiving Embroidery Hoop Sign

Supplies Needed

  • Embroidery Hoop
  • Fabric, I used a plain ivory cotton fabric
  • Mod Podge
  • Thanksgiving Scrapbook Paper, I got mine from Hobby Lobby
  • Burlap Placemat, I got mine from burlap that had the word “thankful” on it
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun & Sticks
  • Fall Artificial Flowers
  • Pencil
  • Plastic Wrap
  • Paint Brush


I love this Thanksgiving paper!! It is so beautiful!! I have never tried this type of decoupaging before and love how it turned out!

The first thing I did was use a pencil to trace the embroidery hoop circle on the paper. Trace it around the outer embroidery hoop.

Then you can put the fabric in the embroidery hoop.

Then I used a brush to spread mod podge on the embroidery hoop and fabric. Then you can place the circle you cut out on the the fabric and embroidery hoop.

I also brushed mod podge on top of the sign. I used mod podge to smooth down the edges on the sides of the embroidery hoop.

I used a plastic bag to smooth out the paper before the mod podge dried. It worked great! But it would work better with plastic wrap.

I used hot glue to glue the excess fabric down to the inside of the embroidery hoop.

I wanted to add this burlap placemat word to the sign. I cut out the word to fit the sign and rounded the edges. I then used hot glue to attach the word to the paper.

I wanted to add Fall flowers underneath the burlap fabric. I used hot glue to secure them under the burlap!

I hope you give this a try!! It was so much fun to make!

Summer Tree Decor

I love trees and it is so fun having a tree to decorate all year!! This tree is one that I made with a tomato cage and garland!

I wanted to redecorate it for the summer! I used artificial summer flowers that I got at Michael’s when they were 60% off. I love these colors and how they blend together!

I also made a bow with left over straw hat material I had. I used hot glue to make it.

Then I decorated the tree and tried the bow in a couple different positions!

I would love to see your favorite tree decorations for this time of year!

DIY Americana Bucket


  • Small White Bucket
  • Americana Napkins
  • Mod Podge
  • Brush
  • Scissors
  • Artificial Americana Flowers


To get ready for this craft, I first cut my napkin into the pieces I wanted to use to cover my bucket. I wanted two full pieces of napkin that contained 1/4 of the napkin with the red truck, the plaid edges, and two pieces that had only the white background and stars.

I first decoupaged the pieces of napkin with the red truck. I tried to mod podge opposite of each other on the bucket. So that the truck would be in the front and back. To decoupage the napkin make sure to remove the other layers of the napkin so that there is only the decorative top layer left. Then brush mod podge on the bucket and place the napkin on the bucket and brush more mod podge on top of the napkin.

Then I cut the pieces of napkin that were just white with stars to fit the uncovered parts of the bucket. I decoupaged it in the same way as the truck pieces.

I then decoupaged the edge pieces to the top of the bucket.

Then I added the artificial Americana flowers. I hope you give this craft a try! Comment below with your favorite Americana crafts!

Dowel Sign Craft

Supplies Needed:

  • Dowel Sticks
  • Drill and Drill Bit (I used the smallest drill bit I had)
  • Waxed Thread
  • Needle
  • Scissors

Decor Supplies that I used:

  • Celery Green Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Wood Beads
  • Artificial Flowers


I first lined up my dowel sticks and measured an inch from both ends. I marked with a pencil where I wanted to drill.

I then used a small drill bit and drill two holes in the sticks. I will say this would work better with bigger dowel sticks, but it did work with the small ones as well.

Once all the holes are drilled in the sticks, I used thread and needle to gather them together. I made a knot to secure the bottom and sewed through the drilled holes. Once all the sticks are together I tied a knot at the top to form a hanger for the sign. Once this was finished I painted the sign with an acrylic paint.

To decorate the sign I hot glued wood beads with the hole in a vertical direction. Once they were glued on I added small flowers in the holes. You could also add flowers to the top and bottom of the sign as well.
