Usually in January we all reflect on the past and look to the future for bigger and brighter things. Well, my crafting brain is no different. I thought I’d touch on my top 5 favorite DIYs with We Can Make That. Our goal here is to inspire you create and we think these will get you creating something today!
1. Sunflower Door Decor
This brightly colored wreath was one of the first things I made on We Can Make That. Using this beautiful sunflower yellow deco-mesh paper turned out so cute. (I took some burlap 6″ wide ribbon and just twisted and stuff to make the center.)
At the time I also had this perfect blue door. It just popped in the crisp fall air. This has to be my first top 5 favorite DIYs. Be sure to pin this one on Pinterest and follow Chelly for more creative inspiration!
2. Vintage Printer Drawer
This labor of love is my second top 5 favorite DIYs and is still hanging in my studio (where I create for We Can Make That and help businesses with branding and marketing). I started my career in a printshop in the early 90s and the industry still holds a place in my heart today.
My first logo was a embossed die for my business cards and the die is tucked into my Vintage Printer Drawer too.
Check out how I prepped this to clean it up and finished it to hang in my office. Vintage Printer Drawer blog post one and two. It wasn’t hard but did take more time than I expected, but it was worth it!
3. Thankful Fall Embroidery Hoop
This DIY still makes me smile! The sunflower and buffalo check background are adorable together and makes my third top 5 favorite DIYs. These hoop wreaths are so fun to make. I used a shirt from the thift store for the background and the wooden words were from Joann‘s.
