DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 454

DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 434 - Buffalo checked sleigh and tray, gingerbread playdough, spindle ornaments, plus!

Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 454

Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific

Merry Christmas!

I know… a little early for the real deal greeting, but if you’ve been around these parts in the past week, you’ll already know it’s been a little like Santa’s Workshop lately!

3 projects in one week… with more on the way! It sure feels good to get in that workshop again.

scrap wood rusty junk snowmen with rope and burlap scarves-010

According to my Instagram post, the scrap wood snowmen won by a landslide! How can something so simple be so well received? I’m just grateful. The outcome truly gave me a massive boost to keep on keepin’ on!

I’ll post my other two projects in the linkup below. My personal favs are the little Christmas trees with junk bases…

So what brought all this on suddenly? Kim Klassen’s Write|21 course challenged us to focus on one thing over the next 21 days.  And simple… I chose to blog more. And what better way than to bring on Christmas!

The challenge has totally made me aware of why I’ve been falling a little short lately. Getting sidetracked and without a strong focus did not help. Here’s hoping after 21 days this DIY thing will all be old hat once again… so look out…

And goodness… you guys really outdid yourselves at the last party. Check out these beautiful features…

Nothing spells winter more than fresh fallen snow in a forest, so these bottle brush snow globe ornaments certainly do it for me! Love how these can be used well into the winter months without feeling out of season. Post shows you how.

You will never look at a shelf this shape quite the same way ever again. Isn’t this a perfect mix of whatevers?! Some of the supplies surprised me! Post shares how to do it.

This once plain wood basket sure got a LOT more festive with a few stencils and a beautiful vibrant shade of red! And such a clever use… visit the post to see how perfectly this project was themed… stencil details in the post.

Seriously. I want to make this just to smell it! Playing with it would be like icing on an already epic cake! Great recipe in the post.

Doesn’t this cute cutting board have a vintage vibe in this tone? All that’s missing is a nice hot cup of cocoa served on it! I love using cutting boards as oversized coasters.

  1. I’m not surprised that your snowmen were a hit on Instagram. I love the other 2 projects you shared too. They’re all pinned so hopefully I can give them a try. Thank you for hosting the party.

  2. Donna, your scrap wood snowmen are ADORABLE! Love your features this week – so much inspiration her❣️ Sarah’s spindle ornaments inspired me to do something with my bucket of old spindles. I am so grateful to have been included among them and honored to have been twice. Thank you 🙂 xo

  3. Thank you Donna for including my aqua bread board and hot chocolate mug with the white stenciled snowflakes this week. I love your stencils and was so happy they arrived so quickly.

    Thank you too Donna for your 454th DIY Salvaged Junk Projects. Your wooden snowmen with attitudes are great.

    Write 21 has pulled at my heart strings – a great on-line course to take this month – loving Kim’s Write 21. Growth, stretch, write, explore, change and so much more.

    Hugs.

    Joy

  4. Wow, you’ve been a busy creator! Can’t wait to check out all your new projects! We’re finally getting some snow, which makes the creative juices flow at lightning speed! Wish my hands worked as fast as my brain;( Have a great weekend, Donna!
