New Upcycle Ideas 705
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
This past week I’ve been finishing up Christmas projects, and am now, one-by-one getting them onto the blog. Finally! And here’s the latest which turned into so much more than I had imagined it would… along with an unexpected confidence booster too!
Upcycle Christmas tree sign with precious hand painted details
I would have never really labeled myself as a hand painter, until I tried hand painting details on this Christmas Tree sign. All I can say is WOW. The attention to detail turned this stenciled art into a handmade piece that feels vintage! This is a great way to try your hand at hand painting. Just remember, if you mess up, paint over it and try again. There’s nothing to lose! Come and see for yourself!
And stay tuned, much more is coming!
So until then, let’s get super inspired with these fabulous upcycled features from last week’s party… you just wait!

Clay pot Christmas bells decoration
Did you see Deb’s post on the clay pot forest trees mantel last weekend? Chalk this Christmas bells project up to yet another genius idea using clay pots! These terra cotta Christmas bells are perfection to add to any wreath! Gorgeous as-is and so easy to customize! This tutorial also includes a clay pot wreath (whaaat?), plus the aforementioned mantel display!
Easy gingerbread men decorations from dollar store tiles
I’m taking a peek into a dollar store this weekend to look for tin tile… because these adorable Dollar Tree tile gingerbread men ornaments are everything! I love how the tile adds detail without the added labour of painting all the icing details in. This quick and easy gingerbread man variation is a must to try!
Homespun Victorian paper ornaments from print outs
Calling all vintage collectors! Go print out the vintage images of your dreams, then attach them to a few supplies to create these dreamy DIY Victorian paper ornaments! I get this overwhelming sense of childhood Christmas memories when I see these, do you feel it too? There is nothing quite like a true hand crafted touch! This ornament tutorial shares all the sources needed.
Whimsical faux wood fairy house garden door scene
Along my own trails I bike, you’ll spot the odd fairy door thoughtfully placed at the base of a towering tree. Perhaps it’s time to donate one of my own fairy doors, since this faux wood fairy garden door is so outstandingly whimsical! Seriously though, this tutorial is a must-visit to take in every single little detail on this enchanting fairy house project!
