New Upcycled Projects to Make 597


Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific

Whoop! One day of no rain this week means guess where I’m heading! My son is coming over to help with some yard work so I’ll be working (playing?) alongside him while we clean up the yard before winter! Any reason to get outdoors is a good reason in my book! Plus, he wants to be paid in pumpkin spice lattes and a visit to the video arcade place so it should be a fun weekend!

But oh my oh my… I posted twice this week! And I couldn’t be more proud. LOL

The new fall stencils were released this week which you can see HERE

And I made my first project with the Sunflower Farm – Small stencil…

I picked up a big pile of old picket fence planks this past summer, and was thrilled to put them to work on this cutie pie Sunflower themed fall wood sign with an added shelf… and lotsa rusty old relics to chime in with it! I’m smitten… and that stencil design worked AMAZING in my chosen neutral tones!

So this next week I’ll be doing more fall projects along with starting the new Christmas stencil designs next! My goal is to launch them mid Oct (lookit me goooo) so I best get busy!

Any Christmas stencil design requests? Lemme know in comments! I’ll be starting next week!

Oh yes. And I also did this massive fall sign roundup in THIS POST which I’ll share in the linkup below. It was high time to offer a spot for just fall signs and with now 13 and climbing, it creates an inspiring scroll at the least!

So let’s now check out all YOUR newest repurposed DIY projects with tutorials you brought over last week in this week’s features…

  1. Glad you’ve got your creative mojo going, Donna! Always fun to see the new stencils you create. I love your new project where the shelf is suspended from twine; genius! My creativity has been used decorating these last weeks, trying to finish up the Fall decor. Got some diy ideas a-brewing, though;) Thanks always for hosting!

  2. Great Fall sign round-up! Love them all, but my fave has got to be the pumpkin cart! Thank you for hosting and for featuring our pop-up garden this week! I’ll try to put my thinking cap on for Christmas design requests 🙂

  3. Your chippy sunflower sign is fabulous Donna! Enjoy the first weekend of October. I’m amazed at how gorgeous our fall has been this year. Another gorgeous day today to spend outside playing in the leaves with the grandkids.

  4. I just a little jealous of your stash of chippy fence pickets! The project you made with them is sweet!
    Excited to see what stencils you come up with for Christmas.
    Hope you had a good yard work date with your son. 🙂

  5. Thank you so much for featuring our Pine Cupboard Makeover! I appreciate it ?. Hope you got lots of yard work done with your son – they’re kinda nice to have around!
