DIY Painted Spoons on Canvas

Article from paperyandcakery.com

When I spotted this ad on Pinterest {an ad for a paint chip company using spoons to display the beautiful colors} I was smitten. Plus I had the perfect wall in my kitchen that was beckoning for a custom piece.


So I set out to recreate it.

Instead of ordering real spoons, I opted for these plastic ones that look just like real metal.

Then I painted them with acrylic paint.

Once they dried, I hot glued them to the canvas.

Voila: paint chip spoon art!

DIY watercolor paper flower

These watercolor paper flower DIY from Kelli Myrray are so creative and beautiful.

"First, you will need a pair of scissors and some paper.  She used this natural fine paper from Paper Source.  Cut about 10-12 rectangular pieces roughly 4″ X 2.5″  in size (larger for  a larger flower, smaller for a smaller flower).  You could then use your scissors to cut them all into the shape of petals, but we preferred tearing the paper by hand so that the edges were left rough and slightly frayed. They all don’t have to be perfect.  In fact, having them irregular looks even better in the end. After you are done shaping your petals, you’ll want to paint them. She used Winsor & Newton watercolors in mustard, peach and grey.  But use whatever color palette is inspiring to you! This is the part that allows you to get creative.  Mix your paint with water and start painting your petals. She made the bottom portion of the petal darker, and then fading up to a lighter shade at the ends.  Let the petals dry."

"Next you will need some rustic floral wire and some pliers. The wire will serve as your stem, so cut it to the length you desire.  To create your flower, take the petals (they should be fully dry at this point) and begin wrapping them around the top of your stem using floral tape (not pictured) to secure them. She did 2 petals at a time.  After you have attached all of your petals and your flower is full, it will need a “center” to cover up the exposed wire in the middle. She just twisted solid black paper into a small ball and used a glue gun to attached it to the center. She also added touches of black paint along the edges of our petals to give them a little definition."

DIYCoffe Filter Place Settings

Article from paperyandcakery.com

I’m always searching for unique ways to set the table. Coffee filters are the perfect means to both hold flatware while directing guests to the appropriate seat.

First, place a piece of parchment paper cute to size in between the filter so your design doesn’t bleed through.

Remove the parchment once dry. Place the flatware inside.

Voila!
