Easter Cutout for Interchangeable HOME Sign

Happy Easter Everyone! I hope this year you are all able to safely spend time with your loved ones and enjoy eating as many Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs as you want! I try not to eat too much candy but something about Easter morning I always reach for one of those peanut buttery delicious eggs (usually before breakfast, oops!). Anyone else like that with a specific candy on Easter?

One of my favorite decoration additions to our house is this interchangeable home sign. It allows me to get creative with a cutout of my choice from start to finish. This one came together quickly and that’s all thanks to my scroll saw and Cricut machine. If you need holiday gnome inspiration checkout my St. Patrick’s or Christmas cutouts!

DIY Easter Egg Sign with Peek-A-Boo Bunny Ears

It has been a crazy couple of months here at our house and I imagine it will only get busier as we get closer to the wedding date! I am so excited to share all of the fun projects that are coming together for the wedding but I will be saving them for after the celebration. I don’t want to spoil any of the surprise for guests that follow me here on the blog. I have not been as active on here between my day job (short staffed) and wedding plans so taking a step away to do a quick Easter project was a welcome change. I found this wooden egg sign at Michaels for 50% off and started playing with an egg design and bunny ears popping out from behind. Jury is still out on if I will keep the bunny ears because I love the egg design too much, hello glittery top coat!

Girls Night In – Tie Dye Sweatpants

Find yourself a best friend who is as excited as you to get coffee from Starbucks and spend the night making tie dye sweatpants! For real, how lucky am I to have her as my best friend and maid of honor?! Although the best base to apply color is white, I was concerned about how see through a pair of white sweatpants would be. Instead I opted for a pair of light grey jogger sweatpants. Meanwhile, my friend decided to do a second take of tie dye. She chose to reverse tie dye a pair of black sweatpants.

I haven’t done tie dye in forever so this was a fun craft for us to do and very on trend. Tie dye is making a comeback and I’m not mad about it. Check out our before photo and the link to the tie dye kit used for the purple and grey sweatpants!

Loads of Love Valentines Sign

After taking down large amount of Christmas decorations in January, our plan was to put up Valentines to fill some of the empty space. The sad realization that we only have two decorations for the holiday quickly sat in. For a while now I’ve been wanting to use a pickup truck in a decoration. With this lack of Valentines décor in our house, I decided the two would make a perfect pairing. This loads of love sign was the result and it turned out exactly like I pictured!

I did make this with my Cricut machine. Let me know if you are interested in this being put as a digital download for purchase on Etsy! Make sure to follow me here on WordPress but also on Instagram and now YouTube with our same name, Take2Create.

I was torn about whether to do red hearts and lettering or the black glitter hearts and lettering. Read more to see how they looked side by side in my design space before I decided!

DIY Winter Pillowcases

One of the best things about Pinterest is that you are able to get your hand on how-to guides instantly. This was especially nice for me as my future in-laws gifted me a wonderful sewing machine for Christmas! I wanted to start the machine (and me) off with something simple, a set of pillowcases was the easy pick. I went to Pinterest for a how to and the below step by step video showed up. Exactly what I needed! She made the tutorial clear on the burrito method, which was a new way of making a pillowcase for me. Needless to say, my confidence in this sewing machine is now ready to take on more projects!

Disney Themed Interchangeable HOME Sign

A few weeks back I shared that I was commissioned to do two of these interchangeable home signs for one of my friends. Drumroll please…. It’s finished! It was completed a few weeks before Christmas but with the 12 Days of Cookies, I didn’t have time to get this one up. I am so excited to share how it turned out with all of you! Check out the video below and make sure to subscribe to see more fun crafts.

Let me know your favorite! I am between the gingerbread Mickey or the Jack-O-Lantern Mickey.

Gnome Place Like Home for the Holidays

Merry Christmas Everyone! I wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday. There is no place like home for the holidays like the song puts so well, so I’ve added a new cutout to our HOME sign to celebrate. This Christmas gnome has been greeting us for a few weeks now when we enter our home, and I felt he was the perfect way to send our season’s greetings to all of you.

Mickey and Minnie Christmas Wood Cutout

It’s Christmastime and I am so excited to have a new project to show everyone. I started on this project in October and yes I was definitely listening to Christmas music through all the steps! This project got put after a few other ones on my list based on when they needed to be done, hopefully you have already checked out the stocking I made for my mom’s birthday or the start of the interchangeable O home sign (this one is ready and the only thing left is to take photos and share with all of you!)

It’s the first Christmas in our new house and I am so thrilled to decorate the outside with our own personal touches. I’ve done wooden cutouts before (Anyone remember the Thanksgiving Minions?) but this will be the newest and first addition to my fiancé and I’s collection. I might already have plans to add more of the memorable characters to the front yard in the coming years!

Which character would you like to see next? Comment below with your idea!

This is a HOME sign commissioned by one of my really good friends, one for her and one for her mom’s Christmas gift.
