Decorative Fall Potpourri Display

Perfect trash-to-treasure project. Starting with an rusty rake, empty bottle and discarded stainless steel bowl I made this awesome display. I scrubbed the rust off the rake with a wire brush, sawed off the wood handle and painted it with a bronze hammered finish paint. Glued twine around handle and finished it off with some decorative corn. I cleaned the bowl with stainless steel polish and then to bring more interest I glued sisal around the rim and filled with colorful fall potpourri. For the bottle, I cut it in half, filled it with the remaining fall potpourri, resealed it back together and finished it off with raffia ribbon.

Turned out beautifully and is a welcoming and fragrant display by the front door.

DREAM Bathroom Wall Plaque

Dream Bathroom Wall Art by Deej Does

Years ago at Christmas time I bought these decorative letters at Marshall Fields. Each letter was made from twigs and branch parts and wire. I love the resourcefulness of it. Unfortunately the movie , The Blair Witch Project came out and ruined my chic letters. After a couple of people commented it reminded them of that movie it became less inspiring of a message to look at so I took them down. I’ve kept them for years boxed away. Now that I’m a crafter/do-it-yourselfer/doer I decided to see if I could strip the marred image of these cool letters. I decided to disguise the natural look of the twigs by painting them white, which polishes it up a notch and gives them a more pure appearance. (Take that Blair Witch!) Next I decided to backdrop it with a favorite view of mine: a sandy beach, blue water, sunny day. I found the perfect image in my image library, sized it to fit project and printed it out. Next I painted the wood frame white, glued the beach image to base of frame, sealed it three times with sealing glue and topped with a clear epoxy. Glued letters to frame and hung it in our beach themed bathroom. Its a wonderful message to see and absorb daily….and fits in beautifully with the bathroom decor.

Deej’s Elementary Crayon Wine Carafes

Red and White Elementary Crayon Wine Bottles by Deej

Why elementary? Because the decal up top displays the proper glass for this wine type.
Why crayon? Because after I designed the “red” version I though it look like a kid’s crayon.
Why wine carafe? Ok, know you’re just screwing around, lol.
