Hey girl, hey! Our new Lizzy & Erin Woodshop is LIVE! And I’m so excited to share this with you!
Here’s the project we are making today, and I am in LOVE with the blue and yellow, y’all!
Here are the Sunflower Sunshine wood cuts. They each have three layers of crafty goodness!
Dollar Tree: 11X14 canvas, Tumbling Tower game blocks, moss
Lowes or Home Depot: large wood shims
Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint: White Swan, Hey Sailor (blue)
Walmart: Apple Barrel paint: Pale Daffodil, Waverly Antique Wax
Stash: cardboard, moss, greenery, fabric for bow
Let’s get started!
I painted these before I went live. There are 3 pieces to each flower, and I used Apple Barrel Pale Daffodil for the yellow, Debi’s Design Diary White Swan for the outline and Waverly Antique Wax for the brown center. I also dry brushed the center with White Swan.
I think they would also be so cute in pink, purple and yellow!
These are the shims I frequently use for my surfaces. These and the smaller shims (red label) can be found in the cabinet department of Lowes or Home Depot. I used 11 large ones for this project.
I hot glued the shims to my 11X14 canvas from Dollar Tree. Once all of them were on, I used my Water Girl Continuous Spray Bottle to mist the wood so the Waverly Antique Wax would go on a bit thinner. This helps the wood grain to show through.
Once stained, I used my heat tool to dry my surface. You can also use a blow dryer, or set it aside to dry.
I also used my Water Girl spray bottle to wet my cardboard. This will help the layers to separate so I can use the ribbed layer as my planter. I was going for a Mason jar look, but girl, it is what it is, right?
This piece of cardboard was a bit more difficult than usual, but I finally got it down to the layer you see on the right. I dry brushed it with White Swan.
Once the wood surface was dry, I used my Debi’s Design Diary DIY Hey Sailor paint to finish out the background. I absolutely love this color!
I glued the cardboard in place and began attaching the little Tumbling Tower game blocks onto the backs of my flowers to raise them up.
Some greenery, and a second block on the lower right flower, and we are on the way to having a beautiful flower trio!
I tried some raffia, but I really liked this ragged strip. I just hot glued it on.
I added a little bow on the front and y’all… it’s so stinkin’ cute!
There are so many different ways to craft with these wood cuts, y’all. Let me know in the comments how you might use yours!
Thank you for stopping by!
