Easy To Make Dollar Tree Craft
Most all of the supplies you can get at your local Dollar tree, if you don’t already have the items at home.
What you’ll need:
3 Hardcover Books
Silk Flowers and Leaves Bunch
Ribbon, Buffalo Check
Craft Paint – White, Ivory, Light Grey
Alphabet Stamps – Upper and Lower Case
Ink Pad, Black
Permanent Marker, Black
What you’ll do:
First, gather all the supplies listed up above. Be sure to select black or dark book covers. This will give the finished project more depth. Remove the paper dust covers and base coat the canvas covers of the books with a mixture of white and ivory craft paint. Don’t over mix the colors and let the base coat be rough, so the dark base is visible through the paint. Set aside to dry.
Dry brush light grey paint around the sides and edges of the books, in places that wear would naturally occur. Set aside to dry.
Using both the upper- and lower-case alphabet stamps, select the message HAPPY FALL YALL. Place the books spine up, tap each letter stamp in the ink pad and stamp on the spine. Leave a bit more space between the Y and A in Y’ALL, so we can add the apostrophe in the next step. The irregularity of the stamped letters gives the project farmhouse style charm.
Using a permanent black marker, add the apostrophe between the Y and A in Y’ALL.
Stack the books together and wrap with buffalo check ribbon, securing at the top with a knot and leaving the tails long. Cut a decorative fishtail in the end of the ribbon ends.
To finish, snip off a section of a small silk flower bunch and two fall leaves with wire cutters and tuck into the knot.
So easy to create and perfect for fall decorating!
You can also change things up by stamping an autumn message that speaks to you and embodies your home. Or any message really. For any season or holiday. Makes a great DIY gift ideas, too. Your family and friends will never know how quick and easy this trendy book stack was to create!
