Craft Number One: Dollar Tree Sign

In this craft, Lady Red crafting’s Katie takes a sign from Dollar Tree and turns it into a beautiful fall decor piece. She starts by grabbing a piece of scrapbook paper and cutting it slightly bigger than the sign. Then, she paints a coat of mod podge over the top of the sign and attaches the scrapbook paper on it. After that, she uses a zip sander to sand off any excess paper around the edges of the sign, giving it a clean look all the way around each edge.

Next, she uses Rust-Oleum’s clear enamel to spray the sign before attaching any letters. Once she has attached the letters, she sprays another coat of the enamel. She uses wood letters from Walmart and lays them all out to come up with some different letters and words for the fall season. Then, she paints all the letters with apple barrel paint in light mocha.

Once all the letters have dried, she places them on the sign to space everything out and glues them onto the sign using some wood glue that she got from Dollar Tree. She puts a few dots on each one of the letters and places them back on the sign. It takes about an hour for the glue to dry. Lastly, she adds a little Raffia bow up in the fall corner to give the sign a little touch of something. She does a coat of the sealer again with Rust-Oleum enamel and once everything is dry, the sign is ready to be put out in a flower pot.

Cutting Scrapbook Paper

To elevate a sign from the Dollar Tree, Lady Red Crafting suggests grabbing a piece of scrapbook paper that is near to core style and cutting it slightly bigger than each sign. Once the paper is cut, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the top of each sign and set them aside to dry. Next, grab a piece of parchment paper and one of the pieces of scrapbook paper, and iron it on top of the sign. After everything is attached, use a zip sander or a sanding block to sand off any excess paper around the edges of the sign. This will give it a clean look all the way around each edge. Repeat these steps for the next two signs.

For the next craft, Lady Red Crafting uses four foam blocks that she painted with Sandstone from Waverly. She then grabbed some scrapbooking stamps and wrote out the word “Fall” using black ink and a piece of tissue paper. After spreading out the letters, she cut each letter out individually and painted them with water around the edges in an oval shape. She then tore around each one of these letters until each letter is cut out. Lady Red Crafting then cut out four squares of a beautiful leaf print paper and glued them onto each one of the cubes using Mod Podge. She then added the little letters on top of that.

For the last craft, Lady Red Crafting used canning jars shelf sitters that she found at the Dollar Tree. To remove as many of the pieces off of the jar as possible, she used a wet paper towel and actually scraped most of it off using her scraper tool from Cricut. She then used her zip sander to sand off any excess. After removing everything, she decided to put some scrapbooking paper over the top of the canning jar. To attach the paper to the jar, she used a glue stick and glued it right over the top of the whole entire jar.
