I know it is a lot of painting but this DIY Camp Crystal Lake sign turned out fabulous. Now we have another awesome piece of covert nerd décor in our home which is my favorite way to decorate. In fact, this piece could easily be left out year-round since there is nothing about it that screams, “Halloween”. If you decide to display this outside be sure to spray the entire piece with a protective sealant so that it doesn’t get ruined. I would also recommend bringing it inside during storms. Now it is time to see what my friends created for this month’s Movie Monday Challenge. Definitely stop by and give them some love!

See where I’m linking up!

On the last Monday of each month, a group of bloggers participate in a #MovieMondayChallenge, hosted by C’mon Get Crafty! We decide on a topic, genre, or specific movie to use for inspiration and everyone gets free reign to create something wonderful!

This month’s challenge was. . . . HALLOWEEN!!!! Everyone was allowed to choose their own favorite Halloween-themed film for this challenge.

Now let’s see what everyone else was inspired to create for this month’s #MovieMondayChallenge!! If you’d like to join our Facebook group, you can request an invite here.

Even the icing recipes are fast and easy. Find out how to take your breakfast game to the next level with the recipes below.

Quick breakfasts don’t have to be limited to cereal and Pop Tarts. These easy homemade pumpkin spice donuts are a delicious grab and go breakfast!

After our grocery freeze earlier this year I’ve been trying to buy only food needed for our meal plan. It has been fantastic because it means less food waste. (If you haven’t tried a grocery freeze yet, you should totally check it out.) This new method of shopping has a small downside. Earlier this week we still had one day until grocery day and we were out of breakfast food. Instead of running out to buy something I decided to surprise the kids with donuts. Of course, in full pumpkin mode still, these easy homemade pumpkin spice donuts were created using staples we already had.

DIY Wooden Geometric Fox Wall Art

This week we are continuing to move forward with the boys room makeover. The kids love seeing it all start to come together. I am also super excited because the storage piece I ordered has arrived, as well. Of course, you know that I have to tweak it some. That is just what a chronic DIY-er does. The storage post will be coming your way soon. Today, however, as promised we are making this awesome DIY wooden geometric fox wall art. It is inspired by the metal wall art available at Hobby Lobby but I wanted to create something a little more rustic.

Materials

  • Collected Sticks
  • Laminated Mat or Parchment Paper
  • Black Washable Marker
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Cutting Mat
  • Utility Knife

Step 1

First, bake your collected sticks in the oven at 250ºF for 1-2 hours.

Tip:

  • You can place them straight on the oven rack.

Step 2

Let the sticks cool before working with them.

Step 3

While your sticks cool, pull out your laminated mat.

Tips:

  • Parchment paper will be easy to pull off of your glued sticks but you will have to get a new sheet to draw your fox on if you mess up.
  • The laminated mat is more tedious to remove the artwork from but you can wash off any drawing mistakes you make with the marker.

Step 4

Next, draw the bottom of your fox face as pictured.

Step 5

Continue drawing the outline of your fox face and the ears.

Tip:

  • Make sure your lines are straight. You do not want any curved lines.

Step 6

Then fill in the interior lines, eyes, and nose of the fox.

Step 9

Next, start gluing the joints with that glue.

Step 10

Continue adding glue until all of your joints are secured.

Tips:

  • Some joints may need to be held together until the glue has begun to cool.
  • If your sticks are not straight it causes the joints not to line up well for gluing. Add small pieces of stick underneath that curved piece at the joints to strengthen the glue bonds.

Step 12

Add the eyes and nose then allow the glue to dry completely.

Step 13

Next, carefully remove the fox from your mat.

Tip:

  • I used the tiny spatula from this kit to get under the glue in some spots.

Repair any areas that come apart or weaken during removal and let the glue dry

This DIY woodland explore artwork is super easy to make. With some paint and glue you will have a unique piece of décor for your children’s room.

Step 1

First, cover your stretched canvas with black acrylic paint.

Tip:

  • Don’t worry too much about painting the edges because they will be covered later in the project.

 

This DIY woodland explore artwork is super easy to make. With some paint and glue you will have a unique piece of décor for your children’s room.

Step 2

Next, use a ruler to draw 2 parallel lines that are 10 inches long and 3 inches apart.

Tip:

  • If you make a mistake, do not erase it. If you do then you will mess up the black background. Simply re-draw the lines correctly and we will fix mistakes later.

Step 3

Add triangles and lines at each end as pictured above step 2 to turn them into arrows.

Tip:

  • Again, do not erase any mistakes.

 

This DIY woodland explore artwork is super easy to make. With some paint and glue you will have a unique piece of décor for your children’s room.

Step 4

Draw the word “EXPLORE” centered above your arrows. (The picture already has green paint to show you the difference between the messed up area and corrected area.)

Tip:

  • This is an excellent example of not erasing your mistakes. The first time I drew “EXPLORE” it wasn’t centered so I had to re-do it.

 

This DIY woodland explore artwork is super easy to make. With some paint and glue you will have a unique piece of décor for your children’s room.

Step 5

Next, cover the pencil lines of the word “EXPLORE” with green paint.

Step 6

Fill in any of the round parts of the letters with green paint.

Step 7

Continue by covering the lines of the arrows with green paint.

Step 8

Allow all of your paint to dry completely.

Step 9

If necessary, add a second coat of green paint and allow it to dry.

 

This DIY woodland explore artwork is super easy to make. With some paint and glue you will have a unique piece of décor for your children’s room.

Step 10

Next, go back over any pencil mistakes you made with black acrylic paint and let it dry.

Boys Dresser Makeover with Extra Storage

Have you ever taken on a project that kicked your butt? When you are planning a project the steps seem easy on paper. Of course, then you start making it and holy cow! It takes so much more time and energy than you expected. It can be discouraging. There is a silver lining, though. When you finally finish the project there is an amazing sense of accomplishment. That is exactly how I felt when I finally finished this boys dresser makeover with extra storage. The paint style took forever but the kids absolutely love it. Their reaction makes all of the hard work totally worth it.

Materials

  • Old Dresser
  • Flat Black Latex Paint
  • Flat Light Grey Paint
  • Small Paint Roller
  • Roll of Paper Towels
  • Hanging Jewelry Organizer (I got ours at Target)
  • Nails
  • Hammer
  • Small Basket

Ever taken on a project that kicked your butt? That is exactly how I felt finishing this boys dresser makeover with extra storage but it's totally worth it!

Step 1

First, remove all of the drawers from your dresser.

Step 2

Next, paint your dresser and drawers with your flat black paint and small paint roller.

Note:

  • Our dresser was already painted black years ago so we didn’t do this step but you will want to start with a black painted dresser to get the desired end result.

 

Ever taken on a project that kicked your butt? That is exactly how I felt finishing this boys dresser makeover with extra storage but it's totally worth it!

Step 3

After your dresser is black (and the paint has dried), begin adding your grey paint. Do this by dipping a crumpled paper towel into the paint and dabbing it onto your dresser.

Tips:

  • Don’t add too much paint at once. A small amount goes a long way.
  • This takes a long time but you don’t want to rush it.

Step 4

Continue the process in step 3 until your dresser and drawer faces are covered.

Step 5

Allow the paint to dry completely.

Step 6

Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you have the desired effect.

Note:

  • We did 3 coats on our dresser.

Step 7

Return all of the drawers to the dresser.

Step 8

Next, add the hanging organizer to the right side of the dresser by nailing the corners of it to the dresser.

Tips:

  • Make sure your nails are short. You don’t want the tips to affect the drawers on the inside.
  • If your dresser isn’t made of thick wood or you simply don’t want to permanently change it, attach your organizer with Command hooks or strips.

Step 9

Lastly, add a small basket to the left side of your dresser with heavy duty Command strips.

Tips:

  • Hang the basket a little above the mattress height of your child’s bed.
  • Your basket needs to be flat, not curved. Curved baskets can come away from the Command strips and/or the dresser.

Ideas for How to Use the Extra Storage

 

Ever taken on a project that kicked your butt? That is exactly how I felt finishing this boys dresser makeover with extra storage but it's totally worth it!

Hanging Jewelry Organizer

The hanging jewelry organizer is perfect for cars, figurines, and other small toys. The one that we got has loops at the bottom intended to hold scarves. These loops hold larger action figures. Slide the feet through and use the arms to keep them from sliding all of the way through.

Basket

Because the boys’ room is so small, we are removing the bedside table. Our oldest likes to read in bed, though, so we wanted him to have somewhere to put his book and headlamp. The basket is the perfect solution. It holds the items and we placed the dresser next to his bed for convenience. This leaves the last wall in the room free for toy storage.

 

Ever taken on a project that kicked your butt? That is exactly how I felt finishing this boys dresser makeover with extra storage but it's totally worth it!

Whew! Now that we have finally finished the boys dresser makeover with extra storage we can move on with this giant project. Next up are some of the pieces of wall art. These are going to be a lot more fun to create. I have to admit that I am thinking of adding stenciled numbers to the drawer faces. I know, I’m glutton for punishment. It wouldn’t take much time, however, and I think it would add a little extra design punch to the dresser. What do you think? Are stenciled numbers a good idea or not worth it? Let me know in the comments!
