Who goes to Target for just “Milk & Bread”? Please!?!
Do you ever walk through the Dollar Spot at Target & get the shakes? Or do the end caps at the end of aisles make you gitty even when you know are only supposed to be picking up milk & bread?!? Heck, who goes to Target for just milk & bread, lol! That is usually my MO, but I always come back with bags of stuff from the Dollar Spot. I think I might have a problem when my Target DollarSpot bags outweigh the regular grocery list bags. Yikes!
Anyhoo….so, during my hauls of Dollar Spot stationery & planner goodies I came across this small chalkboard that I just “had to have”!! You know that feeling! It was very plain, but I knew I could spice it up a bit. Plus, I would make it so the kiddos could use…….um, my lame excuse for bringing home another DIY since I am addicted to crafting. Of course, it needed some embellishments and I’d already picked up gold lettering on the aisle end cap (BAM, because you never know when you need gold lettering in your life!) that would go perfectly.
Let’s break it down……
Step 1……Put on your fav crafting music. At the moment mine is “You’re So Beautiful” from the Empire Cast. Makes me happy! 🙂
Step 2……Take your gold lettering & cut out your letters. I taped mine down just to make sure they would fit. I choose the word “Soar” since I thought it was very fitting that my kiddos have some motivation to work hard in all they do. Heck, who am I kidding….I also chose it because that bad boy had 4 letters & it fit perfectly! Jokes!!! No, really I do love the word. 🙂
Step 3…..Rubbed that gold lettering on. Easy-peasy! I couldn’t find the stick that went with the package, so I improvised and used the stick from a foam stencil brush. (Sidenote: You see that the gold didn’t transfer all the way in some spots….should have used the originial stick, ugh!!!)
Step 4…..Added some embellishments. You know every plannergirl or stationery addict has embellishments hanging around the house. Raising my hand high on that one! I had a wooden butterfly sticker I found at Michaels about 4 years ago & slapped that baby on. (Can you believe it was still sticky?) Then added some shiny bling from the dollar bins at Michaels along with a huge clothespin to tuck notes, etc. on the side.
Step 5….Stand back and admire!
I enjoyed this quick & cheap craft. There is a perfect nook on our kitchen bar where I can showcase this bad boy & write in a fav quote for the kiddos or an “I Love You” note. Total cost of this crafty craft….
~$1.78….Rub on Transfers (pack included 3 sheets of gold lettering & 194 Rub Ons. More gold = more fun!)
~Free…..Old embellishments bling
~Cha-ching…… = $4.78 …..love it!
So, when you are running into Target for “milk & bread” (really, lol!) what have you walked out with that you have loved or created? Please share so I know I am not the only crazy one! 🙂
