I love redecorating my house for each season with the easy DIY decor. For spring and Easter, this fabric cross on wood was something I wanted to add to our decor. Using light and bright colors is fits for spring then flows into Easter without having to change much of my decor. I love double duty decor, don't you?
Easy DIY Decor – Easy Spring Fabric Cross on Wood Decor
You can find most everything at your local craft store or the store my husband hates letting me into, Hobby Lobby. I always get in trouble on that store and when hubby sees the bags he rolls his eyes! The last time I walked out of the store we also happen to come home to box full of buttons. Hubby thought I was nuts but it did allow me to make some of my favorite DIY Decor like my DIY Snowman Button Art and Valentines Day Crafts – DIY Button Art Heart Decor. I have a few more button ideas up my sleeve too!
You can change up the color of this craft and make it your own. I also had a hard time deciding between the chevron burlap and burlap and lace ribbon. Both would look amazing.
Craft Wood plaque I used a size 11″ x 8 1/2.”
Wood stain (color of choice)
2.5″ Coral wire-lined ribbon
1.5″ Burlap Chevron wire-lined ribbon
Hot glue/hot glue gun
First, you want to lay a few pieces of newspaper down in a well-ventilated area (outside works the best, the stain smell is very strong). Then put your piece of wood down and use your foam paint brush to paint on your stain and let dry completely
Once your wood board is dry, wrap a piece of your coral ribbon around the center vertically and hot glue to the back of the board.
Now about 1/3 way down tie a piece of thread around the center of the ribbon into a double knot.
About 1/3 way down, where you tied your knot, wrap another piece of coral ribbon around your board horizontally. Then tie a piece of thread around the center of that ribbon as well.
Measure and cut an 18″ inch piece of your burlap ribbon and fold into a bow, making the front loops about 4 1/2″ inches wide. Next cut a 10″ piece of ribbon and glue the ends to the center, and glue that to the back of your bow so that it creates a double bow look
Tie a piece of thread tightly around the center of your bow.
Cut off any excess length from the ends, then cut a triangle from the center of the ribbon ends to create two points. The glue the ends onto the wood board and you are ready to go!
I am a mom to 5 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
