DIY Chic Farmhouse Wooden Riser for Display

Add a touch of country charm to your home decor. Get ready to fall in love with the do-it-yourself farmhouse riser. A SIMPLE yet stunning piece that will elevate your interior style to a whole new level! ✨

Difficulty level: Beginner
Time to complete:40 minutes

What is needed:

Let’s grab your paintbrushes, channel your inner artist, and let get crafting!

Step One – Painting

Here you will paint both plaques the desired color of your choice. Here i wanted to stick with that weathered chic look using my chalk paint in white. I brushed on a good amount on he top but left the sides showing some of the wood.

Step Two – Sealing

After the paint was dry on both plaques, i then came in with my Mod Podge. This will help protect the surface from scratches.

Here you are able to really see how I left the sides. I love this look as it just adds more character to the item itself.

Step Three – Add the details

This step, i came in with the 3/4 inch wooden balls. I left them as their natural unfinished look. This I really felt gave it that chic, farmhouse vibe.

I hot glued the wooden balls in place along the whole edge of one of the wooden plaques. Now for extra hold. You can use gorilla glue and outline the whole edge of one of the plaques. Then come in and hot glue as well. This will help with a quick glue and then also add extra long lasting hold.

Step Four – Create the base

After the 3/4 inch wooden balls have all dried into place. We want to finish the base and place the second painted plaque on top. Here i went through with the gorilla glue and dabbed each ball with a nice pea size. Then on the corners, I added a line of hot glue. This will help hold in place while the gorilla glue dries.

Now you have a completed firm base for your riser!

Step Five – Create the feet

Here i grabbed 4 of the 1-1/2 inch wooden balls. I went through and painted them with the same white chalk paint.

After they were all dry, i then took the gorilla and hot glue gun to help adhere the feet to the bottom plaque.

There you have it! Your chic farmhouse riser is complete. Whether you place it on your dining table, kitchen counter, or even as a centerpiece on your living room coffee table, this farmhouse riser is guaranteed to steal the show!

DIY Wooden Bumblebee for Decorating

This is a EASY, yet fun project to help add cute and whimsical touches to your home decor, parties, and school settings! Add these bumblebees to table decors, centerpieces, or even attach to your wreath forms for a special touch for the warmer days ahead! These are fun for kids and adults- customize to your liking. Add faces or antennas for more of a cute look!

Things you’ll need:

Let’s gather your supplies and let’s get crafting!

First step – Applying the mod podge

Grab the round and/or Heart cutouts that are about 4.5 inches. You will apply a even coat of the Mod Podge to the cutout.

Second Step – Add your wallpaper

You will take the honeycomb wallpaper and apply it on the top of the cutouts that you painted the layer of mod podge to. Take a credit card to help even out the bumps and wrinkles.

Third Step – Trimming

Here i tried the damp paper towel to help get a nice close tear off with the paper but it took to long. I took a pair of scissors and was able to cut the paper at a angle to get nice and close.

Next apply a coat of mod podge on top to allow the paper to seal.

Fourth Step – Create the stripes

Here you will take 3 stripes of painters tape to lay out the “bee” strips on the cutout.

Fifth Step – Paint the stripes

Come in with your black paint and paint the yellow areas showing on your cutouts. This will help create a nice straight line.

Sixth Step – Paint the body parts

Here you will grab the smaller size circle and heart cutouts. I used a 2 inch round cutout for the head and 2 heart cutouts that measured at 2.5 inches.

The round cutouts i painted black for the heads. Then white for the 2.5 inch heart cutouts for the wings.

Seventh Step- Assemble the bee

You will take your hot glue gun and glue the head and the wings in place.

Eighth Step – Attach the accessories

I grabbed some left over ribbon that i had from other projects. This was a 3/8″ black and white ribbon that went well. Tied this into a nice fancy bow. Then i added a bow out of twine to help add more contrast.

Here you can also add a face or antennas. Customize this to your liking.

This is great for wreath makers or and summer themed decor/parties.
