Creating Curb Appeal

No From this to that Friday this week. I am in the middle of a few projects that will make it here, but not there yet! So here are a few little things I have done lately instead.

Working on curb appeal since our house is getting ready to be listed. I took the "hello" and shrunk it and stuck it on my flower pot on the front porch. I love the way it looks. It really dresses it up. This is a great option if you are renting or don't want it on the door. Super cute!

(I also took all of my flower pots that were orange, green, and tan and painted them all this bronzey color. Love the look now. Different shaped pots, but all coordinated in color. I have several more on a plant stand, that I plan to post soon.)

 These other pics aren't about curb appeal, but thought I would share. I have wanted to give vinyl as a gift before...not applied to anything, but how do you wrap that? Doesn't look too exciting getting an envelope. lol  BUT...I found these tubes at a dollar store and thought, hey! That would work great! So...I bought them out. haha

This one was for a soon to be bride, so I added their new monogram on the outside and put several vinyl pieces inside (including more monograms).

For that price, it's cheaper to even use them as mailing tubes. lol

And for this last's a sneak peak! Bet you can't guess what I am doing with this chipboard and some washi tape...nope, it's not for papercrafing!
Come back next week to see what I do with it and other projects I'll be finishing up! Plus I'll be posting teacher appreciation gifts soon that I made (that will work as End of Year gifts as well)!

Happy Mother's Day and thanks to all you teachers out there that give so much!

I love what you did with the pots. It makes me want to do that...if I had any. I am not a big fan of the orange pots so this is a great idea.
Way to score on the tubes.
