1. Vision Board

new years craftsGet a jump on 2019 by getting organized and projecting your goals into the world. We all know about New Year’s resolutions, but we also all know how hard it can be for a lot of us to actually stick with our goals. By making a vision board, you have no choice but to see your goals to fruition as the board will serve to remind you every day of your future plans and aspirations. This board was made using a picture frame, chicken wire, and a wooden board painted with chalkboard paint. Once assembled and painted, you can attach any photos, images, quotes, schedules, etc. to your vision board by clipping them onto the wire backing of the frame. This fun yet functional home décor piece is perfect to hang in your bedroom, garage, or anywhere where you will constantly view it.



2. Custom Wood Pallet Signs

Simply paint, distress and personalize your wood pallet sign. Hand paint or choose from a variety of stencils to write your family name and year, an inspirational quote, or even denotate where the bar is (if you’re going for the New Year’s party route). Hang up anywhere in your house or lean it up against the wall. You can also display your wood pallet sign on your front door or on your porch, welcoming both guests and the new year.

You can match it to your overall home color scheme or whichever room you’re planning on displaying it in, or make it New Year’s Eve-appropriate with black, white, and metallics. Use the layered cup pour technique combined with a flow medium to unveil your one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Look online or visit a Pinspiration for mixing and pouring instructions. All you need to worry about is where you want to proudly display your creation and how many more acrylic paintings you’ll want to make once you see the incredible results




4. Jar Crate

To start off, paint your caddy to whatever shade you desire. For more of an everyday décor piece, stick to painting it a neutral color. However, if you are using the caddy for your 2019 kickoff event, keep to the classic New Year’s colors such as black, white, and metallics. While the caddy paint is drying, paint your mason jars (if you don’t want to leave them clear). Make sure the jars are completely dry before assembling the crate. Lastly, decide on what you want to fill the jars with. These mason jars are great for organizing and displaying a variety of objects from utensils and party necessities to stationary and candy. The item possibilities and combinations are endless!
