25 Farmhouse Style Garden Flags!

25 Farmhouse Style Garden Flags!

Hey guys it’s been a while, but what’s better then spending time with your family during this strange time with the corona-virus (COVID-19). Life has been a whirl wind and our little family has been working in the garden as far as cleaning it up a bit, adding borders, and putting down new mulch. Speaking of gardens, I’ve recently found a new love for garden flags Yes, I said garden flags! Particularly farmhouse style prints made on burlap, but some can totally pass for simple and chic. I picked out some fabulous finds from seasonal to greetings. 

It’s no secret I love to shop Amazon and they do have some great finds in different styles! Here’s one I ordered to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! It is so freaking cute!

I’ve ordered one for Easter of course, but now that has come and gone! Hope everyone has had a blessed Easter! Now my spring flag is out, soon I’ll which that out to mt Home Sweet Home Flag. Honestly, if I had the funds I would buy so much more! For now, just a little at a time.

The burlap seems to be made of good quality in my eyes and touch. I love that each one is double-sided. I’ve purchased 12 x 18 size garden flags. Amazon has a wide variety, from cute farm animals to the classic farm truck with beautiful flowers.

Since Easter is less than a month away, let’s not forget the cute spring flags with bunnies, easter eggs, birds and carrots. Just a reminder the garden pole is not included, you’ll have to purchase that separate. If you’re not looking to spend a lot on the garden flag pole, just check with your local Dollar Tree. It’s only $1!

Without further ado, let’s get started!

10 Spring and Easter DIY Crafts

10 Spring and Easter DIY Crafts

Happy Friday Y’all! Time is not my friend right now. The kiddos are home because of this crazy world-wide dilemma and I hope you all are safe, healthy, and finding ways to spend your time in isolation. I purchased a few spring and Easter decorations a while back, but not nearly enough. I probably could order online, but I prefer shopping in stores just to get a feel of things. Today, I’m so thrilled to finally share my spring and Easter home decor diy crafts. Let’s get to it!

1.The Bunny

This is the easiest of them all. 

Materials:

  1. Old mini calendar holder from Magnolia Market. I purchased about a year or two ago, but I’m pretty sure they no longer carry that item anymore.
  2. Little bunny from dollar tree hanging decoration.
  3. Hot glue sticks and glue gun.
  4. Spray paint or paint.
  5. Paint tray and paint brush.

What to do?

To begin I removed the bunny from its decorative piece and sanded off the glitter. The downfall to using Dollar Tree items is the glitter. Everything doesn’t need to have glitter. Next, I went outdoors and sprayed paint the bunny with Rust-oleum Charcoal chalk. (I didn’t have black paint on deck.) Wait wait wait! Ding! It’s finished drying. I allowed it to dry about 1 hour before securing it to the wood frame with glue. See, it’s that easy!

2. The Welcome Board

Oh, Hi There Spring!

Materials:

  1. Wood board
  2. Pencil
  3. Paints, paint brush, and paint tray
  4. Paint pen (optional)
  5. Twine (optional)

What to do?

Choosing whatever paint color my heart desired, I mixed purple with white. Then, I painted the wood board. After drying, I drew out the quote, “Oh, Hi There Spring!” and the picture onto the board. Next, I painted the tulips and the peek-a-boo bunnies of 3. Afterwards, I traced the lettering with a paint pen. You could paint the letters, you just need to have more patience. Taking twine, I wrap it around the board, tie it, and that’s that!

3. Window bunnies

Aren’t these just the cutest!

Materials:

  1. 2 bunny cutouts
  2. 2 wooden window frame
  3. Paint, paint brush, and paint tray
  4. 2 eggs shapes
  5. Hot glue sticks and gun

What to do?

For starters, I purchased these window frames from Wal-Mart a few years ago. They should still have them in the craft section. The bunnies were purchased from Dollar Tree, along with eggs that were part of a decorative item for Easter. I removed the eggs from the decorative piece and painted them white. After each dried, I then dried brush brown onto the eggs. Next, I painted one bunny brown mixing in white. The other bunny was painted a barn red, while mixing in white. After each bunny finished drying, I glued the eggs to the bunny’s foot. Instead of hot gluing the bunny to the window frame I used Command strips, so that I could easily remove the bunny. And that’s the end!

4. The Buffalo Check Pillow

Buffalo check in spring!

Materials:

  1. Buffalo check fabric
  2. Scissor
  3. Pillow Filling
  4. Glue gun and sticks
  5. Egg template (optional)
  6. Fabric pencil (optional)

What to do?

I cut-out the fabric by using a decorative egg sign I purchased from Dollar as a template.  Fold the fabric in half so when you cut out the shape you have two egg shapes. Match up the sides and lay one on top of the other. Next, I lifted the edge of the top layer and applied glue to the bottom layer. Continue to do this until you reach the top leaving an opening to insert your filling. After the insertion, secure the opening with hot glue. There’s your buffalo check pillow.

5. Happy Easter Basket

My favorite! I ran out of florals, but I absolutely love it!

Materials:

  1. Basket
  2. Happy Easter Sign
  3. 4 Wood stems/blocks
  4. Floral
  5. Paints, paint brush, and tray
  6. Hot glue gun and sticks

What to do?

The Easter sign came from Dollar Tree which I painted white, and then dried brushed red barn onto it. I took 4 wood stems and stacked 2 gluing them together, making 2 stacks of 2 wood stems. ( I hope you understand, oh the wood stems also came from Dollar Tree.) Glue the wood stems to the basket which I obtained from Walmart. Next, glue the sign to the wood stem. (Note: For added support, take a popsicle stick and glue to the back of the sign and wood stem.) Add your florals and glue each into the basket. (Note: If you have styrofoam, I suggest using that to help hold in the florals.) Lastly, I added two florals to cover up the holes on top of the sign. (Note: If you have wood filler, this could work as well.) Now you have a beautiful basket!

6. The Garland

Materials:

  1. Egg shape items
  2. Sand paper
  3. Scissors
  4. Ruler
  5. Decorative balls
  6. Twine, yarn, or ribbon
  7. Paint, paintbrush, and tray
  8. Hot glue gun and sticks

What to do?

Separate the eggs and sand off the glitter. Choose your paint and paint the eggs. The eggs came from a decorative easter item sold at Dollar Tree. (Note: I painted all but one egg.) Measure and cut the twine to the length you desire. Knot one end and measure the placement of the first item. Add the decorative ball and then the egg. Just repeat the pattern until the garland is complete. Knot the other end and you’re done. Easy peasy!

7. Framed Art

Make your drawing skills handy!

Materials:

  1. Paper
  2. Pencil
  3. Eraser (if needed)
  4. Picture frame or twine

What to do?

Search online to get an idea on how you want your bunny to look. Honestly, if you’re not the best drawer you could print out some bunny drawings from online. Once I figure out how to distribute files online, I will be happy to make templates for you. Until then, the internet has many options. I drew out my bunnies on paper just by looking at the image from my phone. Of course I had a few mistakes here and there, but I just erased and fixed each mistake. When you have the print you love, frame it!

8. Chalkboard Sketch

Similar to the frame art with those good old-fashioned hand drawings!

Materials:

  1. Chalkboard
  2. Chalk or chalk pencil

What to do?

Like the frame art, I’ve searched for the print online that I loved, and then drew it onto the board. I think the prints turned out lovely. What about you?

9. Spring Chick Frame

Oh, for peep sakes!

Materials:

  1. Art canvas wood frame or picture frame
  2. Wooden chick cut-out
  3. Paint, paintbrush, and tray
  4. Hot glue gun and sticks
  5. Paint pen/pencil?

What to do?

I painted the chick cut-out that I got from Dollar Tree a yellow while mixing in white to get my desired color. Next, I used an old canvas frame and turnt it vertically. (You can use a picture frame that’s big enough to fit the chick.) I placed a dab of hot glue on the centered top backside of the frame, then attached the loop the is connected to the chick. Just add more glue to secure and support the weight of the chick. After the glue has set. Using a paint pen, I wrote “Peep” on the front center of the chick. Oh, how cute!

10. Spring Wreath

Spring is here!

Materials:

  1. Wreath
  2. 3 mixed florals 
  3. Hot glue gun and sticks
  4. Lace 
  5. Twine
  6. Piece of wood or foam board for a sign
  7. Paint, paintbrush, paint pen, and tray

What to do?

I used a leftover mini sign from an item from another project and painted it. While that was drying, I arranged the floral, and then glued them to the wreath. Next, I wrapped what little lace I had left around the wreath and glued that as well. Cut enough twine to make a loop to hang the wreath. Using a paint pen I wrote “hello spring,” onto the sign, and then glued it to the wreath for the finishing touch!

Whoo! Thanks for hanging out with me today! Did I spark inspiration in you, I sure hope so! If you know others who may be interested in these crafts, share this post with them.

ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

Meeting Monique

Yup, that’s me! It’s nice to meet you!

Monique is a very shy (introvert) person. I’ve always  been since I was a little girl. I mean I do talk, but just around people I’m completely comfortable with. On the plus side, I am a great listener, so if you ever need to vent I am all ears! Growing up, I spent my days tracing and drawing. I guess you can say I have a thing for art. Photography also came into the play, I had an interest in taking photos. At least, I thought I was a photographer back then. I would go to school with my little boxed camera (you know the disposable one that you needed to take to CVS to have the film developed. . .Yep, that’s the one!) My mom would always take me to have the film developed. Being so anxious, I couldn’t wait to share the photos taken of classmates, friends, plants, the sky, and even the ground. 

Hi there!

Interest Sparked

Growing up, my dad worked in concrete construction. He even had his own small business that was named, Heard It’s Smooth Concrete Construction. Whenever he checked on a job site, my little sister and I tagged along in his white chevy pick-up truck. I loved seeing his job sites, but I hated the travels which were most of the time long. For me, it was always such a thrill to see his work, whether it was of a parking garage or the start of a basement for a future home. As we drove around, he would always point out to my sister and I where he completed a job. I may not have known it then, but now I can see how proud he was of his accomplishments.

Blacktop poured by my dad and crew!

Living back  off the road down a slightly long graveled path or as I always told friends “we live back in the woods.” What used to be an old dirt graveled road has become a smooth and less bumpy road, thanks to my dad. He poured our concrete driveway, the back patio, and even the sidewalk leading to the front door. I was in awe of how cool it is to do things yourself and be your own boss. As you can see in the picture below the front sidewalk is a mixture of rocks incorporated with the stepping stones that were there before. 

Oh, we’re off to see the wizard. . .

Why Blog?

Blogging is a new factor in my life. One, I never thought of doing until I remembered I used to have a wordpress account in my early 20’s for another purpose. Then I thought, “Hey! Why not give blogging a try?” Seeing other talented moms of many get it done and excel with their blog motivated me to begin my own blog journey. Though it is not an easy venture, it has been a fun and engaging learning experience.

Personally, the loneliness you may have by being a stay at home parent. If you’re anything like me, a mom who moved away from your family because of your fiance job or lost contact with old friends, then you understand how lonely it can be at times. I thought of using my blog as a personal outlet to express feelings and emotions, but then again who wants to read about my feelings, lol. Though, I do hope to share my artwork, home decor, mini crafts, woodwork, and little home projects with you.

Farmhouse Unique

Originally, I wanted to name my site “Home with Monique,” simply because my time is spent mostly at home with my youngest. Unfortunately, someone already had the name on twitter. So being quick on my toes, I created the name “Farmhouse Unique” with the slogan “Home with Monique.” Farmhouse Unique was created based on the fact that I love farmhouse styles. A little bit of rustic charm and the inspiration from Joanna Gaines had me sold and in love. Who knew shiplap was a thing? Not I, but I love it! It is quite beautiful and I would love to incorporate it into my home one day. As we all know “you must start somewhere and work your way up!”

Ideal Home

On this journey, I will slowly, but surely transition my home into my ideal farmhouse dream home. Though, I fear my ideal dream home won’t fully be displayed in our current home for multiple reasons, I will do my absolute best to achieve the possible.

My ideal home is a one floor ranch style with a beautiful front porch. The front porch would include wooden cedar post, shutters, and frontdoor. I love the look of cedar wood! The cedar look would be accompanied by a navy blue painted stucco, brick, or siding with white, but this is just option 1. Option 2 still includes the cedar wood, but the home would be painted white or  cream. There would be large front windows. Upon entering the home, the foyer would be roomy and open with built-ins for storage and sliding barn doors. Walls of shiplap. On the opposite wall there will be a beautiful farmhouse console with decorative items. A gorgeous open concept living area with a gorgeous mantled fireplace. A large spacious kitchen with a grand island with all the bells and whistles including my farmhouse sink I dream of having. A bright sunroom that could also be my art space. An office space with tons of built-ins for books. The children’s playroom that would also act as their livingspace. A warm cozy master bedroom with a spectacular view of nature’s finest. Omg! The master bath will have my freestanding tub (my ultimate desire) or a claw foot tub would go nicely too. Of course, double vanities will be preferred. Don’t forget the walk-in closet with built-in shelving units and drawers. Oh, and the closet’s secret compartment! To sum it all up, 5 bedrooms with 3 and a half bath. Perfect lighting throughout the home would be lovely! Omg, herringbone pattern is a must either the flooring or with the backsplash in the kitchen and bath. I simply adore it! The gracious green lawn with a beautiful landscape. 

`

Okay! Stop Dreaming and Wake-up to Reality. . .

Sighs! Yeah, that’s definitely not happening with this home, but hey it’s okay to dream. This home may lack the space that’s required to build my ideal home, but it does offer minimal projects I can tackle just to make it a little more homey and a little more farmy. Decor is always a game changer and my go-to to improve our family’s home. Now you know more about me, feel free to drop a comment below and share a little about you. Thanks for meeting Monique!

Simple changes can make everything right!

Wedding: Ideal Farmhouse Wedding

Wedding: Ideal Farmhouse Wedding

As a young girl, I always dream of one day getting married and having my dream wedding. It would be so beautiful and glamorous with lights, sparkle, and shine. Yes extravagant and all! As I’ve grown, I prefer more simple things in life and began to develop a love for farmhouse style. So why not a farmhouse wedding?

As an Amazon Affiliate, links are included, but are at no cost to you. I’ll earn a small commission from purchases made from the products linked in this post through the Amazon photos and the captions below. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I only recommend products that I believe are beneficial to my readers.  

Ideally, I would love to have a farmhouse styled wedding. When and where all depends on the time of year the mister and I decide to get married. Respectfully, I’m torn between the warm spring/summer time or the chill fall /winter time. See, the mister and I had our first date on December 1st and made that our yearly anniversary. Honestly, I would love to have an outdoor wedding, but if we do decide to have a winter wedding, December 1st would be the day! 

Why Aren’t You Married?

There are four fair reasons why we have been putting off our wedding. Reason #1: We started our family too soon, and they have become our main priority. Reason #2: I ideally would love to lose my baby weight from all 3 pregnancies and that’s a process by itself. Reason #3: We made it a mission to save up to take our kiddos to Disney World.They should have that opportunity to go at least once during their childhood! Reason #4: Curse you student loans! Yes, my student loans are collectively racking up as I remain a stay at home parent, but that’s another story for another time. 

It’s just another expense my fiance cannot take on at the moment because let’s be honest the federal government DO NOT care about any other expenses you have in your life and will take everything you have so they can get their damn money. So yes! This is the main reason why our wedding will remain just a dream for some time.

No worries! Our love is not determined by words on a piece of paper. Using my imagination and awesome farmhouse finds I will plan my dream ideal wedding. The venue will either be outdoors, while the reception will take place indoors with farmhouse style decorations. Nothing too extravagant, but simple with beauty to spare!

Ideal Wedding

Imagine an old country road or green field with trees, hay barrels, and a barn house nearby where the reception will be held. Wine barrels with beautiful greenery and white floral near the entrance leading up to the altar. A long aisle with rows of chairs, white or natural wood tone chairs (still undecided.) 

Wooden lanterns with lite candles placed at the end of each row lining up the aisle the soon to be bride (hey,that’s me) will walk down to meet her patiently waiting groom (my mister.) Behind the bride and groom will be a gorgeous engagement ceremony backdrop with a wooden frame draped with white sheer cloth, lights, and more of the beautiful greenery and white floral arrangements. 

Upon entering the barn, their two more barrels with the famous greenery and floral with a sign. String lights will hang from above. Straight back will be the bride and grooms table nicely decorated with another stunning backdrop. In the middle of the room will be the dance floor surrounded by round tables for guests. 

Each table topped with a white table cloth, more floral/greenery, candles, and small gift trinkets. There will be a nice rustic table with a sprinkle of greenery, floral, and lights, that will hold the gifts and unique guestbook near the entrance. Another long rustic table where drinks, appetizers, and the food will be served. Most importantly the room will be with people we love!

 Oh, did I mention most of the wedding decorations will be homemade with simple diy crafts and woodwork projects (which I’ll share in future posts.) This way our wedding can be inexpensive and on a budget! I will also include some cute farm decorative finds I found. Feel free to take a look below. 

Decorative Finds

A-frame Chalkboard

This can be used at the entrance of the venue and the reception area. Greeting your guest with a heartfelt message.

Wood Place Card Holder

Be organized and display table numbers or names while adding a decorative touch.

Can’t forget the wedding planner to help you stay on schedule and on budget all while planning your big day!

Artificial Vine Faux Eucalyptus

The greenery can be used for table decorations, backdrops, and so on.

This beautiful sheer chiffon can also be used to decorate the table as well as a backdrop.

This gorgeous lantern can be used down the aisle, and again to decorate the tables and backdrops.

Wooden Crates

These gorgeous beauties can definitely be used near the entrances, around the bride and groom table set up, and/or the backdrop.

Letter Board

The letter board can be used to display a greeting, the menu, a message, or a love quote. Get creative!

Galvanized Serving Tray

Decorative purposes or serving delicious treats or appetizers.

Wood Slices

These wood slices can be used as coasters, small gifts engraved with a message for your guest, or just plain old decorations.

Wooden Guestbook Sign

This keepsake will be a perfect addition to your home once your party guest sign. You get to remember all those who showed their love and support. Most of all, you also get to share it with your kiddos!

Floral Hanging Wreaths

These stunning wreaths will look perfect hanging from above, across the entire room. They can be used along the walls, hanging from the trees and featured in the backdrop.

  • Paint
  • Paintbrush or sponge
  • Hot glue gun

Note: Most materials you can obtain from The Dollar Tree. The ribbon and floral came from a wedding bouquet I caught! ( Fun fact: My fiance caught the garter.)

Step 1: Remove tag from the wreath. Prepare a mixture of paint and water to give the wreath a whitewash effect. Using a paintbrush, begin to paint the wreath. 

Step 2: Wrap the ribbon around the wreath. You can do as much or as little as you like, and then secure it with hot glue.

The caught bouquet is now a beautiful wreath!

Step 3: Select and arrange your florals in a pattern you find appealing to your taste. After you found the layout that speaks to you secure with more hot glue.

My Top 5 Valentine’s DIY Crafts: Part 3

My Top 5 Valentine’s DIY Crafts: Part 3

Hello my fellow crafters! Here’s to a new day and a lovely craft to share. Today, I’m sharing my third craft. Hurray, we’re halfway there! Making each craft has been fun and frustrating at the same time, (my son barely lets me do anything, lol.) Today Valentines craft is called, “Jar of hearts,” just like the song by Christina Perri.

Jar of hearts

Materials & Tools:

  • Glass jar (I used 2 from Dollar Tree)
  • Twine (optional)
  • Glittery Vase Fillers (optional)
  • 1 construction paper or vinyl
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Hot glue gun
  • Gluesticks
  • Knob(s)

Step 1: Wipe your jar clean (soap and water, or rubbing alcohol will do.)

Step 2: Fold your paper in half. Use scissors to cut-out a heart shape. If you are doing more than one jar, cutout as many hearts as you need. Also, if you need to draw your heart out, go for it!)

Note: If using paper take tape to adhere to both the heart and the jar. This will be tricky when it comes time to paint your jar. I suggest using vinyl to avoid getting paint between the heart and the glass.
I mixed my white and dark pink to get my light pink color. It took 2 coats of paint.

Step 4: Once your heart is attached. Choose your paint color and begin to paint your jar.

Step 5: After allowing the jar to dry, remove the heart. Since I use paper, paint got in between the jar and the heart. It wasn’t too bad, I just scraped the excess paint off by using a toothpick.

Step 6: This next step is optional. Fill the jar with a filler. You can use rocks, sand, lights, or even add a candle. 

Finish jars of hearts, so I thought!

Step 7: With or without the lid while using hot glue, you can choose to wrap twine or a ribbon around the top, and then tie it into a bow. 

Now pose for the camera. . .click, click! You’re Jar of hearts is complete to add to your beautiful Valentine’s day decor. Be sure to send your pictures of your crafts via social media or email. I would to see them! What would you do differently? Let’s chat in the comments below!  

If you haven’t already have a peak at craft #1 and craft # 2. Until tomorrow my loves!

My Top 5 Valentine’s Day DIY Craft: Part 2

My Top 5 Valentine’s Day DIY Craft: Part 2

Hey loves! Who’s ready for day two of the Valentine’s day decor diy? Me, me! If you’re new here, welcome! Today, I’ll be sharing my next Valentine’s day craft. I’m calling it “the heart box!” Shall we begin…

The Heart Box

Materials & Tools:

  • Art decor box (dollar tree find)
  • Metal heart (retrieved mines from a dollar tree sign)
  • Twine (dollar tree)
  • Ribbon (dollar tree)
  • Paint (your choice)
  • Paint Brush 
  • Hot Glue Gun 
  • Gluesticks
  • Sandpaper or Sanding Block
Decor box found at The Dollar Tree in the Valentine’s Day seasonal section.

To get started, take the box and scrap the flower off (your box may differ as there are different prints sold at The Dollar Tree.) I used scissors to complete this process, but I suggest using a putty knife. Grab sandpaper or a sanding block and sand the area so that it’s smooth. Be sure to wipe the area clean, free of dust. 

Sanding to smooth the area. Don’t forget to wipe the residue off.

Next, I mixed my three paints together as I did in my previous post (see here) to get my desired pink color. Use a paint brush to brush on the paint, then allow to dry.

After drying, add a dab of  hot glue to secure the tip of the twine to the back of the box. Next, wrap the twine around 4 times. Cut, and then glue the twine to secure in place. Repeat for the remaining 3 sides. 

Applying hot glue to the metal heart, place it to the center of the box. Cut your desired length of the ribbon of your choice and make it into a bow. Add a dab of hot glue and place the bow at the top of the box. There’s your beautiful Valentine’s Day diy decor piece! Another simple and easy win!

I hope you all enjoyed! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out “The Love Sign” in my previous post. Tomorrow, I will introduce my next diy Valentine’s Day decor! Until next time loves!
