Paint a Crackle Finish- 3 Easy Steps!

I want to share with you a simple painting technique! Using a few dollar store wooden frames and supplies that you most likely already have in your home, this project comes to life quickly! Painting a crackle finish adds a rustic touch and fun texture to your project. Turn a boring frame into something exciting!

Decorating can be a hassle.  Especially when you aren’t sure of color schemes and don’t have a ton of money to spend.  I personally spend a bunch of time decorating with things like toilet paper tubes and disposable aluminum pans.  I’m a cheapskate at heart.

Now that we live full time in our RV as we travel, I have even less opportunity and space to express my decorating whims. Every single thing that I put in my home now needs to have a purpose.

This post also includes more unique Painting Ideas!  So be sure to keep reading for lots of inspiration!

I’m SO excited to be guest posting over at Kenarry: Ideas for the Home today sharing all of the instructions for this project!  You can find the full details, and lots of photos of this easy technique for creating a Crackle Finish HERE!

Jar O’ Nutcracker Spoons with Free Pattern

Jar O Nutcracker Spoons

One of my favorite things to collect over the years for Christmas was fun and colorful nutcrackers.  When I sold my house a few years ago, I sold everything in it including my nutcracker collection.  Living in a motorhome means not much room for decorations.

So this week, I decided to create a batch of tiny nutcrackers made from wooden spoons.  And I’ve included a free pattern for you to make your own!  You can find it HERE!
