Free Printables! “To Do” and “To Pack” Lists

More free printables for you all! I am going to Singapore in a week (ahh!), and to get organized before the big trip I wanted to make myself a couple list printables. So I created a “To Do” list and a “To Pack” list and decided I wanted to share them with you as well! These come in handy before trips when you need to plan out what to get done before you leave and to make sure you don’t forget anything. And if you’re anything like me, you pack way too much stuff (always), and I’m hoping by sorting it all out beforehand I wont pack way too much. Because let’s be real, I’m going to pack at least a little too much. And also, the to do list works anytime obviously! Print a few out and use them weekly to sort out projects, house work, etc… I love using to do lists daily to plan out what projects need to be worked on and completed.

DIY Fall Mason Jar Vases

I love mason jars, and I really don’t want them to ever go out of style. For real, I’m always thinking of mason jar projects and looking some up on Pinterest. I picked up a few on my last visit to Michael’s and wanted to do something for our mantel for Fall. So I decided on using four of the jars, painting them white, painted on a letter on each to spell “FALL”, and put some flowers in each. And ta-da! A Fall mantel project that looks like you bought it!

Check out how I did it:

I just used a regular foam brush and an off white colored paint. I did two coats of the paint.


I then sanded a bit of the paint on each to give the jars a bit of a vintage feel. They seemed a little too perfect when they were painted white, and it wasn’t the vibe I was going for.


A close up of one of the jars so you can see what I mean about sanding a little bit of them:


I used some brown Martha Stewart acrylic paint to paint on the letters. I free handed them, so they’re not perfect, but hey I also wasn’t aiming for perfect!

I don’t have them up for good on the mantel for the season yet since it’s still technically Summer, but once they’re up there the pictures in the frames behind them will be changed to their Fall photos. I love changing those up for the seasons.


And here they are outside with some brighter lighting. I love them! I can’t wait to get them back up and have everyone see them. I have them sitting on our front porch right now and I’ve already had some compliments on them! A super easy project that took me about 1 hour to complete (mostly was waiting for them to dry too!).

Have a great rest of your week! Let me know if you end up trying this out, I’d love to see!

Fall Chalkboard Wood Slice DIY

I’ve been trying to think of some fun fall DIY projects for around the house and I totally had an idea a couple days ago. I had bought a wood slice from Michael’s a few weeks back, and have been trying to come up with cool painting ideas for these. Well – what about painting it with chalk paint?! Heck yea! Chalk paint has been my thing lately: chalkboard back-splash, chalkboard coasters, now I can add a chalkboard wood slice to the mix. This totally screams fall to me for some reason, so here it is, my first fall DIY of the year. But wait, why was summer only 10 days long? That’s usually how it goes though :(

Here’s what I used, it’s about 12″x9″ so it’s a pretty good size:

I added 2 layers of Valspar’s chalkboard paint (Rustoleum has a good version too, check theirs out here.) And then I started playing around! These would be awesome to display on Halloween or one that says “Welcome Autumn” would be awesome in cursive text.

Or you can keep it simple with a little welcome sign when guests come into your home.

The possibilities are endless with a chalkboard like this! Put them out at parties, around your home, they even sell small ones that would be so cute hung up! Or a big one hung on a door! I’m going to have way too much fun with this.

How I clean mine: I’ve noticed that with these, they’re a bit harder to erase than the normal chalkboard. Definitely don’t use a paper towel (wet or dry) because pieces of the paper will rip off and stick to the chalkboard surface. I used a spray bottle with a sponge brush to wipe off, and also found a damp wash cloth worked well too.

Let me know what you do with your chalkboard wood slices!
