Upcycled Vintage Typewriter

The Vintage Mints Upcycled Vintage Woodstock Succulent Planter

I saw this wonderful TikTok Video Tutorial upcycling a vintage typewriter, and I KNEW when I saw it I HADE to MAKE it. The original artist is Roycycled and she saw this on Pintrest. Go Follow her, she’s awesome.

I’m not good with keeping plants alive I even manage to kill air plants. So I decided to change mine out from real to fake succulents so I knew I wouldn’t kill them. Here is my tutorial on how I did that.

DIY Upcycle Typewriter Video

Supplies Needed:

  • Vintage Typewriter (no working is best)
  • 1 foam floral block (Dollar store the 4 pack of small size)
  • Hot Glue Gun/ Hot glue

Step 1

I didn’t clean my typewriter, I wanted the dust and dirt, but you can clean yours if you want.

Step 2

Take one of the small floral foams and put it directly on top of keys. Press down firmly.

Then just started adding your fake succulents until you get them the way you want them. Then gently removed them one by one and add glue to the ones NOT inserted into the foam itself. To prevent shifting of the succulents that aren’t in your foam block.

And your done. Optional you can add a cute little note on printed paper and stick into the typewriter, adds a really cute finished look.

How to DIY Chalk Couture Deer Antler Autumn Porch Sign

IMG_1055

The How To DIY Fake Deer Antler Porch Sign

What you will need to make this:

Directions:

  1. Sand your wood with an Orbital Sander 220 grit is what I used
  2. Paint your wood board with white chalk paint, I used the walmart brand chalked and did NOT like it because my wood I was using had a veneer on it so it didn’t stick like other name brand chalk paints do. (amy howards one step, dixie bell, annie slone, maison blanche)
  3. Sand or distress with orbital sander, wipe dust off with cloth
  4. Do the Buffalo plaid using the storm paste and 4 in squeegee, I tried to use my plaid twice and messed up my pattern so wash/dry between chalking, should take you 3 times to cover the board.
  5. Once dry Then lay down Autumn transfer I cut it down the center and left AUT and UMN in together. Center it making sure it’s closer to the bottom so you can add the antlers at the top.
  6. Once dry seal with Krylon uv and other poly
  7. Take your two foam pieces and glue the antlers into them and then stick them through each other to make a more stable base. I didn’t have a large enough foam so if you have a larger block great.  IMG_1042
  8. Then hot glue down the foam also making sure to go around on the sides that touch the board.
  9. Once that is done, take your twine and wrap around board top, I did 4-5 times.
  10. Arrange your flowers how you like them and either put them in the foam or lay them on top and use another piece of twine to secure all in the middle.
  11. Add the raffia and secure with middle twine, than add your last CENTER flower hooking and gluing it over twine and using the twine also tie it on.
  12. Then take a few left over leaves and glue them around your foam block so they don’t show. 

  13. Done!

Banner Pennant Girl Scout Quilt

The idea of this quilt all started with a photo I pinned on Pinterest years ago. A beautiful collection of antique pennants sewn onto a quilt.  I never forgot that pin/photo.  Pictured here:

IMG_2381

Fast forward to 2018.  While in JoAnns Fabrics one day I passed by Girl Scout Pennant/Banner Felt fabric by the yard. I fell in love and the pennant quilt I had originally pinned several years ago came rushing back to me.  I didn’t buy the fabric that day. Instead I took a photo and posted on Facebook, anyone know a girl scout I want to make this quilt!  Then I remember my cousins daughter was in girl scouts. I called Layla, she’s 10 and said she would love a quilt. So my mind started turning with ideas and HOW to put it together.

After several days it came to me.  I didn’t want to make the quilt from scratch all I wanted to do was ADD the felt banners/pennants so why not use an already quilted quilt.  Searching I found a simple (not very thick) quilt at Target.  They didn’t have the color Layla liked so I ordered her favorite color of the quilt online at Target. Why did I choose a thin simple quilt?  First, I had to be think to add bulk on top of it so it had to be able to fit into my sewing machine so I could machine stitch the banners on top. Second I kept it simple solid color as to NOT over whelm the eye, a noisy pattern quilt would have distracted your eye from what you really wanted to see the banners/pennants.  Could I have made the quilt? Of course, however I like to speed things up so I bought one already made!

My JoAnns didn’t have the Daisy pennants so I ordered those online. The Girl Scout Ranking is Daisy, Brownie, Junior, Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador.  They do NOT make the Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador Pennants.  Since I own Digitizing software called HATCH by Wilcom AND I have an embroidery machine I made those pennants and I also did her Full name.

How did I get those OTHER felt pennants? I used the negative space from cutting out the original Brownie and junior pennants. Seen Here in RED outline.

IMG_1995RED

So I digitized/embroidered Cadette, Senior, Ambassador, Last Name, and her First Name.

After that we laid it out and prepared to machine sew the banners/pennants to the top of the already done simple quilt.

IMG_2484

You MUST use a walking foot!  YOU CANNOT DO THIS WITHOUT A WALKING FOOT.  I did a fancy stitch at first. DON’T DO THAT! Learn from my mistake, simple straight stitch to sew them down.  The two sides and the bottom.  I worked on sewing ONE at a time so I would then spray adhesive spray on the back of the pennant and stick it down where I wanted it. Then i lightly pinned it into place. Then I went and straight stitched it down on my machine.  Once I did that I took it and laid it back in the floor again and did the process all over again. DO NOT do more than ONE at a time the adhesive will NOT stay sticky long enough, and it will shift even with your pinning it down.  Slow and steady ONE pennant at a time. Easy straight stitch.

IMG_2509

Once you get them all down you then can do a decorative stitch OVER your simple straight stitch, AGAIN I REPEAT DO NOT STITCH IT DOWN USING DECORATIVE STITCHES FIRST.  They are so complex and dense that it will shift on you, no matter what, AND your walking foot does prevent some of the decorative stitches from stitching out correctly.

Once they were all down I decided NOT to use the hang tags on the pennants so I cut them off. Originally I was going to attach badges to them (front & back), but felt isn’t strong enough to hold them from being torn off. So I ended up cutting the hanging tabs off.

IMG_3601VM

I have never done prairie points before and I loved the look, I wanted those on this quilt to add a little bit more POW or POP to the finished quilt.  It took me days to figure out how to attach them on an already quilted quilt.  I didn’t want the raw edge showing and I didn’t want to add another binding, or rip out that binding and add the prairie points and re-stitch it back together.  What I ended up doing was using Ribbon! The edges of the ribbon shouldn’t fray and it would hide the exposed raw edges of the prairie points. Worked great! So I did a zigzag stitch on top of the quilt, prairie points, and ribbon. DONE!

DON’T FORGET TO PRE WASH EVERYTHING IN HOT WATER! EVERYTHING! fabric, felt, AND ribbon!

Lets talk price. How much did this quilt cost me to make. Well each yard of the felt cost me $15.99 to $12.99 Even with a discount. I bought a tad to much fabric but I plan on using the left overs for pillows for her. Pennant pillows, i had three banners left over from the quilt.  (this was also a pintrest idea) Cost of everything $234.67 in fabric and the pre done quilt. I spent 22 hours making this quilt also. So if you are going to make this be prepared for the cost, otherwise you can purchase a CUSTOMIZED one from me at my store WWW.THEVINTAGEMINT.COM
