If you’ve followed me on Instagram for awhile, you know that I’ve been making these mixed media Bucket Lists for a little over a year now. Every time I share one for the new season I’m asked how I put it together so today I’m going to show you how surprisingly easy these are to make for yourself!
I love making them because they help me remember all of the festive things I want to do each season with my kids and they also become a decor piece that are pretty to hang up!
- Foam Board (I like using the foam rather than poster board because you can stick push pins into them and easily change the Bucket List items out for the following year!)
- Fabric Scraps (Joann Fabrics and Crafts always has cute seasonal prints! They also sell fabric squares that you can find gems in!)
- Yarn, Trimmings, Pom poms (I even used some leftover tinself from Christmas last year and disco ball tiles on this one!)
- Hot Glue
STEP 1: Working left to right on the bottom of the board, start hot gluing your fabric and trimmings on covering up the white foam board. The first layer I try to cover as much space as possible so you’re going to want to mostly use fabrics to cover the board up!
STEP TWO: After the fabric is down I typically start going through and adding embellishments on top of it. For this board I used tiny fabric pumpkins, yarn that I braided, tassles and pom poms that I made (I have a pom pom tutorials on my Instagram Reels!)
STEP 3: After the board is completely covered, I cut up squares of card stock and write the Bucket List items on them. I then tack them to the board with push pins (these I covered with googly eyes for a spooky feel for Halloween!)
Looks amazing girl!! So much good detail.
