Do you save the cork when you open a bottle of wine? Every time we open a bottle, we toss ours in to a tall vase. We’ve been saving for years, and now that our cork vase was full (again) I decided it was time to do something with all of those corks – it was craft time.
A few months ago, we found K the perfect little desk, and I have been slowly filling it with fun accessories. But I haven’t been able to find her a pencil holder that I really liked. Temporarily she had them on a small tray, but they were getting out of control. So I decided to make one.
We enjoyed making heart sun catchers for Valentine’s Day so much, making a summer star sun catchers for 4th of July was a must. In addition to being pretty hanging in the window, I love that this craft is made with materials you can find around your house. Great for a last-minute project on a rainy day. If […]
Summer is the perfect time to try new crafts, especially on rainy afternoons. If you are in search of an easy and entertaining craft that results in a cute 4th of July decoration this is your project. I expected my girls to decorate maybe 10 coffee filters before moving on, but nearly two hours later we decorated more than 50 […]
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape Brand Painter’s Tape for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I have a fondness for canvases – photos, quotes, art – I think everything looks better on a canvas. And my home is decorated with a number of canvases, both seasonal and year […]
After my successful creation of heart-shaped bath bombs for Valentine’s Day (or any time), I am obsessed with making my own bath bombs. It is so easy, and the kids love them. They also make a fantastic gift. After making homemade Easter Eggs Sidewalk Chalk, I realized I could also make Homemade Easter Egg Bath […]
I am so in love with this project. It was inspired by a trip to Walmart where I discovered chalk Easter eggs among the Easter display. As soon as I saw them I thought, “Hey, I could make those.” I have seen people make their own sidewalk chalk using toilet paper rolls to form the […]
I have been known to make overly complicated decorations for parties. But sometimes, it is the easy decorations that are the most striking. As is the case with these hanging jellyfish decorations from my daughter’s The Little Mermaid Party (also to be used for my daughter’s Octonauts party later this month). So pretty, right? And really, […]
Is there anything more relaxing than a soak in the tub? Maybe an uninterrupted soak in the tub. Ahhhh… Bath bombs are an easy gift to make to either keep on hand for yourself or give to friends, teachers… anyone who needs a little R&R. Making them seems complicated, and when I tell people I […]
When planning my daughter’s The Little Mermaid Birthday Party, I knew right away that our little mermaids had to have homemade tails. It was a must. So I did what any crafty, DIY mom would do and hit up Pinterest. I saw several versions of tails made out of a beach towel, but our party […]
Yesterday was the last day of winter break for my Kindergartener, so to celebrate we decided to get crafty for Valentine’s Day. I love the way our sun catchers turned out so much, they may stay up long after Valentine’s Day. After all, what’s a playroom without a few handmade hearts? This is a super […]
My family is very fortunate. It is hard not to take that for granted sometimes, but we try to remember how lucky we are and teach our girls to have giving hearts. I believe in the magic of Christmas, and while there is need all year round, the idea of spreading a little extra joy […]
As we head into the holiday season, it is time for my Popsicle Ambassadorship to end. We’ve had a lot of fun eating a LOT of Popsicles (and Fudgesicles!), and we saved every stick for crafts — every stick. We keep making fun crafts, and yet my supply of sticks doesn’t seem to have diminished […]
There are hundreds of uses for Baking Soda, but in our house we like to use Baking Soda for crafts and activities. (Don’t get me wrong, it is also my go to cleaner for scrubbing and keeping our fridge fresh, but playing with Baking Soda is so much more fun!) With winter break just around […]
