Last weekend I made this DIY project with the boys, it's really easy to make and I can assure that you're gonna have fun! You'll need: confetti, one balloon, Mod Podge, a sponge and a small vase. Inflate your balloon, then insert it on to the vase so it's sturdier to work with. Add Mod Podge to the top half of the balloon with a sponge, then sprinkle confetti all over, let it dry and add another coat of glue and confetti, you will need to add several coats until you achieve a thick coat. Let it dry for 8-10 hours.
Thanksgiving Break Projects
So, I think this might be my favorite DIY to date. It’s just so practical and pretty! A few friends and I decided we would get together once a month for an all day craft day. Just to create pretty things, simply for the sake of creating. Weather it be something we wear, or something for our homes, decorations for the holidays, or even little somethings for our babies. I tend to get wrapped up in projects for other people that I fail to do all the projects I want to do for myself!
As this school year draws to a close, I can’t help wanting to get ready for next school year. The cost of purchasing all the clothing, shoes and school supplies for 4 kiddos at the same time makes me want to hyperventilate a little bit. If I can spread out the expense over the three month vacation, it sure wouldn’t hurt! My girls love these notebook covers. They are great for covering composition books that kids seem to use up like it’s paper – oh I guess it is paper !
Several years ago my oldest daughter came home with a handcrafted gift for me that she made in art class. The box she presented me was just as special and pretty as the unique and pretty handmade ceramic necklace it contained. Using scrapbook paper she folded two separate pieces, origami style, to create a delightful little gift box. I’ve made many since then – decorating areas of my home with scrapbook paper that match my home’s decor and stacking the boxes. The only materials you’ll need are two sheets of 12 X 12 coordinating scrapbook paper which you’ll fold using the technique below. You can actually use any size scrapbook paper you’d like.
We have suspended streaming our four flagship radio stations, #ALLIN, indigo, Downhome, and Meta. Thank you to the over 1 million listeners who checked us out and connected with what we put out there. It was our goal to offer a new generation radio they could relate to, with modern production and personalities, awesome music mixes, and lifestyle stories.
Happy Fashion Friday! I have a super fun arts and crafts project for my beautiful little bunnies to try over the holiday weekend! I love buying new clothes, but sometimes I love making them even more! I started college as a fashion design major, so I have always been a little crafty when it comes to recycling old T-shirts. This has to be my new favorite DIY reclaimed shirt.
I’m really diggin the whole hippy thing. And while Craig is quick to correct me on the fact that dream catchers are not hippy-ish, I still think of them that way. Natural, care free, simple. All things I relate to those old hippies. hah.
Lately I keep coming across the most adorable button crafts. I seriously want to do them all. The Freckled Nest has two fantastic button crafts that are so cute I had to share them both. First, Spring Button Flowers - This is adorable and I love the simplicity of it.
I always have trouble tossing empty Altoids cases, because they make the perfect mini containers for so many little things. And when I realized they were the ideal size for holding credit cards and business cards, the DIY light bulb went off flashing in my head. I now use my upcycled Altoids tin to carry all my essentials including my ID, credit card, cash, lipstick and sticks of gum...yup, they all fit! You can use these little cases for just about anything including gift cards, office supplies , first aids kits , and my personal favorite, a mouse tin house .
Having written an article recently about making the most simple Friendship Bracelet , I wanted to quickly follow it up with my favorite Friendship Bracelet design . It is a design that I was not aware of way-back-when in school, when making these bracelets was so popular. The design is also surprisingly simple. I have taught the technique to a group of 8-10 year olds and they picked it up easily. I'll have you knotting in no time! Materials Needed
Today I have a fun and versatile craft for you all, we’re going to make an organizer from an old window! I made mine with some cork, chicken wire and chalkboard painted wood. It’s fairly simple to do, and the best part is that it doesn’t take long at all to make, you could craft one in an afternoon.
Tip #1: Two Tier Plate Stand This was so simple and fun to make. I was inspired by this post from Tatertots and Jello . I was incredibly impressed that this project cost her only $2!
Recently we’ve been on the hunt for a laptop sleeve. Nothing fancy, just a simple way to protect our MacBook on its journeys around town. The quickest, easiest, and cheapest solution we could come up with was to make a no-sew Maloo -esque “wrap” out of colored felt and Velcro dots. Now our little laptop is snug as a bug in a rug!
