Owl Puppet and Monster Face Fun - November Free Printables for Kids -

Bandage Lightning Bugs Archives

I bought these bandages for my son to play doctor with but forgot I had them. While brainstorming and playing with them in my hands I realized they’d show up great on black paper! My son had no interest in doing this, he just wanted to cover himself with the bandages and ask for kisses, but I know other kids will love it. Gather your materials. You will need 2 yellow bandages for each bug and one of another color, we chose orange but any color with enough contrast will work. Tin Can Shelf Craft ZingZingTree. I always have a new love and this month it’s this adorable Tin Can Shelf Craft.

Tin Can Shelf Craft ZingZingTree

Not only do they look fantastic but they are practical and a great way to upcycle some of those tin cans we constantly throw away. Paint your tin can inside and out using either water based enamel or acrylic paint. Both dry really quickly and leave a slight shine when dry. I used enamel paint for the colour and white acrylic paint for the inside both of which only needed three layers. I did try to use white enamel paint but it was so unforgiving, needed a ridiculous amount of layers and didn’t leave an even coat.

When dry use a small tack to attach the tin can shelf to the wall. The perfect little place for putting all those cute Zelfs, Moshi’s, Trash packes etc. And small enough to leave little accents all over the house. This was part of a fab Tin Can Craft Hangout. Tagged Hangout, Storage. Rainbow Batik. I saw this wonderful project at this great site Pink and Green Mama (a favorite of mine)- as soon as I saw the project, I just had to try it out with Holly as this was right up her alley.

Giant Paper Rose Flower

She was inspired by a template created by Morgan Levine on Martha Stewart (as was I in the flowers I created for this styled shoot). I just love that this basic idea has inspired different brides to create their own version of giant paper flowers – you might remember these equally awesome giant paper flowers from this wedding I shared last year. :) Thanks so much Nata for sharing how you created your giant pink paper rose + special thanks to Studio Castillero for the photos of the DIY + her wedding!

How to... Make Blossom Fairy Lights (from Egg Cartons)! If you're new here, you may want to join us on Facebook or Google +. Thanks for visiting! Well well well, this week’s “how to” is a little early in the week (no how to on Friday) AND my kids helped me make it – egg carton blossom fairy lights!

I thought that they looked so pretty even those amongst us without children may enjoy having a go at them, hence a “how to” and not “kids craft”.. They are now proudly strung up in the entrance to our “family/ kitchen area”, so pretty much all our visitors see them, when they first come in!

Please note: Never leave Fairy Lights on unattended. {If you LOVE crafts and you want to keep up to date… I would LOVE YOU to subscribe to e-mail notifications and come and to join me on Facebook !} So.
