Näin teet ekologisia joulukoristeita | Kodin Kuvalehti Hauska punatulkut saat aikaan kahdella sormivärillä painamalla. Viimeistele tussilla. Onko perheessä pieniä? Leikkaa ja liimaa erilaisista papereista joulupalloja. Washi-teippi toimii aina! Yksinkertaiset kuuset syntyvät vanhaa pesusientä hyödyntämällä. Voiko lumiukkokortti enää simppelimpi ja tyylikkäämpi ollakaan? Samalla idealla voi tehdä myös humoristisia poroja. Kuusi on aiheena klassikko ja helposti muunneltavissa. Jos haluaa panostaa, voi antaa kortin mukana pienen lahjan. Lahjapaketit syntyvät muutamasta kirjavasta paperista ja pätkästä silkkinauhaa. Mukavan rouheita kuusia saa kun katsoo ympärilleen lähimetsässä. Vanhoista sanomalehdistä tulee hauskoja, erilaisia hiutaleita.

For 2012: Make a Memory Jar Friday, January 4, 2013 This idea was so popular last year that I’m reposting it again! Happy New Year everyone! ~Jaden I always say that time goes by too fast. Of course, all the big memories are never forgotten, but it’s the little joys, the teensy things that tend to get forgotten. We keep this vintage pale blue canning jar on the kitchen counter with a stack of colorful paper and a marker. Next year, a new jar to begin again — and the best part is we can bring out past jars anytime to remember the little things that shaped our lives. A memory jar is more fun than a journal – as anyone in the family can contribute to it. Inside the jar, we also keep little silver trinkets and charms. The charms are indeed magical – and I encourage my kids to give them to a friend or stranger who could use a bit of magic. If you’d like to create a memory jar, here’s what I used: Vintage mason jar – quart size: you can find these on eBay or Etsy. From Cartelle $28: From Design Sponge: From Wit and Whistle -

Capture the Details: Easter egg craft - suncatchers! The kids and I made some pretty Easter egg decorations for our sliding glass door. They are super easy to make, too! You will need: crayons in pretty colors, a crayon sharpener (usually built in to the larger crayon boxes), wax paper, invisible thread, a small hole punch, an iron and old towels. I chose bright 'girly' colors for my eggs and so did Sarah. Ben chose darker 'boy' colors. Start by peeling the back end of a crayon and sharpening it onto a piece of wax paper that is on top of old towels (the crayon wax can seep through the wax paper). Let the shavings fall evenly. When you are happy with your shavings piles place a second sheet of wax paper over the top and another old towel over that. Let the paper cool - it won't take long - and then hold it up to the light to inspect your work! Create an egg template from heavy cardstock and trace the shape onto the wax paper. Here is my pile - Benny and I held them up to the light... Some close-ups..... Happy Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Weekend DIY: Yarn Bowl Two weeks ago, while discussing DIY ideas about our No New Gifts Christmas I mentioned a lovely yarn bowl that I wanted to make. Most of you know how much I value hand work be it just for the sake of mental health and the feeling of accomplishment. In a mostly virtual and fast-paced world, one of the most precious acts is working with your hands to create practical objects that can be touched. So, of course I didn't waste much time and dived happily at the project together with my daughter in the first moment available. Yes, this is a great project to work on with children and teenagers, and it requires a maximum of 40 minutes. The thing I like most about this project is that it is totally eco-friendly and should I even use the very fashionable word biodegradable? I made some slight changes to the original pattern, which I would like to share. 1/2 cup of flour4 cups of water3 tablespoons of sugarscrap yarn in the color of your choicebowl to use as a moldsaran wrap or plastic bag

butterflies i saw this craft after the years of different butterfly punch art and i was finally ready. i had pictures of annie painting the paper but they have disappeared. the first step is to watercolor paint on paper.paint all over with pattern or with out....less water makes for brighter colored paint.and let it dry. then punch out as many butterflies as you can. i bought this martha stewart butterfly punch at joann's.they are not cheap but it was on sale and they do have 40% off coupons quite often.and THAT punch is really cool.VERY easy to use! we used 10x10 canvases also from joann's....i wished i had bigger 20 x 20 would have been great! the girls painted them with acrylic paint. it was fine to have the streaks in the paint....i liked it. when the paint was dry they plugged in their glue guns and got to work with a pile of colorful butterflies.we bent them in the middle and put a tiny dot of hot glue in the center of the back of the butterfly. i hope that works.
