Hello! I’ve been super quiet on the blog lately and I apologize! I have been working on some fun things and I’m excited to share them with you over the next few weeks!
Today I wanted to share the sweet little succulents I gave as part of a Mother’s Day gift. I saw these adorable bowls on clearance at TJ Maxx and I couldn’t pass them up! Later that day I was in Walmart getting a few household items. As I passed through the lawn and garden section, these little beauties caught my eye. I’m very pleased with how this turned out!
Now to make one for my house too! Until next time…
Hello! Ever have those crafts that are so beautiful and you can’t wait to try… but the entire process is one failure after another? Well… this was that craft for me! I had been searching for exact directions and I wasn’t successful. I was determined to make this little gem so I mapped out a plan (that was awful). Once I learned a few dos and don’ts the product below was created. Ready for this? Here we go!
What you’ll need:
Pretty paper (I used blue paper)
Frosted Glass Spray Paint
Lights (I used a tea light)
Step One- Spray the jar with the frosted glass spray paint.
Step Two- Using clip art, layout the under the sea design. You’ll want to make sure you measure the jar and set the template to the same measurements. It’s also better to over estimate than underestimate! (That’s one of those lessons I learned)
Step Three- Cut out template and use Mod Podge to secure to the inside of the jar. This part gets tricky because you have to get the paper into the jar before applying the Mod Podge. I used it to mostly seal the top and bottom of the paper.
Step Four- Using glitter and glue, cover the parts of the jar that the template doesn’t cover. If I do this project again, I’m going to try to put the glitter inside the jar instead of outside.
Step Five- Drop the lights inside! I used a dimmer tea light for my project. I didn’t realize that the paper I selected was double sided and the pattern on the inside would show when the lights are on. (Another lesson learned…) The brighter the lights, the more you could see the inside pattern (pictured above!)
I hope y’all enjoyed! I’m on the fence about trying this one again! If I do I think it’ll be for my Etsy shop!
Hello! Michael’s has the best selection of fairy garden supplies and this year they have a ton of beachy fairy garden decorations. I have intentions of using some of my fairy garden supplies in one of my Scentsy warmers (I’ll feature that later!), but until then, I wanted to try something different. I made a Mermaid in a Jar! It’s very quick, easy, and looks great in my Mermaid themed bedroom!
What you’ll need:
Fairy Garden Supplies (I used a mermaid, tiny star fish, and a tiny sign)
I placed the pebbles in the bottom, added the mermaid, sign, and starfish. Then I wrapped a pearl strand around the neck of the bottle and glued into place! Pretty quick and easy. Hope y’all enjoy!
Hello! I love today’s craft! This was another Pinterest find and it was way easier than I anticipated.
What You’ll Need:
Paper (I used pretty scrapbook paper)
I printed the bunny template on a plain piece of computer paper and used that as a guide when I was cutting from the scrapbook paper. I chose sheet of scrapbook paper that complimented each other. Once all the bunnies were cut out, I laid them in order of how I wanted them to be on the banner. Every other bunny had ribbon bow ties and every other bunny had a pom pom for it’s tail. Once the embellishments were added, I put a hole in the ear and strung on twine! This is a really easy craft to make kid-friendly by using plain paper and allowing kids to decorate each bunny!
Hello! Today’s craft was a Pinterest find. It turned out pretty cute, the outline of the bunny isn’t as smooth as I would like it to be. I think I’m going to give this craft another shot, but I wanted to share before Easter! To make this, I found a bunny template and taped it to the jar. (I could have done a better job taping, I have a feeling that is why the lines are so rough.) Then I painted the jar. Once it was dry I just added the twine! I plan on filling these with jelly beans as an Easter gift! Happy crafting!
Hello! Each season I’ve been trying to update the wreathe on my front door. Wreaths aren’t exactly hard (at least not the ones that I’ve been trying!), but I’ve found getting the picks in the right place can be frustrating. I’m pretty pleased with how my spring wreath turned out! I’m in love with tulips this season! Happy Spring!!!
