Sweet Succulents 

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…

Mermaid Luminary Jar

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:

  • Jar
  • Pretty paper (I used blue paper)
  • Clip art
  • Mod Podge
  • Scissors
  • Glitter
  • 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!

Milk Jar Craft

Hello! I’ve been looking for fun, easy, and inexpensive ways to add touches of Spring to my home!  Here’s a quick little craft that I came up with using craft supplies I had laying around!

What you’ll need:

  • Milk Jar (could use mason jar as well)
  • Twine
  • Hot glue
  • Key
  • Paint
  • Painting Supplies

Start by painting the jar, I used a Martha Stewart satin finish paint and it took about three coats.  Wrap twine around opening of the bottle and secure with hot glue.  Attach key to twine and wrap around the neck of the bottle.  Add flowers!

Super quick craft and adds to perfect touch of Spring to any room!  I found my flower bouquet at Michael’s, I love the burlap flowers!  I hope y’all enjoyed! Happy Crafting!

Dream Catcher 

Hello!  I had a request from my niece to make a dream catcher and I had to share the results.  It took a few tries to get the swing of things (and it wasn’t exactly easy with a cat playing and tugging at the ribbons as they were being woven), but it turned out beautifully!

If you’re interested in a customized dream catcher of your own, please contact me through my Etsy Shop and I would be happy to create one for you too!

Tea Light Holders

Hello! Sorry I’ve been a little quiet on the blog the last few weeks with my crafting!  I’ve been working on a few things and I’m excited to share them!  Today I’m featuring tea light holders!  I don’t use candles for safety reasons, however, I love the flame-less tea lights that you can find just about anywhere these days!

What you’ll need:

  • Glass Tea Light Holder
  • Glass Pebbles
  • Seashells
  • Twine
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Tea Light Candles or Flame-less Tea Lights

Using the hot glue gun, glue the glass pebbles and seashells in place.  I used twine to create a bow and secured using hot glue as well.  I also placed loose glass pebbles inside the holders and placed the flame-less tea lights on top!

It’s a really quick and easy craft!  Perfect for adding a small touch to a table or shelf, and it comes in handy during power outages!  Hope y’all enjoyed! Happy crafting!!!
