I’m hoping that if I continue making spring crafts, spring will actually arrive! Here, its currently snowing outside, but inside I’m having one hell of a spring garden party. I made these adorable flower pot placeholders using supplies I picked up at Dollar Tree. They’re perfect if you are hosting a spring gathering. Your guests can take them home and later plant the attached seeds! Ok, heres what I picked up at Dollar Tree in…Continue reading Dollar Store Garden Party Placeholders
Although Mother Nature isn’t, I am so ready for warmer temperatures. Its been cold and gray here lately. To brighten my mood and perhaps give a nudge to spring, I decided to create this lovely butterfly wreath. I picked up the majority of my supplies at Dollar Tree. I grabbed a 10in. foam wreath, 12 packs of butterfly decorations and a bag of bright green moss while in store. The butterflies come in a variety…Continue reading Dollar Store Butterfly Wreath
For this weeks project, I initially was going to make an Easter egg out of ping pong balls similar to the Candy Corn Pingpong Ball Art I made this past Halloween. Then, I begin thinking about creating something that would be fun for Easter, but could stick around all year. This simplistic, yet bold sign with its cheeky saying is perfect displayed here amongst my Peeps Inspired Bunny Decorations. Once Easter is over, it’ll look great hanging in…Continue reading Eggscuse Me Sign
I love making new eggs for my Easter tree. This year, I decided that I wanted to go a little untraditional and use black and white paints for my eggs. I think they look great with my Fluorescent Mason Twine Wrapped and Sparkly Decoupaged Easter Eggs. Variety is the spice of life! I achieved the wonderful marbleized effect using Martha Stewart Marbling Medium and Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paints in Bettle Black and Wedding Cake. I’ve been wanting to use this marbling medium again…Continue reading Marbleized Easter Eggs
The weather here has been very rainy lately. Since, I wasn’t able to plant flowers in these once boring terra cotta pots last week, I painted them instead. Maybe the rain was a blessing in disguise because these pots were definitely in need of a makeover! Thankfully my friends over at Plaid had provided me with their new FolkArt Coastal paint line a few weeks back. These texture paints were perfect for this project. I used three…Continue reading Terra Cotta Pot Makeover
I’m so happy Spring is here and I can turn my attention outdoors again. I’m ready to plant flowers and spruce up the backyard with art. I have a few outdoor craft projects up my sleeve that I can’t wait to share. This terra cotta pot wind chime is my first creation. It’s so bright and cheery and makes a lovely sound when the wind blows. Disclosure: Project materials and this post are sponsored by Plaid. Project…Continue reading Terra Cotta Pot Wind Chime
I’m hosting an Easter gathering at my place this year. So, the decorating rolls on. Once again, I was feeling inspired by Peeps brand bunnies and decided to make these giant Peeps bunnies to decorate my mantel. First, I drew a Peeps inspired bunny template onto some paper that was roughly the size of the styrofoam piece I would be making them out of. Next, I cut out and traced around the bunny template onto…Continue reading Peeps Inspired Bunny Decoration
I added an Easter design inspired by Peeps brand candies to store bought white pillar candles using my hair dryer! Yes, a hair dryer. Learn how I did it in the video below. Also, I didn’t mention it in the video, but you’ll want to cut out around your design once drawn onto the tissue paper before adhering to the candle. Ok, just watch, you’ll see what I mean! Happy Easter, friends!
Happy April Fools’ Day! I wanted to share this harmless prank that is sure to bring a few chuckles to the entire family. I certainly am having a good laugh every time I open up my refrigerator! All you need to complete this gag is googly eyes and a hot glue gun! I picked up all my googly eyes from the dollar store. Isn’t it Eggcellent?!?!?!?
I love decorating Easter eggs. When I was younger, my mom and I would decorate them using the “paper towel trick“. A few years back, my friend Mintie and I made twine wrapped eggs. In this video, I’m showing you how to make sparkly decoupaged Easter eggs using plastic eggs and paper napkins. Check it out!
