Happy Winter Break everyone! Is anyone else already hearing the sweet sounds of our children complaining of being bored? I know I sure am. As if they don’t have tons of toys right? Ha!

We settled on checking out some DIY Crystal Hearts as our afternoon craft. You guys, these are SO cool to make! It’s easy enough for the kids to do (almost) on their own, and it teaches them a little science, and that’s always a good thing right? And the beauty of this project is that you can make any shape you want using the same process! Let’s check out how to make these DIY Crystal Hearts shall we?  [Read more…]

Happy Holiday season everyone! Crafting and DIY projects is something I enjoy doing all year round, but around the holidays is my favorite time to craft. Whether it’s making my own gifts, homemade decorations, or a fun recipe for my holiday table, there is something about holiday crafting that is just the best! Since Halloween is over, it was time to strip my dining room table and put on my fall table cloth. Now, my table cloth is beautiful, but it needed something else to make it pop. So I decided I needed a pretty vase to put on the table. Sad thing was, the only one I had as a clear case, and that’s not very festive is it!? But fear not, I had a great idea, and I wanted to share that idea with you today. Do you have a tree in your yard? Well then you are good to go for this craft.

Now I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but I’m a pretty decent pumpkin carver. And thanks to Pumpkin Masters carving kits, it’s easy and fun!  [Read more…]

Hello my fellow Halloween lovers! Tomorrow is officially fall, who else is excited!? I am so glad that I have a kid that loves fall holidays as much as I do. Every year at my daughters school they are not allowed to dress up in full Halloween costumes, but they are allowed to dress in Halloween clothing. So I thought it would be fun to make a DIY Halloween Tutu for my daughter to wear! Something that has always amazed me is the price of tutu’s either in store or online. They can get super expensive. This project cost me $5 total, and turned out pretty cute in my oh-so-humble opinion. Would you like to learn how to make one for yourself? Let’s check it out! [Read more…]

DIY Ghost Mirror Halloween Project

You guys, Halloween is almost here! I am SO excited! I am already sneaking a few decorations up here and there. Only a few at a time so my husband doesn’t get too mad at me haha! Now while I love my Halloween decorations, what I don’t love is having to spend tons of money on them. I don’t know what it is about holiday items being so expensive, but it drives me nuts. So rather than shelling out the money at the big box stores, I find out way’s I can make Halloween decorations at home! So this week I decided to try my hand at a DIY Creepy Ghost Mirror which was inspired by something I saw in the store for $30 that I wasn’t going to spend ha! This project cost me…$2 to make. Yes really! And the cool thing about it is that you can only see the “ghost” if you are standing right in front of it. If you stand beside it it just looks like a dusty old mirror. Keep on reading if you would like to learn how to make one of your own! [Read more…]
