another diy christmas tree...

This is such an easy art project
with a really big visual impact!

 We used VERY inexpensive ornaments
and made sure they were shatterproof.

We had pegboard left over from
another project and decided to keep it
unpainted. However, the color 
possibilities are endless!

The ornaments fit perfectly into the 
holes. You could hot glue them if
you don't want your kids constantly 
rearranging it.

So easy!

Happy crafting!

diy christmas tree...

Oh my goodness, how much
fun is this Christmas Tree?

We purchased some outdoor carpeting
from the giant carpet rolls at Home Depot.  
It was only $3.95, and you could
make so many!

We grabbed a straight edge and a Sharpie.

Next, we drew our tree on the back.

Then we cut it out.

We used a scrap of trim for the trunk.

You could leave it plain....

or add a string of battery
powered lights.

The carpet will hold up in the elements
and the texture is perfect for a tree!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

fun clock update...

Here's a quick clock revamp.

 Take one unsuspecting clock
(this one is a $6 beauty from Target).

 Turn it over and remove the screws.

 You can now completely 
disassemble it.

 You can use any small plastic toys.
We chose these adorable sea animals.

 Start arranging and 
be sure each one will clear all 3 
of the clock hands.

Get your hot glue gun fired up!

It turned out pretty cute.
Have a great weekend friends!

plastic pumpkin repurpose...

These covered plastic pumpkins would
be perfect for gift giving or storage.

Don't you always seem to end up with multiple 
pumpkins every Halloween?
We thought it would be fun to repurpose them.

We used some fabric scraps and 
hot glued them on.

So easy!

Perfectly precious for your 
 own little pumpkins!

light it up...

These giant luminaries are so easy
to make and can be customized
to any event!

I started with cute Hazel & Ruby stencils,
Velcro and a 2x4 lighting panel from
my local home improvement store
(just venture down the lighting aisle).

Apply the Velcro to the ends.

Start decorating!  These awesome letters
can be used over and over. 
Think of all the possibilites!

You could customize them
for ANY evening event.

Place a handy LED lantern or
flashlight in the middle.

Such an easy and cool project!

mushroom garden gnome party....

How fun are these little mushrooms?!
This is such a quick and easy way
to decorate a dessert table.

Hazel & Ruby has the cutest candy
paper and re-usable stencil masks!

I made a quick trip to my neighborhood
Target and grabbed some foam cups,
bowls, mini cups and red muffin liners.

Cut out circles about an inch
bigger than the bowls.

To create your mushroom tops, apply some
 Mod Podge and stick the paper to the bowl.

Place the tops on to the 
upside down cups.

Next I cut out some triangles and
and grabbed my letters.

Spell out your phrase then
give it a quick coat of paint.

When you remove the stencils 
it creates such a cute effect!

Throw on a table cloth, sheet moss and 
Gnomes from the garden.

 Load it up with delicious treats
and get ready for the stampede!
Cute and easy...
just how we like it!

This was one of our favorite posts.
It would be perfect for a Farewell,
Homecoming, or a simple decoration.

 We started with a foam core board
from the dollar store and this
Hazel & Ruby map paper.

 Use Mod Podge to attach
the paper to the board.

 A screwdriver worked perfectly
to poke holes for the Christmas lights.

 This is what it looked like
from the back.

Such a fun and easy project!

Happy crafting!
