Starfish Snowflake Ornament

Since we put up our Christmas tree early I got really inspired to make some ornaments. What I love about ornaments is you really can never have too many! The tree has plenty of room. It also is a great way to remember what your family was doing or into during a certain time period. Kids can decorate ornaments and each your you build on your collection of kids creations. I also like to make a few myself like this snowflake starfish ornament. We love by the beach and have beaches decor and I wanted to make a few ornaments to match our home. I’m not doing a whole theme for the tree because I grew up with a collective mix of ornaments and I want to continue that tradition. Next year maybe I will theme out a mini tree just for my own enjoyment! For now I let my daughter have free range of the tree. We have some Mardi Gras beads on there and random groupings of ornaments. It’s nice to have a few of my own little creations like this starfish snowflake ornament and then my daughter helped make a few others. Kids can easily help make this ornament. They could add extra colors for fun! read more

DIY Llama Pumpkin

A cute pumpkin to make with my DIY Cactus Pumpkin is this little DIY Llama Pumpkin! Llamas have been popping up all over the place. Llama decor and parties are the latest trend and let me tell you they are the cutest trend ever! I want llamas, the real ones but also some cute decorations. I don’t think my hubby would go for the llama decor in the house. For now I will stick to the cute little llama crafts. This is a fun pumpkin to make with kids but I’m not going to lie I was more into it than my daughter. She’s more of a penguin gal. However, we do love to feed the llamas at the zoo. This llama pumpkin is really simple to make. It took me less than half an hour. It is also real cheap to make I got materials from the dollar tree! For the face you can draw it like mine or look up llama pictures for inspiration. I added a flower crown but you can do it without the flowers as well. read more

DIY Cactus Pumpkin

I grew up in the desert where we have more cacti than pumpkins. I love how cactus have become trendy! They look so cute in craft form. Also as far as plants go it’s the only kind I can keep alive. We had about 10 indoor plants. Only 2 of them have survived my black thumb and one of them is a cactus. I made this cactus pumpkin from a dollar store foam pumpkin. It was incredibly easy to make and look how cute! You can also draw a little face on it. Plus nothing in this project is living so no chance of killing it. The best thing about this diy pumpkin craft is how incredibly simple it is to make. Seriously, anyone can make it and make it for a simple pumpkin craft. read more

Butterfly Leaf Craft

leaf butterflies

I have been out of blogging for far to long and I missed my creative crafty time! I’m pregnant and my craft time has been taken over by nap time. However, I got a surge of energy and now I’m back at it with some fun fall projects. My daughter and I made some cute leaf projects with Dollar Tree faux leafs. You can also use real leaves you collect, we just don’t have those as available here. In the fall here we get more butterflies than falling leaves. We live in Florida and don’t have the full four seasons. I love the idea of fall, but I don’t know if I could handle a traditional cold winter. We only get a couple tiny falling leaves, but we do have the monarch butterflies migrating through this area in October. It’s a magical experience to be surrounded by tons of butterflies! I love butterflies. The monarchs are my favorite along with blue butterflies. The great thing about this butterfly leaf craft is they wont fly away from you. You an keep them to play with over and over again. read more

Unicorn Fairy Garden

It is the season to be outside and gardening. I’ve been doing a lot of gardening lately. Ok that’s a lie I haven’t done any gardening yet but I’ve been thinking about gardening a lot lately. We have stuff to start gardening but I tend to kill plants so I’m slightly intimidated by real gardens. I will get to that but to start out I made an adorable unicorn fairy garden. What is a unicorn fairy garden you ask? It is a magical garden for unicorns to hang out in, obviously. I made it colorful, fun, and sparkly to give it a magical unicorn vibe. I’ve made a classic fairy garden but this year I wanted to make something a little more fun. This is a fun activity to make with kids.The materials to make it I got from the dollar store, amazon, and Walmart. You can get most things from the dollar store. I painted a galvanized bucket for the basket but you can just get a colorful bucket and decorate it with stickers. This is such a fun project to make with kids! read more

Bunny Napkins

The bunnies are coming out to play because it is almost Easter! Wow Easter just creeped up on me this year. I want to make all the cute things for Easter. However, this year in particular is super busy before Easter. My wedding is two weeks before Easter and that means I am really busy. I can still get it together to make some stuff because I always make time for crafts but these crafts are going to be super easy. These easy bunny napkins are about as easy as it gets. Plus, they are so adorable for Easter place settings or just casual Easter meals. I used some flower napkins that I had because spring and Easter go hand in hand. You can also use white or pastels would look really adorable as bunnies. read more
