Eraser Ring Bible Verse Valentine

Posted on Updated on

Here’s the second free printable for Valentine’s Day this year! I think they turned out so cute. And what makes it worth my time is the fact that my girls absolutely love them!
They can’t wait to be able to hand them out to their friends. So here’s the printable for the Eraser Ring Valentine I promised when I posted the pencil valentine last week.

Print the Valentines off on Cardstock. Cut them out and let your child sign their name. Cut a hole to use to tie on the ring with twine.

I had planned on making 2 holes and tying the twine on the top. But this was as far as my hole punch would reach. So I just taped the pieces to the back.

I think this worked out just as well if not better to be honest. But you can do it whichever way you like best. Now turn it over and you’re done!

Circle Cork Board

Posted on

Here’s a new project for my daughter’s room. One of these days I’ll finish all of the things I have planned for her. Then it’ll be time to start the twins room!

She has so much stuff she wants to hang on her wall that the cork board I got her from Hobby Lobby just wasn’t enough. So I came up with an idea for more! I’m not sure she could ever have too much room to hang all her drawings on.

IMG_4103Supplies needed:

Wooden Board (8×10 is what I used. I wouldn’t use a canvas since it’s not going to be as sturdy)

Circle Cork Pieces (From Michael’s)

Paint & Paint Brushes

Glue Gun & Glue Sticks

IMG_4104

Start by painting the board and the cork pieces. Make sure to get it on the sides and top. It is very porous so make sure you don’t skimp on the amount of paint you use unless you plan on more than one coat.

 Place the squares on the board and hot glue them to the board.

Now enjoy your adorable creation that perfectly matches your room! It’s really that simple! This is one of those crafts that you don’t have to be “crafty” to make it look amazing! My daughter was so excited to see this hanging in her room when she got home today!

Jewelry Holder

Posted on

Jewelry HolderI’m in the process of redoing my daughter’s room. She’s 10 now and thinks her room shouldn’t be pink anymore. So after LOTS and I’m talking LOTS of shopping and looking online for a comforter we finally found what she wanted. So this Jewelry Holder is the first thing I’ve made to decorate her room with. And I’m completely in love with it!

I saw a yellow and gray jewelry holder at Hobby Lobby but it definitely wouldn’t match. So I was on the lookout. I finally found a wooden silverware organizer at a yard sale for $.50. Talk about luck! It’s super easy and here’s how I did it.

Supplies:

Wooden Silverware Organizer

Hooks (I got these at Michaels)

Mod Podge

Scrapbook Paper

Paint & Paintbrush

Start by painting the wooden silverware organizer. I chose gray because we had planned on hanging it on a blue wall. You don’t have to worry much about the bottom since you will be putting scrapbook paper over it. But make sure to cover the front edge and all sides well. While it’s drying cut your scrapbook paper to fit inside each cubby hole.

Once its dry, it’s time to get out the mod podge.

JH 3

Using a foam brush, I applied a thin layer to the bottom and stuck the paper on it. I have a thing about the paper bubbling up, so I apply thin layers and let it dry in between. Then I applied 2 thin layers to the top of the paper.

Once that’s dry, the last step is the hooks. I found these at Michael’s 20 for $2.99 in the framing section. They had them at Hobby Lobby as well but they were more expensive. I hammered them in a little to start and then screwed them in enough to hold. Make sure not to go all the way through the wood. Mine would have screwed quite a bit farther than what was necessary. Then you’ll have a hole all the way through. Please be careful!

Now it’s ready for your jewelry. My daughter loves it! And I’m on the lookout for more of these at yard sales!

Fun Spring Yarn Wreath

Posted on Updated on

Are you ready for a fun spring wreath? I was desperately in need of a new one.

So here’s what I came up with.

 Wreath

Supplies needed:

Wreath Form

Skein of Yarn

Scrap Fabric

Ribbon (I used 1 1/2″ wide)

Chipboard Letters

Glue Gun

Glue Sticks

IMG_3586

First start by wrapping your ribbon around your wreath form. Knot the first end and put a dot of glue to help hold it. Make sure you’re watching a good show. This will take a little time. Don’t worry about making it too perfect though. I promise you will be the only one that notices it anyway! When you get to the end, put another dot of glue on the end. Just make sure it is on the same side of your wreath as the glue where you started from otherwise one of the glue dots could show.

 IMG_3618

Now take a strip of fabric and make your fabric flowers. Glue them on wherever you like. You can make as many or as few as you prefer. I made one large flower for the center and 4 smaller flowers for the sides.

IMG_3622

Now to make your banner. Cut a long string of yarn that is long enough to wrap around each side of your form and hang down in the center. Mine was about 60″. For the letters you will need six rectangles of fabric measuring 1 1/2″ by 4″. Fold your fabric over the yarn and glue. I left about 1/4″ in between each one. Make sure you start in the center of your yarn so you still have plenty to wrap on the sides to hold it on. Then I glued on some chipboard letters that I had leftover from a scrapbooking project.

I then added a ring of 1 1/2″ ribbon to hang it by and a cute bow on the top!

Now hang it on your door and you’re all set!
