Pumpkin Round Up

Standard

Long time no blog!

I wanted to post a fall/Halloween round up and decided today’s would be focused on pumpkins since I recently read about this contest on A Beautiful Mess.

Here are some pumpkin projects I had on my Pinterest.

Flower pumpkins. I imagine you could also hot glue fake flowers onto fake pumpkins.

Cute kitty pumpkins. You could do these with fake pumpkins too.

I didn’t find this pretty pumpkin on the tumblr it’s linked to 😦
 
Here’s another sparkly pumpkin. Looks like it’s originally from
Better Homes and Gardens (which has some other pumpkin ideas too!), but check out The Crafted Sparrow for another pumpkin roundup.
 
Do you have any great ideas for decorating pumpkins? Be sure to leave them in the comments!

Father’s Day Round-Up

Standard

Here are some cute Father’s Day gifts from around the internet! 🙂

Here‘s a cute gift found via CraftGossip.

This is a cute idea! Would also be cute if you have 3 kids. Or if you have more kids, just put more than one kid per letter (or spell father, or…I’m sure you can figure something out :)) You could also alter this for other occasions/words. Found via Pinterest.

I can’t seem to find the original post for this cute idea that I found on Pinterest, but it looks like the remote’s actually a cookie! I thought it was adorable even when I thought it was the regular remote with a tag. 🙂

 

This precious car wash kit idea and 10 others (including the pictures above that spell “DAD”) can be found here.

And finally, here‘s a pencil holder from CraftBits. I wonder if you could use a toilet paper with something on the bottom…

Enjoy and have a happy Father’s Day! If you have any Father’s Day craft ideas, be sure to leave them in the comments!

World Wednesday: Mother’s Day

Standard

Here’s an article from Wikipedia about the history of Mother’s Day and it’s celebration(s) around the world. I’m not sure how accurate it is (most sources should be researched anyway 🙂 ) but its’s still pretty interesting.
Happy Week of Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day Round Up

Standard

5 links to quite a few DIY-able Mother’s Day gifts….

1. 5 Kid-Friendly (& cute!) Crafts can be found on Come Together Kids.

2. A cute card idea (& great way to use up little fabric scraps) is on A Beautiful Mess.

3. Another cool-looking card can be found through Craft Gossip.

4. You could make a coffee cozy from or inspired by one of the many tutorials on Tipnut.

5. A useful gift could be some homemade laundry detergent. You can get some instructions from TLC. (Although I’ve made some from shredded Zote and hot water — maybe some borax too, but I don’t think so — and it seems to work fine without all the extra steps and products. But as usual, do this at your own risk.)

Do you have any Mother’s Day gift ideas?

Enjoy.

Easter Round Up

Standard

Some Easter ideas found via Pinterest

all crafts Peeps: 12 Marshmallow Peep Recipes & Decor!

There are soooo many cute ideas here!

Here are some ideas of alternative Easter egg fillers. There’s an idea to put seeds in Easter eggs. Wouldn’t it be cool to plant (or at least start) them in the Easter egg?

This cute little thing would be cute made from an unpainted gray egg carton too!

Are these candle holders adorbs? Yes, I just used adorbs 🙂 These could be cute to do after Easter with the plastic eggs used that year. You could maybe collage over them and/or cover them with fabric. I bet ModPodge would work.

Directions for growing grass for your Easter basket(s). This is probably a lot safer if you have pets or kids that like to eat thing. (almost definitely, but I don’t recommend eating it. If you or anyone you know eats it and gets sick/injured/whatever, it’s not my fault….) You can also just dump it in the yard after Easter. I’d say it’s more eco-friendly than plastic Easter grass too! 🙂

This cute egg doesn’t seem like it’s as hard to make as it looks.

eggs to crack

I like the decoration on these. Cute!

I accidentally found these after I logged out of Pinterest. Adorable, right?

Have a fabulous Easter! Let me know if you try any of these. Or any other cool Easter ideas you have!
