Skinny Cow Thrift Store Shopping Mission

by Dinah Wulf

Woohoo!!! It’s FINALLY time to show you the result of Mission #2 and announce my next Sponsored Skinny Cow Mission #3! If you recall I announced my exciting partnership with Skinny Cow and shared my WoCavé and my sanctuary, my craft room.  My first mission was to have a fun craft day with my best friend in my WoCavé. We had a great time crafting accessories and eating our Skinny Cow cookies and dough ice cream bars. For Mission #2 my best friend and I were sent off to a thrift store shopping mission to find items for my WoCavé complete with a driver and all!!  Abdul our driver took a photo of me and Jenny in front of our car.

Before we left, we fueled up with some Skinny Cow Limited Edition Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches.  They were amazing at only 140 calories and 2 grams of fat!

Skinny Cow sent us off completely prepared with some must have thrift store shopping items:

  • A recycled tote for our purchases (I brought SEVERAL)
  • A pink measuring tape
  • An easy to carry clutch purse
  • And CASH!!!

How to Make a Bandana Skirt

by Dinah Wulf

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I can completely relate to my guest feature today, my friend Monika from Life with Lovebugs.  Both of our daughters are super girly and love to twist and twirl in skirts and dresses.  She made the most adorable skirt for her daughter made from bandanas she found for $1.00 each at Walmart.  With some help of Joann Crafts for inspiration and a brochure for how to use wide knit elastic as a waist band, she started working.

Monika used four bandanas to make her daughter’s skirt.  In four easy steps and a few supplies including four bandanas, elastic, and basic sewing supplies, she made this whimsical skirt.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

She folded each bandana to make triangle shapes all around the skirt. Using a zigzag stitch, she sewed each end down on each side.   In ten minutes and no hemming she was able to craft this very cute and simple skirt!

Thank you SO much Monika for letting me share this fun and colorful skirt that I think my daughter would love too!  I’m not great at sewing but Monika’s tutorial looks easy to follow that even I may be able to do it!

Easy Thrift Store Storage Jar Upcycle

by Dinah Wulf

thrift-store-craft-jar (1)

I had the most successful thrift store shopping trip the other day.  I will tell you all about it and share all my thrift store finds next week. Today, I wanted to share with you what I did with two items I found for less than ten dollars total. With a glass storage jar and a cute little quail knock knack I found, I made upcycled a thrift store storage jar into some craft storage.

Materials

  • Glass Jar with a lid
  • Adhesive stencils
  • Glass paint
  • Small Spouncer
  • Craft Paint
  • Ceramic bird (or something similar)
  • Oven

I found this large glass cookie jar for $5.99 at the Goodwill with a wooden lid.

thrift-store-craft-jar (3)

I also found this cute little quail bird for $2.99 and couldn’t resist buying it.

thrift-store-craft-jar (9)

I started off by centering the adhesive stencils to spell “Craft Junkie”.

thrift-store-craft-jar (4)

Using a small spouncer brush, I painted on the stencil.

thrift-store-craft-jar (5)

Here’s what it looked like when I was done.

thrift-store-craft-jar (6)

You can peel off the stencil immediately.

thrift-store-craft-jar (7)

Allow it to dry for one hour.

thrift-store-craft-jar (8)

Meanwhile I painted my lid and bird. To easily paint the bird, I put a pencil in the center and placed it in a jar to dry.

thrift-store-craft-jar (10)

Once the paint was dry, I used strong industrial strength glue.

thrift-store-craft-jar (11)

thrift-store-craft-jar (12)

Once the paint is on the jar dries for one hour, place the jar in a cool oven.

thrift-store-craft-jar (13)

Turn the oven to 350 and leave it in there for 30 minutes. If you do not want to place the jar in the oven, you can also allow the paint to cure for about 22 days.

12 Easy Paper Flower Crafts

by Dinah Wulf

Paper flower crafts are fun and easy to do.  Over the past couple years I’ve noticed that I’ve done quite a few of them. I decided that I had to stop at a dozen! I tried to pull from old posts from when I first started blogging. It’s amazing how much I feel like I have grown through this creative blogging journey.

Here are a few ideas for crafts, gifts, or party ideas.  All the links have full step-by-step photo tutorials.

Easy Paper Flower Crafts

I used many of the following projects for gift embellishments and home décor. All of these are made from recycled materials like book pages, coin wrappers, and coffee filters.

Easy Coffee Filter Flowers

Water Colored Book Page Roses

Recycled Phone Book Origami Paper Flower

Recycled Coin Wrapper Paper Flower

Book Page Paper Flower Magnet

 

Paper Flowers for Gifts

These crafts and gift ideas are fun to do with the kids.  Make a back to school gift for a teacher or an easy paper flower ornament made out of a toilet paper roll.

Coffee Filter Flower Gift Wrapping

Toilet Paper Roll Flower Ornament

 

Paper Flowers for Parties

These crafts are great for party decorations because they are fun, inexpensive, and easy to do.  The standard accordion flower tutorial can be used as paper flowers or medallions to fit any party theme.  Just change the patterns and colors of paper to fit your theme.

DIY Fabric Flower Barrette

by Dinah Wulf

flower-head-piece (5) (560x392)

I believe I started a new craft addiction. Um yeah… that would be hair accessories.  They are so easy to make and take minutes.  I think I decided that I liked them once I started getting compliments when I wore them out.  So, today I decided to share another DIY fabric flower barrette.

It all started off on the fourth of July when I made that last minute flower in red, white, and blue to wear with my headband.  THEN, I decided to disclose to the world that my head was shaved and these headpieces were absolutely necessary to cover my awkward hair do. Anyway, here’s a fun and easy piece to either keep or give away as a handmade gift.

Materials:

  • Fabric flowers
  • Buttons
  • Scissors
  • Felt
  • Hot glue and hot glue gun
  • Hair clip or barrette

Instructions:

First play around with your arrangement.  Keep the size of the barrette in mind to make sure you don’t make your flower cluster too big or too small.  Hot glue the pieces into place.

flower-head-piece (1) (560x372)

The glue will dry in seconds.  Next, cut and trim the felt as shown.

flower-head-piece (2) (560x372)

Finally, hot glue the barrette onto the center of the hair clip in the desired position.

flower-head-piece (3) (560x372)

Here are the two that I made.  I like to clip them onto different head bands, or you can also wear them by themselves. 

flower-head-piece (4) (560x372)

Here is another AFTER photo.

You can package them up in a cute box with ribbon to make a sweet personalized gift. Consider adding pearls or rhinestones for some added BLING!

wine-cork-wine-charm-tutorial (10)

I am so honored to have Robert Mondavi Private Selection sponsor this DIY summer craft tutorial! Today I want to share with you how to make DIY Recycled Wine Cork Wine Charms.  These would make great homemade party favors for your next summer party.

wine-cork-wine-charm-tutorial (2)

Materials:

  • Robert Mondavi Private Selection wine corks (One cork will make six charms)
  • Serrated knife
  • Cutting board
  • Small sea shells
  • E6000
  • Small picture frame eye hook (one for each charm)
  • Hoop earring notion
  • Beads or charms (optional)
  • Small pliers

Favor Packaging (optional):

  • Plastic favor bags
  • Decorative paper
  • Small hole punch
  • Burlap ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Stapler

Instructions:

Using a serrated knife cut the wine cork into six even pieces. This is very easy to do by applying a little pressure.  Make sure you use a cutting board.

wine-cork-wine-charm-tutorial (4)

Choose one shells for each of your charms.  Make sure they are all different.

wine-cork-wine-charm-tutorial (5)

Use a strong glue to glue the shells onto the center of the cork.  I used E6000 but hot glue will adhere well also.

wine-cork-wine-charm-tutorial (1)

Screw in a small picture frame eye hook to the top of each charm. 

wine-cork-wine-charm-tutorial (7)

wine-cork-wine-charm-tutorial (8)

If you desire, add an extra charm or bead with the help of small pliers.

wine-cork-wine-charm-tutorial (6)

Add the hoop earring notion.  Here is an AFTER photo.

wine-cork-wine-charm-tutorial (9)

If you’d like to make them as a homemade gift or party favor, you can get creative with your packaging.  I decided to use clear plastic favor bags.  I used a small craft punch to punch holes into decorative cardstock so that the charm will easily slide through.  Six charms fit nicely onto a 3X4 piece of cardstock. Here are a couple photos.

Six Easy Crafts You Can Do in 15 Minutes or Less

by Dinah Wulf

I recently participated in a fantastic Craft Lightening 15 minutes craft challenge and it made me think of all the easy crafts I have recently completed in 15 minutes or less.  I wanted to put together a round-up of some recent favorites SOOOOOO, here are six easy crafts you can do in less than 15 minutes! All these make great personalized gifts for friends and family.

Etched Glass Containers

Glass etching is addicting!  It’s so simple and versatile.  I chose to etch some laundry detergent glass containers in an attempt to make my laundry area prettier, but you can do this project with almost any type of glass. Consider jars, vases, wine glasses, plates, mugs, and other household items.

Heat Transfer Tote Bag

This craft was also fun and easy to do.  With my obsession with recycled bags (you should see the trunk of my car), I decided to make one for my daughter.  Heat transfer works great on canvas, but you can use other types of fabrics to personalize shirts and other clothing, pillows, throws and more!

Personalized Mugs

You thought I had an obsession with recycled bags? Well, I also have an obsession with coffee!! I loved making these fun Mr. and Mrs. Coffee mugs.  These would be a cute wedding or shower gift.

Upcycled Bottle Vase

What is it with my vices today? Hello, my name is Dinah and I am a hoarder. I couldn’t throw away this pretty tequila bottle so I just HAD to turn it into a vase.  15 minutes? More like three…

Nautical Inspired Rope Vase

I made these on my first Craft Lightening challenge that I participated in.  Now, these little pretties are sitting in my bathroom, giving it a tropical relaxing feel. 

Easy Thrift Store Pedestal Bowl

I scored with finding these two items at Goodwill for practically nothing! Now, this little bowl is so useful that I keep it on my bedside table to hold my jewelry.

DIY Craft Storage Jars 15 Minute Craft

by Dinah Wulf

15-minute-craft-storage-diy (1)

Woo hoo!!! I get to participate in another Craft Lightening today with Country Chic Cottage and 30 Minute Crafts! Last time I did a tutorial for how to make a rope vase and this time I’m sharing how to upcycle craft storage jars in fifteen minutes or less!

Materials:

  • Any jar(s) with a lid
  • Drawer knobs
  • E6000
  • Paint (optional)

Instructions:

I was looking for craft storage jars ever since I started making this flower cluster headpiece and this red, white, and blue headpiece because all my craft supplies were building up!  I purchased these three multi-purpose jars from the 99 cent store. 

15-minute-craft-storage-diy (2)

I had these wooden knobs left over from an old dresser I upcycled.  I used some for a little kitchen play hutch I made and had exactly three left for this project.

15-minute-craft-storage-diy (3)

I decided to paint them, blue of course!

15-minute-craft-storage-diy (4)

Tip: I left the screws in to make it easier to paint.

Next, with a little E6000, I glued the knobs to the lid after the paint dried. An industrial strength glue is great because you will be able to pull or twist the lid without worrying that the knob will fall off (take my word on this one).

15-minute-craft-storage-diy (5)

That’s it!  SUPER easy upcycled craft storage jars in less than 15 minutes! 

15-minute-craft-storage-diy (1)

You can use these cute little buggers for things other than craft storage of course!  Consider using them for spices in your kitchen, office supplies, or bathroom necessities.  You can also use different types of knobs, depending on your décor.

Easy Felt Flower Tutorial

by Dinah Wulf

easy-felt-flower-tutorial (8)

I have been brainstorming some ideas for a baby shower that I am helping with.  The Mommy-to-be requested a vintage inspired shower with lots of lace and burlap.  She is not giving away the gender, so she wants neutral colors or both blue and pink and other pastels. I decided to try and make a felt flower.  I have sewn similar fabric flowers before and working with felt was actually easier because it is sturdy. 

Here are the materials I used for one flower:

  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Pearl Bead

easy-felt-flower-tutorial (1)

Instructions:

Each flower takes six felt petals.  Here is how I cut mine. In hindsight I would have cut smaller pieces.

easy-felt-flower-tutorial (2)

You can play around with the size and shape of each petal.  With a good pair of scissors, you can easily cut 3-4 petals at a time. Keep in mind that each flower will be 5-6 times larger than one petal.

easy-felt-flower-tutorial (3)

Thread your needle and sew each petal together as shown.

easy-felt-flower-tutorial (4)

easy-felt-flower-tutorial (5)

easy-felt-flower-tutorial (6)

easy-felt-flower-tutorial (7)

Lastly, sew on the pearl.

easy-felt-flower-tutorial (8)

I think I may make smaller ones in blue, pink, yellow, and green and embellish some mason jars with them with burlap and lace for flower vases. I think it will be cute to mix in rattles, white baby shoes, and vintage books.

You can also use these to make hair accessories like this one and this one or use them to embellish gifts or cards.  Use them for home décor and sew a cluster of them on accent pillows or throw blankets.

Wocave Mission #1: Girl’s Craft Night Out

by Dinah Wulf

craft-night

I am once again ELATED by my sponsors at Skinny Cow! You may recall my introduction to my craft room sanctuary also known as my WoCavé. So far, it has been shared over 600 times thanks to YOU! Today I am sharing my first WoCavé Mission, a girl’s craft night out!

OK, I have to be honest.  Now that I’m a Mom and many of my besties are also Moms, scheduling a girl’s night out is a little tough these days.  For me, however, craft time with my best friend and no kids is JUST as good… day or night. Am I right?  With the help of Skinny Cow, my best friend Jen and I raided Michael’s for our beloved craft time together and bought some supplies.

craft-night -notions

craft-night-supplies

Our husbands were kind enough to take the kids for a few hours and Jen and I had some amazing girl bonding time in my WoCavé.  We crafted these awesome accessories including some rings, earrings, and barrettes.

We got to chat and craft uninterrupted by our little ones and eat some Skinny Cow Cookies and Dough ice cream bars. Isn’t Jen cute? I heart her!

Now, for my next Skinny Cow WoCavé Mission #2… here are a few hints…

  • “What’s your lowest price?”
  • A pink measuring tape and a recycled tote is a MUST

Quick and Easy Flower Headpiece

by Dinah Wulf

I wasn’t going to do a post today because of the holiday weekend…BUT I COULDN’T DO IT!  This blog is an addiction, I tell ya!  If you haven’t guessed, I am an extremely calculated person.  I HATE to procrastinate and I almost feel a strong anxiety when I do not plan ahead.  This includes this blog.  I have my posts and projects completed very early. My secret is out.  Every post is published exactly at 6am PST Monday to Friday.  It has been that was since this blog started in April 2011.  Sometimes, I’ll admit, I have projects ready months in advance.  I know I’m crazy.  Today, IS THE VERY FIRST BLOG POST out of over 500 that I did not plan.  Eeeek! With that said I found myself scrambling right before a party yesterday and decided to make this quick and easy headpiece.

quick-and-easy-headpiece (1)

Materials I used:

  • Flower
  • Clip
  • Pre-made felt flower
  • Felt
  • Tulle
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue & glue gun

Literally minutes before we left I threw this baby together.  Thank goodness hot glue dries so quickly.  I cut out scraps for blue leaves and a small sliver of tulle. 

Here’s how it turned out!

quick-and-easy-headpiece (2)

This is me posting it on Instagram! Yes. I am in my garage and yes…that is a lot of gray hair.

Soooo, now that I am actually nearing the end of this spur of the moment blog post, I can take a deep breath….Ahhhhhhhhh.  Hey! That wasn’t so bad!  I really need to do this more often!

How to Make Your Own Personalized Mugs

by Dinah Wulf

how-to-make-a-personalized-mug (560x372)

I have been on a thrift store roll lately!  I found these cute coffee mugs for fifty cents each at the Goodwill. I’ve always wanted to try making my own personalized mugs so I thought I’d give it a go.  It was actually quite easy.  The craft itself takes minutes, however the curing time is what takes the longest.  These personalized mugs make great gifts.  You can fill them up with candy as a fun hostess gift or teacher gift.  Here is how to make your own personalized mugs.

Materials:

  • Coffee Mugs
  • Glass paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Adhesive Stencils
  • Oven (optional)

Note: If you would like to cure your mug in the oven, make sure that the coffee mug you choose is oven safe.

Instructions:

Make sure your mugs are clean and dry.  Wipe them down with rubbing alcohol.

DIY personalized mugs (1) (560x372)

Place your adhesive stencil in the desired area.

DIY personalized mugs (2) (560x372)

I used Martha Stewart gloss opaque glass paint and applied it with a paint brush.

DIY personalized mugs (3) (560x372)

You can peel off the adhesive stencils immediately after you are finished painting. 

DIY personalized mugs (4) (560x372)

There are two ways to cure the paint.  First you can let is cure naturally for 21 days, or if your mugs are oven safe, you can place them in the oven to cure.  Let the paint dry for one hour and then set them in a cool oven. Set the temperature to 350 degrees and allow it to preheat.  Leave them in the oven for one hour.

Heat Transfer Recycled Tote Bag

by Dinah Wulf

heat-transfer-recycle-bag-project (7) (560x377)

I am so excited to have started a partnership with Silhouette America.  I wanted to share a project I did using the heat transfer starter kit that they have available.  Since I have this weird obsession with using recycled bags (I haven’t gotten a plastic bag from a store in almost three years), I thought I’d upcycle an old bag and make a heat transfer recycled tote bag for my daughter.

Materials:

Step One:

Create your design using your Silhouette software program.  Make sure you mirror your image when you design it, otherwise your image will apply backwards.

Step Two:

Print out your design on your heat transfer material and peel away the negative space.

heat-transfer-recycle-bag-project (3) (560x372)

Step Three:

Position your design on your tote bag and place a scrap piece of fabric over the design.  BTW, I used a piece of scrap fabric from the upcycled headboard I made.

heat-transfer-recycle-bag-project (4) (560x354)

Step Four:

Iron your image onto the tote bag by pressing firmly and placing pressure on the design for 45-60 seconds.

heat-transfer-recycle-bag-project (5) (560x389)

Step Five:

Gently remove the transfer sheet and place the fabric scrap over the design again.  Iron it for 45-60 to allow the design to set.

heat-transfer-recycle-bag-project (6) (560x376)

There you have it… a personalized recycled tote bag!

A HUGE THANK YOU to Silhouette America for sponsoring this post! Opinions are all mine!
