Four Easy Halloween Party Crafts

Glittered Skulls

If you couldn’t tell, my favorite holiday is Halloween.  I love everything about it; the decorations, the costumes, the weather, taking the kids trick-or-treating, and of course, the parties.  I’ve recently been able to participate in taking the kids trick-or-treating last year since my daughter is only two.  It’s a big production.  We meet at […]

Burlap Scrap Wreath

OK, I’m calling this a Burlap Scrap Wreath because not only is it made out of burlap scraps; this wreath is also made out of craft scraps.  It is made out of plumbing insulation, burlap left over from my burlap stenciled placemats, frames from my daughter’s butterfly themed birthday party, tulle from my daughters Alice […]

This year for Halloween my family is going to be the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts, and Alice from Alice in Wonderland.  As you know I preach recycled crafting and I made a DIY Mad Hatter Top Hat out of a cardboard box and hanger (among other things), but this time I decided to […]

School’s here!  I know my little one isn’t quite ready just yet, but she does love drawing and coloring.  I don’t think a day passes that she doesn’t (she must take after her Mama).  I have a trip coming up to visit my parents back home in Maryland and I have a long(ish) plane flight […]

DIY Recycled Jar Tea Light

DIY Recycled Jar Tea Light (1)

I’m pretty sure I save every single jar after it’s empty.  Pickle, spaghetti sauce, salsa… I don’t discriminate.  The Mason jar is beautiful but I think it gets too much credit (don’t get me wrong, I’ve done several Mason jar crafts in the past and I still LOVE them).  For this DIY Recycled Jar Tea […]

The foyer or entryway to a home is usually the first impression your guests have when they come over.  It’s often an inexpensive and budget-friendly area to remodel, since it is typically a small area.  You may consider installing a durable wood or slate floor as a DIY idea to freshen this high traffic area.  You […]

Junk Drawer Crafts

Recycled Junk Drawer Crafts

I made these simple junk drawer crafts for a fundraiser coming up.  I call them “junk drawer crafts” because they are recycled crafts literally made out of items I found in my horrendous kitchen and completely unorganized kitchen drawer (I was totally inspired to do this because I’m watching Craft Wars…awesome show!). I decided to […]

From Martha Stewart to Glamour magazine I’ve seen the neon color trend utilized on everything including party themes to head-to-toe fashions.  Although I personally wouldn’t be caught dead wearing a neon dress (it would attract WAY too much attention […]
