It’s fall y’all! Ok it’s still hot here, but I’m ready for some fall decorations and crafts. I’ve seen adorable unicorn pumpkins for Halloween and I wanted to put a little fall spin on them. This cute fall unicorn pumpkin turned out even cuter than I had expected! I think I might need to make a unicorn for all seasons. Winter or Christmas unicorn is coming next. Thinking off the top of my head I’m thinking some kind of snow globe unicorn. Maybe a snowman unicorn. You can really incorporate unicorns into all occasions! Anyways back to the cute fall unicorn pumpkin. All of the materials are from the dollar tree. I have been having fun in that place for fall crafts. There small foam pumpkins have worked out perfect for decorating. I have two more cute pumpkin decorating ideas coming up, stay tuned! Hint one of them involves the desert and the other some kind of animal. All of my pumpkin crafts can be made with kids or just for fun adult crafts. If you are a mature unicorn kind of adult. Adulting so hard!
This craft is just the cutest fall craft for kids. My daughter actually wanted to make these and sometimes she is hard to please with crafts. She used to be really in to crafts but lately it’s hard to find crafts that compete with Roblox. Sometimes I have to get her to put down the electronics and make some old fashioned crafts! She had fun making these popsicle stick leaf dolls. Crafting is fun with a little partner. She doesn’t always love my original ideas, she has to change something to make it her own. I love her creativity, she is sooo my child. These dolls are really simple to make and your kid can put their own spin on it like my daughter did. Hers had its tongue sticking out and it’s hair down how she usually wears her hair. They both had the cute leaf skirts. You can paint on the top or draw it. You could also make a leaf top! Since crafts are just for fun let kids use their own personality and create it the way they want. I just provide the basic craft and let the kiddo let loose!
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.
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!
I’ve been putting spring and Easter together because I’m feeling the flowers this Easter. They go together like peanut butter and jelly! I also love the faux flowers headbands. I’ve made the flower crowns. The unicorn horn flower headbands are also amazing, although I have yet to try to make them. This flower bunny headband is so adorable and my daughter absolutely loved wearing it. In fact she even volunteered for me to take pictures of her with it on hopping around like a little bunny. She doesn’t like wearing her hair up but she loves headbands and holidays. This headband was the perfect fit for her and it will be going in the rotation of headbands she has.
Right now it is not feeling like spring but man am I ready for springtime! It is my favorite time of year. I love being able to get out doors more and enjoy all of the flowers. Since outside hasn’t caught on to the fact that it is spring I decided to brighten up inside with a fun Easter and Spring sign. Yup, that’s right this post is a double whammy of fun! One side of this heart sign is a spring sign and the other side is a cute bunny butt for Easter. You can switch sides and keep this decoration for longer. You could also just make one of these ideas, whichever you would like. I have to say though I really love them both. The heart sign I got around Valentine’s Day and it has been just sitting in my closet all sad and unused. Now it is getting some extra love, see what I did there, hearts and love! You can still find wood hearts at the craft store or on amazon. I found the flowers at the Dollar Tree and they look so gorgeous for such a reasonable price. Then I used pink pipe cleaners for the letter. You can also use sticker letters or paint on spring. The bunny butt is just white spray paint, a white pom pom, and pink foam paper. This part was really easy to make. Some of the flowers stuck out a bit on this side but it would be cute to use flowers around the top of this side as well to look like the bunny is digging around in the flowers. Bunnies are always up to trouble like that!
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.
I have been obsessed with mermaids lately. In fact I made my office a mermaid theme because I just love them so much! I’ve also been dying to get some mermaid fabric for a project. First I got it for a mermaid message board, which I still might make but I haven’t gotten around to that just yet. I decided to make a mermaid Easter basket and I just love how it turned out. The colors in this fabric were perfect for a mermaid lover but they make them in a bunch of different colors know. You can write letters for kids names on the front. I made it for Easter but you can really use this basket for toys or all kinds of fun goodies year round. Mermaids can be included in all of the holidays in my opinion. You know the Christmas mermaid, Thanksgiving mermaid, etc. Also with summer coming up I anticipate a ton of mermaid fun on the blog and trending soon.
Valentine’s Day has come and gone. However, Galentine’s Day and celebrating your closest friends can happen all year! I am all about women celebrating women. I decided to put together a crafts and cocktails party for my gals. Crafting and cocktails are perfect for any get together with friends. This party included lots of tasty drinks and some easy crafts. For the beverages I served Bacardi Limon with Wendy’s Signature Strawberry Lemonade.
Their Strawberry Lemonade is my favorite and it mixes well with Bacardi Limon. Seriously, you have to try it! You can only get it at Wendy’s. Since I was stopping by Wendy’s it worked out perfect to pick up beverages, Spicy Chicken Sandwiches, and fries. My gals were really excited for the drinks and snacks.
Slime is still really popular with the kiddos. I know mine loves it. I honestly have not been able to perfect the slime making and it drives me crazy! Mine is usually too runny then I add too much of something and it’s too sticky. I have some skills but apparently slime making is not one of them. I have to learn tips from the kids that have perfected their slime making. When all else fails you can buy slime to go with valentines like I did. It is fun to play with that’s for sure! I made these fun little printables to go with the slime valentines and you can get them RIGHT HERE!!
