How to Fold Napkin Flowers

| DIY, flowers, Spring

Flower Napkins

It is really starting to feel like spring. That means it is time to get outdoors. Outdoor crafting and party time call for lots of flowers. I made these simple napkin flowers. I am going to show you how to make napkin flowers with a few easy steps. These are just paper napkins. A while ago I found these marble napkins and have been waiting to find a use for them. They look so pretty as flowers. The napkin flowers would also look great with a solid color. You can use them at each place setting out even put some in a vase for a decoration and guests to grab. I’m sure there are fancier napkin flowers and more complicated ways to make them but I went for as simple as possible.

Plastic Tablecloth Floating Flowers

| Uncategorized

I’m going to get real with you about this post. I wanted to come up with ideas with things I had in my craft supplies. I’ve been cleaning things out because we just moved. Some stuff I wanted to keep in case I had some use for them in the future. I hate to waste anything and because of that I have hoarded random craft supplies. I had one pink plastic table cloth that has no purpose. A while ago I saw on Pinterest someone had use plastic table cloths to make floating flowers in the pool. I have no idea wear that post was from but I wanted to create my own floating pool flowers. These aren’t the prettiest flowers ever but with a bunch of them I think they would look so pretty in the pool for a party! Also just for an outdoor party. These plastic tablecloth floating flowers are a simple diy decoration that no one will expect. I made 3 of them with one table cloth. These table cloths I got in a pack of two from the dollar store. If you had 5 packs of them you could make 30 flowers! I can tell you how to make them even prettier than my attempt.

Floral hoop wreath

It’s already starting to feel like spring here in Phoenix! It is really the best time of year to be outside here. The nice weather made me want to do some outside crafting and make flower crafts. I don’t usually make wreaths but I think I’m going to start making some for every season. This hoop wreath is easy to make and could be fun for indoors to hang on a door or just up on a wall. I just love the things you can make with paper and anyone with any crafting skill level could make this paper flower hoop wreath. As soon as it’s nice out I encourage you to do some outdoor crafting it’s refreshing and nice to get outside. Now I want to have an outdoors girls craft day!

I am sitting here surrounded by boxes getting ready to move. Moving is an exciting and stressful time. I am not an organized person by nature. Since I love crafting I tend to collect things over time and hoard a bit. You never know when you will need some extra toilet paper rolls. It is the time for me to clear all of that out. Soon we will be moving and then comes the celebrations! Instead of really focusing on the moving part I am all ready to plan a party once we are all moved! I made up these cute little housewarming party printables. You will definitely need some fun decorations at your housewarming party and these printables are an easy way to make your house cute and decorated for a housewarming party.

Housewarming Gifts for Kids and Adults

| Gift bags

Continuing with my housewarming fun! First I made little house gift boxes to hand out at housewarming parties or to give to someone who has just moved into a new home. Today I have these cute little gift tags that look like Welcome mats. Ones that say welcome to your new home and to keep you warm in your new home. Kids and adults both need new things for their home. We are in the process of moving across the country and I want to get a little gift for my daughter to get her excited about the move. Usually adults get presents when they get a new home. I think it is a cute idea to get parent’s and kids matching gifts when they move.

Lucky Charms Edible Charm Bracelets

| Crafts, St. Patrick's Day

Edible Charm Bracelet with Lucky Charms

Lucky Charms are magically delicious and magically cute! I love this tasty cereal. I decided to use it for a fun little craft too. My daughter and I made little Lucky Charms edible charm bracelets. She loved it. You can eat and craft at the same time. She loves crafts and lately she loves jewelry. In the morning when she gets ready she says it takes a while to get her style. She has to figure out what bracelets and necklaces work with her style for the day. It’s cute that she has a better style than I do. I rarely accessorize, most days it’s yoga pants for me and not a lot of jewelry goes with yoga pants. I do love the girly things and jewelry too. Every once in a while it is nice to take off the mom uniform(yoga pants), get dressed up, and add some jewelry. In the mean time I will settle for edible bracelet crafting!
