A cute pumpkin to make with my DIY Cactus Pumpkin is this little DIY Llama Pumpkin! Llamas have been popping up all over the place. Llama decor and parties are the latest trend and let me tell you they are the cutest trend ever! I want llamas, the real ones but also some cute decorations. I don’t think my hubby would go for the llama decor in the house. For now I will stick to the cute little llama crafts. This is a fun pumpkin to make with kids but I’m not going to lie I was more into it than my daughter. She’s more of a penguin gal. However, we do love to feed the llamas at the zoo. This llama pumpkin is really simple to make. It took me less than half an hour. It is also real cheap to make I got materials from the dollar tree! For the face you can draw it like mine or look up llama pictures for inspiration. I added a flower crown but you can do it without the flowers as well.
I grew up in the desert where we have more cacti than pumpkins. I love how cactus have become trendy! They look so cute in craft form. Also as far as plants go it’s the only kind I can keep alive. We had about 10 indoor plants. Only 2 of them have survived my black thumb and one of them is a cactus. I made this cactus pumpkin from a dollar store foam pumpkin. It was incredibly easy to make and look how cute! You can also draw a little face on it. Plus nothing in this project is living so no chance of killing it. The best thing about this diy pumpkin craft is how incredibly simple it is to make. Seriously, anyone can make it and make it for a simple pumpkin craft.
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!
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.
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.
Valentine’s Day is all about showing love and well chocolate. It’s mostly about the chocolate am I right?! What better way to show love than with chocolate? Make these fun little candy confetti poppers for friends on Valentine’s Day. It’s a simple little gift to give with a little surprise inside. Candy and confetti, what’s not to love? I used fun heart card stock paper for the wrapping. These would be cute little gifts or favors for a large group of people. I made a bunch of them in minutes.
It is week 2 of the craft room challenge and I have been busy cleaning off the surfaces of my desk and my daughters desk. We share this room and both have messes to clean up. I had piles of paper to tackle as well as craft supplies. My Christmas stuff was just sitting on my desk in a box with no where to go. The funny thing is we were actually out of town for Christmas so I didn’t even go all out I just made smaller projects that added up to a large mess. My daughters school papers from the fall were out of control and I’m still trying to figure out a system for these. Then I had some bridal shower stuff adding to the mess. You can see the before of my surfaces from week 1. It wasn’t unbearable but if I kept adding to it things would have become a craftnado real fast.
It is the beginning of the year and you know what that means, time to get organized! Ok I never actually say it is time to get organized. Typically I have accepted that I am an unorganized mess and that I will always exist in a pile of stuff. However, in the past I have been in apartments and working with small amounts of space. Now I have my own office/craft room and I want to make it look nice. It is kind of in the middle of an identity crisis. Is it a guest room, craft room, office, place for my daughter to work on school work, or place for me to just pile up random stuff that doesn’t have a place yet. So far the random piles have won out over anything functional. I end up taking my computer into the kitchen because that room feels too chaotic to work in. Well that is about to change thanks to a little kick in the butt from the crafty ladies of the Craft Cult organizing the Craft Room Challenge 2018. We want you all to follow along with us and organize your own space as well! We are tackling one area at a time to make it smooth sailing and not crazy overwhelming. If I can do it you can all do it too! The best part is there are so many ladies organizing their mess of a craft room. Everyone has different supplies to organize, levels of mess, and areas of crafting that they specialize in. You can find your crafty spirit animal in this group that has the same messy issues that you do.
