DIY Monster Lights

| DIY, Halloween

I’m getting in to the Halloween spirit now that it is finally October. Although, it still feels like summer here it’s time for Halloween crafts, spooky fun, and of course Halloween candy! This week is all about monsters. I’m going more for the cute and cuddly kind of monsters not scary monsters. Honestly I don’t know how to make scary crafts I only do the bright color cute stuff. I also have always loved making things with googley eyes! Who doesn’t love silly fun googley eyes? This project is super simple with just googley eyes and the electric votive lights. You can glue the eyes all over, just around the top or bottom, or just two eyes looking at you. They might stare at you a little but they are cute as can be. I used colorful googley eyes to give it some extra fun. You can put them on a plate with a bunch of extra googley eyes surrounding the lights for decorations. What you need to make googley eye Halloween lights: Electric tea light/votives Googley eyes, a variety pack of colors and sizes Hot glue, if you are making them with kids use a different kind of glue 1. Starting around the top edge glue eyes on one by one. 2. Continue to glue them around to the bottom. You can cover the entire lights or just some like I did. 2. That’s all there is to it! Wait for night and turn them on! I mostly just got daytime pictures because it was harder to see the nighttime pictures but trust me they look really cute when the lights are on at night. You can see some of the colors of the eyes but the colors show off best in the day. They are cute glowing and staring at you with all of their eyes! You can make a bunch and line them all up in a row on a table or spread them out throughout a room. They are just too too cute! DIY Monster Lights

Monster Party Hats

| DIY, Halloween

Let’s do the mash, do the monster mash. I’m ready to party like a monster with some cute party hats. I love love these monster party hats. There are a few ways to make them with more added embellishments or super simple and suuuper easy. I like to show both ways so you busy mommas can save time when needed. My crafty party desires always exceed my amount of time to make things. I do have to say the blue monsters with the added fringe are my favorite. It could be that blues my favorite of the colors. I have blue, green, and orange monsters. These are just from a cheap pack of colorful party hats in a variety of colors. I’ve been holding on to these hats for a while and I finally found a way to use them. Love these for Halloween kids parties or a monster themed birthday party for your little monster. read more

DIY Llama Pumpkin

| Crafts, DIY, Fall, Halloween

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. read more

DIY Cactus Pumpkin

| Crafts, DIY, Fall, Halloween

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. read more

| DIY, Fall, Halloween

pumpkin unicorn diy

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! read more

Popsicle Stick Leaf Doll

| DIY, Fall, kids craft

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! read more

Unicorn Fairy Garden

| Crafts, DIY

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! read more

Floral Bunny Headband

| DIY, Easter

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. read more

Bunny Napkins

| Crafts, DIY, Easter

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. read more

Mermaid Easter Basket

| DIY, Easter

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. read more
