Fruit Ice Cream Cones

| Desserts, DIY, Ice Cream, Pineapples

Summer is the perfect time for fruit and for ice cream. Well this doesn’t include a lot of actually fruit more like ice cream that looks like fruit. Does fruit flavor ice cream count as fruit? I’d say it does! I made cute little fruit ice cream cones that look like watermelons and pineapples. Two of my favorite cute fruits! Confession I didn’t have a ton of ice cream because everyone in my family ate the ice cream before I could use it. Don’t they know prop ice cream when they see it! They didn’t turn out as full as I would like because of the lack of ice cream but you get the idea.

Mermaid Party Favors with Printable Tags

| DIY, Mermaid party, mermaid party favors

Summer is coming up and do you know what that means, mermaids! When I was a kid(okay also as an adult) I was obsessed with mermaids. My sister, cousins, and I would pretend to be mermaids. My grandmother would put us in the hammock and pretend that we were mermaids in a net. Bath time got a little splashy with splashing our mermaid tails. My parents had to sit through The Little Mermaid about fifty million times and that’s barely exaggerating! I’m a mermaid on the inside and this week on the blog I am letting my mermaid love out with some fun mermaid party ideas. Starting with these adorable mermaid party favors that look like mermaid tails. They are so easy to make and not to mention crazy affordable since they are made out of tissue paper!

Spring is my favorite and least favorite time of year all wrapped into one. I love it because, where I live in Phoenix, the weather is perfect! The flowers bloom and we get fields of beautiful yellow flowers. It is also the best time to get outside before the dreaded heat takes over. However, when the beautiful flowers start to bloom so do my allergies. All I want to do is be outside all the time, but my allergies say nope, no way, not going to happen. Do other people have talking allergies or is it just me? Since early adulthood I have experienced seasonal allergies. Unfortunately my allergies affect my ability to enjoy those beautiful flowers and the outdoors during spring. My daughter cannot stay inside when it’s nice out and I do my best to just deal with my constant runny nose.

How To Make A Paper Cactus Garden

| Centerpieces, Cinco De Mayo, Decorations, DIY

I love plants but have never been able to keep them alive. I can even kill a cactus, it’s true I have killed about 5 cacti. I made this easy cactus garden out of paper that you can’t kill. The best thing is you can make a bunch of these and you don’t have to remember to do anything after. These are fun decorations for parties or home. You can put the paper cacti in a vase with sand too but I have these fun fiesta style paper printable holders for them. Get the printable CLICK HERE

Tissue Paper Butterflies

| Crafts, Decorations, DIY

Continuing with my butterlfy fun I have these adorable butterfly decorations. We just made these for at home for fun. I’m starting to decorate for spring and these were just an easy DIY decoration. If you get a pack of 24 sheets of tissue paper at the dollar store you can make 12 large tissue paper butterflies! They are just as easy as my Tissue Paper Fiesta Flowers, check those out too! You can make them both for spring flowers and butterflies, they go hand in hand. I chose bright fun colors for these but you can really do any colors you want. Butterflies come in so many different colors. We go to this place called butterfly wonderland that has a rain forest type room where the butterflies are flying all around. My daughter tries to get them to land on her but she mostly chases them away by running after them. She gets so excited if one lands on her, it is the cutest! She loves butterflies so much. She also wants a butterfly room for her bedroom and these are a cheap and easy decoration to have in her room.

DIY Butterfly Headband

| Crafts, DIY

My daughter loves butterflies. She has a few butterfly dresses and they needed a cute headband to match them. This was an easy headband to make. We used card stock paper but you could also use felt. Then we added a little glitter glue to give it some more sparkle. She loves this new headband. She had a bunch of plain headbands that she never wears and I thought they could use a little makeover. This is a crazy easy diy butterfly headband. I love that it looks like a little butterfly is resting on top of her head.

Butterfly Confetti

| Crafts, DIY

This week we are all about the butterflies! It feels like spring and the butterflies are out and about. We love butterflies and my daughter has loved the butterfly projects. She really likes this one because she got to throw something and make a mess. I’m not sure if you can tell from the picture above but that is butterfly confetti. You can really tell in person and when it is “flying” around it looks really cool. It is easy to make confetti with tissue paper and this butterfly confetti is simple to make for fun or butterfly parties. I went to a wedding that had a butterfly theme and they had butterfly confetti. I thought it was really cool and would make a fun project to make at home. You can buy it I’m sure but why buy when you can easily DIY, right?!

Easter Chick Lollipops

| DIY, Easter

Spring is in the air, the flowers are blooming and before you know it Easter will be here! Are you guys ready for Easter? I’m ready for Easter crafts but I am trying to limit my sugar intake at the moment. Hi my name is Valerie and I’m a sugar addict. Admitting it is the first step, right?! Don’t worry I am still going to be making lots of yummy treats because I just love baking. I think maybe I will just try it all in moderation. Back to my point I made these Easter chick lollipops because they are easy to make and give out to friends. You can also put them in an Easter basket or serve on Easter. I personally also can resist the lollipops so as a mom to make just for the kiddo and her friends they are a winner! I love Easter chicks they are an underrated Easter animal watch out bunnies the chicks are taking over! It’s also International Women’s Day so there we go double chick love!
